    I have been toying with the idea of buying a kydex molding kit, is there anyone in the portland - gresham - Milwaukee area that has a kydex molding setup that wouldn't mind me coming by and getting some first hand experience ?

    Here's a decent tutorial.
    http://www.m4carbine.net/showthread.php?64714-How-to-make-a-Kydex-holster-Picture-Tutorial

    I was actually wanting a couple kydex holsters, but now I'm thinking I might just buy the stuff and make them myself.
    You can buy all the stuff for around $100 and then build a good foam press out of wood and a set of hinges.
    With that $100 ai should be able to make at least a couple holsters and mag pouches.
    Even if I screw one up.

    Check this site out for the goods

    that's an awesome write-up.
    looks like the value kit with the loops is only $59.
    then get yourself some leather and make a hybrid holster similar to the SuperTuck. :D

    I just read it last night. And have been watching videos today too.

    So it was fresh in my mind.
    I'm going to order some goodies in about a week and get to making some new gear.
