From stuff I had laying around the house.
I had a sheet of kydex to replace the front switch panel on my bass boat, a slice of gas line for a belt loop spacer, and a 8-32 nut and bolt, used our toaster oven for the holster, and a hair dryer to form belt clip.
I should have taken more time, and done it when I was not already pissed off. I was supposed to be off work today, but the company I do work for has called and emailed me all day, over stupid crap that I can do nothing about from home. I needed to take a break from arguing with idiots, I know a onlooker could not tell the difference.
I was in a hurry before I got another phone call, and once the kydex was hot, I could not tell which was the smooth side, and which was the rough side, so I ended up making it with the smooth side out, DOH.
For a first time effort, I am happy how it turned out. it is extremely comfortable, and hides well.

I did not mind the smooth side out, but felt like the rough side was rubbing to much on the gun.
Redid it today with rough side out, after wearing it for a week I realized the clip needed to have two screws to stop it from shifting, made a longer clip so it would have room for two screws. Also flared the top a little to make re-holstering easier.
