Shop update for October
« on: October 22, 2018, 12:23:05 pm »
So I wanted to post a little update on where things are and what I've been working on other than just building more holsters;) Because of course I've been doing that daily as usual;)

Tooling, so I mentioned in that previous thread about the new CAD designed tooling etc, that has been going gangbusters. I've been designing guns and tooling like crazy lately and the big news from that is for leather as well as kydex;) I did manage to crack the formula of sorts to making my own tooling for kydex so as of maybe a month or so ago all new holsters coming from the kydex shop are built on my own tooling that I designed and made. Even down to the minor stuff like the home/car mount that I make now has a revised version based completely on my own tooling I made in house.

So I added the Glock 43 and a few other things and I'm working on mounted lights shortly:




On the leather front I did this one the other day for a P30L which included an extension I built to convert it from the normal to L version:


This one doesn't include any crazy CAD work BUT it was crazy in itself, largest single order of appendix rigs I've done;)


The Closing Time holster as seen above got some updates with the changes I came up with from the Edict kydex version(the two holsters share ALLOT of DNA). Basically the fasteners and cam wings etc all carried over from the more refined versions I developed for the Edict. So the Closing Time got those updates so to speak. Which as you guys know is typically I'm always updating things as I figure out better ways to do them.

I've started doing some more blog posts about a variety of topics related to holsters etc, www.adamsholsters.com/blog/ if you haven't been there in a while and you've got an interest it's worth taking a look.

And I've got another announcement that isn't quite ready yet but will be coming soon;)

Take care!

    When I first looked at the pictures my brain reversed the logo to "HK".  Didn't think I was dyslexic before that.  ;)

    You know it's funny when I designed that logo I was just looking for something fairly modern and strong etc. Played around with colors and ideas and after a while came up with that.

    It took about 2 weeks before I realized it had similarities to any common logo's within firearms and then thought about it being KH vs HK and having the red;) Originally I was a little concerned about that to a degree but I think being that both letters are capital and I don't intend all versions to carry the red it's fine. HK can't claim KH is also their trademark I don't figure, and really I'm not making the same items etc so it should be fine to my non legal brain;)

    That said I dig the semi modern strong look of it still. Originally this whole endevour would have been named "Soulless Holsters" which was basically the whole steel and wood/leather has soul plastic doesn't. So I figured I'd run right at the joke;) But Sarah didn't like it and everyone else seemed to think it was a bad idea to make fun of my own products/designs;) Admittedly that's probably true, but guys who know me and my sense of humor there are very few things that I won't make fun of including my own work;)

    Looks good.  Both the holsters and the logo.  Glad to hear you're making progress.   :thumbup1

    Yep progressing forward;)

    This morning doing a little wheelgun rig for a j-frame testing out my tooling. Gotta make a few tweaks but v2 will be ready to go up on the site;)

    I love this  :thumbup2 .

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.
