Unblinking Eye
Holster Pattern

Start by making a pattern from stiff cardboard.  Pictured is a pattern for a Kel-Tec P32 holster with magazine holder. I’ve discovered that I can use this pattern, with minor modifications, for many small semi-auto pistols.  You can start from scratch with a rectangle about 7 or 8 inches long and 3 to 4 inches high, and round the corners with a coin.  The lines show the position of the gun on the left and the magazine on the right; they are at approximately 15 from vertical.  You will need to curve the bottom line down, as necessary, to cover the barrel of the pistol, and the top line up to cover the trigger guard of the gun but leave the rear sight uncovered.  The belt slots can be adjusted for the size of belt.  Most men’s belts are 1.5 inches, but many law enforcement belts are 2 inches.  Dress belts are often smaller, but are rarely suitable for supporting a gun.  My preference is for a 1.5 inch belt in thick leather.
