There a few good, reputable Kydex holster and sheath manufacturers selling prefabricated products for common applications. If you buy an ordinary or "popular" gun, do not modify it and like to carry it just like everyone else does; these are your best and quickest ways to get a good Kydex, Concealex or ABS holster. We specialize in custom solutions to holster and sheath hindrances and custom fitting your weapon to your usage. For example, if you buy a holster that almost works the way you want it to, but cannot find a "closer to your usage" model - we correct the imperfection with a corrected version of your holster in Kydex or Concealex. In some cases (pistols with scopes or laser sights), a factory made holster may not even be available for a common application.

"The company is the brainchild of Edward Kaye, who is both the owner and the design genius behind Stellar Rigs' custom holsters and sheaths.
Kaye's involvement in the custom carry market was initially as a consumer. A small framed man, he nevertheless liked to carry large knives such as the "Rambo III." The problem was that there was simply no rig available which would let an average sized human carry a blade that large without attracting a whole lot of
unwanted attention. So, Kaye set about designing his own rig, made entirely from synthetics. When he was done, he had a nylon and Kydex device that would enable just about anyone to carry the huge blade under a light vest or jacket without arousing so much as a glance from passers by. Spurred on by his success, and by what he perceived to be the endless possibilities of the Kydex
medium with which he worked, Kaye set about designing rigs for a variety of knives and pistols. Many of his products serve niche markets, and include holsters for guns that no other manufacturer fits. Indeed, 80% of Stellar's business comes from one of a kind custom orders! "

I carry a Kel Tec P32 all the time. I carry a GLOCK in addition when I can.
I have a pocket holster from Andrews Custom leather http://www.andrewsleather.com that I had for an old Beretta that I sold. I re-wet-molded it and it works great for the P32 in a lot of pants. The problem was that in baggy pants with large, flat bottomed pockets, it does not stabilize the P32. The whole thing rolls one way or the other, as the bottom of the holster is curved. I was also looking for a holster that carried an extra mag. The reasoning behind this is: The .32 is a weak caliber and so if I need to use it I will be placing a lot of shots on each target; Most malfunctions come from a bad mag or bad ammo; I don't keep anything else in the same pocket as a handgun. I recently ordered a Stellar Rigs Kydex holster with the optional additional mag carrier. http://www.stellarrigs.com/kydexholsters.html I could not be happier with it. The tension is adjustable, and the P32 pops right out when needed, but is held in place when you don't. It fills out my square bottom pockets very well, and the rig stays upright. It does not print very much, and what print there is absolutely does not look like a gun. All that being said, I would not have it as my only holster, as it is too big for some shorts pockets, and the Andrews holster fits some pockets better, but as a second holster it fills its role EXTREMELY well.
