not sure about the area there...but blade-tech makes excellent kydex style holsters. they will ship to you in a about 7 days, so the wait isn't too long. you can go online and check out their products and they will be more than happy to send you a nice color catalog via mail. their web address is:

Don't know why one would limit their search for "Custom" Kydex? You can get true Custom work/fitting done from Ky-Tac @ http://hometown.aol.com/kytac Cen-Dex @ http://www.cen-dex.com and MD Labs {aka "Mad Dog"} @ http://www.mdenterprise.com/holsters.htm Ky-Tac comes with screw tension adj. built in. The later two will build to suit your retention requirements for CCW, IDPA, etc. from very secure to speed for straight competition or in-between. All 3 makers hand mold & hand finish to a real "live" pistol not an aluminum slug, etc. You don't pay anymore than the mass produced, sometimes junk, sharp-edged "waffle-iron", unfinished or "cookie-cutter" Kydex that's often "Thick as a Brick" with poor retention and very marginal to unacceptable belt loop design, etc. If they don't get the retention just as you specify they will re-work the holster for you.

I'm looking for custom because I'm looking for a holster for a .22 target/hunting pistol. (The simple nylon holsters are Gander Mountain, et al, are tolerable, but I'd really like something good and secure for long hikes.)

It's been my impression that almost no one makes kydex for a .22, since its' considered a "tactical" accesory...

Billings Mt would be the closest quality custom maker I know of.

Frank Piper worked in my custom shop for more then 2 years and produced premium quality work. Frank is still active duty Navy and is attached to the Reserve Marine Recon unit in Billings. He has nearly 20 years time all with Special ops. He is more then worth contacting.

Who are you talking about with this statement? No mass produced Kydex holster I know of fits that description.
