    Local source for Kydex?

    Does anyone know of one? I am wanting to make a kydex "rack" for the door of my safe. Just curious if anybody knows of a show or place we could pick this, or something similar up. Admittedly, I don't know much about these materials. Is there something easier to find locally that would perform the same way?

    Do you know if it can be heat formed by chance? I will try to check out Meyer Plastics tomorrow. Thanks.

    Just get it online unless you just want to experiment with something else.

    I should mention that I am making "holsters" for the inside of my safe, not for carry. The pistol pouches/pockets are pulling the carpet away from the fireboard that is on the door. My plan is to make these and add a piece of carpeted wood to the door on top of the fireboard. Then I will screw these into that would for a secure hold. Retention isn't really vital in this application as my safe won't be running and jumping around. The stuff at Mendards is 1/4" thick. A little the to really heat form I think. At 54 bucks for a 4x8 sheet, I don't want to be stuck with it if it doesn't form well. Any ideas on what else to try? I was thinking about trying to cut up a storage tote and try that. They are like 3 bucks. Anyone ever tried this?

    I picked up a 12 x 12 piece of .093 at Tandy Leather in Indy (Speedway). Looks like there is a location in Fort Wayne also. There is also a Meyers Plastic location on the north side of Indy.

    Update!!! Meyer Plastics told me that Kydex is just a brand name. It is essentially ABS. Bought a whole 4x8 sheet for 37 bucks. Starting work on it tonight. I will post pics as they come. I also plan to do magazine holders since I have so much of the stuff.

    Kydex is a form of PVC.

    What about mounting a piece of pegboard and using hooks to hold through the trigger guards? As long as you don’t slam the door closed they should be safe and secure.
