You guys should make molded kydex holsters for the Tac 8 and TPX. Maybe with color schemes or different sizes (i.e. half or fully covered.)
a lot of speedballers haven't realized that their $500+ guns can, in fact fire one round at a time.

Eh, due to the limited market and possible field rules (i.e, it needs something visibly holding it into the holster such as a strap), the only real option would be as a made to order custom shop type of deal, which would probably run around 70$ a holster, not counting start up for the cost of the injection machine/press to make them, plus cost of materials. Just doesn't seem cost effective in the long run.

Just my $0.02.

Well, provided he can easily acquire all the needed items (and has the craftyness about him :laugh: ) that wouldn't be bad. But for a company to make them specifically for Paintball Pistols, which are generally larger than most handguns, would require more specialized molds (again, unless they had the bland look as the linked one, as opposed to being more detailed to fit with the marker) I can't exactly see it being viable for someone that's only going to do it once.

I have never come across a field that stated rules regarding holsters for paintball pistols, aside from the obvious requirement that you use a BBD on the pistol off the field or have a holster that can function as a BBD.

It's an interesting idea, and I would be tempted to pick one up for my T8 if SO made them.

Very good find there.

Now if only I could find a way to buy one. That looks great, and is pretty much what I would be looking for.

As in "afford one" or "a place that sells them"? If the latter: LINK. :)

You bought the brand, not my allegiance.

I'll have to look into what the shipping from Canada would run. If it's reasonable, then maybe...
