Nice job on the project, once I figure my setup out I may copy it.

One comment on the project that I didn't mention in the PDF. IF you carry a Glock or any pistol without a mechanical safety, I would HIGLY recommend NOT keeping a round in the pipe. Unlike a kydex holster, there is nothing to guarantee that you can't accidently pull the trigger while holstering or unholstering the weapon. I built this one for a Glock 19 even though the picture shows a Tauris 24/7. I am going to make another one for my FNX tactical WITH the Supressor attached, just because I can...

Love the disclaimer!!! Echo the comments on "the other place". As one who occasionally carries while hammocking I too think this type of info needs to be shared. Anything that makes "carry life" easier and safer is a win-win in my book. Thank you for the how to, putting it on the ever growing list of projects.

Maybe PapaSmurf could offer a similar design............??? I like the RL gun pocket, but this takes that a step forward. Double duty and all

Here is the DIY project that turned me off to the 'other' hammock discussion forum. Personally, I think there are a lot of hammock campers who carry a gun. (I for one, carry it much more for two legged snakes than any real fear of wild animals.) However, sharing a pic of this organizer got me scolded and my pic removed. It was deemed political and not hammock related

For your enjoyment, here is how I manage a gun in a gathered end hammock.

I ask a question related to GPS and other gear, only to receive a scolding as well. I too have left that site.
A lecture about a GPS question? That is odd even elsewhere!

I like your plans and the idea. I wonder if using a heavier weight material, such as Cordura, could help with keeping the holster section stiffer? I have used your "outline method" to tighten up the fit of one of those cheaper holsters for my firearm.

Take it easy, glad to have you on hammockhangers.net :)

I have several Cordura versions in my supplies bin but didn't want to make it any heavier than it had to be. The truth is, it works well as is, I'm just Glock phobic.

I tend to agree. The volunteer security team I serve on requires me to carry the Glock
