We are truly in the dog days of summer in Nashville.  The heat has been unrelenting over the last few weeks.  This week we have seen highs near 100 F.  For those of you that use Kydex, you need to be mindful of leaving your holsters and mag pouches vehicles.

One of the greatest improvements in Kydex has been the ability of holster makers to offer a thinner material that makes the holsters less bulky and easier to use.  Most of the makers have done a good job balancing the need for sturdy material with the newer thicknesses.  The downside is that they will curl up or deform if left in your vehicle.

Kydex can be shaped and manipulated by using a heat gun for a few minutes.  Think of your car as the ultimate heat gun.  If it is hot, take your kydex with you.
