How to make a nerf holster

I finished my drop leg Nerf holster and I thought I would share. It is my second attempt at making one. The first was large and boxy. This one can be adjusted to fit a Disruptor.

I added some instructions in case anyone would like to attempt it. Feel free to make adjustments to the design!

Oh wow. you really went all out. I just make all my tactical gear out of cardboard, duct tape, velcro, and hot glue.

You kids and your fancy new fangled fabric contraptions!

Instead of hot glue use barge cement, most cosplayers use it to adhere foam together.

Barge cement? Will that glue fabric to foam too?

Here are the links to the rest of the pics. I am still a bit new at this.

Great! Did you hand sew this thing? That's dedication right there, I'd bust several needles on the machine before trying that.

Looks like it's not on your instructions, but builders also appear to need some grommets and shock cord (or sim) to keep the blaster from falling through the front.

I had to hand sew it. There is no way a machine would be going through hot glue. I had to use pliers to push and pull the needle through. The needle that I used was a beast! I had broken a few others beforen I tried this one.

I added a few grommets and snaps after I made the instructions. It would hold an Disruptor just fine but the shock cord on the bottom was needed to keep the Hammershot in place. Paracord or really anything else could be used. I was really surprised as to how easy it is to add the grommets and snaps.

Nerf guns are something that will never die. They have been around since I was little and will still be here when my kids have kids.

We all have memories of our brothers chasing us with a Nerf gun, staging wars with the other kids in the neighbourhood and even terrorizing the family pets (sorry Spot).

Here is a a cool little project you can do with your kids to add a little personal flare to your kids (or your own) Nerf gun set. Here is ow to make a Nerf gun bullet holster!

How To Sew A Nerf Gun Bullet Holster

How to make a nerf holster

For this I am using an old pair of jeans and some off cuts of material. The jean material ensures the holster is sturdy and I have used the material for a nice soft shoulder pad.

How to make a nerf holster

Step 1: Take measurements across your kids bodies whee the holster is going to sit. I made mine so the kids could wear them like a sash.

How to make a nerf holster

Step 2: Once you have the measurements cut a strip out of the jeans leg for each holster. I made mine 4 inches wide (seam allowance included).

How to make a nerf holster

Step 3: Iron the seam allowance edges on the inside.

How to make a nerf holster

Step 4: Fold in half, stitch the edges of each length with right sides together.

How to make a nerf holster

Step 5: Then turn the corners out so that the wrong sides are on the inside.

Step 6: Then line up the edges and stitch the opening closed. The result is a very neat looking belt. I also stitched velcro onto each end.

How to make a nerf holster

Step 7: The next step is to add the loops that hold the bullets to the belt. I have used plain black cotton tape for that since I already had it. Any ribbon or elastic would do the job too. I stitched the beginning of the roll of cotton tape to the end of the belt and then measured each space by positioning a bullet loosely and then pinning the cotton to the denim. The fitting should be loose enough for a bullet to be loaded quickly, but tight enough not to fall straight through.

Step 8: Stitch the tape to the belt at each pin interval. Don’t cut the cotton tape from the roll before you’ve measured and pinned all the loops. When you’re happy with the amount of loops, cut the cotton tape, fold raw edge under and stitch in place.

I made loops across the entire length of the belt; the idea being that they can just pull the belt across to the front when they need more bullets. However, after a day of play, I can tell you that it wasn’t necessary as the kids completely forgot about that option and only reloaded the front of the belt!

There you have it! YourNerf gun bullet holster! I hope the kids (or you) enjoy!

Unfortunately this bullet holster does not come with an automatic bullet picker-upperer (im still trying to figure out something there).

How to make a nerf holster

New to the site, have been lurking around for a while and am newly back into the ‘Nerf scene’ you could say.

I was in search of a 35 round magazine holder and never found much content on the net, so I set to making my own custom holder.

I made two versions of the same design. The first version was made entirely of cardboard, hot glue and black duct tape so as to get an idea if the design would actually work and if it was practical in the field.

The design I came up with is a back mounted holder which loops through a normal belt. The magazine simply slides into the holder and is secured using a nylon strap and a velcro tab. It worked quite well and I was very satisfied with it in the field as it allowed me to carry a second 35 mag and gave me the ability to quickly draw it out to reload.

The only issue was the actual construction. As it was made with cardboard/duct tape/hot glue, it wasn’t exactly solid, but has held up pretty good considering.

Alas I opted to upgrade and start version 2.0.

For the second version I decided to work with fibreglass. It is strong, light and very easy to mold and create smooth curves.

I had an old 35 mag in which the casing was cracked and went to work. I essentially stuck to the original design and the final product came out nicely. I lined the inside of the holder in both plastic and felt cloth. The plastic was used in the tip where the magazine slots in the the dart blaster. The body of the holder was lined with felt to give it a snug fit and reduce any rattling sounds that would give away your position as you moved.

I do not have pics with me at the moment, but if people are interested, I can certainly post some up.

Im sorry, I didnt catch something, did you use the broken casing in this drum holster or just to form the shape?

Nonetheless, Pretty neat. Can you show a few more pics of it attached on to you?

How to make a nerf holster

In regards to the questions, I simply used the damaged 35 mag to get the shape. (SeeI pics) I added layers of cardboard to the mag, using hot glue to hold the cardboard on the sides to build up the height and even the shape of the drum so the curve would be right. If you simply wrap a material around the drum, you will notice that due to the design of the drum, it will be angled ever so slightly.

I then created the curved by using layers of Bristol board. I used several layers so that I could account for the extra space I would need later to add the felt lining to the finished product.

After the Bristol board was attached, I created a top and bottom plate and the same again on the mag tube which inserts into the dart blaster. I essentially completely encased the entire magazine inside the Bristol board.

Then I began to add 2 layers of fibreglass in different stages to the entire mag.

Once I had 2 layers completed, I did minor sanding to smooth the rough edges and then cut the magazine out using a Dremel tool. You can see how I cut the mag out, I simply cut a pie shape off the end and pulled it out.

Next, I removed all the Bristol board. It comes off pretty easily and you are left with a nice fibreglass case.

After that, it was simply a matter of creating the back belt mount, adding resin to smooth out the edges and low spots, sand, paint and add the felt lining.

The strap is actually set into the fibreglass so there is no worries of it coming off.

In the regards to cost/time: this was the first remake, so it did take some time prepping the mag to use as a mould, etc. in between work and waiting for the resin to set, it took about 2 weeks to complete. Cost is minimal but varies where you buy your materials. You need chopped fibreglass mat, resin, hardener, cardboard/Bristol board, sand paper/sander, dremel/cutting tool, strap/Velcro, felt and paint, hot glue and some tape.

If you collect Nerf Blasters like I do, then the chances are high that you have more N-strike rail accessories than you know what to do with. Lots of blasters come with them, but, in my opinion, there aren’t many accessories that are worth using. Flashlights that barely work, and sights and scopes that are just for show aren’t much use in a Nerf battle or Humans vs Zombies game. However, a holster is.

It even works with the Rough Cut 2×4. The Spectre works as well. It will work with the Recon/Retaliator, the Maverick, and the Scout as well. However, since the tactical rail on these blasters is mounted on the slide, there is a lot more bouncing around. With the solid mounted tactical rails, the holster holds the blasters securely. I have run around, and jumped up and down without losing the blaster.

My son is obsessed with Nerf Guns! For his sixth birthday he wants to have a Nerf War Birthday Party! Since he is the ‘Birthday Boy’ I’ve decided he needs a special Nerf Ammo Belt so that he can stand out. I actually had everything on hand to sew this Nerf Ammo Belt. If you sew I’m sure you have everything on hand as well. This Simple DIY is so easy anyone can make this!! The hardest part about this DIY is holding down the reverse button while I sew in reverse.

Supplies:

  • Nerf Bullets
  • 1″ Elastic
  • Old woven belt
  • Matching thread for belt and elastic
  • Sewing Machine

How to make a nerf holster

Step 1: The first thing you need to do is cut your elastic. I fastened the belt and used the length of the belt to measure my elastic. I should have allowed for more in order to cover the entire front. I used matching green thread to thread through my needle and black for the bobbin.

How to make a nerf holster

Step 2: Next, you need to secure your elastic to your belt using your #4 zigzag setting. If you choose you can pin your elastic in place before you sew if you are not very experienced.

How to make a nerf holster

Step 3: You need a Nerf Bullet to use as a guide get it as close as you can to the zipper foot and remove the bullet before you begin sewing. I used my #0 setting for my thread and used my reverse button to secure the elastic. Continue this process until you get to the end of your elastic. Then repeat Step #2.

Show off your Nerf!
Made from real leather, this Nerf Maverick Holster is perfect for showing off that fully-modded Nerf gun with your costumes. (Unfortunately I got the holster done before my wife modded her nerf 😛 ) Designed for the Steampunk enthusiast who wants to show off all the hard work they have put into their gun, the open design lets the world see your creation.

The thigh strap is removable and adjustable. I made 2 strap lengths to connect the holster to either your pants belt or a harness. The short strap for pants, the long strap for harness or if you prefer a very low-slung gun.

This week Coleton my 10 year old wanted to buy a holster at Target for his hand held Nerf gun. When I saw what he wanted to spend TEN DOLLARS on I said "Buddy, I think I can make that better, for NOTHING. let me try and if you don't like what I make, then I will bring you back here and you can spend you money on this one." He agreed in a very grudging and reluctant manner. but here's what I came up with. I used scrap leather I had on hand. They were scraps from a furniture store, you know the sample pieces they use to showcase available colors? Yeah so GO ME for GOING GREEN.  To create the holster itself, I simply sewed a pouch up three sides and cut two slices in the back panel for a belt to thread through. He LOVED IT!  But then said "Can you like sew a strip onto the front so that I can use it to hold darts?" All I could think was "Ummm kid, ya shouldda thought of that BEFORE I sewed over and over on the seams to be sure they held for all time. " But instead I said "Well I can't sew, but I can HOT GLUE. " 🙂 Who doesn't love their hot glue gun?? So being that it was a leather project I got our my High Temp Pro Glue Gun from Adhesive Tech. ( I am being compensated to showcase Ad Tech now, but you know I don't showcase anything unless I actually use it and feel it does a good job!)  Now the reason I am pointing out my use of HOT glue is because if I were to have used my Lo Temp Glue it may not have held the leather pieces to one another as securely as I am sure my little man is going to need.

 So here's the photo I took of the gun, the pouch and the Nerf darts. Sorry, I snapped them all with my iPhone as I wasn't thinking we were going to be making a blog post out of this but realized it would be good to document it anyway. and well now, it's become a blog post. So read on to see how we did it.

To begin I cut a strip that was wider than the pouch and grabbed the five darts he said he would like it to hold. I made the strip thinner than the darts are long so that the darts could fit in and be taken out from either end.

I then hot glued one end of the strip and placed the first dart under the strip and measured how far away I would place the next line of glue. As you can see I didn't use a large amount of glue, just enough to hold that leather strip tight.

I then pressed and held between each dart as I placed it into the dart hodling strip.

My strip of leather wasn't QUITE long enough by the time I got to the end, so I had to add an extra loop of leather. Note the closer loop at the end? Once I did it that was I kinda had wished it was all like that! Oh well – next time! LOL

Coleton LOOOOVES his new holster and the upgrade of holding the darts was a major score. Oh and I told him – he owes me ten bucks. make it fifteen – this holster holds darts too! ;)
