And here are two very manly nerfers sporting my holster design.
Hoongfu and I have been using these all summer, and they work incredibly well. They are held onto the back of our vests with a set of rare earth magnets. (Which you can easily purchase on ebay.) They are placed on the blaster with epoxy putty like this.
Note, the magnets were arranged in such a way that their polarity is the opposite of their neighbor. This is important as it allows the blaster to snap into a specific orientation. This makes the blaster always stick to the exact same location on the holster every single time.
Now onto the holster. It's a piece of ultra high density polyethylene with epoxy putty also holding the magnets in place and the magnets are arranged to pair with the ones on the nitefinder. The magnets are also in stacks of two to make the hold stronger. I then wrapped the magnets in duct tape. This is to prevent the magnets from shattering each other when coming in contact. (Yep, they're that strong.)
I put some velcro on both sides of the holster, then put corresponding pieces of velcro on both sides of the insides of a pocket of my vest. I found that the best place to put a magnetic holster is somewhere your lower back. That part of your body won't move very much so there is close to zero chance of your blaster from falling off from moving about.
Here's a video demonstrating the blaster sticking to its holster.
This holtser works REALLY well. I'd say pulling out this blaster is faster than even just priming my crossbow. Hope this was helpful and hope some of you will try making one.
