December Holster Contest!
« on: December 09, 2016, 01:51:46 PM »
We're going to be doing a give away, basically a $50 discount on a holster of your choice. The drawing will take place on the first of the month, and the specific rules  for the drawing will be laid out in an introductory post. We are still working out all the details and whatnot on this whole setup so things may change going forward.

But for this first one here is the rules. You need to post to get a number assigned once that number is assigned you will not get another number if you post again. So your not increasing your odds by posting more than once though your welcome to continue the conversation with more posts. Those numbers I'll assign in order, IE the first person to post will get #1 and second will get #2 and so on. Once the thread is locked say a day before the end of the month I'll go to a random number generator online and have it pick a number from the posts then I'll put a final post in the thread with the persons forum name announcing they won.

Then once the drawing is complete I'll send you a private message on WTA to get your full name as it will be listed on your order. When you place the order copy a link to the WTA thread so I can make sure that I've got the right person etc. And then I'll take care of applying the discount to the order for you. You'll still be responsible for the balance on the order once I get ready to build it out like I normally do less the $50 discount.

For now I'm not going to put a limit on the time frame you have to use the discount within, but I'd prefer guys use them fairly quickly just so I don't have to keep too many active at once and make things more confusing on my end.

Do keep in mind this doesn't effect where your order falls in my lead time. So once the contest is over, and the person who won places an order it falls into my normal timetable. Also that discount doesn't apply to orders already paid or complete. However if you've got an order still waiting that hasn't been paid for, then I'd be more than willing to apply the discount to that order for you.



Now onto this month's contest and how to enter.

So since it's the holiday season I've got a holiday related question for ya and slightly firearms related;) What sort of family traditions do you carry on for your family? And additionally what if anything are you planning on carrying during your Christmas season. And while that may be redundant for some guys who don't carry something special for special occasions, but that's more of what I'm thinking. I'm very interested though in your family traditions, since of course with our kids small I'm always looking for good additions they will enjoy, older guys with grown kids feel free to mention what you used to do with kids. As well you don't have to have kids to participate in that part, feel free to tell me about what you did tradition wise at Christmas now or when you were young.


I'm not eligible but I'll type mine up as an example below:
Quote
So Christmas time there are allot of things that I feel are necessary;) One is watching quite a few movies, sometimes with family but not always since Sarah doesn't enjoy the same movies I do at times;) But one I absolutely can't miss is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, that is a favorite of mine that I watch several times over the holidays. The typically old 60's versions of Frosty and Rudolph also make the cut I don't care for the new computer animated versions of either. We've started watching Polar Express with Eli the last couple years and I'm starting to warm to that one.

Christmas day we've made a point to not leave the house, it's our day to have with the kids other family is more then welcome. But typically we do our other family type of Christmas activities before or after Christmas so it's easier for planning. So we open presents and eat a nice big homemade ham dinner and just generally watch movies and spend time around the house. Since I'm seldom in the house it's a nice chance to really sit down and relax with family. I think part of the reason we started doing that is because my schedule used to keep me so busy during the holidays that I never saw my family(prior to holsters), and even now it's still pretty hectic;) So that chance to relax is just a really special day.

Carry wise oh I'm going to have to think a little more about what rigs I've got. I sold the rig I would have picked, so I know the gun will be my old original Combat Master and the holster will likely be one of my exotics in OWB. But I might be convinced to carry in a shoulder rig that day depending on what pants I'm wearing;) For other family events I'm going to be carrying my full sized 1911 in my full basketweave setup with matching mag carrier. It's a classic look that works well with a tucked in shirt etc. That's a pretty normal setup for family events for me, and typically it's a single mag, I prefer a double so if time permits I may design a new double mag carrier to match that design as well;)

    My family doesn't really keep in touch. Most of us kids are moved away and since moving out, the parents don't really hear much from us. Christmas time and the other holidays is one of the few times that we all come back home under the same roof and get to see one another.

    We do not watch movies or have any tradition like that, we merely all physically gather under the same roof and enjoy our traditional Christmas dinner of some sort of ham with large fresh baked buns/kaiser rolls/bruchen (there are also additional items made). It's basically one of the few times we get to check in and talk out of every several months of the year.

    Because I have a longer drive there, my BUG/driving gun comes with me. I'll be carrying my 642 in addition to my normal concealed handgun.

    I suppose my family is pretty simple, but it is nice to share a meal and open presents while getting to see my step siblings, the parents, and even Grandma.

    My family really doesn't have many traditions, which is something I'm hoping to change a little.

    We're buying a new gas stove, and I was talking to our plumber (we needed to extend our gas line for the new stove) - he mentioned he'd taken his grandson quail hunting at a program further south - "Hunt and Learn."  Sounded like a great program, and one I'd be interested in getting my son into when he's of age.  Apparently, they teach and stress gun safety, humane hunting techniques, and the importance of conservation programs.  They have separate programs for deer and quail... I hope they add feral hogs.  He said the guy in charge of the program had recently been promoted, but that he had been interested in adding hogs - hopefully, now he's in a position he can do that.

    I'm honestly not sure if he'll be interested, though - the little one's a sensitive soul (we were watching Toy Story a few weeks ago, and he started crying *hysterically* when Buzz & Woody got left at the gas station. And I mean *bawling*. We had to pause the movie and explain how everything would turn out alright).

    Lets see.  My mom always makes everyone pajamas to be opened on Christmas eve.  The kids have a big slumber party in the upstairs family room that night.  I think that is the big Christmas holiday tradition my kids will remember.

    A few years back I bought all the kids AR lowers.  Since then it has become a bit of tradition for them to get AR related stuff on the holidays and birthdays.  Two of them have completed their builds this year, and two more have completed lowers.

    There is a gun related surprise this year, but in case any of my kids happen on here, I won't let the cat out of the bag yet.  And, shipping might mean Christmas in January.  After it happens I will post up pictures.

    We always have Thanksgiving and Christmas combined. The wife and I will be headed out tomorrow morning to my parents home in western OK.

    Food is usually started around 9-10am with it being officially served somewhere around 1pm. The food is usually tex/mex of some sort, nachos, queso, chips, flat breads, various dips etc out on the table at start for snacking etc. Then the real lunch will be burritos, enchiladas, tacos, tamales and beans + rice. 

    My 'uncle' Gary will always eat with us. He has been friends with my father since they were very young, but he is not blood relation in any way. My real brother and my 'other' brother(again no relation to me just been friends with him forever) + minions will be there as well. It is usually 15-20 folks or so all told with blood kin + 'other' family.

    There is usually a sorta show and tell of new toys during the day after lunch. It can be new trucks, tools, gadgets or guns for the guys along with various odds and ends for the ladies of the family.

    There may also be some hunting in the evening for quail/pheasant if weather permits. The hunt would usually be the older folks take a stand and the younger folks + dogs push birds to them. If the quail hunt was on. It was fanciest shotguns since no one was busting brush that day. It was a mostly shooting the breeze sorta thing than in earnest hunting. Any deer/coon/hog/coyote hunting is the day before or the day after the meal.

    There will also be physical training of some sort come morning and evenings. Most the family + friends were/are athletes of various types. Dad, Gary, Armando(other brother to me), myself and my brother will usually start and end the day on 2 mile runs. My cousin Corena would do 6-10 miles since she does marathons and triathlons. The young ones/ladies walk, bike or just run amok about the country side as they chose.

    Completely understandable certainly no one give away gift information I don't want any surprises given;) I know how difficult it can be to keep kids/wives from finding out;)

    Good posts from everyone I'm reading and thinking;)

    We don't really have any Christmas traditions anymore.  :'( But when I was a kid, we had tradition up the wazoo.

    We've always had an artificial tree since Mama Raptor and Little Brother have asthma and a real pine tree would probably cause them to have an attack. Little Brother and I would help Papa Raptor assemble the tree, Papa Raptor would put up the lights, then Mama Raptor would supervise Little Brother and I while we put up the ornaments.

    Christmas Eve, Mama Raptor, Papa Raptor, Little Brother, and I would go into Philly for Tenth Presbyterian Church's "Christmas Eve Carols and Lessons" service, which alternated between the ministers and elders reading the passages of scripture that tell of Christ's birth, and the congregation and choir singing all of the traditional Christmas hymns. Westminster Brass would play, and the Curch's music minister at that time was an incredibly talented organist. Hundreds of people would attend, to the point where by the end, the church had to add a second Carols and Lessons on December 23rd. Papa Raptor has always called the service, "a preview of what Heaven is going to look like." I'm not really all that religious anymore, but I'm still inclined to agree with him.

    Christmas Morning, Little Brother and I would wake Mama and Papa Raptor up far too early, then we'd all go downstairs. Mama and Papa Raptor always had to take a picture of the tree with all the presents underneath it. Then they'd take pictures of us in front of the tree with all the presents. Only then could the opening of presents commence. Talk about torturing your kids.  ;)  I'd inevitably get sick at some point during the morning, which we eventually traced to an as-yet-undiagnosed blood sugar issue. After presents, we'd have breakfast, Papa Raptor would assemble the traditional massive Lego/K'Nex set one of us would receive, and then in the afternoon we'd go over to Mom-Mom's house (my maternal grandmother), and open the presents from her and Uncle Boogs (my Mom's brother, and I don't remember where the nickname came from). Then we'd all eventually make our way back to our house. Uncle Boogs would drive into the city and pick up Aunt Fran (actually Mom-Mom's sister, so my great-aunt), and we'd all have Christmas dinner. Mom-Mom's family was pure Italian (Mama Raptor's b@stard-inbred-son-of-a-whore father walked out on them when she was a kid, so I never met him or that side of the family), so dinner was always *huge!*. That's one tradition that actually hasn't died. Mama Raptor doesn't know how to do "small" meals.

    The Saturday after Christmas, we'd drive out to Lancaster County for Christmas with the Raptor Clan. Grandma and Grandpa (paternal grandparents), my two aunts and uncles (Papa Raptor's brothers and their wives) and all of our cousins. We'd exchange gifts, have another big dinner - this one usually catered by the 55+ community where Grandma and Grandpa lived, and sit around and catch up on what everyone had been done since we'd seen each other last. The Raptor Clan was spread out even then, with one set of aunt, uncle, and cousins living in Tennessee and the other living on the Philly/Jersey border near Trenton (right about where Washington crossed the Delaware, believe it or not).

    Sadly, the traditions have pretty much all faded away. Aunt Fran passed away many years ago. Me, Little Brother, and my cousins who lived out near Jersey all grew up and went off to college (Papa Raptor's youngest brother is I think 12 years younger than him, and his oldest is about 15 years younger than me), though we all still usually made it to the annual family gathering. Uncle Boogs committed suicide just over eight years ago, and Mom-Mom rapidly developed Alzheimer's shortly thereafter. She first moved in with us, and then into elder care and then a nursing home, so that tradition ended.

    Grandpa passed away my senior year of college. Me, Little Brother, and the older set of cousins all graduated shortly thereafter and  jobs or went off to grad school, and most of us moved far away from home. It's been rare than all of us have made it to any family gathering at once in the last 5-6 years. I was the worst offender, not entirely my fault since I never could get off from work any time around the holidays when I worked at the supermarket. It didn't bother me much since Grandma and I have never really gotten along, but I did miss my cousins. My uncle who lived out near Jersey finally succumbed to a brain tumor almost three years ago. The Raptor Clan family gatherings kind of died with him.  Those of us who are left try to get together over the holidays, but it's becoming increasingly difficult, especially since Mama Raptor, Papa Raptor, and I moved to the other side of the state.

    Even Tenth Church's Carols and Lessons Service is no more. The church's new senior pastor is a sociopathic narcissist who always has to constantly be the center of attention and can't tolerate anyone or anything that steals his limelight. He publicly slandered and libeled the music minister, got him fired, and then permanently cancelled Carols and Lessons shortly thereafter.

    This Christmas, I think it's just going to be Mama Raptor, Papa Raptor, Little Brother, and me. There probably won't be anything under the tree -- though honestly Mama Raptor's the only one who's broken up about that -- but Mama Raptor will still cook way too much delicious food and we'll feast on leftovers for a week, and then every night after dinner we'll play hearts.

    Come to think of it, a new tradition seems to be developing. Last year, we drove east to Philly to visit what's left of the Raptor Clan, then down to North Carolina to visit Mama Raptor's sister and her family, then down to Florida to the community where Mama and Papa Raptor own a lot (that they haven't built on yet). We spent two weeks down there before driving back up by way of Georgia (I think?) to visit some of Papa Raptor's cousins. We'll be doing the same thing this year, only I'll be flying out and meeting them in Florida, and Little Brother and I will both be flying out early since I couldn't get the entire time off from work and Little Brother's semester starts up. I could've probably asked for the extra three days to make the drive with the family, but I didn't want to push it since I'm brand new (started the job in September), but now I think I should have. Like I said, Grandma and I have never really gotten along, but this is probably going to be her last Christmas.

    As for what I'll be carrying... honestly, I won't be. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I've let my PA Carry License lapse. Not that big a deal as far as Christmas goes since as far as I know we won't be going anywhere that day, but as for the rest of it... yeah, I know. New Year's Resolution #1 is to correct that situation. Resolution #2 is to get a pocket pistol of some sort.

    We're a small clan these days and we keep it fairly simple.  Where our tradition differs from many is we open gifts on Christmas eve instead of Christmas day.  Christmas day is reserved for relaxing and getting a dinner together which is usually served mid afternoon.  Christmas music is played throughout the evening as well as the following day and sometimes we sing along with favorites. 

     On Christmas eve we typically do our version of the Italian "feast of the seven fishes".  Typically its only two or three varieties at our house but the idea is the same and it follows in my wife's family tradition.  At any rate its basically an Italian style meal on Christmas eve and dinner on Christmas day is typically some kind of roast beef.   Last year it was Chateaubriand and the year before I think it was Beef Wellington.  This year its probably going to be a crown roast or something similar. 

    All the immediate family lives close enough for us to get together for one or both dinners.   Grandkids is a fairly new phenomenon for Mrs. c and I so we are still enjoying that aspect of the holiday and trying to avoid overdoing it.  Not.   :cool   

    I manage to be in the middle of the cooking process and find it cumbersome to carry a gun while so engaged.  There are weapons ( besides the knife in my hand ) nearby should the need arise.

    When we all lived in the Midwest, my family would celebrate Christmas on the eve, then drive to the grandparents for Christmas Day itself, alternating every year to be fair, of course.  That changed to flying when the family was distributed across the country.  Now my wife, my son and I have our own little tradition.  The day after Thanksgiving we get out the Christmas tree and decorations, fire up the Christmas tunes and decorate the tree.  I get out the electric train and put it around the base of the tree (repels cats and attracts puppies, FYI), then go outside and put up the house lights.  Mind you, we are never here for Christmas proper, but it just seems right, somehow.  When we get to the Grandparents' (my wife's Mom or my parents) house, we help decorate trees, help cook homemade egg noodles, go present shopping, and just catch up in general.


    I suspect this may be the last Christmas that my side of the family celebrates like this.  My father is in ill health, and my older brother refuses to make the time to go see him, even for Christmas.  I think he is in denial.  I hope and pray things go better than I expect. 


    My wife's side of the family will still gather and celebrate, which makes me smile and tear up as I type this for some reason unknown to me.



    I won't be carrying for Christmas, as we fly, which is a hassle under the best of conditions and a nightmare during the holidays, so no point in adding checking a firearm, even though I could carry my normal handgun in Florida and Georgia, at least.  Carrying in Illinois has never been an option until lately, and I don't think they honor out of state permits anyways.  I will have a folding knife on me, but I have never considered that as carrying.

    IllinoisThere’s a story about a turtle and a scorpion. Scorpion is stranded on a river bank. Turtle sees this and asks Scorpion to get on his back and he’ll take him across the river. Scorpion gets on Turtle’s back and they go into the river. When they’re about halfway across, Scorpion stings Turtle. As Turtle is sinking, knowing they’re both going to die, he asks Scorpion "Why did you sting me, we’re both going to die?" and Scorpion says "It’s not my fault; it’s what I am."

    We don't have many Christmas traditions in my family, but we do try to keep a couple things consistent. Normally we go visit family that lives within 2 hours or so on either Christmas Eve or Christmas weekend depending on how it falls in the week. We used to all get together for a big family lunch/dinner on Christmas day. Once I had kids, we started trying to stay home on Christmas day, so our kids can play, and we can spend the day together instead of spending it driving a 4 hour round trip. Both my wife's and my parents are fairly close, so we sometimes eat supper at one of their houses or have them come over to ours. One thing we try to keep consistent is to go drive around to look at Christmas lights on Christmas Eve night. We also open one present each Christmas Eve night that someone chooses for us. As far as carrying goes, if I'm at home, I won't be carrying but have easy access to a pistol if needed. If I go out anywhere, I'll be carrying my Springfield XDS 9 with 4" barrel in a Remora holster with one spare 8 round magazine. I really need to get an actual REAL holster after Christmas.

    My family is not big on traditions, but there are a few 'habits' that we do over and over.  Maybe some count as traditions.  The difference is, a 'tradition' occurs when something is done over and over for no reason other than 'we always have.'

    The Christmas tree is a tradition.  Always a real tree, and always (mostly) covered with cheap, handmade ornaments made by the offspring when we were young.  I hate them.  Christmas Eve church service is another tradition.  My family are regular churchgoers, but the CE service itself is done simply because it's 'the thing to do,' and I find it illogical. 

    On Christmas morning my father always plays classical music, with Handel's Messiah being a regular selection.  The whole day is free of work, which if you know him, happens about three times a year.

    This year my sister's two little boys are old enough for... Pop guns!  They are fun to spoil/corrupt and teach bad habits.

    Every year I buy one 'big ticket' item for one person, and the rest of them get smaller items.  The lucky person varies from year to year.

    This year I will be carrying an East German Makarov.  Just picked it up yesterday, so no, I haven't tested it yet. :hide  It's a Mak, so I'm not worried.  But yes, I am actually carrying again.  It really does appeal to me, though all of the controls are different from what I am used to.

    Our kids are grown and spread out all over the country, so we'll be alone without kids this year.  Which is okay.  As a family we never had a lot of traditions, since the kids' holidays were always split between us and their father's house (I got an instant family when I got married).  When I was a kid though, we always went to my dad's parents' house for Christmas Eve.  After my mom died and my dad remarried, we still went to the grandparents' house, but it was a shorter visit, as we then went to my stepmother's parents house twenty minutes away.  Then, Christmas morning was always at home.  My dad only had one older brother, and my only cousin on that side was eight years older than me, so we were the only young kids in the family.  Aunts and uncles and grandparents we had just seen the night before would often come over to see the immediate family gifted loot and share food.

    Since we aren't going anywhere, at most I'll just have the LCR in my pocket.

    Hey guys better late than never;) But with the holidays and I swear kids and getting sick;) We've been pretty much sick or the kids have been sick since the 19th of December;)

    None the less we're on the mend, and thankfully most of the near family have already gotten it and got over it so likely we're done with that for a while;)

    On the contest I did the drawing and this months winner is Raptor;) So shoot me a note when you order and I'll take care of the discount for ya!

    Sweet! Thank you so much! It'll probably be a little while before I order.  I already know what I'm going to order, I just need to make sure I can swing it $$$-wise first.

    Yay for Raptor!  Now you have an excuse to buy a new gun to get a holster for. ;)

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    lol, I wish. Much as I'd love one of the new S&W Combat Magnums (or two: one in each barrel length), a new boomstick just isn't in the cards right now.

    Fortunately, my CZ-75b has been screaming for some quality leather to ride around in. I'm thinking an Overland OWB in Walnut with a matching mag pouch would fit the bill quite nicely.

    I think the addition of the matching mag pouch takes the cake. You'll be well defended in style, my friend  :cool.

    I never said you had the budget to buy one, I said that you had an excuse. ;)

    I didn't know the CZ was still without a rig.  That works out conveniently.

    I do have a Blade-Tech Nano IWB for the CZ, but I really don't care for it. The body shield/sweat guard/whatever it's called digs into my side and is extremely uncomfortable. And I don't have any mag pouches for the CZ at all.

    Hope mine arrives tomorrow.  Got the shipping notice  a couple days ago.  It will be nice to finally have a good holster instead of the cheap one I have been using.
