Alrighty some of these might be duplicates from some other threads but I wanted to update this one with some new rigs I've been building lately and haven't had time to post;)

























Take care!

    Well guys I noticed it's been quite a while since I posted up some pictures of my new work, beware this is a long one. These are mostly exotics since my standard rigs look well mostly alike. These tend to be unique mostly to each particular rig:

    You have customers from Australia?  Interesting...  So I take it that your leather holsters do not qualify for ITAR restrictions?

    Actually I don't ship outside the US this guy happened to be making a trip here, was planning on stopping by but the rest of the trip went long, so I shipped it to him before he left the country at his end point. So how he get's it into his country is up to him;) Generally what I tell guys overseas is if they have a friend or family in the states I'll ship to them and if they want to deal with the legality of sending it on that's up to them. Mostly I don't know the international laws as they may apply to holsters so I avoid the problem by not doing it;)

    That all said there are probably 20+ of my holsters that likely made it overseas since I started building them, or at least that many I know of maybe more.

    That's fantastic news (shipping out of country) and fantastic work  :thumbup2 . I wish they had concealed carry in the "more civilised" countries. Maybe im dreaming, but maybe someday we will be able to carry iron in London or Brisbane  :hmm.

    The majority of out of the country requests are from Law Enforcement in various countries and honestly most of them want me to directly ship but I'm just not comfortable with it knowing how laws are so weird around the world. Heck within the US they are weird(like the exotics going to California weird), so it's not worth the risk to me;)

    Uh huh.  The chances of you being able to carry in London are about the same as being able to fly in on a pegasus, and foxhunt from a saddled unicorn.

    On that note, the Aussie rig looks a bit like elephant.  Is it?  If so, export permitting would be interesting.

    It is elephant, but last I heard I think he's already home with it but I did build it just recently so I'm not sure. Either way it's up to him, hope he makes it in because the rig wasn't cheap;)

    Progress in the progun fight isn't the fastest, but we have had some impressive wins. It seems to me that more people have an appreciation for their rights then we might give credit for, some even in position of power with which to effect some real change. Carrying in London? Maybe not in my life time, but I may need to dog ear ideas for preferred Fox guns and unicorn saddle offerings for future reference  ;)  :P.

    I don't think we would support and try to spread this human right if we didn't think we could gain traction of influence, if we didn't think we had a real shot at winning the fight.

    No doubt it's a long row to hoe, but I don't think we should ever lose optimism in the pursuit of the right.

    That Purple rig is Teju lizard I believe the end of what I've got in that color.

    I loved the look of that model 29 holster;) Sometimes I build stuff I don't want to send out, I'd rather keep but that would mean I'd need to buy a Model 29;)

    Teju lizard, huh? Damn. I am completely smitten. You will have to tell us when you get more of that. What does the price run on it? For Texas iwb rig, seeing as those are all I use.

    Price wise I tend to run it around the same as my shark so $85 for trim, $120 for full coverage. I actually do believe I've got some other colors on hand just completely out of that color. So depending on what your looking for I might have something, or I can always see if I can get some;)

    I hadn't planned on picking up more of that color I've had it for several years since I bought a fair amount of it and it took a while to use up. But you never know;)

    And something since it's a Christmas gift I modified my existing sheath design a touch and made up something a bit more classic. Not a super Classic knife one of the new Schrades, but it's a good solid knife and since it's a gift for a 16 year old seemed like a good fit;)
