Built out a rig today or finished rather a rig today that is a gift to a customer's son. She asked if I could put his initials on the rear, sure I can now;)

So it's classic gunleather so I made it simple and on the rear as requested.

Close up for engraving:

I very much like being able to do things like this and the consistency is so much better than stamping letters etc. Not to mention I'm not restricted to a particular font etc, I can put anything on there. So this was a cool though simple project that I enjoyed not really because of the engraving that was pretty easy, but the fact that this customer is giving this to her son and it's a big of an heirloom. I dig that, she's doing things right by my account;)

    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.

    That one has been on the unofficial order list for a while now;) I think I originally designed that oh probably 5 years ago now;)

    I've made allot of changes to it since then, but it's now really close to a final version so to speak. Really it could be final, just took allot of tweaking but lately I've been doing a fair amount of them;)

    So anyone wanting an overland before I add it to the site just shoot me a note since I can do them. Otherwise it will end up on the site likely pretty soon. Since I've got good images of several of them finished now;)





    There are a few more, those are actually someone here. I'm utterly terrible putting forum names with real names in most cases and I'm forgetting his forum name though likely he'll chime in and claim them:) I can go look it up but either way it's another WTA member here we all know just I'm terrible remembering what his name is on here right now;)

    That Overland set is mine and I absolutely love it. I keep meaning to do a review on it but I always get side tracked.

    It's my court set up but I've taken to wearing it a lot for my casual carry. I hate wearing my uniform to court because our policy is that I have to wear my full duty belt as well. So I normally wear a coat and tie and usually a vest. So I wanted a fancy but practical rig, and to say Luke delivered is an understatement. I almost didn't wear it till one of my Hi-Powers got back from Don Williams so the pistol would look at least half as good as the leather.
