Funeral for 13,000
September 19, 2015
This Past Weekend in Andersonville, GA at Camp Sumter marked the Sesquicentennial Anniversary of the close of the American Civil War And the closing of Camp Sumter, GA Where so many honorable Americans died.
The Services held there were not only for the Americans that died in her Camp, but for all Americans held captive in American History.
I missed out on the festivities, but made my way there before the weekends close to pay my respects and take a few photos.
I truly enjoy doing custom pieces.
A gent contacted me about this MOLLE ‘War-Belt’ he had, that was a two row. I figured no issues for a two row because all my MOLLE attachments actually are made for two row.
Turns out his two row were woven right on top of one another versus giving equal spacing between the rows. He ended up sending me the belt so I could make a special attachment piece for his belt and we could then attach his New Holster to it.
I think it turned out quite nice.
The surprise for me was the belt itself. I liked the belt, wife liked the belt.
Nice, clean, slim/trim, sturdy with beautiful clasping hardware.
Damn nice belt. And damn nice holster on it now too 🙂
Thank you Alex!
Though I’m not wearing black. I am back.
Summertime is a busy time for lots of us and lots of good reasons.
My reason for being so busy has been trying to get this Holster Shop up and working while fulfilling my orders without messing anything up.
Everybody knows I’m pretty much a one man show, and it shows when I have so much to do. There are only so many hours that I can stay engaged in one day. Something has to take a hit. For me it was social media.
But now I’m back. In a new space. In my first climate controlled work-space.
Of course I have lots more to do, mostly small-er details and so forth. However the main course is finished and now I can make holsters in my new shop.
Nice to escape the Georgia heat. Making holsters in the heat was a warm experience.
All that said, I’m back!
It’s taken me some time to get around to a new idea I had.
I’d been pondering these types of graphics to be placed on my Kydex Holsters for some time.
Finally found the time and the place to get these done.
It’s taken awhile for me to get around to creating these new Product Videos. Production-wise, their average to good. My big pet peeve is length. I hate checking out a product or info video and having to wait & wade through minutes upon minutes of umms, ahhs, and all that kinda stuff. And of course, entirely tooooo long of video time instead of getting right to the point and moving on. I allowed myself some leeway here this time simply because I was too lazy to write five scripts. So yeah, these are off the cuff.
Longest in this series is 2:25 for the Double Universal Mag Pouch. longer than I wanted. . .but necessary too.
My thoughts? Unless you’re an entertainer or celebrity there is exactly ZERO reasons to drone on; as Al Pacino in HEAT says, “Don’t waste My “MF” time!”
GA weather is hot. I can attest to that, and each year it feels like I have to work at acclimatizing to it. I only mention it because working on this new Holster Making Space is damn hot work.
Enough whining though. I am stoked about the new space. I’ve been dancing in a space so small, it’s hard to describe other than outright. 49. Forty-Nine. I’ve been working in a space of 49 Sq. ft. Thats f-ing tiny. 7 x 7 ft. of floor space. The new space will be bigger, about 340Sf. So that will be a huge help for the organization of things. And admittedly, it’ll be nice to finally get into a climate controlled space.

Sitting here today getting ready to go make a holster for my latest Prize Winner from our Monthly Facebook Gear Giveaway. Everyone who has participated and even some who haven’t seem to think that naming the prize you’ll receive is a great idea. I do to. It was after all my idea 🙂
I’ve asked for suggestions. And I’ll continue to ask. I just want to do a contest or giveaway in reality that makes sense or is at least a little fun.
Those long slots that are seen are the adjustment built into the holster to allow 3 inches of drop down in-to and out-of the pocket.
This Customers request was simple, yet different. He has a Kimber CDP II AND they do not make a holster mold for this gun. He wanted an IWB holster, which means it needed to fit the gun; No hanging out, no short sheeting. Fit.
These are his actual photos. He did a lot of good work to get this. These shots and our communication allowed me to create a gun-mold out of a standard 1911 that replicated his Kimber.
His story doesn’t end there. He also wanted his IWB to resemble the one depicted above. Which meant I needed to do a cut-down version of my IWB offering. His review can be found here.
Customers finished product. He’s happy. I’m happy.
