And there are a few of us working behind the scenes on some stuff to help that happen.

Now get back to work on my holster Dave!!!
I believe I joined either during, or after the great split, so I didn't get to see the old forum. This forum has always been great to me though, and in the last few months, it has become greater. Old members that made this forum great back in the day are beginning to come back, and I hope they continue too.

Well, that's such a varied amount depending on the style, its hard to say. If it is my standard Wingman IWB, I would say about 3, if I put all the steps back to back. But that NEVER happens. Cutting, shaping, gluing, sewing, wetting, molding, detailing, edging, sealing, and sometimes dyeing as well. If I break it down to an hourly wage ... I may be a little over minimum wage after expenses. Thank goodness I LOVE doing it!!

i am so glad that everyone is trying to help Dave out with his holsters. i would like to see him become a profitable success at this venture. Dave is a nice person who IMO deserves to be a success at this and so far he is, judging by the quality of his work.

Dave, i wish you the greatest of luck and good wishes and hope i can be of help to you in the future.

TWMIM, you are a very generous person and someone who has some of the most epic of brainstorms! you truly live up to your namesake, The Most Interesting Man! **huge amount of respect**

and to all you members who have bought Dave's holster's, thank you for helping him get started and enjoy them!

You are too kind.

Gentlemen, remember, if you bought one, do a thread, I'd like to see more of these masterpieces.

You bet I will be doing a thread when I get mine. It's going to be awhile though and I am in no hurry for it.

And to think we only let him post half of the stuff he comes up with for fear of the shear vacuum effect it would have on people leaving other forums to join up.

I'll definitely be doing one for mine. Unfortunately, I won't have the gun for it yet (I'll be getting it not long after I get the holster). I may be able to borrow one to show it off with.

Mine is being created right now, and while the pistol I have in mind for it will not be here for quite some time (Nighthawk Backlog - *shaking fist*) I do have a substitute for the reveal.

And. it. will. be. AWESOME!
