Primer has a point.

You guys are reading my mind (kind of a short story, but still). There are definitely going to be more popular carry models out there. And a top 10 list so to speak would be a good way to start. However, I don't want anyone to think this is limited in any way to the popular stuff. Nor just IWB concealed rigs. I'll make a setup for just about anything out there, if they want to carry it! I can do pocket holsters, OWB, cowboy rig, whatever. If I've never done it before its just that much cooler to work out the personal details and preferences and design from scratch with my own flair thrown in.

That being said; here are 5 that I'm sure could too the list:

*1911 with rail
*S&W M&P 45
*Berreta P92
*S&W Shield 9mm or 40
*Ruger LC9

This is why I'm not an accountant.

What about the airsoft guns as an option?

I think you have a good point. My only thought though is some may want to order now, some in a month, others maybe even later. Unless I get 10 guys committed at the same time, I'll be ordering one mold at a time too. If somehow we got a group order together it would save a little on shipping.

I'd be in for a Vaquero Cowboy rig, cross draw and a right side rig for my 1858 Remington. I know JonM just picked up two Vaqueros that are the same size as mine, maybe he would be interested as well.

Pretty much.

Primer is on, but with one flaw. We've seldom managed to organize anything on here with a large group without somebody getting burned somewhere.

We did a giant Bushcraft thing with personalized forum knives. Dillinger fronted the cost of the knives, then the guy who was supposed to instruct us bailed. I think he wound up stuck with something like 15 knives.

I'm willing to front the "Smurf Gun" (lol), pay the $30, and get a custom masterpiece. The smurf gun adds to Longballer's library of molds. Even if it's an oddball gun, if he has longevity, SOMEBODY down the road is gonna want the same thing, and then the profit factor kicks in.

I'm sure he's initially gonna take a beating, bartering his work for molds, but when he expands beyond the forum, he makes the money back bigtime, and has materials on site to turn a profit.

That is DEFINITELY an option! Totally forgot about that, but my first 1911 mold was a $10 airsoft. They don't last as long, but are usually just as good for detail, and cheap enough to replace down the road. I just don't know how many airsoft models are out there for the guns people would actually carry in the real world. Might have to have a different deal for an airsoft type mold. Don't think I could do the same $30, but lets say ... $50. Makes up for the less expensive mold in case it needs replacing sooner rather than later.
