So, one of my shooting buddies had a car wreck last year and exploded his femur; now he has a slick titanium femur. He complains that it keeps him from being as flexible as he once was. The last time I was over there I thought I had finally come up with a "bright side" a "saving grace" for the metallofemur, but he didn't seem interested. But seriously, if I had a metal bar for a femur, I would soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo have a holster mount attached to it. With the impending legality of permit-free open carry in MS, a femur-mounted tactical holster would be the absolute baddest holster out there. Some people...

The only problem I could see if having to keep the channel through his thigh for the mount that the holster would mount to clean and infection free, otherwise it's an interesting idea.

He survived a terrible wreck and complains about the doctors saving his leg?
Some people....

That's true my little bro got a bone infection and had to have a pickline for awhile. That tripped me out...

I was thinking of a rod that would attach to the existing titanium rod and have a female threaded attachment point level with the skin surface; screw in the holster of your choice and roll.

Dude does like to drink; i'm thinking he will wake up with a washer or something superglued to his leg when I can get his wife in on the gag.

Hell of a weekend and its not over but Id hate to be the owner of this tree truck , He forgot to let one of his main outriggers down and over it went , God only knows how much hydraulic oil was dumped on the driveway , I loaded my dingo and tapped intot he main boom , ring gear and some other hydraulics and got most everything retracted before we turned it back over .

no it was a 60ft crane or tree crane , boom , what ever you wanna call it . He picked up a tree and went to swing it not knowing he forgot to let his last outrigger down , the one on the back was down on that side but when the weight swung over it snapped it right off . It buckled the main boom , bent the main ram then the idiot torch cut the boom for some stupid reason but I guess when it buckled it was totaled , they cant have ANY weak spots . IF he has any money left after this ordeal he is going to turn it into a log truck , it will cost too much to replace the boom . He had insurance to cover damage to the house but none on the truck
I will be shocked if he does not have to replace the drive way due to the hydraulic fluid that leaked out , also his fault , his nerves were too frayed to really even be out there , when we got it upright he was rushing and hit the lever to the broken rigger and shot out a big load of oil , drive way was ok till that . The HO is out of town but told us b4 he left NOT to get any oil on the drive , LMAO it wont me .
I told the guy to wet everything down with water JIC he had a leak , oil will not stick to anything wet and makes for easy clean up .
Over all , he just should not have been there , I really feel sorry for the guy .
I had to leave in the middle of everything , if I could have stayed I could have stopped him from spewing the oil , hind sight is 20/20
