Very nice indeed!



Matt,

I am told that the cost of sharkskin has gone up significantly and that it is no longer the "entry level" exotic option that it once was.
Is that the case, and if it is what has replaced it - elephant, hippo or something else? For the most part I try to keep myself out of trouble these days and force myself to stay away from the super fancy fancy stuff, but sometimes I get a little weak.....

Thank you.

Thank you guys!!

Richard:
It sure isn't as easy to find good large shark skins as it used to be. I have been told that the Japanese have been buying up a lot of it much as the Chinese are buying large amounts of cowhide from the US. And you know what that does to prices :shock: .

Thank you for the confirmation Matt. More cowhide for me then I guess :lol:

That sure is a great looking rig though. Thanks for posting it.

All the best,
R.

Matt,

Where did you get the hardware for that rig - looks high end compared to what you normally see.

Someday I hope to be able to build a holster that is half as nice as that.

Although I tired and failed years ago to use shoulder holsters, I guess I'll never get over my fascination with them. That is the most fascinating yet!

Thanks Tim!

Thank you too Ned! SRs are pretty handy in cold country cause it's easier to grab a pistol through a partially open zipper that is it to claw a parka out of the way to access a hip holster. Other than that, I think SRs are pretty limited in their usefulness.

They may indeed have limited usefulness but Miami Vice came on a few years after I started my LEO career. I still get a warm, fuzzy when I see a nice one and that's a NICE one.
