    Thanks! I sure can, and I'm planning on getting some with my next big materials order. I haven't made a tuckable yet, but I have one in the works I read a lot of forum threads about people looking for holsters for my guns. Hopefully they'll still be looking when I get these one out in the market

    I think most holster manufacturers but solid plastic pistol replicas from the gun manufacturers. i dunno about cost, couldnt be much, but it would be a way to expand your lineup to some main stream pistols like Glocks, increasing your market...

    The blue gun replicas that are similar enough to the guns to make good holsters run about $50-$75. Eventually it will be a great idea, but at the moment I'm going to have to stick to what I've got.

    HAHA! That would definitely be awesome...but a ways off

    Actually, I sold my first holster on Ebay 2 weeks ago. The guy emailed me over the weekend and asked if I could make him another one for his Glock 26 since he likes it so much!! That means that I'll have to get a Glock blue gun... but we've already discussed that that's a good idea.

    Sounds like a good idea to me, too. I think you really may be on to something here!

    Who says that I have to hit the big time before your orders go to the top of the list?
