    Here's The Covert/T Prototype-B.

    I don't anticipate any further [major] design changes. I'm still considering a few cosmetic changes involving the cover for the weapon retainer. I like the way the rubber muzzle rest turned out. It'll be a standard feature, for sure.

    Next project will be to build a platform forming jig to bend all the angles perfect.

    For now it's time to put Prototype-B to the test. ..

    Just need some black heat shrink to complete the tacticool look!

    Hollowpoints might expand, but bullets won't shrink.

    I agree. Thats one of the cosmetic changes I'm going to implement.

    The upper portion of the retainer will be covered in a thin Red sleeve and the rest of it's body will covered in a Black sleeve. The Red tip will make it easier to locate the retainer for re-holstering.

    Looks like a good idea. How do you do a one hand reholster with it though? Does the wire hold the pants out enough for you to holster?

    But wait there's more!!! If you call in the next 5 minutes we will include a 2nd Hanger Holster for just the cost of shipping and handling.

    No kidding I think it has some merit with a bit of tweaking.

    With practice, I'm sure one handed re-holstering could eventually be obtained. Initially, the Covert/T would require two handed holstering as well as Retainer identification for guided insertion.

    Mr. los, I think you are on to something here but I'm just not sure it falls under the umbrella of sanity (could be genius?)

    You are having fun. We are having fun.

    Carry on!

    LOL.

    Thanks, Doghandler.

    Not sure my neuropsychologist would agree with your analogy, but it makes me feel good and that's all that matters..!!

    Let's keep the Funess going...

    Sounds good, Revo.

    Heck, I need them just to re-hang the piles of clothes I've got in every room..

    Looks like I'm going to have to purchase wire by the roll. I'm looking into the possibility of making the Covert/T out of 10 or 12gauge Stainless Steel wire, if it can be formed like galvanized wire. Cost will be a deciding factor, as well.

    Just give the word, and I'll have them headed your way.

    I was going to suggest SS wire for the "hi-tech" version ;^) You can get some in varying thickness at a welding supply shop. It even comes in different grades. It is used as filler rod when TIG welding.

    Thanks, PA

    I've located a metals company that sells solid stainless steel rods. They offer them in many grades and lengths. I have a lot of homework to do.

    FYI, I carried my BU45 in the Covert/T [prototype-B] all day yesterday and it worked like a champ. Non-Issue day. Carry Mode: AIWB, Strong Side.
