    I'm worse than my wife is with shoes!



    We've all heard of the infamous box-o-holsters, the place where bad holsters go to die. I too have one of these boxes, but this picture is not about that box. This is the contents of the holster drawer, the place where good holsters live. All 12 of the holsters in this picture get used regularly. One of them is on me every day (you can tell which one is in use today, it has the gun in it). Some are inexpensive, others not so much. I have another one in the mail that hopefully ends up in the drawer, not the box.

    Now did this happen?
    Peace through Superior Firepower.

    I am the same way. But with a cabinet full of holsters, I know pretty much about the different types. I just got to settle down in to one and master it, so if I need to protect myself someday I can do it.

    I'm a backpack designer, so every time I get a fancy new pack, she gets a new handbag. But I never thought about her 80+ pairs of shoes as an excuse for more holsters!!

    Time to start shopping pure freakin' genius man....

    Very nice collection. I am trying to find the perfect holster and then selling the rest. The problem is that there are so many good holsters.

    It would appear we all have a leather fetish. I just sold off about 10 of my unused holsters. Of course, THAT means they have to be replaced with BETTER ones!

    I too have been biten by the gotta have holster bug.
    Get this,a while back I ordered a Bianchi LH Black Widow for my 1911.Within a day or so,I was notified that it was on backorder.This didnt suprize me,it being for a southpaw and all. So,last night,I goes to get into da sack and there under my pillow was a UPS box!The wifey had gotten home prior to me yesterday,and seeing my holster box she figured to have a little fun. She said "just how many holsters must a guy have?"-I told her I was fixin to find that very question out! Its a good thing shes a good sport-it helps she comes from a big family of outdoorsmen gun nuts.

    Your photo so inspired me I went to this forum's classified section and there was a holster listed for sale for my primary carry. Bingo.
    Have to go upstairs now and tell my wife she can get a new pair of shoes.

    Really when is it enough is enough ! Seems like everyday I see another holster or maker and I want to buy to try it. I have the drawer full, And now I need to get to the mailbox before my wife does. I wish there were holster stores where you could see and touch. (maybe there is but not neer me). Soon I'll be able to open my own Ebay store!
