    Couldn't believe my eyes

    Ran across these images that show holsters embodying extremely poor design, and construction; and couldn't believe whose shop they'd come from:

    2013 (1).jpg2013 (2).jpg2013 (3).jpg2013 (4).jpg

    Rather than point out the flaws in these designs, and in their construction, I'll ask you to have a guess at who would've put their name on these. First correct answer gets a holster from my new design collection -- free.

    But you have to then annotate the pics with their shortcomings (I'm way ahead of you) to get your free holster

    Gonna be fun trying to draw out of a few of those. I got a laundry list of issues on those. Just don't have time to track down the who.

    They look like well made, well designed holsters from what I can see in the pictures. What exactly are you talking about?

    Fair enough.

    Compare the original:
    1988.jpg

    with the copy:
    2013 (1).jpg

    You can only win if you can (1) name that designer / maker and (2) know what's "wrong".

    It can't be Richard Nichols, he's that nice chap who's been called "a design genius" and "a master craftsman" . . ..

    Bianchi,I'm assuming you recognized your original designs have some corner cuts,My fist Bianchi holster was a 5BL IIRC for a colt python back in the late 70's
