    Talking I'm sure glad I let my wife talk me into the flea market today...

    As I was strolling through the isles what to my wandering eye did appear, but a like new Milt Sparks Summer Special that was just made for my Bursa Thunder .380… for the asking price of just five bucks! The only thing I have found wrong with it is a small brown stain on the leather down near the bottom where it is concealed anyway. Being rich in possessions but long on expenses (in other words in debt and on a strict budget ) this savings was much appreciated!

    Great find. A Sparks holster for less than the shipping cost.
    That sure was a good deal!

    Welcome to the forum. And I bet you'll be a little easier to talk into checking for fleas from now on.
