    Or doe. Hard to tell, from this angle. Maybe the hairs growin' up are a clue.

    As for hookin' that thing onto a thong. Yeah, well. Maybe in your house. I can see it now. Being a "quick draw McGraw" could be a definite disadvantage, with one o' those.

    All kidding aside, it's sure different. Ultra thin. Hairs hold it in place. Neoprene makes for a very positive grip on the gun, so no "wardrobe" malfunctions. I prefer a positive hook onto the belt. I wonder how it works deeply concealed, or how it avoids working its way down without a positive belt loop?

    QKShooter's right--the Neoprene's are endangered, and facing the same dire future as the Polyester's were before they disappeared.

    In spite of the obvious violations of all things Federal, I'm thinking fuzzy holsters might be the wave of the future.

    Oh my. It's just like the extinction of the Nauga in the '70s all over again.

    Will we never learn?

    As Tom Hanks once said in Big..."I don't get it."

    Maybe it's just me, but why would you hook a holster on your belt loop or turn signal? The holster material is unique, for sure...

    I cant see how that thing wont stink after a month. Can you wash it? Fabrez can only do so much. How durable is the hair, even the most durable horse hide gets wear spots after awhile. After all the fur falls off all you'll have is a Uncle Mikes holster.

    Kevin-

    That is the most incredible piece of craftsmanship I have ever seen. I especially like the Small of Back and Cross Draw - it looks like it would be very fast to draw from. What is the wait time for a holster like that? Price??? I hope its under $200 as that is my budget at this time...but maybe I could stretch it a bit. The exotic hides must be worth a fortune - would you mind disclosing your source?

    Post Nauga Hides

    You will notice that the Nauga is never seen anymore.
    They were destroyed for their vibrant skin colors.
    Sadly, the worldwide moratorium on wantonly killing them came too late.
    So many Nauga were harvested in such a short period of time that they never could recover in numbers that would recoup their existence.
    Their populations became totally decimated.
    What a horrific mass slaughter that was.
    Some members here are too young to remember the Nauga and how the Nauga hide was used everywhere - even to cover car and chair seats.
    There are still some old Nauga Hides remaining.

    Thank God the Micarta breed like rabbits so they are in no danger.
    If their gestation rate was lower they would also be gone due to the fact that so many custom knife-makers are making knives with Ivory Micarta handles.
    When are we ever going to learn that we need to respect and share this Earth and not dominate and destroy it?

    We cannot continue to kill whatever we need right up until the complete an utter destruction of an entire specie.

    I don't even want to get started on what we are doing to the Dacron & the Vel Crow.

    They have set up a website for preservation of the African Kydex. The poor animal is almost gone.

    Sorry...I'm so ashamed.

    Back to the original discussion. How do you carry that IWB? It looks like the hook and leather loop would be a little "pokey".

    Hey, back to this thing about the baby Neoprene. Can I get in trouble for eating that tasty barbecued baby Neoprene Kevin gave me? It's really pretty tasty stuff! Even better than the pit roasted manatee. You all just got to visit Kevin sometime, the food's great!

    I don't have a problem with harvesting the Neoprene's for food and gunleather. What's sad is what folks have done in the past with the Nauga and the buffalo--just going for the hides and wasting the rest. I think that's the same behavior that brought the tiny Polyester's to the brink of extinction.

    I don't know first-hand, but I hear that 12-hours in the smoker at around 225-degrees and that Neoprene just falls right off the bone.

    We really should think about some discretion here. Otherwise, we'll start seeing those PETA anti-Neoprene ads with Pamela Anderson and Bob Barker protesting and chaining themselves to trees and such. And throwing paint on unsuspecting Neoprene wearers.

    Yeah, it's a crying shame you can't get nauga fried, boiled or frittered, but baby neopreme po'boys, them's good eating. 'Dunno about shoving anything in my pants with the hair pointing up though.

    Judging by the amount of times this thread has been viewed and the lack of comments, I'd say not everybody gets it. My tongue is still in my cheek...
    If you don't dig it, that's fine. This holster might not be for everybody but it looks like just what I need. A holster for everything - the one holster that can do it all. Even though it might cost a few hundred bucks up front, it will be a savings in the long run because I won't have to buy a holster for every occasion - this one really does do it all!
