    And needed a quick Christmas gift. Probably did not realize how much lead time there was from the "factory".

    The winning bidding has ZERO feedback. Based on my experiences on ebay there is a good chance the seller will never be paid.

    Well...the seller can always offer it to the next highest bidder and that buyer was a 95 and his high bid amount was $275.00 so no great monetary loss for the seller if the "0" does not pay. Just FYI. I checked the bid history.

    I actually bid on that, and quit way in the early going. There's some sort of hysteria going on with this model holster.

    I wonder how many people ordering top-tier holsters direct don't even plan on using the holster, but instead are planning to resell at uber-gouged prices.

    That just blows my mind..

    Kind of reminds me of when I bought my Seecamp 15 or so years ago. The choice was you paid $275 and waited till Larry got around to filling your order, or you went to Shotgun News and paid $750 to get one right now.

    I recall Larry being pretty amazed about that too.

    Price gouging sucks but it's basic supply vs demand and the demand right now far outweighs the supply. These days you can find NIB 32acp Seecamps all over the place but it's still the same game with the 380 Seecamps fetching close to $1k.

    Tony can you hire more help for production? I guess it is a balancing act and if you were able to crank out more leather, demand may fall. Hmm I would be happy to open up an east coast Milt Sparks!

    It doesn't suprise me that a Milt Sparks' Holster went for that on "FleaBay".

    Nothing against Tony and the guys at Milt Sparks, but some people are too dumb to be allowed to procreate. I'll save my money and wait a little bit, I don't mind that. "A fool and his money are soon parted."

    It seems like there are a lot of fools out there.

    I agree. 23 weeks is NOT that long. I've waited for one before, and I'm in the process again. The VMII is worth the wait!

    Wont it be $181? Thats all the next highest bidder needed to beat the bid below him.
