    If anything it looks like the collection has grown since then.

    As for dealing with your addiction, are you familiar with this old joke:

    What's the difference between an alcoholic and a drunk? Drunks don't have to go to those damn meetings!

    It doesn't do any good to admit you have a problem if you're not going to do anything about it, and I get the feeling you're not ready to go cold turkey just yet pal!

    Keep up the good work!

    Yep, you remembered my holster trees from last year. At the time I had 2 trees and 2 full drawers. I WAS CONVINCED, that that was the end of my search. Man, I was wrong! I just could not stop. Since then, I've added roughly 50 more holsters!

    So is my search for BEST OF THE BEST over?. Probably not, and here's why. I finally realize, my true goal was NOT finding the BOB- BEST OF BEST (my new acronym), but just a way to add to my collection. Yep, just like any collection ex. stamps, coins etc., it just keeps growing.

    At the same time, there's no harm on researhing the BOB, to help others save time and money.

    If you were to list them out, you could probably recoup some of your money from other members here who want holsters.

    Y'know...to get money for more holsters...

    If you're married, you must have a very understanding wife. My wife hates my small box of holsters.


    It is a BEAUTIFUL THING!

    Yes, I'm blessed with a very understanding wife. But then our new born twins (11/20/2007) is probably keeping her too busy. I'm sure someday soon, reality will hit (my wife) and then you'll probably witness the biggest CUSTOM HOLSTER SALE of all time (from private owner).

    Inventory list? Great idea. But my current goal is to come up with my pick of the BEST of the BEST list instead (still researching).

    They pay shipping with and give you a refundable return deposit pluse say $5.00 bucks profit. You would make at least enough to fund your addiction.


    That's actually a GREAT IDEA. But then, it will require a lot of my time and will most likely take the "FUN" out of my hobby of collecting holsters.

    Regardless, I may still keep that in mind

    I appreciate the idea, Thanks!

    Not even my FFL dealer has that many holsters!

    Are these all for different guns?
    USMC rule # 23 of gunfighting: Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

    I am the God fearing, gun toting, flag waving conservative you were warned about!

    Obviously my holsters are for the guns I own. Unfortunatly I don't own a Glock 23. The G23/19 are considered one of the best CCW, so I may add that as my CCW! But then again, it will only increase my holster collection

    By the way, that's a pretty nice door hanger full of goodies too. What a collection!

    Glad you mentioned the door hanger thing. Currently, they are my favorite holsters. Every morning, I stand in front of it while deciding what to wear. You know, like women's shoes.

    Ahhhh, the famous HKP7. That would probably be my "NEXT GUN", which also means my collection will increase to 270+.

    Since you mentioned this, I currently have 15 pistols for my 250+ holsters. You see where the problem is?

    Ok now finally this info may quite well be my first step to recovery!


    I NEVER before took the time to do the math. 200 x 50 = 10,000


    Ok, I change my mind, I will probably never do the math ever again.
