Now See Here, You Damned Yanks...

 


I want this to stop immediately. 


Good lord. I am so sick of these bloody plastic holsters. Not even a Glock deserves that. And - push daggers? Seriously? What are you guys? Americans? Or friggin pakies? And hell’s bells. Hanging guns in your women?!?! Maybe you gents need a reminder of what they can do with rolling pins... or fry pans! 



If you going to carry... do it like the 
good guys.

    1. Hmmmmmm....

      Kydex yoga pants for the real fatties? What's the burst pressure rating on Kydex Pete...?

  2. Fact....
    Kydex damages the finish/coating of your roscoe much less than leather. You could look it up.
    On the other hand, if you just sit around lookin at it rather than actually using it or trainig with it, it doesn't really matter does it?

    1. The difference between Kydex and leather holsters is the same as the one between a joint and a fine cigar. Some things are just worth doing right... :)

      Thanks for dropping in Jim...

  3. Armed women? We were armed before the Revolutionary War. There are some interesting tales about several greats grannies in my ancestry on both sides. Oh, and, don't give my maternal grandmother a rock. She had a hell of an arm by all accounts.

    Not sure what she needs the pig sticker for, since she has a boom-stick. But, what the hey, whatever you need for the photo shot.

  4. I didn't notice the holster or knife.
    Just saying.

  5. Our women are 100x more manly than your men. That's what being Canadian gets you. ;P

  6. A plastic holster for a plastic weapon seems right.

    The jarhead medallion holster doesn't look like it has ever been threaded onto a gunbelt, and a real purist would be moaning about the heresy of a stainless steel 1911.

  7. The one big problem with kydex, is that it works. Been using it for 15+ years. I used to hang out with high speed low drag types in So. Cal. back in the day, they paid out of pocket to get the best, when uncle sam delivered inferior gear. As for leather, cigars and joints, they all have their place. Choice is the best kind of diversity. I'm a mentally retarded boomer, you can trust me on this.

    1. Well that is the way of it though, isn't it Mike? If I was going to get into the brown stuff with hostile combatants and shoot for my life, I would do it in cordura, kydex and polymer too. In situations like that your gun is just a tool, nothing more and nothing less. You use it to do the job and hope it works. If it doesn't, it's beyond mattering anyways.

      I am one of those guys that considers his tools and guns as an extension of himself. I buy the best I can afford and I take care of them and take pride in them. That pride will manifest itself differently in all of us I suppose. My 1911 is a stainless steel Springer Trophy Match pistol that fits my hand like finely tailored gloves and shoots well enough to be a competitor... and probably isn't what you would want to take into a dog fight. My primary weapon is the fat between my ears - if I get into a fight it will almost certainly be my own fault because I should be avoiding violent, stupid people. For them, the Trophy Match should work just fine. Who knows, Darwin and Murphy may choose to correct me on that.

    2. A little confession... my 1951 Argentine Sistema 45 is the best 1911 I've run across. I like it a lot better than the early 2nd gen. G19 I carry. 1911 rides in leather, it's just proper.
