What should I create...

Ok, I really don't want to guess again at what old school and stock players use so I'll ask. What, in leather, would you guys like to see? Possibilities are nearly endless, but I am curious to your ideas and such. This is not a for sales thread, so please don't ask me for pricing or anything. I'm just looking for opinions and possible prices of goods you'd like to see.

Thanks for looking and for hopefully posting an opinion.

-Butch

I've really been looking for a stock class ball gag.

You could probably sell PGP holsters faster than you can make them if you market properly.

I second the PGP vote. If you can make one in my price range, I will be all over it, like white on rice.

Also, ball tube and cartidge holders would be nifty, say, on the holster?

How about a back holster for the KP rifles ala Ash from the Evil Dead movies?

Because going out as Ash would just be TOO FREAKING COOL.

I would like to see a back holster for sheridans. Yanking a P-68 out of a back holster would just feel badass.

That's really nice. Of course, to be a Ash holster, it would have to be left handed since Ash is by default, left handed

The original Ash holster has straps that meet in the center of his chest like an X and are sewn into a big ring in the center. I'm not quite sure it's leather or not, some shots look like nylon. I'll have to re-watch the movie later lol. To make a proper Ash holster you would have to put on a hook for the pull cord of the chainsaw, naturally. Later on, in Army of Darkness he had a new holster made that's much simpler. Presumably this one is leather since he's in medieval times and he was using craftsmen who belonged to the king.

OKay, so that's what you should make, a back holster so someone can twirl their KP rifle around their thumb, jam it into the holster, and say "...groovy".

EDIT: For those of you who are just itching to see that clip, ya' gotta love You Tube;

the problem I see is that most of us are to damm cheap to appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into these items. The back holster was how much? $250. No expensive considering the time and quality of the product, but really how many are going to actually buy one. If anything I say you do custom/commision work with maybe a "catalog" of styles to choose from.

I have done a backholster, and unfortunatly lost on that one. I could make them much cheaper if I had a sewing machine but alas, I don't have the $1500 it costs to buy the Tippmann boss :'( I have actually only made one of these, as there wasn't much interest because of the cost... far too much time.


PGP holsters eh? what would be the "reasonable" price range?

Thanks everyone for their opinion, and Chefdave I'll start on your ballgag for ya shortly Joking of course...
