greatfool: Cant wait for your review, been thinking about asking to see their attempt at a shobu Aug 15, 2022 0:18:42 GMT
Drunk Merchant: I would be surprised if not. The polish and balance are superb. Aug 14, 2022 4:12:28 GMT
The Levin Lance: I was impressed with mine. Aug 14, 2022 4:02:46 GMT
Drunk Merchant: Review won’t be up for a week but suffice to say I am VERY impressed with the blade quality, polish and balance. I’ve never seen a production blade of this level. Certainly not at this price. Aug 14, 2022 3:52:47 GMT
The Levin Lance: So? Aug 14, 2022 3:52:39 GMT
Drunk Merchant: Well semprini, my long awaited Zsey just dropped in here comes the moment of truth… Aug 14, 2022 3:10:52 GMT
carbon: Later y'all Aug 2, 2022 17:26:07 GMT
carbon: No problem, and good luck! Aug 2, 2022 17:24:02 GMT
nerdthenord: thanks for the info Aug 2, 2022 17:22:41 GMT
carbon: But---my advice is likely worth exactly what you paid for it. Aug 2, 2022 17:18:11 GMT
carbon: 800-919-7923 That's the number for Tucker holsters. You'll be talking with Rob Longnecker. He can probably set you up with something that works well for you. He knows his stuff. Aug 2, 2022 17:16:18 GMT
nerdthenord: LOL i already do. Too many crappy ones in different colors for airsoft Aug 2, 2022 17:14:10 GMT
carbon: If you're like the rest of us, you'll wind up with a drawer full of holsters you never use lol. Aug 2, 2022 17:12:47 GMT
nerdthenord: I was looking at a Safariland OWB holster low ride with adjustable cant. I despise thigh holsters with a passion, and don't like my holsters sitting too high either. I'm five five so fitting can be tricky. Aug 2, 2022 17:10:50 GMT
carbon: I can understand how. Aug 2, 2022 17:09:52 GMT
nerdthenord: I play airsoft when the weather permits, and enjoy shooting real guns at the range when I can. Warhammer 40k has taken the bulk of my time and money as a hobby since April 2020, though. Aug 2, 2022 17:09:03 GMT
carbon: There are several out there. I would try to recommend a few, but holsters are like sneakers, a very personal choice. Take a look at Tucker Gunleather if you have the time to wait. $$$ but great stuff. Aug 2, 2022 17:09:03 GMT
nerdthenord: I've found I really don't care for plate carriers, and prefer lightweight chest rigs. I got burnt out of medieval stuff after getting a high end custom sword. Can't easily top that. Aug 2, 2022 17:07:33 GMT
carbon: Shooting is my primary hobby. I try to make it to the range at least 2-3 of times a month, which is one of the reasons I haven't had much time or $$$ for swords lately. Aug 2, 2022 17:06:26 GMT
nerdthenord: Thanks! My kit is just about complete, just need a good quality hard shell Glock 19 holster to replace my nylon airsoft holster for real steel use. Aug 2, 2022 17:05:54 GMT
