I posted a few more holsters and I thought it would be interesting to get some feedback from everyone. The #2 and #5 are new. I think I'll do this for new holsters in the future. I'm not sure what will happen, but it could be interesting. Our web sites are: http://www.fist-inc.com or
http://www.fistholsters.com .

Thanks, Jim Murnak

hey, haven't I seen this post somewhere before??

Some overzealous housecleaning resulted in Jim's earlier post being locked and deleted. glad to see that he came back.

I have checked out Jim's sight and it is first rate, great pictures, very professional.

Personally, I just ordered a #10......

Jim-
Thanks for the perserverance in reposting.

While I'm no fan of multi-mounted holsters, the design for your #2 is interesting. Without a doubt, the workmanship appears well worth the price.

The #5 *really* caught my eye. I think you're onto something with the forward break which allows for more vertical carry in cross-draw position.

Only one suggestion. With the growing popularity of the Wilderness Survival belts, you might consider a 1 3/4" belt option.

OK ROB:
CITE = to mention or quote
SIGHT = having to do with vision
SITE = location

Jim V, I'm afraid that if you run a search on my posts over the last 6 months you would be able to write a book citing the sites where I have misused or not used "Sight."

As in:

"Ground off your Sites and learn to point shoot!"
or, as above:
"I have finally gotten around to updating my sight!"

Rob, If:
Tom just met Joy, would that be love at first sight?
Joy just read Tom's poem, would that be love at first cite?
Tom and joy went to for a drive and pulled into a secluded spot, would that be love at first site?

Just so we don't slight our cites, sites, sights.

Mr. Murnak; Given the popularity of the nylon "instructor" belts from The Wilderness and others, it would be helpful if you offered 1.75" belt slots on your holsters. I've seen your ad in which you note that, with all the gun and color combinations, you offer an astronomical number of SKU's and offering 1.75" slots would add to this...but I think you would pick up some sales by so doing.

Also, your designs show alot of creativity. An area which could benefit from some creative thinking is the whole area of concealment speedloader pouches. There just isn't much out there.

I saw a speedloader pouch that attached to a walker at SHOT Show... it even had the AARP logo on it.


(just kidding....)

To those of you that are looking for concealment holsters for your Ladies, Jim is working on a prototype now. My wife is one of the testers. We got the first one and it needs a little tweaking to be just right. I think Jim is dedicated to making a good COMFORTABLE Ladies holster. Stay tuned for more details when she gets the next prototype. BillOH

There have been a few posts mentioning 1 3/4" belt slots on the Fist holsters. Actually we do make that size belt slot. We usually have a nominal charge because we usually have to alter the patterns. We tend to try to do anything we can to make it possible for the customer to get what he wants. Thanks.
