I am a finalist!

I managed get my photo selected as one of the top 10 finalist in a photo contest put on by Four Guys Guns and Savoy Leather.

The guys at Four Guys Guns ran across Savoy Leather's work and just fell in love! They make some REALLY nice custom leather holsters with some of them selling for $160!!
To help promote the brand they held a photo contest where the entries displayed the handgun they would wrap in the custom holster if they should win.
Well I set up this picture of my M&P9c and sent it in!

I just found out this morning that mine was selected as one of the top 10 finalist!
Now that picture with the most votes wins the custom holster!
I need all the help I can get as there are some great photos in the group!
But I figured my best chance at winning this was to get the support from The Firing Line!
So if you have a second please stop by and vote "thumbs up" on my picture please!
Here is a link!
Four Guys Guns holster contest

Thanks for any and all help!
God bless and have a great day!

Yeah guys! This couldn't have started off worse!
I got a couple of messages saying the link wasn't working and I went to the sight and got this message;

"Due to unforeseen issues we are re-launching the Savoy Leather Holster Giveaway.

Voting will begin on Wednesday June 26th at 12:00pm EST and the voting period will run until Wednesday July 3rd 12:00pm EST

The Top 10 Album will be removed and reset at the start date of the contest to ensure all "Likes" are starting at 0
"

So, I finally get you guys rolling and they shut it down!!
I am sorry about that and if you guys will allow it I will post a new link tomorrow!
Thanks for trying guys!

Ok guys!
The contest is back on!
Something went haywire and everything got shut down. All votes were erased and everyone starts at ZERO!
This time it is the photo with the most likes that wins so it is a facebook contest now! There are some great photos so I need all the help I can get!
I understand some may not be able to help.
But if you can, here is a link to the FourGuysGuns facebook page and my picture!
When it pulls up all you have to do is click like!

Savoy Leather top 10 finalist

That is all you have to do!
Thanks so much for the support and any votes!

Thanks njmedic1485! I appreciate the help and the complement.
With all of the help I have eased in to first place. But I know the others are not just going to give up so I still need all the help I can get!

I want to thank each of you who took the time to vote!
As cliche as it is, I could not have got this far without you!


Thanks again!

** Update **

Hey everybody check this out.
Y'all remember me begging for votes on my photo in this contest for the free custom holster. Well with everybody's help, including all of the folks over at Girls of Fire facebook page, I gave it a great run but the competition was better!
However, the people at Estes Leather Works got involved through the Girls of Fire facebook page. They liked the photo and thought it deserved a holster any way.
So after a few emails to work out the details I received this work of art!



It is the Estes Leather Snap Cake holster. It is similar to a pancake holster but with the snaps it is possible to remove the holster if it is necessary to disarm with out removing your belt.
The quality and craftsmanship are quite extraordinary! They make some great looking holsters!!
But I think what I like the best about it is it is made right here in TEXAS!
They are also working on a new IWB for a bit more deep concealment!
I am sure they will be top of the line as well!

I am blown away by the generosity of Estes Leather.
Even though I came in second, they made me a winner anyway!

I could not recomend them enough!
Good folks and great products!

Thanks for the support guys!
