A Very Special Holster

Yeah, it’s cool.  It’s all leather.  It’s digicam. These pictures have not been edited.  Not even cropped.

How’d he do that?  Nope, I’m not telling.  It’s a special magical proprietary process exclusive to TheHolsterSite.com. Got an image you’ve always wanted on a holster? Talk to Michael.

All that is freaking cool, but it’s not the coolest thing about this holster.

Not in the least.  The coolest thing about this holster is that it will soon be on the hip of a soldier in Afghanistan.  And we don’t even know which one.  All because Michael got an email that said this.

I am the platoon sergeant for a small detachment stationed at a small FOB in Afghanistan. My unit is hosting a super bowl party for ourselves and the US CAV units that we support here in Afghanistan.  Also invited are all DOD contractors and DA civilians. We will be sending an invitation to all of the coalition units that are represented here. Currently there are 14 other countries that are represented.

Our intention is to have a football pool for the game. No fee will be required from those who participate as gambling in not permitted and there will be officer along with lower enlisted present. We would like to give out 20 prizes, during commercials (as we cannot view the super bowl commercials on AFN), 1 at the end of each quarter and 2 during half time. No one will be permitted to win more than 1 prize as to ensure that at least 20 people receive a prize.  My command and I that are hosting will be exempt from receiving a prize to ensure the appearance of propriety.

We are seeking donations as our FOB has only a small PX with the bare necessities. We estimate that at least 250 people will be in attendance due to the weather. Our hanger has the best heating system; we also have a projector that we brought with us that will allow us to project the game onto a 12×30 white conex that is inside.

Any help in this event will be greatly appreciated.

And since Michael is really not kidding when he tells you he supports our troops, he answered.

 Dear Sir,

Sounds like a worthy cause.  How would a promotional, custom, hand-made leather holster to fit a Beretta M9 as a prize giveaway sound? Please let me know.  Thank you!

  1. Very nice of him. Hoping my lime green one turns out as nice. Yes I know I’m strange but I think it will go well with the wife’s pink glitter one.

  2. Sweet he said he was almost done with it. Can’t wait to see the pics. Hoping she loves it then I can try for a purple or something close for a iwb holster for her for Christmas. The more I think about the lime green one the more I want it. Think I might have to send him another money order in the next week or 2 so he can get started on it.
