    LOL

    Yeah, maybe I should start a business. I could have a sweat shop, and pay asians 20 cents an hour to make these things.

    Seriously, I could get her to make one, if you really want it.

    Sounds good to me.... but just because it's yarn, doesn't mean it has to be all pink and purple and yellow etc... right? Could I get an ACU digital yarn-stitched camo pattern? (Tan, light green and a bit darker green is all.)

    I'll get the dimensions to you in a PM!!

    She actually does have some 'camo' color yarn. I was thinking either that, or straight black.

    It might work for small pistols that don't have sights, and it could always be pre-shrunk. Maybe not an everyday use item, but definitely interesting. Maybe just call it a "gun sock", an accessory that people can put their firearms in when not in use. Rather than just leaving your gun on a shelf in a safe, put it in a gun sock! Not functional, but cool.

    People would probably buy them either way.

    Here's another possibility though...a knitted yarn or wool thing, that is fitted around a leather or kydex shell on the inside. That would add up to a practical holster, with a knitted design on the outside. Women would love it, and as you've seen, lots of men would as well.

    It would also be softer and more comfortable than just bare leather or plastic, with the added benefit of being warmer in cold climates. Plus it has a nice "homely" look that many people will find appealing. I'm telling you, if you can successfully manufacture a finished product like that with knitted camo, woodland and some niche designs and give a few away, you'll very quickly have an unbelievably long waiting list. People will see other people's and instantly want one.

    see, Cooter? Slumping economy and tons of folks out of work, and you just stumbled into a diamond mine!

    Dang - that just gave me a great (and simple) idea too! One of my favorite EDC rigs is an OWB pancake holster that sometimes leaves the muzzle of my Sig protruding from below my shirt if it's not quite long enough, or if I move just right.

    If I took an old Leatherman black nylon holster from a tool I no longer have - broken or lost years ago - and adhered the leatherman holster to the bottom/muzzle end of my pancake holster, people would just see the common-everyday leatherman holster - nametag and all.... very interesting and very easy. Hmmmm.

    I still want the knitted yarn sock thingy though... for an equally cool but very different application.

    My bad. A thousand pardons and all that.... or as BHO likes to say... "yes we can."
