I’ve not been saying much about the Sad Puppies controversy lately, because right now it is out of my hands. Some employees of a publishing house said some pretty outlandish things, and their customers are ticked and writing lots of letters. I’m staying out of that one.
But some author friends had this made for me and sent as a gift. I’m pretty sure they don’t want to be identified. 🙂 The holster was made by Dennis Badurina of Dragon Leatherworks That is python, and it looks way cooler in person than it does in the pictures too. It is really pretty. Yes, that is a Sad Puppy with a rocket ship. This is really a pretty piece of leather.
All of my regular 1911s are ugly working guns (like the Springfield in the picture). I’m going to have to buy something pretty just to go in this. This is a barbeque gun set up. Eldest Daughter has been shooting a lot (and getting pretty darned good) and she has already tried to claim this holster for herself (“but Dad, it is pink!). This is the same daughter who has tried to claim my custom STI Tac 4.15 9mm (the Lorenzo gun) for herself. I think this is part of her plot to get her own 1911. Clever kid.
Dragon Leatherworks also did a bunch of the props for Jurassic World. http://www.wbir.com/story/news/local/2015/06/10/oak-ridge-gun-shop-crafts-props-for-jurassic-world-movie/71046122/
