Many know that we've been dealing with many different health issues over recent months.

Things are looking up, and I want to take a moment to thank all of you for your support. Thank you for the emails and messages and the time you take to say hi and ask how everyone is doin.

To be fair to those who had orders placed, and those perspective orders I could have taken, I turned folks away, and held off any further advertising to focus on those of you I was, and continue to fill orders for.

I'm still not 100%, but I'm beginning to feel bullet proof again, and will be here to continue to harass my competitors! :) all in fun and in friendship of course!

But know that, without all of you out there, without your support and friendship, I wouldnt have made it through. There were many times i just wanted to give up, I was going out of my mind. Of all the things in my life I face, sometimes daily, I have never been afraid of anything. Not predators, not working at heights walking steel beams only several inches wide, not of nearly being crushed. But for my daughter, and later because of my health not knowing if I could take care of my family, I was afraid. I was making lists in my mind of things they had to know to do if I couldnt do it.

Fact is however, I'm industructible. Things will get back to normal, and Michelle, if you read this, I promise to learn HTML.

Thank you everyone for your patience and support. I and my family are exceedingly greatful beyond what I am able to convey here.

Brad.

Thank you all! Its good just feelin well enough to get back on here!

Jenn, thank you and no worries, she is doing very well with treatment and we are in a position where we need only only make trips for regular check ups every 6 weeks or so, and then also for tests every so often to check kidney function. In fact shes well enough, we have been doin some much needed theraputic shooting, and she even shot some video for me as I was testing some of my gun leather. The temps were only like 28 degrees, and we were out in the woods havin a good time, and then we edited the vid for youtube! Some days I'd like to give her away, shes drive me nuts...

Again, thank you!

You will find the members here are very supportive.

Once a certain member slapped me around a little bit and told me that I needed to let people know what was going on, I found that the little messages, nudges and drive by silly jokes really kept my spirits up.

It good to hear you daughter is doing better. My youngest is dying to do some shooting but our range is under 30+ inches of snow right now.

You mention letting people know what was going on. That was really difficult for me. I didnt want to, that meant facing and acknowleding what was going on, or rather the fact we didnt know... That was when I realized I was scared for her. Heck, I was just scared.

Oh, and by the way, if anyone is wonderin, thats as emotional as I'm getting!!! No exceptions!

Yeah, you guys got all the snow! It will be gone soon! :)

Could we do a group call? I tried messing with my page and can't figure it out. Which annoys me because I used to be so computer savvy. :oops:

Just got some even better news! Cardiologist says my heart is ok! So, its lookin positive for arthritis in my breast bone! I know it sounds weird, and it is... but its better than having heart problems! Its painful but I'm not dying, and its a huge burden lifted! :)

Anyway, I'll be wanting to share with you all some of the gun leather I've been workin on. Being able to get out and shoot, or even just looking forward to it, was really quite theraputic. So from this a couple things developed. New friends and relationships have been forged, and new endeavors undertaken.

Something I just realized... gun people dont care much for colors like pink and purple or even blue. I have yet to be asked to make a pink shell cuff foor an M590A1 or Remington Police Magnum.

Weird.

Not happenin Pit Bull mama. Let me put it this way; Concealed means concealed. Not "Hey check out my hot pink, really cool, OWB concealed carry holster!"

I have a really awesome honey/auburn color I made that is so so beautiful! Very natural and the feel reminds me of a baseball glove, but firmer.

Oh, and of course black is still an option!!! I may get crazy and mess with highlighting edges in some british tan to oxblood...

WolfMoon, Thanks!!!

Overlord, its loco I know... but I'm gonna wing it! For goodness sakes, if gun people have to have pink holsters, I guess I'll consider it! I'd do it for Liz! But the rest of you have to be pretty high up the food chain for pink holsters! lol!
