Re: Collection or House

Don't worry, I got it... We had a similar issue with my wife, in which she wanted to live close to the warm sea, and I wanted to keep my guns; the issue was that property in Florida was too expensive for us, California is more expensive and would mean no guns, and we finally settled for a compromise...

Re: OLD, TIRED, POLISH MILITARY HOLSTER????

I've worn the original holster with the gun in it quite often as well, be it in the woods on my land or for historical shows, or even sometimes in winter, under my coat. Regarding the left hand custom, I've had a TT-33 holster done like that when I was visiting family in Russia, I gave it to a profe...
