A little while back, I asked Zookeeper if he could re-create my favorite holster with a new twist - pull-the-dot snap belt loops instead of standard belt slots.

Here's the result of his using my Matt Del Fatti LP-HTL holster and magazine carrier as a pattern and building my new custom carry rig . . . .

Original holster and magazine carrier used for the starting point:



Del Fatti LP-HTL:



Del Fatti holster and carrier with H-K P7M8 and spare magazine



A fantastic carry combination, with only one flaw for me: I get in-and-out of my car all the time, and I wanted to be able to take the gun and mag off and put it back on without constantly re-threading everything through my belt.

Here's the solution, as implemented by Zookeeper - New holster and magazine carrier, with wrap-around loops and pull-the-dot snaps.



New holster:



New carrier:



Zookeeper holster and carrier with H-K P7M8 and spare magazine:



I wore it around all day today for the first time. Everything is solid and tight, nothing shifts, the snaps lock up tight, retention on the magazine and holster are great - critically important in an open-top holster with no strap.

This is an outstanding piece of work, especially when compared side-by-side to what I consider the Rolls-Royce of holsters - Del Fatti. I can, and will, unhesitatingly recommend Chuck's work to anyone considering a quality holster - my expectations for this project have been not only met, but far exceeded.

If you want a Zookeeper holster, I suggest you order it now . . . before he gets a two-year backlog like Del Fatti!

I need to get with Zookeper about a second holster for me. I love the one he made for my CZ.

I want to get a close fitting OWB to carry my J-Frame at about 4:00. Kinda like a detective on a '70s cop show.

I knew it!!! Looking at my first holster that came from zookeper, I was thinking "man....this looks like $300 holster." I got to see a "real" Milt Spark's Axiom recently and compare it to my Axiom-clone from zookeper. I do believe mine is better built with sweat-guard. (way I wanted it. Real Axiom holsters do not have sweat-guard) All for reasonable price with two week turn-around time.

I wore it all day yesterday at the Chastain Park Arts Festival, and I'll have it on all day today (come see us at booth #89!). Tight solid fit, comfortable, easy off-and-on for those trips to the porta-pottys at the show (don't want to accidentally drop the H-K into you-know-where . . .).

BTW, it's quite refreshing to be able to now legally carry at a venue like this - no Atlanta Park ordinance banning possession of firearms; no Public Gathering clause.
Ed/John/Kelly/Mike/Dean/James/Matt and all the other GeorgiaCarry.org visionaries - my sincere Thank You!!
