Today I gave a man that I met for the first time, a brand new Milt Sparks Versa Max, and a brand new Glock 19, to take home with him.

I have only talked to him via PM on GPDO. I have no idea where he lives, or what he does for a living.

He seemed like a nice guy, and promised me something very nice in return in a week or two. You think I should have believed him?

He has my Glock and my holster.

Should I be worried????

I hope he keeps his word!!! :D :D :D

I will keep you informed :D

Without knowing the full circumstances of the situation, it's hard to call. All you can do is trust your gut. If your already doubting your decision, perhaps you have answered your own question. Keep us up to date and let us know how it plays out. Good luck.

He took some nasty plastic out of your life and you want something more? Man, people these days...
WOW, tough crowd.

What if all he does is brings me back some sort of leather goodie laced and trimmed with some kind of exotic animal skin???

This could turn out really bad.....

I can hardly wait :D

It sounds to me that met with the Zookeper.

We will need pics when you get your new leather.

Jerry,

All those things I told you about my wonderful new Zookeeper leather . . . I made them all up! You'll never see your Glock again!

Now knowing a little more info, I would gladly give up my weapon for a couple weeks to receive the kind of goodies headed your way. Now you just have to deal with the dreaded anticipation. When you get these goodies, remember, pics or it didn't happen. :righton:

I notice that of all the folks on this board that have showed off their zookeeper holsters, none of them have mentioned, or even hinted at the price. Is this per zookeeper's request?

I'm only curious, doesn't really matter if he's charging premium prices, his work sells itself.

No, Chuck didn't request any silence on price - I don't think he has a set price; it's pretty much based on the labor, materials, and ingenuity that go into each project.

Mine, here, was $130 for the holster and $50 for the magazine carrier. It's not inexpensive leather, but quality-for-quality it stacks up to some of the best I've had. And it's the rig I actually wear, since it was custom-built to fit my carry habits.

If the "nice guy" in question is the Zookeeper... your stuff is in good hands..

He has had my XDM, my Jericho and currently has my Sig... never fear !
and what you get back... as you have seen.. will be worth the wait
(although - never MUCH of a wait :D )

js415;

From what you have told us - I feel you should be OK.

I've been dealing with gun people, trading, selling, buying and shipping holsters and belts for many years. And many times (two belts just this week)
sending them out before payment has even been sent and (knock on wood) I have never once been duped.
I don't know what it is, but gun enthusiasts seem to be some of the most honest people going.

Just food for thought.....

I hope I'm not alone in having picked up on this after the first post, lol. js, I'm sure you'll get back something you appreciate greatly as well as your stuff! I've been very happy with mine. As for price, mine >>here<< was $100. For the money, and speed at which the holster was completed, and the quality of the workmanship--it simply can't be beat.

over the past 6 months or so i have met (many for the first time, one guy that simply found me on a google search and knew nothing about me) a lot of people in parking lots all over the metro area and drove off with some beautiful hardware, it still amazes me sometimes that folks will still have that kind of trust. i treat all of these guns better than i do my own and i treat my firearms like queens. Al is right about gun enthusiasts, they are as a group the most stand-up people out there, i have yet to meet just one that was an exception. don't worry a bit, a glock is not gonna be the one that tempts me, now if i get my hands on that hinted python :shock: :runaway:

I was just messing around about being worried, just to see if anybody would ask me if I
Was crazy giving a gun away!!

Thanks,

FWIW, Jerry, I got a kick out of it. And after looking at Bruce's photos, I'm wishing I had $$$ to send towards the zookeeper.

Zookeeper's an all-around good guy. He let me borrow his .22 pistol when I was looking for one of that kind to test out, before making a purchase decision.
I didn't give it back to him in a new holster, either!
