    Some of you may have seen my poor attempt at humor in this thread:
    viewtopic.php?f=27&t=52930

    I asked Mr. Zookeeper to make me a holster, and this is how it went.

    I have always heard about Milt Sparks holsters, and that they were the greatest thing since sliced bread, popcorn, and cold beer. Several weeks ago I got VERY lucky, and found a brand new VMII for my Glock 19. I ordered it, and wore it for a couple of weeks, off and on. It is a very nice holster, but, IMHO it is not the "greatest thing ever".

    Here is my Milt Sparks:

    About two weeks ago I was able to hold and fondle one of Zookeepers holsters that he had just finished for a fellow GCO member. I absolutely could not believe the detail and craftmanship that was built into this holster.

    So I asked him to make me one for my Glock 19. Most of his holsters are not IWB, and most have a very contrasting trim material of some sort of exotic animal.

    I wanted IWB, I wanted simple black leather, and I wanted an exotic trim, but I wanted it black also.

    We met together, I gave him my VMII to use as a guide, I picked out a very nice alligator skin for some trim, talked about how I would wear it and at what postion.

    I gave him my number, my Glock, and a good firm handshake.

    Today I got back this, and I could not be any happier in the style, fit, and finish.

    The belt loops are covered in alligator, and just about an inch of alligator shows above my belt when I am wearing it.

    It is perfection. It is comfortable. It is stylish. It is a one of a kind custom Zookeeper holster for my favorite carry gun, and it is MINE!!!!!!

    If anybody is considering a holster from Zookeeper, you better do it now, before he becomes famous, moves to Hollywood, and forgets all the little people here in Georgia!!!

    Very nice...but that is to be expected since it's a Zookeeper holster. I've got one of his holsters and am waiting for another to be delivered next week. :mrgreen:

    Jerry got to hold and fondle mine . . . Hey!, my holster, I mean! In case you missed it, here it is.

    Like Jerry's, mine is a modification of one I already have - a Del Fatti LP-HTL. I could not be happier with the fit, finish, and quality of my new ZK leather compared side-by-side with the Del Fatti.

    I have to admit, after renting a G19 at the range a month or so ago, I have been half looking to pick one up.
