Default Our own Crazyphil's "Renowned Gun Leather"

Phil sent me a copy of his extensive work " Renowned Gun Leather " as a prize for guessing a maker. To say I'm impressed is an understatement.
I have Phil's permission to include the photo of his cover below, he copywrited his work which was a smart move. The spiral bound book includes numerous color photographs and is packed with solid and useable information-topics include history, renowned makers, terminology, holster values and how to tell what a holster fits.
One of the things I enjoyed most when reading Elmer Keith's books as a youngster was how much his love of what he wrote about shined through. Phil's book shows the same enthusiasm for his subject-he knows what he's writing about and he cares about it.
I'm still working my way through it, it's 65 pages long. I don't know what his plans are for making this available, I hope he has such plans, but I'm awfully glad I have a copy. Thank you, Phil, for writing this and for letting me enjoy it.
Regards,
turnerriver

Thank you for those very kind words John. I am quite passionate about
my hobby and like to share. I'll be letting you know soon what plans I
have to market the manual.

I wish I had a copy before I filled this large box with holsters.
Then again, it will give me hands on items to inspect as I read your book!
If it comes out in print.

I've just begun my serious interest in "hand-made" holsters. So I can't think of a better place to start than with your book. I'll watch this thread for availability, and want one as well

Pretty great that Wheelgun was able to do this for you :-). Geez, remember collecting green stamps, like our mom's used to do? Thank you to the forum for making all this possible for Phil and his work, he's a good man.

Some have requested I sign their manual. I plan to inscribe all of the
manuals to whoever orders. So it might be better to tell me if you do
not want my inscription. In the case of orders for more than one manual
let me know who you want them inscripted to.

Thank you for the compliment Red. I'm not as good a man as I once
was, but I'm as good once as I ever was. We still have things around
the house that my wife bought with green stamps years ago.

So, I guess bitcoins are out too! I definitely want to get one of your great manuals. Holster history and pictures really "float my boat" and I feel sure your manual will have me riding high on the water!!!

Thank you for the compliment Red. I'm not as good a man as I once
was, but I'm as good once as I ever was. We still have things around
the house that my wife bought with green stamps years ago.
At some point I'll get an autographed copy, too. When I do, I'll hang it on the wall next to my autographed John Wayne pic, my autographed bare-chested Madonna pic, my autographed bare-everything from my friend Elizabeth when she was a Penthouse centrefold in '97 (original copy) and (if you know your Big Bang Theory) my autographed restraining order from Leonard Nimoy :-).

Default UPDATE

Most of you who said you were sending your order have done so
but there are still about half a dozen that I have not received.
Remember if I have your order by the 21st, your order will
ship by the 31st. Thank you.

Thank you Red. You and John each received one of my original
3 prototypes knowing you would tell me if you found anything
significantly in error.

Corrections, changes, and additions have been made. Printer
gets it on 8/21. They will be shipped by 8/31.

I plan to send both you and John an updated version.

A sample of additions: I was fortunate to get the unmarked
Chic Gaylord and Seventrees from John shown below.

And having you Red, our resident Doctor of Holsterology
authenticate them, makes them just as good as if they were
marked.

I am grateful to both of you.

Gaylord on the left with my S&W 642.
Seventrees on the right with S&W Model 19 Combat Magnum.

You are one lucky b*****d Phil (asterisks mine)

When I get a nice holster, all I do is take it apart; which is what happened to my Sessums (I learned he used no glue at all, not even for the lining much less the welt).

I have a younger brother who is a PhD in Chemistry, and an
older sister. I used to always say my brother got the brains,
my sister got the looks, and I guess I got the luck.

One time a lady asked me where I was when the brains were
passed out. I said I guess I was over getting all the looks.
She said it must be Hell to get beat out of both.

But I really do believe I am furtunate and I count my blessings
every day. All of you friends here on the forum are one of
those blessings.

Today is August 21st. Total Eclipse Day. Hotel rooms in the area have
gone up ten fold. Lots of lookers flocking in to the area. It is also my
wife's Birthday. (I better go shopping)
It is also the day the final edited and improved manual goes to the
printer. Right on schedule.
All orders received as of after mail today will be shipped by August 31st
as promised.
If you have not ordered, you still can. Your manual will be shipped
within a reasonable time.
Thanks to you all.
Phil
