Nice. I contacted a local guy to make me one for my 22/45 like that but a little wider with a spot for my suppressor. Was not worth the $165 he wanted to charge for it. Some day I will get the stuff to make my own.

Man, I sure would like to find someone local with your problem. I'd like about a dozen made for different guns and carry styles.

I need one of these. Mostly just to get a good eye roll from the wife.

I had a S&W kit gun (can't remember the model number) in .22. Can't get much smaller......that thing ALWAYS worked. Wish I still had it. They're "prohibited" in Canada now (dumb fucking government) because the tubes are only 4"??? But it was SMALL

Esp. if you get an IWB model...

I have not been able to bring myself to like the plastic holsters yet, but I know a lot of people do.

That Magpul breakdown gun reminds me of the HK MP5K in a briefcase:



I saw an HK dealer shoot one in North Carolina at an IPSC competition back in 1998 or 99. It was a great idea, with the trigger in the handle. You could basically hold the handle with one hand and grab the bottom of the briefcase with the other, and spray rounds all over the damn place.

Speaking of that, the HK dealer drove his van, and backed it right up to the range - inside it looked like a gun lover's wet dream. HKs hung on pegboards all around the walls, like some sort of super-spy secret hideout.

If you need the space in your safe, I promise I'll keep them nice and comfy here with me.
GAP can surely build them. I've placed top 3 in every match I've run them in except for 3. Luckily I have a place to stretch them out and shoot to 850 yds regularly.

Sweet - that looks to be a bit older than mine, it certainly has better wood, mine is opaque stained - still shoots nice - I love mine.

How about a blackpowder .22 that uses papercaps (from capguns) as a primer.
