    Ankle Gun?

    i know some of you guys must ankle carry your x42 from time to time. i am looking to possibly ankle carry at work because my usual pocket or appendix positions get in the way too much with my job. most of the time my j-frame gets locked in my tool box for a good portion of the day. i need something that will fit over an 8 inch work boot and be comfortable for 10-12 hr. work days. low profile and stable is also needed. i am willing to pay for a good one. it just has to work.

    Alessi Holsters

    Hello Everyone,

    This is Tom Kulwicki, the new owner of my best friends holster business, Alessi, along with Lou's wife Ida and daughter Alex. After Louie's death, we decided to carry on in his name and produce holsters EXACTLY the way Lou taught us. My wife and Ida went to high school together, so I had the pleasure of spending time with Louie for over 25 years. There were many lessons in the shop, not only how to work with leather, but how to work with people. Louie would share his knowledge with anyone who asked, a finer gentleman you will never find. Every day I try to live up to his reputation, it isn't easy, but I never give up trying. I learned a lot over the 25 years and still learning today.

    We have in our shop all of the equipment that Louie used, dies, molds, tools etc., including Mary Lou, who was with Louie when he made his first holster over 34 years ago in his basement. Mary Lou checked every holster before it left the shop for Louie and still does today.

    We've moved to a newer, larger more modern facility that has allowed us to add 2 additional sewing machines and more people. My daughter Katie has joined us as Office Manager and John, an experienced sewer that worked with Lou for nearly 12 years. This has helped us to fill all of Louie's prepaid backorders of close to 1700 because it was the "right" thing to do, as well as keep up with the Government contracts and normal everyday orders.

    As we produce holsters the way Louie did, one at a time, we stand by our product and still guarantee them for life as Louie did, or I should say as long as you own your weapon. So if one of our patented Talon clips fail, or a snap breaks, please return your holster to me for an immediate repair or replacement at no charge. Our web site is www.alessigunholsters.com and our phone number is 716-706-0321. Lou loved to talk on the phone and I will always take your call or if you like, you can email me at: tom@alessigunholsters.com.

    We pride ourselves on producing holsters that are 100% USA materials and outstanding customer service and we want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase, if for any reason you are not, please let me know and I'll do whatever is necessary to make it right, the same way Louie did.


    Thank you to all of our customers for your continued support,
    Tom

    Merry Christmas to all of my fellow 642'ers. I'm on the road this holiday weekend, trusty 642 riding in my strong-side pocket. Hope you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday.

    I picked up a new 642-2 this morning. I hope that I will enjoy it as much as you guys do. It seems to be a very nice revolver.

    Hope you get many years of use from your 642.
    You didn't go wrong.

    Welcome.

    You did good.

    The x42 is one of
    the finest SD handguns.
    Light, compact, powerful.

    You've got five shots with great concealability.
    If you need 10, get two, or just practice more.

    The key for the 642: fast double taps.

    You get two, then two more, then one.

    A JT1 approved speed strip gets 4 more.

    (10 shots are a very unlikely necessity for most of us.)

    I hope you never have to use it for SD.

    But if you need it, it's nice to know it's there.

    I'm leaving in the morning to move my fiancee back from Cali. (I'm probably the only one that didn't know it had two "e's".) :D

    A Merry Christmas to all of you that make this such an entertaining, informative and special place to visit!

    Bailey's in the coffee for breakfast.
    Smell of turkey cooking in the background and snow on the ground in East TN.

    Can I join your club? :)

    I got this one on Monday but have owned 4 of these bad boys over the years. I love this little J frame pocket pistol.

    Happy Holidays

    turned my Christmas bonus into this.. we recieved bonuses this year after bossman stopped them about 10 years ago..i had the cash in my pocket for a cool 4 hours. its not an AR or x42, or even a Smith and Wesson, but it is a fistfull of .357 Magnum and a blast to shoot and fairly easy to carry. it wont be replacing my 442 in the pocket but will come along iwb appendix on occasion. you have to love a good snub..

    Welcome to the Club. Nice photos. Sure looks good without the ILS.

    MCharlie-

    That's about the only other revolver I would consider outside a S&W. Those are nice rigs and will be around for years to come. Can't beat it. Thanks for pumping your bounus back into the economy. :D I already did with that AR.

    It's been a long time...

    but I am so glad (and warmed) to see a "Part Three" thread for the Club. The longevity of this thread is a testament to this beloved snubbie and the people who love it.

    My 642 now shares carry-duty with another revolver, but when I carry it (and I do so very often), I use my Mika round- cut pocket hoslter. This is a tried-and-true-real-life-tested configuration and one of the best IMHO for carrying/concealing the 642. I wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

    Regards,
    fiVe

    It Has Been a Long Time

    When you consider that all the pertinent facts regarding the X42 were covered in posts 1&2 in section I it has all been embellishment since then. ;)

    One May Day in 2005 in Post Number One fiVe said:

    He went on to say:

    In Post Number Two, Frandy (who is Frandy and where has he/she gone?) said:

    Hence about all one needed to know and the salient points were covered in the first two posts. :D

    Just goes to show you......this thing has taken on a life of its own. :uhoh: Thousands of people with a common gizmo and a Brotherhood of Man, Viva the The High Road Forum 642 Club.

    It's been a long time, but I'm checking in on the cusp of 2011.

    Going to have my 642 shipped to my new location soon.
    It's been in storage while I got settled in here.

    Tomorrow, I get settled in ... for while ...

    Happy New Year 642 Club

    May your X42 remain in its holster. May it serve you well in your time of need. May you be blessed with much range time. May your SGDFSB larder remain full and dry.
