    I know some of you think the whole zombie thing is a little goofy. I do too, but I have a bunch of friends who are into it, and I figured what the heck why not make a zombie holster. So here it is. The “blood” is Testers paint. The biohazard emblem is pressed into the Kydex when the holster is formed and then colored in. what do you all think?

    Looks pretty cool. You formed it yourself?

    Make em, sell the pee out of em to gamers and hipsters then when this most recent fad runs its course we'll pick up a nice holster used on the cheap and normalize things with a shot of krylon fusion.

    Fusion does work on klydex doesn't it?

    I like the hybrid you have. How much extra do you charge for guns you don't have on your list? I'd be interested in one for a M&P compact if it wouldn't break the bank.

    For a common gun like that, I wouldn't charge anymore. Also, that list has not been updated for a while I have the 4.25" M&P is that the "compact"? they always confuse me with that.

    Here's a marketing idea for you. There are a lot of gun ranges across the country that have "Zombie Shoots" around Halloween. These would be great as a prize for stage winners, overall winners, or as a door/raffle prize. You could donate a couple to a range in exchange for a sponsorship.

    You know, that's a great idea. I have been up to the DPMS zombie shoot in MN. I think I will contact them and see about doing that.
    Thanks for the idea.

    Glad you like it. The first idea's free. After that I become a paid consultant :)

    I think the holster looks great. I hope you sell piles of them.

    Not my thing, but I think you'll sell a lot of them.

    Zombies will eventually trend-out, but take the money while it's there.

    Exactly

    But for the record, I do like the two tone kydex holsters like this one, or especially where the back sheet is just a little bigger than the front, so you can see the back color, too. Looks neat.

    Looks like a cool product. If you get the right marketing going, your turnaround time should be more than 2 weeks. It's not my style, but if I had disposable income, I'd get it for October.

    Good job. Keep hoping that "Walking Dead" continues to enthrall the audience.

    Try selling some with an electric blue backing for people who actually know that radiation is more likely going to shine blue and not green. I think it's pretty cool nonetheless except for where the biohazard imprint gets cut off due to the shaping of the gun. maybe try centering them so they're cut off equally on both sides?

    Pretty cool; that would perfect for the "zombie shoot" 3 gun I'm going to next weekend. :)

    I think the zombie fad is 'fun'. You did a great job with this holster. Not something I would carry, but for a 'zombified' thing, it's perfect.

    I wouldn't dare concealed carry with something like that. The last thing one should want after using a firearm in self defense is to be portrayed as one who does not take carrying a firearm seriously.
