    Well, considering that any "good" pair of audio headphones are typically $100-$300 by themselves, I wouldn't expect much out of them. But the fact that it blocks loud noises, such as that of a mower, and provides any bluetooth at all, is attractive to me.

    Maryland distribution center shooting

    It isn't that there is or isn't anything special for any particular group, but rather that TGO should not be a place for people to come and express their hate for other groups. I specified minorities because it is typically minorities that are on the receiving end of that hate.

    I didn't suggest not to discuss it, if someone is transgender that is a fact as much as being a male or female is fact. Facts of an event are relevant. However, my suggestion was to simply show respect instead of hate towards transgender people.

    I just realized I want those Peltors twice over now because they'd be great while mowing. Since the higher end version has Bluetooth, they'd be perfect for listening to music while doing that or other loud yard work. I'd assume it would work pretty okay.

    Maryland distribution center shooting

    Lets all keep in mind the Diversity and Inclusion Thread. Just as any of these events are, what happened in Maryland was tragic. However, lets keep the comments against trans people out of and off TGO. While anyone's personal beliefs could be for or against, the question we have to ask ourselves here at TGO is whether a trans person should feel welcome here at TGO. Representing the 2nd Amendment community, I think the answer to that question should be a yes. If someone of any minority should decide to join TGO, they should feel welcome here. If they don't, we may very well push them straight towards the anti-gun community. We should be working to grow our numbers, not create an exclusive club where everyone agrees 100% with each other on all controversial issues.
  6. More often than not, experiences shape outlook. Someone at a young age sees their classmates murdered by someone with a gun? Of course the majority of people in that situation would be anti-gun afterwards. A few may not, but it is likely that those would have probably already been pro-gun to begin with. It has always greatly irritated me that many in gun culture have been so quick to not only write-off most of these victims (less face it, all of the students in these scenarios were victims), but to even go as far to verbally slander them in various ways. You never change someone's mind by calling them names, stupid, etc. You change someone's mind by listening to them, considering their input and life experiences, and at some point suggesting that maybe there is a better way/opinion. Of course it doesn't always work, but it sure does work better than calling someone names, telling them that they are stupid/wrong, and invalidating the fact that they survived a school shooting but conversely watched their classmates get killed. That never works.

    Do you by any chance have any IWB hardware that you could attach to the Vedder and see what happens? I sold both of my Raven holsters (one for a Surefire light, one without a light). I had the IWB hardware, now I wish I had pulled the IWB hardware off and kept it.

    Just emailed Vedder to see what they'd say about converting one of those to IWB with the appropriate hardware along with whether or not they'd do a Glock w/ TLR-7 attached.

    That is...indeed...a copy. As @MacGyver hinted above, there used to be a bunch of people that copied Raven to an extent with this style holster. It seems the majority of them have gone away. Originally, I would have only bought Raven, since I like giving credit where credit is due (I believe Raven was probably the original manufacturer of a holster this style, or at least the one that brought it mainstream). However, since Raven no longer makes this style, I can in better conscience buy it from a "copycat". Since the hole spacing looks exactly the same, I'd suppose the offset wings and IWB loops would still work. Although, unless it is necessary, I'd as well let/request that they leave the retention adjustment screw off.

    Nice! That's a good looking holster, but unless they'll do custom configurations it seems they don't offer it with a TLR-7 option. It seems OWB only, but perhaps could be adapted to IWB. Thanks for this, I always enjoy discovering new holster manufacturers I haven't heard of. I think that's something I loved about the Raven so much. OWB or IWB, the clips or loops were spread far enough apart to not only spread out the weight but also prevent the holster from tilting. The DSG that I am currently using, since it only has one of those single wider clips, can slightly rotate on the same plane that your belt is on. It isn't extreme, but it is there. The Raven/similar, on draw, is very stable. I'm hoping that the Zulu with two loops will somewhat address that.

    over/under washer/dryer combo advice

    1: If they are repair people, they can and should be able to diagnose themselves. 2: If the above is not true, find new repair people. 3: If it leaks (water out the drain), could be a solenoid valve sticking open or something similar. 4: If it doesn't leak (water out the drain), which is sounds like it does/may, could be some sort of sensor that is malfunctioning and thinking it is full. 5: It's also possible either the fill line is partially blocked or a valve is partially closed. Although it should, in my opinion, still fill completely. It would just be slower in this scenario. If it has done this always, get it fixed. If it just started, one thing to try would be to go to your circuit breaker panel and turn off the breaker for the washer. Most of these things have quite a few electronics in them now; it is possible that a simply "reset" could make it work properly. Our dryer occasionally completely "quits" and the only way to "fix it" is to turn the power off for a moment and then turn back. It has one of those electronic dials and it just temporarily stops receiving input. The reset fixes it.

    Oh, I know that. I'm just saying **if** they were further apart, it would be possible. I'm merely talking about holsters, no necessarily Squared Away. Like I said, in all of this I've watched quite a few YouTube videos of both foam pressing and vacuum. I guess ultimately my point was simply that I personally do not see anything inherently unique to the vacuum process that would exclusively prevent a holster similar to that as a Raven Phantom. I'm also just sad to see that what I perceive to be the "custom holster market" going away or morphing into the "mast produced holster market". For example, what does vacuum pressing offer me as the consumer? I can literally think of none. So they say the Phantom LC that I loved dearly was foam pressed? It held the gun snugly, and offer a nice "click" both auditory as well as physical. It held the gun 100% and there was never a single time that it nearly "came out" due to not enough retention. Personally, I care not whether the kydex hugs ever nook and cranny in a gun. Conversely, I believe the flatter/smoother it is (at least the side touching your body), the more comfortable. So the magic is finding the right level of smoothness coupled with the appropriate level or grip/retention to the firearm. Vacuum pressing, on the other hand, in my opinion, appears to drastically decrease production time. That is my perceived takeaway, maybe I'm wrong. The feeling I'm getting though is that a lot of manufacturers are going away from "custom" and straight to mass production. I respect that. To be able to cut costs in the form of reducing labor hours while at the same time increasing production, that seems like a profitable decision in my observation. Raven Concealment is a perfect example of this. They used to, hands down, be my favorite manufacturer. I recommended them to everyone I know that carries. However, those people preferred their "Alien Gear Holsters" because they were $30 and a custom Raven Phantom or Phantom LC was $100+ after you bought appropriate hardware, etc. Now, Raven has basically abandoned the "custom" market in every shape and form. They make an injection molded OWB holster, certain IWB holsters, and 99% of what they make is for Glocks. It may be 100%, I'm not sure. In other words, Raven Concealment produces zero products that I am even remotely interested in. I as much told them that directly and told them I was sad to lose them as my favorite holster manufacturer. But, in their own words, they want to be able to "fulfill large government contracts", and I respect that. In the end these companies are only in business to make money. Well I understand that 100%. I don't fault any of them for making or not making anything specific. Hey, I really do hope I like the Zulu. The DSG listed in an above post is ok. It isn't perfect. In fact, in my opinion, it isn't even safe (re-holstering seems less than optimal, even potentially dangerous). But it carries ok. Hopefully, I will like the Zulu much, much more. I sincerely mean that. I'm open to change. That doesn't mean I always like it, but I'll try. If it doesn't suite me as well as I hope, then I'll try making something myself.

    Actually, a coworker has everything he needs as he tried getting into the holster business but never really did. I may very well try to do exactly that. We were talking about it this morning at work actually, I think he just wants everything "gone" and I've got the space for it. He said it "gone" would make his wife very happy.
