Does this make sense?

I have a Wilson Professional 4" 1911 on order. Even though the pistol has not yet been made, I have already ordered a set of Cocobolo grips from Esmeralda for it. Also have ordered a belt from Lou Alessi (expected delivery 6 months), a holster from Tony Kanaley (expected delivery 5-6 months), and am considering ordering a second holster from Tony. Two holsters for the same pistol that I haven't even handled yet. Have I gone over the edge or does it make sense to other 1911 owners?

who are we

to judge another gun owner for getting excited about his new custom baby that hasnt even been delivered! Expecting mothers buy weeks and weeks worth of baby clothing and 50 dollar shoes for a kid that isnt here yet and better yet wont even be able to walk for a good long while after that so get excited and buy your baby whatever you think it will like. If I had the money you bet I would be.

LB,
Insofar as the belt and holsters take so long to be made and delivered, it is much better to order them now, rather than wait. You'll hopefully have them when the pistol arrives. Makes perfect sense to me!:)

LHB1,

The only thing that doesn't make sense is that you're just ordering a belt from Lou and not a holster too.:eek:

Which holster have you ordered from Sparks and which other one are you considering?

Smith,
Not to worry. I have one of friend Lou's holsters already for a 5" gun and several of his belts. I wear an Alessi belt every day but I like Tony's 55BN holster for OWB wear and #1 Heritage for IWB. I have ordered another #1 Heritage for the new 4" Wilson and am considering adding an HR-LTD holster to the order. Both the latter holsters are lined with smooth leather which I really prefer. So far, I prefer the narrow belt space occupied by the #1 Heritage and Lou's PCH over the wider type holsters like VM2 and HR-LTD.

Makes perfect sence to me. If you waited til you got the gun to order the holster you would be holding it & looking at it instead of carying it.
Makes perfect sence to me.
