What a buck buys...


Recommended Posts

Was at the Local Rifle & Pistol Club show this weekend and had a table. Sunday morning I see a item on a table and ask the price. seller replied "one dollar". I didnt see it friday on set up and was there til 9 pm Friday night. Still fun items to be found for just a buck.

Well, heck, Ron.  I would have risked breaking my arm getting my wallet out fast for that one.  It looks like one of the holsters made in Vietnam for private purchase by US servicemen.   

 

Given the mag pouch feature does it fit a M1911A1 .45 pistol?

Nice one Ron. Oh, I miss going to shows.  And I miss the random garage or estate sale I happen to stop at in passing.  Here is a nice bunch of stuff I picked up at an estate sale I hit just before things shut down.  The 1945 Volrath canteen, and the Navy soap box were a buck each (the canteen was half off!).  The big ticket item was the Navy flashlight...  a whopping 2 bucks.  

 

Good hunting everyone!

I like the ones with the magazine pouch on them.

I have never seen a holster like the one posted and now within a week another one is for sale in the FS section. Were these mass produced?

They were commonly available for purchase and it appears they were mass produced....

That's a great shot, Doyler.  Thanks for posting it.

 

Although the view of the handgun in the holster is obscured it appears to me to be a M1911A1 pistol, which would make the ammunition in the belt loops .45 ACP.   The airman is also carrying a Jet Pilot Survival Knife.

 

Regards,

Charlie

Nice holster and photos, a few years ago I found a Viet made holster for a .38 for a dollar too at a gun show. Have found a number of viet made holsters locally over the years all for cheap as no one really knows what they are.

I've had the opposite experience - I've found three of the belts over the years but never a holster.  I did once find a belt and holster together but never a single holster on its own.

Found another couple days ago. This is made for a left handed person.
