Garage Sale Salvage and Possible Boots. [Pic Heavy]
« on: Dec 21, 2012, 01:15 AM »
I just wanted to share a couple of things with you all. I resized the pictures to fall below 1000x1000, but if they are still too large I can resize again.

When I say "garage sale salvage" I mean, I saved this item from being sold in our family garage sale!  It was my own fault that it was in the "for sale" pile in the first place, but then I began my Mando kit and thought it would be a great addition.  It's a nice worn leather holster I bought at an old gun shop. It didn't fit my real pistol so I thought I would sell it. Nope! It has found a new purpose :)  It is actually it a little small for me, but I can resize it rather easily.






I found these boots at a Goodwill store for $15!  They appeared brand spankin' new, and showed no signs of having been worn. Any signs of wear on them now are from myself.  I am curious if these would make suitable boots. I've read that if the heel is too large they could get rejected once I decided to apply.  These boots have about a 2 inch heel. I also know that the "Steel Toe" imprint will have to be covered and possilbly the buckles sign the have writing on them.




Thanks for looking! Any comment and suggestions for either of these items is greatly appreciated!

The boots should be fine, when they say heels they mean like a woman's high heels, not your standard boot heels. Holster looks awesome, too.

great finds, but you are going to want to remove the ammo loops before it will pass CRLs.
