Wow--cutest gun cosy ever! And I'm pretty sure I'd still be saying that even if I had seen any others!  Grin

Weapons should not be glamorized.

Of course many weapons are already so cool they don't need any help in the glamour department, but this cosy is still cute anyway.

I think it's funny in the way that Stephen Colbert is funny, which may be the best possible compliment I can think of.

I love this- it is the all-time best cozy for anything, ever.
And GatsbyGirl, you are hilarious! "I'm really grooving on the slogan. It's like, "I really like you America. We can totally be friends, but let's not get all carried away and call it 'love.'"

The Glock is my dream firearm.  This cozy is awesome and full of irony.  I grew up in a house where there were guns but we were taught from a very young age that they were to be respected and we were taught how to use them.  When I was little I thought it was because with 3 daughters my daddy needed to do 'boy stuff' (we also learned how to change flats and oil, and I even rebuilt a motor with my dad)  but as a 31 year old woman I realize he didn't want to raise helpless girls and I cannot express enough thanks to him for that. 

You did an absolute awesome job with this.

Awesome!  It's totally a "steel fist in velvet glove" thing!

Great job incorporating the open slide with gun lock feature.  I don't know whether you meant to make some historical reference, but the mother of pearl snaps are a nice nod to the old fashioned mother of pearl handled pistols of yore.  Rick-rack!  Ha!

i love this, you did a great job on it! My grandpa has a little knitted cap with a jingle bell on the end of the barrel of his shot gun. Gotta keep 'em dust free and cozy. Grin

Well, I AM a crazy gun person and this is AWESOME. I love how you can still use the cable lock with it...Safety first, irony second!
