Florida Man found not guilty of accidentally bringing a gun to NY.

He was just helping move a girlfriend out of the Big Apple but got stopped by the police and D.A. Cy (I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse) Vance tried to nail him to the wall. Fortunately the Jury found him innocent much to the ire of No-Knife Vance.

“We respect the jury’s verdict in this case, of course, and thank them for their service. But we will continue to protect our community from those who illegally possess loaded guns in Manhattan. Any possession of a loaded firearm in this metropolitan area has the potential for deadly consequences, to our residents and visitors alike.”

The guy is a serious douchebag. He has his own racketeering scheme going on against knife vendors that would make Vito Corleone and John Gotti green with envy.

Kydex Holster for Sibari Hun Side Bag.

I bought the Missus a Sibari Hun Side Bag at her request.  It does not look like your usual fanny pack, has a shoulder strap with pad and comes in a gray that looks more blue than anything.

However I was less than impressed with the “holster” that came with the bag. The kindest thing I can say is that it looks like half a sock made out of Velcro.

The bag also lacks a mag pouch in the gun compartment and that did not sit well with yours truly. So I pulled out the assorted tools, jigsaw, heat gun, sticky Velcro patches, dremmel and leftover Kydex (must order more soon) to make a quickie holster for the Missus’s Kahr CW9. The result was not bad at all if I might say so myself.

I did say leftover kydex! the back of the holster and the tongue of the mag pouch are completely covered in the hook side of the Velcro and attaches to the very generous loop side in the bag. There is a retention screw in the holster to add just the slightest pressure so the gun does not shift or comes out. The natural spring tension of the Kydex was enough for the magazine.

We’ll see how it holds in real life.

FTC or FCC or whatever disclaimer: I bought the darn thing with my own cash. I don’t know the people of Sibari and after the half Velcro Sock comment, I am sure they will not want to know me either.
