Okay, here we go!
Just a refresher before we get into the items for auction.......
This auction benefits the Freedom is not Free charity which is a not for profit organization helping seriously wounded troops, or their families in the event the soldier is killed. A very worthwhile thing to support! Our troops put EVERYTHING on the line every day because it's the job they signed up for of their own free will. I've never met one who wanted anything other than to be remembered and a thank you. I encourage you to visit the site http://www.freedomisnotfree.com/ and see for yourself what we're supporting here. Every penny from this auction will go to the charity.
My thanks to Jerry for allowing us to this here. Thanks to Primersinmyshoe for donating his time and effort in collecting and forwarding the funds to the charity. Of course, my thanks to those who donated items for the auction!
Brock at Bluegrass holsters, Jeff at Boom-Stick holsters, Azmick, and Garlic Guy. Let's make this a success!
Okay, now for the details. All items will have an "Item #". Please use this when placing a bid in a post. At the close of the bidding (8:00 pm Central time Monday August 25th) I will record the winners. Probably on Tuesday, I will contact those winners with Primersinmyshoes address so they can mail the payment to him. Payment should be in the form of a check or money order made out to "Freedeom is not Free" so that all he has to do is put them in a package and mail them to the charity. Once he notifies me that payment has been received, the right person will bo contacted and the items will be sent out to the winners. Fair enough? Okay, let's get to the items up for auction......

I would like to place a bid of $55.00 on item #9. I too am ambidextrious when it comes to pistols but I really like the left-handed holster.

I would also like to place a bid of $50.00 on item #11. I've got my eye on a set of stipple finish wenge grips I saw on on 'thefinergrain.com'.

A thought. Let's keep questions and comments about the items in the other auction thread in the members forum if we can. This will help keep this thread clear for actual bidding and make it easier on everyone.
Thanks,
Sarge
