Recently, two of my good friends married each other. Since I was responsible for the introduction, I took photos of the ceremony. I also wanted to come up with memorable wedding presents that would still be in use years later. I found a suitable rifle for the groom…picking the right present for the bride was harder. I considered lace but wasn’t sure that was her style. Latex was right out, as fitting would have been required and the element of surprise would have been lost. So leather was the next obvious choice.
Trouble is, the girl is perverted enough to carry a .22 pistol. What kind of concealment leather could be found for a Mosquito? Not much, I can tell you that. Fortunately, I knew a guy named Erik. Yes, that Erik of Sideguard Holsters. Even without a Mosquito in hand, he managed to make a holster that was a perfect fit.
And, to top it off, he made a low profile IWB mag pouch. Carrying a .22 makes spare magazine pretty much mandatory. At least with CCI .22s misfires seem nonexistent, so that concern typical of rimfire ammunition isn’t a factor.
