OMFG... I got a picture to send you Hiram.
So I decided to make my first strap shield as a Valentines day present last year or the year before, right? I also decided that when I was done, I would buy some upholstery grade leather and make a cover out of it... Since Ididn,t have ALL the tools needed I had a local shop do the sewing and what not... Long story short, after almost $200 I had a sweet, yet HEAVY shield cover that has passed MOST of the time... only sissies didn't like it and the excuses they gave were laughable in the least. Personally, it is just fine and I like getting bashed with it over the duckcloth covers that other people have.
I did it, only to tell everyone else that unless you want an expensive and heavy cover don't do it lol.
I will send you the pic later tonight man!
