Awesome, thank you.

Delivered all w/in 3 days of initial contact, I think.

That is a cool ass knife/sheath.

And you were a stellar guy to deal with.

On the Laser front you're looking at serious coin for most of us.
Epilogue has the same basic machine I presently have for somewhere in the $9k range and it still doesn't do steel. $18k and it still doesn't do steel. . .you get the idea. Costly.

All that said, you can "mark" on steel using products, like Cermark. It's really just a base to create an inky deposit to 'mark' onto the metal/steel.
Carrying forth from an earlier post about laser engravers.

Working on some new cabinet hardware for 2A South Along with a back splash I'm still fleshing out.

Cermark marking compound applied with my airbrush, then engraved on the laser.

Cool stuff.

I shot my first USPSA match and used the 2A Pro-S holster and the universal mag pouch. I had several other shooters ask me about my holster. The retention was tight, the draw was smooth and with the made to fit coutour it was very comfortable. I would choose this holster over safariland and bladetech holsters. The outstanding customer service is just the icing on the cake. Outstanding as always litepath. (Although I didn't do good enough to win Sharkys special holster)

If you guys are using 2A gear, take some video and talk about it. Send it to Litepath and he'll be able to use it as a customer testimonial. Those help a lot and we can make sure his business continues to be a success.

Will you bump it to $150 if the poster finds a way to work "goat clamps", "twatwaffle", and "pinky test" into the review?
