no. 1 on my birthday wish list

I know my birthday is still a long time away (23rd March, woo) but I think I have found the 'holy grail' of magic apparatus, in my opinion that is.

As a magician, I always have this problem where my pockets, on my jacket and pants, bulge very obviously due to the number of decks that I carry on me as well as all the props(like coins, wands, elephants and rabbits) that I need to perform magic. So, to solve this 'common' problem that's faced by thousands of working magicians out there, a company called 'High Caliber Magic' built a HOLSTER based on a real-life shoulder holster for guns that are used by law enforcement officers around the world.

Maybe the .gif below will give you a basic idea of what I'm talking about:

As you can see, it looks mighty awesome and best part is, it's not going to affect how the jacket and pants look, eventhough the magician is packed with enough materials to start a cult. It can basically fit 2 decks of cards, a roll of coins, marker pen, extra props, elephants and rabbits.

I'm not selling this product very well but if you want more information, you can go to the website here: http://www.highcalibermagic.com/original.html

However, these things cost a bomb. The Original High Caliber Holster, which is the full rig that you see above costs USD$300. :o

For those of us, who can't afford the full rig, they also sell smaller holsters called the Ricochet(USD$175) and Derringer(USD$80). It's still very expensive but it still looks pretty darn kickass to carry around. To give you an idea of how they look:

Incredibly expensive, it is. Ah well, a boy can dream, can't he?
