I think it would be better if no *due by* date was announced, and thus create the expectation...and maybe only after the wallet worker has finalised the design and roth Rick is happy with it, only then should the pre-orders be taken?

happy to wait - its just nice to know whats going on...i don't email Rick cos he's busy enough, that's why forums are useful cos he can reach the masses by doing something once...

Hang in there Rick. This one will be worth it. As I said before, thank you for taking the time to make sure it meets your expectations. I'm truly excited to get this. Smile

I'm with you Rick! And I enjoy your preorders, cause I know you will deliver! Quality products!
My experience is that Rick offers great customer support.

Would like to echo the two thoughts above. I like the pre-orders and am really looking forward to receiving the Showdown wallet.

Classic, it only takes a few mmmmm "people" to ruin it for everyone else!
Hey Rick - I'm Spartacus! It's corny but just sayin' don't let the doubters ruin what you do.

Went on to the Outlaw site today to order a hideout wallet, then saw the showdown, read this thread and nearly had a heart attack! The rollercoaster of emotions that are going on here! Crazy business eh!

Well, I have two questions if anyone would be kind enough to answer,

1. What is a 'Sho-gun' wallet? I feel a bit embarrassed to ask because I feel I should know, but I have never been into wallets!

2. When can i, as silly non pre-orderer, get my muggy hands on one?

"Silly non pre-orderer"? That must be sarcasm Smile

We have no idea when this is actually going to be released since there have been so many delays already. But I hope soon, maybe next week?

No it was genuine! I wish I had pre-ordered, Roth always delivers in the end, and now I have to pay more and wait longer, whatever delay you have, I have to wait much longer!

Sigh, so could someone explain roughly what a sho-gun wallet is?

eek

Hi guys,

Ran Pink here. I spent several weeks this past fall collaborating with Rick on the design of the Showdown wallet.

What we came up with was so "out of the box" that even after several discussions on the phone with the wallet maker, emailing drawings, schematics and diagrams, the manufacturer still could not quite grasp what it was we wanted.

The manufacturer is the same one that makes the Magnum and the Hideout and he's very good.
He assured us he could do it but we would have to approve each version he did.
We received a few prototypes and they were not quite right and they did not get approved.
We finally built our own mock-up of the actual wallet and sent it off.

As you're well aware this process has taken much longer than we had originally thought it would and I too want to apologize for the wait and thank you guys for sticking with us.

I'll be posting pictures and a video in the next day or two of the final approved wallet that is in my hands and in production right now, but it will still be 2-3 weeks away due to production and international shipping to us.

You can load cards and billets, peek closed wallet and open wallet, swami, steal, no palm card to wallet, switching wallet and hidden index's' and pockets for all the multiple outs you could want, all in this beautiful, diabolical little wallet.

We are so happy with the final version we feel it was well worth the long wait. Once again our manufacturer has pulled off a design that has never been tried, and has done it perfectly.

I'll be posting links to pictures and video shortly.

Thanks guys!

Ran,

I'm so happy that this is getting closer. You and Roth are perfectionists. And I truly appreciate the time and effort you have both put into getting this 100% perfect. I simply cannot wait. This is the most versatile wallet I've ever seen. Ever!
