Had to get bloodwork done for my annual. went to the lab, only two people in the waiting room.. The city feels like it did during the 2013 flooding. People are being carefu...

Re: Does anyone know of a deep carry clip...

The MXG Gear deep carry clip for the Native 5 FRN fits the L'il Native Lockback perfectly! - only caveat is to use the original L'il Native screws, the MXG gear ones are a tad to long. http://www.albertatimeservices.ca/photos/mxg_lil_native_3.jpg http://www.albertatimeservices.ca/photos/mxg_...
