    The Coins Are Shipping! ... The Coins Are Shipping!

    The coins have finally arrived from the manufacturer and the first batch will go to the post office this afternoon!

    Considering that this is our first attempt at designing a coin for OpenCarry.org, I am very proud of what we came up with and I hope you are as well!

    Thanks to everyone who participated in the pre-order and made it possible and thanks for your patience as my Bar prep got in the way of getting them out sooner.

    I hope everyone likes them and I am looking forward to the reports on the forum as people receive them.

    Thanks for the update, John! I'm looking forward to receiving mine.


    ETA: Received mine on 8/2. Love them! The gold accents are just the right touch and they look much better in the hand than on the screen.

    Received mine today!!! They do look great! These coins have some weight to them. Very heavy. Nice work!!!

    My only complaint? I wish they are smaller so I could have had them inserted into a pair of grips for my 1911....

    Thank you for the coins. Love 'em !!!!!'

    Absolutely! I have already placed an order for more to have in stock. The original price was a bit of a loser to allow us to pay for the original setup but if anyone is interested, I will still honor the original two-for-one sale. Just go over to http://www.opencarry.org/challenge.html and order as many as you would like.

    The lead-time on new orders will be approximately 30 days according to the manufacturer.

    Thanks!

    John really out did himself this time. They are beautiful!

    Might suggest that they would make great inlays for a rifle stock.

    I thought it wasn't too late to have changed the capitalization errors at the time when I pointed them out? :/

    Other than that, they are beautiful, and were a great idea!

    Coins are excellent! I am being a crab apple and going to leave them in the packaging for safe keeping My wallet is big enough to have one in there with the package. I must say, I am 100% glad that I have joined this organization and since I have my weekends back I will be for sure planning on coming to get together as often as possible!
