    No Wally World for me, yet!

    My wife and I finally received our permits last Saturday.

    However, she wouldn't let me order my holster at the beginning of the year due to her misunderstanding how custom orders work. After a heated discussion this morning and clearing up the misunderstanding, I finally ordered from Kevin today. I still don't understand what the issue is or was but, nevertheless, now I must wait longer to go through the rite of passage. I have the gun, I have the permit, but I don't have my holster. Arrgh! Oh well, I am excited to be getting leather from Kevin. Heard nothing but good about him and his work.

    Sorry, I didn't really intend to rant, just wanted to tell someone that cares that I got my permit and I ordered my custom leather.

    Good for you Willie, perhaps you should have shown her the lead times for custom leather on the various webs sites, including Kevin's. Maybe then you could have better plead your case. Wait time can be months and months, depending on the holster maker.

    Can you pass off buying a cheapie in the meantime? Better nylon than nothing at all...

    Why not get a kydex or off the shelf leather to hold you until your custom comes in?

    I agree with SIXTO. Get yourself a "cheapie" until the good one comes in. Then go "take the walk".

    Well, look at it this way...
    If an attempted BG decides to take your wallet, he won't care if you have a quality holster or a cheap 'get me by'...but he will care if you can defend yourself with a firearm...get the cheapie for the wait...

    Stay armed...at least have it with you...stay safe!

    Get a Fobus Paddle. In spite of all the "garbage" talk I have used them for over 10 years when I find it more convenient to slip on a paddle. If you want an excellent, but more expensive Kydex go for Comp-tac. I have a couple of their paddle holsters, and normally they can get one to you in about a week the last time I heard. They are really nice to deal with.
    Comp-Tac

    In time your K&D holsters will come, and Kevin does outstanding work. I think that from time to time you will find the Kydex paddle holsters useful. I use them for the range most of the time.

    Best,
    Jerry

    Galco makes some nice holsters too, and readily available in most gun stores. I like the Serpa holsters from Blackhawk myself, and use one often.
