    Mark Garrity...

    Any of y'all know how to get in touch with Mark Garrity?...I placed an order with him about 7 months ago...he told me he had a 4 to 6 month turn around so I e-mailed him the other day to check on the progress of my custom holster...no response...I called him today and got an automated response saying "the code or number you have dialed is incorrect"...called information...got the same number that's on his website...I'd be abliged if any of y'all could help me get in touch with him.

    That doesn't sound like Mark. I hope nothing has happened.

    To me that sounds exactly like Mark.

    He has, from my expirience, an inability to deliver as promised, and while he is a fine craftsman, is a poor business manager. The inability to get in touch with him after the projected completion date, no phone response, and lack of communication via Email tends to mirror my expirience with the individual.

    To be fair, I would give him six weeks past the projected completion date. There are things in leather bending that are beyond the control of the leather bender. After that, he's fair game as far as I'm concerned.

    Agreed. He's a great craftsman, but have had the same experience just trying to reach him to place an order, what's less getting an order. I've heard all the excuses that he has a normal life and LEO job, works bad hours, etc.; I'm a LEO and had the same hours and issues with shift work the last 20 years (the last 12 of which entail a lot of 12-16 hr days), but put something on your site that you aren't taking orders or respond in an email or phone-call to the same...or give it up altogether until you can put your time into it.

    Things happen for a reason I guess. Since I couldn't get a hold of him, I ended up ordering a holster from Tauris Holsters ( http://www.taurisholsters.com/ ) Probably the finest holster I have ever owned or worn, hands down. What's more, I got it in 2 weeks, even with custom additions he made just for me.

    Well I'm certainly not ready to give up on him at this point...nor am I bashin' him...I realize there are many quality custom holster craftsmen out there, but Mark is the only one that is makin' the type of holster I want...I'll give him all the time he needs...I'd just like an update as to where he's at with the project so I've got an estimated time of when I can start usin' it.

    I certainly know from experience how demanding a LEO job can be. The same can be said for custom holster making. However it seems that there's a point when one would have to choose to have either a full time job or a full time business.

    I think he stopped giving approximate timelines and whatnot a year or so ago. He also doesn't take any funds up front.

    I have a crossdraw holster I paid for back in 2007 but never received. Sent many, many emails and left many phone messages but never did end up speaking with a human about the problem, nor did I ever receive a call-back or email once the original payment and order had been received and confirmed. I basically gave up trying over the past year.

    If anyone knows a fool-proof way to contact him (or anyone at the organization), I too would be grateful.

    Contact information that I had used up to then:

    That gets me to the AZ AG, not anyone at Garrity's. Perhaps this will be the only route that works. Thanks for the reminder of alternative recourse.

    FWIW, I had a very good experience with Mark about a year ago. I posted a review of the holster (excellent) and the service (excellent as well) on here back then...
