    Question-Alien Holsters

    For you all that have Alien Gear Holsters. My account on Alien Gear shows that my item that I ordered on Dec 15th has gone from pending to hold. WTH does that mean? Thought I'd ask here before I contact them. Thanks

    I don't know. Probably best to contact them. My order of 26 Dec still shows "processing". Did your CC charge go through?

    Call them up... but I have seen others report misleading lead times, while others get their holsters in a very short time. They seem kind of inconsistent, part of the reason I have not ordered on to try it.

    I hesitate to post this but I'm going to go ahead and do it. I ordered a holster from SHTF Gear on December 26th and it was in my mailbox January 4th. Maybe Alien Gear is a whole lot busier?

    For perspective, even this summer they were running about 2 weeks or so, and you figure at their price plus word of mouth they've probably been swamped with holiday orders. I like mine, was pleased with the quality for the price. I would definitely contact them, just as a peace of mind thing.

    I emailed them just after placing my order with a question and got a prompt response that because of the holidays they were on a two week schedule. Hopefully sooner but maybe not. That was a week ago.

    I have emailed and am waiting on response. Two questions: Are clips included in their $30 price? What is shipping cost?

    I'm still waiting on a Shield model from a December 21st order. I don't need it yet but I don't like having things I've already paid for just lingering out there with no real ETA. And as I mentioned in my own thread, I'm not thrilled that they list the product as "in stock" when it clearly hasn't been assembled yet.

    Hey PJR: Since you just replied, wondering if you could answer my previous reply. Did the $30 include clips or is that extra and how much was shipping?

    Further to your reply, I would venture to say that most holster makers are not large inventory, off the shelf, companies and though they wish "in stock" and "within 10 days" it is just a wish and not a fact. There are makers out there who can make you wait months--it is part of the process. "PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE".

    My holster came complete with everything including extra hardware it was about 38 bucks including shipping. I use it everyday and now carry my Kimber more than ever.

    It put in an order just after Christmas. Mine hasn't shown any updates yet. I checked on their Facebook page and it looks like they were running 4-6 weeks behind BEFORE the holiday. I also noticed that some of the snaps used for the clips are on backorder. That might explain your hold.

    There were a ton of people complaining on FB that they weren't returning e-mails or phone calls because they've been so backed up. If they don't get back to your e-mail fairly quickly, I would suggest posting a nice note on their FB page. Hopefully you'll hear something sooner that way.

    I think it was 38 also but I don't know about extra hardware. I'm a very patient person but I ordered an "in stock" item. I knew it was near Christmas so I didn't expect it before Jan 1st but I ordered it specifically because there was no months long shipping estimate. Luckily my CCW class fell through so I don't need it right away, and I bought a Blackhawk OWB (a really nice holster for $20 btw) at Wal Mart for the range and to carry while bow hunting. It's not a huge deal. If it was I'd have cancelled the order. I just thought i'd let people know that if they order it they won't see it in 5 days or anything. They responded to my email quickly when I asked. I think it would be nice though if they could put a realistic estimate. 2-3 weeks in the holster business really isn't that unrealistic.

    Yes, the clips are included. Everything you need to start wearing it right away, including an allen wrench. The shipping is $6.95.

    Still waiting for my shield holster as well (ordered on 12/20). I'm sure they're backed up from the holiday season.
