    Spoke with Lou yesterday, he had taken some time off due to the high heat in his area and that his non air-conditioned shop was a bear to work in. He is back now and normally responds to e-mails within 72hrs at most.

    From what I understand he has more orders than he can fill as it is. The website just made things "worse". You can email him at LFAlessi@cs.com. Just be ready for a serious wait time. My number should be coming up soon!

    I can't believe you guys would buy holsters from a sweat shop.

    My order dates back to last November but it will be well worth it as Lou is the best in the biz and also one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure to meet!!

    Maybe we should take up a collection and buy him an A/C unit....it might speed up production a bit......Uncle Lou deserves it for what he has contributed to CCW holster design and the willingness to share his knowledge with others.

    Tangle,

    Uncle Lou, has never had a website. I am trying to say this politely but Lou Alessi isn't really into computers and his website was always a dream that never became reality. Lou is a great guy but computer technology isn't him. R&F: http://www.rfholsters.com/rfholsters/default.asp? is as close to an Alessi website as you will get. I hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Richard

    Your right to a point, Lou did have a website front that was started with a couple nice pictures of holsters with gun's in the IIRC. The site alway's said "coming soon" or something like that and then I guess it expired.

    So there was an attempt for a website, www.alessileather.com Even tho it doesn't come up now, it was there just not completed.
