    Premium holsters (in stock)?????

    My question is probably answered some where on here. Can anyone provide some names of dealers that keep custom high end holsters in stock. My primary carry is a g23. I just hate to wait 6+ months for a holster. By "high end" I mean, Alessi, Sparks, Mitch Rosen, Del Fatti, etc. I am not meaning to degrade any one's favorite holster maker. I am just talking about holsters you can get right away, like a Galco or G&G, or Hume versus an extended wait time for a truly custom job.

    My lead time is running 4 to 5 weeks. So take a look.

    Your options:

    1. Go to each of those holster maker's websites (except for Alessi, who has no website. a) see their ready-to-ship page or call them and see what they have in stock, b) check their listing of stocking dealers.

    2. Call these places and see what they have in stock:

    http://www.holster-connection.com/ht...ress_line.html (express line only)
    http://www.gunnersalley.com/category...osen_holsters/

    ETA: http://www.topgunsupply.com/VM2-GLOCK-c-34.html

    3. Check eBay and the larger gun boards religiously every day. I scored two Alessi holsters (one for G19, one for G17) recently that way.

    What you want is what we all want but for the most part, unless you're prepared to pay more than retail you get on a waiting list and use something else in the meantime.

    I have picked up a couple holsters on e-Bay but paid more to have them now.

    Being the winter season, it's a good time to order IWB holsters because you can get an OWB holster to hold you over till your order comes and thus not duplicate your order with two IWB's. Just a thought.

    There are places such as Lightning Arms and Coal Creek Armory that stock some custom leather, but the G19/23 is a VERY popular carry gun and leather for those guns do not stay in stock very long. Some makers do have an "express" line which cuts down on the lead time. Also like already stated, stay on top of the classifieds on the gun boards. Also, you could order from your favorite maker and pick up a comp-tac to hold you over, but you might like the comp-tac more and then cancel the custom leather. Anyway, good luck.

    There are a lot of quality holster makers on this forum...many take 6 months to a year.

    I you want a quality holster, fairly priced, in 3 - 5 weeks, seek out Fist, Inc...

    Go the Related Links above...find holsters...find Fist...

    But you'll get boned today as opposed to 80% boned in 12 months.

    My answer was to go ahead and order what I want knowing about the wait. I also purchased an interim holster to use from a less "popular" maker but one that I feel is very good. Unfortunately the holster maker I made my purchase from doesn't make the style I wanted. But I will use that holster for OWB.

    Good luck on finding one without waiting. I don't think it's possible.

    One of our site sponsers is Lighting Arm Sports, they carry Alessi, Sparks, and DelFatti. Stock varies, but they are great people--give them a call.

    For practically no wait time, try Comp Tac. I love their M Tac model. UBG has a fairly quick turn around too for a quality custom holster. As for ready to buy now, there are some good suggestions in the above posts. Ebay is also a good source for Galco and G&G and others.

    I don't think Rosen is 6 months. Last I ordered they were at 2 months. Lightning arms is awesome and if you get lucky, they might have what you want.

    I've had good luck on ebay buying new Galco and Don Hume holsters, most sell for 50% off MSRP. The bags and printed material were a bit faded, but the holsters were brand new. There are a lot of gun stores going out of business and selling off their entire stock.
