    K&D Came Through!

    My new K&D holsters finally came in today.

    Actually there's a couple more still coming that weren't quite ready and I should have them soon, but Kevin sent the first two now.

    The first is an Eagle Defender with beavertail trim for my Colt Commander



    and the second is a Laredo Defender with alligator for my Sig P220



    The holsters are beautifully made and fit like a glove. They're also very thin and light, yet very firm. Just what I expected from a master craftsman.

    Thanks Kevin, I can't wait to see the rest!

    Nice leather. Beavertail is a leather I have thought about using. My next holster will be for my Norinco 1911 after the customizing is complete, and I plan to have some exotic on it. Congrats on some really fine leather.

    Today is the 15 week point on my Dakota Defender for an XD .40SC that I don't even own yet! (Will be changing that situation today).

    That's the smart way to go. I'm doing the same thing myself. When I decided that my next gun was going to be an M&P 45 I ordered a holster for it right away, and I'm in the process of ordering another. It'll probably be another month or two before I get the gun and hopefully the holsters will arrive about the same time.

    Did you ask him to cut down the leather on the snaps a bit? It looks like they're smaller (better) than the ones pictured on his website.

    Actually, I didn't ask him to do it, but I noticed it and think it's a good idea also. I assumed that it's a change he's made in the model since I do recall others mentioning that their snaps stuck out some.

    Very fine leather there N-frame Smith. Kevins work just gets better and better. I need to turn in an order for my wife's Taurus 38. I have had 2 of his holsters for close to a year now and I love his work. Kevin is a great guy also.

    Definately like the lower profile snap flaps...mine stick out and grab the cover garment something aweful.. Because of that it is not getting much use... Yes, those are snapped... otherwise it is a beautiful holster... Thinking of trimming them down to make it more user friendly ... Kevin hit another home run as your holster is simply beautiful

    unleashed,

    When did you place your order. This coming Saturday marks the 16 week point for me, and he hasn't charged my card yet. I can figure out about how much longer I have to wait based on when you placed your order.

    Thanks,

    Mike
