    How come

    Almost every holster site I find that has a appealing holster has some sort of fine print that ruines the whole thing?
    I was looking at this holster
    http://www.haugenhandgunleather.com/...UCT_ID=Model01
    and found this on his site

    Should your holster become worn, loose, defective, or ill-fitting at any time, cease use immediately. Haugen Handgun Leather accepts no responsibility or liability for accident or death due to their product. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of the product is with the buyer. Should the product proved defective following its purchase, the buyer and not the manufacturer or retailer assumes the entire risk for any personal injury or death claims. Because leather is a natural product, Haugen Handgun Leather makes no warranties either written or expressed on their products and the entire risk of all necessary servicing or repair is the responsibility of the consumer.

    Now is this a common thing? Do our holster makers here do business in such a way or do they care if the holster falls apart after 4 months of use? (I alrerady know the answer, just in a hurry to get a holster, and everyone on here has a wait of 8 weeks or more)

    that is a " boilerplate" liability disclamer that the holster makers have been basicly forced into by idiots abusing / modifying holsters and injuring themselves any reputable holster maker will stand behind the product as long as it is properly cared for by the end user

    Bruce - these days in our <bletch> litigious society - it seems almost anyone can sue anyone else - if they have a mind to. Thus disclaimers such as we see are all but mandatory for butt coverage!!

    I wonder yet if we will see on a pack of envelopes (licky type) a small print-disclaimer - ''Careless licking can cause paper cuts to lips - we cannot accept liability for blood loss due to consumer's useage of our product''

    Many companies are going to that kind of language, as RR said. It's an attempt at a liability disclaimer. For example, Ed Brown has no written warranty on his 1911s, and he says that he basically can't and comply with all the laws... but he says that he cares for his customers. Ed builds great guns and will take care of problems, but he can't say that in writing.
    I have no doubt that if I had a problem with a holster from Tony, Gary, Lou, etc... the problem would be resolved regardless of the lack of a written warranty.

    I figured as much, I am just starting to get a little anxious to carry this darn thing.

    It is for the same reason that Kimber has to tell you not to carry a pistol with a round in the chamber - to keep the lawyers at bay.

    Easy solution; get a holster from Gary Brommelund. He warrants his products for your lifetime, hard to beat that deal.

    I am sure that his holsters are first rate, and the disclaimer is for legal reasons. However, since it is there, I would not buy a holster from him. I want the maker to warrant it such as so many others do including Gary and Kevin. If it ain't satisfactory send it back. Gosh, even Walmart and Kmart have such a warranty.

    I would have to agree with a couple of you. The lawyers will sue anyone for any reason. But a manufacturer needs to stand behind his product.

    My favorite disclaimer of all, came on the electrical cord of my iron, it reads: "Don't iron clothes while wearing"

    You know why its been put there too....
