    one year ago Saturday...Feb 28th 2008

    I ordered my Brigade Gunleather M-11, was told 16 to 18 weeks lead time when I ordered it. Was told 2 or 3 more weeks!... in September...Guess what?

    At least they haven't billed my credit card...

    I sure wish it would hurry up and get here. I hate to buy another holster, knowing that one is coming, some day!

    Maybe it's just me but If I gotta wait over a year for an order ,I would cancel It cause It's just not worth It to me

    +1.
    They must be one heck of a holster. (They look awesome!)
    Their website (at least now) says 12-13 month lead time!
    Wow!
    I think they need to hire some more peoples.
    But good help is hard to find.
    Wish I had 1/10th that backlog.

    The thought crossed my mind several times...
    I think it will be worth it, when and if it ever shows up.
    I've waited this long...I reckon I'll stick it out.

    If they had charged my credit card when I first ordered it, I would be livid right now...But since I have nothing invested yet....I'll keep on waiting.

    Either way I would have canceled, there are enough great holster makers out there. I would have given them some time if they were in contact with you but enough is enough after 1 month beyond the stated time when ordering and I'm taking my business elsewhere.

    Some things are worth waiting for. A custom holster is something you just have to accept waiting for, but 1 year is far longer than I'm willing to wait. I gave up after 8 months on one that was supposed to arrive in 12 weeks. This drove me to discover Comptac, and I had an their Mtac in less than 1 week. It is my favorite holster. Their wait time might be a bit longer now, but certainly NOT 1 year and their communication during the process is excellent. I own several other holster from them now too.
