"Works well with customers."
Read a few post here and there about how someone was not happy with whoever they'd ordered custom holster from. Sometimes, the complaint was valid, sometimes not.
I've got a Laredo Defender and belt on order from Kevin at K&D Holsters. I knew when I placed the order that he has, as stated on his web site, a 6 to 8 week lead time before a holster can be completed and sent out.
I probably set myself back a week or so, as I first ordered the holster, then went back and included a belt, then had doubts about the color I choose. After an email or two had been exchanged, I called Kevin and we talked about it, he was very helpful in helping me finally come to a decision.
Today, I got a phone call from Kevin, telling my that my holster and belt should show up on my door step, this Friday. Taking everything above into consideration, I'd say that falls pretty much within the time frame originally given. Even had it taken a week or two longer, the time frame he gave was offered as a ballpark figure, not a guaranteed shipping date. So, I'd say he made good on it.
THIS is what sets a good business apart from a not-so-good one! He never made any promise that he could not in good faith have kept, he worked with me in the decision-making process, and he responded to my inquiries along the way. When the job was done, he took it upon himself to call me, and let me know when to expect it.
When my belt and holster get here, I'll be posting some pictures, as I'm certain it will be something to brag about! :biggrin2:
If whoever you go to for your holster doesn't do business like K&D does, then maybe you should give Kevin a try. He'll not let you down.
