    I bought a Kydex pocket holster for my Kel-Tec P-3AT with ArmaLaser from them about two years ago. My experience with them was very good (great price and short delivery time), and the holster itself has been excellent.

    Since then I have read of both good and bad experiences with them on various forums. (Mostly long delivery times.)

    Personally, if were to order another holster from them I would talk to them on the phone to place the order and to get a delivery date. I would not order it on-line as I did before.

    Hope this helps,

    That helps alot. I ordered a holster from them April 22 and was told they have a 6-8 week wait time, and have yet to recieve it. I was just wondering if the wait time is a little longer than posted. O well I'll just keep up the wait!!

    Had a pocket holster for my P3AT from them. The tab above the slide that was to retain the holster in the pocket eventually tore off (it is very thin Kydex, making for a very thin holster, which was a plus-didn't break up the pistol's outline as well as it could which is a minus).

    Since I have others for the P3AT, and I didn't see any good use for it without the tab (which I'd have had to cut/smooth some more), I recently threw it out. But it was certainly inexpensive, and I got quite a bit of use out of it. I could go either way with them.

    I had/have one for my Kel-tec P-32. I really liked the holster. It slipped right in my jeans pocket and the gun could be drawn pretty quickly.
    If you just carried it normally it wouldn't be a problem but mine could not hold up to me working under the truck and other activities, and the thin kydex cracked twice.
    I epoxied it back together the first time it cracked and threw it in a drawer the second time and bought a Nemisis. It is flexible and won't break.

    Sounds more like molded plastic than true kydex.
