    Got my Alessi holsters!

    I finally got my Alessi order in today, that I placed in October of 2007 with Lou! Tom and crew up at the current Alessi company are really nice guys and easy to deal with. The holsters are really nicely made and great looking.

    I got a black CQC/S with black shark for a Sig P220 and another identical holster for a S&W 4566. There was also a third holster for a Commander, but there's a slight issue with it, so I'll wait until I get it straightened out with Tom then post pictures of it. Here's the first two:

    CQC/S for Sig P220


    CQC/S for S&W 4566

    Those are a couple very nice holsters. Good to hear they are doing right by the Alessi name. I really want a new CQC/S and the shark looks awesome.

    SavageDet, by your comment, I'm guessing you don't know the Alessi story. The wait was more than understandable.

    Like was said above, sounds like you don't know the story. Do some looking around about Lou Alessi because he was known as one of the best holster makers ever to walk the earth. He was also known by most everyone I've read to be an even nicer guy in person and on the phone. I never had the pleasure to meet nor talk to him in person but I have to admit even posthumously that I respect the man and his products.

    Thanks. Yeah, I was worried when the new crew started up that they might not offer exotics, just to keep things simple at first. But they had no problem fulfilling my original order with Lou, even honoring the deposit I had given Lou, and were very helpful and easy to work with. There was just a slight hiccup with the order, with one of the holsters, and I'm waiting to hear from Tom to see what we'll do about it.

    I'll tell you something else, they have more than just shark. I hope I'm not speaking out of turn or spilling any beans that I shouldn't but if you're interested in something like that, give Tom a call. You should see the other two holsters I've got!

    Very nice holsters! Congrats. I am glad that the new people decided to honor Alessi’s memory by continue making great holsters.

    Obviously you do not know what happened. Go to their website, Alessi Gun Holsters - Lou Alessi, and then you will find out why the delay.
