    Just to let everyone know......
    I have several Alabama Holsters and have recommmended them to several people and up until lately haven't had a problem. I feel they are one of the finest made. How ever recenty there service is terrible. Sure, they say on their web page they are hiring more people and such, but don't take my money till the product is made. I ordered one on October 8 of last year (2012), it is now almost 90 days and I haven't received the holster yet. They charged my credit card back in November. If I ever get this holster it will be the last I ever order from them. I realize they may be a little behind......but don't set on my money for over 60 days. I have given my business now to rdrholsters. Check them out. Fantastic company, fast service and they make a superior product . Maybe Alabama Holsters ought to be making holsters rather sponsering shooting teams.

    I agree, is not right to charge the credit card until product is in the mail.

    I think it's tough for small biz when they get slammed with orders and don't have the infrastructure to support it. One idea I have seen is a company will only take as many orders as they can handle for the day/week and then shut down their order page.

    But that sometimes pisses people off because they can't seem to get an order placed and go somewhere else. It's a fine line. Not defending the long wait times...I waited for 8 weeks for a holster from a different company, and was far from happy about it...but I understand.

    Maybe such new companies should build up large stock of such good holsters and then advertise. :cool:

    Mutually exclusive events.

    The "sponsorship" is a t shirt and a thank you and has no bearing on their holster production.

    I didn't mean that they where out sponsoring and not building holsters.
    What I meant to imply, was that if you are going to have that type of exposer and advertising, you may ought to be prepared for the demand.
    I am a small business owner myself....if I can't take care of my customers in a orderly and timely matter...I loose customers, just as they may do.:faint:

    Mine took 3 months+ and that was like two years ago so this is nothing new. Great holster though, if you can wait.
