    So i was googling around for a nice Kydex OWB holster that will fit my Glock 22 w/ Streamlight TLR-2 holster. Found only like 6 people that make good ones.

    Decided to go with the Bravo Concealment system. Wasnt too badly priced at $76 with shipping so i ordered it.

    AND THEN!!!!!!!. AFTER ordering it i went to their home page to tinker around and see what kind of mag carriers they can make and my heart sank :( Apparently google lead me to the "buy holsters" page and not the home page because....

    33-40 day turn around time! AHHHHHHHH!.

    sooooo now i wait.........and wait.........its day one.......im still waiting......with some depression connected.

    I could. However everyone else had a longer turn around time 58-70 days. So any way i go im screwed haha Not to mention it would take a week or two to get the money back.........i wanted a holster NOW :p looks like im going to be picking up a serpa tomorrow and just not EDCing my streamlight until my holster arrives. From the reviews i've read this thing puts raven systems to shame so...........they better be right! haha ill post a review on it once it shows up next month :) Seeing as there are no reviews on here for this system :) Just need to occupy myself for 48 days or so.........hopefully less.

    Should have hit up edc tactical, used to be casino customs, in the classifieds. About a week or so on time and endless configuration for assorted combos. I have used Raven and other custom holsters and honestly wont do it again. The guys at edc will take care of ya.

    Ill probably look into them for my G20 rig. Non lighted. I dont own any kydex rigs. But im gettin the bug.

    I liked the fact that bravo let me set up the holster how i wanted, cant, color, fit, sweat guard, light setup, Attachment options all without charging a single extra penny *unless i wanted Desert coyote, or 0.6 thickness which was an extra $6* But hey....i may get it sooner :-D

    But i dont think ill be buying anything with a massive turn around time again. Im like a child. i want my toys NOW haha :p

    I am pretty sure that Raven Concealment Systems another company known for their long waits has created a quick ship list, and I believe that the GLOCK holster are on it. I am not sure about the light compatible ones, but I know the regular ones are.

    Another option would be Zero Concealment Systems (formerly Hideous Holsters). I order one for my Beretta a couple of weeks back and they said it should ship by 08/15 at the latest.

    If you think that's bad you should try ordering a Milt Sparks. You won't get it until some time in 2013.

    Good god, you weren't kidding!

    "Are your knives available for immediate shipment?

    Unfortunately, we do not have knives available from stock. Demand is generally so great for all models that we normally have a backlog of years. Currently, we are scheduling knife deliveries for January 2017. Randall order limit is one knife every three months per household"

    UPDATE!!!!

    so i called bravo to cancel my order, siting that the turn around time was WAY too long, and i was unware of this when i ordered it. Noone answered but i left a voicemail.

    About 20 minutes later i recieved a call from the Owner. Who asked what i was using to carry my 22 w/streamlight right now, i told him i wasnt carrying the light due to no holster.

    He then looked at my order and said "well its a simple light bearing holster, screw it, ill start making it now , have it done by sunday, mail it monday and youll have it thursday, Our wait times are usually on large multiple piece orders, but yours is simple and i would like to keep a customer rather than lose one, so be waiting thursday. im getting the materials out as we speak"!!!!!!!!!!!!

    now if i have any example of amazing customer service!..........this is it!. 40 some odd wait time cut down to 6 or so?...........im very pleased!

    The serpa holster is regarded "dangerous" by some because one guy in whoknowswheresville shot himself in the leg while removing his weapon from the rig itself.

    The way i see it, much like any holster, you need to train a LOT with it before you put it into use.

    The way the serpa SHOULD work is when you press the lever to unlock the weapon, your finger should align perfectly with the frame rail, thus keeping your finger away from the trigger.

    The guy who shot himself did not do this, he pressed the button and hooked his finger sot hat when he drew the weapon, his finger entered the trigger guard, and fired the weapon.

    This as far as i know has only happened once , with a man who was attempting very fast drawing techniques and did not watch his finger placement.

    However i can not stress enough, that if you purchase this holster, dryfire train with it until you know it very well. Then start carrying it once you are confident with the holster.

    You mean the guy on YouTube? Didn't he do a follow-up stating that he had been training with a completely different weapon and holster and that it was basically his fault? If that's the only complaint, I think I'm ok getting one.

    That would be him! haha he shot himself with a 1911, in a serpa, where he had been training with i believe a bianchi and a glock.

    I own a few of them for various guns and i find them to be great. They take a bit getting used to. Like you have to depress the button BEFORE you pull the gun. Pulling then pressing or pull/press at the same time will cause the gun to not come out, so a bit of training is required but..........nothing too serious.

    Oh, yea. He was used to the thumb break action of the glock holster and swept the safety off. Thanks for the info. I mostly want it for when I don't need it to be iwb.

    Its good for winter/woods carry. And the #1 holster for OC.

    It doesnt sit too too close to the body, maybe an inch off, which makes it hard to conceal without a larget cover garment.
