Next Time I Order A Custom Holster...

...I am going to make sure the holster maker charges me for it at the time I place the order and not at the time he starts working on it. A few days ago, I got an email from Brigade GunLeather telling me that, a holster I ordered back in March of this year, is finally being manufactured. Now, don't get me wrong when I say it is finally being made, I am not at all upset about how long it took; I expected it to be at least 4 to 6 months or so before they got around to putting it together, I just mean they are doing it at last!  Yes, I am saying it was a long wait but what the heck.

Brigade GunLeather M1-Hoplon
The only thing bad about it having been such a long time before production began is that I was  not charged when I first ordered it and had the money. Instead, they only charged my credit card now that they have started working on it. The thing is I do not have the money set aside right now. Well, I have the money but not to spend on a holster since I just quit the job that was earning me my good time money and since heating oil season just began and because my biannual home owners' insurance will soon be due. Oh well, it will get paid because I will cut back somewhere else. Next time though, when I order something and have the money at the time I order it, that is when I will insist they charge my card for it.

I am eagerly awaiting receiving the finished product, I can say that without a doubt. I got the email on October 28th and they say it will be about 4 weeks until it is shipped. The holster is the Brigade GunLeather M1-Hoplon. It should look just like the one in the photo but will also be suede lined. It should carry my Remington R1-1911 nicely.

All the best,
