Alien Gear and Old Faithful

I received and email today saying Alien Gear and Old Faithful Holsters are merging. Both make similar hybrid holsters as well as other concealment types.
It should be interesting to see what they can do with joint development teams.

The two companies holsters look similar but old faithful holsters are a lot more expensive. I wonder if Alien gear will be raising their prices?

Got the same email. From what people here have said, hopefully their CS and turnaround time will improve.

I just called their phone number {479-226-3082} and a person answered the phone, so that's already better service than Alien has...

I just said that I heard they were merging with Alien and wanted to see if they actually had a live person answering the phones...

The email basically said they would remain their own companies, keeping production and distribution separate. Funds and possibly R&D seem to be the point of the merger.
