Looking for a Solo iwb is hard! 2 returned holsters and then today happened.

2 days ago I e-mailed alien holsters asking if their Solo holster was with a Solo frame or if they are just a "like model". No response in 2 days via e-mail.

Today I called Alien and customer service was on a union break I guess. They didn't pick up, so I left a voice message. No call back. Im done with them.

I know DeSantis makes a Solo holster. I called DeSantis to place a order. A lady picked up, told her I was looking to buy the hybrid holster for the Solo. She was like let me see what we have, she asked IWB? I said the hybrid, she got short and said, you'll have to stop saying that it throws me off. You mean Kydex with the leather piece? I said yes, we don't make one for the Solo. I hung on her.

Called Midway and it's already in the mail.

It's no wonder this country has the fallen from such greatness. People are lazy and could give 2 ***** about anything. Even a easy job like Customer service over the phone not face to face, is non existence in this country.

Done with my rambling, sorry had to vent.

Venting is ok, but only if you post a pic or a link so we can see what it is you ordered.

Looks like a very detailed fit. Should be quite secure.

Interesting report on Alien Gear. They are a forum supporter. I've heard that they are months behind on orders.

If they're that busy, God bless them. I tried to support a supporting member but didn't it work out

They are up to their eyeballs. I sent them an email asking a question and it took like two weeks to get an answer. But, at least I got an answer. I think holster delivery is 4 to 6 weeks. I have one, and I like it, but I'm not that wild about IWB.

That's all anyone could ask. Glad you found something you like and don't have to wait long for it.

4 to 6 weeks is better then the inter web rumors, but still seems like to long.

Unless you're ordering an assembly line made holster most companies take 4-6 weeks to make up and deliver your holster. My Crossbreed took 5 weeks, my DeSantis took 1 week. Custom made holsters and belts are another story, most shops have a 6 month or longer waiting list. I'm waiting for a holster and belt from Brigade Gun leather that I ordered last October. When I say custom I mean you chose everything down to the color of thread used for the stitching.

Oldsoul, just curious, Alien holsters have a sub forum here on Kimber Talk, have you tried posting something in there? I know you already placed an order with another company but it couldn't hurt anything to make them aware of the order you tried to place and the lack of service you received.

For what it's worth, we've been very happy with Crossbreed holsters & customer service.

In fact I just called them this morning to confirm the holsters they'll be building soon for my Super Carry Pro will also fit my new Tactical Ultra. It only took a couple of minutes to navigate the 'phone tree' & talk to a very friendly live person.

As far as wait times - right now they're running about 3 weeks out. They have at times been known to be 2-3 months out.

I am a big fan of firearmholster.com. Gavin is the owner and has great customer service. Give them a try.

I ordered an Alien holster 3 weeks ago and called them plus emailed them last week.
No response as of today so I just cancelled my order.
I understand a busy company but if you can't reply to your customer base, then that is a company I dont want to give my hard earned money to...

I hope that everyone having a problem with Alien holster is posting about it in their sub forum.

I've been ordering from Foxx Holsters lately. Week or less I'm wearing it. Good I like all 3 I've bought so far. And own 3 of their "super slim" mag holders. Thinking about ordering a gun belt from them soon as well.

Yup, I carry Crossbreed with every pistol I carry. The comfort and fit cannot be beat.

This includes for the Solo....

The Eagle has landed!

Got my DeSantis Solo holster today. I couldn't be more happy with it!
The Solo goes right in and clicks in place.
Drawing is easy enough too. Comes with a Allen wrench to adjust the clips do you can carry your preferred way.
Finally!
