It sure does take a while to get them, but well worth it IMHO. I really like both of mine.

I'm getting a little disillusioned with this Alabama Holster deal. I ordered it on 8/8. Got an email saying it was shipped on 11/1 and should be delivered on 11/4.

This is the tracking info from the USPS:
November 10, 2017 00:55 SPRINGFIELD MO DISTRIBUTION CENTER DEPARTED USPS REGIONAL FACILITY
November 10, 2017 00:11 SPRINGFIELD MO DISTRIBUTION CENTER ARRIVED AT USPS REGIONAL FACILITY
November 9, 2017 17:05 CARTHAGE,MO,64836 ARRIVED AT USPS FACILITY
November 9, 2017 06:28 CARTHAGE,MO,64836 ARRIVED AT POST OFFICE
November 8, 2017 09:22 On its way to MERIDEN,KS,66512 IN TRANSIT TO DESTINATION
November 7, 2017 23:22 KANSAS CITY KS NETWORK DISTRIBUTION CENTER DEPARTED USPS REGIONAL DESTINATION FACILITY
November 7, 2017 23:18 KANSAS CITY KS NETWORK DISTRIBUTION CENTER ARRIVED AT USPS REGIONAL DESTINATION FACILITY
November 7, 2017 09:00 On its way to MERIDEN,KS,66512 IN TRANSIT TO DESTINATION
November 6, 2017 09:00 On its way to MERIDEN,KS,66512 IN TRANSIT TO DESTINATION

November 5, 2017 09:40 On its way to MERIDEN,KS,66512 IN TRANSIT TO DESTINATION
November 4, 2017 09:40 On its way to MERIDEN,KS,66512 IN TRANSIT TO DESTINATION
November 3, 2017 21:10 MOBILE AL DISTRIBUTION CENTER ANNEX ARRIVED AT USPS REGIONAL ORIGIN FACILITY
November 3, 2017 16:18 SILVERHILL,AL,36576 DEPARTED POST OFFICE
November 3, 2017 15:52 SILVERHILL,AL,36576 USPS IN POSSESSION OF ITEM
November 1, 2017 PRE-SHIPMENT INFO SENT TO USPS, USPS AWAITING ITEM

I'm a little confused. If you know anything about geography, this route is really screwed up. It eventually got to Kansas City and was supposed to be enroute to my town which is almost straight west from KC about one hour. Instead it went to Carthage, MO next. That is a 2 hour drive South of KC. Then it headed to Springfield, MO That's about an hour back North towards KC. Early this morning it departed from Springfield. I expect it to go to Iowa next.

If it shows up down here I will intercept that traveling holster and break the thing in for you, rman.

Sounds good Kansas. Someone might as well get some use out of it. Actually, I'm guessing it's probably on it's way to Des Moines by now.

Well Teddybear, it took 12 weeks, but I finally got the Alabama Holster. I'm not sure it hides any better than my old Di Santis. The great thing about it though, is that it's hard Kydex and pressure in the wrong place doesn't release the magazine on my P238. That was a problem that I had with the leather Di Santis. I like it!

Holy Crap that took a long time. I'm glad you like it.

If the Postal Service hadn't lost track of it, it probably only would have taken 11 weeks.

It's working great Teddybear. The only bad thing about it is, I forget I have it in my pocket. There are still a few places that I can't take a gun - courthouse and schools. Fortunately, I don't visit either of those places often.
