Anyone order recently? They have what I need instock. The webs have some delivery storys from a while back (perhaps due to owner illness) but nothing recent.

Nope, not recently. I had one experience with them, back in ~2009. It was awful. Took about 6 months for my "in stock" holster and belt combo to arrive. Never again.

Anybody who does that doesn't get my business. A few years ago a well-known gunsmith - who, when I lived in the area, I personally met with - did that to me. Somebody else got the job.

FWIW, they usually have a decent sized booth at several of the Carolina gun shows. My experience with them back in the 2005-ish timeframe left me wanting to do business with someone else, but maybe that's because I'm a lefty and they never wanted to deal with anything other than "stock RH items".

These days, if I'm buying leather, my money goes to Mitch Rosen. Good CS and pretty speedy turnaround on Express Line items.

YMMV

Been some time since I ordered from them but, Tucker Gunleather is top notch and Rob is a great guy to work with. The product is also A1.

Had a nightmare with them as well.
Charge comes in as an auto parts store, so I contested it. Some broad calls me several weeks later with an attitude like it was my fault I didn't know what the charge was for.

Never again.

While I found quite a few good reviews on Wild Bill's Fusion Paddle ... I wish that I had seen this thread before ordering.

Ordered for a SIG P225A1. Going on 16 weeks for a holster that would take 8-10 weeks. I would understand if they were swamped from the holidays or illness ... but after emailing, calling and even sending a message via their Facebook I have not heard from them.

Will post if/when I receive the holster or if I hear from them.

Just got off the phone with a very nice lady at Wild Bill's. She apologized for the delay and is getting my Fusion Paddle out to me next week!

I've never dealt with the vendor but he has some nice looking leather.

However, if you Google his name there appears to be a few complaints going back a few years. To many good leather makers just can't keep up with demand and/or close up shop.

When it doesn't show up next week, and you call back, she'll apologize for the delay and tell you she'll "get it out to you next week".

Fourteen years ago when I last dealt with him, I had a good experience. In fact I still use two of his holsters, very good work.

Was told that the delay was caused by dying my holster the wrong color. Was supposed to ship today. Does not look like it went out today as I was told.

Will be ordering a GS2 from Grizzle tomorrow. Odds are that it may come before the Wild Bill Fusion Paddle gets here.

Live and learn.

At 20 weeks and still no holster. Did not ship on Friday as I was told it would.

Ordered a DeSantis from Midway and picked up a Cold Steel San Mai 3 Trail Master for only $270. Such an impulse buy ... Zero need for a beast blade like that.

Me either! Like I said, I wish I had seen this thread before I ordered OR had seen more negative reviews. I typically over-think and over-research everything ... not here. Like Peter Green once sang, "Oh well".
