Tucker Gun Leather - Houston, TX - NO WAY

airmecher1airmecher1 New MemberPosts: 2 New Member
I ordered a custom holster for a Kimber 1911 on February 7th, 2016 and paid for it at that time. I was told 3 months wait time up front. Fair enough. The first week of June I contacted them with a question of where my order was and they failed to answer. One week later I asked again and was told it would be 3 weeks to ship, making it on or about 7/9/16 as the ship date. At no time have they ever initiated contact to inform me of any problems. They have only answered, feebly, when I push it that they are behind. No kidding. $250.00 bucks for a custom holster, 3 month wait that has turned into what is now 23 weeks. Monday July 11th, 2016 will find me on the phone cancelling the order and demanding my money back. I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this but BUYER BEWARE.

Do not patronize:

Tucker Gun Leather
7027 Concho St. STE 100
Houston, Texas 77074

Run, as fast as you can from them. I have invoices, e-mails and dates to prove what I am saying. Disgruntled customer, yes. But with facts, not blubbering accusations that are exaggerated. :angry::angry:

    Dude, chill. If you need that holster for an event or some such and waited until February to order it then you are just dumb. If you are just throwing a temper tantrum, then we just don't care.

    Waiting for custom stuff is frustrating. Especially when the response to inquiries is not there. But custom stuff is custom for a reason. And if this guy is knocking them out one at a time, I can imaging gauging the lead time would be difficult.

    His stuff looks nice and the reviews are good. Get something to tide you over if you must, but sit back and wait. And be pleasantly surprised when you do get it.

    That's my porcelain wisdom for the day!

    To all who criticize me, and especially JasonMPD:

    In case your reading skills are deficient for some reason I have been a member here for quite some time. I just haven't posted anything. To jump on me for a LEGITIMATE complaint, that I have brought to the attention of the ownership of said leather goods maker, multiple times, and gotten nothing but feeble answers only when I prodded them, is pathetic. I expected better from you folks. I was told 3 months, up front and accepted it. I gave them ANOTHER 3 months beyond that. To say "I should just shut up and accept poor service because it is custom is ridiculous. I let THEM set the timetable. TWICE. And was let down both times.

    In my job I deal with customers and timetables for scheduling their aircraft repairs and modifications. And I call or e-mail updates and problems that might, or might not, effect delivery times. Is it so much to ask of a custom maker of a multiple man shop? I think not. A simple e-mail that told me that they are running way behind and the delivery date will be pushed back to whenever, would have assuaged my concerns and gone a long way to my accepting the length of time it is taking.

    Like I said, I expected better from fellow gun owners. Now I know that a lot of people here are just pukes with big mouths and fat fingers that are not connected to any brain tissue.

    Good day.

    You don't math so much well. Do you? It has only just been five months, not the six you are claiming. Stuff happens, clearly the dude is busy making holsters not spending all day answering whine bag emails.

    That or he took your money and ran. I bet he is just stringing you along from his beach chair in the Bahamas.

    Why would you expect better of us? Have we (as a group, or even singly) interacted in any way, shape or fashion before this? IOW, who are you to expect anything from anybody here, other than exactly what you got? You have a grand total of two posts here, Mr. Longtime member...the first post to bitch about something, the second to call us names. You want sympathy? We're fresh out. There might be some on backorder, but you know how delivery times go...

    In the future, maybe try building a little bit of a relationship before looking for hugs and attaboys before tearing somebody or something down. Or don't, and continue being a jackass.


    Edited to add: I might just look into this place and see if they have a 1911 holster they'll be wanting to unload, cheap! :devil:

    Bit harsh, say what?

    You have been a member here since 2014 and have not picked up on the fact that most of us have no brain tissue at all?

    Somewhat slow of you , me thinks.

    Nope, business is, as they say, booming! We Curmudgeonites tend to be a tad short on the light-off, though....and I'm ALWAYS looking for a deal!

    Welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy your time here. Post pictures when you get your holster, so we will know if it's worth the wait.

    Airmech,
    I do believe you have a legitimate grip. Something, custom or not should not take nearly twice as long as promised without some explanation to the customer. The poor response to repeated inquiry only adds to your disenchantment with this vendor.
    That being said, you came about this the wrong way. Had you come here and asked if anyone had experience with this company, good or bad and explained your concerns. Or asked if anyone had ever purchased custom leather and what sort of turn around time was customary, I'm sure the responses would have been much different.
    I hope you are able to get this resolved to your satisfaction and will follow up with a review of this product.

    For what it's worth, I discovered that the cheap, unbranded $5 or $10 black nylon holsters sold at gun shows work as well as any. And they last. I have a few that are over 20 years old and don't look a day of it. I own just one leather holster, a Hunter bought ages ago for my Colt New Service Target. It's so old it must have been crafted from dinosaur skin but it still looks good. Bottom line - I would never, ever, pay serious money for anything as inconsequential as a holster. Yeah, I know, some holsters have retention this or that, are adjustable one way or the other, blah-blah-blah, who cares? I don't. The little Velcro strap they all come with is retention enough for me, and while a cheapie may be a little bit 'slower' than a megabuck holster, no operational differences warrant or justify the higher cost.

    Sure...but you gotta have a BBQ holster to holster that BBQ gun.

    I read fine.

    I read your 2014 join date with now, what? 2 posts?

    Your a fly-by-night internet poster with 10 or 15 forum memberships. Ya joined here in 2014, we didn't fit your nature, you moved on. You found us again when you had some bitching to do.

    I could care less if my opinion about you is correct or way off base. Doesn't matter to me. I've been a member of this forum, the one before it, and the one before that. Since 2002-ish.

    Get outta here with your "bleh bleh I've been a member for 2 years, bleh blah bleh"

    I used to think similar and used Uncle Mike's holsters, but, when I got to having a serious need for wearing a holster, I found that the plastic belt loops broke at the worst possible time.

    Helps; but, all you need is one that will not drop the gun at the BBQ and get the gun damaged.

    I'd vote for the BBQ holster.
