I ordered a holster over 2 months ago also and sent them an email on their website checking on the status of my order and have yet to get a response, been about a month. We might just be out of luck!

They seem to be responding on Facebook. I luckily got my stuff before the price increase and massive back order list.

I ordered one in FDE, waited for the build cycle and after 30 days got an email saying it was not in stock and a full refund. I ordered a Raven from Malabar and it took about 10 weeks to get it.

Raven is currently at 18-20 weeks for a wait time. Im on week 19.... Check out Secret City Weaponeers or Personal Security Systems.

I'm on week three of a 35 day wait from Cane and Derby. Ian over there provides great customer service and really wants to answer every question I have. Can't wait to get their gear.

Will do and thanks for the heads up. I've always liked Bladetech's products, my Raven is my second one, nice gear, but they need to cut the wait down.

I've got a brand new Boatman holster for an M&P9 with an X300 attached. I know that isn't the combo you use but let me know if you'd like it.

Personal Security shows less than 45 day wait or your shipping is free.

Check out Cane and Derby. They make good stuff and don't charge you until your order is shipped.Customer Service/Tech support is excellent!

I know people that ordered Boatman in March and still haven't received them. I think they may have cancelled them a week or two ago. Just make your own it's not that hard to do.

When I saw them first on here I thought, "oh kick ***!!!" but when they are adamant that this is not thier main job nor source of income I held back. Full time real jobs doesnt make much time time to build your product especially in thier job. I think they are LEO. So work time, family time and PT time, what time does that really leave to build your product?
No bashing them at all as they look like kick *** holsters but I'm not one to wait several months on something that isnt a focus.

I made these the other day:

I know they aren't perfect but they work! Retention is awesome and they are made out of 3/32" (.093) Kydex.

Ordered mine in May, received an order update last week and two days later had the holster in hand. To be honest I forgot I even ordered it.

I paid them nearly $80 for 2 magazine holsters. Only 1 was sent and it was poorly made. I was promised 2 that fit the magazines snug. I never heard back and its been over a year. Anyone else in this situation? Why would two LEO's take peoples money and not deliver a product or a return of money?

Sucks to hear this, they were supposed to sign on as vendors here but stopped responding or posting. I don't have any more details than what was on their ads to help with.

Google "Boatman Combat" and call the phone number that comes up. Not sure if it is still valid, but that's what I would do.
