We’ve Shortened Our Lead Time!

Posted by Rob Longenecker on June 13th, 2006

It used to be that you could count on us to ship your IWB’s within 4 weeks. Almost all of you were happy to wait because Tucker always delivers on his quality workmanship, custom-made to your satisfaction.

Well, I pay attention to your comments on the gun forums and email, and it’s clear there’s something missing – a shorter wait for your holsters.  Some of you want high-end stuff like Tucker’s with a shorter time waitin’ on the mail man. 

Tucker and I were talkin’ and I told him it was time to see what we could do to shorten our lead time. I asked him if there was anything we could do.  He asked me, “Well, are people happy with the quality, even if they have to wait?”

I said, “Sure they are. I get emails and phone calls braggin’ on how much they like ‘em.” 

Then I hesitated, and finally said, “Well, the only thing more folks say they want, is they want their holsters quicker.”

Tucker didn’t say much. Just “Huh.” And then walked off, muttering something about calling me in a few days.

“Here’s what we’re gonna to do,” Tucker began, a couple of days later. “We’re going to get them their holsters quicker. That’s what they want, then that’s what they’ll get. Tell ‘em, Rob. 3 weeks from now on. No more of this 4 weeks crap.”

So there you have it folks, Tucker’s has set the shop up to keep the craftsmanship at the same elite level, only now you’re going to get them faster.

3 weeks from receipt of order and your IWB holsters (inside the waistband) will be in your hands. .

Christmas came early this year. Pass it along.
