You asked for it!

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 19th April 2007

It’s finally available – you’ve been asking for it, but Tucker’s so busy he had to fit it into his schedule. It’s a combination angled mag pouch that holds a small Surefire light like the G2 and one magazine.

It’s up on the website now and available in all the current colors and styles of stamping.

A single version is also available for just the light.

What do you think?

The best I ever saw.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 15th April 2007

Bob Hoover (born 1922) is a former air show pilot and USAF Test Pilot. His personal trademark is a wide-brimmed straw hat and wide smile. While I was a Naval Aviator and going to air shows, I saw him perform in person several times. Of all the flight demonstrations I’ve seen, his is the most memorable. Incredible pilot.

Here’s a video that illustrates why Bob Hoover (grounded now) was the best of the best.

There are some other videos and articles about Bob if you do a search.

So Long, Skidboot.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 15th April 2007

This is a follow-up to my original Skidboot post.  

“Skidboot is at rest, the bell of time having made its inevitable toll. What a wonderful life of fourteen years he lived! Never has a last minute, second thought Christmas gift ever shone so brightly as Skidboot.

On Sunday evening, March 25, 2007, Skidboot was laid to rest beneath an oak tree on the ranch to which he contributed greatly in building.”

Belt Clips

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 14th April 2007

I had to raise the price on extra belt clips for Tucker’s IWB’s.

Recently, I began receiving numerous orders for extra kydex belt clips from customers who had never bought a Tucker holster. I found out that they were often Comp-tac C-Tac owners who had found out that I was selling clips at a much lower price than was Comp-tac.

Now, I’m selling at the same price as Comp-tac does. I want to offer extra clips to my customers but I don’t want to be in the belt clip business. Hope you understand.

BTW, for those who have questions on which belt clips to use, check this out.

Another 2 cents….

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 14th April 2007

Rob,

I wanted to add my two cents to your other letters praising your products/service.  In fifteen years of carrying a firearm (and more holsters – and money – than I care to think of) “The Answer” is bar none the most comfortable IWB holster I have EVER used! 

In over twelve years of law enforcement, there is very seldom a time that I go unarmed (on or off-duty) and have tried a number of concealment holsters from a lot of the popular manufacturers.  “The Answer” has been in my hands for about three weeks now and I am indescribably impressed with the workmanship, design, and comfort of this holster. 

The fit was exceptional, and once I figured out the “sweet” spot on my hip for the holster it went on for 8 hours the first day without even knowing it was there!  There was not a “break in” period that I have experienced with other holsters (either on the drawing aspect or the wearing aspect). 

My family and I just got back from vacation and I wore “The Answer” every day for 12-14 hours a day (walking around most of the time) without having to adjust the holster or think “when can I take this thing off” – IT IS COMFORTABLE! 

“The Answer” allows me to carry my full-size Glock with a shirt tucked in or out and minimizes printing to the point that my wife has commented a couple of times to me lately “I can’t believe you’re going out without a gun” or “did you forget your gun” – I hadn’t!  “The Answer” held the gun in such a way with a tucked in and lightly bloused shirt, that even when my wife was looking for it, my gun all but disappeared.

Your response to my original e-mail about some ordering questions seemed like it came as soon as I hit the “send” button, it didn’t take the usual “days” we have sadly come to expect in our great nation.  That, coupled with the fact that you kept me updated about the order progress truly shows that you gentlemen care about your product and the customers, and I do appreciate your dedication.

I was dubious about spending the money (“The Answer” and two belts), but after only a short time with the product(s) I am so impressed that it doesn’t seem appropriate to just call it a holster!  If anyone out there is thinking about ordering this holster – do it!  If you have the need for a concealed carry holster, I don’t think you can find a better product out there or nicer people to order it from.

Now I just have to decide which belt rig to buy……….

(Not that I need it, but they look so good – I want it!!!!!)

Take care, God bless, and PLEASE keep up the good work guys

Baggin’ groceries with a purpose.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 12th April 2007

I learned a lesson in customer service from a young bagger in a grocery store. My first thought was to share this short video with you. I received some nice messages about “Skidboot” so I thought you’d like this too.

Just click here to watch the video. It is related to a commercial site, but I’m not affiliated with it in any way and there’s no commercial.

David and Skidboot – Humble Texan with a very Special Dog

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 11th April 2007

I just had to share this with you. This video made my day and I’m very glad someone sent it to me. I’ll bet this one video you’ll want to share. Meet Skidboot.

One of the reasons I love living in Texas is I actually run into special, humble people like David frequently.

Worth the wait.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 9th April 2007

I’ve been concerned that our backlog has been growing and I’ve wondered if we might lose customers over it. Thank goodness Tucker’s work is still worth waiting for.

“I received my “Answer” for my 3″ 1911 last week, and had to comment. The 3 month wait for it and my bullhide belt/mag pouch was worth every minute. The craftsmanship and quality are top notch. But even more importantly, it WORKS!

I have tried several different IWB holster’s over the years, but never have I found one that was comfortable enough to wear for any length of time.

It only took 3 days or so of wearing the Answer for it to start to conform to my body and almost feel as if it is not even there. In fact, I fell asleep on the couch last night, and woke this morning to find I was still wearing it. Great stuff!!

It is now obvious to me why you are so backlogged on orders. People will support a company that supports them. The only negative I can come up with is I am now “chomping at the bit” to get my HF1 and Tucker belt even more than before. Can’t wait to see the craftsmanship involved in those.

Thanks for the great customer service, and thanks for the great quality.. As I am sure you are aware of, your prices are substantially higher than your competition’s. But that is only true if you look at initial purchase price only. I never do. I look at the biggest picture I can, and buy what I am going to be happiest with in the long run. In other words, you have a customer for life now.

Please thank Tucker for a job well done. And Rob, thank you for the service.”

One man – One holster at a time.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 1st April 2007

Tucker is known for the quality of his work and his insistance on the best materials, but he’s equally known for his decorative stamping. Border stamping is a favorite of many customers and most have never seen it done. Once you see handwork involved you’ll appreciate your holster even more.

I made a video of Tucker applying an Egyptian Key border stamp to what will become a paddle holster for a Glock 30. The stamp is about a half-inch in size and takes repeated mallet taps and perfect alignment. Each tap must be equal in force or the depth of the stamp will vary and produce a ragged result.

Those of you who are waiting for your leather please appreciate that one man is making every order hiimself. If you could watch Tucker for an entire day, you’d be amazed how much work he actually produces while maintaining consistent quality.

I think you’ll find this video of Tucker in action very interesting.
