    It used to be just Tucker and I, with Tucker making them and me on the phones.
    We used to have a long wait.

    Update: Now there's a total of 10 of us with Tucker still doing the final finish work and fancy stuff.

    What's the impact? You're right - much shorter lead times now.

    Fancy stamped rigs are now 4 months, Unstamped rigs (belt, holster and mag pouch) 8 weeks.

    Is there a store front or dealer in the Houston/Spring area?

    No, my office is in Houston and the shop is in Porter. We have very little inventory and no store front. We make to order and ship right out.

    Maybe someday.

    I can attest to that. I received a "The Answer" holster from Tucker recently almost 4 weeks to the day that I ordered it. Excellent holster! Very comfortable! Thank you the great service and the excellent holster! :D

    I can also say that Rob returns e-mails from prospective customers very promptly. I was looking for a custom rig for a long slide 1911 and sent an inquiry by e-mail about 7 PM on a Saturday, figuring I'd hear back on Monday. Rob responded within an hour! After a couple more e-mails over the next couple of days, Rob indicated that Tucker could support my needs and they got the order.

    Now comes the hard part, waiting for custom work. Quality takes time - quality takes time - patience, weedhopper...
