Just got my Blade Tech holster for the M&P. Very nice... I got the belt loop in black. I ordered it in Feb. just over 2 months. Fit is what you would expect.

Balde-Tech products are superb - at least their IWB holsters are. 8 weeks seems to be the norm, unfortunately.

8 weeks seems to be the norm? I wish. My last one was about 9, we just passed week 10 for this current order. Still not shipped.

I have one on order also. I'm at week 4.5 so i cant say much as to wait time. I was told 6 weeks Now what worries me is I had some buddies shooting USPSA in Oregon a month ago and a Bladetech rep told one of them that they didnt even have a M&P yet. Obviously not true as you guys are saying that you have received them. Any input on that statement.



Thx

I ordered a Comp-Tac locking paddle holster the day I picked up my M&P 9mm, had the holster within a week.

Feel sorry for you guys that have to wait months for Blade-Tech.

One of the bigger problems is a lot of us blade-tech guys want to shoot USPSA, so a good dropped and offset design is pretty much needed.



The other problem is that we want to shoot it in USPSA, and people are making noises about dicking around with the holster rules, so DOH holsters may not be permitted in some divisions.



That means you need a 3-piece design that is convertable form normal to DOH.



Which means blade-tech is pretty much the only game in town.



Wellt that or offer a good DOH and regular holsster at half the price of blade-tech.

Got my blade tech finally.. 12 weeks and one day.



I've seen the comp-tac, and IMO it is made better than what I got out of blade-tech. The blade-tech has a HUGE channel for the front sight that makes the holster bulkier than needed (not to mention its all wobbly and crooked like they took the mold off a wrapped gun with 1/2" vinyl tubing taped to the top to make the sight channel), and has a couple of flanges that you don't need above the cutaway. The flanges help you reholster, but they are not the stuff of concealed carry. If I had ordered it for concealment rather than competition I'd be pissed.



For USPSA it's fine, draws quick, decent retention, and clean and easy reholster, but the wait is still stupid.

I took some pics, also included some pics of my bladetech holster for my baby eagle. If you have ever seen a glock holster form bladetech, the sight channel is MUCH smallerand there are no big flaps like ont he M&P holster. It's cut back like on the baby eagle.



comp-tac REALLY nees to start making a dropped and offset holster.
