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.
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.
