    Gentlemen, After enjoying my new C9-A1 so much and upon the advise of learned members I am considering a Blade Tech Kydex holster. Does anyone have pictures of the new Blade Tech offering especially with the sidearm holstered etc. I greatly appreciate your time.

    Many thanks

    Simon

    150 rounds and not a skipped beat, absolutely love this pistol.

    I am awaiting the delivery of a Level 2 Tactical for my C9-A1 with C5L.

    I'll post a pic when I get it.

    I also have the same holster on order. (Gee, I wonder where I got that information from??? :p ) I will post if I can. It has about a month turn around time from order to ship, and I am roughly 3 weeks into my order. I sent an email today as a matter of fact to Blade-Tech and I anxiously away a reply with "If they are on track" and when do they think it will ship. I am happy to wait for a quality product, but yes, I am whiny and checking the mail every day! :)

    I showed my C9 yesterday to my brother and my dad, both were *VERY* impressed with the quality, feel and price of the C9. I am very pleased with it, of course! I will be happier after my holster arrives and I can use it over my Intratec Cat-9 I currently carry.

    Don't hold your breath.

    I ordered mine on 2.22.12 and I STILL do not have it.

    I have left a message with Autumn and she has not called me back to give me an update on my order.

    :(

    Hrm. Well, I will have hope? and give it a week (at best) before I knock on their phone. If anything, send a pm to Amy and ask her what is "up" with their timeline. She may be able to shed some light. :)

    FWIW, I placed an order with Blade-Tech a few weeks ago - it shipped 5 weeks later almost to the day. I believe their quoted lead time right now is 3-4 weeks; that usually means 5-6 when it comes to these things.

    I'll have my rigs Monday. :drool:

    homie, the pictures are 170x190.

    If you make them any bigger, it will look like I swatted a fly on my screen.

    Unless the page is just messing up for me and only loading the thumbnail. *shrugs*

    Alright home skillet, I use my super sleuth skills and an old internet trick.
    I fix it for you.
    You had posted the thumbnails by accident. It's cool though, I got ya covered.

    That's a different design on a kydex.

    Pretty interesting.

    Thanks for the fix. On my screen they are fine. *shrugs*

    I don't know the previous design, so no clue what the differences are. I have the paddle for it also so it can "hug" the curve of my leg if I want to add tactical straps. (But since I am just carrying, I think it is safe to say I will skip that useless part :p ) The thumb break is different than I ordered, I originally wanted the snap. I am still adjusting the thumb break and if I just don't like it, I will remove it and slap on a snap. I can get it done easy enough with a leather punch and a trip to a craft store for the snaps. :) I have to say though, for what I have heard about Blade-Tech, the quality is outstanding. The holster is hard to describe aside from saying it just feels indestructible. I am working on the comfort level, it is different than the IWB I have been carrying for the last several of months.
