The owner is very fast to answer emails and is very friendly. I haven't ordered anything yet, but so far customer service seems top-notch.

Anyone contacting me from here use tom@2aholster for email. I'm a stickler on other peoples privacy.

And make sure to let me know you're a SOCnet'r.
Even though I don't post to the donation thread, I give a percent of sales realized thru SOCnet to the admin acct. So another good reason to let me know your a member here.

And just FYI, I do this full time. I have no other job. So it's live or die by my own hand.

Thanks for the continued support!

I ordered the "Standard Bearer" pancake holster for a Glock 21 about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Tom was very quick to respond to my questions and I had the holster in-hand in a little over a week. I've worn the holster for several days at work and am very impressed. It keeps the pistol very close in and concealable, even with a G21. It's also very supportive and doesn't roll the belt out or drag the waist of the pants down as much as most of my other holsters. This has quickly become my favorite holster for concealing my G21. I plan to order another holster, for the pistol and light here in the near future. Good gear, great customer service. I'm very impressed.

My 'battle belt' custom (my belt has two rows of MOLLE vs three, so it's hard to work a holster on - OEM anyway) kryptek camo holster is in the mail to me now.

I have to say, working with Tom has been a breath of fresh air in an industry of folks who make kydex holsters and who don't know what customer service is...

Just from the pictures I can see that he doesn't just make holsters, he is an artisan.

I can't wait to hold the finished product in my hand... I'll post pictures when I get it, of course.

I tend to run a lot of rounds when I shoot.
And my guns get hot have not had a issue with the kydex melting or deforming the holster.

I have burnt my leg though.

I've been running a IWB for my Glock 17 for about 2 weeks. Top notch construction, perfect fit and super comfortable. The holster fit is perfect and retention is secure. Great product. I wore it today with a pair of board shorts to run to the store.

Thank you for the update. I just (have to) assume everyone is happy with their gear unless they tell me otherwise.

JAFO doesn't count; see this thread

Though I didn't tell you, I wanted a report from you. I changed Kydex on my IWB from .060 to .080
After using .060 for some time, I couldn't find joy with it. It's easier to work with and all that, but I felt the .080 has just the right amount of stiffness to make me feel like it works.

Thanks you and glad to hear it works for you Sir!

It works great! I showed it to my BIL yesterday. I think he is going to order one soon. Can you do a M&P Shield?

I have a long term wear report on 2AHolsters.

I believe I have one of the first generation pancakes and IWB holsters. I also have a newer pancake (for when I put the light on the pistol) and a newer one that attaches to my battle belt.

I have to say, other than some of the screws coming a big loose - I haven't had any issues - even with the first generation ones. All are still going strong.

I wear my M&P 9c pancake holster under my suit all day long and totally forget its there. It conforms perfectly to my hip, while letting me move it around depending on what Im doing and if I want it closer to my front or back.

Check the screws every now and then, but otherwise. A+

Try a little blue loctite?

Tom did a fantastic job. The holster fit and finish are perfect. I plan to buy a couple of OWB style pancakes soon.

Tom, consider adding a thumbsnap

Alex, Glad you're pleased. Thank you for taking the time & expense for sending your belt to me.
I bought a Level II thumb actuated retention lever/thumb-break recently and that style holster is one it would work on. I haven't tried it yet, but need to.
