Default Forrest City Tactical initial review

A little over a week ago, messaged Forrest City Tactical, a vendor here, about ordering a Kydex OWB holsterand double mag pouch in navy blue for my new XDm 3.8 compact, from .

Bill contacted me immediately after inquiring and told me that he could make the holster for me, and that he'd just ordered the blue gun for the mold.

I recieved a message about 4 days later (Thursday) telling me he'd recieved the mold, and the next day, I recieved another message on Friday that the holster was in the mail.

So I got it in the mail today, and it is a very nice holster. Tight retention, and fits well on my hip. I also love the matching dual mag pouch.

Disclaimer...the only reason I ordered from FCT was because Defensive Holsters did not yet have the gun for the mold, and FCT contacted me first. Mike at DHI did contact me, but not until after I'd already ordered.

So I can honestly say I now have two remarkable vendors for Kydex holsters. Both have great service times (a week from order to recieving the goods). Both followed up great with emails. Both provide excellent products.

Anyone considering an OWB Kydex holster from Raven Concealment, with their 5 week wait, should definitely consider ordering from either of these vendors...you will not be disappointed!

Not much of a picture taker. I just got back from a week long road trip to a Gunsite class, and I didn't take a single picture. Just not my thing, to my own regret sometimes.

Thanks for the review buzz.

If you don't mind, I'll post the pics I took before I shipped it out.



And typically, I ship out the day after your order, at the most 2 days. In this instance, I didn't have the blue gun (mold) for his gun, so I had to wait on my supplier for that.

Also, sorry for misspelling "Forest"

Thanks for the mention. For the record we have a few XD/XDM blue guns on the way. Should be here anyday. I hate we didnt already have them but it looks like you were taken care of.

Yes, FCT took care of me, but I have not forgotten how you guys hooked me up with the belt loops on my last holster, and I'll be doing business with y'all again for sure.

Take care, Mike,
