A Letter From The Owner

A Message From The Owner Of Bravo Concealment


We know you have been waiting patiently for new gun type options. We would like to apologize for the long wait and assure you that we are constantly working around the clock to expand our holster options.
As you may already know, we have discontinued our “custom” line of gun holsters. This is largely due to the fact, that our lead times were growing larger and larger. Although, some of the “garage” holster companies may think this is a good problem to have; we do not feel that is the case. Well, initially, yes; but as a company grows larger in daily sales, so does the overhead. This can kill a company’s profit margins in the end. This is an example of why you will see some Kydex companies selling holsters for close to $100 or more! A 3-month lead time is a company’s silent killer. It’s just like having too much stock and you simply can’t move the products fast enough.
Anyway, enough of the business lesson. We have designed a new manufacturing process we call AMP (Advanced Manufacturing Process). It incorporates CNC machines, CAD/CAM designs, 3D scanning and advanced engineering. All this creates the aluminum molds we use to make your holsters. Though the process is quite impressive, it is slower than simply taking a “blue gun” and squishing 2 pieces of hot Kydex to make a sub-par mold. But, with our new manufacturing process, once the mold is made, the AMP allows us to make high quality, consistent holsters at a very fast pace.
We have put all our efforts in creating a larger AMP line with more options. Again, we ask you to be patient. Ultimately, this process is made to benefit you, our customers. With AMP we will be able to offer you better prices and meet our goal of “In-Stock” holsters with same day shipping. We thank you for your patience and your business. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we have the best customers in the business. We thank you for all you’ve done and we owe it all to you.
 
Thanks Again,
Rene Aguirre

  • Was looking to buy 4 BCA and 4 Torsion holsters for M&P 2.0 full size, M&P 2.0 Compact, SD9VE, and M&P Shield to have uniformity in holsters with several of my firearms. Had my hopes up after doing much research and determining these were the best options for me only to learn that none are available in left hand and a couple of models not available at all. I think I’ll order the pancake style belt loops that appear to be great and use them with another manufacturers holster for OWB. I’ll have to see if I can find another manufacturer that sells an alternative to the Torsion. Really a shame.

  • You need to add HK vp9-sk. Left hand OWB holster and double mag holder left hand to your list. I will wait for a while. But I will move on if you take too long!!!!!!!!!!!

  • First time BC customer and I hope I don’t regret it. I received the “we got your order” and the “receipt” emails. With the mention of “usually ships in 3 days” on the product description, I also paid the additional $5 for priority shipping as I want the holster as quickly as possible. Giving that it is Labor Day weekend, I will try to hav move patience.

  • I have bought several IWB and OWB holsters from you guys, but only one since you changed your process. I have continued to revisit your site to see if you’ve added any additional gun/light combos (primary Glock/APL and Glock/APLc), but to my disappointment, you haven’t. You may (and likely do) make the best, but as you’ve seen from several of these comments, you have lost quite a lot of business because your AMP being so inflexible. I think you should have kept your custom line in addition to the AMP so you could respond to custom requests. You still state on your site, “Newsletter Sign-Up Join the Bravo email family and receive the latest custom index concealment holster news!” The only problem is, you no longer offer custom kydex holsters.

    Many of us who helped you grow are disappointment. You still make a great holster, and I have always been impressed with the responsiveness by your customer service team. I do hope you broaden your line or add back the custom holster option, quickly.

    All the best,
    Karl

  • highly recommended by very good friends of mine so gave it a try and placed an order on 7/24 with expectation of 3 – 5 days shipping and to receive a shipping confirmation email. 2 days past that – and emailing them at Office@bravoconcealment.com has been no less than disappointing since they were so helpful to me and getting my money. Emailed them again today – no response. Likely calling to cancel my order and go elsewhere. Maybe someone in management might want to read this?
