    Down Range Gear (downrangegear.net)

    Does anyone do business with Chris at downrangegear.net? For the past few years I've been buying different things from him. Webbing, ITW buckles, shock cord, my kit field repair kit (Best that you can buy) and some different items for mounting molle pouches on my warbelt's belt. Great stuff. Really is. Usually a pretty quick response time. I ordered another field repair kit and he pinged me May 22nd about putting in my empty sewing bobbin and he'd refill it with coyote brown mil spec #69 bonded nylon. That's what I use for any kit mods or repairs. The stuff is as strong as superman. Well we exchanged emails on 5/22 and it's been dark since.

    I know he's a one-man show and at times he's been overwhelmed, because there are some gear manufacturers that use some of the stuff he's created. They have a big order, Chris in turn has a big order. But he's never gone dark this long. He's a former Marine, based out of 29 Palms.

    So just wondering if anyone else out there had done business with him lately. Or heard from him lately. At this point I'm more worried about him than my $19 bucks.

    THanks!

    I ordered from him about 2 weeks ago. Zero reply! Have you heard anything yet?

    Fortunately I was able to reach out to a friend of his who told me that Chris is overwhelmed with some pretty large custom orders that’s had his nose to the grindstone. Being a one man show means something going to suffer.

    The stuff I ordered isn’t critical so I’ll just wait until he comes up for breath. It’s been just over a month since I got an email from him. I know he’s good for it and can breathe better knowing he’s just overworked.
    Is your stuff mission critical or can you wait?
    If your AD or LEO and need whatever you ordered I can try to reach him through his friend. PM me your name if that’s the case.

    Also if you ordered any ITW bucked or QASM buckles I can probably help you out as I’ve got a good supply. Anything beyond that and shock cord and I’m out of stock. Lol

    No I didn't order anything mission critical and I am not Leo. So I will wait for the items and get them when I get them.
