Off-Duty and Plainclothes Retention Holsters

Posted on 16 April 2014

In the past week, I’ve received a couple of emails requesting information about retention holsters for off-duty or plainclothes use. In an ideal world, a holster with equal retention features to our duty holsters, but easily hidden and immensely comfortable would be easy to find. Unfortunately, we don’t live in an ideal world.

PHLster and Boxer Tactical

Posted on 31 March 2014

While I had seen the clear advantages of AIWB carry, had tried it, and very much wanted to like it, I’d never found a holster that, for me, made it comfortable and provided secure access with my full-size M&P. And while I certainly appreciate the value of a good gun belt, I’d never heard anyone, let alone practitioners at this level, rave about one.

Posted on 26 January 2012

As a follow up to our series on the Ultimate Tactical Firearms, I thought that we should continue with a look a some of the better choices in tactical gear. I felt that the next logical discussion should be about holsters.

Review: Galco King-Tuk

Posted on 20 December 2011

It’s comfortable, tough, and practical. I would recommend this holster to anyone looking for a holster that offers deep concealment, good friction retention, and quick presentation.
