New Gould & Goodrich open top mag cases and XCalibur concealment holster at the 2017 SHOT Show

New Gould & Goodrich open top mag cases and XCalibur concealment holster at the 2017 SHOT Show

Gould & Goodrich:  New from G&G is the open top single and double mag cases.  From the forward thinking gurus at Tactical Design Labs (the newest acquisition of Gould & Goodrich) comes the new style of open top mag cases.  Anyone that knows me also knows that I have never been a real fan of the open top mag case designs simply because I just didn’t trust friction alone to hold magazines in place but I am now a believer.  This new and simple design allows open top secure carry by virtue of a retention lever that is easily pushed aside for quick and easy access.  Placing mags into the case is a breeze, and the lever grabs the mag plate immediately upon insertion securing them in place until needed.  Available in belt loop and paddle for versatile carry and available soon from On Duty Gear.
Building on their new and very well received duty holster design, G&G now offers the same holster style in concealment carry.  By adding a belt loop and paddle attachment, it turns the holster that is a favorite for duty carry into a concealment holster that is sure to take it’s turn as a go-to holster for concealed carry.  And as if the holster could not have gotten any better, Gould & Goodrich has replaced the foam at the bottom of the holster with a spring, which makes the draw even smoother.  It is also equally addicting, and promises to make drawing practice fun (is that even possible?).  I found myself continually drawing and then re-seating the blue gun back into the holster as I spoke to the reps on hand at the show.  I was impressed by the smooth and addicting nature of drawing and re-holstering the gun in the XCalibur holster.  With that, I call this one a winner.

Blackhawk’s Tuckable Leather Pancake Holster at the 2013 SHOT Show

Blackhawk Tactical has a new tuckable holster that they were showing off at the SHOT Show.  It uses a mix of leather and Kydex and uses a three slot design for belt wear, which is removable for wearing inside the pants.  It also features tension adjustable retention and a trigger guard, along with a ‘shirt shield’ to help prevent sweat from getting near your weapon.  This holster definitely shows some promise.  We’ll keep you update with a release date.  Most of the new Blackhawk holsters are coming out in the next few months, so I would assume this will be in the same time frame.

Blackhawk Gripbreak Nylon Holster at the 2013 SHOT Show

Blackhawk Gripbreak Nylon Holster at the 2013 SHOT Show

The “Grip Break” Holster from BlackHawk is a modified Yaqui style that has a thumb release that is very natural, to which we’ve become accustomed from BlackHawk.  Expected to be released at end of February along with the Epoch, and will fit the 17/22/31 first.  Next up for a fit in the Grip Break will be the 1911 series, then the S&W M&P Series.  One of the great things about this style of holster is that one fit allows it to fit virtually any barrel length, which makes your dollar go a lot farther.  I have typically been pretty reserved about the Yaqui style holsters, mainly due to security reasons, but BlackHawk is making all the right moves to get my opinion changed with the Grip Break, offering effortless security with a versatile fit.

Galco UW Underwraps Belly Band Holster

 

 

 

The Underwraps quite possibly packs more options than any other holster on the market today!

Galco’s update of the traditional bellyband allows concealed carry of multiple weapons and accessories around your midsection, in an infinite variety of configurations. The UnderWraps™ also enables you to make instant additions and changes to your rig. Two leather holster pockets facilitate stable positioning of one or two firearms simultaneously, while two accessory pockets accommodate badge, cuffs, ammo-you name it!

The UnderWraps can be worn like a traditional bellyband (low on your waistline, partially under your beltline or just above it), or it can be worn around your trunk mid-section (solar plexus area). The two handgun pockets are made of leather to extend the service life of the holsters, and stabilize your firearms in the precise position and angle you prefer. Two elastic utility pockets add an even greater number of possibilities.

The UnderWraps accommodates both right and left hand draw, strong side, crossdraw, small of back and kidney carry, with butt-forward and barrel-forward cants. It can accommodate one or two firearms, spare ammunition, handcuffs, badge, flashlight, tactical knife, wallet, and much, much more! The UnderWraps is constructed of heavy duty elastic and is a full 4″ wide.

Made to fit most semiautomatic pistols and double-action revolvers, the UnderWraps is ambidextrous and available in khaki or black. Four sizes are available to fit almost any gun carrier: SM (30″-34″) MED (36″-40″) LG (42″-46″) XL (48″-52″).
