You may remember last Wednesday we reported on the new minimalist holster from Raven Concealment. Here’s a video going into a little more detail, and some more pictures showing the holster with a different weapon. We talked at length with the boys at Raven Concealment, who advised that Yes, they are working on something for Glocks that use a weapon light, but it will take some time because they’re going to have to build it from the ground up.
The Vanguard II uses the trigger guard to latch onto; that’s obviously not going to work with a pistol light mounted. Next up will be Vanguard II’s for the Smith & Wesson M&P. There are some other things in the works, but we’re going to let them percolate a little more before reporting on them.
This is not a holster they say should be used on duty, before some of you get all up in arms about it. It is a nice way to carry off duty though, and I’ve worn mine now a couple days to see what might cause a loss of retention. So far so good. I even went over a regular chain link fence, though admittedly not at a dead run and unfortunately not in pursuit of a felony suspect. I’m passing it off to some officers to do a little DT next week and will advise how that goes; again, keeping in mind this is for wear off duty and/or concealed.
