DSG CDC Pocket_Pistols (1 of 10)

Compact Discreet Carry – New Pocket Pistol Models

Fort Worth, TX, – In a move to provide more options for concealed carry, Defense Solutions Group, Inc. has added three new models to the Compact Discreet Carry IWB Holster line-up: the Ruger LCP, Smith & Wesson M&P Shield and the M&P Bodyguard.

The DSG CDC Holsters, priced at $49 retail, are currently available for order in the new models as well as Glock 17, 19, 26, 42, 43, and Sig P229.

Feedback on the DSG CDC Holster has been strongly positive, with one reviewer stating “I had been using the DSG Alpha with J hooks for IWB carry.  That was a good solution – no issues – however, the CDC is even better, much better.  Carrying G26 (standard mag) I hardly notice it’s there — to the point where sometimes I reach back to make sure it’s still there.”

The CDC (Compact Discreet Carry) Holster was designed for low-profile all-day wear, with an adjustable cant for both appendix or behind the hip belt placement. The rubber-mounted belt clips are designed to easily slide onto standard size 1.5” or 1.75” belts, locking securely in place. The CDC Holster comes with an engineered sight channel for night sights, as well as adjustable weapon retention.


– Adjustable cant: upright/vertical for appendix OR forward for behind the hip
– Smooth kydex texture for comfortable carry
– Rubber mounted belt clip for easy on-and-off the belt
– Belt clip designed for secure retention through daily activities
– Adjustable weapon retention
– Engineered sight channel for night sights 
– Smooth draw

Models for the Sig Sauer P320C/P320 subcompact, and left-hand models for the Glock 17, 19, 26, 42, and Glock 43 are in the production plans for Spring 2016.

SHOT Show – Blackhawk

Friday, January 22nd, 2016


This is Blackhawk’s new TecGrip IWB Holster. The TecGrip is made of a proprietary gripping material which allows for clipless IWB carry, and it can be washed with soap and water (apparently, the material is also great at exfoliating skin). The TecGrip is also ambidextrous for left or right-hand carry. The TecGrip comes in multiple sizes, for carrying anything from small, double-action revolvers to 5″ barrel large auto handguns.


This is the TecGrip Pocket Holster. It’s pretty much the smaller cousin of the TecGrip IWB, intended for in-pocket carry, but with all the same features. As expected, the TecGrip Pocket comes in multiple sizes which also supports smaller handguns, from small .22/.25 autos to most subcompact 9/.40 auto handguns.

SHOT Show – Elite Survival Systems

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Elite Survival Systems has introduced a line of concealed carry pouches that actually look like normal day-to-day bags. They are designed for guns in the G42/43 range.


The Marathon GunPack is actually useful for runners with 14 oz of water in flasks. It also has a nonslip back so it stays put.

I also like the Photo Ops GunPack which looks like a chest mounted camera pack.

Comp-Tac Victory Gear Introduces New Q Line of Holsters at SHOT 2016

Saturday, January 16th, 2016

Houston, TX – Comp-Tac Victory Gear, a leading manufacturer of quality holsters and holster accessories, has introduced a new line of holsters; The Q Line. Modular and easy-to-use, these holsters address shooter’s needs for storage, range use and concealed carry; all while maintaining the high-quality construction and materials expected from Comp-Tac’s products. The models offer both inside the waistband or outside the waistband holsters for concealed carry or competition with multiple clip options. The holsters will be on display at the company’s booth (#15743) during SHOT Show 2016 in Las Vegas, NV.

The Q Line of holsters are designed for individuals both new to handguns, as well as those looking for a versatile solution, providing simplicity and value for their daily carry. Offering a more modular design, each holster allows for a variety of gun models, with no interchangeable shells or clips required. As is the case with all of COMP-TAC’s holsters, each of the models in the Q Line provide Retention Adjustment for a secure fit, and are molded with Kydex bodies (best materials for smooth no-stick draw). The durable yet gentle mounting options are built strong enough withstand wear and tear, all while protecting belts, clothing and car seats.

The Q-H (Hybrid) Holster

For the shooter who is looking for the ultimate option in comfort and sturdy easy to draw from holster, Comp-Tac has created the Hybrid option in the Q Line: The QH. Combining experience and innovation into a price point that will allow concealed carry customers both novice and veteran to stay on budget, and still get all the best holster features.

The open-ended shell makes for a perfect fit for firearms of varying lengths, and the funneled design allows for easy draw and re-holster. The Kydex shell permits a smooth, no-stick draw, maintains it shape for easy re-holster and is made from a Kydex designed to withstand a fall test.

The Q-H has leather backing for maximum comfort and easy concealment. A tension adjustment screw allows users to adjust the tension to each different firearm that they carry in the modular shell. The patented Comp-Tac Clips, offer users ride height and cant adjustment to allow them to set the holster up for their own personal comfort requirements.

The Q-I (Inside the Waistband) Holster

Designed to meet a growing demand for versatile, inside-the-waistband Kydex holsters, Comp-Tac perfected the notion by taking into account unique user experiences, expertise and the concept that different body shapes and lifestyles create multiple concealed carry needs.

The Q-I is made with an open-ended shell for a perfect fit for forearms of varying lengths, and the funneled design allows for easy draw and re-holster. It offers Comp-Tac’s one of a kind, all Kydex construction and molding for the smoothest fastest draw, and a retention adjustment screw for the perfect hold for multiple firearms in each modular size.

Taking into account the ambidextrous shooters, the holster has a dual sided multi-option mounting block, which also allows for the adjustment of cant at 30° for multiple position wear. The sight-enabled design accommodates up to .5” high night sights, suppressor sights and rear sight mounted optics.

In an effort to maximize comfort and minimize stress points, the Q-I is designed with smooth edges throughout, with a polymer clip that allows for fast and easy wear. Its minimalist size is perfect to quickly put on, easy carry on the body and effortless storage when not in use.

The Q-B (Outside the Waistband Belt) Holster

Comp-Tac has perfected the demand for Outside the Waistband holsters. Their involvement in general shooting activities, range use, and competitive shooting sports has given them the knowledge to develop the best in outside the waistband holsters.

The Q-B, is made with an open-ended shell for a perfect fit for firearms of varying lengths, and the funneled design allows for easy draw and re-holster. It offers Comp-Tac’s one of a kind, all Kydex construction and molding for the smoothest fastest draw, and a retention adjustment screw for the perfect hold regardless of which firearm used in the modular size ranges.

Unique to the Q-B are mount holes that are compatible with all industry mounting options for belt, molle or thigh holsters. The QB comes with the popular Push-Button Mount that is designed to be added quickly and easily to the belt while offering the security of a sliding lock to hold securely when needed. The multiple holes allow for 180° cant adjustment. The QB is legal for all competitive shooting sports and provides a quick, easy-to-use concealed carry option.

“Development of the Q Line has been one of the most exciting projects I have had the chance to work on here at Comp-Tac. From initial concept stages, R&D, fit, finish and function almost every Comp-Tac employee had a hand in the design. In addition, we were even able to involve customers in some beta testing which gave us valuable feedback,” explained Comp-Tac’s President and Owner, Gregg Garrett.

“The Q Line provides the modular fit, the flexibility to personalize and the value that we as shooters want and that our customers have been asking for.”

The full Q Line of holsters will be available for purchase on Thursday, January 16th, through Comp-Tac’s website.

Oregon Trail Defense – Nub Mod Now Available For Level 3 Holsters

Friday, December 18th, 2015


Earlier in the year, we wrote about Oregon Trail Defense’s Nub Mod for Safariland ALS holsters. Now, OTD is offering a model of the Nub Mod for SLS Level 3 holsters, which are a popular choice with many LE agencies. The Nub Mod is a drop-in replacement piece made of anodized, machined aluminum. It offers a more ergonomic contact point for the thumb break lever, with a reverse angle which matches up with the pad of the user’s thumb, and a wider body which decreases the potential to miss the activation lever.
