SHOT Show 17 – SureFire Masterfire

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

I did not see this one coming. SureFire has introduced a Polymer Holster, designed to be used specifically with pistols equipped with their weapon lights.

The Masterfire Rapid Deploy Holster will fit most pistols because it uses a proprietary cam and lug system to grip the weapon light in two places to offer level 3 retention with primary and secondary lock systems. This means it will also work with suppressor equipped pistols.

You may notice and “On/Off” Switch at the side of the holster. When selected, this functionality will turn the weapon light on when the pistol is drawn.

Above, you can see the thumb button. Once it’s depressed, you rock the grip of the weapon slightly forward as you bring the pistol into action.

The Masterfire is designed to work with these lights. You’re getting a sneak peek at some upcoming Polymer weapon lights from SureFire.

BLUE FORCE GEAR ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster

Monday, January 16th, 2017

The Blue Force Gear Pocket Holster is the company’s first foray into the everyday carry (EDC) market. The manufacturer of battle-tested weapon slings and battle equipment has used its revolutionary field gear development experience to create the ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster.


Designed with Blue Force Gear’s proprietary high-performance laminate called ULTRAcomp, the new EDC pocket holster exceeds military standard materials in tear and abrasion resistance while remaining versatile and ultra lightweight for the carrier. ULTRAcomp removes extra bulk while solidly securing and concealing a pocket pistol, creating the thinnest pocket holster available today.

By reducing the weight and bulk over a standard pocket holster, the ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster provides additional comfort to the carrier and protects both the weapon and interior of the pocket. The secure weapon positioning that the holster provides ensures safe and accurate grip and weapon removal from its pocket holster.

The Blue Force Gear ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster is available to fit the SIG SAUER® P238/938, KIMBER® MICRO, GLOCK® 42, and RUGER® LCP® / LCP2.

Find technical specs and see a demonstration of Blue Force Gear’s new ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster and other innovative products in booth 31209 at SHOT Show in Las Vegas from Jan. 17–20.

Holster models designed to also protect the red dot optics

ONTARIO, California – Safariland®, a brand of The Safariland Group, respected for its technologically advanced holsters and other gear for the law enforcement, military, concealment and competitive sporting markets, will premier its new holsters designed specifically to fit and protect handguns with red dot optics at the 2017 SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor and Trade) Show, booth #12762. The majority of these models feature Safariland’s patented Automatic Locking System or ALS®, an intuitive internal locking device offering one of the most secure fits on the market. Among the red dot optic-compatible models in Safariland’s duty, tactical and concealment offerings are the sought after Model 6390 ALS, Model 6360 ALS/SLS, Model 6384 ALS and 6378 ALS holsters.

“Staying true to our commitment to provide first-class fit, form and function, the RDS offerings put Safariland at the forefront of today’s handgun trends,” said James Dawson, duty gear category director at Safariland. “The red dot optic is becoming an increasingly popular option throughout the military, tactical and law enforcement markets; we anticipate this trend to continue and plan to stay ahead of the demand. Not only have we developed retention holsters that fit handguns with red dot optics, but also, they protect the optical sights.”

Utilizing the SafariLaminate™ thermal-molded construction, a protective covering is designed around the optic of the holstered gun. These holsters are also designed with a suede-lining to protect the weapon’s finish. To meet a variety of law enforcement needs, duty models offered include Level I, II and III Retention levels. Available are the Model 6280 SLS Level II Retention™ Mid-Ride Duty Holster, the popular 6360 ALS® Level III Retention™ Mid-Ride Duty Holster and the Model 6390 Open-Top Level I Retention™ duty holster. All are also available in hi-ride and low-ride versions. For concealed carry, the Model 6378 ALS Concealment holster rides close to the body.

Tactical rigs offered are the best-selling Model 6004/6005 SLS Tactical Holster featuring a double leg strap with silicone strips for nonslip traction; the Model 6304/6305 ALS®/SLS Tactical Holster featuring both locking systems for increased retention level, the Model 6354/6355 ALS Tactical Holster, an open-top design without SLS for quick retrieval of weapon; and the models 6384/6385 OMV Tactical Rigs, which are optimized for use also on a MOLLE vest, with lower center of gravity than most other Safariland duty and tactical holsters for less pulling on the vest and an open-top design offering quick retrieval of weapon.

Depending on the holster model selected, these red dot optic compatible holsters are available in all STX finishes and will be available in Cordura® Nylon, MultiCam®, Ranger Green, Coyote, Khaki, or Black and have an MSRP ranging from $200.00 – $350.00.
