SHOT Show – Safariland Introduces New GLS Pro-Fit Holster

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

One holster to rule them all.


ONTARIO, CA – Safariland is excited to announce the debut of the Model 578 GLS Pro-Fit Holster, bringing its unique GLS (Grip Locking System) to fit a wide variety of guns with a single holster.

Designed to fit more than 60 firearms based on barrel length and be customizable for a perfect fit, the 578 GLS Pro-Fit features an innovative technology that automatically secures the weapon when holstered and releases it upon application of the middle finger with a standard shooting grip for a more intuitive and safer release. It’s the only holster on the market that can fit a wide variety of handguns with a secure and easy-to-use GLS lock up.

“Building on the recent success of the GLS and 7TS holster lines, Safariland continues to innovate by combining these two unique features in the 578,” said Scott Carnahan, Vice President, Equipment Category. “As a multi-fit holster, it’s available to a wide variety of our users, making this revolutionary safety-enhancing technology more accessible than ever.”

The 578 Pro-Fit holster body is constructed with SafariSeven material featured in the 7TS line of holsters. This lightweight, state-of-the-art nylon blend is completely non-abrasive to a gun’s finish, tolerant of extreme high and low temperatures, and easy to maintain.

The low-cut and compact 578 Pro-Fit holster rides close to the user’s body for concealment while still providing easy access for a quick draw. The holster includes an injection-molded paddle and an injection-molded belt loop that is adjustable for maximum comfort and allows the holster to be worn cross-draw.

The 578 GLS Pro-Fit is available in SafariSeven Plain Black and FDE Brown finishes with an MSRP of $55.00. Four fits are available that fit a wide array of Glock and S&W handguns. The holster will be featured at The Safariland Group booth #12762 at the NSSF SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) Show at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, January 20-23.

Raven Concealement Systems Shows Us The Next Big Thing In Holsters: The Eidolon

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Fortunately for us, Raven Concealment Systems created a handy graphic to explain where this “Eidolon” thing comes from.


A “phantom” of all things. Pretty lofty claims indeed for a holster, but this “specter” isn’t just about concealability; it’s also fast. To be sure, Raven Concealment Systems has been working on their latest creation for quite awhile now and have really dialed the design in, introducing new innovations in the process. I had seen a very early, orange 3D print version of it back at AUSA 2012 and since then Kyle Defoor began collaborating with development which helped a lot with the “fast” attributes in the design. The evolution of this design has quite a history and until earlier today I thought it still remained in development.

RCS Eidolon (1)

Earlier today a box arrived at my doorstep. I opened it up and it was filled with bits and pieces in plastic bags, looking so much like a Legos set. When it’s all laid out neatly it looks very much like the photo below. While it might look like a lot to some, all of those parts offer choices. You get a great deal of latitude in how you set up your Eidolon holster. Designed to be configured to accommodate a wide range of clothing and body types, the Eidolon incorporates several new features. You’ll be introduced to the “claw’ and “wedge” in the literature below and I’m sure lots of videos will begin to surface in the very new future as users become acquainted with the Eidolon. From what I’ve seen so far, RCS has introduced something new, in a holster market that has a lot of the same. I’m looking forward to things settling down so I can try this thing out for myself.

RCS Eidolon (5)

What follows is the Raven Concealment Systems press release:

Development of the Eidolon began three years ago when we set out to create our “next generation” flagship product. After a year of designing concepts, we began working with Kyle Defoor of Defoor Proformance. His input, driven by feedback he was getting from .gov and .mil clients he trains, helped us select which concept to push forward with. He then worked closely with us, testing prototypes and providing guidance on how to best tailor the holster to meet the needs of various groups conducting low-vis and no-vis missions.

The Eidolon is a professional-grade, injection-molded IWB/AIWB holster designed from the outset to accommodate modern pistols with or without a red-dot optic. It has several ground-breaking design elements which set it apart from any other product presently on the market:
- Its construction is neither a “pancake” style nor a “fold-over” style.
- A body shield and holster body which accommodates all of the most popular red-dot optics presently being fielded.
- An adjustable retention system that does not change the “feel” of the holster; only the amount of force required to draw the weapon.
- A revolutionary “claw” which pulls the butt of the pistol’s grip into the body without causing the belt line to distort.
- A comfortable, soft polymer “wedge” which, when used AIWB, tucks the back of the slide and grip closer to the body to further reduce/eliminate printing.
- This wedge also keeps the muzzle stood-off from the lower abdomen for enhanced comfort during all-day carry.

The Eidolon can be configured in hundreds of different set-ups to optimize concealment in a variety of body types and styles of dress. This holster can be tailored to work on men and women, regardless of size.

RCS Eidolon (6)

The belt attachments are available in both over-hook and tuckable soft-loop format, and can accommodate belts up to 1.75”. These attachments can be run in either single- or double-configuration, and allow a shooter to have the quick on/off capability of a VanGuard 2 while still being able to reholster one-handed.

The concealability of this holster is only surpassed by its speed. The Eidolon’s unique body design and adjustable retention system make it the fastest concealment holster available.
Prototypes and pre-production units of the Eidolon have been tested extensively both domestically and OCONUS, to include some of the major hot-spots of the modern world. These samples were beyond successful in both strong-side and appendix-carry roles.

A very limited run of pre-production Eidolons are now available for purchase. These are in-stock and will ship while SHOT Show is underway. The cost of these pre-production Eidolons is $99.99, and shipping is INCLUDED. They are available from now until supplies run out.

The final production models will be available from RCS dealers within 90 days.

Sheriff Of Baghdad – Custom Leather Condom Holster

Sheriff of Baghdad’s Condom Holster is a hand-made leather holster available for many common handgun models. It’s a minimalist design which covers the slide and rear sight, includes internally sewn front sight channels, and removes all sharp edges towards the body for comfort. It can either be worn inside the waistband or clipped into a 5.56 or .308 MOLLE mag pouch.

High Threat Concealment Belts

Monday, January 5th, 2015

High Threat Concealment has designed two belt systems to be used in conjunction with their HTC Low Profile System that allow the user to quickly put on their system, while still securely holding the gear in place along the waistline. The belts incorporate a two-piece belt concept where the inner belt goes through the pants loops to act as a traditional belt, and the outer belt feeds through the Low Profile System. The outer belt then attaches to the inner belt via high quality Velcro brand hook and loop. The HTC Tactical Cobra Belt incorporates the quick-release functionality of AustriAlpin’s Cobra buckle, and provides a comfortable and secure platform for your HTC Low Profile System. The HTC Low Pro Belt blends the performance of a quality leather gun belt with the comfort of nylon webbing, and helps reduce the appearance of carrying tactical equipment by appearing to look like a normal leather belt. It features a removable buckle to allow the user to thread the belt through his or her pant loops like a regular belt.

HTC has expanded their line of belts, and now offers to additional belts to choose from, the Cobra Tactical Rigger’s (CTR) Belt and the Everyday Tactical (EDT) Belt. The CTR Belt is HTC’s take on the popular rigger’s belt, and it incorporates the new Cobra D-Ring buckle from AustriAlpin. The belt is made of 1.75” Type 13 Mil-Spec Nylon webbing reinforced with a layer of stiff dive webbing around the back from hip to hip. The EDT Belt consists of a sturdy double layer of 1.5” or 1.75” dive webbing from the points of the hip around the back, and then tapers down to a single layer of material where it crosses itself. This results in a consistent double layer of material around the entire belt, instead of a thicker 4-layer area where the belts overlap. It also incorporates the smaller version of the AustriAlpin Cobra buckle, allowing for quick, secure attachment and easy removal.

Come check out the all of the belt options from HTC, as well as their other new releases, at their pistol bay, SR-22, at the Shot Show Industry Day at the Range. You’ll also have a chance to check out and try pistols from Salient Arms International in HTC gear. HTC will also be at BOOTH # 8103 for SHOT Show with their friends from Renegade Armor. You’ll also be able to catch a glimpse of some other products from our friends from Tactical Walls, Tennessee Arms Company, and Velocity Systems.

Maker Monday – S&S Precision Grenade Launcher Holster

S&S Precision Grenade Launcher Holster

GLH Equipped with Launcher

We’ve mentioned a couple of times already in this series that S&S Precision has been hard at work over the Summer developing new items and improving their existing products. One example of this is the incorporation of the Trifecta Connecta and GRT – Webbing Adapter into their popular Grenade Launcher Holster. Designed to retain the standalone HK GLM/M230 GL, the Holster can be mounted directly to Webbing / PALS using the included Trifecta Connecta and GRT – Webbing Adapter. They’ve also updated the padding to mitigate noise and kept the Dynamic Bungee retention system. Available in Left or Right handed versions.
