2nd Amendment 1791 LLC Acquires SNAGMAG

Thursday, October 24th, 2019

2nd Amendment 1791 LLC, manufacturer of multi-fit holsters and accessories that accommodate a wide range of firearms, announces the acquisition of SNAGMAG™. This acquisition expands on their diverse product line-up focused on providing customers high-quality accessories at an incredible value.

SNAGMAG™ was invented by a plain-clothes law enforcement officer who needed a better option for carrying a spare magazine. SNAGMAG™ was the perfect solution, as it kept the magazine from turning sideways in his pocket or getting tangled with the other items. The bingo moment occurred while at a shooting range. He looked down at his pocket and noticed his pocketknife, and he wondered if he could incorporate a knife clip with a magazine holster. After a year of tinkering and fine-tuning, the SNAGMAG™ was born! Once perfected and patented, the magazine holster delivered on all its promises of discreetly and comfortably concealing an additional magazine with immediate access and convenience. With that their tag line was born “There’s no such thing as extra ammo”.

“After reviewing and using the SNAGMAG™, it didn’t take long for us to realize that it was the perfect addition to our 1791 Tactical line of products. With its ease of use and great concealability it slots right into our line of high-quality Kydex tactical products,” says Ramiro Romani, CEO. The SNAGMAG™ is designed to be worn in your front, support-side pocket and is available in over 50 variations that accommodate the most popular magazines.


• Disguised as a Pocket Knife

• Doubles your Ammo

• Designed for a Quick Draw

• The Most Discreet Way to Carry an Extra Magazine

• Lightweight and Comfortable

Comp-Tac Releases New Hybrid Appendix Holster: eV2 Max

Friday, September 13th, 2019

HOUSTON, Sept. 12, 2019 – Comp-Tac®, manufacturer of concealed carry, competition holsters and accessories, recently released a new appendix inside-the-waistband, hybrid holster.


The eV2™ Max combines the highest quality materials and design features to provide a holster that is comfortable to carry and easy to hide.

The aircraft-grade Kydex® shell provides superior fit for a smooth, fast draw and maintains its shape for easier and safer reholstering. The largest part of the eV2™ Max’s success is in the Comp-Tac® Kick, a polymer piece added to help situate the firearm in a way to hide the grip by pushing it toward the body for a sleek and slim profile.

“Comp-Tac® has always been known for their commitment to creating functional, comfortable and high-quality concealed carry holsters and equipment,” said Randi Rogers, director of brand management and 70 time world and national shooting champion. “The eV2™ Max is the next iteration in a long line of holsters purpose built and rigorously tested. Appendix carry continues to grow in popularity with all the new compact and subcompact firearms available on the market. We strive to provide the gear that our customers want and need, and the eV2 Max™ is another step in doing just that.”

The eV2™ Max
• Kydex® shell enables easy reholster
• Features two-ply leather backing for superior comfort
• Interchangeable Kydex® shells allow for carry of multiple guns with one holster
• Ride-height-adjustable clip maximizes master grip
• Comp-Tac® Kick keeps pistol grip tucked against body
• Retention screws allow for perfect holster retention adjustment
• Available in both right and left hand
• MSRP: $67.00

Gathering their reactions from the first few that went out the door, I’m excited to say we exceeded the goal.”, said Ramiro Romani.

The Paddle Holster provides the same great retention and fit you can expect from every 1791 Gunleather holster with the addition of the paddle for day to day functionality. The paddle allows you to slip the holster on and off at a moment’s notice, making running errands easier and switching out your everyday carry for your range pistol quicker.

The paddle positions the holster tight to the body and ensures that there is no movement on your waist while completing any physical tasks. This holster includes an adjustable cant which solidifies it as the best leather paddle holster on the market. This allows you to dial in your perfect drawing angle and personalizes your holster and carry style. The 1791 Gunleather Paddle Holsters come at an MSRP of $64.99, are available in a wide range of styles, and three premium colors, including Signature Brown, Classic Brown, and Stealth Black.
