Regular Guy Tactical – A Holster Company

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019

During last week’s Outdoor Retailer Snow Show I had to pleasure of meeting the owner of Regular Guy Tactical. Turns out the owner of RGT is anything but regular.

One of the good things about Outdoor Retailer moving to Denver is that it’s fairly close to Fort Carson, Colorado, home of the 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne). Regular Guy Tactical was founded by a wounded warrior 10th Group NCO who has taken the needs of his profession and created a holster to satisfy them in his off-duty time. Since he is still on active duty, we’ll keep his identity a secret, but due to his injuries, he will probably be separating soon.

As for the holster itself. It’s an injection molded modular design that quickly converts from inside to outside the waist band. They use their own clip to secure the holster which combined with the grid holes allows ride height and cant adjustment.

Their patented retention system relies on silicon bands which can be combined up to four total to adjust the amount of retention.

The holster is also configurable for left or right handed use. Additionally, the screws are countersunk so you never scratch your pistol’s finish.

There’s a concealment device molded into the holster to prevent printing.

The magazine carrier can be worn stand alone of mounted to the IWB platform and is configurable for right or left carry (bullets to front or rear) as well as height and cant.

Currently, RGT only makes holsters for the most common Glock handguns. This is simply a matter of being a small, but growing company and concentrating initially on the pistols they encounter most often.

If all of that isn’t enough, a portion of every sale goes to the Special Forces Foundation.


SOCOM GPC Customer At Ft Campbell Seeks Glock Clips

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Guys, educate your Government Purchase Card holders and Contracting Officers on the proper nomenclatures for the equipment you need to complete the mission.

Recently, FedBid.com issued this notice on FedBizOpps.com alerting industry to a SOCOM GPC holder’s desire to buy “Glock 19 Holsters & Clips.” The problem here is that there’s no such thing as a “Glock Clip.” Obviously, the request should have been for magazines, along with the desired capacity.

FedBid is a reverse auction site, operated on behalf of the government by a private company. It lists the item(s) required by the government client and facilitates industry’s bids to provide the gear, but with bids going lower and lower until the lowest price is established. Then, the winner provides the equipment purchased to the government client.

On the surface, the process sounds great, particularly for commodities like cleaning and office supplies. But for some items, the process may result in the client not getting what they want due to poorly written requirements. For instance, asking for “clips.” A vendor could sell the government something that doesn’t meet the actual end user requirement. Worse still, due to the FedBid process, it can be difficult for the client to recoup their funds if the vendor’s solution doesn’t line up with expectations.

Educate those providing your equipment so they don’t inadvertently buy you something you don’t need, or can’t use.

SHOT Show 19 – SureFire Update

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

Here are a few updates for you from SureFire.

First off, they’ve introduced a Titanium version of the popular SOCOM300 Suppressor.

It was developed for use with 300 WM and 300 PRC bolt-action rifled, but many are using it as an all around Suppressor, with 7.62, .308. .300 and even 5.56/.223.

Next up is the SF Ryder 9-Ti2. It features a Titanium tube and stainless steel baffles. While it’s slightly heavier than the original version, design tweaks make it more reliable when get out towards 1000 rounds without cleaning.

SureFire is offering an all IR version of the XC2. The XC2-A-IRC offers up to 4 hours of IR Laser and/or light.

But the biggest thing I’ve been asked about is whether there’s a holster compatible with the new XVL2 light and laser combo.

Yes, there is. SureFire worked with Safariland Group who created a version of the 6360 Holster for a Glock 19/23 equipped with a XLV2.

Products will begin rolling out soon from www.surefire.com.

Saturday, January 19th, 2019

Slim, low-profile design features Pinch retention in a multi-fit open-top holster


ONTARIO, California – Bianchi®, a brand of The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, announced today the release of the Model 4585 Prevader™ Concealment Holster. This ballistic weave model features the exclusive Pinch® Retention Device (PRD™) which secures the holstered firearm by gripping both sides of the trigger guard when the gun is fully seated.

“By incorporating Bianchi’s PRD retention, this model offers a super slim holster body and added security with an instinctive draw,” said James Dawson, category director. “The growing concealed carry market with the demand for quality yet cost-effective holsters with retention capabilities led us to expand upon our hugely popular ballistic weave Evader™ model. The new Prevader holster does just that.”

The Bianchi Prevader holster features a low profile making it highly concealable and comfortable for everyday carry. The internal Pinch Retention Device is formed of a durable high-tech polymer and allows the user to feel when the handgun is fully seated in the holster. The Prevader holster rides high and close to the body for comfort and the open top design has a reinforced opening, making one-handed reholstering easy and efficient.

The Prevader model features a durable trilaminate construction of a 1050-denier ballistic weave exterior, a closed-cell foam center and a nylon lining for a smooth draw. The closed-cell foam allows the holster shape to “set” in the holster providing a confident fit for a variety of pistols. Once the firearm is removed for a day, the holster resumes its natural shape, allowing for a good fit with a different handgun model. The holster attaches to a belt with dual snaps for easy on/off access and fits up to 1.75 in. (45mm) belt widths. The Prevader is offered in three sizes to fit a variety of Glock and S&W M&P models, as well as the Colt Commander, Ruger SR9/SR40 and the FN FNS 9mm, .40. It comes in black and has an MSRP of $38.00.
