Tulster Holsters Announces IWB Profile Holster: H&K VP9SK

Monday, July 31st, 2017

Jenks, Oklahoma (July 27, 2017) What’s better than the H&K VP9… how about a subcompact version? In early 2017 Heckler & Koch released the eagerly anticipated VP9SK which has continued to grow in popularity over the last several months. With many requests for an IWB holster, Tulster decided to add the H&K VP9SK to the Profile Holster lineup.

From the ground up, the Profile holster was designed to be an ultra-concealable, minimalistic, appendix carry holster without the drawbacks. Distinct features such as the matte-edge finish and minimal material used facilitate in a comfortable fit providing maximum concealment for concealed carry.

Each AIWB Profile holster is formed to the VP9SK for a snug fit with low drag. The adjustable retention along with the inherent positive retention “SNAP” ensures the firearm is secure when holstered.

Removal of extra material between the muzzle and retention screw adds to a layer of comfort without digging into the body or thigh. The trigger guard is intentionally undercut to promote a higher grip on the VP9SK and allow for a magazine release while the firearm is fully holstered.

From the injection molded belt clip to the soft loop option, the cant settings are easily adjustable from 0-15 degrees to allow for a perfect grip on the H&K VP9SK.

This Profile holster can be ordered in many different colors and patterns for either Right or Left handed shooters.

Holster Features:
• Undercut trigger guard.
• Works with Quick Clip or Softloop Kit.
• Adjustable retention.
• Adjust cant from 0-15 degrees.
• Full sweat shield.
• Rounded and matte edges.
• Minimal material.

Gerber Introduces New Fishing Collection Built For The Adventure Angler

Monday, July 31st, 2017

We recently had a chance to check out this new fishing line of tools from Gerber during last week’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. We already showed you one product. Now, here’s an overview of the whole line.

PORTLAND, OREGON – GERBER, an industry-leading manufacturer of personal knives, multi-tools, and gear, announced today that it will debut a category-defining collection of fishing products at iCAST 2017 in Orlando, Florida. The first look comes ahead of the spring 2018 launch date, when the collection becomes available for purchase nationwide.
For a new breed of fishing, a new generation of tools. Hardcore anglers need tools that work even harder. Tools that take them beyond the beaten path, beyond self-imposed limits, beyond anything and everything that stands in their way. Gerber introduces a new line of multi-functional fishing products that outfit the angler from the trek in, to the catch, to the victorious journey home. These tools are purpose-built for the adventure to extend the experience anywhere and everywhere the angler dares to tread.

“Gerber is known for reimagining the common tool and delivering intuitive, multi-functional gear.” said Andrew Gritzbaugh, Vice President of Marketing at Gerber. “This new collection of fishing products is rooted in Gerber’s extensive experience developing problem-solving products for users in expeditionary environments – from US Soldiers in Afghanistan to Elk Hunters in Montana. This new fishing collection will serve the experienced angler by providing intelligent design, insightful material combinations, and progressive new technologies that will enable them to venture farther and fish beyond.”

The new collection features 12 multi-functional tools that are painstakingly designed and tested, because if it’s taking up space in a kayak, on an ATV, or inside a vest, it better be worth it. Do more and go farther while taking up less space – explore a few leading products.

LINEDRIVER Line Management Multi-tool


Keep the line in the water. The compact, dual-ended LineDriver has everything needed to simplify line management: one end rotates to quickly tie knots and clear eyelets, the other end features a crimper, hook threader, and scissor snips. A pocket clip and tether point keep the tool secured for easy access. 


Get a grip on the unexpected. Swift power is on hand with the durable, hot-forged Magnipliers. The ergonomic trigger grip is offset to keep line of sight in tight places, while the finger choil offers maximum control. The thumb lock and ambidextrous tether points ensure safe stowage and transport while on the move. [Pictured on the Defender Tether.]

PROCESSOR Take-A-Part Shears

Whether on the boat or the shore, you need a tool that can do it all. The Processor Take-A-Part Shears work as a cohesive unit and as independent tools; creativity and control collide in this revolutionary design.

Controller Fillet Knife System [6”, 8”, 10”]

Make short work of messy business. The Controller Fillet Knife System is designed for clean, smooth cuts with a flexible blade that provides just the right amount of give. The intuitive GuideFins™ & tactile HydroTread Grip™ offer ultimate control of the knife, even in slippery conditions.

FreeHander Line Management Tool [Nipper]

The FreeHander lives up to its name, offering one-hand engagement when cutting and securing line. The wide paddle design gives intuitive purchase in cold or wet conditions, and moveable parts provide a custom fit. Optimized for use with Mono & Fluorocarbon line.

Neat Freak Braided Line Cutters

Don’t get caught in the fray; cutting with precision was a key design influence of the Neat Freak Braided Line Cutters. Micro serrated blades partner with BearHand Control™ to deliver ergonomic confidence in hand.

Gutsy Compact Processing Tool [Solid State]

When the tacklebox isn’t a reality, the slim Gutsy is an on-the-go solution that is ready when opportunity strikes. Designed to be efficiently stored and intuitively used, this solid state tool offers 4 essential functions to get the job done.

Defender Tether [Large]

The Defender Tether offers a carabiner designed to fit on-finger for intuitive control and a patented line vise on each side for secure tension relief. Line is protected by an override lock-out system, and the tool is easily carried on straps, belts, or waders w/ a wide-body flexible clip.

Gunner’s Fact Or Fiction – Does The Marine Pack Frame Hold Up?

Monday, July 31st, 2017

There's been a lot of scuttlebutt about the integrity of the Marine Corps' pack frame. If you tell a Marine he can't break something, he's going to prove you wrong and then tell his buddies how to do it as well. But, this time MARCORSYSCOM is one step ahead, as Gunner Christian Wade demonstrates in this video.

Outdoor Research – Congaree Sun Hat

Monday, July 31st, 2017

During a recent trip in Western Virginia, I stopped at a local outdoor store where I found the Congaree Sun Hat from Outdoor Research.

I have no idea why they actually named it after a river in South Carolina, but it’s the spitting image of a military “Hat, Sun” or more popularly known, a boonie hat. It’s made from a very soft, 100% cotton ripstop fabric with stitched reinforcements along the brim.

I purchased the Charcoal (Dark Grey) model seen here, but it’s also available in Fatigue which is a Dark Green. The nonmilitary color, combined with the OR logo on the front, made it an instant addition to my spare set of outdoor clothes I keep in my trunk in the event I need to change into something more rugged and less than conspicuous than what I might be wearing at the time. Along with it, I keep a pair of old Salomons, a Simms Fishing Shirt and cargo pants. For instance, if I need to change a tire, or hike to a gas station, or home, for that matter.

Available in Small/Medium and Large/XLarge.
