Safariland Announces First of Several New In-Waistband Holster Models

Saturday, September 24th, 2022

Jacksonville, Florida – Safariland®, a brand of The Safariland Group®, a leading global provider of safety products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets and one of Cadre Holdings, Inc.’s (NYSE: CDRE) (“Cadre”) key brands has announced exciting and much-anticipated news for the concealed carry market. Following the company’s success with retention-rated duty holsters, Safariland is expanding its everyday carry line. Schema™—a new inside the waistband (IWB) holster—is the first of several new models coming in the next few months.

Schema is an optics-ready minimalist holster designed for subcompact firearms. As the namesake implies, the skeletonized outline of the holster frame has a smaller footprint than traditional IWB offerings to optimize concealability. This new model offers superior functionality with a reinforced mouth, allowing for seamless firearm holstering while the holster is worn. The firearm-specific design creates an exacting fit, which is further secured by Schema’s passive trigger guard retention.

“Safariland is thoughtfully expanding on our concealment line to offer consumers unparalleled quality and innovation they’ve come to expect from the brand,” said Eric Gasvoda, VP/GM of Duty Gear for Safariland. “Schema is the beginning of the revitalization of our EDC holster line, and I can’t wait to get it into the hands of our customers.”

Schema and the company’s new EDC line centers solely around responsible concealed carry. New models will incorporate passive retention, up-to-date fits and EDC versatility never before available in Safariland’s lineup. 

Schema is currently available for the Sig Sauer P365, P365XL, Taurus G2C and G3C, Glock 43 and Glock 43X and Springfield Armory Hellcat. For more information on Schema and the inspiration behind its design visit

Blackhawk Surpasses 250 Handgun Fits for Omnivore Holster

New Fits Cement the Omnivore as One of the Industry’s Most Versatile Holsters

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – September 14, 2022 – Blackhawk®, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, has released 24 new fits for the Omnivore™ Multi-Fit Holster, bringing the total number of compatible firearms past 250 and cementing it as one of the more versatile OWB holsters on the market.

New fits available in the Blackhawk Omnivore include options for the Gen5 Glock® 17/19/22/23, Ruger® Security-9®, Smith & Wesson® M&P® M2.0™ 10mm, SIG P320®, Springfield XD® 9mm and XD-M® Elite, plus several others.

The Omnivore manages its versatility by not directly attaching to the frame of the handgun. Instead, the holster attaches to the weapon mounted light (Surefire X300/X300U-A or Streamlight TLR 1&2). With non-light bearing firearms, owners can use the proprietary Rail Attachment Device (RAD) supplied with the holster. 

This small polymer accessory mounts to any handgun with at least one slot of Picatinny rail along its dustcover. The thumb-driven active retention mechanism locks onto the Omnivore’s proprietary RAD, not the frame of the handgun. By utilizing the handgun’s accessory rail or mounted light, the injected molded holster is compatible with a wide variety of semi-auto handguns.

The New Ironside Holster from T.REX ARMS

Tuesday, September 13th, 2022

For the last several years, T.Rex Arms has been making Kydex holsters; mostly focusing on inside-the-waistband and war-belt options. But this year, we applied everything we have learned in the past to the Ironside System, a line of basic outside-the-waistband concealment holsters and modular mag carriers.

Features include adjustable retention, adjustable cant, multiple sizes of belt-loops, optic compatibility, and wide support for weapons and lights. Made of sturdy 0.093″ Kydex with an inward tilt, the Ironside is an excellent solution for high-level shooters looking for strong-side carry, and with an emphasis on comfort and a low price point, it will be a good option for new gun owners as well.

In addition to the pistol mag carriers, we also manufacture carriers for AR magazines, tourniquets, and handcuffs. An included bridge connector allows users to combine multiple carriers in any configuration they want.

Like all T.REX ARMS holsters, the Ironside is manufactured entirely in the USA: built to order in our Middle Tennessee facility, subjected to rigorous quality control procedures, and backed by a limited lifetime warranty and our world-class customer support team.

Alien Gear Holsters Introduces Game-Changing Holsters

Friday, August 12th, 2022

The new Roswell appendix carry and OWB holster line from Alien Gear® is designed with a minimalist approach for peak performance.

Post Falls, Idaho (August 2022) – Alien Gear Holsters®, designers and manufacturers of American-made holsters and firearms accessories, officially launch a new holster collection, the Roswell, a revolutionary new appendix carry and OWB holster series. Designed with a minimalist approach for peak performance, the new Alien Gear Roswell line of appendix carry (AIWB) and outside the waistband carry (OWB) holsters are thinner, lighter, and stronger than the standard Kydex holsters currently available on the market today.

“We at Alien Gear are always innovating,” Shawn Hostetter, CEO of Alien Gear Holsters, commented. “And we listen to our customer base. With a growing number of citizens carrying all day, whether on the job or for personal protection, holsters need to become even more concealed without sacrificing comfort, access, safety, and affordability. Our new Roswell line incorporates all of that and more. These appendix-carry holsters are super light and thin, yet very strong. You get all the security, comfort, and performance you’ve come to know with Alien Gear Holsters in our new Roswell line, designed especially for those that like to carry appendix-style.”

The Roswell AIWB and OWB holsters are designed to be better than traditional Kydex “full-wrap” holsters in every way. Each Roswell holster is made from a proprietary injection-molded polymer that is 20 percent lighter, 40 percent tougher, and 80 percent more heat resistant than other molded holsters, and guaranteed to be the most concealable, better than Kydex holster you’ve ever worn. The included claw and wedge kit ensures the Roswell AIWB stays comfortable and close to the body, and the optional MRDS hood protects your optics.

Alien Gear Holsters’ new Roswell AIWB and OWB series are available for 20 manufacturer models, right or left-hand draw, for an MSRP under $40.
