Holster maker captures the security and safety of its retention technology like never before.

“At The Safariland Group, we live for innovation, performance, excellence and legacy every day” said Tim Drnec, VP of Marketing and Commercial Sales for The Safariland Group. “Our team wanted to go out and show our products in an all-new way, and they certainly achieved that-and then some. These scenarios demonstrate the ultra-reliability of our holsters’ function, design, build and of course, retention.”

Secure Against High Force, Jolts and Torque

Strength, power and endurance are all honed in the gym. They’re also qualities of the world’s top holsters. So Safariland took its products to the gym floor to be tested by free will and brute force. When the time came to push the threshold of Level IV retention, they headed out to a maritime playground for a high-speed day on the water. And to remind everyone that retention is critical at all altitudes, the team went to new heights. They also showed these holsters release how and when they should and function in the most dynamic of environments.

Safariland has taken the utmost pride and gone to immeasurable lengths to ensure firearms are secure in all of its holsters. The company is continuously seeking new innovation to add to the premier product lineup. Every effort is being made to uphold and build upon the legacy of protecting law enforcement, military and security professionals as well as private citizens.

Safariland CADRE Member Julie Golob Wins First Place at Flagler Cup

Tuesday, June 1st, 2021

Safariland’s CADRE is off to a winning start.

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, today announced that Safariland CADRE member Julie Golob won First Place in the women’s division at the Flagler Cup, an NRA Action Pistol regional match held at the Pioneer Gun Club in Bates City, MO.

“It’s so great to be back on the shooting circuit after my last match in 2019,” Golob said. “Pioneer Gun Club has an incredible Action Pistol facility, and this match serves as an excellent warm up for the Bianchi Cup. I love the back-to-back format of being able to compete in a regional event right before the nationals.”

The Flager Cup is an Action Pistol match held annually, the weekend before the NRA Bianchi Cup, and draws top competitors including members of the US Army Marksmanship Unit, Department of Homeland Security, US Border Patrol, industry teams and professional shooters. 

With a perfect score of a 1920, 192x, the match features four, 48 shot events — Barricade, Plates, Practical and Moving Target. Competitors engage targets as close as 10 yards and as far as 50 yards, all with a handgun. To clinch the win Golob dropped just one 8 in the Moving Target event, shotting from the 10, 15, 20 and 25 yard lines. 

“The Mover is such a challenging event. It’s also one of my favorites,” she added. “With a target moving across the range at 10 feet per second, your trigger control needs to sync perfectly with tracking the target. I was extremely pleased to have just one shot outside the 10-ring.”

Golob competed in the Open Division with her Smith & Wesson 9mm 1911, Trijicon MRO, Safariland ELS Belt with Model 014 holster and 776 pouch with Federal Premium ammunition components and Caldwell, Tipton and Wheeler gear. She finished the match with a score of 1906, 153x.

Comp-Tac Revisits CTAC…the Original CT Holster

Friday, May 28th, 2021

HOUSTON, May 26, 2021 – Comp-Tac® released its updated and enhanced CTAC™ V2 Holster May 26.

The original CTAC™ is an inside-the-waistband (IWB) holster first introduced at the beginning of Comp-Tac in 1999. Since then, it has been a favorite among customers because of its thin design and resistance to sweat in hot and humid climates.

The CTAC V2 is an updated version that takes the knowledge and technology Comp-Tac has gained in the last 22 years to become even better. The CTAC V2 maintains the same functionality but now incorporates some new features, including a narrower overall design with the two mounting clips brought in closer to the body of the holster. Additionally, the holster body has been updated to accommodate micro-red dot optics and the color options have been expanded from only black to include coyote brown, OD green and wolf gray.

“When we first started making holsters, it was a thrill to see our products loved and used by so many,” said Gordon Carrell Comp-Tac general manager. “After 22 years of learned experience, bringing on new technology and staying current with the changes in firearm design, we knew we needed to show our original holster some love. The CTAC V2 is a fresh take on a popular holster that doesn’t lose any of the draw of the original.”
