FirstSpear Friday Focus – SSD x FS Limited Edition Walt Torso Holster

Friday, November 8th, 2019

We are excited to announce a Soldier Systems and FirstSpear collaboration on a Limited edition SSD Walt Torso holster in manatee grey, now available in the non-stocking non-standard section in the FirstSpear web store.

The Walt was one of FirstSpear’s first products and has remained a favorite. Based on the old M7 leather shoulder holster for the 1911, Tye Walt is made from modern materials to resist rot. Additionally, it’s very forgiving for those pistols which are difficult to find a holster for. I’ve used it with G17s, G19s and 1911s as well as a Hi-Standard Changematic and an FN 509 (although it felt a little loose with the former and a little tight with the latter).

Exceptional cross draw style body holster designed to fit 1911, Glock, M9, 226, and similar sized pistols. Hypalon exterior with subdued SSD laser etched logo. Available while supplies last. Made in the USA with USA Materials.

This is a one-time good deal. once they are gone, they are gone.

For every holster sold $25 will be donated to SOWF, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

Blackhawk Issues Recall For T-Series LC2 Holster When Used With Modular Handgun System

Saturday, October 26th, 2019

In typical media fashion, word went out from the Consumer Products Safety Commission that Blackhawk had issued a recall for the new T-series holster. Crazy stuff was said, making consumers concerned it would make the a pistol on its own. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The issue is simple, but the explanation somewhat complicated.

If you’re using a Modular Handgun System pistol (M-17/18 variant of the SIG SAUER P320), don’t carry it in a T-Series L2C holster.

This affects a very small number of people.

First off, there aren’t that many M17/18 in private hands. These aren’t carry guns; it’s mostly collectors. Because of this, collectors want the holster that is issued with the MHS, which is from Safariland.

Second, unlike the commercial P320, MHS has an external safety. The first run of the LC2 holster has a model for the P320. Holster literature templated that to extend to the M17/M18. Due to a tight cavity, intended for the commercial P320, the first run holsters would move the external safety on MHS models from the safe position. The pistol wouldn’t fire on its own, but the safety may not be in the safe position when the pistol is drawn.

Blackhawk has already made changes to the LC2 holster to accommodate the external safety.

This was never an issue with either the L3D and L2D versions of the T-series holsters.

Below is Blackhawk’s official statement on the subject.

Official Message Regarding T-Series L2C for Sig P320-M17/M18 Variant

In an effort to clarify misinformation reported by some media outlets, we would like to take this opportunity to further explain the recent recall of the T-Series L2C that specifically affected the Sig Sauer P320-M17/M18 variants.

To showcase the limited scope of this recall, we’ll outline the levels of specificity you have to go through before someone would be affected in this situation. First, we have the overall family of T-Series holsters, which includes the L3D, L2D, and L2C variants. Next, we’ll drill down a layer further to only the L2C variant of the T-Series. Another narrowing of the focus takes you to the specific L2C Sig P320/P250 fit. One more step, and we arrive at the M17/M18 variant of the Sig P320. If you are one of the few people who owns a Sig P320-M17/M18 and you specifically purchased the L2C version of the T-Series, only then does this recall apply to you.

Thanks to the new nature of this holster as well as the relatively new nature of that handgun being made available to the public, the great likelihood is that there are very few people out there who would meet both criteria of owning a T-Series L2C as well as the M17/M18 variants of the Sig P320.

This recall only affects the T-Series L2C model for the Sig P320/P250-M17/M18, and affects no other models of the T-Series family of holsters. If you are using an M17/M18 variant, the concern is that the added safety mechanism of the firearm could potentially be disengaged during the holstering of the firearm. The holster will in no way actually cause the firearm to discharge.

This issue has since been rectified, so all new T-Series L2C Sig P320/P250 fits will now also work with the M17/M18 variants. Curious to know if you have the “new” or “old” version? Look at the part number on the back of your holster – if it’s stamped with an “A”, then that is the old version. If it is stamped with a “B”, that is the updated version.

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
