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.”

Comp-Tac QB Holster Worn by U.S. Army Gen Austin “Scotty” Miller

Tuesday, May 11th, 2021

Comp-Tac’s QB Holster used by top U.S. general in Afghanistan
HOUSTON –– U.S. Army Gen. Austin Scott Miller was recently shown wearing Comp-Tac’s® QB™ Holster in Afghanistan. highlighted Miller, commander of U.S. Forces – Afghanistan and NATO’s Resolute Support mission, wearing the versatile QB Holster while meeting Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin during his recent visit.

The article describes the general’s Glock, equipped with a red-dot optic and compensator. The sidearm is clearly photographed in the uniquely identifiable QB Holster. An experienced marksman, Miller has experience both as a special forces officer with Delta Force in the early ‘90s and early 2000s and as a competitive shooter.

The QB Holster is a multi-fit, outside-the-waistband holster specially designed to offer a wide range of functionality and diversity. The QB line consists of four sizes that accommodate nearly 85 percent of the most popular handguns. Comp-Tac’s multi-fit functionality does not require any special parts or pieces, only some slight user adjustment of the retention screws. In addition to multi-fit capabilities, the QB is designed for a wide range of diverse handgun modifications. A red-dot optic cut allows firearms to be used with red-dot sights and an open-ended design permits for the use of multiple lengths of handguns, threaded barrels, suppressors, compensators and similar modifications. Finally, the holster features the versatile Push-Button Locking Mount (PLM™), which fits a variety of belt widths, and has an ambidextrous design to support right- or left-handed users.

“As a holster manufacturing company, one of the things we hear from gun stores is that they have walls of holsters,” explained Gordon Carrell, Comp-Tac general manager. “With so many manufactures and models, it can be an overwhelming task to try to keep a good stock and variety of holsters on hand. Customers are buying guns and ammo, it makes sense to add a holster to that purchase. But if you don’t have one, you can’t sell one. The QB gives stores the ability to have a holster for nearly every handgun they have in stock on only four pegs. This creates an enhanced customer experience while making inventory management less complex.”

In addition to simplifying store inventories, handgun shooting instructors have found the QB to be an excellent option for on-hand supplies for training classes. The multi-fit functionality ensures that there is a quality loaner holster on hand for nearly any handgun a student might have.

The QB is also legal for use in the most popular competitive shooting sports, such as IDPA and USPSA. With an MSRP of $50.99, this holster is a great choice for single or multi-use setups. For more information, please visit
