SHOT 2012 Followup: Raven Concealment Minimal Vanguard II

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

You may remember last Wednesday we reported on the new minimalist holster from Raven Concealment. Here’s a video going into a little more detail, and some more pictures showing the holster with a different weapon. We talked at length with the boys at Raven Concealment, who advised that Yes, they are working on something for Glocks that use a weapon light, but it will take some time because they’re going to have to build it from the ground up.

SSD: The Vanguard 2 with a long-slide .40 Glock.

The Vanguard II uses the trigger guard to latch onto; that’s obviously not going to work with a pistol light mounted. Next up will be Vanguard II’s for the Smith & Wesson M&P. There are some other things in the works, but we’re going to let them percolate a little more before reporting on them.

This is not a holster they say should be used on duty, before some of you get all up in arms about it. It is a nice way to carry off duty though, and I’ve worn mine now a couple days to see what might cause a loss of retention. So far so good. I even went over a regular chain link fence, though admittedly not at a dead run and unfortunately not in pursuit of a felony suspect. I’m passing it off to some officers to do a little DT next week and will advise how that goes; again, keeping in mind this is for wear off duty and/or concealed.

Forgive the camera work and focus on the product, if you’d be so kind. More on their website and on their Facebook page.

Off the Grid Concepts – Custom Kydex

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Off the Grid Concepts, another fine purveyor of custom kydex mag pouches and holsters, has a new “dual mounting option” mag pouch that carries one rifle magazine and one pistol magazine. Check them out on Facebook or at their website to see some of their kit or see what they come up with when they come up with it. One of their mottos is, “If you own it we can holster it.” Their website says they make apparel and outdoor gear, but apparently it’s not up yet.
