Police Holsters



Crossbreed Reckoning Holster

Hybrid holsters are comfortable and stable thanks to the large back panel between your handgun and body. With a basic design of a Kydex shell fastened to a leather backer, you don’t have the option of adjusting retention because the backer material, usually leather, can flex. The Reckoning holster from CrossBreed overcomes the challenge with a new hybrid approach. You can tighten the mount screws between the Kydex shell and leather back. Rubber washers in [...]

Best Gear For Your Mission

By |March 13th, 2015|

Carrying a gun for personal protection goes a lot deeper than just strapping on a gun. I look at concealed carry as more of a practical martial art. It takes more than just putting on a gi and tying on a belt to be proficient. You have to practice your [...]

My Questions — Bersa BP380 Concealed Carry

By |February 26th, 2015|

The Bersa BP380CC you see here just arrived. It’s been in my possession for about 24 hours. I haven’t fired it. I haven’t carried it. And it’s Bersa’s first polymer frame pistol in .380 (MSRP $430). I don’t like to speculate, but I think I’m going to like it. Bersa [...]

Nelson Holsters

By |February 15th, 2015|

I have no idea how it happened, but it did — I got “old-ish.” There I was sitting in my shop admiring some new holsters just delivered by the big brown truck when the words came out of my mouth — “They sure don’t make stuff like they use to.” [...]

Nate Squared Tactical

By |February 1st, 2015|

Professional Model I learned a long time ago not to criticize the cuisine until I had a taste. I’ve made some assumptions about a piece of gear just by looking at it and found I was wrong. I don’t think I need to break down the word assume to this [...]

Hard-Use Gear

By |January 5th, 2015|

Diamond D Custom Leather. When I started preparations for hunting elk and mule deer in country known to have really big bears, I knew carrying a large-caliber backup handgun was a top priority. My Hamilton Bowen 4" Model 29 loaded with heavy Buffalo Bore hardcast ammo would be my revolver. [...]

International Handgun Leather

By |December 30th, 2014|

American-Made Quality. In a society where newer is supposed to be better, we can all fall victim to the “I gotta have the newest (fill in the blank)” syndrome. I have a box or three of purchases I thought were going to be the newest greatest widgets. As more birthdays [...]

Unconventional Carry

By |December 12th, 2014|

I’m a huge proponent of on-the-body carry. If you need your firearm to save your life and the only gun you have is in your trunk or desk, it might as well be locked in a safe. For a secondary weapon or backup, I can see the benefit. My wife [...]

Contact! Concealment Holsters

By |November 20th, 2014|

Kydex During a recent tour of a holster-making factory, the tour guide was busting my chops about always writing about non-leather holsters. Since I was a guest, I was polite. Truth be told, I’m an absolute leather junkie. My grandfather owned a custom leather shop making one-off briefcases and woman’s [...]

Cover That Thing Up…

By |October 30th, 2014|

The key word in concealed carry is concealed. In many jurisdictions, if you accidentally expose your firearm and someone reports a man with a gun, it’s a good bet you’ll lose the right to carry your gun, at least for the short term. The wrong concealment attire is almost as [...]

Exclusive: How to Carry the Walther PPX Concealed, Chuck

By |October 16th, 2014|

In The Secret Gun of Walter Mitty, Walther’s PPX proved its worth as a smooth-shooting, ergonomically-fantastic, duty-ready pistol. Reader “Chuck D.”, however, wondered in a comment about the viability of the PPX for concealed carry. “It may have a great trigger; but it will be difficult concealing this baby…” Good [...]
