October 01, 2008  |  by Angela Lu

5.11 Tactical

5.11's Revolution Holster is a secure level 1 retention holster, producing an audible click as your sidearm seats. With the look, feel, and fit of a custom holster, the resilient Revolution Holster offers high impact strength and withstands variable weather conditions, beyond 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, the special slick-surface polymer doesn't wear the finish of your gun. Positive lock trigger guard and adjustable tension screws are standard. Each holster is built for lifetime performance and comes with an adjustable belt loop and paddle. Crafted in the USA, the Revolution Holster is right-handed, comes in 14 styles, and accommodates 40 gun models.

Tactical Design Labs

Tactical Design Labs turned to a real police officer to build the lefthanded version of its "Professional" Real Performance Duty Holster. This model has enhanced ergonomics, with the same durability, injection molding for accurate fit, and stainless steel parts of the original. The holster has features rarely found in security holsters. Its finger tube allows the necessary standoff to access your weapon, even if you and the holster are pressed against a wall, the ground, or the console of your car. The holster's "offensive" ability can also break an assailant's finger against an attack on the officer's weapon. Its mounting system fits the standard 2.25-inch duty belt and is available in mid-ride or high-ride styles.

Uncle Mike's Law Enforcement

Uncle Mike's Law Enforcement presents the new EVO3 Triple Retention Holster for light bearing pistols. To make sure the firearm stays locked in place until it's meant to be drawn, the holster comes with three-way security. The holster's internal locking system provides a snug fit by engaging the ejection port and a spring-loaded retention hood. With just a touch of the finger, the locking device can be released, but stays inaccessible to everyone but the user. A modular design makes it easy to convert to a non-light bearing configuration. This model is now ready for the Glock 17 and 22 pistols.
