DeSantis Holster and Leather Goods
Bike Patrol Holste

DeSantis Holster and Leather Goods has introduced a new Bike Patrol holster. The rig is designed primarily to meet the needs of bicycle patrols but is also ideal for warm climates and coastal environments. Don’t let the name fool you; the Bike Patrol is just as at home in a patrol car as it is on a bike. It is lightweight but very substantial. The holster comes in Level II retention as the Model N-52 or in Level III protection as the Model N-57. It is made of padded ballistic nylon with a hard synthetic outer shell and mounted on a tough engineered synthetic belt hanger. The Bike Patrol is available for most Beretta, Glock, SiG, and Smith & Wesson autoloaders.

Gould and Goodrich
K-Force with M-6 Light

Gould and Goodrich’s K-Force holsters are constructed with a weatherproof polymer laminate and are extremely durable and scuff resistant. All K-Force duty holsters and accessories are hard molded to take the kind of punishment law enforcement personnel dish out. The K-Force holster for weapons equipped with the Streamlight M-6 combination Tactical Light and Laser, Model K-370, is grab-resistant, yet allows rapid draw with a simple twist-then-up motion. This mid-ride rig fits belts to 21/4 inches, has a channel to protect your weapon’s front sight, and is suede lined. The K-Force duty belt will not sag with the weight of a weapon and all the other gear we wear into the field. This holster is available for the Glock 17, Glock 20, and the Beretta 92FS Vertec.

Levitation Raptor Holster

The new Safariland Levitation Raptor Holster incorporates the company’s famous SLS (Self Locking System) and features the same draw action as the popular SS3 model. This is a level III retention rig that can be equipped as a level IV with the addition of the optional Sentry locking device and hood guard accessory. The Levitation Raptor is designed with a molded ejection port insert that locks upon reholstering and releases with a middle finger tab. Safariland’s Levitation System is a revolutionary new belt, holster, and accessory system for duty wear. It’s light, secure, and it immediately contours to your body for comfort. When you wear the Levitation system, nothing touches your body but the Velcro belt. There is no point of contact to allow pinching, rubbing, or irritation. The flexibility of the molded tubes makes the system comfortable for both male and female officers.

Uncle Mike’s Law Enforcement
Pro-3 Duty Holster

Uncle Mike’s Pro-3 duty holster positively locks the gun to make snatching it extremely difficult, but the wearer can work the thumb break and draw the gun cleanly and smoothly without the need to release any complicated system of snaps and straps. The Pro-3 has an internal locking device, a thumb break, and an adjustable internal tensioning device. For support, strength, and rigidity, the holster is suspended within a thermoplastic exoskeleton. Additionally, a molded sight track protects the front sight and reduces holster wear. In response to popular demand among agencies that wear green uniforms and from officers who are being tapped for “peace keeping duties” overseas, Uncle Mike’s has just introduced the Pro-3 and a number of its basic components in OD Green.
