New From Fobus Holsters: GLOCK 43 ND Evolution OWB Holster

GL43ND

It’s August in Austin (and just about everywhere else, come to think of it) which means triple digits most of this week. That also means I like to tote the lightest, least encumbering rig I can. That’s usually a GLOCK 43 in an IWB hybrid holster. There’s no denying an OWB option would be a little more comfortable, but I haven’t gotten around to buying one yet. Now there’s one more reasonably-priced option out there with Fobus’s announcement of their new GLOCK43 ND Evolution holster. Here’s their press release . . .

Bensalem, Pa. (August 2015) – First Samco, Inc. (FSI), the exclusive distributor of Fobus Holsters & Pouches, is proud to unveil the latest Fobus offering: the GL43ND Evolution polymer holster, available in paddle, belt and ankle models for both right and left-handed users for the new GLOCK® G43 single-stack 9mm ultra-concealable pistol.

The Fobus Evolution Series holsters, now available for the popular GLOCK® G43, offer passive retention with an adjustment screw for customized retention based upon the user’s personal preference, ensuring that the user’s pistol stays firmly in place. Steel reinforced rivets secure the holster to the attachment and further strengthen the overall integrity of the holster, ensuring years of reliable and trouble free use. The proven Fobus passive retention design with adjustment screw available on all Evolution Series holsters also enables the user easy and rapid one handed deployment and reholstering.

The proprietary rubber insert on the back on the paddle was designed to keep the holster from moving on the user while at the same time adding to the overall comfort of the holster.

All Fobus holsters, including the Evolution Series, and magazine pouches are supremely comfortable, durable and come with a Lifetime Warranty. Available in black with an MSRP of $37.99 online at www.fobusholster.com.

    That’s a terrible name for a holster.
    Come quick and get the new negligent discharge holster so you can have glock leg too…

      I thought the exact same thing. That is what happens when the marketing company is not very knowledgeable in the product they are marketing.

      I know. What were they thinking?

    4. So where is the trigger finger release button?

    5. avatar Rokurota says:

      Clicked on the Fobus link. Looks like “ND” has been removed from the name. Now we’ll never know what it was supposed to stand for.

    6. avatar John L. says:

      Not to mention, the full model name

      GL43ND

      can read “gland” at a glance.

      1. avatar JSJ says:

        Now it’s Glock Leg 43 Negligent Discharge? Are they trying to make it better or worse?

        That aside, the combo is entirely too much plastic in my pants.

  2. avatar Binder says:

    Oh, that’s not going to print at all.

  3. avatar Edward K. says:

    This is garbage, pure and simple. Why is TTAG peddling this crap is what I want to know.

  4. avatar Dr. Michael S. Brown says:

    I thought the same thing! LOL

  5. avatar CoolBreeze says:

    It’s good to have choices. I welcome another option.

  6. avatar Noah says:

    Friends don’t let friend buy Fobus, period.

  7. avatar Joe says:

    Why would anyone self respecting firearms website advertise for Fobus???? Some new gun guy or gal will inevitably read this story due to TTAG’s prestigious reputation and ludicrous foot traffic and be forced to conclude that at the very least Fobus has made an actual functional product. Stop feeding these stupid companies that should have died long ago.

    1. This isn’t an ad for anything. It’s a new product announcement. We run them occasionally to let readers know about new products that might interest them.

      You may not be a fan of Fobus gear, but thousands of people are. And with all the GLOCK 43s being sold, a lot of them are going to buy these. This just gives them one more affordable choice when they’re looking for a holster.

    Friends don’t let friends carry Fobus.

    Not everyone has loads of money for the drawer of holsters many of us have. A simple thermoplastic holster will get the job done. Hopefully without causing an ND…

    You can have have any accessory you like in the gun world. As long as it is for a glock, AR-15, or remington 700.

    I don’t under stand all the hate for Fobus. Their products are great when used for an appropriate role. I would never use my Fobus holster for CC because it prints. It isn’t great for OC because of the lack of retention. But as a range/training holster it’s works well.

      Fobus holsters have been a topic of discussion on my state firearms owners forum (www.nebraskafirearms.org). Aside from quality issues, the biggest criticism is that they don’t adequately cover the trigger guard. A respected local instructor recommends Blackhawk Sportster, Blade-Tech Revolution or Uncle Mike’s kydex for range and practice. I bought the Revolution for my Gold Cup ($30 plus shipping) and am very pleased with it.

      1. avatar Cloudbuster says:

        My Fobus paddle completely covers the trigger guard of my G26.

  12. avatar Troybilt says:

    I have the Fobus thumb release hosted and I carry it everyday. I have carried it every day for the past 3 years. I love it.

  13. avatar Red in Texas says:

    I have a FOBUS holster, and I can’t complain about it at all. It was the only holster that would work with my M&P 22 with a suppressor attached. It does what I need it to do when I’m out hunting, and it was inexpensive.

  14. avatar Dr. Michael S. Brown says:

    Today at the range I used the holster that came with my Springfield Armory XD-m. It said “made in Israel” and sure looked a lot like a Fobus product. It actually worked quite well for a paddle holster.

  15. avatar Cloudbuster says:

    I have one of the base line of Fobus paddle holsters for my Glock 26, and it’s fine. I don’t use it much for CC, because I have others that hold tighter to the body, but I did at one time, and it concealed adequately under a jacket or a loose shirt. Now I use it as a quick-on field holster, and it’s fine for that. Holds the gun securely and safely.

    The concealabiliy aspect is, in my opinion, just a function of paddle holsters, not Fobus. They hold about as close as you can expect a paddle holster to hold. I’ve got another paddle holster from another maker, and it’s even worse.

    What really annoys me about Fobus is that they refuse to make left-handed holsters for any new models. If it’s not one of their few existing legacy left-handed models, you’re out of luck. A big eff you to 10% of their potential customers.

      If you go to the Fobus website and do a search, you’ll find two Evolution Series of holsters for the Glock 43, in Left handed models (Belt & Paddle) . Here’s the exact link : http://www.fobusholster.com/index.php?p=catalog&mode=search&search_in=id&search_str=gl43ndlh&x=47&y=13

    negligent discharges are caused by the people carrying the firearm, not the equipment! thats why it is called negligent. point is fobus is a good economical holster for the average person. not everyone has $80-$90 bucks for a holster after dumping big money into a handgun.

    1. avatar Ross says:

      I couldn’t agree more. No holster is going to fix stupid (or negligent, if you prefer). Gun safety is a matter of mind over matter, not the other way around. When I’m going to the range or I’m carrying under an untucked shirt or jacket, I want a minimum of hassle getting it out of the holster. This holster works just fine for those purposes. If you’re drawing with your finger going immediately inside the trigger guard, then you need to retrain, or not be carrying at all. Guns don’t accidentally kill people. Knuckleheads with guns accidentally kill people.
