Gear Review: Hanks Gun Leather IWB Holster for SIG P238

As soon as SIG SAUER worked through the initial hiccups with the P238, I had one on order. And when Underwood Ammo’s 90-grain .380 Auto Xtreme Penetrator +P round utilizing Lehigh’s CNC’d billet copper bullet hit the market, the P238 became my EDC sidearm of choice. At the time, the market’s general interest in the […]

Gear Review: Bigfoot Gun Belts 14 oz + Core Belt

Bigfoot Gun Belts is sandwiching a thin, spring-steel core in the middle of 14 oz English bridle leather to create this 14oz Leather + Steel Core belt. That sheet of steel is plenty bendy in your standard belt direction — you know, the curly way so it can easily wrap around your waist — but […]

Gear Review: Cook’s Holsters IWB w/ Adjustable Belt Clip

You’re looking at my new EDC holster, an “IWB w/ Adjustable Belt Clip” from Cook’s Holsters. I picked up the Beretta Nano version for testing in July and liked it so much that I couldn’t live without buying another one for my Taurus TCP. These things are beautifully simple, flawlessly finished, and add almost nothing to […]

Gear Review: Theis EZ-Clip Holster

Tommy Theis runs Arkansas-based Theis Holsters. He hand-makes every holster, mag holster, and belt that comes out of the shop, and test draws from each holster to ensure proper fitment. I really like single-clip, hybrid holsters, and thought I’d try one from Theis — their EZ-Clip — for my H&K P7 . . .

Gear Review Update: Kholster Crescent IWB Holster

Last month’s review of the Kholster Crescent IWB hybrid holster generated a tremendous response from our readers. Your comments were numerous and well-reasoned (h/t to Rabbi) and showed me the enormity of the Kholster’s only significant fault: the difficulty of obtaining a proper firing grip before drawing your pistol. That fault became more and more […]

Gear Review: Kholster Crescent IWB Holster

Last month I found myself searching for a custom-fit IWB holster for the eminently-concealable SIG/Sauer P250 subcompact. I’ve heard nothing but praise for the Crossbreed Supertuck, but I had a gun to review and Crossbreed’s advertised 4 to 6 week waiting list made me look elsewhere. Kholster’s online store promised a custom fit and quicker […]

Gear Preview: the N8² Tactical Pro IWB Holster

For conceal carry types, the search for the perfect holster is akin to the search for the Holy Grail. Only not as funny as the Monty Python version. Expensive too. (Although, if you’ve priced a brace of tickets to the Broadway show, we’re probably talking about a similar amount of money when it comes to […]

Gear Review: N8² Tactical IWB Holster

I’m a tough case for holsters. I’m a big guy and I carry a big gun. Big in all directions; I’m about 40 lbs. over my preferred fighting weight. truth be told, like many an OFWG, I suffer from the dreaded Muffin Top Syndrome. This permanently temporary state of affairs makes carrying my Kimber 1911 […]

Hottie with a Holster.

Okay. You guys that were moaning (and not in a good way) about the TV spot RF posted featuring the Roller Derby girls? Here’s a little something to take the sting out. It took me some time to find a video with both a hot woman (who happens to be taking her clothes off), that […]
