The first rule of a gun fight: have a gun. Once you’ve decided to pack heat, you’re free to join the debate over gun size and caliber. Oh, I forgot. As you have no way of knowing when a gunfight might occur—unless you’ve established a dueling date with James Yeager—you’ll need a wikkid comfortable carry system. In fact, gunfight rule number one dictates that a comfortable holster is the starting point for an aspiring armed citizen. Not to belabor the point, but the best gun in the world is no help if you’ve left it somewhere because carrying your heater is more of a burden than your kids’ college education. So embrace your inner mouse gun and shove that bad boy (infant?) in the Safariland Model 22 Wallet Profile Holster. It’s a wallet! It’s a gun! It’s a wallet! HELLO? IT’S A GUN! Clever eh? Press release after the jump . . .
With an extra-thin construction and square backing on the holster, the Model 22 provides the impression that a wallet is being carried in the pocket rather than a holster.
Additionally, its sewn hinge-design allows the backing to swing away from the holster so that it will not interfere with securing a firing grip on the handgun when drawing.
“With the Wallet Profile Holster we are meeting a growing marketplace demand. As an evolution of our popular Model 25 Pocket Holster, this model has a square backing to give the impression of a wallet, or other square object, in the back pocket. It also does well in the front pocket to reduce any printing by the firearm,” stated James Dawson, Category Director for the Safariland brand.
With its SafariLaminate construction, the Model 22 stays open for ease of draw and makes re-holstering effortless. Simply drop the firearm into the pocket and it holsters itself. Additional features include a moisture-proof membrane preventing perspiration from penetrating the holster and collecting on the gun, and a suede finish on the outside of the holster which grips clothing minimizing movement in the pocket.
The Model 22 fits small semiautomatic firearms including Kahrs, Rugers and S&W models. It is available in a black suede leather finish.
