This daily carry includes a Smith & Wesson M&P SHIELD and Smith & Wesson Extreme Ops knife. The 9mm SHIELD and its spare mag are carried in Remora holsters. For the mag that’s fine so long as the mag pouch/holster is capable of holding the mag firmly in place. If it slips and slides and the mag can fall out then there’s a problem. Remember, having a spare mag means being able to readily access it should the occasion arise.
Now, you guys probably think I harp on holsters a lot (for this Remora I’ll leave you to your own discussion). And hey, we all have boxes – or multiple boxes – of discarded holsters. Sometimes it’s a matter of finding the right fit and sometimes it’s something else.
Part of the process of growing and learning as gun owners is understanding what is and isn’t safe and/or what is and isn’t functional. If I do nothing else here at TTAG – and now I’ve opened myself to some wonderful commentary – I want to work to keep you guys safe. Whether that means suggesting training drills or methods or saying hey, you need a more secure holster, it’s all part of being safe.
What do you guys feel makes a holster safe and secure?
