Wait, what?! I guess I didn’t get the memo. Watch this vid:
Yea you see those operators “training” to jam the handgun back into the holster robotically while keeping their eyes on the threat. This raises a number of questions in my mind… primarily, if there is still a “threat” why are you putting your gun away? Doing it quickly, and blindly, only makes this video and training all that much more ridiculous in my mind. Why not spin it on your finger, and toss it up in the air too while you’re at it? You’d have to of course practice that thousands of times though, then it would be perfectly safe according to them. What’s the hurry to get the gun out of sight? It’s not like they are all wearing tactical speedos either, so the chance of a piece of fabric ending up in the trigger guard sooner or later is pretty good.
Someone please save the video and upload it to youtube before it disappears? The derp needs to be saved for posterity… think of the children.
The icing on the cake are the comments on facebook, where the training company HammerFour fully defends that this practice is perfectly safe and necessary. Frankly I don’t need any more holes in my body to take care of, and a permanent pimp limp just doesn’t fit my character.
Oh wait… it’s actually called SARRP (Special Application Rifle Retention Platform)… my bad:
I’m sure airsoft operators alone will make this guy rich beyond his wildest dreams. I just don’t see sales to professionals who actually carry AR-15s around for work happening.
I don’t care what make/model of operator AF SBR you own… those things are NOT that light, so you’re not going to want to have it on your hip for an extended period of time. I want to see him run with that thing on!
Honestly though if it’s like $30-60 I’m sure a lot range operators will buy them for fun. I was extra harsh in the title of the post, but I just really wanted to massage DERP into an acronym related to this… mission accomplished.
Thoughts? I know some of you guys are thinking “I hope he makes a left hand version too… I want one SBR on each hip!”
I can’t believe I never considered laser engraving as a way to step my holster game up. I’ve always been big into tonal color combos. That engraving appears to just matte the ABS’s regular shiny finish.
A holster idea a one-product Spanish company thinks is so innovative, they named their company Eureka:
R O F L
Let me just put it out there that I see absolutely no reason for anyone to carry a modern handgun without one in the chamber.
+1 for the good looking Spanish product rep / police officer, even though she obviously shoots like a total newb judging by the video.
-1 for the lame motorcycle drive-by shooting
This video gives you a better look at how the holster operates with different brands of handguns:
2:04 – Oh LAWD.. did he just eject a live round with his entire hand in front of the barrel? I sure hope that was a snap cap or an inert round; bad practice though either way.
2:45 – Again… Sure doesn’t look like a snap cap. Only hope now is an inert round.
3:12 – Primer missing… I can rest easy. (hahah I was actually going to delete these last 3 lines once I saw this, but I figured one of you guys would freak out in the comments too)
You might remember that the Russians have a similar holster for their Makarov pistols (Because the spetsnaz are obviously also so damn high-speed). Theirs though you can push the gun straight through, unlike this Spanish one where you have to push down to load the firearm, then yank back up on it to get it out of the holster. My guess is the “innovation” in this Spanish one which they think is patentable is that aspect alone.
In addition, what an absolutely excruciating logo they have (pictured right). LOL a glowing brain inside a globe, with blue lightening coming out of it. ROFL I couldn’t even make stuff like that up. I think I threw up a bit in my mouth.
Known as the FMS Magazine Pouch. WTF does FMS mean you ask? Well kind sir, Bravo Concealment decided it would be cool to bring shame to the sanctity of acronyms by making FMS – FPS Russia Mag-dump System. *smh* Sure FPS Russia pimps their products to his tween crowd on the regular, but I don’t think the full grown operator demographic that is spending $135 on this holster are going to be impressed by the fake Russian branding.
I’ve worked with Kydex, and it’s not rocket science. 40-45 calendar days (stated on the website) to ship an order seems excessive. I’ve heard it has been like that for quite a while with Bravo Concealment, and I fail to understand why companies like this don’t evolve and do something to fix their efficiency problems. In a market where a majority of purchases would be made on impulse I think they are really shitting the bed. How many of you ever have said “Damn I need a holster… not now, but in a month and a half”?
Thoughts? Are you anticipating a need for one of these double rifle / double pistol holsters in a month and a half?
