Deplorable Extremely Retarded Rifle Retention Platform (DERRRP)

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.

AR15-Rifle-Hip-HolsterI 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 am waiting to see what happens when you slip and fall and land on your rifle, also good luck taking a knee, what a stupid piece of kit.

Rob February 26, 2013 at 03:37 am

Gee golly I hope he comes out with a cross draw version as well!…….. (face palm)

Craig August 10, 2013 at 10:46 am

What about a shoulder holster version *snicker

Regulus February 26, 2013 at 06:11 am

wow thats gay

No One February 26, 2013 at 07:34 am

Finally a CCW holster for my AR.

-No One

He wouldn’t have to shoot me. I’d be too busy rolling on the ground laughing.

2Wheels February 26, 2013 at 08:56 am

Excuse me for my wild ignorance, but if I really need to switch to my secondary… Why would I waste time fumbling around trying to holster my rifle when I could simply let go? It IS on a sling ain’t it?

Taking up room on my belt for a silly rifle holster when a proper sling already does that job for you, that’s a waste.

LiquidFlorian February 26, 2013 at 02:25 pm

Yeah, this is a solution looking for a problem. I’m an airsofter, and this is too ridiculous even for some of the crap I see guys wear.

Michael December 11, 2013 at 12:59 pm

It’s less about when you need to transition (since then, as you said, time is of the essence) and more about when you need both hands free to climb, handcuff, search, etc.

MatthewJames February 26, 2013 at 09:00 am

Operator as fuck! Love the faux magpul angle reload. I so need one of these. Oh the things I could do with it.

Wolf February 26, 2013 at 09:27 am

I could see *maybe* one or two applications.

Nathan February 26, 2013 at 09:55 am

Is it wrong that I actually like this? The rifle’s already on a sling for quick transitioning , it simply does the same job as a weapon’s catch. Seems like something to stop it from flopping about, looks like an okay but unnecessary range accessory.

032125 February 26, 2013 at 01:26 pm

Not wrong. I don’t want one because I have no personal use for one, but I don’t see why this has the troll pit in a near-unanimous uproar. Like you said; weapons catches have been around for a while, and apparently get some usage.

Obi-Wan Kenobody February 26, 2013 at 10:47 am

I like how it totally turns you into a bumbling hunchback for that secondary draw.

Does it come in appendix carry?

jpcmt February 26, 2013 at 10:49 am

That was titling GOLD there Mike, well done on the DERRRRP acronym useage! lol

StarvinPilgrim February 26, 2013 at 01:06 pm

I second that! Well Done!

ENDO-Mike February 26, 2013 at 02:18 pm

haha thanks

Doug February 26, 2013 at 12:11 pm

I have a spinal cord injury and I can’t carry more than 5 pounds with my arms or shoulders I made a rig similar to this so I could carry my rifle at the range since I can’t sling. it if I wasn’t permanently crippled and unable to use a sling I would never even consider something like the derrrp

Operator Dynamics February 26, 2013 at 02:36 pm

Would operate with.

Church February 26, 2013 at 02:37 pm

Coming soon to a range near you, unfourtunately. I only see range idiots purchasing this…

Regulus February 26, 2013 at 05:17 pm

Chris Costa version coming in 3…2..1.

Only costs $675 with a cool little trident monogram on it…LMFAO

Megalomaniac February 26, 2013 at 07:52 pm

I’m an airsofter (and I own proper Firearms as well) and even I think this is retarded, serves no purpose what so ever.

Also nice knee holsters in the video.

MatthewJames February 26, 2013 at 10:10 pm

That back yard he is operating in is fantastic. I cannot stop watching this. It’s one of those “I wish I made this video” videos.

Oliver Tan February 26, 2013 at 11:06 pm

ankle holster version, stat

AKFTW February 26, 2013 at 11:23 pm

That nylon drop leg holster told me all I needed to know.

Franz February 27, 2013 at 12:31 am

A solution looking for a problem.

Jeep February 27, 2013 at 02:41 am

As an operator operating in airsoft operations, I find it ridiculous.
It’s just my opinion after all, but I think a 3-points sling is all you need to have your rifle secured when you want to switch to your secondary.
In airsoft it may be useful to get rid of a “long” rifle which has still ammo in it, for distance-related issues (pistols are less powerful than rifles, and thus are preferred in CQB or other short distances). In real life, I find it less relevant. If your rifle is out of ammo, sling it in your back as it’s no longer useful.

“Area clear of retards…”

Crunkleross February 28, 2013 at 01:35 pm

I’m waiting for the IWB and a SOB version for the tier one 7-11 operator.

Hunter57dor February 28, 2013 at 06:51 pm

call me crazy, but it could work.

it needs to have a better system for retantion, and the suspension could use work (something to put the weight up on the shoulders instead of the belt.)

but it could be a good concept.

as for applications, hmm well…….

MrMaigo March 1, 2013 at 05:01 am

I’ll admit to thinking it would be cool to have a rifle holster, but actually seeing it? Nope.

USSMunkfish March 3, 2013 at 09:25 pm

what is he, a mime?

Forstrom March 19, 2013 at 05:18 am

I think the worst part is he’s carrying a stupid AR-15.

Tracker August 11, 2013 at 08:51 am

That is a short barreled rifle requiring a C3 license and a stamp and that stupid thing still isn’t a practical way of carrying it. A full sized Ar-15 or M4 variant would not work at all.

Deimos November 12, 2013 at 03:45 pm

There is no such thing as a “C3 license”. Also, these and things like them have seen gobs of use by guys who stand around checkpoints all day and don’t want their rifle flopping around. Pretty sure the Israelis use something along the same lines.

Michael December 11, 2013 at 12:56 pm

As a tactical LE operator, I certainly see use for this. We currently use either home made it other forms of secondary retention for our rifles. The current systems take quite a bit of effort and time to use. Having this system set up so my rifle sits where I need it to and doesn’t move around too much would be invaluable when climbing ladders or going hands on with subjects. Since the OP can only seem to see this as some sort of stand alone “holster” rather than the intended use, it makes me feel like he doesn’t run a rifle for work.
I could care less how it will bear weight, since that is what my sling is for. This is simply to keep my long gun where I put it when I need to have my hands free.

What I would like to see is a model with a retention strap that could hold it more securely than the kydex friction retention alone.

Toby June 15, 2014 at 09:16 pm

As a 20 year SOF veteran I will absolutely agree that weapon retention is no laughing matter. I have developed, tested, patented, and ran in combat our system. The R2S is a no BS system that has yet to fail me on mission in Afghanistan and training. While our system has multiple uses and a million more coming we have put our systems through real combat vetting it as the only system in the world that can truly do what this product wishes it could. Our R2S is also not bulky or heavy and is corrosion and UV resistant. Take a look at or look us up on youtube. GOD bless.

Ron October 9, 2016 at 07:35 am

So, is a sling a holster? How does one really define a holster?

Johnny August 16, 2018 at 03:44 pm

Sad part is that if I want to qualify with my dept. to carry my AR pistol off-duty, I’m required to have a holster like this to do it (just to satisfy range requirements). They won’t let me use a drop leg holster or a sling. To shoot a total of 25 rds… I would never walk around with this on my hip.


Tom December 15, 2019 at 11:54 am

Wouldnt wear it, but would mount it to the interior door panel on my utv or jeep
