retention

Magnets… how do they work?  This is what innovation looks like:

I’m so charged up after reading these details:

  • UNIQUE DESIGN FOR MAX COMFORT: Smooth nylon-plastic flexes to fit contour of back and spreads pressure evenly to eliminate pressure points ** Gun never touches skin ** Comfortable when seated in chair or car (feels similar to lumbar support) ** Bands can be individually adjusted and moved to fit any body type ** Bands are thin and minimalist to prevent sweating
  • MAGNETIC RETENTION: Strong neodymium magnets hold gun in place ** Gun only comes out from sustained horizontal pull during draw ** Will never accidently release from sudden impact or jarring ** Draw gun in under 2 seconds while standing or sitting ** Pocket maintains shape for easy reholstering ** Designed for right hand draw
  • COMPLETE CONCEALMENT AND SAFETY: Gun disappears into recess of lower back under any basic shirt ** Gun stays in uncommon position which helps avoid detection ** Draw motion looks similar to pulling out wallet ** Muzzle never pointed at body while worn or drawn ** Trigger guard fully protected
  • FULL MOBILITY: Allows full unrestricted range of movement and mobility during standing, sitting, jogging, sprinting, or jumping ** Limited stretch elastic bands will automatically adjust to fit in different positions standing or sitting or during movement ** Wearable with any type of clothing (undershirt recommended for extended use) ** No belt or oversize jeans required ** Perfect for undercover or off-duty law enforcement
  • FITS MOST GUNS: Excellent fit for all Glocks and similar fullsize, compact, and subcompact polymer-framed semi-autos with streamlined controls ** NOT RECOMMENDED for heavy, metal frame guns or guns with large controls (decockers, manual safeties, or oversize slide releases) as commonly found on full-size 1911’s, sig sauer’s, or CZ’s. Slimmer handguns with large controls may still fit if overall width is similar to glock) ** NOT RECOMMENDED for use with revolvers

Incredible.  They call it the “Got-Your-Back-Holster”.  Sold at Amazon for $44 if you have a flock that needs protecting.  I’m sure that NRA t-shirt can be picked up from the NRA.  Man, I really need to make at least one cringe shirt; “Keeping good people free and bad people at bay” LOLOL man I love the sentiment obviously but holy man that’s weapons grade cringe.

Thoughts?

Blackhawk Serpa praising goes awry:

1:05 – “People that I know, who are actually been there done that.  They like this holster.”

2:29 – Whoops.  There’s the problem… and to think this video was supposed to promote and sell the holster, not teach people a lesson about what could happen.

*extremly Jamacian DJ voice* Pon de replay:

Cartman-Cheesy-PoofsI don’t have any extended experience with a Blackhawk Serpa, but adding the button just seems unnecessary and dangerous as demonstrated by someone who has *snicker* “Been there done that”.  A good kydex holster has plenty of retention as it is.  A button under stress seems like the next worst thing to a biometric enabled lock on a holster. “BUT MIKE, 3.193 MILLION POLICE FORCES AND OPERATIONAL UNITS WORLDWIDE USE THIS HOLSTER” <-- cool story brAh, I'm happy for them. Thoughts? Are the people who take issue with the paddle button "just not operator enough to understand"? Gat tip: KR Training via Monica SayUncle and Beau

Just like the Notorious B.I.G. said… or not:

Even though it’s airsoft crap, you get the point.  The end result is pretty funny.

If there is one thing I learned from this video it is that Epic Mealtime can not be duplicated.

That just looks painful. He probably forgot he was even carrying a gun after that.

For those of you that were a fan of the previous Winchester Ranger Ammo Comparison.  Here is a similar comparison chart for Speer Gold Dot ammunition:

Both charts are definitely worth taking into consideration when choosing you’re carry ammunition.

You might want to take a look at this when considering what caliber and type of ammo to carry.

I never realized that the expansion and retention varied so much even within the same caliber depending on the style of bullet you use.

If only there were as many options for 223 ammo.  One can dream…
