Best Magazine Holster I have Ever Worn. IDPA Reload Times Have Improved. Thank you GTL
My name is Troy Defew; I am a retired police officer, certified sniper, & former SWAT operative. I am the owner/operator of 81 Tactical Firearms Training in KY. I have been teaching firearms training classes for 17 years. I have worn many belts, holsters, and accessories made by many of the popular manufacturer's.
I recently obtained a 1-1/2” Tucker Gun Leather Belt, HF1 Holster, and Double Angled magazine pouch from Rob at Tucker Gun Leather.
When my package arrived, I immediately fell in love with the beauty of the entire rig, belt, holster, & magazine pouch. I chose black cherry with the swirl design. However, beautiful doesn’t mean comfortable.
So, I waited 2 weeks before posting my review so that I can provide an honest review after wearing the rig. I have worn it daily for 2 weeks now.
First, it is very comfortable. I was skeptic about being able to conceal my Kimber Ultra Carry 2, & 2 magazines. However, I was amazed when it disappeared under my T-shirt. I can wear my pistol and two magazines and conceal them under my normal sized shirt. This is great!
Next, is comfortable. It had to be comfortable enough to wear all day both, while walking and while driving.
Just as, and in my opinion, maybe more important is fit. How does my weapon fit the holster? This is where a custom made holster rules over a mass produced, one size fits several, holster. The fit is amazing. I expected a break in period. Nope, my Kimber fit like a glove instantly!
Although this holster is an open top design, the fit is so good, you do not have to worry about your weapon falling out. I have worn my rig in two IDPA matches so far. I have not had a single problem with my weapon falling out, or even moving while in the holster. If you have ever shot in an IDPA match, you know that it involves running and shooting from all sorts of positions and I have not had a single problem with my weapon moving around in the holster, it stays put. Great holster!!
In regards to the Angled Double Magazine Pouch: You can customize the fit of your magazines, since many who shoot Kimber purchase other manufacturer’s magazines. No worries, simply insert your mags, and tighten the tension screw on the front of both magazine pouches for a custom, snug fit. As I mentioned with the HF-1 Holster, the Slanted Double Magazine pouch is just as reliable. The slant or angle that they have is perfect. My reload times have improved since I started using this magazine pouch.
This rig in not only good enough for concealed carry. I also use it for IDPA match shooting as well.
Tucker Gun Leather has perfected the art of manufacturing their holsters and magazine pouches so that they hug tight against your waist, making it easy to conceal your weapon and two extra magazines, while being comfortable. It does not bind or rub your side and stomach.
I’ll sum this up by saying, if you want a holster, belt, magazine pouch, or an entire rig. You absolutely cannot go wrong with Tucker Gun Leather! I will put my name on their products, and will recommend their products to all of my student’s. All one has in law enforcement, and in business is ethics. I managed to keep mine throughout my law enforcement career and for 17 years in business. Therefore, I will not say that I like a product if I don’t.
I am saying I love my Tucker Gun Leather belt, holster, and magazine pouch.
Yes, it is more expensive than mass produced holsters, or a belt that you can buy at Wal-Mart. However, the difference between a mass produced holster, and a department store belt is as different as night and day.
If you want to replace your gear in a few years, buy one that is mass produced. If you want a rig that will last you a lifetime, that is beautiful and comfortable, call Rob at Tucker Gun Leather and place your order today. You will not be sorry!
Hey, if it’s good enough for the Texas Rangers, it’s good enough for us. After putting it to the test, I can honestly say that I am a customer for life. My weapons will be carried in Tucker Gun Leather, period.
