    My newest "Holster"

    I just received a new "ZACK CONCEALMENT HOLSTER" from One Source Tactical. Very interesting concept indeed.

    It only covers the trigger guard and trigger. A cord is attached to the holster and this is secured to your belt or belt loop. The weapon is kept inside your belt or in your pants and when drawn the "holster is pulled off the trigger guard by the cord and you're ready to rock and roll.

    I'll give it a try this weekend and see if I like it.

    Seems....interesting. However, I'm trying to figure out what advantage it has over a more traditional holster, aside from being thinner.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Being able to (safely) throw it into a jacket, bag, etc. and have a round in the chamber for one-not something that I'd certainly do with my Glocks anyway without a holster of some kind. Tie off the cord, draw it "normally" and you're good to go as the "holster" comes off in the draw stroke.

    I don't think it's a proper body holster replacement (or that its being presented sold that way), although it could be if nothing else was around. I do see these triggger cover holsters as a niche product, one that has its uses and is another good tool in the arsenal of CCW.

    Just courious; Isn't it illegal to carry a firearm IWB without a holster? I think for Georgia it has to be carried in some form of holster/retention device, but I could be wrong.

    You are correct. A holster is required, however I have not been able to find a definition of holster. I am looking though.

    Crucible... you are correct as a quick way to carry a Glock safely without the bulk of a holster this is a great idea.

    I don't think that a) it's being marketed as a jacket/bag holster (the description specifically calls for "tucking it in your belt" and b) that I would do this in any case.

    If you tied the string off and the weapon shifts in the bag, isn't it likely that the "holster" will get pulled off? And if the string isn't tied off, isn't this just a relatively weak trigger lock device? And do you really need to eliminate the "bulk" of a holster if it's in a bag?

    Maybe (just maybe) for a big jacket pocket, but I would still prefer a dedicated holster that helps keep the gun in one place and properly positioned for the draw. If the pocket is big enough for a G19, it's big enough for a pocket holster...

    All that said - if it works for you, go to town. And I love your Vyvyan avatar...

    Well, after careful trial and testing I'll have to say for me, it doesn't work. My Glock 30 felt insecure and a bit pokey if you get my drift. Steel against flesh is a bit uncomfortable. I'll stick with my Super Tuck.

    That being said, I find it's good for securing the trigger while on my night stand during the night.

    Here is the link to website he mentioned in his opening post.

    ZACK CONCEALMENT HOLSTER

    Interesting concept and I give the designer an "A" for effort, but a "D" for practically (IMO).

    Interesting none the less...

    Thanks for the heads up on this new and different "trigger guard holster".

    I think this is kinda neat, **IF** you are willing to do Israeli carry! I personally would never carry one in the chamber with either of these methods.
