That’s great and all, but what am I going to use this universal holster FOR, anyway?
A lot of different things, actually.
For one, you could use it as an IWB holster. It has a belt clip, and was designed with this purpose as an intended use. You can slip it into the waistband, slide the clip over your belt and head out the door.
It can also be used as a protective sleeve for storage, in case you wanted to protect your pistol when you place it in a safe or other safe storage device.
You could also utilize it as a pocket holster, as the soft fabric and protective layer of TPE makes it uniquely well-suited to this application, more so than many other soft pocket holsters.
However, there are a few caveats to be aware of.
You know that this holster doesn’t have the hard molded retention shell found on all of our other holsters. This means that the fitment isn’t as precise. This also means that using the holster will not be the same.
For instance, you can draw from the Grip Tuck, but you won’t be able to reholster your pistol. You will need to take your holster out of the waistband, reholster the pistol, and then re-insert the gun into the waistband. This will make training…a little weird.
Compared to our other holsters, you might notice a little less stability, a little less counterforce on the draw. Having two belt hooks and a wide base does create a more stable platform to draw from and reholster, after all.
Retention will not be adjustable. Not that it isn’t safe to carry with – we extensively test all holsters for function, and rest assured the Grip Tuck is safe to carry with – but you can’t tighten or loosen the holster at all.
Care is easy, as all you need do is hand-wash the holster and let it air dry. In extreme cases, you can wash on the delicate cycle and dry on the lowest-heat setting of your drier, but hand washing is preferred.
So, you trade a bit of the functional range of other IWB holsters, that’s true.
However, you still get a secure, comfortable carry…and that’s what Alien Gear Holsters is all about.
