Glossary and ordering options

Kydex- Is a line of is a line of thermoplastic resilient to most elements.  It has a wide variety of applications, including for aircraft bulkhead (partition)s, firearm holsters, sheaths, and for knives.

Cant/Angle- The cant of which you choose is the angle that the holster will ride on your belt.  IWB holsters are adjustable. OWB holsters have a fixed cant. Muzzle straight down is a 0-degree cant.  10-degree forward tilt is our standard. 15 degrees is the standard FBI cant. The deciding factor of your cant will impact the ease of drawing you weapon smoothly. Taller people usually prefer 0 cant while those of average height are typically more comfortable with a forward angle.

Carry Position-  Depending on the shooter, the method of carry will be different. Imagine as a right-handed shooter your belt as a clock face. The strong-side is the position that rides at the 3 o'clock on your belt. Kidney is just that, riding at the 4:30 position. Appendix is the 1 to 2 o'clock position. SOB (small of the back) is at the 6 o'clock position. And finally, cross draw resides at the 11 o'clock. The opposite positions are true for the left-handed shooters out there.

Appendix Carry: Positioned on the beltline forward of the hip.

Kidney Carry: Positioned on the beltline behind the hip.

Strongside: Positioned directly on top of the hip.

Cross draw: Positioned forward of the opposite of the dominant side.

SOB: Small of the back

Body Shield- The body shield is intended to place contoured material between the weapon and the body of the shooter.

-No body shield has a matching lip with the outer layer of your holster.

-Mid Body Shield has the inner layer rise above the outer layer to both provide protection and allow the muzzle of you weapon a guide back into the holster.

-Full Body Shield rises to the back of the slide eliminating any contact between metal and skin.

Retention Options

-Hand fit- is just that. All our holsters with a hand fit are designed to click-lock into the holster without being overly abrasive to your guns finish. We emphasize on allowing the contour of you weapon to secure itself.  Ideal for concealed carry, at the range or in the comfort of your home. Designed for speed while keeping reasonable retention that won’t be knocked out of the holster.

-Adjustable- Adjustable tension device is installed at the front of the trigger guard. You can open it up for more speed. Or for city life, screw it down a couple of turns and provide a higher level of security from your weapon being easily taken by a threat.

-Level 2 Retention - Thumbreak- This is a simple robust button strap that straddles either side of your holster. The Thumbreak offers a rigid point of contact in order to release the button under pressure of your thumb. Excellent retention and required in some states for open carry of a pistol.

Specialty Cuts:

Speed Cut- Extremely low cut on the top strap of the holster with the exception of the front sight. Allows for quicker presentation of your firearm. Currently only available for EXFIL holster.

RMR Cut- Dedicated slot created to allow a weapon with a RMR or comparable red dot to securely fit holster without obstruction. Available on all models of holsters.

Mounting- The hardware you choose for your holster is very relevant to your method of carry, comfort and function. For instance, if you wish to wear your holster inside your waistband you will have to ask yourself, what type of clothing do you wear? Is it a suit and tie, tucked in polo or jeans and T shirt? Review the hardware related to each model in the examples below.

Our SHIV model is only available with hand fit retention and a reinforcement band on the slide and covering the muzzle. Both an adjustable cant tuck-able belt loop and 550 paracord are provided for mounting solutions.

The TOP IWB is typically carried strong side or kidney carry, the IWB is particularly well fitted for small to medium sized pistol for concealed carry. They can also function well for Appendix carry.

The Koni clip is a strong, single, quick 1.5" belt clip. Center mounted on the frame and slide at the mouth of the holster. It is adjustable from a 0 to 15-degree cant.

Adjustable cant (also 0-15 degree) tuck-able clip (Single and Dual). A belt loop strut that mounts beneath the trigger guard and rises to the waistline to mount to belt. Single strut is standard on the IWB but a second can be opted for to better disburse weight for heavier model of weapons.

The Ulti-clip 3 is an extremely strong tension clip that allows for almost universal mounting onto belts, MOLLE, clothing, bags. The list goes on. Easy carry option for the days you go without a belt.

The SCAB OWB. This type of holster places strong attention into contour and concealment. Ours is available for most semiautomatic pistols on the market.

Warloop (belt loop) size- 1.5" or 1.75": A fixed belt loop pair sized to the width of your belt.

MOLLE Lok:  Fully MOLLE compatible clip. Easy, spring loaded clip allows for rapid mounting and unmounting.

Pancake loops: 1.5" or 1.75": A fixed belt loop pair designed to disburse weight over a wider area of your waist and allow for lowest possible profile.

Our EXFIL, named in honor of a term for getting our troops out of harm’s way, is designed to put a working gun into working hands. With a resilient one piece design that utilizes your choice between proprietary two excellent modular mounting systems

BladeTech Mini Modular Mounting system- This mounting system offers greater flexibility in mounting with a speed clip set up. It was designed to fit sheaths, holsters, pouches and Tasers. The safety features include impact resistant construction and dual locking mechanisms. This system works well on the chest, the thigh or the belt area. This version is a smaller, lighter model of the parent design.

G Code RTI Hanger- This system implements a lockable Keymod peg and slot set up that is both rugged and quickly detachable. 3 aircraft grade aluminum hanger pegs fit snugly in impact resistant slot arrangement creating a hard-mounting point to your method of carry.

Both the BladeTech and G Code systems offer complete portability to your weapon. Whether on your person, automobile, desk, bedside, bathroom; wherever you place a mounting plate you can count on your EXFIL to be ready to fight or to get the hell out of Dodge.
