Belt/Holster combo-who is it??




I have seen a website for someone who makes a holster that is built into a belt. The last time I saw it was a few years ago. I do not remember the name nor can I find it on Google.

Does anyone know the site or the name of the company? Also has anyone used this design??

Thanks for any help.

I've seen those, can't recall who makes 'em. They look pretty flimsy to me though. I can't imagine they would work very well with anything that weighs more than 16-18 oz. Found it.

Thanks that's it. I'm trying to find the right holster for a new shield. That holster might work for the Shield. I wouldn't carry my 1911's in it though.

Thanks again.

You're welcome. You're right, might be OK with a Shield.

I bought one of those a few years back, tried it for awhile and then gave up on it.

First problem is that where I like to wear my pistol is where the trousers belt loop invariably gets in the way. You can skip over the belt loop, but with something heavy like a 1911 you belt is going to sag.

The other problem is that pistol retention is not good. I am not into anything smaller than a Combat Commander or a 40 cal Hi Power and I found that when I sit the pistol gets pushed up out of the holster a bit, and if you sit and hit the arm of a chair or the center console of your vehicle, the pistol is likely to pop all the way out.

It might work better for someone who likes a shorter pistol, but for me it was on of those good ideas that didn't work out.


Your mileage may vary. I drive a hemi.

From Baron's, but usually off of the ground or my nightstand.
