My friends over at 1800GunsAndAmmo sent me a couple of holster for review. This first one, I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical of. It’s essentially a $25 holster with kind of a funky design. In the scheme of things, can it really be a holster worth paying attention to?
Despite my hesitancy, I tried it out. I was surprised by how comfortable it was. I expected to be poked like a living pin cushion but I wasn’t violated in any way. Many times the narrow distance between the belt loops ends up feeling extra heavy on the hip. I didn’t notice that at all and I had them send me one for a full sized 1911. That’s right kids…no light weight polymer, aluminum anything…100% American Steel.
The material this holster is made of can only be described as Rubbermaid for CCW. Seriously though, I looked up everything on BladeTech and no mention of what this stuff is. It keeps it’s shape well but is still on the rubber hybrid class of materials. As much as that sounds ridiculous I really think this holster has a place in the market. You see, down here in South Texas it’s really hot and really humid in the summer. Having a holster that you don’t have to worry about sweat damage can be a valuable find.
So, give BladeTech and the guys over at 1800GunsAndAmmo.com a try. I think it will serve you well.
