A friend forwarded me this video on Facebook:
After watching the video, my first and immediate thought was “that’s not a holster, it’s just a strip of leather!” My second thought was “what a dangerous and silly way to carry a gun.”
There are so many things wrong with this, it’s difficult to find one to start with. Let’s go with this: the retention on that is terrible. The only thing that keeps your gun from quite literally falling on the floor is the tightness of your belt. That means that all sorts of shifting and movement is possible on the part of the gun. I guarantee it won’t present the gun in a consistent position for draw.
The video review states that it’s $10, which is too much money for something like that. You’d be better off carrying mexican style than with this thing, and if your choice is “tuck the gun in my waistband like Martin Riggs” or “spend 10 dollars on this piece of leather”, just save yourself the 10 bucks and go buy a couple of big macs or something.
This piece of leather (I refuse to call it a holster) takes the derp of a universal holster to a whole new level. It’s just…why would you buy this? At least with a 10 dollar nylon sausage sack you can have something that works as a makeshift pistol case for transporting your handguns, but with this thing you can’t even do that. I don’t understand what would posses someone to buy this. I really don’t. I note with mild optimism that this…thing isn’t on Tagua’s website, so maybe someone came to their senses and decided to not sell it.
