    Raven Concealment Glock utility holster

    I first played with one of these a few weeks back, paul gomez was trying one out and he let us check it out during a training session.

    not really sure what it's called but you get the idea.

    The para wraps around your belt (or belt loop, shifter, seat belt, etc etc etc) and holds it secure as shit.

    $20 ea is what they sell them for, theyre not on the website but you can call and order. If you do, tell them "BamBam" sent you. No, that's not me. :o

    I suck at MSpaint and I'm too fat to take a picture of it in my waist but I'll try to take a pic later. :o

    Paul gomez is part of the suarez chest thumping action network right?

    Personally, I don't get it either. In theory the advantage of mexican is supposed to be you can ditch the gun and not be left with a holster tied to your pants right?. Is having that funny little kydex vagina stuck to your pants better than having a holster? Holsters do a great many things more than cover the trigger and unless you have the need to be able to ditch a gun and left with no evidence clipped to your pants (and lets be honest, suarez newsletters aside, we probably dont), I think I'd rather have the holster.

    It's more of a utility holster than anything. i just called it mexican. :dunno:

    you can wrap it around anything. bed post, shifter, etc etc. yank and roll.

    and no, i was with him for about 10 hours and he never mentioned suarez' name that i can remember so i couldn't say he's part of that "network"

    That actually looks pretty slick. At the moment I have my XD .45 Tactical just sitting in a BladeTech holster next to my bed teetering on the TekLok. But unless a holster is affixed to your waist, it's cumbersome to draw. It'd be nice to anchor that lanyard to a solid object so the gun just sits on the table with the trigger guard secured (important since I always have one in the chamber) and all you have to do is grab the gun, get a full grip and go.

    I don't know if I would use that to mexican carry on my hip though. One thing I hate is a holster that restricts your movement and has the potential to drop a loaded, and chambered gun.

    It would be a safe way for a woman (or effeminate male) to carry in a purse (or manbag).


    I don't know why I decided to be so PC all of a sudden :dunno:

    I've carried with it for the past few days and even yesterday under my tucked shirt around the office here and it was smooth as butter.

    Old timey narcs in the seventies used to use something like this made out of a coat hanger.

    The only time I'd be carrying sans holster would be because it was a gun I just picked up and didn't have a holster for, but that's a pretty clever idea for tossing a gun into the console or something. Have to fold one up and try it out.

    I'll admit I'm a newb and don't exactly know how you'd use that. Obviously it covers the trigger, but then what? Tuck into your waistband? pockets?

    It just opens up the possibilities to do so. My biggest gripe with carrying "mexican" is that the trigger guard is exposed leaving the trigger susceptible to anything that could brush up against it/hook it. I carry "hot" (one in the chamber) so that wouldn't work for me.

    But with the trigger guard covered you can stow it in your backpack, pockets if they are big enough, night stand, safe or waistband in a manner that will not "print" the gun. When I leave a gun out for SD at home, I do so with it holstered. Well it sits kinda goofy in a BladeTech holster, or one of my pancake holsters, the gun is not proped up securely on a flat surface and can be bumped easier than if it was just sitting flat on a table.

    Mexican carry can only work if you can find a comfortable and most importantly "secure" way of doing so without any fear of dropping the gun, or restricting your movement making it painfully obvious that you are carrying. Concealed carry, means CONCEALED carry.

    Shay VanVlymen = ShackelMeNot

    ShackleMeNot has posted here on and off for years. He used to work for Tactical Response. He posted a couple of months back that he was leaving TR and I haven't seen him post since.

    The fact that he is apparently now designing gear is somewhat ironic considering his posts were always a mix of good information and chastisement for people spending/focusing too much on gear and not enough on training.

    irony, it has it :mamoru:

    Human beings are fun to watch, if you watch carefully and long enough, we eventually contradict everything we've ever said through the course of a well lived life. :)

    lol i returned my m-tac for the rcs. :bowdown:

    I hate the new IWB overhooks though. They are so damn stiff compared to the older version. Hard to pry to remove or put holster onto belt. But again, they might have redesigned it because I cracked my one of my old overhooks. :hsd:

    I wish I had seen this sooner.

    I have never written anywhere that gear is not important. Good gear is important.

    The knowledge in your head and your ability to perform under stress matter more than what gear you own. Gear simply supports and augments your ability to fight.

    Its like a holster in that you have to affix something to your pants, but it offers half or less of the functionality of a holster! Buy one today!
