BlackHawk Diversion Carry Bags

Off-body carry is popular with those seeking to comfortably carry a larger gun or who are restricted because of their clothing. Now BlackHawk has three new off-body carry bags as part of the Diversion Carry lineup. These are very discreet and look like a messenger bag, a backpack or a tablet case. Made with 10.1-ounce Martexin Original Wax Army Duck canvas, they are extremely durable and water resistant.

BlackHawk is expanding its popular SERPA holster line with new models specifically for concealed carry. The new holster features an adjustable belt loop for waistband carry and a trigger-finger-release retention system. The SERPA CQC will fit the S&W M&P Shield, the 3.3 Springfield XD-S and the Glock 42 in both right-hand and left-hand models. For standard friction retention, BlackHawk is also producing the new Standard CQC Holster, which is the same size with the same features as its SERPA CQC holster and will fit the same handguns.

Blade-Tech Instructor’s Belt

No holster is complete without a proper gun belt, and Blade-Tech has started producing its Instructors Belt line with high-quality features like the rock-solid Cobra Buckle system. Currently available in black and tan colors, these 1.5-inch-wide nylon belts are easily adjustable for size thanks to a Velcro system and are reinforced with HDPE plastic for extra rigidity to prevent sagging.

Pocket carry is comfortable and suitable no matter what you wear or the weather you’re in, but a secure holster is essential. The new Recluse TS Front and Solo are unique clamshell designs specifically for the popular Glock 42. The Front is designed for front pants pockets and effectively hides the gun against printing. The Solo is ideal for a back or jacket pockets.

Belly bands and undershirt holsters work well for smaller and lighter handguns, but for a full-sized handgun the new unisex T-Sholster (T-Shirt Shoulder Holster) provides the solution. This deep concealment compression shirt is extremely sturdy with added support at the sides and shoulders. It features a Velcro retention system that offers 360-degree rotation on both sides for spare magazine pouches and the holster.
