“I am truly impressed by this holster. I have a kydex paddle holster for OWB of the same brand so I thought I would try this out. For years, I have been carrying at 6 o’clock with an Uncle Mike’s size 16 for my Pt111 G2. My holster has started to stretch and wear so I decided to try something different. What I like about this holster is that it is rigid and adjustable. I have tried it in a lot of positions but find that it is most comfortable at 4 or 5 o’clock. I have a faster draw than carrying at 6 o’clock because I do not have to turn my hand around to grab from a left handed IWB holster. I really do not see the difference from the ones that cost 5 times as much. One tip I would give is that it is not a bad idea to loosen it up so that the holster doesn’t pull off of your belt when drawing. Don’t worry, your firearm isn’t going to fall out. Great holster at a great price!”Range of motion in the clip mount was sufficient to allow for comfort when seated. I did have to drill another hole to mount the mod wing; but this was expected, as there are no standards for retention screw bolt patterns between holster manufacturers.
Adjustability on the retention screws was more than adequate. The clip holds well over a belt, decent without a belt. Harry’s metal clip is much tighter without a belt; but it is a bear to clip onto my jeans.”
Competition holsters are chosen to follow the rules of specific competitions, divisions and classes. Speed, consistency and flexibility are all important factors for consideration by competition shooters. Visit our Competition page for a detailed breakdown of the types of competitions and some of the recommended holster models.Safariland® and Bianchi® design and manufacture high-quality holsters for for a wide range of markets. Here is an overview of some of the different types of holsters and the people they’re designed for.
Tactical holsters typically refer to a thigh rig mounted holster. The thigh rig comes with either a double strap shroud, single strap shroud or a mini shroud. Tactical holsters were initially intended for military use, and as part of the specifications the holster is designed to break away from the leg shroud at 140psi. This safeguard was established in the event that if the holster was caught up during a jump etc., the holster would break away and allow the individual to be free from any restraints.
Plainclothes or detective holsters are concealment based. These are holsters with concealment mounts, and you’ll see paddles, or paddle ride UBLs or belt slide kits. Plainclothes officers may choose to have concealed, or half-concealed holsters. Alternatively, some officers are unconcerned with printing and are more interested in a comfortable fit, especially if they are spending more time doing administrative duties.
Everyday Carry holsters include open carry and concealable holsters for professional and personal protection. Considerations include comfort, concealability, retention level, and the types of activities you do in your daily routine.
Patrol or duty holsters are generally going to be belt and hip mounted. These are the Safariland 6000 or 7000 model series duty holsters. The holster will use some form of UBL – Universal Belt Loop, and offer Level I – IV Retention.
Bottom line is that modern body armor with ballistic plate inserts can survive multiple direct hits from high powered cartridges like a .338 magnum or .458 SOCOM. It’s going to leave a baseball sized dent in your rib cage and toss you across the parking lot, but if you get proper medical attention in time and your heart don’t rupture from the hydrostatic shock, you’ll live. You’ll likely wish you hadn’t though. A chill laid back, coach flying, surfer he may be…but he is also a willing participant in the culture that every day leads to the completely unnecessary deaths of over 100 Americans. The media can’t address the fact that drugs take a major role in these shootings so they have to blame something else, such as the weapon or the culture. But you can’t ban all guns outright because it would cause people to starve, so either nothing happens or some minimal gun regulation gets passed that barely bans anything, and then we all forget about it until the next shooting.
John Wick is just a fun action movie. People all over the world manage to watch it without murdering each other. You can’t blame your societal problems and messed up relationship with guns on Keanu Reeves.
Yes. Kids running around with snap cap revolvers and Red Rider BB guns was harmless. No Injuns got shot, no cowboys got scalped and no stagecoaches got robbed as a result of the “depictions”.
People who have taken a bullet wearing one of these vests equate it to getting hit with a hammer. They also get a really bad bruise. But you will likely be able to continue whatever you were doing subject to the impact of that imaginary hammer. Of course, a hammer could knock you down, which could cause other injuries or knock the wind out of you. Users report a large round causes extremely sharp pain and will probably stun you for a few seconds. The heat will also sometimes leave a small burn mark, and it is possible to have ruptured internal organs from such a shot. The closer the range, the worse it is for you, as you might expect. You can see some testing on a fake body full of ballistic gel in the video below.
In the movies, the suits supposedly have Kevlar in them just like a real piece of ballistic body armor. The problem is, Kevlar is bulky. However, most of the real body armor you see — like a vest on a SWAT team operative — is made from Kevlar or similar ballistic fibers like Twaron, Goldflex, or Dyneema. They also have plates made of metal or ceramic.The problem is, those vests don’t look like Mr. Wick’s wardrobe at all. There are, however, options. The Hacksmith – Hackaday alum [James Hobson] — has a prototype Kevlar suit that supposedly cost a little under $100,000 to produce. It isn’t certified but it appears to work, as you can see in the video below.
I got an extended amount of hate on Slashdot a while back when I pointed out the fact that if all privately owned firearms disappeared tomorrow the person intent on doing harm would simply find another method of doing so. The examples of UK gun control pushing the IRA to switch to bomb making and the Japanese cult releasing poison gas on the subway were lost on them.We aren’t sure if the Garrison tech is 3D printed, but we have seen 3D-printed carbon ballistic shielding. If you think Kevlar only protects against bullets, ask [Dan Maloney] about that.
Funny that you mention food. There is a scene in one of the films that compares a wine tasting to shopping for guns. Exposure is important in both positive and negative ways. In this case it is quite negative. Let’s be clear, I’m not against guns. I myself an am excellent marksman and believe in an armed society…but it should be a last resort that is not celebrated. It should be quietly and reluctantly practiced as a last resort.
What holster do most police use?
Plainclothes LAW ENFORCEMENT holsters Plainclothes or detective holsters are concealment based. These are holsters with concealment mounts, and you’ll see paddles, or paddle ride UBLs or belt slide kits. Plainclothes officers may choose to have concealed, or half-concealed holsters.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave, And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.People who deal with these don’t like to call them “bulletproof” vests because they are actually “bullet resistant.” A variety of factors can combine to put a hole in the user of even the best armor. It helps to have slower and softer bullets. Ballistic fibers make something akin to a net that absorbs the bullet’s impact and spreads it out.Bottom line, PEOPLE are the cause of all of this. Until you fix that, the violence is going to continue no matter what tool is available. The 2001 September 11th attacks were carried out with box cutters and set off 20 years of war. We’re still counting the civilian casualties. The Oklahoma federal building was a attacked with a fertilizer bomb, are all farmers suddenly potential terrorists?.
Personally also don’t see how an action movie or video game can have anything at all to do promoting violence, or are you saying that every cooking show is promoting excessive eating and obesity?!?! An action movie is clearly fantasy, and like all fiction not meant to be taken as an instruction manual. Also more often than not the plot tends to be ‘Villain(s) use violence indiscriminately for some short term gains but end up dead or in prison after putting the ‘hero(s)’ through some form of hell’ – in effect a moral story warning on the dangers of exactly what you claim they encourage.
John Wick films don’t “normalize gun violence”, they normalize fun to watch, fictionalized action in a make believe universe. It’s basically the modern day equivalent of a cowboys and Indians shoot’em up. Over the top and totally unrealistic, not to be taken seriously in any way – just sit back and enjoy the cinematic experience. I think that’s fairly obvious to anyone that doesn’t have a stick up their butt.It should be just like playing cards, video games, D&D, or car modding and racing etc – a group of like minded individuals who can freely but responsibly (so safely at a gun range, hunting in season etc) enjoy their hobby openly. And that is what shooting tends to be in gun loving nations that are not the USA it seems to me. The folks that own them really know what they are doing (and usually it seems have to long before they are allowed to own one) and only have them because it is their hobby, you don’t have lots of folks going around armed all the time, or with what are effectively weapons of war in the boot…
Yep. I keep remembering the reporter in the Korean area of L.A. showing the shop owners armed to the teeth, the rioters avoiding them, and her crying; “why isn’t someone taking these guns away from them”.
You can throw around all the statistics you want on gun violence, but the data is bad no matter which side of the argument you fall on. Politicians cherry pick that data and build the surveys to suit their ends. They direct law enforcement how and what to record to fit their agenda. 40,000 including suicides? Self defense? Police actions? Accidents? Criminal on criminal violence? So are potential rape victims supposed to let it happen instead of fighting back when attacked by someone of significantly greater size? Should we criminalize any and all potential means of suicide? Lets make violence illegal first and see what that does to the data.First off, houseplants are a weak straw-man argument at best. Second, its politically, financially, and practically impossible to rid the U.S. (let alone the world) of guns. The cost alone would cut way too deep into already stressed budgets. More over, assuming that we’re all safer, or going to become instantly better humans if all the dangerous things disappear over night, is a naive if not juvenile argument.
What holster does LAPD Swat use?
The Dropleg is our proudest invention of craftsmanship, worn by LAPD SWAT, LAPD K9, LAPD Bomb Squad, LA County Sheriff, and numerous other Law Enforcement teams worldwide.
Most “firearms instructors”…. aren’t anything at all in reality. The inept teach center of mass. Its because its all they are capable of. Center of mass ineptitude always kills. Reality teaches its not necessary to kill every single time. When a person is trained they don’t have to resort to reactionary fear driven return fire aimed to kill.
And you think full prohibition of, a now easily manufactured, inanimate object is going suddenly save lives. Why not? It has clearly worked for substance abuse and was a raging success with alcohol in the 1920s.
The John Wick movies are a leader in normalizing gun violence in our country and Keanu Reeves, despite his good guy public persona, has made millions of dollars promoting violence. As a person who grew up in the 80s I love Bill and Ted as much as anyone else but I’m not fooled by the PR campaign to deflect responsibility away from Mr Reeves’” Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. They’re a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people… will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. “Heavier stuff like the .50 BMG and its associated family of cartridges… uh, no. The shockwave of a bullet passing too close is enough to kill a person, never mind actually being hit by one. Cartridges variations can deliver 10k to 15k foot-pounds of force, or 14k to 20k Joules of energy on impact. Direct strikes amputate legs and tear torsos apart. I find the numbers on the SLAP rounds a bit over the top.Aiming for the head or the limbs are among the first things you are told NOT to do by a firearms instructor. Unless you are a highly skilled competitive shooter, you are most likely going to miss. Even snipers aim for center mass.
You can keep running, firing, or karate kicking while the suit takes all of the bullets. You can even pull your jacket up over your face if you want to protect that million-dollar smile. Physics, of course, tells us that a suit like this is pretty much impossible. Except that they actually exist. Granted, the real-life suits don’t have the magic physics-defying powers of Mr. Wick’s suit, but if you have the cash, you can get a smart-looking suit that protects you from getting killed by a bullet.
Same thing happened with the combination of allowing BLM/ANTIFA rioters to roam free and politicians letting violent felons out of prison because of Covid. But, of course, those surrounded by armed private security (politicians, Hollywood) were the first ones screaming about people buying guns to protect their families and businesses. Under the same circumstances those here advocating for limits on private gun ownership would do the same. Those that say they wouldn’t aren’t being honest with themselves or they don’t give two shits about their families. Guns are a problem, yes, one that should be at the very least monitored if not practically regulated by publicly available training. However, society (advertising, shitty absentee parenting, and politicians looking for cheap votes) absolving people of personal accountability while pushing “relative morality” are far more harmful than guns. And I really don’t see comparing wine tasting and gun shopping as a problem – in both cases the point is you are seeking the one you like best. In exactly the same way a car nut might try the modern mid-engine, lightweight, high revving, and refined Japanese sports car, the older classic European saloon/hatchback, and still decide they really would rather have the monstrously heavy, loud, primitive in comparison 60’s American muscle car or pickup truck… Nothing wrong with that choice for your hobby – even most eco warrior types wouldn’t care if your free time is spent with something with such a voracious appetite for petrol, or at least they will often prove themselves to be hypocritical if they do and still complain at you.You know what’s changed in the last few decades? The mass prescribing of of SSRIs to troubled youths and adults. These are substances well known for a potential side effect to induce depressive, homicidal, and suicidal tendencies. But you’ll never see any news outlets discussing what drugs the shooters were on at the time of the incidents, because the drug makers provide most of the advertising revenue. Really don’t see how an article on the nature of ‘bullet proof’ has anything to do with gun violence – you can’t shoot somebody with a kevlar lined suit or ballistic vest. The laws of physics don’t change no matter how inconvenient they are. While you might be able to dress like John Wick, we don’t think you are going to take the hailstorm of bullets, blades, and falls that he does in the movies without some serious damage. And if you decide to hold your bulletproof lapel over your face, don’t blame us when the fabric is ripped violently out of your hand on impact.
If you actually want to buy something, you have to give up on Kevlar and go with carbon nanotubes from Garrison. We have a feeling if you have to ask the price of this, you probably aren’t going to get one.
Its disappointing to see this type of content on Hackaday. There are plenty of other forums dedicated to the military cosplay that has replaced responsible gun ownership in our society.
What holster do Navy Seals use?
In the waistband. Option with this pistol the 2-2-6. This is a t-rex arms. In the waistband. Holster appendix carry i’ve used this in iraq carrying a 2-2-6 full-size pistol and a 20-round mag.
The most deadly school massacre in American history was perpetrated with dynamite in (IIRC) the 1920s by an insane school board member. He screwed up the fuses and only succeeded in blowing up half the school.You forget that once the passengers of the 9/11 attacks knew what was going on the box cutters weren’t enough and they took they plane back. WE went to war because Bush and Cheney wanted to finish what Bush 1 started,The high prevalence of innocent gun deaths in the United States is a recent phenomenon. There has always been access to guns and positive portrayals of gun violence in American culture. It’s so entrenched that warfare and firearms are explicitly mentioned in the national anthem. But somehow previous generations didn’t have a problem with mass shooters, despite being surrounded by gun culture.
Now, so I can attempt to be somewhat on topic, John Wick. Realistic? Please. And not every movie has to be. These films are simple fun that I don’t have to have a degree in psychology or need to think deep thoughts about. I get my ticket and popcorn and relax for a couple of hours. That is what they’re for; entertainment. Don’t like this kind of film? Don’t go.This is the definition of insanity and I want to stop having these discussions. Guns aren’t going anywhere. The solution is to stop drugging people to make them feel happy in a cold, uncaring society, and start giving citizens a reason to get out of bed.
Oddly enough, most bulletproof vests don’t do much against knives. They do make “stab vests,” and if you don’t mind bulk and expense, you can get special “multi-thread” vests. On the other hand, it will protect someone in a car wreck from the steering column.
If you’ve seen the John Wick movies, you’ve probably had to suspend your disbelief about many things, but the bulletproof suits are perhaps the hardest thing to swallow. They look like stylish suits but are impervious to just about anything at any range. What’s more is when you are hit, they seem to absorb all impact with no effect on the wearer at all.I appreciate that you want to stop having these discussions. But someday, gun ownership in the US will change. The constitution was written by people, not an infallible god. It is willful ignorance to compare the firearms available to the public today and the firearms of the past.The true causes of mass shootings are well-known, even if vehemently denied by some. Other developed countries have just as many SSRIs and John Wick movies as the US without the same level of mass shootings. Great, so it’s racist and classist. I’m definitely not on Reddit, or any other social media for that matter. Not looking to score points, simply voicing the disgust I feel for the attitude that gun violence is in fixable, part of American culture, etc. Strange that someone who supposedly speaks for an all-powerful deity has to rely upon bullet-proof material. Not at all strange that heads of state would want this stuff. And terrorists. And school children in America.The problem with gun violence like any violence is largely the people, with added risk the more readily available good weapons are – can’t use what you don’t have.
People all over the world don’t have have access to the millions of firearms we do in the US and their death rates by gun violence are a pittance of what ours our. Are you suggesting that Americans are just inherently more violent? Exposure matters, and exposure to dramatiscised unrealistic violence is not good.
There is no need for it to be reluctantly or quietly practised – the idea of ‘reluctantly practiced’ sounds like applying social stigma’s to shooting, and making it the sort of taboo that naturally drives the folks that are interested underground where the ‘normals’ and paper trail won’t have any idea who may or may not be mentally unstable and sitting on an arsenal.The Kentucky Ballistics Youtube channel did several segments with ballistic body armor against heavy game rifles and various other calibers at point blank range. If you can get past his silliness, of which there is plenty, he produces some interesting results.
What I meant is that practicing to kill another human being should be done reluctantly and without bravado. I agree that for some it may be or feel necessary to prepare for such a scenario, it is even admirable to make sure you are properly trained so that you are prepared to protect yourself, your family, your community. But to relish it, to celebrate it, goes against all that we know about how killing another person affects the shooter. Ask a combat veteran how if they ever killed anyone and see what kind of response you get.
It was impossible to go to the moon, until it wasn’t. So there is no way to accurately measure the human cost of firearms? I wonder why that is….could it be because the gun industry lobbies to keep it illegal for such comprehensive efforts to be undertaken?The main problem with the SSRI theory is that there’s approximately zero difference in the rates of SSRI users becoming mass shooters vs. the rest of the non-SSRI-using population. There is a higher percentage of SSRI users among mass shooters, only because they’re more likely to have been prescribed them for mental health issues.
The Native Americans have perhaps on the whole been treated in a more negative way, especially in their own backyard, but there is so much to admire about their cultures too. In the same way Johnny Depp’s mob of pirates have had fun with that concept and shown pirates are not all inhuman monster the way some depictions would have it. Or the crime related movies that show not all criminals are murderous, and WWII movies depicting not all Germans in Nazi Germany as bad people – even the ones in uniform.
Thats because they are teaching you to shoot against unarmored targets and/or using the phusical force of the bullet to temporarily daze and stop the target. Snipers have guns and ammunition that largely don’t care about most levels of body armor. ..and they still shoot at the head as evidenced by the large #s of helmet bullet examples from every war including the one in Ukraine.John Wick has also killed people with horses, library books, tomahawks and nunchucks. He once killed three man at a bar with a pencil. So I guess Keanu is also normalizing pencil and tomahawk violence, right?
During the L.A. riots, the first people crowding into the gun stores were the gun grabbers wanting to protect themselves and their families from the violent mobs intent on inflicting major league bodily harm on them. Somewhat ironic eh ? (crowds throwing molotiv cocktails, armed with baseball bats, tire irons and other improvised weapons).You don’t like guns, fine. Don’t get any, but how dare you even suggest others shouldn’t be allowed to protect themselves from violent offenders (armed with knives, bats, etc). God created man, Samue Colt made them equal…. oh wait, the gun grabbers don’t believe in God, and can’t even define what a woman is.

In 1980 the name of the company was changed to Galco International, and in 1983 the business was moved from Chicago to its present home in Phoenix, Arizona. Already famous for high quality and innovative designs, Galco gained worldwide notoriety when Don Johnson chose to wear the Jackass shoulder rig in the popular TV series “Miami Vice”. Now known as the Miami Classic, this shoulder rig continues to be the most famous, recognizable, and imitated (but never duplicated) shoulder holster rig ever made.
The particular leather items pictured here belong to an individual who was the last FBI special agent hired by Director Hoover on May 1, 1972—just hours before Hoover’s death. This special agent, who donated these items to The FBI Experience, served in the FBI for 44 years and has also been a visitor services representative for The FBI Experience.

This type of holster was designed and patented by Henry Lee “Hank” Sloan, who joined the FBI in 1935. He later became a firearms instructor at Quantico and by 1942 was placed in charge of firearms instruction. He retired in 1971.FBI cant simply refers to a specific angle at which your gun holster may be carried – usually tilted forward slightly, around 10-15 degrees. Not only does this cant angle make your weapon more accessible, but many find it easier and more comfortable to conceal.
Carrying at an FBI cant also makes concealing your weapon easier. When your holster is tilted forward, the grip of your pistol is pulled closer to your body, which can help prevent printing and make your gun less noticeable.*International Purchasers* Please note that international shipping is not included with any warranty or exchanges. Buyer must pay international shipping for all packages being sent to a location outside the USA. This does not include APO addresses as they are treated as being inside the USA.Sitting on your hip at a 10-15 degree angle, this position makes it easy to access your gun and makes it significantly more comfortable and concealable for many shooters.

Not only that, but the cant angle made it easier for them to conceal a weapon outside the waistband under a plainclothes jacket, as the angle naturally draws the grip of your gun closer to your body.Beyond that, the only way to really find out if an FBI cant holster is for you is to try one out to see if it meets your needs and personal preferences. Everything from the firearm you carry to your body type can affect how well this holster cant works for you, so you’ll need to try it for yourself.FBI cant – it sounds cool, looks cool, and feels cool. But if you aren’t familiar with the term, you may be wondering what it is and whether it’s something you should try.First, this holster cant angle only works if you plan to carry in the 3-5 o’clock position. So if you typically carry elsewhere, this may not be your tactic.
Another benefit of the FBI cant is that it’s easier to move and run while carrying a gun. Again, having that grip close to your body reduces the risk of it getting caught on clothing or other objects, which can make it easier to move around and allows you to maintain a low profile.Failing to train properly with an FBI cant holster can result in slower draw times and can even put you at risk of flagging yourself or someone else, or experiencing an accidental discharge.
What holster does James Bond use?

For adjustable holsters that can be worn at an FBI cant angle, or up to 30 degrees forward or reverse, check out our number one selling IWB LightTuck™, hybrid IWB RapidTuck™, and OWB ProDraw™ paddle holster.Not only that, but having the grip of your firearm closer to you is noticeably more comfortable. When your holster is attached to your belt at an angle, your gun is less likely to bump or rub against your body. This can make it more comfortable to carry for long periods, and can also help prevent chafing and skin irritation. This particular cant angle was first popularized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation back in the 1980s. During that time, FBI agents started carrying their pistols tilted forward instead of straight down, making them more comfortable to wear while sitting at a desk or in a vehicle. Another potential issue is that while it makes drawing your weapon easier, it can actually make reholstering harder. When the opening of your holster is at an angle, it’s more challenging to find and re-insert your gun when it needs to be secured. This can be mitigated with training and practice, but it is still something to keep in mind.
The FBI cant angle is a popular carry method for law enforcement and civilian shooters alike. Simply put, the term refers to carrying your gun at a slight forward angle, typically around 10-15 degrees in the 3-5 o’clock carry positions.

What is the FBI cant angle?
What is FBI Cant? The FBI cant angle is a popular carry method for law enforcement and civilian shooters alike. Simply put, the term refers to carrying your gun at a slight forward angle, typically around 10-15 degrees in the 3-5 o’clock carry positions.
Other law enforcement agencies quickly caught on, and the civilian market soon followed. Today, FBI cant is a commonly used and recommended carry angle for both IWB and OWB holsters.
Finally, carrying at an FBI cant requires plenty of training and practice to use safely and effectively. The forward tilt of the holster changes the dynamics of drawing and re-holstering the firearm, which requires adjustment and practice to ensure safe and effective use – something that you should be doing anyway, regardless of your carry setup.

Is John Wick armor real?
In the movies, the suits supposedly have Kevlar in them just like a real piece of ballistic body armor. The problem is, Kevlar is bulky. However, most of the real body armor you see — like a vest on a SWAT team operative — is made from Kevlar or similar ballistic fibers like Twaron, Goldflex, or Dyneema.
The FBI cant was popularized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the 1980s and has since become a popular holster setup among law enforcement and civilian shooters.First, the FBI cant angle may not be ideal for certain types of firearms or carry positions. If you carry appendix, for example, this cant angle will not only be uncomfortable, but it will also be extremely difficult to draw from.
Many concealed carriers swear by this cant angle, as it tends to be more comfortable and efficient to draw from than many other carry positions, as well as easier to conceal.

One of the main advantages of an FBI cant holster is that it makes drawing your gun significantly faster. The forward tilt of the holster makes it easier to reach your firearm and quickly draw it, which can be especially beneficial in high-stress situations where every second counts.[[# helpers.fullEscapedHTMLProductType ]][[/ helpers.fullEscapedHTMLProductType ]] [[# vendor ]] by [[# helpers.fullEscapedHTMLVendor ]][[/ helpers.fullEscapedHTMLVendor ]][[/ vendor ]]

Established in 1980, the Foundation provides support, primarily scholarships, to ensure that all the children of Special Operations personnel who have given their lives in service to our country, will be able to go to college.
In 2004, SIGARMS of Exeter, NH released a limited edition of specially serialized P-226 pistols produced to the exact same specifications as those which have been the official sidearm of the Navy SEALs since 1986. Designated SIG P226-9-NAVY, this unique version includes special phosphate corrosion-resistant finish on internal parts, contrast sights, a slide engraved with an anchor to designate them as Naval Special Warfare pistols, a unique serial # starting with NSW 0001, and certificate of authenticity.
The M11 Sig Sauer P-228 was introduced in 1989. It is a compact version of the Sig P-226, just 7.1 inches long and only 1.5 inches wide. The Navy SEALs and Special Boat Teams consider it a favorite, and use it as their standard carry pistol as it is small, light, durable, accurate and easy to conceal. The M11 is a recoil-operated, semi-automatic pistol that fires a 9mm NATO round in both single- and double-action modes from a 13-round magazine. To address individual medical needs this loadout utilizes the new US PALM Ankle IFAK. Seen in the picture it seems bulky, even cumbersome, but we’ve been pleasantly surprised to find that it isn’t so, at least not in typical day to day activities. Boot cut or baggier jeans conceal it nicely. Other items in this possible EDC (Every Day Carry) loadout are implements from: Glock, Bravo Concealment, Zero Tolerance Knives, SOG Knives and Tools, US PALM, Sig Sauer, 5.11 Tactical, Moleskine, Oakley, Magpul, Apple, In God We Must, Flagrant Beard, and several other places.We told you over the weekend that John Wick still has his dog; that’s good news. To celebrate we’re taking the opportunity to show off a possible EDC load-out centered around Wick’s holster. The former assassin is apparently using a Cherry Covert Ops Apparel Medina X in John Wick Chapter 2.
The Medina X BWB (Below the Waist Band) holster you see below was designed by Aaron Cohen, a former member of the IDF’s Duvdevan SOF unit. This particular holster is one of the very earliest models. It will not accommodate an RMR, which the new versions apparently do.
Later you can look the holster over, watch the video and make your own decision whether it’s tactical, tacticool or tactarded — as we ask that you actually watch the videos, think it through and discuss intelligently rather than adding to the level of derp already saturating the interwebz.
Duvdevan is known for running undercover and pseudo-ops style missions. The Medina X was designed to be a “deep cover holster” intended to make a weapon less obtrusive than from traditional appendix carry. It also features a small scabbard for an equally tiny knife from Ka-Bar.
Cohen helped train actor Keanu Reeves for the starring role, which explains the choice of holster. Reeves previously trained with retired LAPD SWAT officer Rick Lopez (who sadly passed away not too long ago) and more recently with Taran Butler.
Actually, technically the one you see here is the original Medina from over a year ago. It is different from the Medina X, as we’ll explain below, but remains functionally the same.
What are the Navy Seals favorite gun?
The M11 Sig Sauer P-228 was introduced in 1989. It is a compact version of the Sig P-226, just 7.1 inches long and only 1.5 inches wide.

Moving on; you need a decent belt if you’re going to carry a gun. That gorram flimsy-ass skinny-jean suitable thing the guy with the man-bun picked up at the Wal-Mart in Eavesdown is not going to cut it; today we went with the Flagrant Beard ‘Crazy Horse.’ There’s nothing frail or foolish about it and damn it makes you look good.To feed a blaster you need bullets, and in this case we’re doing so with two magazines and a box of Sig V-Crown Performance Ammunition. The ready magazine is from the Glock factory and has a Pearce Grip magazine extension. The second magazine is from Magpul and rides in the ankle rig (q.v.). Other things you’ll find us wearing or carrying in our pockets here are a Zero Tolerance ZT0456, brass paperweight, a Bravo Company Mk15 tritium watch, a double sided “state ring” from In God We Must, some beat-to-hell leather wallet we haven’t replaced yet, Moleskine notebook with flat Moleskine pen, 5.11 TPT EDC flashlight serving as a keychain, MultiCam Black Oakley Holbrooks, and an iPhone with Mophie Juice Pack case . Lastly, there’s an important coin carried for luck. The US PALM Ankle IFAK ships with a TK-4L TQ (tourniquet), CELOX Rapid Hemostatic Gauze Ribbon, 4 in. Trauma Bandage, Combat Medic Tape, and a pair of Nitrile gloves. We added a 5.11 TMT L2 flashlight and a SOG Knives Switch Plier to the mix, because while the small keychain light in the pocket works just fine as a task light, it’s not something you’d want to use in a fight, on the side of the road at a car crash, etc. The TMT L2 is lightweight, pushes 320 lumens, and will do so for a couple hours making it a good choice for a utility/fighting light. It and the Switch Plier (also a valuable tool, and not ridiculously overdone) are carried on the ankle to avoid having a half dozen different clips lining the outside of our pockets — and for that matter so we could still use our pockets.
