This is why soft holsters are bad

Recommended Posts

Ouch, that's got to smart a bit.  Seems like more of a PMCS issue than a soft holster issue though.  That indentation looks to be old, should of been replaced some time ago.

Has much less to do with the relative hardness of the holster as it does the worn slap out-ness of the holster and lazy/cheapness of it's owner for either not recognizing the problem, fixing it, or both.

Got to maintain your tools. It looks like sometimes being stupid does hurt.

It's not just old, but a bad fit to begin with. Here's a G26 in a soft Remora. Notice how much more of the firearm (esp. the trigger guard) it covers than the one in the OP. I have no issues with using the soft Remora holster.

Right on the money here.  Appears to be a doctored pic (by a kydex mfgr perhaps)  for leather to be bent around the trigger like that.  Dont believe everything you see on the internet.

I know PMS means Pack My Saddlebags, but what is PMCS? Sorry, but I don't get out much anymore.

To me it looks like the guy was trying to re-holster the gun before exiting the vehicle. That's the only way I could explain that happening.

Yea sorry, after spending 21 years in the military its hard to give up the acronyms.   PMCS is preventive maintenance checks and services. He just plain did not maintain his equipment.

We always just called it PM in the army. Times change I reckon.

How worn out is that Galco to be as pliable as indicated in the photo?

Equipment and user fail.

 

Lotta folks use saddle soap, mink oil, whatever on leather to make it more soft and/or supple. Good idea maybe for jackets and furniture, not so much for holsters.

Not sure when that changed, but we (Army as well) always called it that.  

 

From the series of pictures it seems to be either a public safety ad or advertising for a "safer" holster.  The "wounded" guy sitting there for a pic and tragectory marker leads me to lean towards it being staged.

im guessing a BS photo,  If you just shot your a*s are you gonna sit there and pose for a picture with a dowel thru the bullet hole in the seat?

It most likely happened and that is a recreation of the scene. More than likely he was in the drivers seat anyways but they staged it on the passengers side to be more visible and easier to photograph

I've owned and handled lots of new and old leather holsters, non have been soft enough to recreate this. I agree, it smells of propaganda advertising.

That one's been around for quite some time; and while I'm not 100 % sure anymore it seems that I recall reading that one of the issues reveled was that the holster was not intended to carry a BLOCK and thus dangerously exposed too much trigger.... Thus it wasn't the fault of the gun or holster it was the fault between the earlobes that caused the dude to get shot in the azz....

Yep, that was around a few years back and if I remember correctly the guy was not injured but the round did go through the seat and floor of the vehicle and all he received was some powder burns.................. :up: :up:

Kinda looks like the holster was intentionally stuffed into the trigger guard to catch the trigger like that.....
