NRA Elite Pocket Holster
The Official NRA Store

Ever heard the saying, “Keep it in your pockets like Col. Rex Applegate?” No? Well, it’s definitely not a saying, but maybe the NRA Elite Pocket Holster will change all that.

Applegate carrying a revolver in his hip pocket while protecting President Franklin Roosevelt—the NRA Store created a pocket holster for concealed, confident and safe carry. It’s made of Toughtek’s non-slip material, so it stays in your pocket, and it’s lined with soft nylon to protect your firearm. The holster is angled at an upright position to keep your gun free of debris, and it’s manufactured with an ambidextrous design. The NRA Elite Pocket Holster will fit most pocket pistols.

IWB Leather Holster for Loaded Glock
IDF Holsters

IWB stands for “inside the waistband,” and the IWB Leather Holster for Loaded Glock was made for just that—and with carrying-on-the-ready in mind. The holster allows its wearer to have one round in the chamber of their Glock. To prevent an accidental discharge, designers incorporated a special Kydex device which keeps the trigger from moving while it’s in the holster. The IWB Leather Holster from IDF is made of natural lubricated leather processed without synthetic additives, and its cut, design and hand-crafted finish was made specifically for Glock model guns.

Nano IWB Holster
Blade-Tech Industries

Don’t let its name fool you. The Nano holster by Blade-Tech Industries might be ultra-thin, but it’s constructed of tough, durable materials.

The Nano features adjustable “Pull the Dot” snap IWB belt loops, and it will not collapse, so re-holstering is quick and easy. One tension screw is found on the holster to help reduce side profiling, yet its tension adjustment feature is just as customizable and secure as other Blade-Tech holsters. With a full-length sweat guard protecting your gun from perspiration, yet ensuring the gun handle is free for a strong and secure hold, the Nano is a confident choice for your daily holster.
