New holsters and mag carriers
« on: November 29, 2016, 05:27:05 PM »
Well guys I mentioned in another thread a few days or weeks ago;) That I've had several holster designs that weren't on the site but were available. Well I've been adding things to my site over the last couple days since I had some pictures etc and added a few new items here and there;)

The Overland holster: http://adamsholsters.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=50&product_id=197

The Overland mag carrier: http://adamsholsters.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=50&product_id=200

2x2x2 Revolver ammo carrier: http://adamsholsters.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=50&product_id=198

Speedloader/moonclip carrier: http://adamsholsters.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=50&product_id=199

And in the next little bit I'll be showing off a new gift card setup for anyone looking to give my holsters as a gift. The plan at this stage still needing to be fleshed out. Is a gift certificate laser engraved with the information on a piece of leather. That way it can be an ornament/gift of sorts along with being their way to redeem the holster. Still working on details but that's the plan and it should be pretty neat. Also on the same lines, I may or rather Sarah may be doing some cool laser engraved ornaments on her site here before Christmas if she has the time to come out here and learn the laser without taking too much of my time;)

So as those new things come up I'll mention them here;)

    Thanks sir;) That one has been one I've been working on the longest, lots of little changes over the years. I think Evil Jim had the first prototype of that likely 5ish years ago;) But the last 6 or so months I ironed out the final details and I'm confident in the design now. Actually thinking about it GunDoc might also have one of those, but I might be thinking of the Reinforced Texas. I know I sent him one of those but for some reason I'm thinking one of these as well;)

    Either way been working on this for a while, figured I've got some good pictures of it to use on the site may as well put it up;) I sometimes forget that if I don't put it up guys don't know what I can build. Sounds silly but when I'm working in the shop and posting pictures of new holster designs I sometimes forget that other people aren't watching pictures realizing changes in model etc always. So I'll try and keep things a bit more up to date;)

      I like the overland.  It appears it has loops to be carried either verticle or horizontal?

    The Overland is my take on the Avenger style rig. So it is a change from my Appalachian which also has it's origin in the Avenger style. Basically this one is designed for strong side carry rather than crossdraw. But just a mild cant rig, not dual position. So it's around 15 degree's maybe a touch less depending on the gun, which makes it more of a range/field rig than a concealment rig. Though it will do either, it doesn't hug as tight to the body as my Crossroads rig etc.

    So it's a good all around rig, and with the mouth reinforcement it's a tough rig for OWB carry, and works well for training etc.

    I'm very excited to see a speed loader holster  :thumbup1.

    How does it work? Split six style or external carry?

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    It's sort of an odd design of my own making. Closest to a split six and I've done those in the past. But all of these new ones are going to ride a kydex leg lacking a better term. Which runs the speedloader or moon clip up above the belt line and allows it to pivot off for removal. So you break the snap the outer layer of leather, along with the kydex and moonclip/speedloader bends away from the body. The back layer of leather is trapped between the belt and pants. Then you can pull the moonclip/speedloader off the kydex leg and use it. Works faster than the split six style in my experience and doesn't depend on the thickness of the belt like that style as well. I've got a split six style for my Taurus 44SPC and I've ruined two speedloaders because the belt is just a hair too thick and stresses the joints between the rounds in the HKS design. So this solves that and makes it easier to draw. I originally designed it for moon clips then adapted it to speedloaders. Since with moon clips you can't really ride the belt because then there isn't anything to grab onto to draw and the thickness of the belt becomes an issue again.

    So a mix;) But it works pretty dang well, and I've had quite a few guys that really like the way they work in practice.

    How concealable is it?

    I might have to get one  :cool.

    Pretty good I'd say about as good as the split design maybe a touch better. But it's pretty close, much better than putting them in front of the belt.

    Take care

    My ego is getting a trip when I pull up pics of Luke's holsters and they're pics of holsters he made for me ...Extremely happy with them and glad Luke doesn't mind batting around ideas with the customer.

    FWIW, I bought a couple of the speedloader/moonclips pouches -- moonclips in my case.  I haven't made time to do more than try them out but they are pretty slick.
    CaliforniaOf course I carry a gun!  It gives me a chance against the sinners and protection from the righteous.
