Will someone please tell me what model of gun that is? I like the orange on the back of the grip.

Talk about remaining dangerous- with people running out and buying Vanguard holsters. What the article should say is it’s ‘more or less safe’, with the emphasis on being less safe. Perfect for a novice? : “about as close to sticking a pistol in your pants waistband as a holster can without sacrificing safety in the process? Hardly.

Chuck Haggard

Actually Mark, your entire description of the Vanguard is off base. That holster is as secure as any other friction style retention holster on the market.

Chuck, maybe you can clear up some concerns I have with the holster. Can it be safely drawn and reholstered without complete removal from the belt? How do you see this being worked into a training session at the range? Would you really recommend this to a novice? I can see uses for a retention style trigger guard, like safe storage in a bag, or for those times when deep concealement is the main concern.

Yes, one can easily and safely draw from this holster.

It is in fact designed to be removed from the belt in most cases to allow reholstering. I would likely not recommend such a set-up for a novice, but even standard belt holsters are something novices need to work up to under instruction in order to be safe. Shooting one’s self while reholstering happens with all types of holsters.

BTW, sorry for the double tap reply, for some reason my original reply wasn’t showing up wehn I checked the page.

Your characterisation of the Vanguard holster is entirely off base, you could not be more wrong. You clearly have zero experience with that holster. It’s designed to cover the trigger guard and secure the handgun in the waistband, and it does these things very well, which makes it as safe as any other holster one might buy for IWB carry. Something like the Versacarry is NOT the same thing.

Mark Cornett


I stand corrected. Thanks for taking the time to respond. You’re right, they are NOT the same. That was one of my major concerns. I still have some reservations about the holster but appreciate your feedback and explanation.
