Why a Battle Belt Holster

Holster rides high against the IBA
For me my regular holsters have a high draw, which is why they conceal awesome.  But when at the range training or training with all gear necessary for combat, the high draw is a pain, it gets in the way.  When you attach it to a battle belt it still gets in the way.  If you are a big dude like me with long arms, it is a pain.

If you don't have a battle belt yet, you should.  If you get to the range at least once a quarter, it is worth it.  No more trying to fit your holster and magazine carriers into the perfect position in between belt loops.  No more sharing holsters and belts when your so called "training" partners show up in shorts without a belt.  The gear is set, all you do is put on and go.  When it is your turn to be timer man or reset target guy, you can take off your gear and have it back on in an instance.

Battle Belts are awesome, it doesn't matter if you are playing Airsoft or  on an Air Assault mission in the middle of the Hindu Kush.  They work and are convenient.

One problem is how to attach a regular belt holster (unless you own a VTAC or wait until all companies make one that is similar), and how to adjust the height to clear your gear.  You could go to a thigh holster but wearing a thigh holster while on patrol for 12 hours walking up the most god forsaken mountains on earth sucks bad.

 My Battle Belt holster is one solution, with 2 adjustable retention points and 3 height adjustments.  It can accommodate any battle belt with either molle-loks or tek-lok.

It is great for a day at the range or on patrol in a far far distant land.
