Speaking of interesting combat/tactical pistol products at SHOT Show 2017, boutique tactical kydex pistol holster maker KMFJ LLC, run by one Larry Ryland, showed DefenseReview (DR) two new aircraft-grade kydex pistol holsters, the KMFJ DA BERSERKER Signature Series Glock 19/17/22 Holster, and the KMFJ IWB G26/19/17 Holster. We here at DR have been unabashed fans of KMFJ holsters ever since we viewed and handled the KMFJ-made Nous Defions/Arsenal Democracy Blackside Suppressed Glock 17/22 (G17/G22) taco-shell-type, military-grade combat/tactical pistol holster at the end of SHOT Show 2016 in a Trump Hotel Las Vegas suite. That holster was frankly the coolest and most interesting pistol holster we’d ever seen.
Well, the new KMFJ DA BERSERKER Holster Signature Series suppressed Glock 19/17/22 pistol holster is the latest iteration of the Blackside Glock pistol holster, and takes it to the next level with aircraft-grade kydex and new manufacturing techniques. And, the KMFJ Service Grade IWB G26/19/17 Holster is also pretty badass in its own right. Both holsters are lo-pro/lo-vis (low-profile/low-visibility), fast, super-strong, well-designed, and well-made. Just as important, designer/maker Ryland has been a great guy to deal with. He really cares about what he’s doing, and the customer–and he’s a veteran.
Defense Review is going to try to get both holsters into the hands of DR writer/contributor and chief new-product tester Jeff Gurwitch at some point, since he’s a retired US military SOF (Special Operations Forces) assaulter/operator, and competes with Glock pistols.
Anyway, take a look at the videos we shot below, and decide for yourself.
