Let's face it: Some of us are always on the lookout for new gear. Even if what we're using is perfectly suited for whatever task is at hand, there's always a little voice in the back of our heads whispering "But what else is out there?" Sometimes, listening to that voice has advantages, like when you find a great new bit of gear.
Bravo Concealment makes kydex holsters and magazine carriers for a large number of handguns and magazines. Even more impressive, the company offers a large selection of holsters for pistols with attached weaponlights - and there are a lot of different configurations out there. Bravo Concealment can custom-fit a holster specific to your pistol and light combination, often in different colors and in a reasonable time frame.
The BCA holster comes adjustable for cant (and takes seconds, as long as you have a Philips-head screwdriver) and is amazingly comfortable. Well-designed and contoured to fit the body, the holster tucks into the side naturally and conceals quite well under a cover garment. Three belt sizes are possible: 1.5-inch, 1.75-inch and 2-inch widths. Fit is second-to-none, with no movement of the pistol whatsoever under pretty much any circumstance. Reholstering is quite simple and can be accomplished with strong hand only.
The magazine pouch (single not shown) worked fine as well, and offers dual loops similar to the holster for precise anchoring on the belt. One word of caution: Check the fit between different brands of magazines - slight tension adjustments may need to be made between factory and aftermarket magazines. The pouch depends on a precise friction-fit to keep the magazines in place, and certain aftermarket magazines have a different finish than factory.
MSRP: For the holster shown (BCA for the Glock 19), $69.99. The double magazine pouch (Glock magazines) shown is $47.99, while the single magazine pouch is $31.99. Combination packages of holster and magazine pouches are available to save cost.
