Blackhawk has 20 years of experience making law enforcement and military equipment, and now the company is coming out with models of the Stache IWB holster to fit even more handguns. This new wider selection of holsters means that more gun owners than ever before can count on the Stache as their everyday carry solution.

The Stache holster is constructed of impact reinforced, injection molded polymer in order to deliver a level of combination of comfort, rigidity and modularity in an inside-the-waistband (IWB) holster that is not possible with Kydex. Premium models of the Stache include an adjustable concealment claw to reduce printing, an adjustable inside-the-waistband magazine carrier with belt clip and an accessory attachment wing.

Among the new models for the Stache IWB are the Glock 43 and Taurus GX4, both of which are quickly becoming some of the most popular concealed carry handguns on the market, as well as holsters which work with popular gun-mounted lights.

Other new Stache IWB holster models include:

  • Colt 1911 Commander
  • Staccato C2
  • 1911 models with 4-inch slide lengths
  • Glock 17, 22 or 31
  • Standard models of the Glock 43X and 48
  • Handguns fitted with either a Streamlight TLR 7 Sub or SureFire XSC accessory light
  • M&P Shield 9/40 standard models or when fitted with either a Streamlight TLR-6, Crimson Trace Lightguard or Laserguard Pro accessory light
  • Taurus Millennium G2C, G3C or GX4
  • Springfield Armory Hellcat

“The new Stache holster is the real deal,” said Travis Kennedy, former Navy Seal and Blackhawk brand ambassador. “Not only is this Stache one of the most comfortable holsters I’ve ever carried, but the modularity of the platform leaves no excuses. The Blackhawk team really hit this one out of the park, and I can’t imagine anyone needing another IWB holster.”

MSRP for the Stache IWB Holster base model is $39.95 and $64.95 for the premium models. For more information about the Stache IWB Holster and for a complete list of compatible handguns, visit

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus

In retrospect, Smith & Wesson had nobody to blame for the situation but themselves. The company didn’t invent the subcompact, lightweight, single-stack nine, of course. Walther and Beretta had preceded the original Shield to market by a few years with the PPS and the Nano, respectively, and Kahr had more or less created the niche back in the 1990s.
