First Look: Uncle Mike's Apparition Holster for New Handgun Models

posted on November 30, 2020

The compact, high-capacity 9 mm pistol has become one of the most popular handguns in America. GlockSIG Sauer, Springfield Armory and others all have small, easy-to-conceal pistols that hold 10 rounds or more, making them an excellent choice for an everyday defensive carry pistol. While the pistols themselves are popular, finding the right holster can be a challenge. The high-capacity compact pistol is a fairly new idea in the American market, and holster manufacturers are constantly adding new models to give the owners of these popular guns more options to carry their pistols.  

Uncle Mike’s is a well-known holster manufacturer that is known for making holsters in a wide variety of materials and styles. Now Uncle Mike’s is releasing its Apparition IWB/OWB holsters for the SIG Sauer P365/P365XL, Glock 48, Springfield Hellcat pistols, as well has the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield EZ 9 mm/.380 ACP pistols.

The Apparition is designed as the first true inside-the-waistband (IWB) and outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster and offers you the flexibility to adjust your holster to match your preferred drawing technique. The Apparition can be converted to either an IWB or OWB configuration, without the use of tools. 

Apparition holsters also feature an ambidextrous mounting system that adjusts to style of carry and an adjustable retention system to keep your handgun where it belongs, and yet still give a fast draw when it’s needed. Constructed of ultralightweight materials, Apparition has a sleek design as well as the reliability and security expected of all Uncle Mike’s holsters.

The new Apparition models and come in a righthand configuration and are black in color. MSRP for the holster is $29.95, and for more information on this product and other gear from Uncle Mike’s, please visit
