Viridian Introduces Enhanced Combat Readiness

Every Viridian C5, C5L and TacLoc holster is now equipped with revolutionary Enhanced Combat Readiness (ECR) technology, allowing the gun owner to pre-set laser mode, carry in a secure TacLoc holster, and ignite the laser automatically the instant the weapon is drawn - a life-saving advantage in lethal encounters.

As the gun is drawn, Viridian's digital laser/holster system detects the pull and instantly launches the brilliant green laser and/or taclight -- targeting, blinding and intimidating in one reflex-fast move.

With Viridian's cutting-edge ECR system, pause-to-activate is obsolete and response to danger can be quicker than thought -- a decided advantage when there's literally no time to think and a moment's delay can change an outcome.

Every new Viridian C5, C5L, and TacLoc holster is ECR equipped, working together as a unique component system unavailable from any other brand. ECR-enabled laser sights and holsters from Viridian and TacLoc will be available from authorized stocking dealers and ViridianGreenLaser.com beginning January 1.

Which Products are Affected?At the date of this announcement only C5, C5L and C5 Series TacLoc holsters are affected by this change. If you recently purchased a C5 or C5L check the serial number on the top of the unit. If the serial number is above 18000, your unit is ECR-enabled. If you have an older model C5 or C5L we are unfortunately unable to add this feature.

All TacLoc holsters shipped from approximately December 1 are ECR enabled.

Future AnnouncementsStay tuned for an announcement regarding Viridian X5L Generation 2 and compatible TacLoc holsters both featuring the new ECR technology.
