Editor’s Notebook: Ancient Weapons? Simply Rugged’s new holster, the Shootist, has elements of old and new. The design pulls the gun in close to your side. Rob Leahy, proprietor of Simply Rugged Holsters – formerly of Alaska and now of Chino Valley, Ariz., and his media/sales guy Bruce Warren were discussing how good it would […]
Dave Hartman, Marine /LEO Gunsite Instructor: Range commands after a drill: “Slowly, reluctantly, holster your firearm.” BEST advice on holstering a gun I have ever heard. Slamming the gun home is a good way to end up with a couple extra holes in your leg. Slamming the gun home into the holster is the sign […]
The Simply Rugged Cuda is a combination inside-the-waistband (IWB) / outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster. By combination, I mean you can easily convert it from one to the other. Other designs on the market allow you to perform this exorcism by screwing and unscrewing clips or gun pouches or whatever. The Simply Rugged Cuda design has the […]
Hey Rob –
I got the package today!
Belt – fits just right and is indeed a real belt. I hate belts that aren’t, got a whole rack of them in the closet. The only off the shelf belts worth a darn anymore seem to be either Filsons (maybe) or Vogts (usually), but this is more along the lines of what I want these days in an everyday belt. Tough booger!
CID – am well pleased with it. I like being able to place it over a belt loop and am very happy that its design is such that it does not pull my belt OR britches down. I checked and it even makes my butt look good … well, if I stand just right … plenty of stiffness to allow a reholster but enough flexibility to be comfortable. I reckon it will get better with age.
Mag pouch – definitely not something I’m an authority on, but it is comfortable, easy to put on and take off, and works. I think I’ll send my Dozier big folding Trapper in and have something similar made for it. Also will pick up one of your AR pouches, though the notion of needing a reload for a 30 rounder is probably a little on the silly side for me.
