Gamble Tactical LA Holsters

Gamble Tactical LA Holsters

Game TActical Holster Pics

A problem with having tactical accessories on your pistol is finding a holster that can accommodate it.  There are companies that make them, but prices are usually expensive and wait times are usually long.  Also, sometimes you’ll have to get a custom holster made to accommodate your specific setup.  One company is trying to help compact Glock owners make it easier to find a holster with their new LA Tactical Holster.

Gamble Tactical’s LA Tactical holster has a unique design that will allow an owner attach almost any light/laser to their Glock compact.  As you can see from the pictures, the complete underside of the holster is pretty much cut away, leaving it open.  The pistol is actually held in by a 3 point retention system–a small column that goes into the muzzle, an polymer strap that’s formed around where the backstrap meets the slide, and the areas around the triggerguard/frame.  The pistol is released when grabbing it; the top of your hand moves the strap which releases the gun from the holster.

Gamble Tactical’s holster is constructed from a glass reinforced nylon and can host a variety of belt clips.  The holster is also adjustable so it can provide specific cant that an owner may want.

The design of the LA Holster has an obvious advantage–it provides a holster for those wanting to put accessories on their Glock 19 or 23.  However, from looking at the video below, it seems that it forces somewhat of a non traditional draw.  You have to come back a little bit then up, rather just just straight up as with most of the holsters currently on the market now.  But unlike most other holsters, you can’t attach any accessory you want, and/or switch out that accessory and still use the same holster. With a little training and some time getting used to it, I’m sure the unorthodox draw wouldn’t be a difficult obstacle to overcome.

Hopefully, Gamble Tactical will be offering their new innovative holster for more models of Glocks or even different manufacturers of pistols.  I’m sure there’s a market for the same type of holster that could accommodate other striker fired pistols such as the S&W M&Ps and the Springfield XDs (it would be difficult to make a similar holster for pistols with an external hammer such as a Sig P226).

For a light bearing holster, the price seems very reasonable at only 30 bucks and is available at the sportsmanguide.com.

Costa Ludus goes live

Chris Costa’s new venture, Costa Ludus, has officially gone live with their new website launch this week.  CostaLudus.com allows you to sign up for Chris’s classes, see his training schedule and also highlights other services provided by Costa Ludus such as product test and evaluation.  I personally liked the training page, specifically his family history and his philosophy on the training he provides:

Due to my background, I found it fitting to choose the trident, shield and net to represent Costa Ludus. My family has been in the maritime industry for a very long time. My grandfather served in the Navy during World War 2; after the war, he was employed as a master rigger by Concordia Company, Inc. One of my uncles was a New England fisherman and tug engineer, while another uncle is a retired U.S. Coast Guard Vietnam veteran. My father retired from the U.S. Coast Guard with 20 years of service, and he is now a licensed Captain. I spent 12 years in the U.S. Coast Guard before joining the private sector at Applied Marine Technologies Inc. (AMTI).

Costa Ludus conducts training for the game of life, where the knowledge and skills learned in training may one day translate over to the streets or battlefield, determining life or death. We train others with the understanding that life is bigger than us. We understand the sacrifices that others make on a daily basis for our freedoms – that is why we take training so seriously.

Sincerely – Christopher Costa

The website is definitely worth checking out, and if you’re lucky enough to live near one of the areas on his training schedule, I would sign up–the prices may be a little higher but the quality of instruction will probably be the best you can get.

New Bersa BP Concealed Carry 9mm

Bersa BP9CC

Bersa is offering a new concealed carry pistol next year named the BP9CC.  Bersa’s new pistol’s style differs somewhat from their current lineup.  First it has less of that PPS type of look with squarer lines, and second it’s striker fired which leaves it without an external hammer.  From the looks of the picture, the Bersa BP9CC has some rough texture spots on the frame, a serrated slide towards the back and a picatinny rail for attaching a tactical light.  The front sights are of a SIG SAUER type and the rear are an interchangeable Glock type making it easier for owners to put in aftermarket sights.  The BP9CC isn’t exactly a pocket pistol being that its total length is 6.35 inches, but is still small enough to be a comfortable concealed carry gun.  the Bersa BP9CC will come in two finishes; the Matte Black will retail for $429 and the Duotone will be $440.

Make Ready with Travis Haley Adaptive Kalash

Travis Haley’s second Panteao production video after leaving Magpul Dynamics will be featuring the AK-47; so all of those who were wishing for a Magpul Ak-47 video, this is the closest your going to get.  From the trailer below, it looks great.  It seems that Haley applies his no-nonsense logic to firearms manipulation as he always does with his instruction.  I’ll definitely be picking up a copy to review.

Here’s how Panteao Productions describes the video:

The Kalashnikov Rifle – misunderstood and underestimated by the media, often portrayed as inaccurate and unwieldy – is so widely adopted across the world it deserves fairer treatment by end users. The Adaptive Kalash training video introduces the viewer to the proper handling and usage of this rifle.

Special Operations Veteran Travis Haley guides you through the different types of AK rifle you may come across. Modifications and caliber choices are reviewed and discussed, so that you can find the best platform for your particular needs. Key points reviewed include correct loading techniques, safety manipulation, and dealing with malfunction. The common misconceptions surrounding the use of the AK platform at long ranges are addressed, along with establishing a zero that works for your situation.
