DAA Race "Holster"

A little different from the typical carry holster on this forum...

This is a USPSA Limited/Open Division holster obviously not for carry! But it will shave a good 0.25-0.30 seconds off your draw time. It locks in to the trigger guard only, and it has a "safety" that clamps the gun down if you need to run (like in 3-Gun) with a holstered weapon.

Fun new match toy...

Sorry for the crappy cell-pic.

Jeff

i tried a borrowed one for a couple of matches. While secure, i did not like that they don't offer any protection from bumps and stuff. easy to dent a front sight against a popper if not careful. So i went back to my DOH.

I noticed also that a few of the top shooters have just stayed with regular holsters. Vogel, Nils jonnason for example just use a regular kydex.

in the end, of course, its personal preference.

The 2013 USPSA Li8mited Champion, Shannon (Smitty) Smith uses a traditional holster, as he also shoots Production, and likes a similar set-up for both guns.

If I'm shooting 3-Gun (hopefully more after ammo prices go back to somewhat reasonable, I'll likely run two rigs. This one for Limited/Open, and a kydex for 3-Gun, since you'll go prone, and be running more with a holstered gun while shooting the rifle or shotgun.

But damn... Just my practice draws are a LOT faster with this rig. Tomorrow night is my first match with it, so we'll see.

Jeff

Very nice Jeff can't wait to make it down that way you shoot on Fridays too? I need to get in to the training class in November but no holsters yet.

There has been quite a bit of debate on other forums about the 2 styles, and if the time saved on the draw with the race holster really matters on a regular course.

So how did it go?

I use the same one for my m&p and sphinx along with the race master aluminum pouches. Another good thing about the holster is that it uses interchangeable insert blocks, so you can have 1 holster for many weapons and draw training is consistent.

The possibility of scratching your gun against something is very real, as you can see from previous posts i made, but you can buy a cheap neoprene gun cover to protect it from rain, dusts and collisions, while not shooting.

However this is very different from a regular holster.

When the winner/qualifier is sometimes determined by thousandths, I'm wondering how saving 2 to 3 tenths could be argued against on ANY course of fire.
Sounds like another bunch of busy bodies to me.

looks good Jeff, any videos of your draw with it? Does the "safety" automatically engage when holstered, or is it a manual option if needed?

I shoot IDPA, so it wouldn't pass muster, but it does look good Jeff.

Now, if only Matt Dillon or Wyatt Earp would have had one...........
