Glock Duty Holster Chambers As You Draw

For Law Enforcement outside of the US, some of them have to carry chamber empty.  I saw this posted online. It was posted by a Filipino Gun Club. The holster allows the user to chamber a round as they draw the gun out.


It reminds me of the the Crye Gun Clip in that drawing the weapon out is a tilting/rocking out motion rather than a standard upward draw. However one issue I have is that the trigger is not covered up. It looks like there is some sort of trigger block when the Glock is locked in the holster. But that is not as good as a proper holster that completely covers the holster.

    If you’re carrying on an empty chamber though, I an exposed trigger is a little bit less of a thing… right?

    • gunsandrockets

      good point

    • Herschel Walker

      IF the chamber is actually empty. But how often do we think the gun is empty and leave a round in the chamber? It definitely happens. There is no excuse for not protecting the trigger.

      • ADRoberts

        There is also no excuse for coming up with all the imaginary excuses and problems that possibly can happen.

  • Brocus

    reminds me of that Makarov holster where you push the gun out the bottom and rack the slide in the process

  • Paul B.

    Is it just me, or are you more likely to have an ND trying to use that contraption to chamber a round, as opposed to just carrying fully loaded?

    • Glenn Bellamy

      I agree. In the amount of time spent practicing to competently and safely use that thing, one could have trained to have proper trigger finger discipline.

    • Vitsaus

      If you can’t trust yourself enough, or can’t be trusted enough, to carry a loaded firearm on your person, then you probably should not be carrying a firearm at all.

  • snmp

    Not new holster system, you could found in Russia the EFA2 for Makarov ans the EFA-G17 for glock 17 or In Spain FUNDAS AH for Glock, Berretta, HK ..

  • Ed

    Just a copy of a 20 year old Russian holster. Nothing to see here.

    A.P.S? Isn’t that airsoft?

    • MrFN

      LOL Yeah, their airsoft stuff is decent, don’t know about it being for an actual Glock, though.

      • A bearded being from beyond ti

        when you’re on a budget maybe. Reminds me of some guy that had a guest article here about making a D.I.Y Salient arms AR and he was using an Angry gun rail and PTS magpul sights.

        • MrFN

          I can see that, I’m sure as soon as someone makes knock off Erathr3 parts we’ll see them on actual rifles. It’s natural that when you don’t make single components, and charge a crap ton for full rifles, knockoffs will be made.

        • Nicholas C

          That wasn’t a guest article. That was me. I wrote and did that.

            But you weren’t the guy in the video, right?

    What could go wrong.

    That reminds me of that goofy TV show “Deadliest Warrior.” They had a Spetznaz vs. Green Beret episode that was just moronic- they compared issue sidearms and somehow considered the Makarov to be a superior weapon to the Beretta 92. They were very much in love with the EFA2 holster, which allows you to, you know, chamber your gun as you draw.

    Of course, non-idiots carrying a Beretta 92 in ANY holster don’t need to do that… on account of not having idiotic policies like carrying a handgun with an unloaded chamber.

    Also they confused the 9x18mm and 9x19mm cartridges as being identical, and somehow the less powerful, lower capacity pistol gimped by stupid operating rules still won.

      I loved that show. The SF vs. Spetznaz is the only one I didn’t see. My favorite was the Knight vs. Pirate one, where the pirate won by opening the knight’s visor and shooting him in the face with a flintlock pistol.
      Come to think of it, the IRA vs. Al Qaeda show was good, too (last AQ standing gets wiped out by IRA bomb; the look on his face when he hit the tripwire was fantastic), and the Mafia vs. Yakuza one was entertaining, too.
      Shows like that are the reason I got rid of my TV.

      • Madcap_Magician

        I confess I binge-watched that show. The SF vs. Spetznaz was the only one that broke the immersion for me because of that dumb Makarov holster…

      • “where the pirate won by opening the knight’s visor and shooting him in the face with a flintlock pistol” – that scene was honestly one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen on TV

  • retfed

    It’s very reminiscent of the video where the Spanish policewoman demonstrates the charging holster. At least, that’s what I’ve been told. I’ve watched that video at least a dozen times and I’ve never seen a holster or a gun.

    • Phillip Cooper

      Link to video, please?

      • retfed

        I went to youtube and typed in “Spanish policewoman demonstrates holster” and got it. If a computer troglodyte like me can find it, I’m sure you can.
        If you see a gun and/or a holster, please let me know.

        • Phillip Cooper

          I need to go to Spain, find wherever she works, and embark on a life of low-level non-violent crime.

          .. and be no good at it.

          Nope, no gun or holster evident in that video. Cool bike, though.

          • retfed

            Keep looking for that gun and holster. Don’t give up! Everyone hates a quitter!

  • Will

    Yeah………HELL NO!!!!!!

  • John

    If you can’t be trusted to draw from your holster without shooting yourself, should you really even carry a gun?

  • If you, as a nation, do not trust your law enforcement officers to carry, retain, and use a sidearm with a round in the chamber, what does that say about how much you respect your own citizenry?

  • Ranger Rick

    This “Bad Idea” has been around for a number of years, in various forms. Every time you reholster you eject a live round on to the ground, a round of ammunition you may need later.

  • tsubaka

    so you need to :
    1. push release button
    2. rotate
    3. push downward
    4. finally take the pistol

    As opposed to :
    1.take the pistol

    if somebody need to open carry a gun he probably need it in 1 second rather than fighting against the holster

  • DanGoodShot

    If you have to carry empty atleast theres a pretty slick holster for it!

  • The American Crusader

    A solution in search of a problem. All kinds of NO.

    • DIR911911 .

      the problem was stated clearly in the beginning , some departments have to carry condition 0

      • The American Crusader

        Shades of Barney Fife IMHO

  • No one

    About 100% certain I could pull out and the rack the slide manually quite a bit faster than using this to do it and drawing with it.

    Not that I ever carry off condition 0, But I digress.

  • valorius


  • jerry young

    Having an exposed trigger even while carrying on an empty chamber is still not a good idea and from what I see here there is a tab that protrudes through the trigger guard that you have to depress to un-holster your gun placing your finger on or near the trigger while drawing, not the best or safest idea especially when most accidents happen due to trigger contact, the whole concept is dumb either you carry on an empty chamber and rack a round when you draw or you carry ready to rock, this idea is an accident in the waiting.

  • Jeff

    An answer looking for a question. A dumb question.

  • shooter2009

    Dumb solution to a non-problem.

  • Cal.Bar

    Can’t possibly design a better holster to get yourself shot in the leg. Or worse – shot by the bad guy you’re trying to shoot while FIDDLING with your weapon.

  • Craig Todd

    Why is the trigger not protected?

  • ADRoberts

    I did not see any reference to where to buy such a holster. Is this just a tease? What is the name and where is it available. Yes, I am old and might have missed it. But it should have stuck out like a sore thumb if they really wanted us to know.
