To be honest the SHOT Show is full of a lot of the same stuff, cough AR-15s cough, but there are a few gems to be found. I stumbled upon a product from a company I think is going places. They’re called Ulticlip and they make a pretty ingenious way to secure your holster to yourself.
The issue with most gun holsters on the market is retention. When you draw your handgun, knife, backup magazine etc retention is usually pretty lousy. If your holster or sheath isn’t fastened to your belt securely it tends to ride up as you draw. While this isn’t absolutely horrible, it is awkward and can slow down your draw. Most belt clips on the market still leave a bit of slack when they’re attached to your belt, the Ulticlip eliminates that with the unique way it attaches to your belt.
Instead of running your belt through loops or traditional style holster clips the Ulticlip clamps directly onto the belt. You don’t even need a belt really, it can clip directly onto your pants, in a purse pocket or however you secure your firearm when carrying. Ulticlip claims their holster clips offer 10 times the retention of other holster clips on the market. As far as concealability the Ulticlip is also superior because there is less of the clip exposed on your belt compared to traditional clips.
Some holster companies are already offering the Ulticlip as an option with their products and I believe more will soon follow. You can even add the Ulticlip to holsters already on the market, another great feature of the Ulticlip is they retail at just $11.99.
