I truly enjoy level 1 holsters. When properly designed and manufactured like much of the high-end Kydex offerings today, the friction-only retention offers fantastic performance in concealable packages. These holsters and their Q/D systems are equally good in my other carry locations including personally owned vehicle, nightstand, etc. They work well for the guy running a single system for all his carry options.
What about the gun guy/gal who can’t make up his mind on his carry? Or, what about the shooter who changes firearms with their outfits? Purchasing that much tactical Kydex can get expensive quickly.
Looking to offer a potential solution is the Tac-Mag, a high-strength magnet that instead of using friction, opts for magnetism to hold a firearm in place. While not appropriate for EDC, the magnet system can be mounted to a variety of places to hold a firearm, replacing the need for Kydex at every carry or storage location.
The magnet carries a full 25-lbs rating so it will handle pretty much every firearm out there except the semi-auto Barrett .50s. Complemented with a full lifetime warranty, the Tac-Mag is a pretty good bargain at $11.97 via Amazon. Order more than one to store magazines with the primary firearm.
Potential users take note – the Tag-Mag does not cover the trigger of your firearm like a good holster. Make sure to take this into account in your firearms storage plan.
