1791 Gunleather is proudly introducing their 1791 Tactical Kydex Outside The Waistband Paddle Holster (TAC Kydex OWB Paddle). This holster features rounded polished edges and an enlarged opening for easier reholstering.

This new holster adds to the already existing lineup of Kydex offerings available from the guys at 1791. All of their holsters are made to an exceedingly high standard and the Kydex offerings are no different. Each and every holster from 1791 Gunleather is 100% made right here in the USA in the state of Texas ensuring you’re supporting a homegrown American company.

The TAC Kydex OWB Paddle has adjustable retention and ride height with 4 settings, low, mid-ride, high, and super high making this holster adaptable to any OWB carry situation. The open muzzle design of this holster accommodates firearms with extended threaded barrels, compensators, and longer slide models, as well as a tall sight channel for weapons with suppressor height sights. The RMR Optic cut will also accommodate most pistol optics.

“Our leather holsters have long been known for quality and craftsmanship. As we entered the Kydex market, we approached it the same way…quality and craftsmanship come first. Our Paddle Kydex series holsters were the perfect addition to our line offering something now for every customer,

-Ramiro Romani.

The holster comes standard with a plus or minus forward and back 15-degree cant for that perfect draw angle. The holster’s adaptability also allows anywhere from a 3 to 5 o’clock draw as well as a cross draw if that suits the wearer. The new holster also includes a sweat-shield to protect the handgun from corrosion. The hardware included with the holster is all stainless steel which will increase the longevity of your holster – especially if you live in a southern state like I do. The unique T-Blocking standoff is compatible with the included paddle attachment and Bladetech Teklok Mount.

    I really don't like OWB holsters that let the muzzles protrude, for two reasons. The first one is, it's easy to dislodge the pistol from the holster in a fight or a fall, or even a sideways roll in a car. The ground or the seat pushes the muzzle upward, and the gun may or may not reseat itself. In a fight,it certainly won't, and you may lose it entirely, or hand it to your assailant. The second, and most important reason, is that most people don't notice the tip of a holster peeking out from under your cover garment, but a gun muzzle draws eyeballs like excrement draws flies. Concealed should mean concealed, unless you like tense conversations with the authorities.
