This state-of-the-art holster option is a 100 percent carbon fiber construction, thereby offering a lightweight yet incredibly durable solution for carrying handguns. The optional red dot-compatible design adds to its advanced features, however, the high-end construction and features are reflected in its price – it is one of the more expensive options on the market.

TFB REVIEW: Safariland IncogX IWB Holster System – GLOCK 45 MOS

I was assured when I started carrying my guns in an appendix inside the waistband (AIWB) holster, that I would promptly shoot myself in a very important area.
