Falco Holsters for Weapon-Mounted Lights (WML), Lasers, and Red Dots

If you concealed carry in the modern age, you likely have some accessories hanging off of your pistol – whether it is a semi-auto or revolver.

The reasoning behind this is that the laser would offer him both a faster and more accurate target acquisition in a home defense situation if he could not get to his glasses in time. Viridian Weapon Tech has a wide array of pistol-mounted laser aiming devices and they have now released their popular E Series Green Laser for the growing library of G Series pistols from Taurus.
