Re: Horizontal MOLLE Holster for Pistol w/ Light

Thanks guys! I've checked out Safariland, Comptac, and BladeTech already but the problem I encountered was that I couldn't find any that could accommodate a Glock equipped with a TLR-3 light. There's quite a few for Glocks with the TLR-1 but nothing available for the TLR-3. Also, I'm not a big fan o...

Horizontal MOLLE Holster for Pistol w/ Light

I've searched high and low trying to find a horizontal pistol holster for chest mounting that can accept a pistol with a light (a Glock 17 with a Streamlight TLR-3 to be specific) and can't seem to find anything suitable, so I figured I'd ask you guys for ideas.

Re: PEQ for a AK

The Midwest Industries AK Handguard is a pretty legit and popular option. LCT makes a nice replica but the replica costs just about the same as the real deal so you might as well go for the real thing if you take that route. If you're pimping largely than there's the Ultimak Forend , and LCT makes a...
