PDN members probably know Mission First Tactical from their numerous high-quality firearms accessories, including rifle stocks, grips, rail systems, magazines, sights, and more. Now Mission First Tactical has entered the firearm holster business very seriously.
One of the two Mission First Tactical holsters featured in this video is an outside-the-waistband model that is set up with a belt loop for a 1¾-inch belt, but it also comes with a clip so it will go over a 1¾- or 1½ -inch belt. Mission First holsters are well made and hold the gun close to the body.
Mission First selected the Boltaron material for their holsters because it’s durable, has a uniform wall thickness, and allows MFT to create holsters that are rugged and appropriate for the range but also comfortable for all-day wear by holding the gun in close and tight. It also has good retention for concealed carry if you carry OWB wearing an untucked shirt.
Mission First holsters also include inside-the-waistband models such as the one shown here (for a Glock 43), which has a belt clip and is set up to cover the trigger guard of the handgun. It is larger than the typical minimalist holster and includes some features not found on most minimalist holsters. It has a wing that puts backpressure against the inside of the belt for the appendix carry position. This means it will tuck even full-size grips.
The rugged belt clip is a clip, not a loop, but it covers 360 degrees and has an aggressive J-hook that keeps the holster stable. The belt clip is ambidextrous, and a hole at the bottom of the holster is for attaching a lanyard. When using gun holsters, you don’t want to compromise on safety. This is the best-designed trigger guard-type holster we have seen, unlike some others that can pose a safety hazard to the wearer.
Mission First holsters are rugged, well-designed, and come from a company with a great reputation for firearm accessories.
