DeSantis Gunhide has released a new patent-pending holster that is designed for use as both a plain clothes holster and duty rig: the Tap Out. The Tap Out™ system is the first holster of its kind with patents pending. It is a multi security level, ambidextrous, and multi use system that is extremely intuitive. Every officer, left and right handed, in the department can train the same way, with the same operating system. It is built from a special highly reinforced polymer, making is very strong, rustproof, and it can endure all weather extremes.
The Tap Out™ system transforms from a plain-clothes mode into a high security level duty holster. The basic holster body will be fitted with a “mode adapter” which allows the carry mode to be changed in mere seconds without tools. The muzzle cover and Slide Break™ replace the “rail cover” and add an additional level of security while keeping the draw stroke very operator friendly.
The De Santis – Tap Out Holster is available for Glock 17, 19, 22, 23, 31, 32, 37, 38. Sig Sauer P228, P229, P239,P229R, P229 DAK, P239 DAK. And Smith&Wesson M&P 9mm/40cal 4 1/4″. For more details visit DeSantisHolster
Combine the technological advances of First Spear and the marketing gonads of SKD in a dirty, backseat tryst, and the only thing that could gestate is a ground-breakingly evil product like the First Spear STT (Six-Twelve-Tubes) Plate Carrier.
The First Spear STT PC was created in conjunction with and exclusively for SKD, and offers 6/12(TM) and Tubes (TM) technology in a sub $200 Plate Carrier for the first time. What the market has been missing for years (since the likes of the Eagle Plate Carrier with Cummerbund) has been a full-featured plate carrier from a top tier brand in the sub-$200 category. With the First Spear STT Plate Carrier, you not only get all the traditional features in an all-molle front, back and cummerbund, but you get the bleeding-edge technologies of 6/12 (TM) and Tubes (TM) for a lightweight Molle interface, sex-pot good looks, and the fastest don and doff in the industry.
The plate pockets are sized to handle most 10″ x 12″ commercial armor plates, as well as Medium ESAPI/Ceradyne plates (L or XL ESAPI will not fit). The bottom flap pushes the plate to the top of the pocket to keep your armor in its proper place over your upper thoracic region. The cummerbund will accept PIG side armor inserts (6″ x 10″) in Kevlar or Dyneema as well as longer inserts that are up to 12″ in length. Exclusive to this SKD-spec Plate Carrier is the integration of loop velcro strips on the front and back carriers for option of adding PIG AFC Pontoons for increased air flow and padded goodness.
The STT Plate Carrier is available in Black, Coyote, Ranger Green, and MultiCam, exclusively through SKD Tactical for about $200 / €146 / £120

Here’s a great review from our friends and partners in crime from Airsoft Community Europe on the Gen2 Tactical Universal Clip:
Well I am sure that this piece of kit needs no introduction by now and as per this reviewers prediction the Tactical Universal Clip system has taken the airsoft market in the UK, Europe and USA by storm! When I was writing the first review a few months ago I was aware of some small changes, updates if you will, that were being carried out by the team from TUC and the principle one was some minor changes to the ‘chest plate’ that the pin on either the M4 or Solid Stock marries too.
