Designed by Saul Kirsch, and with valuable input from Angus Hobdell, more than 30 years of top-level competition experience contributed to its design. After nearly two years in development, we can say with confidence that this is indeed the next stage in competition holster evolution. Try one, and we are sure you will agree!
We set out to develop a new holster with the following goals in mind:
• To offer the best and most advanced release system on the market
• To offer a wide range of position adjustments – and to hold those settings rock solid
• To offer both a fully locked safety feature and tension adjustment capabilities
• To allow the user to change from one gun type to another without having to buy a complete new holster
• To look sharper and cooler than any other race holster out there
We are pleased to say that the final product offers all these features and more.
Looking the Part!
The Race Master Holster is as attractive as it is functional. No expense was spared in the design and construction of this state-of-the-art product. The entire holster is CNC machined from aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel and hard anodized to offer a long-lasting surface finish in Black, Blue, Red, or Silver.
Patent-Pending Locking Mechanism
At the very heart of the new Race Master Holster is a brandnew innovative patent-pending locking system that offers a smooth clean release of the pistol and a solid grip on the gun when holstered.
Unlike other models which rely on a muzzle support to hold the gun steady, or short holsters which allow the gun to rock when holstered, the new Race Master holds the gun so steady, you cannot tell the pistol from the holster! And yet it draws upwards as smoothly as can be with almost no resistance at all.
The phenomenal locking is achieved by means of a unique sliding block, formed precisely around the front end of the trigger guard. This fitting is the reason for the gun’s incredible stability in the holster. As the gun is drawn, the block, which resides in an angled track, slides out to the side, smoothly releasing the trigger guard and allowing the gun to be drawn with only 6-8 mm (1/4”) of upward motion required to clear the holster.
One of the most important features of a competition holster is adjustability. Being able to position the gun just right can make the difference between a lightning-fast consistent draw or a poor failed attempt.
The Race Master Holster offers almost unlimited adjustability. And, thanks to its rugged aluminum construction and large-thread screws, when you lock the holster in your chosen position, it stays put!
Unlike other holsters, the Race Master is designed to give you access to almost all the adjustment screws while you are wearing it on your belt. Without removing your belt, you can adjust the height of the gun and the distance from your body, and even unlock the ball-socket hinge and adjust any angle of the holster. This is a huge advantage in setting up your holster just right.
