As firearms evolve, so do tactics and accessories. Today, carrying a pistol equipped with a light, red-­dot sight and spare mags is in vogue. A pistol light reduces muzzle rise and means that the pistol can be effective anywhere, anytime. A red-­dot sight offers the user more precise and faster shots when learned.

One-­size-­fits-­all holsters are either too bulky for everyday carry, or too flimsy for secure retention. Research what’s available and you’ll see that it’s hard to find a company that offers a practical holster that allows you to carry your preferred light and reflex sight. Most holster brands’ catalog for light-­mounted guns only lists one or two options for the most popular duty rigs (such as the Glock 17/22 wearing a Streamlight TLR-­1), and little else.
