G-Code Holsters

As seen in Thunder Roads LA-MS Gulf Coast July 2019 Vol. 15, Issue 7.

In early 2013, Haley Strategic Partners teamed up with G-Code Holsters to develop a top-of-the-line, Inside The Waistband holster. From my understanding, this collaboration came of insights in difficult and disruptive environments training. I had been following Travis Haley’s work since the earlier days of my involvement with firearms. I had been interested in finding a properly hidden IWB holster for use at the 4-o’clock position, but no luck was had until the release of the INCOG holster.

It may be odd to see that term being used but, there’s enough proof to say that the assessment is correct.

Proficiency

As seen in Thunder Roads Louisiana August 2017 Vol. 14 – Issue 7.

If you are willing to learn, you will learn every single day of your life. If you are analytical, you will learn to tell the difference between what is fraud and what is truth. Unfortunately, not everybody is so keen on conscious learning throughout their lifetime. We see this if you were to set down a firearm on the table in front of someone like myself and someone who is wholeheartedly anti-firearms. Quite a few of the latter will be frozen solid with fear of what is nothing more than an inanimate object, and this is common knowledge. But, there is something about this reaction that is somewhat disingenuous.
