Gear New plain clothes carry holster to double as a duty rig Recoil Staff March 3, 2014 0 COMMENT 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. Along with the ability to use a concealment slide or paddle to use for plain clothes carry, the Tap Out features two finger breaks used simultaneously as the safety mechanism, thus making the Tap Out ambidextrous. To upgrade the same holster to your duty rig, DeSantis advised you should replace the rail cover with the muzzle cover and Slide Break, which can “be changed in mere seconds without tools” thanks to the “mode adapter” that is fitted to the holster body. Then you’re done. The Tap Out is constructed of rustproof, reinforced polymer that can be used in any weather extreme and is adjustable for cant or height. According to the description on the manufacturer’s website, “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…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.” View more details on their facebook page or visit their website.
