Interesting Conversation On Holsters

In the video below, Bill Wilson and Ken Hackathorn have a very interesting conversation on different types of holsters and what to look for when selecting one. They discuss the pro’s and con’s of the various styles and get into a bit of the history of some of them. For example, the Askins Avenger holster that came out from Bianchi was actually designed by holster maker Bruce Nelson and was designed to be worn cross draw.

This is part of the Gun Guys series put out by Wilson Combat.

Note – posting may be a little sporadic this week as I will be doing a bit of traveling.

Cutaway Wilson Combat 1911

Wilson Combat made a custom cutaway 1911 for Larry Vickers. In the video below, you can see him shooting it in both full and slow motion.

It is fascinating to watch the ejection begin after the hammer has fallen and the bullet is on its way downrange. This is a well put together video. I’ve watched 2-3 times and I can see myself watching a number of more times. It is only about 3 minutes but is is 3 minutes well spent.
