Versatility of Kastinger universal holster :

– keep the main frame stitch and your thin-framed pistols (SIG P210, Colt 1911,…) and the smaller service pistols (Walther PP, Makarov,…) will have a nice fit.

– tear the thread away (a ten seconds operation) and your large frame pistols (Beretta 92, CZ75, SIG-Sauer P22x, Glock,…) will be at ease.

– you can even fit in a revolver, even if it’s not ideal – four inches barrels are the limit, the width of the cylinder is to be taken in account, and the position of the triggerguard relative to the barrel and the grip too. The biggest revolver I saw at home in a Kastinger universal holster was a Ruger GP100, and here are two borrowed S&W – the K-framed one is ok. If it were my revolver, and I intended to carry it that way, I would probably alter a bit the nylon with some simple sewing to have a perfect fit. On the other hand, a L-framed revolver is a no-go. I need to try my Manurhin MR93, which is big but quite flat.

That would make a perfect backpacking/hiking setup.

Yep. They are pretty great. Very durable, quite confortable, very polyvalent. And don’t forget than from any other position than standing in front of your target, the tanker holster is the quickest option available (in movement, sitting down, crouching, lying down on your back or your belly…).

It’s an Izhmash-made 5.56×45 mm civilian AK101 answering to the delicate and poetic name of SAIGA-M3 EXP-01. I really like a lot the folding stock, this is the only part I don’t like on my AK74.

cerebralzero answered to your photo“Can you guess what my new pistol is ?”

SIG P210?

It is not HK or glock so it needs to be sent back. J/k. I say its a sig.

It’s indeed a Pistolet 49 a.k.a. SIG P210-2. As new. Wonderful trigger, incredible accuracy, very hard manual safety.

Nice heater.  Lets see some footage of you hitting steel at long range!

Love that shoulder rig.  Used something similar (more leather-vintage style) with my M9 a few years ago.

New gun day – awesome.

As soon as I find the time, I promise 😉 The Kastinger tanker holster is a modern take on the old American design. Because it’s partly handmade, it’s rather costly and hard to get, but it’s still relatively common in Switzerland, because :

– it’s universal (for service pistols – there was a downsized variation for smaller pistols, like Walther PPK). So even if you have several pistols (i.e. Glock, SIG-Sauer, Ruger GP100…), you don’t have to get a wardrobe just for holsters.

– it’s built to last. Like in “I’ll give mine to my grandson, and he’ll give it to his grandson”. Seriously. My first one is about five or six years old and still is as good as new, after thousands of draws in and out.

– it’s the more polyvalent holster. It’s not a particulary good holster for CCW, but in Switzerland, most people carry a gun while in uniform. Of course, a traditionnal hip holster will be faster and easier to use, but only if you’re standing up. In all other positions (sitting in a car, lying down in the street to limit exposure, crouching behind a cover…), a chest holster is the way to go, with the added benefit to stay in your peripheral vision. In winter, it wins again since you can carry your gun over or under your big anorak, and in either case it will be easier to reach for than anything aroung your waist.

– it’s also a good instruction tool for beginners : they have to learn to sheathe their pistol carefully, and to be particulary aware of the muzzle direction of the gun (it’s trickier than in a traditionnal hip holster, so it needs to be done purposely). It’s one good way to learn to live with the gun.
