A New Holster Company Worth a Look


We often are contacted by holster makers wanting a video about their holsters. I appreciate a quality holster as much as anyone, but tend to shy away from these offers as they all want to be labeled "the best".

Anyone who carries knows there is no universally "best" holster. What you carry, where you carry it, your body type, your comfort threshold, your clothing style, and the gun you're trying to add to that mix can all make one holster better or worse than another, but for you specifically. Even changing guns can mean that your favorite holster make and model for the old gun is no longer the best choice for the new gun. It's a headache.

When the folks from Warcat Tactical contacted us it happened to coincide with an assignment I have based on the Sig P365XL. That combined with some other details made me say yes.

This is not your standard guy-in-a-garage kydex holster. Lighter, stronger, and more resilient. Additionally the build quality as you'll see in the video shows attention to detail beyond what many big brands are doing. The first thing that stood out to me with the Warcat Tactical holsters were the lack of sharp or rough edges. Another key point was clear access to the gun all the way to the base of the trigger guard; essential for a good grip and resulting draw.


All of that for an introductory price of $17.76 makes it pretty hard to say no to. (YES, this is US made)

Current listings are limited, but from what I've seen so far I'm impressed. Adding a bit of intrigue is the fact that Warcat Tactical intends to offer more than just holsters in the future. They certainly have the molding capabilities to create some neat stuff. I wonder what it will be.


Unfortunately the holsters arrived just after we left for a 2,000 mile road trip and several days on the range that would have made for an accelerated review of how the holsters hold up. We'll get to the range with these holsters never the less, and as stated in the video you can expect more coverage of both the holster and the Sig P365XL as it jockeys to replace the Diamondback AM2 as my lightweight carry choice.

Based on your YouTube video, I placed orders for 3 IWB and OWB holsters. I also made recommendations for a couple of more. Unfortunately, I am not “legal” for wear or carry in MD. I have a FL CCW permit and I hope to have these by my trip to GA next month.

Finally, a company that softens up the edges. Not quite sure why they don't all do it. I don't make holsters so I can't speak to the manufacturing process.

Anyway, what did Walther tell you about the future of the PDP?

I clicked through to their website but they do not currently have a holster for a Walther PPS. I sent them an email asking to be alerted when they are ready. Soon, I hope. Thanks for this review. I found it very helpful.

FYI, I sent my message to Warcat a couple of hours ago on today (Saturday) and they got back to me just now. My kind of company!! They are making lists of guns that need their holsters. Hopefully, others with PPS M2's will contact them. Thanks, again.

I know you don't endorse/suggest things lightly, so I'll keep that in mind whilst perusing for a new home for my relatively new carry gun, the Hellcat. Glad to see you guys back! Sig really knows how to make them. Well after 8+ months of working out primer drag, and trigger spring issues, so I waited till a year was up and bought the O.G P365. I'd carried it for 2 years with zero issues, even running about 500 rnds of Winchester NATO rounds to "beat on it" but it ran flawlessly. I won't even strap-on a carry gun without 500 rnds, so it was a good test puttin' the hot sauce through it! The 12+1 mags were good fo…

I know how thorough you are when you review a firearm. I've said this a lot before, but you are the only YouTube channel that, not only acknowledges that every firearm has an instruction manual, but even looks inside it lol I forget who told me that yeeeeears ago, but if you aren't competent with a firearm after 500 rounds, than you shouldn't be carrying it. Get to know your pistol/shottie/rifle before you stake your life, and the lives of others, on it. I can't speak from experience, as someone who's never even used a flat trigger before, but with the longer (newer) barrel, it might just pleasantly surprise you. I carried mine for 2yrs, and there were just time…
