The new Double-Alpha Academy Production Division Race (PDR) Belt-Ride Holster is the latest word in competition holsters specifically tailored for the special needs of the IPSC and IDPA shooters.
The Production division has been growing rapidly in recent years, and in many regions it is now the largest and most competition class. Reasons for this vary, but primarily it appeals to many for its simplicity, reduced costs, and a return to the “more practical days” of Practical Shooting.
Along these lines of thinking, Double-Alpha Academy teamed up with world renowned holster manufacturer, Front-Line, to design a holster which would meet and exceed the demands of this competitive division, while remaining true to its nature of practically and simplicity.
The Double-Alpha PDR Belt-Ride Holster is a quick draw Kydex holder, with an injection molded base for strength and durability. It offers a smooth and uninhibited draw, and tension adjustment.
Unlike most other Kydex holsters, the Double-Alpha PDR Holsters have an additional inner suede leather lining to protect your valuable firearm from wear and scratches typical to other Kydex holsters. This inner suede leather lining ensures a smooth draw, and a firm retention when the holster is tightened up.
Tension adjustment is done by turning a single screw by hand, without the need for any tool or aid. The adjustment ranges from very loose(*), to almost locked tight with just a few turns of the tension knob.
This Belt-Ride hanger model is compatible with both 1.5” and 2” belt sizes, and can easily be changed back and forth from one size to the other. The Belt-Ride hanger positions the gun closer to the body, and higher than the Low-Ride model does, making it compatible with the demands of IDPA regulations, and more suitable for day to day and concealed carry purposes.
Available for right or left handed shooters, in Black only. Models currently offer for the following firearms:
CZ SP01, Glock, Sig 226/228, HK USP, S&W M&P, Springfield XD, 1911 Gov.
* Keep in mind that new leather or suede lined holsters do not release as smoothly as they will once worn in. You can improve this from the start by applying some oil or leather-slick to the inner lining.
