It's a minimalist trigger guard covering holster with a single pull the dot. I know I'll buy at least one. I'm sure they are going to sell a shit load of them.
These dudes always seem to set the bar for innovative holster design with the Phantom, then ACR and now the vanguard II.



ETA: Video added. I think I found my next ex wife.

I'm cool with minimalism,  but I don't mind a bit of leather down there to smooth out the contours and take the bite out of the edges.  I've never caught myself wishing "I wish this damn summer special didn't have so much leather, and was, in fact just a clever strap to cover the trigger and hang on my belt".  



That's just me though.  You may love it.

Meh, only useable with an undershirt. Half the reason of a holster is to keep the gun off your skin due to moisture and chaffing on the sharper edges. I'll stick to ky full size IWB.

Every time I see these types of holsters one thing goes through my mind- you take it to the range, put a couple hundred rounds through it and decide to do some presentation drills after that.

A major failure of this type of holster will become quickly and painfully apparent.

Not even slightly interested in such a thing.  If that's what passes for "innovation" in the holster field, I'll stick with the old school stuff.

This is niche holster for a specific purpose.  I doubt they intend it to take the place of all holsters for every situation.  You can do presentation drills with this holster so you are proficient with it, without ever firing a round.

No.  The main reason of the holster is to retain the gun in a single position and at one angle so that all that drilling and practicing we do, or at least some of us do, to develop muscle memory pays off when we're about to be killed and we reach for our gun.  If it ain't where that muscle memory expects to find it then you have to look.  And if you have to look you're probably already dead.

 



Anything else is just icing on the cake.

The reason for a holster is retention and provide ready access. Looks like that front site blade could be hanging on things like your pants.  Muscle memory or not if you can't get it out of your 'pants' then whats the point.  

Clever but not practical IMO

Looks like there could be an auto draw problem at that position.

Works for what it's intended to do. Friend picked one up at SHOT. Strong retention (with a G19). Looks like a good idea for summer.

I've got a friend or two carrying J frames mexican carry with clip draws. They work in places where they can't carry a gun so they leave their firearm in their cars when they go to work. I think this would be a good product for them.

I hope Raven doesn't send Tom Cruise to kill me but I couldn't wait and built my own out of some kydex I had laying around. I've done about a hundred draw stroke with my homemade version and I haven't had any issues so far.

Uh oh, you better hide your dog. They posted on their FB page the other day how they have the designed patent pending or something and had intellectual property rights.

I was under the impression if you make it for your own personal use you don't run afoul of of intellectual property rights.



Dammit maybe I need to have another boating accident.

+1  Good way to get Glock-Nutted.

I prefer to carry in real holsters.


The holster completely covers the trigger. It isn't recommended that you reholster. Instead, they recommend you remove it form your pants, reholster, then reattach the holster. This is for CCW, not competition.

I've actually seen and held one of these things. They aren't for me, but it works well for what it's intended to do. Very strong retention, too.
