ShapeShift Hook & Loop Holster

The ShapeShift Hook & Loop Holster is a non-permanent solution for carriers who want their firearm off the body, but within reach—in their vehicle, at their bedside, under their desk or on almost any flat, smooth surface. The hook-and-loop fastener is sewn onto a low-profile holster base, which attaches to a separate industrial-grade adhesive mounting pad.

Without any tools, the pad can be mounted to plastic, metal, plywood and more. The highly adhesive mounting pads have been rigorously tested in heat up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit, and the high life-cycle VELCRO© stays like-new through thousands of holster removals. This holster is also available in Alien Gear’s Cloak Series, which is compatible with nearly 600 firearms. aliengearholsters.com

Vickers Tactical™ Carry Trigger for Glocks™

TangoDown™ Inc. has added the Vickers Tactical™ Carry Trigger (VTCT). There are two different models which accommodate the large variety of Glock™ models on the market. The VTCT is a flat-faced polymer trigger. The flat-faced trigger has become quite popular among shooters and offers the perception of a lighter trigger press. When developing the VTCT, the mechanical take-up was not modified. However, over-travel was shortened to offer a quicker reset, which allows for a quicker follow up shot. The VTCT is made from the same material as the OEM trigger, so there isn’t the risk of wear/damage to the frame. The trigger is an insulator, not a heat conductor and will not get hot while spending the day on the range. The VTCT is easily installed in minutes by a Certified Glock™ Armorer. tangodown.com


Walther Arms, Inc., announced further expansion of its extremely popular concealed carry product line with its new CCP M2. Retaining all the great features that made the original CCP a great carry option, the CCP M2 incorporates a new visible cocking indicator and an innovative tool-less takedown. With these new features, as well as the soft-coil recoil reduction system and incredible Walther signature ergonomics already found in the CCP, the new CCP M2 is the ultimate concealed carry pistol.
