Drop Offset Action Sport Holster

Our Drop Offset Action Sport Holster is our best selling Competition Holster. With our IDPA legal ejection port cut and proprietary drop offset, you can achieve a speedy draw stroke and faster target acquisition.

Formed using .093" Boltaron and fastened using blackened, hardened steel hardware our holster is built tough; resistant to the elements. The draw resistance is adjustable with a Philip's head screwdriver and tested prior to shipment to maintain our standard of quality.

Our Drop Offset Holster can be made for over 350 firearms and comes in a light bearing variation, here. Please choose your exact configuration from the drop down menu. We only guarantee a perfect fit for firearms listed on our menu.

Each holster has the option of right or left hand draw. The belt size is adjustable from 1.5"-2.25" in width, however we do require you to select the size on the order form so that the holster will ship ready to use. The Double Loop allows you to also adjust the ride height and cant angle of the holster.

The Drop Offset Holster comes with two leg strap options, a 1" nylon leg strap or our 1.5" elastic option. The elastic leg strap is adjustable and can be removed quickly should you not need it. 

This competition rig can me broken down into 4 parts: the Double LoopDrop Attachment, Holster Body and Leg strap. The Holster Body is compatible with all Dara Holsters attachments, including the ALQD Quick Disconnect. Please note, the ALQD does not pair well with the drop offset attachment- this combination causes the holster to offset drastically.

To make the Drop Offset Holster IDPA legal, you will need to remove the drop offset piece and attach the holster directly to the double loop. 

Light bearing Duty Holster

Our Duty Holsters come in two configurations: the standard Duty Holster and the Light bearing Duty Holster. Please note that these level 2 holsters are intended for Law Enforcement or Shooting Sports. They are not intended or designed to be concealable.

The body of our Duty Holsters are formed using .125" Boltaron, fastened with blackened, hardened steel hardware. Retention is adjustable with a Philip's head screw driver and tested prior to shipment with strict draw resistance parameters. 

Our auto throw hood is locked in place until the intuitively located thumb lever is depressed. The hood then rotates with enough force to move loose garment, making your firearm ready when you need it.
