I have been a fan of Gary Quesenberry since his appearances on Top Shot, and he’s a serious practitioner (and federal agent). If you’re looking for a minimalist holster that still meets the requirements of a holster and keeps open to reholster, this is a great option!

    When I was getting into appendix it sucks because being a gun guy you know any type of carry will suck if you don’t get quality gear. So I had to spend money on a good holster to try something that maybe will be much to uncomfortable. I ended up liking appendix so didn’t waste money there. However I can see how it’d be nice to spend $40 to see if it’s something I could even tolerate. But then again. Maybe this product is garbage… would love to see a review from John on it. Could be a winner.

    Make one for hand guns with weapons lights please 🙏

  3. Trail Way on March 21, 2023 at 3:03 am

    Interesting holster, my only concern is my tact light or sub tact lights… I find it’s a non negotiable for me. It’s a must have.

  4. littlerooster99 on March 21, 2023 at 3:05 am

    I like the looks of it only if they made it for my gun I would buy one

  5. studivan on March 21, 2023 at 3:06 am

    BS, so it’s more comfortable to them to have a piece of steel up against you than a piece of leather? Not to mention driving and sitting down, you would have to remove the firearm, anything for a dollar..

  6. Chris R on March 21, 2023 at 3:06 am

    My p320 xcompact holster broke after 5 months of constant draw practice and every day carry. Gary personally replied and replaced it for free. i couldn’t ask for better.

  7. Eric Bradshaw on March 21, 2023 at 3:08 am

    I bought this holster for my glock 43x and it does not have any positive retention! Terrible experience with customer service. All around bad time with this holster!

  8. Ken Andrews on March 21, 2023 at 3:09 am

    Wearing my second Q Series minimalist holster. The first was for a Glock 30S. When I switched to my current EDC Glock 48 a year ago in July 2021, I had to get a Q Series holster for it immediately. I carry AIWB and honestly (HONESTLY) I have to remind myself that I am carry a 4” barrel, 15+1 9mm (SA15 mags) in the 0100 appendix position. It’s that comfortable & comforting. No other holster I have ever used IWB or AIWB comes close to lasting 12 to 16 hours a day, everyday and, that includes doing manual labor chores on my small farm and/or hours behind the wheel of a truck. – Just get one, now. You won’t regret it.

  9. I like it what is it ? on March 21, 2023 at 3:09 am

    So what if I wanna run a light on my firearm.

  10. Andre Broaden on March 21, 2023 at 3:18 am

    After having this holsters a week my gun is falling out this holster

    fires that gd cameraman

  12. N Lee on March 21, 2023 at 3:21 am

    I have a couple of these. I put one, inside a sticky holster (for comfort and sweat protection), and LOVE it!

  13. Learn Share & Evolve on March 21, 2023 at 3:23 am

    Very nice, but major OMISSIONS: HK VP9 & SW SDVE!

  14. randy mills jr. on March 21, 2023 at 3:26 am

    I had one for 6 months and loved it. The plastic cracked and made it useless. I hope the improve the quality and I will get another one.

  15. Taylor Hubbard on March 21, 2023 at 3:27 am

    It fit the xd9?

  16. Lensync7 on March 21, 2023 at 3:28 am

    No Kimber micro 9…. Fail.

  17. BPL on March 21, 2023 at 3:29 am

    1:35 – 1:45 Get it together, cameraman

  18. Wavy Vaporizers on March 21, 2023 at 3:29 am

    Sad this is 4 years old then u go to the website and they still only support like 4 different manufacturers. Doesn’t support every gun manufacturers. For them not to have even 1 taurus or ruger holster is ridiculous. Seems like they are biased and only wanna do holsters for name brand guns

  19. 〆SAZON〆 on March 21, 2023 at 3:31 am

    I’m getting this for sure after watching this video. $40 Amazon

  20. Island prepper on March 21, 2023 at 3:32 am

    forget reholster, once I put it in my pants I can not take the gun out, this is the worst holster I own,,POS

  21. All the Things on March 21, 2023 at 3:32 am

    If you fire and reholster you will burn yourself!!!! Only one reason this is a no.

  22. robert perrotta on March 21, 2023 at 3:33 am

    Shaking the holster while it’s not on or in the belt to see if the firearm comes out is not a good indicator of anything. Many holsters, specifically leather or like he states Hybrid style holsters maintain their retention when inside or on the belt. Are you a ninja warrior? You’re afraid your gun will fall out while fast roping upside down? Ughh. Lol but like I said many holster begin retaining the gun when it’s on or in the belt. Pancake style holsters are a good example. If I sew a holsters to the point that it can be swung around upside down with the gun in it, once the holster and gun get on the belt you’ll never draw it. It’ll be stuck.

  24. TheProcrastinatingMiniaturePainter on March 21, 2023 at 3:33 am

    Ugh no Hellcat?!

  25. Wayne on March 21, 2023 at 3:34 am

    like it .

  26. Truth Told on March 21, 2023 at 3:35 am

    Isn’t there a downside of using a minimalist holster? Example: after firing your weapon you shouldn’t re-holster it because now the barrel is hot.

  27. Dubs Arizona on March 21, 2023 at 3:35 am

    Package says this holster is NOT intended for carrying a firearm in condition 0, 1 or 2


  28. Dawnseeker2000 on March 21, 2023 at 3:35 am

    I’ll take two please.

  29. EO ! on March 21, 2023 at 3:36 am

    I was all set to order this holster and I decided to watch a few more reviews on it before I did. It’s nice looking and it does secure your gun pretty good when your walking around but if you sit down and your seat in your car or any part of your body or pretty much anything presses along side of it your gun will pop out of the side of the exposed holster. I mean maybe they fixed that but I just watched a video and the guy clearly pushed it out with ease and that makes me reluctant to buy this product.

  30. Chris Warren on March 21, 2023 at 3:36 am

    Will the S&W shield holster work with the Shield plus?

  31. Zachary Lona on March 21, 2023 at 3:37 am

    I wish this worked if you have a light on your gun. I think I run a TLR-6 in my Glock 27, but I have a decent Tulster holster that fits exactly that setup. I’d prefer something minimalist like this though, but not at the expense of the light.

  32. AnotherGuyNamedDJ on March 21, 2023 at 3:39 am

    I love mine I bought for my Springfield xd-e. Even though it was made for the XDM and the XDS it works extremely well with my xde. I will be purchasing two more

  33. Mr WÓLF on March 21, 2023 at 3:40 am

    When are they available for Hellcat and Canik SC?

  34. Kats Shiba Inus on March 21, 2023 at 3:40 am

    Do they have OWB minimalist holsters?

  35. yisrael zeev on March 21, 2023 at 3:42 am

    I bought one a year back and it cracked a half year later. The store replaced it and a half year later it cracked again. Seems you should switch to plastic instead of kydex.

  36. 100fredkrueger on March 21, 2023 at 3:43 am

    If I carried IWB I would get it. I have stomach issues and carrying that way just isn’t an option. It’s hard enough carrying OWB. My stomach gets sick all the time and bloats a lot so I have to loosen my belt. Sure sucks.

  37. Brian Trenchard on March 21, 2023 at 3:44 am

    Mines coming this weekend. Any idea when s&w 45 mag carriers will be available ?

  38. Rodney Davies on March 21, 2023 at 3:44 am

    Will this fit a beretta apx?

  39. Nick Winn on March 21, 2023 at 3:44 am

    I’m mad I’ve been carrying concealed for 9+ years and I’m just now coming across this style holster. Bought a similar design from concealment express today so we’ll see.

  40. Mr. Black on March 21, 2023 at 3:46 am

    I’m gonna send the holster back ASAP…. if it fits the Glock 17……then, why the hell doesn’t it correctly fit the Polymer 80 G-17?? My 2nd major grievance is in the way the clip is designed…you can easily clip it to your belt….but it takes a herculean effort to take it off!

  41. Skiddly D. on March 21, 2023 at 3:47 am

    So, what about that comment where you said you wouldn’t carry in this holster? Can’t really trust you can we?

  42. lionofjudah373 on March 21, 2023 at 3:50 am

    Can you carry at 4:30 position with it tho

  43. Marcos Soto on March 21, 2023 at 3:50 am

    Wait, no Polymer80’s!?? 😕👎

  44. G Liss on March 21, 2023 at 3:50 am

    Best holsters I have ever used. Have 2 for both my Glocks. Now just need them to make one for the new Shield Plus. 😀

  45. lionofjudah373 on March 21, 2023 at 3:51 am

    I got zero elite 2.0

  46. Brandon Hill on March 21, 2023 at 3:53 am

    Well guys after searching i think this is the holster for me, placing my order now!

  47. Blakkliquor on March 21, 2023 at 3:54 am

    Re holstering might be a pain in the ass

  48. Randy Jones on March 21, 2023 at 3:55 am

    Just got one of these for my Hellcat. Its extremely difficult to draw my pistol from the holster. Is there a way to loosen it up so its not so difficult?

  49. ChaosRider .Hell on March 21, 2023 at 3:56 am

    Gary u need to delete this video!! Its just wrong to prompt and market such a shitty holster!!!

  50. watchingthecrazyworld on March 21, 2023 at 3:57 am

    Got one for my P320 Compact and another for my Glock 48. I’m hoping they will soon make one for a CZ P-01. Very good holster.
