In the final weeks of the year, DeSantis announced several new products: a pink Clip Grip, a new line of inexpensive leather gun belts and a Pocket Shot holster for the Ruger LCP with a Crimson Trace LG-431 attached.
Pink Clip Grip
The Clip Grip is a polymer revolver grip with a portion that sticks out to hook onto your belt or waistband. This allows the shooter to carry the gun without using a holster. This new model is in pink and will fit Smith & Wesson J-frame revolvers with a round butt.
While I don’t care much for pink gun parts, I have to admit that pink stocks are less likely to get you “made” should your shirt ride up and expose them briefly.
DeSantis states the grips are for right handed carry only, and is not recommended for “fast-paced physical activity.” MSRP is $29.95.
DeSantis Economy Belts
For less than $25, you can get a black leather belt that is reinforced for concealed carry duty. DeSantis originally designed this belt as garrison belt for NYPD, but discovered it worked extremely well as a CCW belt also. [Ed. note: A garrison belt is used by police officers as a normal belt, that the heavier duty belt then attaches to. The garrison belt runs through the pant loops and is not visible when a duty belt is worn.]
The Economy Belts use a powder coated (black) buckle an will be available in sizes 28 – 54. MSRP is $24.99. A version of the belt with a Velcro-like closure, instead of a buckle, is $23.99 and is available in sizes S-XL.
Pocket Shot for LCP with Laser
The DeSantis Pocket Shot is a leather pocket holster that allows the user to shoot the gun without removing it from the scabbard. The new model fits a Ruger LCP with a Crimson Trace LG-431 Laserguard attached. The Laserguard mounts on the exterior of the LCP, and requires specially fit holsters.
This Pocket Shot carries a MSRP of $39.99.
I expect we will see these new products at the DeSantis booth in January when we travel to the 2013 SHOT Show.
