The VanGuard 2 is a minimalist IWB
holster. Unlike traditional IWB holsters, the VG2 covers only the
trigger guard of your weapon. This unique design eliminates the bulk of
a traditional holster, while providing a level of safety and security
not attainable by simply sticking a pistol in the waistband of your
The VanGuard 2 can be used multiple ways:
First, it can be used (without the
lanyard or the strut and soft-loop assembly) as a trigger guard cover
for storage and transportation safety. This prevents foreign objects
from finding their way inside the trigger guard and potentially pressing
the trigger, while still allowing the slide to be cycled and the
magazine released. This gives users the ability to clear the weapon
without the danger of a negligent discharge.
Next, it can be used with the
static-line tether for on-body (IWB) or off-body carry (such as inside a
bag, purse, briefcase, vehicle console, etc). This allows the weapon
to be safely carried with a chambered round without fear of a negligent
discharge, while still being rapidly deployable. The holster can also
be removed by catching the nose of the holster and prying it off. This
allows one-hand deployment of the weapon even if the tether or
attachment point fails to remove the holster.
Finally, the user can attach the
strut and soft-loop assembly to create a stable, secure, IWB holster.
The complete system is fully adjustable for ride-height and cant, is
tuckable for maximum concealment, and fully ambidextrous. Please
be aware, we do not advise attempting to re-holster the weapon while
the VG2 is inside your clothing. You should remove the VG2 and install
it on the weapon outside of your waistband.
