5.11 Thumbdrive

5.11 Tactical Thumb Drive (Level II) Holster


I am by my very nature a holster nut, freak of nature, if you will, dedicated to all things leather that hold a firearm and am often found lurking on EBay searching for another to add to the embarrassing larder (300+ and counting) of varying rigs. I am constantly searching for THE holster that lends itself well to my everyday needs and requirements. I, of late have become more appreciative of the subtle advantages of Kydex and it’s brethren (especially when you are sliding into home on a barricade, ON THE HOLSTER!!!).  Anyway, I have to admit I’m pretty impressed with this rig for not only the way it is built (like a tank!), but also the release mechanism is positive and about as naturally ergonomic as they come. keeping the “booger picker away from the bang button’ while arms and hands are flying yet allows for an extremely natural and fast practiced draw (read smooth…). I like the fact that they gave consideration to a “chop shield” as well as belt and paddle considerations. Admittedly limited firearms models are available (but what can you do?) My personal favorite on the range.
