Blackhawk Issues Response on Safety of Light-Bearing Holsters

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. –– Blackhawk®, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, has released the following statement as a reply to safety concerns that have been issued from firearms manufacturers on the associated use of light-bearing holsters.

“While Blackhawk appreciates handgun manufacturers cautioning holster users about light-bearing holster safety, we feel bound to point out that Blackhawk is unaware of any of these numerous uncommanded discharges with light-bearing holsters to have involved a Blackhawk T-Series holster. Our designs are weapon-light model specific and greatly minimize the gap found on the other generic weapon-light model design holsters.”

As the world’s first thumb driven, dual-injected molded holster, the T-Series is Blackhawk’s premier duty-rated holster. Designed to follow Blackhawk’s Master Grip Principal, all T-Series holsters are specifically developed to allow the user’s hand to land naturally where it should in order to deploy the sidearm. To date, the T-Series has been chosen by more than 3,200 law enforcement agencies as their duty holster of choice both in the U.S. and abroad.
