At the 2015 SHOT Show Safariland introduced the GLS Pro-Fit Holster. This holster is designed by famed Safariland holster designer, Bill Rodgers, and is an amazing advancement in polymer nylon holster designs. The GLS Pro-Fit holster will likely set the standard by which all polymer holsters will be gauged in the future. Richard and I had the opportunity to attend an invitation-only media event sponsored by Safariland to get introduced to the 578 GLS Pro-Fit holster by designer Bill Rogers.
The most incredible feature of the GLS Pro-Fit holster is the ability of the user to manually adjust the holster to fit dozens of different handguns. Until now, most polymer holsters were specifically tailored to the design specifications of a particular handgun. At best, a holster could fit handguns in the same line, such as the Glock 22/23/27. With the GLS Pro-Fit holster those options open up dramatically.
In a project that has been over a year in the making, Safariland has developed a single holster that can be sized to fit up to 177 different handguns. In essence, the Safariland GLS holster is as close to a universal holster that is available on the market today.
