BLACKHAWK has just announced the release of their new Omnivore pistol holster. The BLACKHAWK Omnivore is a multiple handgun holster, designed to adapt to dozens of the most popular handguns on the market today. The new Omnivore is a direct answer to Safariland’s GLS Pro-Fit holster, designed by famed holster maker Bill Rogers and released at SHOT Show last year. The current Omnivore is a Level II retention holster, but with enough interest I’m sure a Level III will follow.
BLACKHAWK has been both praised and vilified for their products. Originally founded by retired Navy SEAL Mike Noell who experienced a failure of equipment during combat, BLACKHAWK exploded on the market in 1993 with a variety of purpose-built accessories and clothing items. BLACKHAWK very quickly became a strong competitor to extremely popular brands like 5.11, and Safariland.
