Tanker Holsters Reviews
Tanker holsters have come a long way since their introduction into the military. Initially used in the oil industry, a Tanker holster is a specialized type of pistol holster. Used by both civilian and military personnel alike, these specialized holsters allow for the easy movement of a handgun in an unobtrusive and secure manner. The following paragraphs will provide you with an in-depth look at some of the advantages of using a Tanker holster as opposed to a traditional pistol holster.
One of the key benefits of the m3 style of Tanker holster is its ease of use. Unlike the regular pistol or open carrier holster which can often be cumbersome in its design, these specialized holsters are designed to be extremely comfortable. In addition, they fit comfortably within your waistline which allows for an extremely quick draw or holster. Because of this feature, military and civilian personnel alike have utilized the use of Tanker holsters to carry their handguns during operations ranging from patrol to combat.
Another important feature found in many of the newer MHS (medium duty) Tanker holsters is the lack of hip straps. Rather than being attached to your hips, the carrier of a Tanker holster is located within your waist. This allows for a much more comfortable and stable fit rather than having to worry about adjusting your belt and trying to place your holster on your hips. Since the carrier of a Tanker holster is located in your waist, it also makes the holster less likely to shift around should you ever become uncomfortable while carrying your gun.
Like most military gear, MHS Tanker holsters are designed to be extremely durable and resistant to extreme conditions. While many gun owners prefer the use of an MHS tanker holster over any other style of holster, military and law enforcement professionals utilize MHS shoulder holsters to conceal their weapon whether it is loaded or not. Unlike MHS shoulder holsters, MHS chest holsters are designed to be worn over a shirt sleeve. Because of this, these types of MHS chest holster carriers will typically require that the wearer wear an extra layer of clothing over the exposed portion of the gun.
In addition to being extremely durable, many military and law enforcement personnel prefer the look of an MHS Tanker holster to that of other styles of gun carriers. Unlike MHS shoulder holsters, the top of the shoulder section of a Tanker holster has been dyed to mimic the finish of a vehicle. In fact, the dye used on many of the MHS Tanker holsters we have seen has been so closely duplicated as to seem almost a part of the original material itself.
MHS (medium duty) Tanker holsters were originally created for the United States Army in the early to mid-1990’s. The original design was created by Corporal Mike Kubota to be worn as a back pack type of holster. He was then hired by Schrade Corporation to create the style of holster they are familiar with today. Originally designed for the United States Marine Corps, the Marine Corps still utilize the MHS type of holster in its vests and other accessories. The Marine Corps called the new style of holster “medium duty joined jan.”
Today, the style of MHS Tanker holster is extremely popular among the United States Military. Kubota developed the original design for the holster in an attempt to improve upon the poor shooting conditions encountered in Vietnam. The holster was improved in other ways, including the color of the fabric. Many of the vests and other accessories for the Marine Corps still use the original 8 moa dyed fabric.
MHS, or medium duty joined feb, Marine Corps tanker holsters are often referred to as a “tubular mount” or “tubular straps.” This terminology refers to the ease by which two items such as a vest or a gun can be holstered together with the straps being connected via a single line of nylon rather than having two separate straps connected by metal laces. When the straps are attached to the vest, the ends of the straps form a “T” to fit the shoulder. On the other hand, when the straps are removed from the vest, the ends of the straps form a “V” to sit comfortably on the shoulder. This terminology may seem complicated, but it is easy to see how the terminology can mean the same thing.
