  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0007]
    In my quest to find the perfect concealment holster, I found that most every holster that I tried was either comfortable and hard to conceal, or uncomfortable and easy to conceal. My invention is both comfortable and easy to conceal.
  • [0008]
    U.S. Pat. No. D361,656, August 1995, Fogarty, Jr., shows a handgun holster similar to my invention but has two pockets of equal size for the concealment of two handguns or a backup magazine and also has a bias tape border along the top forward panel of the holster. The large equal sized pockets gives the holster an uncomfortable bulkiness and the bias tape border proved that a weapon could be easily snagged when retrieving it.
  • [0009]
    My holster offers a single pocket for the gun only and a smaller pocket for a backup magazine. This allows for a wider range of body movement. Also my invention does not have any seam what so ever on the top side of either forward or rearward panels but simply has a fold along the top sides so that it impossible to snag a firearm while retrieving it.
  • [0010]
    U.S. Pat. No. D283,043, March 1989, Pitts, shows a handgun holster that appears to be made of a material other than fabric. It also appears that it must be incorporated with another device to attach it to a user's body.
  • [0011]
    My holster is made of fabric and is light and flexible. It also has the advantage of having straps attached to secure it to the users body.
  • [0012]
    U.S. Pat. No. 4,235,356 November 1980 Maxwell, shows a handgun holster that is designed to be concealed under the users armpit and be held in the horizontal butt up position. This holster requires the user to wear an over shirt, vest or jacket to conceal the weapon. My holster only requires the user to be clothed from the waist down and the weapon is positioned in the vertical position for easy draw of the weapon.
  • [0013]
    U.S. Pat. No. 5,909,834 June, 1999, Parrott III, shows a handgun holster similar to my invention but has two pockets of different size for the concealment of a handgun and a backup magazine pocket that requires material to be stuffed into the pocket to take up space so the magazine can be easily retrieved. It also has a French cuff seam along the top edges of the rearward and forward panels joining several layers of fabric which includes a batting material between the materials and on the rear of the rearward panel. Also the forward and rearward panels are made of denim, which can absorb bodily fluids, and the straps that encircle the users waist are made of elastic, which has proven to cause the holster to sag over a period of use.
  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0014]
    My holster does not have any seam what so ever on the top side of either forward or rearward panels but simply has a fold along the top side so that it impossible to snag a firearm while retrieving it. The backup magazine pocket is sewn so to have a bottom so that no material is required to be stuffed in the pocket to take up space so the magazine can be easily retrieved. My holster also offers the least amount of fabric possible to obtain a sturdy pocket for holding a handgun. In addition, the forward and rearward panels are made of a water proof canvas duck cloth so not to absorb bodily fluids and the straps are made of rigid nylon webbing so not to sag over time.
