ur offices receive review
copies from a variety of
book publishers on a
semi-regular basis, and
although some of them
turn out to not be worth the postage
required to ship them, a few titles
catch our attention and merit further
mention.
This is particularly true during the
holiday season, and now that the dust has
settled on Christmas, New Years and
Valentine’s Day, our stack of books has
grown to perilous proportions. So, to ensure the safety of my fellow employees,
I’ve turned over this monthly space for a
few brief book synopses. To help with the
decisions, I’ve taken a quick office survey
to determine which titles deserve to rise
to the top of the stack.
Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty
fame has worked with co-author William
Doyle to produce “American Hunter:
How Legendary Hunters Shaped America” for Howard Books (a division of
Simon & Schuster).
As an admitted American history buff,
this one caught my attention right away.
In addition to the colorful personalities
(Boone, Crockett, Teddy Roosevelt, etc.)
profiled within, this title also covers the
histories of American game, including
fox, rabbit, deer, squirrel, duck, goose
and big-game hunting.

DESIGN
Johann Frederick Mendoza Art Director
Eric Knagg Design Director

At the other end of the time spectrum,
“The Longest Kill” by Sergeant Craig
Harrison from St. Martin’s Press is a
memoir by the British sniper (known as
Maverick 41) who holds the record for
longest confirmed kill: 2,475 meters. Harrison served in Bosnia, as well as two
tours each of Iraq and Afghanistan.
In “50 Guns That Changed the World”
(Skyhorse Publishing), prolific author
Robert Sadowski provides snapshot histories of a wide variety of iconic nineteenth
and twentieth century firearms. Although
the hardcover volume doesn’t break any
new ground, it includes a few lesserknown entries and is well illustrated with
a variety of photographs and period advertisements.
Finally, if you are seeking something
truly different, I’d be remiss if I didn’t
mention Tom McHale’s paperback series
of Insanely Practical Guides. McHale,
who doubles as the webmaster for mygunculture.com, proves that a knowledge
of firearms and a sense of humor are not
mutually exclusive. You can pick up any
and all of his titles at insanelypracticalguides.com.

MAGPUL OFFERS A NEW TAKE ON A CLASSIC GUN BELT,
WHILE SAFARILAND PROVIDES A ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALMOST-ALL
INJECTION MOLDED NYLON HOLSTER.
TEXT BY TIM STETZER, PHOTOS BY JIM HOLMAN AND MAGPUL

When you carry a gun every day, how you
carry it can become as important as what you
carry. If your carry system isn’t comfortable
or secure, you’re going to be much less likely
to carry on a regular basis. Two of the defining factors in figuring that out are your belt
and your holster.
I recently had the chance to work with
the new Magpul Tejas gun belt and the Safariland 578 Pro Fit Compact holster. Both
belt and holster provide some interesting
new features.

GUN WORLD | MARCH 2016 | www.gunworld.com

THE SAFARILAND 578
GLS PRO FIT HOLSTER
If you’ve been carrying a gun for any
length of time you probably have a drawer
full of holsters. Good holsters can be expensive and the more guns you have, the more
holsters you need. Or at least that’s how
things used to be.
Safariland has managed to design a holster that safely and securely carries a wide
range of weapons without modification,
meaning you can use one holster for multi-

ple guns. Their 578 Pro Fit series is a rugged
nylon injection molded holster that will fit
178 different guns in the same holster body.
Have a couple favorite carry guns? No problem. Use a different gun off duty than when
you’re working? They’ve got that covered too.
How about one gun for carry and another for
practice or weekend combat shoots at your
gun club? There’s a good chance a 578 GLS
Pro Fit will have you covered for all of them.
The list of compatible weapons is extensive and includes all of the standards like

GW-PRODUCTS-8-11.qxp 1/13/16 5:31 AM Page 9

Beretta, FN, Glock, Ruger, SIG, Smith &
Wesson and Walther, but also goes well beyond that with guns like the Bersa BP, the
Caracal F, the Century TP9, and the various
Tanfoglio and Sarsilmaz imports as well. If
you have a hard to fit modern pistol then
there’s a good shot the Pro Fit will work for
you.
The 578 is a modern injection molded design that comes in basic black and flat dark
earth finishes. It ships with both a paddle
and a belt loop attachment so you can set it
up how you prefer. Their proprietary nylon
material—SafariSeven—is lightweight and
nonabrasive to your gun.
The holster locks the weapon in via Safariland’s Grip Lock System (GLS), which is
disengaged with the middle finger of the firing hand during the draw. It’s fast and secure, and the release lever is close to the
body to provide increased protection from a
weapons retention standpoint.
You may think that a multi-fit holster
would be rather shapeless and blocky, but
Safariland has managed to keep the 578 very
compact and streamlined. It looks good and
rides close to the body for concealment, yet
still allows you to get a full grip on your
weapon for smooth draws. The belt loop is
adjustable for cant and allows the shooter to
use it in the cross draw position.
I have been using my 578 off and on for a
couple months now, and I’ve found that I
can carry my issue SIG P229 in it during
the day and swap out and carry my Glock 27
in the same holster if need be. It’s handy on
the range, too, since I can strap on one holster and then switch out my various guns
throughout the day as I practice.
MSRP is only $55, which makes the Pro
Fit very competitive in the holster market;
especially since it will fit a wide variety of
weapons.

“EL ORIGINAL”
TEJAS GUN BELT
It might seem odd to hear that Magpul is
making a gun belt, and maybe odder still
that it’s a high quality leather belt and not
some sort of polymer offering, but fear not,
they still manage to mix some of their modern material magic into an otherwise very
traditional belt.
The “El Original” is the initial release in
the Tejas Gun Belt line and it’s a solid entry.
I wear a gun belt every day in my capacity as

The 578 fits most common autos as well as a great many
not-so-common auto pistols. (Jim Holman photo)

Magpul offers the Tejas El
Original gun belt in black,
chocolate and light brown
finishes. (Magpul photos)

The Tejas supports its
rugged bullhide exterior
with a flexible polymer
backing that eliminates
stretch and allows for
closer spaced adjustment
holes. (Magpul photo)
