Here we are in the middle of the desert practicing on how to draw the weapon from the holster. When all the sudden I see this kid, fumbling with his holster right as I began to yell draw and fire. I yelled, “the range is cold” as I walked up to this kid to see what was going on with him. I looked at him and asked if there was
a problem? He responded to me, “just getting the holster ready to fire.” I told him, “do you know this is a dry fire exercise and you just have to get the technique right?” He said, “yes Chief!” I explained to him, “get with it then.” I walked back to my mark and said, “make ready! Ready? Fire!” As each one of my line coaches looked on the students to make sure they were learning the proper movement to draw and fire.
After doing that movement several more time, I had all the students lock their weapon slide back to practice some malfunctions. Just as I gave the order to lock the slide back, I noticed the same kid lock his slide back and saw a live round eject from his weapon, hitting the Sailor standing next to him. I could not believe it! But I will have to stop there. Because if you know any Chiefs and you witness a high risk safety violation on the range, well then you know why I had to stop.
See, when we need to find the right equipment to preform the right job, there is only one name comes to mind when you have to draw from the holster! That TYR Tactical! TYR Tactical has an awesome line up for gear, and with the right belt you too can draw your secondary weapon with easy.
This one of a kind belt they claim to hold their name has been chosen well. It is called the “Gunfighter belt.” Why? Because of the versatile rigger load carriage belt. It has webbing around the belt as well as a sewn hard point is also provided for either rappelling, safety lanyard. The buckle is a very unique style system that detaches with pressing the top and bottom leavers. It really is that quick.
