Review: Falco Shoulder/Belt Holster(Beretta 96 EliteII)

Hello Folks,

Thought I'd pass along some info on this holster rig to anyone in the market for this type of holster.

The entire set-up, to include shoulder straps, are leather. When I opened the bag, the smell of leather smacked me full in the face. The leather edging is professional, same as anyother brand that I've seen. The stitching is pretty heavy-duty. This model came with the appropriate double magazine pouch, also leather.

The one I purchased was for the Beretta 92 and has thumbsnap with a very rigid back snap, however, my 96 Elite2 does fit, although it is quite a bit snug, should conform to the thicker slide better after a little use.

An extra benefit of this holster is that it can also be worn as a strong side belt holster with both forward rake and vertical hi-ride. As I have been wearing it on the belt, I can say that it accomplishes this just as good as anyother of this type that I have tried, it really pulls the grip into the side. The holster itself is of the wrap-around Avenger-style, which happens to be one of my favorites.

I bought the holster from a local dealer for $54.95/new. They are also offered on http://www.makarov.com for $65, I believe was what the price they had listed. There are more photos on Falco's website at http://www.falco.sk .

A side note to this is this is the same exact holster that a buddy of mine picked up at a local market while we were deployed to Croatia several years back. I believe he paid about $20/US. Still, this is, in my opinion, a great deal on a holster of this quality.
