Black Rhino Concealment and the Road Rash Test

Have you ever wondered what would happen to a Black Rhino Concealment (BRC) holster if it was involved in a 70MPH motorcycle crash? It turns out that, at least in one case, the answer is… not much. This BRC TCS for the Glock 42 went through exactly that and it still usable and the G42 stayed in the holster the entire time.

BRC AR-15 Magazine Carrier

The new Black Rhino Concealment (BRC) AR-15 Magazine Carrier is now available on their website. I have had one of these for more than a year for testing and I can say that, after all that time, it is my favorite kydex AR-15 mag carrier.

There are two things that really set this magazine carrier apart for me. First, it is extremely compact. It has a fold over design and a Tek-Lok mounted directly to the back which keep its quite narrow compared to two-piece designs. It is also cut shallow which coupled with its versatile retention method helps it fit a wide variety of magazines including 20 round mags. I mention 20 round magazines specifically because some carriers are too deep and do not present enough of the magazine to get a good grip on them, if they even accept them at all. That isn’t a problem with the BRC AR-15 Magazine Carriers.

The second thing that sets these apart is that retention method that I already mentioned. This carrier uses friction to retain the magazine but the friction is applied via a rib that runs from the top of the carrier to the bottom. This allows the retention to feel consistent regardless of the type of magazine being carried and makes it very easy to achieve the desired level of retention via the adjustable retention screws.

These are a great piece of kit. I like them so much that, now that they are available, I’ll be purchasing a second one. Check out the new AR-15 Magazine Carrier at Black Rhino Concealment.

Black Rhino Concealment Trigger Guard Holster

It seems that there is a new holsterish thing that does not cover the trigger guard coming to market every week. Most of them are terrible. A few, like some of the clips that attach to the handgun, aren’t terrible but should still make you a bit nervous due to the exposed trigger guard. I generally recommend carrying with a proper, full-coverage holster but if you insist on something other than that please consider using something like the Trigger Guard Holster from Black Rhino Concealment (BRC).

BRC makes the Trigger Guard Holster for a number of common firearms. It snaps onto the trigger guard, completely covering it and adding only minimal bulk to the overall size of the handgun. To use it with something like a handgun clip you would simply hitch the short static cord on your belt. The static cord quickly reaches the extent of its length during the draw stroke which automatically removes the Trigger Guard Holster from the handgun. It can also be used without a clip in the same manner.

These types of holsters are actually handy for a number of storage and carry uses. Check out the Trigger Guard Holsters at Black Rhino Concealment.

Review: Black Rhino Concealment TCSL Holster

I have been using a Black Rhino Concealment (BRC) TCSL Holster since August of last year. It has been my most commonly worn holster around our property and a frequent range companion.

Overview

The TCSL is a pancake style holster made from Kydex. The TCS is their standard holster and the TCSL, which is the subject of this review, is the light bearing version.

The TCSL features BRC’s 90/10 mold. Most kydex holsters mold approximately half the gun into one side of the holster and half the gun into the other side. BRC molds the gun so that it is mostly contained by the outer layer of kydex. This allows the inner layer, the layer closest to the wearer, to be only lightly molded which presents a flatter, more comfortable surface to the wearer’s side.

Observations from Use

I want to camp on the 90/10 mold that BRC uses since that is what makes this holster unique in the market. I have noticed that it is very comfortable both inside the waist band and outside the waist band. It was anticipating that it would mostly make a difference when being worn inside the waistband but I was surprised to find that it reduced hotspots outside the waistband as well. I would say this is an extremely comfortable holster – especially for an all-Kydex construction holster.

BRC does not provide adjustable retention on their TCS holsters and I like that. I generally prefer holsters without adjustable retention adjustment screws seem to do nothing but loosen over time. The retention is more than sufficient. You could probably call it moderate. It would be nice if BRC could let the user choose the degree of retention when they order their holster to accommodate those who might lighter or more aggressive retention.

A good kydex holster is molded so that it feels like it only retains on the trigger guard or, in the case of a light bearing holster, it should retain on the light. This is what allows the distinctive click-in and click-out that good kydex holsters exhibit. Poorly molded holsters can causes hitches in the draw or make it more difficult to insert the handgun. The TCSL is a well molded holster. It clicks in positively and release the handgun quickly. BRC has done a good job of blocking around the light while also providing sufficient trigger coverage. The sight channel is generous.

BRC’s sweat guard runs all the way up the full length of the slide so it provides good coverage. However, it is also cut away fairly aggressively to allow a good grip on the handgun right out of the holster.

BRC TCSL Back

The back of the TCSL is lightly molded for comfort. There is even less impression into the back panel on the non-light bearing TCS holster.

BRC uses injection molded wing-like belt loops. These wings do  good job of holding the holster in close to the wearer and spreading the weight of the gun. They are very stable and have held up well to several months of wear.

The fit and finish is very good on my TCSL with one exception that does not effect function. The edges are lightly rounded and well polished. The eyelets are consistent and well formed. The mold has acceptable definition. The issue is where the kydex is folded to cover the lens of the light. It covers completely but because of the 90/10 mold, this bit of kydex must be folded over quite a bit which leads to bit of a sloppy look. It doesn’t look very clean but it has ZERO negative effect on function. Many makers do not cover the lens completely to avoid this but BRC chooses to provide full coverage.

I also want to share a story to give you an idea of the types of guys you are dealing with at BRC. I needed a holster for an East German Makarov that was given to me by my grandfather. I have been looking for one on and off for years. There just aren’t a lot of choices unless you want junk. I have asked several holster makers over the years if they happened to have a Makarov to mold a holster with and was always greeted with a “No. Sorry.” Geno at BRC said they didn’t have one but that he could make something happen. He then proceeded to call people he knows to track down a Makarov. The result is that I have one of their TCS holsters for my cherished East German Makarov. BRC takes care of customers.

Wrap Up

The Black Rhino Concealment is a very comfortable holster thanks to the 90/10 mold. While my example does have a fit and finish issue, the holster functions exactly as it should. My holster has served me well and it has become my go-to outside the waistband holster.

If you are one of those shooters who finds kydex holsters a bit uncomfortable, you should definitely check out Black Rhino Concealment. They might change your mind.

Disclosure: This holster was provided to me free of charge by Black Rhino Concealment for review.
