I received an East German Makarov from my grandfather several years ago. This particular Makarov is not in perfect condition but it is very finely made and shoots very well… well enough that I have always wanted to be able to carry it. The problem was that 99 out of 100 Makarov holsters on the market are complete garbage. Search a popular auction sight for “makarov holster” if you don’t believe me.
For a period of about 4 years, I asked various kydex benders if they had a Makarov mold in their inventory that they could use to produce a holster for me. They all politely declined until I came across Geno at Black Rhino Concealment (BRC). I asked him and he said something to the effect of, “Say no more, fam” (or probably something more professional than that).
Geno and the rest of the BRC crew didn’t have an East German Makarov to mold the holster to so he went above and beyond. He actually started contacting people at the local range that he frequents until he tracked down an East German Mak which he used to produce one of their TCS holsters complete with their well-known 90/10 molding style. On top of that, he whipped up a magazine carrier to send with it as a surprise.
The holster is shown in the image above. You can see, written in paint pen, “BRC GW JTT.” The BRC stands for Black Rhino Concealment. The GW is Geno’s initials. The JTT is for Jerking the Trigger. How cool is that?
All of this happened before BRC was an advertising partner on Jerking the Trigger. Geno and the BRC crew basically just did this to help a guy out. When I say that JTT has great advertising partners, I mean it.
