That thing actually looks like one of the speed holsters they use.

That is a RaceGlock in a holster for race guns:scrutiny:

That is a speed holster. Useful for Shooting games only. The barrel fits on a stud and the trigger guard snaps in a slot, while on your hip, grab the grip and pull front, and you have a Glunk in your hand. There is no real world application but games.

it's a CR speed holster, with I believe an arredondo accessories muzzle holder on it.

Race guns are stupid.


IMO, of course. :p

Race guns are stupid in the same way that Forumal 1 cars are stupid. The sports of competitive shooting much like competitive driving STARTED with some kind of practicle application. But, that has been distilled out in the name of fun and competition. Nothing wrong with having fun OR with competing.

:confused: Well, frankly, I don't know; but, then again, I think I want one! How do you think it'll go with my Royal Robbins 5.11 vest? :p

I always wondered how Han Solo drew his blaster so quickly. Now I know...

I remember one of the John Wayne westerns alluded to some sort of spring loaded holster for a slide action. Big Jake I think.

I never did get the whole racer mentality, but really it is just a sport. Just remember it's not a real world carry holster.

NASCAR

Bootleggers in the south paid the best/fastest drivers to deliver their product past the Revenuers. After awhile competitions were held for the fastest drivers. It grew up to be NASCAR.

I guess it IS possible to make a Glock uglier.

HOLY CRAP!!! They actually did it! Thay made a Glock even uglier than when it came out of the box. Didn't think that was possible.

Obviously you haven't seen them with the factory Olive Drab frame yet....

Bleccch...Maybe it grows on you...

(This from a dyed-in-the-wool glock guy...)

Glocks are supposed to be black.

I mentioned F1 because that is the equivalent of the race gun. It bears little resemblance to a "REAL" car. Just like a race gun bears little resemblance to a "REAL" gun. When both sports started the competitiors generally used "off the shelf" products.

I understand the analogy about he cars vs. guns, but you said both began with 'some kind of practicle application.' I would argue that while racing began as a means to see who's car was faster, i am not sure what pratcial application that has. Such is not to say practical applications did (or do) not come from racing. Many improvements in modern automobiles have a history (or at least a testing phase) in a racing series somewhere.
One thing I will point out, it takes a great deal of skill to drive a formula 1 car (more so than your everyday mustang). Probably same can be said for many of these race guns.

You are correct! The pistol was a Bergman, and after Michael gave it to brother James, he talked about maybe putting a spring in the bottom of that "fancy holster".

Sorry, but one of my favorite Duke movies, I've seen it WAY to many times. :D

Very Volvo-esque -- square, boxy, reliable, fast and decently powered. :)

Form follows function. Every element of that pistol is dedicated to one thing, and I can see the beauty in that.

But I still have no use or desire for one.
