About the Shadow


    The Shadow Kydex holster is a product of my bad memory.  No joke.  I built a custom Kydex holster for a friend way back before Reign Tactical was even an idea.  He wanted the sight channel cut down to the breech face, a low front guard and multiple adjustable retention points.  I took a picture of it once I finished and I took it to him.  He liked it.  Fast forward a few years.  He got a different pistol and asked for the same holster for it. I searched everywhere for the picture I took of the first holster but I couldn't find it.  I thought I remembered how it looked so I told him I would build him one.  I built his first holster for him way back before I ever had any original designs.  The holster didn't have a name.  I didn't even have a sketch of the design.  Back then when I built a holster I would just wing it and hope for the best.  Here I am with a request for an identical holster.  My skill level has increased tremendously, my tastes have changed, my attention to certain details have been developed quite a bit.  I decided to wing it again.  When I finished, I had what we call the Shadow. I thought it looked like the one I originally built for him.  Thats the image I saw in my head.  About a year later I was going through one of my old phones pictures out of curiosity.  THERE!!!!!  THATS THE HOLSTER!!!!   WOW, I couldn't have gotten it more wrong if I tried.  The first holster and the second holster looked absolutely nothing alike.  The only thing they had in common was the color.  There was an upside to this embarrassment though.  The experience I built the second holster with allowed me to build a superior holster to the first one.  The second holster wasn't anything like the first one but it was a much better holster.  I built another one and wore it a while.  I made a few modifications and passed a few around as tester holsters.  Today, the Shadow Kydex holster has earned a solid place in our lineup.

    Two years ago, we took the Shadow holster a step further and turned it into a double layer.  The double layer Shadow Holster is available for order also.

Hand

This option is asking which side of your body you will be carrying your pistol / holster on.  Are you right or left handed?


Cant

The Cant is the degree at which the holster rides.  0º has the barrel pointing straight down.  

Sweat Guard

The Sweat Guard gets its name from the protection it offers the pistol from sweat.  The sweat guard is most often used as a barrier for ones shirt.  Tuck your shirt behind the sweat guard and it will prevent your shirt from falling into the holster when the pistol is drawn.  

Medium Sweat Guard is by far our most common.  It is approximately 1" short of being a Full Sweat Guard. 

Sweat Guard: None is our recommendation for holsters being worn in the Appendix Location.  A sweat guard tends to be uncomfortable when worn appendix.  

Sweat Guard: None  is our recommendation when using an OWB mount that offsets the holster from the body such as the G-Code RTI system.  

Below is an image showing approximate heights of Sweat Guards.  





Dependent Option:  The exception to the Sweat Guard height rule is this:

The Sweat Guard cannot be cut lower than the Front Guard.  It must be equal in height or higher than the front guard.  If you ask for no Sweat Guard and also ask for a standard front guard (Shooters Cut: NO) , your sweat guard will be the same height as your front guard.  If you want NO Sweat Guard, in the "Shooters Cut" option, choose "YES".  



Shooters Cut



Suppressor Sights

Commonly referred to as "Tall Sights" or "High Sights", this option will allow your holster to accommodate up to .500" tall sights.  Suppressor Sights are used with suppressors/silencers as well as with red dot optics.  

If you do not know whether your sights are Suppressor Sights, chances are, they're not.  The vast majority of night sights are not Suppressor Sights.  

Note:  The holster will work fine when built for Suppressor Sights whether you currently have Suppressor Sights on your pistol or not.  



Threaded Barrel

If you have plans of getting a threaded barrel in the future, we suggest you go ahead and have your holster built to accommodate it.  The holster will function fine when built to accommodate it whether you currently have a threaded barrel on your pistol or not.  



Front Color

The "Front Color" of the holster is the outer-most layer of Kydex.  In the picture below, the Front Color is the Purple Carbon Fiber layer.




We have more colors available than what is pictured here.  We are working on getting more color swatches added to this list.





Rear Color

The Rear Color is the layer of Kydex that is between the pistol and your body.  In the picture below, the Rear Color is the White Layer.





Edge Cut

Edge Cut will define a major factor in the overall appearance of your holster.  The pictures below show examples of the different cuts.  Keep in mind that different holsters will look differently even though they have the same edge cut.  A Slim Reign and a Bora's Reign, both with the Flow Cut, will look differently. These pictures are meant to show the basic idea of certain edge cuts and not to show you exactly what your holster will look like.  








Matching Mag Carrier

The "Matching Mag Carrier" option will carry over the holster color and cut options to the mag carrier.  If you choose War Edges for your holster, the mag carrier will match.  The same goes for Straight Edges, Waved Edges, Patrol Cut, Surf Cut, Flow Cut and Talon Flow Cut.  

Note: Some cuts cannot be transferred to a mag carrier.  For instance, the custom heart cut-out cannot be replicated on a mag carrier as there is not enough real estate on mag carriers.  The matching mag carrier for a custom heart cut-out will have a similar flow to the holster but not a heart cut-out.  All mag carrier cut-outs / windows will be a standard vertical slot cut.  


Mag Carrier's come with only a belt clip or TekLok mount.  




Mag Carrier Hand

"Mag Carrier Hand" is referring to which side you will be carrying the mag carrier on.  Usually, if you carry your pistol on your right side, you will carry your mag on your left side.  This option is not asking whether you are right or left handed.  

Mag Carrier Orientation

There really isn't a wrong answer for this option.  Ultimately, whatever you choose, train with it and become proficient.  

"Bullets Facing Forward" is the most common option and is the choice most often chosen by modern professionals.

"Bullets Facing Rear" was the common option for the old-school guys back in the day.

As with everything else, training methods have evolved.  Many of the old-school methods are still valid and are extremely powerful when mastered, the same as modern methods.  Ultimately, the only thing that matters is that you train with the orientation you choose and become proficient with it.  

Rush Order

The "Rush Order" will cut our standard lead time in half.  Our standard lead time is noted at the top of your screen on the white banner.  

    Does your wife or husband ever get upset that you spend too much on gun stuff?  It's a very common issue.  We have been pulled into quite a few marital disputes over the past 5 years.  We've even had a wife call and request to change her husbands holster color to pink.  Sometimes life could be made a little easier with a simple letter.  By choosing the "Marital Alibi" option, we will add a note to your package saying "Congratulations on winning this item!!!!".  A copy of your invoice and how much you paid will NOT be included in the package.  This option is a free service.

    The Marital Alibi started as a joke but we have received tons of positive feedback about it so it's here to stay.
