Safariland 7TS Patrol Holster

Officer Owen Griffith is a seven-year veteran on the force and has three years in SWAT. He’s also based in Oregon, and as you’ll see from the video, rain and fog are par for the course. Officer Griffith wears a Safariland® 7TS™ duty holster for three reasons—retention, durability, and adaptability.

RETENTION
“One of the most important things to a holster is the retention, and with the 7TS, their retention system is great,” says Officer Griffith. “Chasing after a suspect, effecting any sort of arrest, you don’t want to worry about your gun moving around…with this holster, it won’t.”
The 7360 holster used by Officer Griffith in the video is secured with the SLS (Self Locking System) rotating hood retention, offering a smooth draw in one motion. It can only be released by pushing down on the hood and rotating it forward at the same time, providing secure retention when moving, and greater protection against attempted firearm takeaways. The 7360 holster also includes a second level of retention, the ALS® (Automatic Locking System).

DURABILITY
The second reason Officer Griffith prefers the 7TS duty holster is its durability in all weather conditions. “Here in Oregon an important part for us is the elements,” says Officer Griffith. “You want a holster that’ll withstand the rain, the snow, the wind, anything that will come at us and with this holster we have that.”
Crafted from SafariSeven™—a proprietary DuPont™ nylon blend—the 7TS duty holster is extremely rugged, and will maintain its structural integrity whether it endures a day in the rain, or full submersion in water.

ADAPTABILITY
Policing doesn’t end when the sun goes down. The 7TS duty holster will fit the most popular gun lights, so officers can upgrade and change lights as desired. “There’s no issue if you’re switching out between different lights and different products there,” notes Officer Griffith.
