6. Henry Holsters AIWB / IWB Series
The Spark (light bearing) and Flint holsters are minimalist, fold-over style holster that attaches with two snap loops. There are various options for loops and clips, but we always like the Discreet Carry Concepts metal spring clips. The Concealment Kick on the back of the holster both tips the muzzle out away from body and rotates the grip in towards the user’s hip, improving concealment. Holsters for the X300, TLR1, TLR7, TLR8 and APLc have adjustable retention which can be fine tuned by the pair of screws next to the light-channel..
