Safariland announced the introduction of the GLS (Grip Locking System) series of holsters at the SHOT Show 2014. The GLS holster line features a patent-pending retention device which securely holds the firearm in place once holstered. The innovative retention mechanism is quickly and intuitively deactivated with the middle finger during the draw. Holsters with the all-new GLS retention provide weapon security with a very low-profile and ride close to the body, making them ideal for concealment.

“Safariland continues to explore innovative ways to produce secure holsters that are both easy to use and compact,” said James Dawson, Category Director, Safariland Duty Gear. “With the new GLS series we’ve achieved just that and created a low-profile, secure design with the easiest, most intuitive draw available.”

Similar to the proven ALS design, the GLS automatically locks the weapon in place once holstered. When drawing with a proper shooting grip, the middle finger is placed in the exact location of the locking mechanism, allowing it to sweep over the GLS releasing the firearm with a simple, straight-up draw out of the holster. GLS models also feature low-cut sides, aiding in concealment, speed and re-holstering.

The GLS series consists of three hip carry models to meet any carry preference. The Model 5378 Paddle/Belt Loop Combo includes both a paddle and a belt loop which can be easily changed out depending on the use desired. The Model 5377, offered with the belt loop only, is available in four widths: 1.5” (38mm), 1.75” (45mm), 2” (50mm) and 2.25” (58mm). The Model 5379 features a patent-pending highly secure belt clip that fits belt widths from 1.5” to 2.25” (38mm - 58mm). All models also feature Safariland’s standard 3-hole mounting platform making it compatible with all attachment systems including the popular QLS (Quick Locking System). 

All models feature the durable SafariLaminate wraparound construction which provides an excellent fit and a lightweight holster. These models are available in seven fits for the Glock 17/22, 19/23, 26/27, Smith & Wesson M&P 9/.40, M&P 9/40C, M&P SHIELD, and the Springfield XD-S. MSRPs are as follows: 5377 Belt Loop - $46.50; 5378 Paddle/Belt Loop Combo - $53.00; and the 5379 Belt Clip version is offered at $46.50. All models are available in Safariland STX finishes in a variety of colors. Later this year, an inside the waistband model will be released.
