Jess Tries Out Foxtrot Holsters


I’ll admit that I’m slightly obsessed with the Safariland QLS system. It makes swapping out firearms a breeze. So, when I asked Foxtrot Holsters to equip their Sig P320 kydex holster to accommodate the QLS Fork, I was blown away with their willingness to meet my request. This company is easy to work with, and there’s foresight in their designs. Instead of simply handing me a holster with a few holes punched out, they also lengthened the holster in case I ever decide to mount a light or add a threaded barrel. Translation: I don’t have to purchase a second holster to meet any future requirements. This makes sense, as Zach explains, “I treat every holster I make as though I would be carrying it myself.” That extra level of thoughtfulness and attention to detail is something every gun enthusiast can get behind.

Zach, the founder of Foxtrot, explains. “Everyone needs to have an art form, this is mine.” The company derived out of Zach seeing a need for quality holsters that weren’t outrageously priced. Foxtrot’s mission is simple, “People should be able to carry quality gear, that meets high expectations of safety and comfort, without paying triple-digit prices. Foxtrot makes holsters for a wide variety of groups, from everyday carriers, competitors, and law enforcement. Foxtrot has sent off care packages to military personnel groups – but at the end of the day, we want our gear to be diverse enough to reach anyone exercising their right to protect themselves and their families. This is one of the reasons why Foxtrot offers discounts for public servants: military, law enforcement, first responders, and educators. “

So, how does this holster hold up (mind you, I don’t baby my gear)? 

Now, down to the details: I took this holster with me for multiple range sessions, on multiple days. The first thing I had to do was ease back the retention by loosening the screws, but that took a couple of seconds to find that sweet spot. After that, I did a lot of one-shot draws to maximize the amount of time I was utilizing the holster. 

A little about my P320. It’s a compact and the only upgrade is an Apex flat-faced trigger. This trigger has over 3,000 rounds on it. This trigger is simply phenomenal. Eventually, I will upgrade the sights, I just haven’t gotten to it yet.

Range Time

Then the Accelerator Drill: 

Targets are staggered at 7 yards, 15 yards, and 25 yards. Each is set apart 1 yard laterally.

Two hits on each target, reload, then work your way back, looking for clean Alphas throughout. Varying distances means you’re going to have to learn when to throttle back or speed up depending on the target. It’s an easy drill to set up and it teaches you how to switch gears effectively depending on the distance. As we all know, paper doesn’t lie.

Next session: Rifle to handgun transitions:

Using my LWRC M6-A2 on a Vicker’s Blueforce sling, one shot with the AR, transition to the pistol, one-shot, reholster, repeat.

The Verdict: 

The construction of this holster is durable and well finished. The edges are beveled with no rough edges, it allows a generous amount of front sight clearance allowing for sight upgrades. The retention is easily adjustable by manipulating the screws, and the mold retention isn’t so strong you can’t adjust it, yet if you were to lose a screw, you wouldn’t lose your gun. This holster holds up, works incredibly well with the QLS, and didn’t present any issues after the retention was adjusted. I’m very happy with this product.
