Why Us

We are a holster company out of Carrollton, Georgia specializing in handcrafted Kydex gun holsters. We are a two man shop that make holsters by day and are active law enforcement officers by night. Our backgrounds are not only in law enforcement but also include building, engineering and design. These skill sets give us the opportunity to not only create great reliable products but to also test them in real life instances. Before we ever introduce a product we have engineered, it is tested not only by us but by others. We want to know if the holster is reliable and comfortable. If the product doesn’t pass every test it is destroyed.  Our promise to you is that we will not give you a product that we ourselves would not trust our life too. 

 

 

There are thousands of companies out there that sell Kydex holsters; some make great products, while others make products that can’t properly hold your weapon while you’re walking, let alone running. Some lesser holsters will even cut fruit and vegetables because of the sharp edges on them. Do you really want that against your skin? Do you want to depend on a product in a life or death situation when the person making the holster doesn’t care enough to test the product first? 

Here at Formidable Force Holsters we take pride in our work. All of our holsters are test fit and put through multiple trials so that we guarantee each one’s reliability. Comfort is important to us. We make sure that there are no sharp edges on our holsters. We do not use the industry standard Blue Guns to craft our holsters; we use actual firearms, exact CNC machined molds, and exact molds taken from actually firearms that are accurate down to a ten thousandth (10,000) of an inch. We go through all of this so that we can produce beautiful, reliable, handcrafted products that you can depend on in a life or death situation. If you have any questions or would like to leave a comment please email  formidableholsters@gmail.com.

What is your warranty? 

We have a lifetime warranty on all of our products no matter if you bought it from us or from a friend.

Just please drop us an email first at formidableholsters@gmail.com. Your item goes to the front of the line and will be completed as quickly as possible. This warranty can be voided however. Do not alter the holster. An example of this is cutting it with a Dremel or using a hairdryer or heat gun on it, etc. We do not cover the holster in the event of theft or misuse. An example of misuse is throwing it into a fire to see how long it takes to melt.  We reserve the right not to warranty any item for any reason (we must put this statement in to protect ourselves). 

When do you bill my credit card?

We will bill your credit card at the time of your purchase.

What thickness of Kydex do you use?

We use the industry standard .08 thickness or 80 thousandths of an inch. This is incredibly strong and durable while offering a little flexibility and great concealment properties. We also use .125 thickness which is incredibly thick with almost no flexibility when the need for special products arrises. 

What is the “Cant” of a holster?

Cant is the degree at which the holster sits. Zero degree cant will sit straight up and as you increase the degree of the cant the holster rocks forward. 

What is a “Sweat Shield”

A sweat shield is there to protect the gun from coming in contact with your sweat and skin. Sweat shields typically come in mid and full. A mid sweat shield will go up midway from the top of the gun and where the holster typically starts. A full sweat shield goes all the way to the top of the gun.

Are your holsters handmade?

Yes they are! We have spent years perfecting this craft. All holsters are formed in our presses using real or exact replica guns. They are then cut, sanded and polished by hand to give you a holster that has no sharp edges, beautiful definition and great retention capabilities. 

Will a Kydex holster wear the finish of my gun? 

A gun is a tool and is meant to be used. All holsters leather or Kydex will cause some wear on your gun. Kydex holsters tend to wear less than leather holsters on the guns finish. This because the inside of Kydex holsters are smooth and you can clean them out much easier than leather. Leather holsters tend to hold dirt that acts like sandpaper against the finish of your gun. The bottom line is if you want to keep your gun looking brand new, put it in a safe and never practice with it. If you want to carry and practice with your weapon, well we can help you with that.
