Blackhawk’s Your Right 2 Protect (YR2P) initiative educates new and experienced gun owners alike by helping them select the right holster and feel more confident, prepared, and protected when carrying a firearm. The company has been providing civilian enthusiasts with a variety of the holsters trusted by military and law enforcement agencies for more than two decades, and the YR2P program is an ideal outreach for the millions who have joined the ranks of gun owners in the past year.
The initiative goes above and beyond simple a holster-and-firearm compatibility resource. Through the multi-faceted campaign, Blackhawk helps educate consumers on proper firearms handling and techniques through online resources, tools and videos. Among those is the company’s a purpose-built Holster Selector Tool on Blackhawk.com, which helps gun owners choose the right holster for their preferred style of carry.
“Over the last several months, we’ve seen a surge in individuals exercising their right to firearm ownership, particularly those new to shooting,” said Evan McNamara, director of product development for Blackhawk. “That’s why we developed the YR2P initiative. We wanted it to serve as a way to educate and guide both new and experienced gun owners. With resources covering everything from how to select a holster to the different options for carry, we want to continue to build confidence among gun owners all while welcoming them to the 2A community.”
Additional YR2P resources available to gun owners include the Blackhawk Carry Positions Guide. This downloadable PDF helps to educate consumers on carry position terminology and the differences in holster designs and styles. Blackhawk also offers a full lineup of videos with carry tips for all seasons and types of clothing—from casual to athletic and even business. The website includes testimonials and ambassador spotlights.
