The Blackhawk! Omnivore Non-Light Bearing Holster is a Level 2 retention holster that, due to its innovative method of securing the firearm, is compatible with most semi-automatic handguns that feature a dustcover-mounted accessory rail. Rather than securing to the firearm’s trigger guard, the Omnivore uses a proprietary Rail Attachment Device, which allows the injection-molded polymer holster to accommodate more than 150 different styles of pistols. Models of Omnivore for handguns bearing either a Streamlight TLR or Surefire X300 pistol-mounted light are also available. Price: $59. Contact: Blackhawk; (800) 379-1732; blackhawk.com.

Collectors refer to these shortened carbines as “trappers,” but that term was never officially used by either Winchester or Marlin. Winchester referred to them as “Baby Carbines” or “Special Short Carbines” on the rare occasions when they were cataloged.
The term “inside out” can be taken literally or applied as a phrase to describe the thoroughness with which an idea is understood. In this month’s issue, we hope to illustrate that the latter especially is used as a guiding principle to keep the American firearm industry at the top of its game.
