Before You Choose
Before you search our site for your new holster, you need to decide on your:
- Carry Position
To maximize draw speed and ensure a secure fit, every T.REX ARMS holster is designed for a specific gun (or gun/weaponlight combo). For example, your SIG or CZ won’t fit in a Glock holster.
So, don't spend your money until you know which gun you will carry.
Most modern semi-autos have an accessory rail near the muzzle-end of the gun, and we consider a rail-mounted light a high-priority accessory.
Carrying a gun with a weaponlight requires a “Light-Compatible” holster molded for that specific gun/weaponlight. Substitute one weaponlight for another, or remove your weaponlight, and poof! your Light-Compatible holster is now a pistol bucket with no retention. A mere shadow of its former self.
We recommend you look at what gun/light combos are supported by a holster before you buy both the holster and the light. To see what lights we recommend and holsters that work with them, explore our Pistol Light and Light-Compatible Holster pages.
3. Carry Position
Carry Position is a matter of priorities. You’ve got two basic categories:
IWB holsters are optimized to hide your pistol. When you choose an IWB holster, you sacrifice a little speed and comfort to keep discrete. Choose IWB for carrying your gun every day under normal clothes.
OWB holsters are the opposite. Your gun is visible, but you increase your weapon access, comfort, and mobility. Choose OWB for practicing at the range, duty use, competitions, or perhaps being a Rooftop Korean.
T.REX ARMS specializes in IWB holsters; our Sidecar holster has been the industry standard for 6 years. The Sidecar has a modular hinge system that allows you to choose between a variety of carrier attachments and swap them out as desired.
- Appendix Position: If you want to run the Sidecar in appendix-carry position (worn inside the waistband on the front of your body somewhere between the 11 o'clock position and the 1 o'clock position), you can run it with any of the attachments.
- 3-5 o’clock Position: If you want to run the Sidecar at 3-5 o’clock, use the Raptor Wing attachment. This will give you the stability you need while also allowing you to carry in a different position. A Raptor Wing is included with every Sidecar purchase.
The best way to carry a Ragnarok is with a Safariland UBL and a Thigh Strap. If you’re swapping out multiple holsters on the same belt, you’ll also want the QLS System. Otherwise, the UBL and Thigh Strap are all you need.
Whenever you order a Ragnarok and an attachment in the same order, we install that attachment for you.
