G-Code INCOG For M&P Shield

First Impressions of the INCOG Holster by G-Code

G-Code INCOG Holster For M&P Shield

I’ve been on a holster hunt for all of my pistols for a couple years. There are some I’ve found and love and others that end up in the holster graveyard. I recently pulled the trigger (pun intended) on a G-Code holster called the INCOG which is an inside the waistband kydex custom holster. What makes it custom? Well, you order it to your specifications. I ordered mine with the full slide guard on the back and four holes as opposed to the standard three for the ride height options on the back.

In the video you will notice the craftsmanship and build quality. The fine men and women over at G-Code put out some amazing products and this one so far has not failed to live up to their reputation. The cost for the holster was $69.95 and shipping roughly $10.00 but I was able to save on shipping by using the discount code “SOOTCH00”. As far as I know that code is still valid and using it made my total order including tax and shipping just under $72.00 shipped.

I plan to wear this holster with different outfits over the next couple weeks and will come back with a full review with another video including different outfits. The felt on the outside of the kydex makes it very comfortable to wear and have against your skin. It’s very light and as you can see in the video it has a slim profile which is what initially attracted to it much like my Phlster holster for the Glock 19.

I’m always on the search for the next IWB holster for my Glock 19. This custom kydex holster by Phlster is called the “skeleton” and retails for a reasonable $40.00 and is well worth it. I discovered the holsters via Rebecca who is also a great gun blogger.

I decided to do a little comparison with a couple of my other conceal / open carry holsters for my Glock 19. I apologize for the sniffling during the video, I was getting over a cold and didn’t realize how mcuh I was doing it, but none the less you at least get to see me demonstrate the inside the waistband holster.

Tipton Best Gun Vise Review

Gun Vise Review – Tipton Best Gun Vise


I’ve been using the Tipton Best Gun Vise for about a year now, and I have to say, I would buy it again. I’ve come to find that it’s now come down in price from what I originally paid for it. It’s on Amazon for around $50-$75 which is a great value compared to the $99.95 I paid for it at my local gun shop. Regardless, it’s a fantastic gun vise that I’ve used to clean my AR15, Ruger 10/22 and my AK47. The only adjustment I really make is changing the center point rest from a horizontal to a vertical position when cleaning my AR15. This puts the lower receiver up a little higher which is nice when I don’t want to remove the front take down pin and completely remove the upper receiver just to clean the weapon.

I posted a Video review on my YoutTube channel a while back but thought I’d make a post about it as well for those who are looking at different gun vises, especially when they want to use it for multiple rifles.
