Comp-Tac Victory Gear Top Holster Choice at 2016 IDPA National Championships – Five Years Running

HOUSTON, Texas – ( – Comp-Tac Victory Gear remains the top holster choice among IDPA members, according to the results of the equipment survey conducted by the International Defensive Pistol Association during their 2016 National Championship this past September. This is the fifth year in a row that Comp-Tac was named the number one holster brand in both the competition holster category and the concealed carry holster category.


The survey found that among the 323 holsters reported by competitors, more than a third (37%) of the respondents shot the match using a holster manufactured by Comp-Tac Victory Gear.

In addition to being the top holster for competition, of the 221 IDPA competitors who answered the concealed carry survey, the majority (15%) indicated Comp-Tac as their preferred holster choice.


“Knowing what equipment competitive shooters and concealed carry participants use is a key part of knowing what products to keep making and how to serve our customers better. The equipment survey that IDPA puts out every year is a key part of helping our business grow and a way to learn what they want next,” explained Gordon Carrell, General Manager and Comp-Tac Team member.

“We are honored to be the top holster brand for these individuals in both their competition and concealed carry use. We only hope we can keep bringing them the quality and functionality they are looking for when purchasing their products in the future. We are very thankful to IDPA for helping us learn this information.”

The 2016 IDPA National Championship equipment survey was conducted among the 337 competitors with 323 indicating a competition holster preference and 221 indicating a concealed carry holster preference.
