Alpha Concealment Staff Member Featured on Female Firearm Enthusiast Website

Posted by

We're pretty proud of the culture we've built here at Alpha Concealment Systems, and we like to think that we do a stand-up job of providing a comfortable work environment for the men and women that make Alpha possible. And part of that involves ensuring equal opportunities for the Alpha females that work here. 

So when we found out that one of our own - Director of Communications Katrina Powell - was featured as a "Woman of Caliber" on the female firearm enthusiast website Pew Pew and Ponytails, we were thrilled! 

Katrina does an impeccable job handling just about everything communications-related, and it was exciting for us to see her featured as someone who is "helping to reshape and contribute to the firearm industry, not just on the range, but from behind the desks and screens of some of your favorite products." 

Check out the article here to learn a little more about Katrina, her background and how she's working to bridge the gender gap in the firearms industry.

Is Purse Carry the Worst Carry?

It’s been said that purse carry is the worst carry. And I’ve done my homework, so I don’t necessarily (completely) disagree with the arguments. For instance, perhaps one of the most important rules of concealed carry (other than safety concerns, training, etc.) is that you have to dress around your gun. I agree.But as a woman, it can be [...]

​What’s Wrong With Carrying a Spare Magazine in My Pocket?

Since our Product Showroom opened a few months ago, I’ve had the pleasure of introducing a lot of people to the benefits of Kydex. Many times, customers would come in thinking we’re a leather shop, and they were disappointed to learn we only produce Kydex holsters.I constantly heard, “I don’t like that plastic stuff!” or “That’s not going to [...]

We're a Different Kind of Company, And We Like It That Way

It's not uncommon these days to hear companies refer to themselves as "innovative" and "inventive" - especially when it comes to Kydex holster makers.Some of their claims certainly have merit, but more often than not, Product A manufactured by one company, is quite similar to Product B from another company. Now, I’m not arguing that all Kydex holsters are created equal, [...]

New Product Spotlight: The Gryphon

Since we unveiled our Centaur IWB holster last year, our customers have fallen in love with the "claw" we added to aid in concealment. So many of you asked for that feature on our other holsters, but we couldn't make it work with their existing designs. Instead, we've come up with something so much better: [...]

The Rise of Gun Ownership Among Women

Think that there's only one type of Second Amendment supporter? I hate to shatter the preconceived notions that thousands of uninformed Americans hold (who am I kidding? I don't hate it at all), but you've got the gun community all wrong. There is growing evidence to support that those traditional oversimplified images of gun owners are far [...]

Is a Holster With a Built-In Magazine Carrier Right For Me?

With the advent of our Minotaur IWB holster last year, a growing number of customers are all asking the same question: is an all-in-one holster right for me?Our Minotaur IWB holster is categorized as the “total package” because it’s part handgun holster, part single magazine carrier. And that’s something a lot of customers literally begged us to create. So we listened [...]
