FAQS: Can I Use a Light-Bearing Holster Without the Light?

Posted by

Here at Alpha Concealment Systems, we offer a variety of gun holsters that will accommodate a weapon-mounted light or laser. We call these types of holsters LIGHT-BEARING. 

Question: Can I use my light-bearing holster when the light is not attached?

Answer: In short, no.

The light-bearing holsters that we manufacture are built around the specific set up you choose during checkout – i.e. the firearm you’re using and the weapon-mounted light that is attached.

This means that your holster will only accommodate that specific set up.

So when the weapon-mounted light is removed, the fit and function of the holster is compromised. Your retention will be off, and the firearm will not be securely holstered.

For safety reasons, we advise all customers to always use the proper holster for their set up – i.e. if the holster was made for a Glock 43 with TLR6, you should only use that holster for the Glock 43 with TL6 attached.
