In Greek mythology, Centaurs were wild, untamed beasts with the body of a stallion and the torso, head and arms of a man. 

The Centaur is our Light-Bearing Half-Breed Inside the Waistband (IWB), and is so named because it is part light-bearing handgun holster, part single magazine carrier.


  • The Centaur is designed to be worn in the appendix position (12 to 2 o’clock) position, but we've found that it performs best right at the 12 o'clock position - the holster hooks onto your belt and is worn inside your pants. When carrying in the 12 o'clock position, it is sometimes helpful to offset your belt buckle by about an inch to either the right or left side; this gives the holster enough room to hook onto your belt without interfering with the belt buckle.
  • Depending on your body type, this holster is a good option for carrying concealed in the appendix position when using a weapon-mounted light. It will not function without a light/laser attachment (read more below).

About This Holster

The Centaur is molded to fit a specific handgun model with a particular weapon-mounted light attached, and matching single magazine; your handgun will only fit in the holster that is designed specifically for it. This holster will only accommodate the gun with a specific weapon-mounted light attached, such as the TLR1 or Inforce APL; The Centaur will not function properly without the light or laser attached. If you are not running a light on your gun, you’ll want to check out the non light-bearing version of The Centaur: The Minotaur V2.

HELPFUL TIP: Because of its large design, The Centaur is definitely not the holster for everyone. A large number of customers swear by it, but others find that it can feel a bit bulky in your waistline, depending on your body type, the size of the gun and weapon-mounted light/laser you're carrying, and whether or not you're running extended base plates on your magazines. It may be wise to read this blog post before ordering The Centaur, as we do have a no-cancellation/no-return policy.

The Centaur comes with two of our Appendix Clips, which hook onto your belt. The clips are available in two different sizes: 1.5", which most belts will fit through, or 1.75". The clips also come with multiple predrilled holes, which allows for adjustable ride height and adjustable cant. You choose which size Appendix Clips you prefer during checkout - the particular size of clip that comes on this clearance item is listed above.  If you're not sure which size you need, you can always head over to our Extra Hardware section to purchase larger Appendix Clips. This style of clip also allows the customer to tuck their shirt in.

The holster comes with adjustable retention, which allows the customer to select a tighter or looser fit on both their gun and spare magazine. It is controlled by three screws that adjust the retention of the handgun and the magazine separately - the two screws that hold into place the appendix clip near the trigger guard will adjust the handgun retention. The screw at the top of the holster in between the gun and the magazine will adjust the magazine retention. 

The concealment claw on the left side (right side if you're a left-handed shooter) of the holster rests against the back side of your belt, forcing the grip of the gun further into the body than normal, aiding in concealment. This is something that most customers need to get used to, as it can be uncomfortable at first. Therefore, the concealment claw is detachable, in case you decide it’s something you’d rather do without.

The spare magazine carrier is molded with the bullets facing the gun.

This holster is made from one piece of Kydex, strategically molded around the gun and spare magazine, and fastened together with quality hardware. All of the hardware comes with a lifetime guarantee, and if at any time it breaks or is lost, we will replace it at no cost to the customer. 

DISCLAIMER: Please note that due to the amount of space necessary to accommodate a weapon-mounted light attachment, the top portion of the holster near the trigger guard will be wider than on a non-light-bearing holster. Depending on the exact dimensions of the particular weapon-mounted light, this open space is approximately 1/8" to 1/4". Please be assured that this is completely standard, and does not affect the functionality of the holster. As is the case whenever using a firearm, caution should be taken at all times to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.
