How Mission First Tactical achieves this is the use of Boltron, a durable thermal plastic that molds to every nook and cranny of a handgun. In the case of the Minimalist, it is molded around the trigger guard and fore-end of the pistol, keeping the trigger protected when the pistol isn’t in use, providing excellent support and passive retention.
Furthermore, it has a claw, which cuts down the profile of your pistol, keeping it firmly pressed against your side. If you need to reduce your gun’s print even more, the Minimalist AIWB system comes with a spacer to push the toe of the holster further away from your body and more into your side. The design also tends the facilitate a lightning-fast draw, and an audible “click” when fully reholstered.
The tuckable Minimalist offers a fairly flexible system as well. The holster is ambidextrous, boasts 20-degrees of cant adjustment and accommodates belts from 1 to 1.5 inches in width. There’s one catch to the rig. According to Mission First Tactical, for safety reasons, the Minimalist AIWB must be removed from your belt for reholstering.
The MFT holster is fairly light on the pocketbook, with an MSRP from $34.99 to $49.99. A good value, if you’re shooting to reduce the bulk of your EDC system.
