Floodlight2 Instructions

Start by watching the Quick Start video. Adjust your shock cord, then your retention screws. Because the Floodlight2 is a “universal” fit holster that accommodates a variety of guns, it requires a specific reholstering technique for best results. DO NOT attempt to reholster by fishing the muzzle of your gun into the top of the holster.

Do you need extra holster length?*

*If you’re carrying a longer-muzzled gun or a revolver, adding extra holster length may not be necessary for you, but for short semiautomatic guns, it’s often helpful.

Guns with short muzzles can be top-heavy and difficult to conceal comfortably. To solve this, some holsters have extra length added to the muzzle end. Like the keel on a boat, the extra muzzle length helps balance the holster, making it more comfortable and easier to conceal. This is especially true if you have a bit of a belly, which tends to push the grip out more and make the muzzle dig in.

Note that while extra muzzle length reduces grip printing, it can increase muzzle printing, which can be a concern with lower carry positions and tight fitting pants such as leggings or yoga pants.
