We're discontinuing the Race Master holster line. All in stock holsters are on sale at 20% off.

Double Alpha holsters were used by more Open and Limited Division competitors at the 2015 and 2016 USPSA Nationals than any other holster. It's hard to keep a good thing a secret!

Now shipping with the magnetic slide-lock system! We are stocking the Racer holster in black for STI 2011 and Glock pistols, right hand only.

The Racer Holster designed for IPSC and USPSA practical shooting is the sibling of the Race Master Holster, which in 2010 became an overnight success, with thousands of shooters world wide retiring their older model holsters and upgrading to this latest innovation.

However, the all aluminum construction of the Race Master Holster makes it an expensive holster. So seeing the need for a less expensive variant of this successful design, we set out to develop the DAA Racer Holster.

At the heart of the new DAA Racer Holster lies the same innovative patent pending mechanism that makes the Race Master stand head and shoulders above the competition. But what the Race Master achieves with interchangeable Delrin inserts inside an aluminum housing, the Racer does with no housing at all. Same peak-performance driven result, without the high costs of machining.

We reduced costs further by eliminating the large external tension adjustment knob, which many deemed unnecessary, and set the tension to light (this can be adjust internally for the users preference). The same locking system allows the DAA Racer holster to hold the gun by only its trigger guard, just as steady and secure as the Race Master does, and the same spring loaded safety is conveniently positioned in the rear of the holster, where it can be easily and swiftly accessed on the draw.

Where other manufactures go to plastic to reduce costs on their hanger - we did not. We believe that one of the most important features in a competition holster is the ability to position it just right for you, and then to lock it up rock solid on your shooting belt.

We redesigned the hanger to reduce costs, however it remains an all aluminum structure and utilizes the same ball-joint design the Race Master users. In fact, the new hanger with the round vertical rod, offers a wider range of adjustment that the Race Master’s system.

The holster is shipped with a detachable thigh pad, which pivots within a range of about 40 deg, to mould itself to your thigh as you move, reducing movement of the holster and increasing comfort.

The belt hanger is again a variant of the successful Race Master design, just made narrower and lighter. Our now familiar minimalist steel locking plates on the inside, allow you to maintain good contact between your inner and outer shooting belt.

The entire holster comes in at just 230gr, making it the lightest race holster on the market!

Unlike the Race Master holster, no interchangeable block is available for the Racer holster.
