DeSantis Gatt Holsters
At the request of a major supplier, DeSantis created two levels of Gatt holsters; the E, or Economy, Gatt, and the L, or Leather, Gatt. The E-Gatt uses budget-grade leather and stitching and is only available in black. The L-Gatt is a step up and made with higher-quality materials and workmanship, plus it can be had in either black or tan. Both rigs are concealable, open-top, hand-boned belt-slides, providing an exact friction fit on the handgun for security (desantishoster.com).

Carrying a concealed weapon remains illegal in Illinois, but a federal court ruled the state needs to legalize it. So the Democratic-controlled Legislature is debating where carrying a gun should be allowed.

Republicans, though, continue to criticize Democrats’ process of carrying out dozens of test votes instead of negotiating a comprehensive concealed carry plan.
