The following is a press release from Front Line

It’s a debate handgun owners have been engaged in for decades: What’s the better OWB holster on the market – belt or paddle? For most, it’s a matter of preference. The paddle holster offers more convenience and maneuverability, while the belt provides a more secure, locked-in fit.

Front Line, the manufacturer of a premier range of products and combat-proven holsters for over 50 years, aims to end the argument once and for all with an OWB holster kit that offers the security of a belt holster and the convenience of a paddle.

The Front Line BFL Modular System is an improved version of the standard belt holster, with an innovative, proprietary design that allows it to be worn two ways: either as a regular slide-on belt-loop holster or as a paddle holster with a security strap that easily closes around the belt. There’s no need to remove the belt with the BFL Modular, but that’s just one of the kit’s many conveniences.

The BFL Modular system is molded to sit tight on every belt, and fits three different belt sizes: 1.2″ (30 mm), 1.5″ (38 mm) and 2″ (50 mm) and is easy to modify when changing belts: Simply unsnap the security strap, remove the insert, and then add the proper size insert and position it on the two holes of the BFL Modular.

The conveniences of the BFL Modular do not come at the cost of security. It features eight attachment points to secure the holster in place and provide solid stability when drawing the pistol. It is safe, comfortable against the body, and offers an optimal drawing angle. Two tension screws allow the user to set the retention level of the gun in the holster. There is simply no other wearing option on the market that offers this kind of innovative convenience, flexibility, support or security.
