As I’ve reported before, Gene DeSantis built the first DeSantis GunHide holster by hand at his kitchen table over 40 years ago. Since then, the company has become a global enterprise, utilizing the latest technologies. DeSantis holsters are used by elite law enforcement agencies and the U.S. military. And skilled craftsmen still construct DeSantis holsters by hand in the United States.
One of the company’s newer offerings is the Yukon Hunting Rig for scopeless handguns. This shoulder holster is made of heavy-duty ballistic nylon and has a fully adjustable harness that can be adjusted for multiple angles. The rig positions the handgun across the hunter’s chest, distributing the weight evenly and placing the gun conveniently within easy grasp.
The Yukon Hunting Rig is offered in black and is available in two sizes: large semiauto and large revolver. I have both versions, and the large semiauto model comes with an adjustable magazine pouch, while the large revolver model (pictured here with a brand-new Taurus Raging Hunter double-action revolver with a 6.75-inch-long barrel) comes with a speedloader pouch and cartridge loops. Both holsters also feature quick-release buckle straps to keep your hunting handgun good and secure while you trek across tricky terrain.
The Yukon Hunting Rig is available for left-handed or right-handed shooters, and it will fit handguns made by the following companies: Beretta, Browning, Colt, Glock, HK, Kimber, Para, Ruger, SIG SAUER, Smith & Wesson, Springfield Armory, and Walther.
