I’ve talked about this holster in my USPSA Revolver Rig a while ago and this is by far the best race holster I’ve used. Retention is pretty amazing considering it only grabs on to the trigger guard and part of the frame.
I’ve used a CR Speed holster before and had an occasion where I bumped the gun from the back and it went flying onto the ground. Luckily the gun wasn’t loaded.
I’m not sponsored by DAA or CED (I wish!) and if you are interested you can buy it from http://ceddaa.com or from http://www.shootersconnection.com
At the time of this video, the holster is around $200 and each insert is $65. They have inserts for most of the popular guns used in competition today.
Was really fun! we braved some snow, hail, rain and light fog all within the time taken to shoot 6 stages! Paul Bunyan has one of the better facilities in the NW for shooting practical pistol. Great range layout, lots of parking too! Just wished it wasn’t an hour away from my home.
Here’s the video I recorded :

Here’s my USPSA Revolver Rig that I’ve put together over the course of the past few months.
Here’s the gear :
- The Gun is a S&W 625 JM with modified Hogue grips,
- Double Alpha Academy Race Master holster (http://doublealpha.biz)
- James Austin Moonclip Server (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- California Competition Works “Shoot the Moon” holder (http://californiacompetitionworks.com)
Can’t wait to go shoot it at the next USPSA match!
Just ordered this in from Shooters Connection, a fantastic store run by competitive shooters. They are very patient and understand how eager we want our products when we’ve clicked on the PLACE ORDER button. Chuck & Mike from Shooters Connection did all they can to accommodate my special payment requirements and shipped the holster to me SUPER FAST.
It’s made by Double Alpha Academy and designed by Saul Kirsch. The Race Master Competition Holster is modular and you can buy additional “blocks” that allow you to use the same holster with other popular guns like STI, Glock, CZ, etc.

Took a while to customize it to fit my hand and draw position though, but once it’s in place, you can screw it all down and it’ll stay put.
