Colt is back.
I can’t tell you how much it pleases me to write that! Continue reading “Review: The Colt Night Cobra”
In a previous installments of the “Fighting Leather” series, we looked at some landmark police duty holster designs, such as the Jordan Border Patrol style, the clamshell, and the various front break designs from makers like Berns-Martin, Hoyt, Bianchi, Safety Speed, Rogers and Safariland.
