VanGuard 2 Basic Kit for Glock 42/43

5 Stars

Product Description

The VanGuard 2 is a minimalist IWB holster.  Unlike traditional IWB holsters, the VG2 covers only the trigger guard of your weapon.  This unique design eliminates the bulk of a traditional holster, while providing a level of safety and security not attainable by simply sticking a pistol in the waistband of your pants.

The VanGuard 2 can be used multiple ways: 

First, it can be used (without the lanyard or the overhook) as a trigger guard cover for storage and transportation safety.  This prevents foreign objects from finding their way inside the trigger guard and potentially pressing the trigger, while still allowing the slide to be cycled and the magazine released.  This gives users the ability to clear the weapon without the danger of a negligent discharge.

Next, it can be used with the static-line tether for on-body (IWB) or off-body carry (such as inside a bag, purse, briefcase, vehicle console, etc).  This allows the weapon to be safely carried with a chambered round without fear of a negligent discharge, while still being rapidly deployable.  The holster can also be removed by catching the nose of the holster and prying it off.  This allows one-hand deployment of the weapon even if the tether or attachment point fails to remove the holster.

Finally, the user can attach the overhook to create a stable, secure, IWB holster.  The complete system is fully adjustable for ride-height and cant, is tuckable for maximum concealment, and fully ambidextrous. 


 Please be aware, we do not advise attempting to re-holster the weapon while the VG2 is inside your clothing.  You should remove the VG2 and install it on the weapon outside of your waistband.

  1. Awesome! Ditch draw clip and get one of these!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2017

    I wanted a V2 but the Glock 43 version wasn't out yet. Tried other knock offs but this is the real deal. Minimalist with one in the chamber. I can finally stop adding to the drawer of holsters. Will consider one for my G19.

  2. Raven concealment all the way 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2017

    As always Raven concealment never lets me down. Products are always top notch and works as they should. Won't find a better company out there. You guys rock!

  3. Very good for what it does! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2017

    Very fast and easy to clip on, retention is good as well, a little adjustability helps also. I find myself wearing this more than something a bit more "full" for an AIWB holster on my G43, good job!

  4. Good product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2017

    Very good product. Very innovative. Super customer service. Had a delivery issue that was due to me, not Raven and they took care of the issue at no cost to me. Rare these days.

  5. The best concealment holster I own 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2017

    I have bought them all. From kydex to hybrid to clipdraw and more... This is by far the easiest to conceal and most comfortable. I also feel comfortable carrying condition one with this holster.

  6. Glock 43 Vanguard holstef 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    Great holster. Positively retains the firearm very well and allows for virtually no printing. Only improvement I could see is having the belt loop as an option instead of the clip or having to purchase it seperately.

  7. Lovin' the Vanguard 2!!! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jun 2017

    Extremely well designed and does everything that you need it to do. I use it in the offhand, back-up role for a Glock 42 and it works splendidly! The price was right, was shipped in a timely matter ( quicker than promised) and the website was stupid easy to use. I purchased one of the first raven products from back in the day and didn't like it so I was reluctant to place my order. I'm glad I did because I believe the Vanguard 2 is like no other product on the market. Way to go Raven!!!

  8. great little holstee 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    This little holster works great. It helps keep my pistol exactly where I put it, it's easy to access so I can get the pistol out quickly if needed. Being a law enforcement officer for over 21 years and a firearms instructor, I'm demanding about my equipment, and this holster does exactly what I was hoping it would do.

  9. VG2 for Glock43 AWESOME 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2017

    I am relatively new to carrying and recently had bought a Glock43 for daily carry. I initially tried two other concealing type holsters that covered more of the gun and because of that had more bulk. They weren't comfy and did a terrible job of concealing the weapon under my tshirt. I read about the VG2 online and decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did. It is easy to use, feels secure and locked into place but is also easy to access and remove the firearm quickly. Im a stocky guy, not fat but definitely not skinny and I dont have any printing issues when wearing my normal jeans and a tshirt.

  10. Well Played 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2017

    I have been waiting for a VanGuard Holster for my wife's G42 since I got one for my G19. Much smaller than others on the market. easier for her to conceal and if I need something more concealing for dress wear or light wear, this is a perfect option. Well played VanGuard! Thank you.
