Browsing through Instagram stories this morning I was assaulted by what might be the dumbest gun product released this year, the Phantom QuickDraw magnet holster thing. It isn't too often that something makes me shudder like Clint in Grand Torino.
There are a lot of publications that refuse to call out dumb stuff, that isn't how we play here. Firearm Rack was founded on the principle that consumers deserve the best information. After all, everyone that contributes to this site is a consumer that has had their hard earned cash swindled by someone selling snake oil.
While the Phantom QuickDraw isn't as dangerous when used with an empty chamber, but then you have stepped into another level of derp, Israeli carry. Use it with a round in the chamber and you are now carrying a pistol with an exposed trigger, an even higher level of dumb.
Do you want to know what really caught my attention about the Phantom QuickDraw? The video below. It was a sponsored post on Instagram and showed up in my feed. If you watch closely, you see the person demoing the Phantom QuickDraw eject a live round.
But. But. But ..... Why?
Here are the still frames taken from the video above, notice what appears to be a single round of what appears to be Walmart special garbage JHP in his hand.
If you are a gun shop owner that is really into the idea of selling people a pure trash product, rest assured that they sell the Phantom QuickDraw in bulk. For the low price of $2,887.50, you can buy 150 pieces of pure, undiluted disappointment.
If you must know more about the Phantom QuickDraw, check out their website. The "holster" (if you can call it that) retails for $35, but you just flat out shouldn't order one. I would much rather you spend that $35 on hair gel, several bags of unsalted peanuts, or even something as bad as the Alien Gear Cloak Tuck holster.
