    I recently obtained my "F" model last week, shot it, loved it. I am going to qualify this Thursday with it. My problem is that I havent found a Duty holster to carry it in. At my dept, we only use Safariland Duty gear. I carry a 6280 SLS holster for my FN right now.

    I have been back and forth with Safariland this past week. One Customer service rep. didnt even know what a Caracal was. My information was sent to one of their R&D guys and I received a phone call from him today.

    I explained that there was a need for Safariland to produce a Duty holster for this gun. I predict that once Caracal gets a foot hold here in the US, that it will be a popular pistol to carry on duty, not only for LEO's, but for the general public.

    The R&D guy advised he will bring up the idea at the weekly meeting. He even said that if production of a new holster for this gun isnt fesiable right now, they would look at modifying an existing holster to make it work.

    If someone from Caracal-USA is on this forum, please send a blue gun or a sample to Safariland so they can at least have something to go with. I cant wait to be able to carry this On Duty :)

    Thanks

    Re: LEO Duty holster for the Caracal F ??

    I did find that my Caracal holsters fit my FNS-9 like a glove......so maybe the reverse is true. I would try a duty holster made for a FNS or a FNX.
    Hope that helps.

    Re: LEO Duty holster for the Caracal F ??

    I already tested my duty holster for the FNS. Doesnt fit. The Caracal (slide) is just a tad bit wider than the FN.

    Still waiting on a response from Safariland. We will see. The size is so simular to the Glock, Im wondering if my gun will fit a Glock 21 (45) holster. My buddy at work carries one, I will have to see next time I see um.

    I have a leather holster for a Glock 17/22 and it fits great, But one of my old duty holsters, The Caracal is just to wide (just a hair). Ill keep everyone posted.

    Re: LEO Duty holster for the Caracal F ??

    Just an update for any other LEO's out there. I still havent received any follow up calls from Safariland in reference to a specific duty holster for the Caracal.

    I went to G.T. Distributors(Dallas store) today to test fit my Caracal. As I originally figured,The design is very simular to a Glock, but it wouldnt fit into a Glock 17/22 holster. I found a Glock 20/21 holster which fit perfect, (6280 model). They didnt have a left handed basketweave and I was told it would be a couple of weeks to get one from Safariland,,,,,bummer.

    I got home and hit the internet and found one holster on line,,, so in 3-5 business day, I get to start carrying my Caracal on duty. :)

    I will post some pics when everything gets done.

    The mailman arrived with my present. Fits perfect, ( just a couple of adjustments with the allen key to get it a little more snug). I go back to work next Monday, happy to carry my Caracal in uniform.
