Tactical Solutions has expanded its Pac-Lite holster line, known for lightweight, minimalistic polymer rigs, with a new holster for the Ruger Mark series of .22LR pistols.

According to guns.com, the new Pac-Lite is made to fit the Ruger Mark I, Mark II, Mark II, and Mark IV pistols as well as 22/45 models.

The post says the holster can be used with optics, iron sights, or both. It's also ambidextrous, meaning it can be worn and drawn from the right or left side.

The new Pac-Lite has an adjustable retention system that also allows for the holster to be worn in high- or low-ride positions.

"There's no other holster on the market that has the features of our Pac-Lite holster," Sales Manager Amy Shaw said in a press release, "They have been a top selling accessory for us for the past several years and we're looking forward to selling even more of them now that they fit the MKIV in addition to all the other models."

The holster is injection molded and the open-top design means it will accommodate most optics that would be installed on a Ruger Mark pistol, which is done via a custom rail from Ruger, included with some models and also sold seperately.

The MSRP for the Ruger Mark Pac-Lite is $40 and they’re already shipping.

There are more than 100 holster options for the Honor Guard concealed-carry pistol on the market.

On the concealed carry side, Safariland and Bianchi have released 14 holster options made for the Honor Defense Honor Guard pistol.

This press release says the new models include retention style rigs as well as standard carry holsters.

“We are pleased regarding fitment from Bianchi and Blackhawk as we support law enforcement whenever possible,” Ramey said in a press release. “They join a list of other top quality manufacturers that offer our customers a wide variety of holster choices.”

We've been reporting on the 9mm, single-stack Honor Guard pistols since they came to the market in 2015. The pistol is currently available in four configurations, a compact model with a 3.2-inch barrel, a compact long slide model with a 3.8-inch barrel and a two-slot accessory rail and a thumb safety, another 3.8-inch barrel model with no thumb safety, and the FIST model, with a 3.2-inch barrela nd an integrated standoff built into the frame.

There are now more than 100 holster options out there for the Honor Guard, which was designed from the ground up for concealed carry with a striker-fired action, snag-free sights, an ambidextrous slide stop and mag release, a modular chassis, wide trigger with a 7 lb. pull, and interchangeable backstraps.
