HOLSTERS AND ACCESSORIES
Quite a few companies have holsters to fit the Honor Guard—from Alien Gear to Crossbreed and even custom maker Milt Sparks. In fact, this compact 9mm pistol will fit in most holsters designed for the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield.
Because of the time of year (it was starting to get pretty hot), I decided to go with a Galco Stow-n-go for the Honor Guard. This IWB leather holster is small, light and easily interchangeable between jeans and shorts—two mainstays of summer. Even better, its simple, low-profile design makes it easily covered by pretty much anything, including light T-shirts.
Obtaining a firm grip and drawing the Honor Guard from the Stow-n-go was simple, even when trying to implement stress into drills. Reholstering wasn’t much harder, because the neutral-cant holster comes with a metal-reinforced mouth. However, the soft steer hide below the mouth does collapse under a belt, requiring a little push at the back of the slide to fully seat the gun into the holster.
The only accessory I could find for the Honor Guard was a Crimson Trace Laserguard, which is available standard from Honor Defense and aftermarket. There really isn’t much else available other than spare magazines.
Of course, the Honor Guard doesn’t really need much, because it comes with easy-to-use controls and excellent sights. It could possibly use a trigger job, but overall, the Honor Guard is an excellent concealed-carry handgun.
