Safety Compliance

Before continuing, READ THE ATTACHED AGREEMENTS. Do not operate or retain these products unless you have read and agreed to the following terms:


  • Firearms can be extremely hazardous, inherently dangerous, and can cause death or serious physical injury. 

  • Firearms should be handled and used ONLY by persons who have been properly trained and qualified, in their use and safekeeping.


If you have purchased a new handgun, be sure to first read the safety instructions that accompany it before using the handgun in conjunction with any Index Point Holster product. All Index Point Holster products are carefully designed and manufactured from the best available materials to perform their intended function properly with the firearms for which they are designed. Use of Index Point Holster products with firearms for which they are not designed, or with firearms that have been modified customized, or otherwise changed from the original manufacturer's specifications, greatly increases the likelihood of an accidental and potentially dangerous discharge. This may result in death or serious physical injury to the user or a bystander.


Examples of modified or customized firearms include but are not limited to the installation of trigger shoes, wide target triggers, and hammers, custom grips, grip wraps, grip adapters, the addition of tape or rubber bands to the grip, extended safeties, laser sights, sight ribs, compensators, and internal "action jobs" which tend to compromise the margin of safety intended by the manufacturer. Also, the use of an improperly maintained, abused, or defective firearm increases the likelihood of an accidental discharge at any time during its intended use, from drawing and holstering to firing, loading, unloading, carrying, and storage. DO NOT use any Index Point Holster product with any firearms that have been abused, are defective, or have been improperly maintained.


If your Index Point Holster product becomes defective, or if you have any questions regarding its use, maintenance, or adjustment, immediately cease using the product and contact Index Point Holster at


After purchasing your Index Point Holster, test it with an UNLOADED handgun to ensure proper fit, and to become familiar with the holster's features. Double-check to ensure that the magazine has been removed and the firing chamber(s) are empty.


Be certain that the handgun is firmly seated in the holster before use. If originally incorporated in the holster design, any straps or snaps contained therein must be utilized for maximum safety and security. Snaps and other fasteners are not manufactured by Index Point Holster. Periodic inspection is mandatory to ensure the proper form, fit, and function of these products.


Tension screws should be checked periodically to insure proper tension. DO NOT ALTER IN ANY WAY, ANY SAFETY DEVICE INCORPORATED IN ANY INDEX POINT HOLSTER PRODUCT TO ACCOMMODATE HANDGUNS OR OTHER EQUIPMENT FOR WHICH THE INDEX POINT HOLSTER PRODUCT WAS NOT DESIGNED OR INTENDED. Following are additional safety warnings incident to the use of Index Point Holsters:


Always keep your finger OFF the trigger when drawing and holstering.

NEVER HOLSTER A COCKED HANDGUN. We do not recommend that pistols be carried "cocked and locked" (round in the chamber, hammer cocked, safety on) also known as Condition 1 Carry, with any Index Point Holster product.


When drawing and holstering a handgun, always control the muzzle. Be sure that the muzzle does not point at any portion of your body, especially your non-shooting hand. Practicing "fast draw" or "quick draw" techniques without the guidance of a certified firearms instructor can result in an accidental discharge, which may result in death or serious physical injury.


Place your hand over your handgun during any strenuous physical activity such as running.

No holster can provide complete security to a weapon from unauthorized removal by an assailant or adversary or from falling out of the holster during various activities. It is the user's responsibility to use caution and practice weapon retention practices and techniques. Moreover, it is essential for the user to be familiar with the tactical and procedural guidelines regarding the use and carrying of firearms near potentially dangerous individuals that may be in effect with his/her department or agency. For example, some departments or agencies may prohibit wearing a firearm while fingerprinting an arrestee.


To prevent accidental loss of the handgun, holsters must snugly fit the handgun. However, this may cause the slide to go out of battery when holstering, which could result in the handgun not firing when needed. Therefore, it is advisable to always place your thumb on the back of the slide while holstering to ensure that the slide does not go out of battery.





Because we cannot control the use of products, all Index Point Holster products are sold "as is" and "with all faults". All warranties of merchantability or fitness for intended use either expressed or implied, and any liability for incidental or consequential damages resulting from the use of any Index Point Holster product are disclaimed and excluded from the retail sales transaction. At the time of the original retail sale and delivery, the purchaser and NOT the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer assumes the entire risk and responsibility for determining the suitability and fitness of the product for the particular use intended.
