Gary Quesenberry is the CEO of Q-Series, LLC (qseriesllc.com,), a veteran owned company that makes a unique, minimalist holster. The company’s Stealth holster is a minimalist, ambidextrous, tuckable, extreme low profile, IWB (Inside The Waistband) concealment holster that can be worn with or without a belt while allowing easy reholstering. In addition to being one of the first companies to offer a holster for the Glock 43 when it came out, Stealth holsters are also available for the Glock 42 and standard size, as well as S&W M&P full-size and Shield models.
“After years of carrying concealed and never finding that perfect concealment holster, I finally decided that if you want something done right, you just have to do it yourself! As a competitive shooter and firearms instructor for the Department of Homeland Security, carrying concealed is not only a part of my job, it’s a way of life.”
Quesenberry’s design process was based on comfort, low price, and function. The first prototype was built in December 2013 and demonstrated to several friends on the range. Several of them were associated with a few retailers in the area and their interest was sparked. A week later they put in a combined order for 200 of the holsters. “At the time I was making holsters in an old modified toaster oven I picked up at Walmart,” Quesenberry says. “I got rid of the old toaster and stepped up my game considerably.” The popularity of the holster grew and he officially formed Q-Series, LLC in March 2014. Galls.com, a police and public safety uniform and equipment supplier, started carrying Q-Series holsters and it become one of the top selling products in their catalog. A number of other retailers across the country have started carrying them as well. Military and Law Enforcement purchasing directly from Q-Series receive a 10% discount. The company’s website also has a series of product and shooting demonstrations.
