Tuesday, March 10, 2020 – Browning, Mystery Ranch, and Blackhawk gun holsters have been recalled in recent months due to safety issues, including the potential for straps to become loose, or for the safety mechanism to accidentally be switched off.
Browning Multi-Age Thumb Break Leather Holsters
In the most recent recall, about 1,265 Browning Multi-Angle Thumb Break leather pistol holsters have been found to pose a risk for changing the position of the safety switch without the user’s knowledge.
