Viper Emergency Threat Response Kit
For years we have struggled with the concept of compromise in the specific equipment necessary to respond adequately to a potential threat. Everyone readily accepts the need for an extra magazine for increased ammo and also to overcome equipment failure and the need for a tactical/administrative reload. But this is really only the very minimal, basic equipment adequate for a small percentage of situations.
The need for a proper amount of equipment is in direct conflict with a person's ability to carry the equipment around as they clear their house at night or confront a gang of thugs on their property.
There is also the need to transport and store the equipment as an integrated unit so that it is organized and at the ready.
The perpetrator usually has what he thinks he needs and a plan while the responder usually has what he can get his hands on quickly, a gun.
When you are awakened in the middle of the night by the sounds of trespass in your home or a band of unknown vehicles comes down your drive or your business is suddenly breached by a street gang, you will barely take the time to grab a gun especially if you are in your underwear or pajamas. Even if fully clothed, the best you can do is stuff a flashlight in your pocket and maybe an extra magazine.
No holster works with underwear or PJs and no one is going to take the time to remove a belt and gear it up.
Flash back 5 years
Viper Holsters was asked by instructors at the Special Forces Advanced Urban Combat School to (SFAUC) to do an evaluation was one of the original battle belts and develop a holster appropriate to that platform, and to suggest changes to improve the platform in general
After a few years of evolving these rigs, it became obvious that a fully rigged battle belt was the perfect solution to immediate, threat response deployment at the ideal level of kit and equipment.
With the proper instant buckle such as the AustiAlpen, the rig can be deployed in seconds with everything you need. . The VMTRK is not clothing dependent and can be deployed in PJs or a tuxedo.
- The basics include;

Since this epiphany, we have never looked back and the acceptance and validation we received from customers has been phenomenal.
More recently our RTG TAC 1 on a fully equipped battle belt, was reviewed and chosen by Jonathan Hollerman, former SERE instructor, owner of Grid Down Consulting, author of " Preparedness Theory" and expert in retreat design and planning, for his EDC in SHTF conditions. Once again the fully rigged battle belt platform has been validated as the perfect kit by a professional and expert in this field.
