We’re big fans of BlackHawk here at GearExpert by OpticsPlanet. It was just a few weeks ago that I wrote about my camping/hiking experience with the BlackHawk Sling Backpack, and I was mighty impressed. Well, BlackHawk has started a rebate promotion that makes buying a wide variety of their products a little more tempting.
As if it wasn’t tempting enough already!
First things first, take a look at the rebate form. This particular rebate is for purchases made between July 15 and October 31, 2012. But what products? Well, you can see a full lineup on the rebate form, but I thought I’d take a closer look at a few of the BlackHawk items you can save a bit more on right now.
BlackHawk Serpa Holsters
BlackHawk Serpa Holsters are very popular. When we visited BlackHawk’s booth at SHOT Show last January they ran through a lot of the features on their newest offerings, and there was a whole lot to take in! One of the main features that makes people gravitate toward SERPA is the consistency of the draw with these holsters. Like many of you, I like leather holsters, but you have to put a lot of time and effort into working the leather to make it feel the way you want. SERPA holsters always draw the same. These carbon fiber holsters are interchangeable, so if you get a new one and attach it to your belt or choose a model with a Y-harness you’ll have a familiar draw regardless. That’s a big deal, as you won’t have to relearn your draw every time you try out a new holster!
BlackHawk SERPA holsters also have a lot of retention features to make sure you and only you are able to draw the gun when it’s on your hip. There are different levels, but regardless of the level with a little practice it will become easy and natural for you to draw your sidearm.
If you buy one of these SERPA Holsters right now you can use the rebate form to get $10 back!
BlackHawk Nylon Hip Holsters
If you don’t want a hard molded holster like the SERPA, you can also save some money on BlackHawk Nylon Hip Holsters. The Sportster series isn’t part of this, but there are still quite a few nylon holsters to choose from. The nice thing about these holsters is you can use them for more than one gun, and they adjust so quickly and easily that it’s hardly no work at all! I included the video at the top of the page so you can see how simple the process of adjusting these holsters really is! The thumb snap can be aimed in either direction to accommodate the way you like to draw. I prefer to have my thumb go straight into my grip, but everyone is different. You get a bit more versatility with a BlackHawk Nylon Holster than with a SERPA, as those are very specific in their fit.
These holsters are already fairly cost effecient, but you can get $3 back with the rebate on BlackHawk Nylon Holsters right now. Remember that does not include the Sportster Series.
$5 back on BlackHawk Slings
Since I wrote my post a few weeks back on the BlackHawk Sling Backpack I can honestly say BlackHawk knows a thing or two about helping you haul your gear. While that bag is not included in this rebate, all BlackHawk Slings are! A number of options are available for the rebate, but the one I’ll focus on is the BlackHawk Tactical Releasable STRIKE Sling. It’s a simple to use and fairly adaptable sling. The metal snap hooks work with most weapon systems, and can attach to MOLLE webbing or the STRIKE system by BlackHawk. You can detach your rifle quickly with the STRIKE Sling, so it’s a great way to improve your performance without adding a complex piece of equipment to your arsenal.
BlackHawk Apparel – Men’s and Women’s Tactical Clothes
The last category of products I want to talk about are BlackHawk Men’s and Women’s Apparel. This was another big part of BlackHawk’s display at SHOT Show, and they impressed us back in January, especially with their new women’s clothing. Tactical clothing tends to be cut the same way for both men and women, with just smaller sizes for the ladies, but BlackHawk took a whole new look at their clothes and redesigned them with the feminine figure in mind. They still have the same materials and construction as their other tactical clothes, but the fit is better suited to women now.
You’ll get $10 back with the rebate on a number of different BlackHawk clothing options right now! Just look for “after rebate” next to the price!
That’s a lot of chances to get money back from BlackHawk, and it really just scratches the surface. Take a look at the Rebate form for all the BlackHawk Gear you can get money back on right now. Remember it’s only on purchases made between July 15 and October 31, 2012!
