Name of product: Fobus GLT gun holsters

Units: About 3,200

Manufacturer: First Samco Inc., through its Fobus USA Holster Division, of Southampton, Pa.

Hazard: A plastic or leather strap on the gun holster can catch the trigger of the gun when inserted into the holster causing the gun to unintentionally discharge, posing an injury hazard to the user.

Incidents/Injuries: There have been eight reports of the Glock handgun unintentionally discharging when being inserted into the gun holster, and one report of a user injuring his finger when a Glock handgun unintentionally discharged while being inserted into the gun holster.

Description: The gun holsters are designed to hold a Series 17 and Series 19 Glock handgun fitted with a laser-sight light. "GL 2*EMZ" is engraved in the top of the gun holster and "FOBUS" and "MADE IN ISRAEL" is printed on the back of the gun holster. This recall involves two early versions of the Fobus GLT gun holsters, one with a plastic retention strap less than one inch wide and one with a leather retention strap less than one inch wide. The new design includes a strap that is more than one inch wide with a plastic tip too wide to be caught inside the trigger guard.

Sold at: Gun accessory retailers and distributors nationwide, as well as on-line at http://www.fobusholster.com between March 2002 and March 2003 for about $40 to $45.

Manufactured in: Israel

Remedy: Consumers should stop using the gun holsters immediately and bring the recalled gun holsters to an authorized Fobus USA distributor for a free replacement gun holster or contact First Samco Inc. for instructions on how to return the product for a replacement item.

Consumers also may send their recalled gun holsters to Fobus USA, 1300 B-3 Industrial Highway, Southampton, PA 18966. First Samco, Inc. will reimburse consumers for return shipping.
