    Default French gendarmerie or police hosters?

    A friend of mine ran across this holster and wondered if it is a French gendarmerie or police holster, perhaps for a MAB D or similar sized pistol. Since I know some of the members of this forum have personal experience with the French gendarmerie and/or police, I was wondering if any of you recognize the design or have any information about it.

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Police, Gendarmerie or Customs holster for a motorcycle agent, equipped with a 7,65 auto, both later being the more probable.

    Thanks, Frog -- I will pass that along (and add it to my database of information). I never thought of la Douane being on motorcycles.

    The Customs have a power of intervention over the whole french territory, not only at the frontiers, something you may discover if you ever come here and get controlled by a Customs brigade at some highway. You also can find them on planes, choppers and maritime patrol crafts.

    Et oui, the roving Douanier. Great fun those guys. Have had the pleasure a couple of times.
