  • Which firearm did you use with our holster? HK VP9

Good quality holster and customer service

This is a great looking and quality holster. It was a little tight when I got it, but the break in procedures (zip lock bag) worked fine. The leather was more stiff than I expected. I think this is my third holster from 1791.

  • Which firearm did you use with our holster? Springfield Armory Range Officer Elite 10mm

Leather greats

Awesome experience with 1791, my third holster from them. Unfortunately I had to return as the holster was to loose of a fit for my carry comfort.

  • Which firearm did you use with our holster? G20

Wee bit snug

Good. Took a bit of work to get the firearm to sit down enough to cover the trigger completely. Used leather conditioner and the plastic bag routine. After four days of wearing the holster just around the house. It finally was low enough to cover the trigger completely.

1791 Quality

I wanted a leather thumb Strap OWB holster for a Glock 21. 1791 doesn't make one ): I bought one from another maker and it seems to sag on the belt and the thumb strap was so loose I could put a pinky finger in between the weapon and the strap). I decided to try this holster (BH2.3). It retains the weapon well (still would rather have a thumb strap) and rides much better on my 1 1/2" Hanks belt. I practiced at the range a few days ago drawing, firing two to the body, one to the head, then re-holster. Overall very pleased. G21 fully loaded with 13 plus one in chamber 230gr +P is a lot of weight and this holster (at least while new) is holding up well. I carried my Sig full size 45 in a 1791 OWB with a thumb strap for nearly 2 years with no problems (it weighs just a few grams lighter fully loaded with 10 plus one in chamber 230gr).
