Awesome Holster

The holster is a piece of art work that actually works. Even my wife thinks this is a pretty holster. I have no issues with this purchase and I received the holster very quickly. I will buy other holsters in the future starting with a holster for my Colt Anaconda.

Great Holster!!

Holster quality is top notch. The holster was better than I expected! With a belt, it snugs up to my side and hides my weapon. Just remember to use the instructions to "fit" your revolver in it. It retains like a champ!!

A little loose

Used the fitting instructions that came with the holster. My revolver seems to fit a little loose for me now. Thinking I could have skipped the fitting and went straight to using it. It tightened up a little when I put it on but still I like the gun to be very snug and I’m not totally comfortable with the fit. It is however very high quality leather for the price and overall a great holster gor the money. You might see if your gun fits before using the instructions.

Buying J-Frame Revolver Holsters

As Smith & Wesson’s smallest and most concealable revolver, the J-Frame is the classic “snub-nose.” When buying revolver holsters for a J-frame, you’ll want to look for:

  • Concealability – Some people carry their J-frames IWB for concealability, but the RVH1 is designed for minimal imprinting. Since it rides high, wearers are able to carry wearing a polo shirt and cargo shorts – no need for a baggy, oversized shirt or jacket! The quick draw design is perfect for personal protection and everyday carry.
  • Retention – The last thing you want is for your weapon to come popping out unexpectedly. Leather revolver holsters hold your weapon in place through the firmness of high-quality steerhide leather, reinforced with double stitching, and the custom-sizing to J-frame revolvers. Most people do not need the extra thumb breaks, trigger hoods, or other retention straps found in other holsters.
  • Comfort – Nothing beats leather revolver holsters when it comes to comfort! They warm up with your body heat and conform to your hip for all-day carrying. Compared to Kydex, leather revolver holsters are very lightweight. Furthermore, OWB carrying on a belt distributes the weight of your revolver evenly, so you don’t develop a sore hip over time.
  • Durability – Proud gun owners who purchased leather holsters back in the 1970s find that they still perform today, even after heavy use. Our leather holsters are designed to have that same classic longevity. Unless you’re frequently carrying in a jungle swamp, a leather holster should have the sort of durability you need. Every 1791 Gunleather holster comes with a Lifetime Warranty on craftsmanship.

  • “Fits my gun like a glove!”
  • “The leather is super thick and quality.”
  • “Perfect fit, beautiful craftsmanship, gorgeous color, and is comfortable wearing all day long.”
