Versacarry Recruit Holster


New member
I’ve been wanting a leather holster for sometime now for my two Kimber 1911s. I saw the water buffalo hide holsters from Versacarry through a FB ad and finally bought one.

I gotta say I’m pretty impressed with the holster. I think it’s very attractive and it holds the weapon well. Time will tell how the retention holds up over time.

Nice looking holster. I'm partial to the single clip on style IWB holster. When I want to grab one and go I don't want to take the time to thread it on my belt. Just clip it and go. But that is a handsome holster.

Is it retention by friction?

I believe it is. In the third photo you can see the screw that can be adjusted to retain the trigger guard. I think there is a rubber washer in there that holds the leather apart. The more you tighten down on the screw, the tighter it holds the trigger guard.

This is the style I prefer. The leather is actually molded so that it indents with the trigger guard. I've never had a concern of my weapon leaving the holster unless I intend for it to.
