Rapid Response Holster
The Rapid Response Holster for Colt 1911 is designed for maximum drawing speed without sacrifice. In fact, this holster has all of the safety features of our other carry holsters including the snug custom contoured fit for positive retention and a full length thumb safety guard. The additional drawing speed is accomplished by dropping the gun just a little lower on the hip and positioning it slightly further away from the body. This allows you to very quickly acquire a full firing grip with less interference from clothing and your body. Once you have your grip, the wide sight track eliminates friction of the sight coming out of the holster. The low-cut front lets you clear leather just above the belt line. If speed is your primary concern, you need a Rapid Response®. Meets I.D.P.A. criteria.
This is the holster that I have chosen as my personal concealed carry holster. It is featured extensively in both the original 1911 Holstersvideo and the Advanced 1911 Holstersvideo. I have used it a lot! That means that I have drawn my Glock 22 from this holster more than 20,000 times. I’ve worn it all day out in the hot sun and perspired all over it. I still use the same holster today. And it still functions perfectly. It’s comfortable, durable, and constructed of premium horsehide with the rough side out. This holster is a true day-in, day-out working concealment holster. It is worn inside the waistband and attaches to your belt with two snaps. This is very convenient because you don’t have to take your belt off to put the holster on or take it off. Every once in a while you find an exceptional product, this is one of them... in both quality of manufacturer and functionality. I’ll use this holster another 20 years.
