Product Description

The Speed Scabbard is designed to meet the needs of plainclothes professionals preferring a holster without a thumb break while still providing firearm retention. This is accomplished with precise molding and a tension screw device on most models.  Available in black or tan unlined leather.  Belt slots are 1 3/4-Inch wide.  Some models come with two belt slots and without a tension device.

First off a couple of things that aren't a deal breaker for me, but a potential buyer should know. The holster you'll be getting isn't exactly as pictured. Two belt slots not three, and no adjustment screw. Now let me get to the meat of this product. Unless you are willing to pay almost double for a custom holster this one will suit your needs. The Governor is an odd shaped handgun to say the least but this DeSantis fits it well with good retention. Reholstering quickly is going to be an issue due to some strange flaps at the top. It's almost like they wanted to put a snap retainer on and backed out at the last minute. Just do a double check or do some home surgery on it and you should be fine.

For such a hulking revolver this holster allows me to carry my Governor concealed, with the proper clothing and belt. It really does a nice job of keeping it high and tight and the weight is pretty much a non issue. Granted I'm a revolver kind of guy and prefer a piece of metal rather than a polymer framed gun. In all likelihood I will be buying a custom rig for this particular firearm down the road, but for now this holster seems to fit my needs.

This holster offers decent retention for a single-retention holster. It will keep the firearm secure; even when you tip it upside-down. NOT fond of the high-lip features; they tent to rub against the side and chafe the skin. Cutting them down to the edge of the cylinder will solve this problem. All in all, I am impressed with this holster; O.T.W. carriers will enjoy it for their Governor...............

I definitely agree with the other reviews that state this is NOT a "speed" scabbard. It is incredibly tight and takes an extra second to pull the governor out, even AFTER following the directions and putting the governor in a thin sock and putting it into the holster overnight.

Maybe this thing will break in over time, but I am concerned that the more it breaks in it will eventually be too loose.

Another issue with this holster, because it is so tight, and the governor being so heavy, your natural inclination to wear this with a heavy/thick gun belt (ie: one supported with Kydex) won't work. If you wear a thick/strong belt it, the holster won't even let the governor in, that's how tight it is.

Anyway, it's not bad for the money, and has great retention, as long as you are OK with this not being a true speed scabbard.

I had expected the holster to be in the color brown and it arrived in black. Note photo is holster in brown. The holster requires a great deal of preparation prior to being in shape for use. Instructions state to put weapon in sock then put weapon that is in sock in holster and leave for 24 hours and pull certain parts of holster for stretch and etc. So far this does not make any difference in tightness of holster and still difficult to draw weapon from holster. There is certainly a long breakin period if, in fact, the holster will eventually break in and be good for everyday use and for a reasonable draw from holster. Currently drawing from holster is quite difficult. Actually, wish I had ordered another product that would perform more reasonably. I am sure this is at times to be expected when ordering from the internet without actually being able to hold the item. I guess I should have paid more attention to title of product as it is advertised as a Scabbard and not a Holster. You should absolutely delete the word SPEED from any description of this item.

Wow, is all I can say about this holster. It fits my revolver perfectly retaining it very well without restricting drawing it from the holster. The leather has a great feel to it and is rigid enough to allow it to form well to the weapon. For personal preference I bought the black and the finish is great on it.

Yes, you know it is hard to find holsters for this odd handgun, and this one works just fine
Acceptable quality and it holds the gun well and is otherwise fit fine
However, the one that was shipped to me was black not the displayed tan color

The picture shows tan but the description says black...the one I got was black, as expected. I read many reviews that said theirs was much too tight...mine was perfect right from the box and slid in and out nicely with a little resistance. However, when placed on my side, and my belt cinched up tight, the gun was difficult to remove. I will do a little stretching and think it'll be fine. I have a S&W Governor and I think the fit is pretty good for this price range. It's not the highest quality leather, but it's fine for the price. (For those who need to stretch their holster...dampen [not dripping] a few paper towels, place a few inside the holster and wrap the others around holster. Place in microwave 20-30 seconds until towels are warm to the touch...let sit for minute, then wrap gun in freezer paper, slippery side out, and jam gun in holster all the way. It should be fine the next morning). I would buy again.

The holster is breaking in quickly due to the nice molding of the leather to the gun during the making process. I saw a previous review said to cut off the "wierd excess tabs at the top". You could do that and still have a nice holster, OR you could leave them in place and use them for easy one handed reholstering. If you were to carry this concealled, you might want to also invest in a hogue bantam grip to loose some length off of the factory grip. The only further observation would be to use 45 colt or 45 acp, instead of 410 shells in public. You can pin point where 1 slug is headed when it leaves the barrel, but it might be difficult to control all those pellets from a shot gun shell if target discrimination were ever needed.
