Broken after 10-15 draws
on April 10, 2014
I was practicing draws with my 4" Kimber 1911 as I always do with every holster (if you want to call this a holster?) when the "almost indestructible" plastic snapped at the 80* angle. The clip and trigger guard do their job, as well as the Delrin, however the long board of plastic seems a little flimsy (and was). I read that a few people used this as an OTWB holster, however when I tried it, my 1911 slung left and right, may work as OTWB with smaller pistols with less weight.
I did 10-15 back to back quick draws with my 1911 and the VersaCarry in the small of my back when I heard a snap (whoopsies!). I'm sure if I contacted VersaCarry, they would've sent me a replacement, but I didn't bother.
I definitely don't want to risk drawing quickly in the heat of a confrontation, only to be surprised by the Delrin "barrel retention rod" stuck in my barrel.
I'm sure I'm not the only one with this issue! I almost didn't care to write a review, since it only cost me $20, but writing this might save a life or two.
