So close, yet so fair

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on May 30, 2013
All this holster needs to shoot from a 2 star to a 5 star would be a holster side tie down. Like all Galco products this one is extremely well made there are some plastic parts, but they look fine and seem sturdy enough. I find the retention strap holds my 1911 very securely yet is extremely easy to pop off with the index finger. The double mag pouch also works well. The rig is comfortable to ware and provides excellent access to ones weapon even when seated. With a jacket on over the top concealment is excellent. So far so good. The problem arises when one wants to draw the weapon. I have found it imposable to draw my 1911 from this rig using only one hand. As it is the holster can be held in the left hand while the weapon is drawn or the holster can be pinned between the left arm and the holster. Otherwise the weapon binds up on the way out. These two options work quite well if one has no aversion to covering oneself. The unfortunate thing is that this critical flaw could have been solved by simply adding a tie down to the holster. Also I have noticed that unless care is taken my safety tends to come off when the weapon is returned to the holster.
Pros: Conferrable, good complement, well made, good retention
Cons: One handed draw all but impossible, drawing without covering yourself all but impossible...
Would recommend: No

VHS 118

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on February 28, 2013
I was surprised to see that there is nothing to attach the holster to your belt. A 1911 Rail Gun is a tight fit and it fits high up under the left arm pit. You must firmly hold the holster with your left hand and pull the pistol up and out at the same time to get the pistol out. An attachment from the holster to the belt would have made it possible to extract the pistil with one hand.
Pros: Good quality leather and overall design.
Cons: No attachment from holster to belt....
Would recommend: Yes

An OK Holster

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on February 19, 2013
This is a good quality holster but it has two flaws. The first is there is no way to secure the holster to a belt. If there was a strap or loop to allow you to secure it to your belt it would greatly enhance its usability. The second is the ambidextrous safety catch can unsnap and fall off WAY too easy. I think both these flaws could be fixed by making a designated right and left hand holster and stitching these items to the holster.
Pros: Well made, easy to set up, comfortable to wear
Cons: Safety snap can easily come off, No belt tie-down ...
Would recommend: Yes

Galco VHS118

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, IL Written on June 11, 2012
Purchased this Galco VHS for a Colt 1911 for law enforcement duty. As with all Galco leather, the quality is fantastic, although you pay a premium for that quality. I own a Galco VLS system where the shoulder straps are wider than on the VHS, and a bit more comfortable. Outstanding product, and I was happy that Optics Planet had this in stock, in black, when even Galco had a backorder waiting period.
Pros: quality leather
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes

Great Holster

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on May 14, 2012
Great quality and fitting holster. Initially broke in holster using the freezer bag suggestion from Galco website and Galco Draw-EZ. The vertical carry is safe and secure. Would be nice for an option to attach to belt. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a shoulder holster.
Pros: Secure vertical carry
Cons: No belt attachment options...
Would recommend: Yes
