    HaysHolsters Review: OWB LCR holster

    Got a new rig for my LCR .357 in the mail today, a black OWB LCR holster from Haysholsters.com. After some timely email conversations I officially ordered the holster on 1/18/12 and it arrived today. Jeff suggested a speed strip pouch so I ordered one of those also.

    Fit is excellent. I did the plastic bag routine and flexed the belt wings a little to break it in. Cant is perfect. Retention is excellent. It takes a deliberate pull to remove the gun and I'm getting a very natural transition to low ready. I'll let some pictures speak for themselves.

    I was a little confused at first about an apparent blemish on the back of the holster. Mr. Hays explained that this is a mark left from the wooden billet that he uses in the molding process so we'll just consider this a makers mark.

    Overall I'd rate this rig as excellent especially at the price point - $50 for the holster and $20 for the ammo pouch. Customer service has been excellent also.

    Jeff made a mag carrier for me a couple of weeks ago. Great fit and craftsmanship. Highly recommend him to all.

    I've tried using the watch pocket for various items over the years but I find it annoying while sitting with anything in that pocket.

    The belt channel is nicely molded and fitted. Excellent comfort and body hugging concealability.

    I have a Hay's holster for my LCP and Beretta PX4 SC .40 both great. Will be ordering one for my new Kahr CM9 as soon as possible.

    Cool

    Jeff does good work at a resonable price.

    Below is a pancake convertible OWB/IWB holster and speedstrip pouch that he made for my second generation Detective Special.

    Thanks for the info. I just picked up the same gun yesterday and have been looking for decent quality holster for it.
