The Rapid Response® holster is designed for maximum drawing speed without sacrificing the features required for a quality carry holster. 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. While this holster is not quite as concealable as the Lo-Profile® or Covert Companion® it does bring the butt of the gun inward for concealability and works well for most applications. If speed is your primary concern, you need a Rapid Response®. Meets I.D.P.A. criteria.
NOTE on Elephant Hide:
Elephant hide may possibly be the toughest leather available for holsters and will last a lifetime. It is also quite attractive, with a pronounced ripple and grain pattern that is unique to each holster. All elephant hide used in Wilson Combat custom leather products is legally harvested and imported from areas in Africa where the animal population is closely controlled through government sanctioned hunts. Every part of these elephants is used, nothing goes to waste. We are honored to offer this rare and noble leather to our customers. Supplies are always limited.
