Default XDS/ Water Buffalo Holster

This combo works very well for me.


Versa Carry Beltslide holster is ambidextrous.

I'll order the distressed one for a Colt 1911...should handle the AO no problem.

Threetango is that the distressed brown color? Will an XDs45 with a Crimson Trace fit in it?

That is the distressed brown. Each one is a bit different as my other one looks differently than this one.

As is a laser equipped gun won't fit BUT, give them a call at the number in red and I think they can hook you up at no extra charge with one that will.

I actually ordered the English Bridal Leather holster (brown) Protector series in size 4 because their application chart listed it for the XDs with Crimson Trace. I'll post a photo when I get it. Since it so near Christmas it will probably be after the 1st before I get it. Currently I carry in a Barsony OWB with thumb brake.

Well, the English Bridal Leather holster (brown) Protector series came in today. It is very high quality and I'm sure I'm going to like it. It is also very comfortable and I like the extended protector leather. Right now it is very snug fitting on the XDs but I feel like it will loosen up and mold in with use.

Looks good, put some leather conditioner (found at places like Auto Zone) inside and out of the holster and leave the pistol in to get a good fit.

I still have some Neatsfoot Compound that I used to use on my baseball glove. It says it softens and waterproofs all leather goods. Do you think that would work?

12/29 Update: I coated the holster last night with the Neatsfoot Compound, just like I used to do with my ball glove. I holstered the XDs over night while it soaked in and dried. Looking at it this morning I was glad to see that it had done a great job softening and molding the leather. The gun slides snugly in and out with ease. I highly recommend doing this to the Versacarry leather holster. This morning I had errands to do so I strapped it on at the 3 o'clock position. In and out of the truck for about 2 hours. Very comfortable.
