Great craftsmanship, worth the wait!
Customer service was excellent. The holster works well as expected. This holster was hard to find and they had it in stock. Very pleased with this purchase.
Long's Shadow was able to manufacture a holster for my Springfield 1911 Emissary, when no one else could. Good work!
Fantastic holster fits my stacatto xl like a glove not to mention the fact these people are the greatest folks to deal with ,they know their stuff
As a hobbiest USPSA shooter the Huron was well worth the time and money.
Long Shadow’s customer service is outstanding as they even checked in with me before shipping it out to verify it was specifically for competition use.
They were not lying when they said it was slick! By far the smoothest holster I own and it draws faster then my safariland. I Use mine with a safariland mid-ride and some zip ties to keep it carry-optics compliant. However with the QLS it now sits too far away from the body so I will need to find some hardware that will work without the standoffs. In the meantime my level 1 matches don’t care about the excess ~ 1/2” or whatever it is.
Great Job on the custom color holster. Fit is perfect.
So I waited a month to review this holster. Finding a holster for an Atlas is beyond difficult - not a lot of options. This Huron is fantastic. The cuts and retention are exactly where they need to be. My draw is smooth and clean without the gun hanging up on anything. Lead time took longer than I had hoped but in the end it was worth it. I need another for sure. Thanks again guys for creating my "go to"!
By far the best holster ever perfect fit for my hk vp9L not many out there that offer a holster for this gun. Perfect fit boss hanger worked perfect with my double alpha belt great set up easy to use and great service
Perfect! Received it quick. Trevor was first rate! Thanks for a wonderful holster and quick turnaround especially now!
Very well made holster!!!
Picking the Huron for my shadow 2 was a great investment in my competition shooting. The knobs adjust very easily and the retention is both stiff in knowing it holds the pistol firmly, but smooth when I draw. The customer service has been great, would buy again.
The holster fits perfect and the black multi-cam looks amazing. I ordered the holder with the two user adjustable knobs. The only recommendation I have is if the knobs come in a choice of black or silver. The holster is dark and the knobs are bright silver. Easy fix with paint though.
great personal service
Every gun deserves one of these holsters. The draw from these is amazingly smooth and the quality is top notch. Long Shadow customer service is fantastic and I will be ordering more holsters from them.
amazing holster that fits perfectly, draws smoothly, and has a great amount of adjustability. Probably the best holster I have ever owned
I own a lot of Long's Shadow products - 10 mag carriers and 5 holsters; 4 of which are Hurons. They have become my most trusted holster for competition. The Huron is absolutely flawless in fit, finish and function. Well done LS!!!
The attention to detail in the work Josh and he team puts out is second to none. I ordered with adjustable knobs giving me the ability to tune to my specific draw which saves seconds on overall time. Just shot a USPSA event and moved UP 10 spots!!!!
I have purchased many holsters for my sti combat master, but this holster has everything I have been looking for.
I'm pretty sure this is the best quality holster you can buy. You can see the level of pride that goes into these things; the design, craftsmanship, and quality of materials is top tier. I have an Antero for my carry gun (Walther PPQ), and I wouldn't rely on any other holster-maker while carrying on the street, or (now) carrying in the woods with my Stock III 10mm. The retention system in these is just fantastic, with a solid "pop" that can be fine tuned just to my liking; unlike most which rely on frictional drag along the entire slide to maintain adequate retention. Overall I couldn't be happier and will plan to outfit any future handguns with an LS holster.
Not only is the Huron holster perfect for my Staccato XL, but the staff at Long's Shadow Holster are equally as amazing. They took the time to sit down with me and help me narrow down exactly what I was looking for, and they offer plenty of customization choices. Definitely one of the very few companies out there for STI guns and I'll be coming back for sure.
Very satisfied with the product. Finish is nice and clean. Fit is perfect and is adjustable as needed. I asked for the Blade Tech mounting system which was provided, and the holster is properly drilled for several different mounting systems. Retention is fine for my purposes; a quarter turn of the adjusting screw allows a clean, smooth draw yet keeps the gun solidly in the holster in a scuffle (or if I decide to do some break-dancing). It is NOT sufficient to keep someone from grabbing the gun out of the holster; i.e., no locking button as in an Uncle Mike's reflex holster . . . but that was NOT one of my requirements.
As I said, I'm very happy with the product. I'm less happy with the delivery time. While I do recognize that my gun was new on the market (an STI Staccato C), and that that meant development time to build a new holster capable of housing that gun, it still seemed like a long time between order and receipt (ordered 12/25, received 4/17). But the quality and functionality of a custom holster for my gun now enables me to continue my training at a higher level because I know the gun is secure and my gun handling will NOT present any safety risks.
So I had a Huron mad at the end of last season for my Combat Master and was blown away with the fit and workmanship in this product. I immediately placed an order for a twin of it to have a backup. It’s amazing how all of my STI 2011 can fit in the same rig. I have had dozens and dozens of setups over the years and these are some of the best I have had the pleasure of owning. Plan on ordering another for 1911 frame.. A+++
Amazing workmanship on this holster. My STI P Duo with Surefire x300u fits perfectly snug in this holster. Paired this holster with UBL and QLS system. Retention is adjustable and fitment is great. Draw is smooth and easy. Looking forward to putting good use to this Huron with some range time. Definitely worth the wait and will return as a customer to get another holster
Thanks for the great product and customer service.
I needed a holster for my Tanfoglio Defiant Stock I and they made a wonderful holster for me. Beautiful, great retention, and very high quality. Thank you.
Fantastic holster. Performs very well and looks super cool. Great customer service too!
Got the Huron competition holster and mag pouches. Long wait (shipped to Europe), but definitely worth it. Perfect fit for my Q5, smooth draw, no retention adjustments needed. Slight adjustment needed for the mag holders, but extremely easy to do. Out of the several holster/pouches combos I used (for this gun and a couple others), these are the best ones by far regarding finish, looks, ease of setup and use, even price (including customs tax in my particular case).
Great customer support as well, quick replies and fast solutions offered, so I'll absolutely recommend and buy again. Keep up the good work guys!
Wow! What an amazing quality made product. It was completely worth the wait. I will be ordering more in the future.
It took a while to get but the draw from this holster is awesome. I love it and would recommend it to anyone.
Excellent customer service!! I really couldn’t be happier! True craftsmanship. Thank you!!
Took a little over 8 weeks to get it. The magazine release was sitting on the edge so I cut and sanded a little bit to fit better, and ended up sanding all the edges. Now it fits great and the edges are smooth like glass. I would order again since there are not many companies that offer holsters for sti. I am waiting on a quandry for a dvc c.
This is the BEST holster I have! Quality made, beautifully colored and styled. I just totally upped my game in IDPA with this holster! Well worth the wait too!
Great fit. Awesome for competitive courses!
Ok it is very hard to find any left handed holsters for oddball guns like the RIAs I own. This is my second holster, and I am thoroughly pleased with the design of these holsters. They don’t twist, slide under or buckle during a draw. Everything slides out smooth and crisp. Every time I order, I have to wait 2 months for delivery cause us lefties are special. Worth every minute of wait.
This holster is SO well made and fits the gun perfectly! It took a while to get here, but was well worth the wait. Have ordered another one already. Excellent quality and workmanship. Would highly recommend!
I went with a Ben stoeger mount and the Deadpool theme. Very happy with the final product. Looks great and functions well. The retention is somewhat different than other holster makes. It feels smoother and less like you are trying to break apart 2 attached pieces of plastic.
Great fit, perfectly formed holster. Very smooth draw, great option for USPSA shooting. Would definitely order again.
Holster fits the HK VP9L like a glove. Nice in and out glide like a pro at the bunny ranch. The only issue I had is the color choice. Next time Ill stick to the color I choose over what was given with looking. My fault but that's why God gave is spray paint and common sense right?! lol
A lot lighter weight then I expected. Fits great. Only need to slightly adjust the screws to get a big difference in retention. Would buy again
I ordered the competition holster for my STI DVC 3 gun..and it came so fast and it’s awesome quality! There were some other companies I could have gone with..but I chose Long’s Shadow because I’ve heard great things. I am not disappointed!
This is a very well built holster, with great retention and excellent fit and finish. Not much else to say.
Great holster, excellent build quality. Fast turnaround time.-Two weeks from the the day I ordered and it was in my mailbox.!
This is my third holster from Josh and the boys. It is for my Beretta Elite LTT and I have been spending a fair bit of range time with it in preparation for IDPA and a combat type league coming up. Fit and finish is top notch. I am also a CZ fan boy and getting holsters for some of the models can be hard to find. Not to worry. If they do not show a mold for it they are happy to make it for you if they have the pistol. Some times their lead times can be a little long but I am always happy I went with them when the product shows up ! Thanks guys !!!!
Outstanding holster, even better customer service.
Great retention and excellent quality. The adjustment knob works great. Best customer service ever in the history of holster companies
Great holster great customer service
I purchased the Huron for IDPA. I love this thing. Really stepped up my game. Furthermore the craftsmanship is impressive.
This is my second Huron holster! I have one for my G19 and G34! Both holsters perform very well! Smooth draw and easy reholster!! Fits the guns perfect!! Josh is great to deal with and run a very good company. I definitely recommend buying this holster for sure.
My best holster i ever had ! The fit and finish is beautiful ! Made in u.s.a ! Definitely i will order another for my other gun ! It's long wait but its worth ! 101 percent satisfaction !
"WOW" what a nice surprise! I own quit a few holsters and I have to say this one did wow me.
And I ordered an additional carry holster.
The fit is excellent for my threaded with suppressor height sights STI 2011. The holster is very clean cut. The quick adjustment knob is a great feature. Keeping from five stars is that the front sight does not sit in the center of the holster cutout, this may be because it was compressed further than usual due to suppressor height sights. Another thing that would take it to the next level is a slight taper to the top of the holster for reholstering, but that's far from a deal breaker.
Retention on the pistol is at the top of the slide, adjusting the screws in back does little to alleviate or tighten the fit. Inside the holster is textured, not smooth, makes distinct dragging sound on draw. The retention point on the slide is already showing drag marks on inside of holster after a few draws. This will likely wear the finish on slides.
(Long's Shadow Owner)
After receiving this review, I would like to have had the opportunity to speak to the issues this user is having with his/her holster. It is apparent from his/her statements that they have little to no knowledge of the properties of Thermoform holster material (Kydex, Boltaron, Holstex) and holsters in general. The texture on the inside of the holster is the smoothest available for all thermoform products. The retention will always be the clamp force of the thermoform material clamping against the slide/firearm (friction retention or Level 1). Holster wear although minimal for the first 50 to 100 draws, is an inevitable part of holstering a firearm. Significant wear or unmanageable retention is an issue we at Long's Shadow can work to alleviate. If after reading this you have any questions or concerns, I would urge you to contact or swing by our office to go over our products and service. We pride ourselves on providing the best customer service and the highest quality products in the industry.
Looks great, feels great, fits great.
This is a great product and this company has excellent service. I originally ordered the wrong hanger and the owner took the time to talk me through what I needed and had me ship my holster back so they could put on a different piece properly for me. I highly recommend this holster and company.
I wasn't familiar with Long Shadow Holsters before I made my purchase but they were one of few that make a holster specific to the STI DVC 3 Gun. I took a chance and purchased a Huron Holster, and I couldn't be happier with what I received. Fit and finish is great, retention is great, and with the black carbon fiber finish is looks pretty bad ass too! I've already recommended these holsters to other and I WILL be a repeat customer myself!
I had some question before ordering, messaged them on IG and got back to me in a few minutes and got it all handle (plus it was Easter Sunday). Got the holster to my door at a good reasonable time since they are made to order. The quality is where it's at, having bought holster from other companies LONG SHADOW holsters are top notch.
-Hardware is a nice touch
-Quality kydex used
-Nice strong thickness until others that are really flexible
-The cut of the holster is aggressive as in it just looks sharp good looking holster
-Edges are finished off and buffed
-Nice Long shadow emblem even comes with a keychain
Highly recommend to all shooters, if you have doubt don't worry about it you won't be disappointed.
The smoothest drawing holster I own to date. Great customer service to boot.
Best holster I have ever used. Perfect fit for the gun, excellent retention and adjustability. Craftsmanship was top notch highly recommended.
I ordered two of these and am extremely impressed thus far. Fit and function are both superb. I was also very appreciative that LSH offers holsters for so many different types of pistols. I searched far and wide, and LSH was quite literally the only company who would make holsters for both an FNX45T and M9A1. I'm considering ordering more to replace some of my Raven Concealment holsters for these.
Really the best holster I ever buy... Great quality excellent service.. Very happy overall
I am extremely pleased with the Huron holster for my STI Hex Tac 2011. There are limited holster options on the market for 2011 pistols. Longs Shadow Holsters has an excellent selection. I prefer and use G Code RTI system and enjoy seing holsters made with that attachment capability. Mounting options are integrated and available for other common competition applications. The fit and finish of my holster is amazing. I have owned holster from companies like Raven Concealment, Bravo Concealment, T Rex Arms and RDR gear. The fit and finish on my Longs Shadow Holster is far superior to the other holsters I have owned. Attention to detail along with listening to customer feedback and adjusting your product is vital in this industry. I believe Longs Shadow does exactly that. I look forward to purchasing several holsters in the future.
have not been able to find a good holster for my 2011 with a light so i called Long's and 4 weeks later i have a holster that works great, the Huron works great and fits perfect with my gun and TLR1 light. needed the light because my local 3 Gun club does several night tournaments . thx for a great holster
After borrowing a friends huron, I decided to order one. In the meantime I was using a DAA holster that just wasn't cutting it. Order shipped in the expected timeframe and I am actually more impressed than I was with my friends. went with the grey carbon and lovethe look! Only had to make one very minor adjustment for fitting my gun and it's running great!
I find the holster I ordered is perfect for carry under a heavy coat and doesn't lose its grip when brushed against door frames heavy brush etcetera.
I purchased this holster based on feedback I'd come across on-line. I was looking for something to use in USPPSA Limited class with my STI Edge. Dropped the pistol into the holster as soon as it arrived and it just plain fits. It was worth the wait and it's nice to receive something that works as advertised. Get one, you'll be glad you did. ;)
I am shooting matches. I finally get a tricked out M&P. Gotta have a holster that works. Tired of having the grip in my armpit. Found this in 'FrontSight'. A whole new dimension to functionality. EVERBODY wants to know where I got it. You bet I tell them. Gonna get another.
This is my second Huron after purchasing one for my single stack race gun I decided to run one for my STI DVC in limited division. So far the holsters have performed flawlessly and I couldn't ask for better quality in workmanship or materials. Paired with the BOSS hanger it is without a doubt one of my favorite holsters having run Bladetech, Ghost, DAA Racer, and others it provides a level of retention and speed that many would love to duplicate.
