Versacarry Mayhem

Versacarry, the holster company based in Bryan, TX, is now selling its new Mayhem shoulder holster system. The Mayhem shoulder holster system has a custom polymer molded retention adjustable front holster shell that is designed with pistols which have slide mounted electronic red dot sights. Furthermore, the mouth of the holster is open so as to not interfere with handguns that have threaded or extended muzzles. The Mayhem’s harness system is made from premium tanned water buffalo hide. A dual magazine pouch also comes with the Mayhem system and it is carried on the other side of the body opposite of the holster. Currently, the Mayhem shoulder holster system is only available for right handed shooters and in the color black.

Versacarry set up the Mayhem shoulder holster system to be compatible with a selection of popular handguns currently available on the market. The pistols which currently fit the Mayhem holster include the Glock 19 or Glock 43, the H&K VP9 SK, the Kimber Mako, the Ruger Max 9, the Smith and Wesson M&P Shield (9mm or .40 S&W), the SIG Sauer P320, P365 and P365 XL, the Springfield Hellcat and XDM and the Taurus GX4 and G3C.
