Any experience with Galco concealable?


February 23, 2008, 04:24 PM
I just bought a concealable belt holster from the gunshow for my 1911. I like it, but wanted a review from people who already have one. I know, I know that I should have asked first, but it was an impulse buy.

Well made and very comfortable, since the shape of the inside conforms to the shape of your hip, reducing pressure points. A reinforced lip would be nice, but would add thickness. The more extreme angle may take some getting used to when "presenting" the handgun - you have to cock your wrist a little more than usual.

I carry a HK P2000SK in one with a Galco COPS, 1 1/2" belt. The forward rake is more pronounced than some, at about 20 degrees, but I like it because I wear at about the 4:00 position and the extra rack facilitates an easier draw. FWIW, this was the most perfectly fitting holster I've ever seen. As already mentioned the design, which lays the inside leather flat, is very comfortable. You bought a fine holster. Which pistol will it carry?
Here it is with older brother P7 (riding in a custom holster).

I have one, I normally buy custom holsters but couldn't wait and haven't been disappointed. It is a well made holster, I also like the rake, but takes a while to break in.

The fact that it is molded to the body on the back makes it comfortable but also seemed to contribute to break in time and tightness.

I use a Galco Concealable for my 1911. It's held up and still stiff enough after about five years of near continuous use. I'd rate it as one of the better/best off the shelf holsters.

I just wore it while mowing the lawn today to test it. Not half bad? I hardly noticed it was there. I think I might take a consealed license course this summer, before a libs get into the whitehouse.

I use a Galco Concealable for each of my carry guns. I probably have between 15-20, just ordered another for my new Colt New Agent. The Concealable is hands down my favorite off-duty belt holster. Frankly, I've got several Kramer, Alessi, Null, and Horseshoe Leather holsters "gathering dust" presently.

That is good to hear: it sounds like I got the right holster. Thanks for the input, guys.

Yup, what they said.

I have one of these for each of my carry guns, and I really like the way my pistols are held high and tight to my side. I carry @2:30-3:00 and find the generous rake to suit my draw just fine. Not a cheap holster, but I highly reccommend it.

I ordered a belt from the beltman last week to go with my Galco! I can't wait till it gets here. Oh, and pics of my holster:
