I'm looking at a Galco Executive for a Glock 33/26. I want to know if this could be worn Under a T-shirt, next to the skin. I'm in Nevada & it gets hot here, so sweat is normal.

How comfortable it's going to be is something only you will be able to tell. I'm not sure how comfortable it's going to be for you. You'll just have to try it out.

But, just out of curiosity, how do you expect to get to it under a t shirt? That's a difficult draw...

Smalls, when I was healthy & strong, before my CCW, I carried a 5" blade (Scrap Yard Dumpster Mutt) is a shoulder rig under the t-shirt for years, & found it quick & handy. Tip up & handle down. I I'm used to pulling from my underarm cross draw & thought this would be good for me CCW, but I'm concerned how the leather harness would handle sweat.
I understand it's fully lined, but I would be buying sight unseen, thus the ?'s.

When I carried before, it was in a home-made rig of para cord & kydex. Not leather.

Yeah, but guns have more corners to get caught on shirts. It's just a very slow draw, in order not to get caught on your shirt. Remember, you'll have a thumb break on it, too. Definitely different than a knife.

I understand you'll be buying it sight unseen, but we can't tell you how comfortable or uncomfortable it will be for you. Leather holds up pretty well to sweat.

I respectfully disagree on the sweat and leather. As a cowboy shooter, we wear suspenders. The first thing to get cracked and break is the button harnesses. Continous wet and dry causes brittleness. The thicker part of the suspenders will last a little longer.
The shotgun belt around the midriff will mold to the body quickly with the assistance of the sweat.
And all of this is worn on the outside of the clothes. The guys normally will stay wet from the belly button to crotch. The shotgun belt and the holster rig keeps the moisture.
And I think the rig would be very uncomfortable.

You know, I guess Red Cent is right. Most belt holsters don't really have the stress put on them that a shoulder holster has. The moisture combined with the stress may crack the leather.

It's new & too tight to insert & draw the woepon. I'm stretching it now 2 grocery bags at a time. Very well made, but the inner side is leather, I thought it was lined in something else.
