In the past, I’ve mentioned that I’ve got a drawer full of old holsters that I don’t use. In that drawer is a mishmash of old gear from all sorts of manufacturers, but what you won’t find in that drawer are holsters from Galco or holsters from Blackhawk, because I use those rigs. I first used a Galco rig when I was carrying a Ruger GP100, and since then they’ve been my favorite rig for leather holsters. I had a less than stellar experience with one of their plastic holsters, but I have absolutely no reservations about their leather gear. I think it’s affordable, quality gear, which is why at the Gun Nuts Radio Blog there is a post up spotlighting the Galco Paddle-Lite Concealed Carry Package.
For less than $80, you can get a leather holster, a magazine carrier, and reinforced leather gunbelt. It’s all the gear you need for concealed carry, or a great way to get started in IDPA for not a lot of money.
