Galco Leather Speed Paddle Holsters Reviews:


Better Than Most I Have Tried

Like most of us that are carrying concealed now days, I have several "unsuccessful" holsters just taking up space on a shelf. When I first tried it on, I was again feeling a little disappointed. Like several of the other posters have said, I experienced the holster sagging out, it was very difficult to put on, and it is not adjustable for cant. PLEASE KEEP READING IF YOU ARE CRITICAL ABOUT YOUR GEAR, THERE IS MORE!!! As I researched my next holster option one thing kept popping up. All the experts say that with any holster you MUST USE A PROPER BELT. I'm a big guy 6'4" and just to the north side of 300, so positioning can be challanging and the lovehandles can really contribute to pushing the butt of my weapon outboard. Once I actually utilized a stiffer belt (still not a gun belt, just a new leather work belt) it sucked it right into my body. I can only imagine how much improvement I will see when I order an actual gun belt. Also I had to play with where I placed it around my body. I found that by placing it in the 2:30 - 3 o'clock position, it virtually disappeared, I can wear it with a regular T-shirt and it does not print on me at all. It did print very slightly in the 4-5 o'clock position but that was only because I was looking for it. My Wife says she couldn't tell and I walked around and moved for her review, but thats another story. By placing it where I did and it sucking up because of the better belt, it actually blended right into my "body by Krispy Kreme" shape more than satisfactorily. SO as a side note for the big guys, try this position with whatever holster you have. I tried it just to see, and found that it works very, very well. It also has more of a natural feel for a speedy draw than reaching back over my wallet. One reviewer commented on the paddle and it concerned me some at first. I was used to seeing everything with a large paddle such as the Blackhawk one. This one has one of the smallest paddles I have seen. Again, once I found the correct position I found the smaller paddle really made it quite comfortable. When standing I don't notice it digging in and when riding in a vehicle it shifted just enough to an alternate position where I could seat belt in and still have easy access. It is very tight to put on and take off. At first it is work to take it off but after a little practice it is not too difficult. As with anything you have to learn its quirks. As far as the security from others removing it from your person, it is probably as close as you can get to the security of a belt mounted holster, while still being a paddle. It has a very pronounced retention nub on the paddle itself that works from the inside of your pants, so it would be virtually impossible for someone to come up behind you and pull the holster and weapon away from your body and up and take it from you. I think this could happen easily with other holsters where the belt retention nub is on the holster instead of the paddle. They would literally have to break the paddle off to get it. The trigger guard tension screw is very good as well, you can put as much or as little tension as you feel is needed, and the formed fit is spot on for the M&P 9C. I know this has been long winded but I wanted to be critical so that others could benefit from my experience with this holster. If you are considering this holster my opinion is that it is well worth the money, and definitely a high quality production holster that I foresee lasting many years.

Galco paddle holster

Comfortable and easy to use and a nice, reasonable break-in. I use mine with a Ruger LCR .38 Special. Once it's on your belt, it takes some effort to get it off, so I'm not worried about pulling the holster with the weapon. Nice looking leather and good quality.

Galco paddle holster for Ruger LCR

Excellent quality, fits gun tight but can be adjusted, really comfortable and can be moved around the waistband to the most comfortable spot for you. Holds gun very well and does not profile in most situations. I tried several and this is the best.

I use ths holster with my Ruger LCR. very tight fit at first, had to break it in. Great holster, very well made, grips my pants well and stays in place. Conceals my LCR very well under a loose fit T-shirt
