I saw an ad for a new holster from Galco called the Stealth designed for legal concealed carry.

Does any TFL member use this holster.

If so, what are the Pros and Cons?

Thanks for your opinions.

I can't comment on the specific holster. I will say that I have three Galco holsters and all three live in a cardboard box in my basement labelled "holsters that don't work." All of them collapse after drawing.

I recommend custom holsters from folks like Lou Alessi, Milt Sparks, or Rusty Sherrick.

YMMV

I am curious as to why the holster closing when the gun is drawn is a big deal? shouldn't one draw their weapon only in life threatening situations? in this case i should *maybe* need to draw my weapon once or twice, if at all, in my lifetime, correct? i don't see why the holster closing is a big deal. a little background... no, i dont currently carry concealed, but am in the process of getting my permit and thus doing my homework as to what weapon/rig will be my carry choice. i have to say that the glock 26 and Galco deep cover is tops on my list right now. they have come highly reccomended. could you please explain why a holster closing when the weapon is drawn is a big deal?

thanks.

I have one Galco, an Ankle Glove. I tried other Galco products and was unimpressed. The Ankle Glove, however, performs admirably.
