Galco COP 3 Slot or Concealble?

I'm looking at making my next holster purchase a Galco. I have customs and want to give Galco a try.

I have narrowed my choices down to the COP 3 Slot for around $50 and the concealable belt holster for around $76.

Does anyone have any opinions on these two? Which seems to be more comfortable for all day carry? Which has a higher ride and more forward cant?

Much thanks......

I have the Cop 3 (Glock 19) and I don't like it. I feel that it rides high; I prefer IWB. YMMV.

Wrascal,
What don't you like about it? Fit and finish? Comfort? Concealability?

Thanks

To me it is large, rides high and is (therefore) uncomfortable.
For comfort, I prefer small IWB, and very low.
Think Mexican Bandito.

Quality wise, I believe that its a fine enuf piece.
And the price was worth trying it.
YMMV.

The COP 3-slot isn't intended to be a great holster. It's intended to be a good value in an inexpensive holster.

The Concealable does carry "high and tight" and this is advantageous for concealed carry. The Concealable is finished to a much higher level, has more forward cant and is very comfortable.

It is my choice for concealed carry much of the time and I carry full time.
