  • World-leading holster manufacturer Galco International, LTD is celebrating its 50th birthday this year. With dozens of patents and singular innovations, the Galco Gunleather™ brand has now remained at the forefront of concealed carry methods and gear for a half century.

    Richard Gallagher, Galco’s founder and President, first established the company in Chicago in 1969. He comments, “It’s hard to believe fifty years have passed since those early days in Chicago: the late 1960s and 1970s, when we were still called The Famous Jackass Leather Company. Looking back, what I remember most is the tremendous sense of excitement, optimism, accomplishment and camaraderie we shared from the beginning.”

    The Famous Jackass Leather Company originally popularized the horizontal shoulder system that came to be closely associated with Galco, as Gallagher renamed the company in 1980, just ahead of a move to Phoenix in 1983. Gallagher has fond memories of that shoulder system, since it was the rig’s appearance on television’s Miami Vice that rocketed Galco to fame. As Gallagher comments, “When I designed that first horizontal shoulder holster for a real police officer back in the early 1970s, I’d have never guessed a fictional vice cop would make it world famous!”

    The horizontal shoulder system, later renamed the Miami Classic™, quickly became the flagship of a line that’s since diversified to include every type of concealed carry holster, concealed carry handbags for women, and a wide range of hunting and sporting accessories.

    It all began with leather holsters, at the time the most common and accessible material for holster construction. Horsehide was a particular favorite in the early years because of its robust durability, Steerhide holsters have always been at the forefront of Galco’s product line with innovations like the forward-molded design of the famous Concealable™ belt holster in 1971.

    In the early 2000s, Galco recognized a need for economical holsters that performed better than the floppy nylon rigs that once dominated the entry-level concealed carry market. Galco developed Premium Center Cut Steerhide™, a heavy-duty unmolded napped leather. This material gave birth to the Carry Lite™ line of high-performance yet modestly-priced holsters, which are now in use by literally hundreds of thousands of gun carriers.

    Galco was one of the early pioneers of the use of Kydex® in the early 1980s, well before it came into vogue as a holster material in the 2000s. Building on that experience, Galco developed hybrid holsters like the KingTuk™ IWB series that fuse the best properties of Kydex holster pockets and comfortable leather backing plates. Galco remains on the cutting edge in both design and production of concealed carry holsters. Heavily incorporating both Kydex and injection-molded polymers, the current thermoplastic holster lines add to the leather and hybrid models.
     
    Today, Galco continues to invest in its employees and facility in Phoenix, to remain the manufacturer of the finest holsters and shooting accessories in the world. Galco is truly, “For those who demand the best…and know the difference.”

  • Galco Gunleather is excited to introduce the Paragon™ AIWB for 2019! Adjustable for angle from strongside to crossdraw, the ambidextrous Paragon is ideally suited for the popular appendix mode of carry.

    With a Kydex® holster body, the Paragon offers comfortable carry, fast draw and easy return to holster. Dual tuckable belt clips ride in slots fore and aft of the gun body, allowing adjustment for ride height and carry angle. Twin tension units allow easy adjustment of the draw stroke. Raised sweat guards on both sides of the handgun protect the wear’s body from the gun and promote a smooth and safe return to holster. Included with the Paragon is an optional claw-type stabilizing wing for those gun carriers who prefer it.

    The Paragon comes with Galco’s patent-pending polymer UniClip™ for excellent concealment, stability and easy on-off capability, and functions well with single or dual clips. Galco’s Ultimate Stealth™ clips are available as an optional purchase for those who prefer even deeper concealment.

    Available in black, the Paragon retails for $79.

  • Galco is excited to introduce the KingTuk™ Classic for 2019! An alternative to Galco’s best-selling KingTuk Deluxe IWB, the new KingTuk Classic provides comfortable carry, fast draw and easy return to holster.

    The smooth, single-layer back plate rides comfortably on the body and quickly conforms to the wearer’s hip. A rigid Kydex® holster pocket provides fast draw and easy holstering. All KingTuk models utilize premium full grain steerhide and are designed to facilitate a full firing grip.
     
    Worn inside the waistband, the KingTuk Classic includes Galco’s patent-pending polymer UniClip™ and Ultimate Stealth™ clip designs for excellent concealment, stability and easy on-off capability. The clips can be moved up or down in the corresponding holes in the leather, enabling the user to set the carry height and angle to suit their unique preferences.

    Accessories for the KingTuk Deluxe, such as the optional metal belt clips and tuckable belt loops, all work perfectly with the KingTuk Classic. Fits include most popular pistols like 1911s, Glock, HK, Ruger, SIG, S&W, and Springfield. Available in black, the KingTuk Classic retails for $79.

  • Galco Gunleather is excited to introduce the Speed Master 2.0™ convertible holster for 2019!

    Featuring an open top design for speed, covered trigger guard for safety, and tension screw adjustment for added security, the highly versatile Speed Master™ 2.0 adds convenient on/off ability to the equation when set up as a paddle holster. As a huge bonus, the Speed Master 2.0 can also be configured as a solid and stable belt holster using the included belt slot attachment.

    The Speed Master 2.0’s excellent versatility derives from its included twin attachment methods – an adjustable belt slot and a paddle – that are quickly and easily interchangeable by the end user. A flat-head screwdriver is the only tool needed to swap one attachment for the other, giving the gun carrier the choice of two carry methods: the convenient paddle design or the stable and traditional belt slot.

    Constructed of premium saddle leather, the Speed Master 2.0 fits belts up to 1 3/4".

    Available for semiauto pistols, the Speed Master 2.0 comes in right hand designs in tan or black finish for $86.

  • Galco Gunleather is excited to introduce the EDC Belt for 2019! An update of the traditional Ranger-style belt, the EDC Belt features an adjustable billet strap and a quick-release “cobra” style buckle.

    Constructed of SCUBA nylon webbing, the EDC (Every Day Carry) Belt features a hook-and-loop billet strap and a cobra buckle, giving wide latitude for adjustment to accommodate waist variations or handguns carried inside the waistband. Rigid and extremely stable, the EDC Belt is an excellent choice for both training and everyday wear with even the heaviest of handguns and accessories.

    1½” wide and available in black and flat dark earth, with four sizes to fit most shooters, the EDC Belt retails for $80.
