Now using a Galco King Tuk...

Post Number:#1  Postby GSMetal » Sat Mar 21, 2015 10:09 am

Decided that my Vedder Rapid Tuck was a little too weighty so I thought I would give the Galco King Tuk a whirl. I'm hoping that with the 2 clip system the weight of the entire piece is evenly distributed and more comfortable.

I'll keep you posted...

I hope it holds up better for you. I bought one and the leather backing started to separate on me withing ten days. Fortunately I bought it locally, at Fleet/Farm, and was able to return it. The top edge of the leather separated and started to curl in opposite directions.

A buddy of mine had issues with the leather on his king tuk also. His ended up cracking, making the holster super uncomfortable.

I'm sorry. I like some Galco products, but that is just TOO BIG for an IWB rig. I have precisely one IWB holster that I like and use.

I use the ARG. Simple, comfortable, and light. Holds the gun securely. Matching mag carrier on the off-side. Yes, Mitch Rosen holsters are expensive. You get what you pay for.

Stay safe.

I've abandoned the hybrid kydex/leather holsters. I agree that they are too big. I bought a Tagua for my XD sub and discovered everything from the 1911 down to a PF9, all fit it snugly. I haven't used a Kydex holster since I bought this one. http://taguagunleather.com/new/dsh-dual ... olster-p65

Well I took the King Tuk back. I didn't feel it was any more comfortable than my Vedder Rapid Tuck so back she went. I will say that it's well made but it is also a very big boy.

I did order a Remora Tuckable last night which is a completely different type of set up so we'll see how that goes. I'll keep you posted!

Do you have an IWB (In Waist Band)?

I looked into Tagua, but I don't like the hard plastic paddles. I just ordered a Kramer Leather horsehide paddle holster for my G-27, and they will open up the bottom a little for me so it will also hold a G-23 or G-19.

It's pricy, but hard to find a comfortable leather paddle any more. http://kramerleather.com/products.cfm?categoryID=25

Funny, I bought one, wore it a couple of times, I did not like it. It has its own space in the infamous drawer!

I have been using comp-tac holsters forever. I love the spartan iwb but would also recommend the mtac for a little more comfort.

No, that was long ago. Still wearing the Tagua DSH that I bought to replace the Galco.

As far as the Ural is concerned, I'm waiting for you to offer the purchase loan. I can pay you back $5 a week, forever. :-D

Seriously, Barb is about to start the one year countdown to retirement. We just purchased an old motorhome, with hopes of some traveling come Sept. of 2016.
