PHOENIX, April 2020
When the wilderness beckons, reach for Galco’s Great Alaskan™ chest holster. With thousands in use for shorter-barreled revolvers and autos, we’re excited to introduce a model for longer revolvers. By popular demand, the Great Alaskan is now available for revolvers with 6” – 6 ½” barrels from S&W, Ruger, Colt and others!
Ideal for both handgun hunting and protection while fishing, camping or hiking in bear country, the Great Alaskan’s positioning on the chest keeps it clear of gear carried near the waistline and also helps keep your handgun dry when wading. It’s also a great choice for riding, whether on an ATV or on horseback.
Speed can be essential when easily-spooked game or an unpredictable predator appears, and the Great Alaskan’s positioning at the front of the body offers a speedy and simple draw.
An outdoorsman’s holster also needs to retain the handgun in the rough-and-tumble hunting and hiking fields. The Great Alaskan ensures secure retention with a simple safety strap that features a glove-friendly polymer finger tab.
Longer-barreled revolvers aren’t typically lightweights, of course, especially in their steel-framed variants. The Great Alaskan is extremely comfortable with heavy handguns, with both a wide premium-steerhide shoulder strap and a torso strap that helps bear the weight of a large-frame revolver.
The Great Alaskan is constructed of extremely sturdy yet beautiful premium steerhide in Galco’s signature hand-rubbed, oil-finished tan. Holster, harness and straps come ready for easy end-user adjustment. The harness will also accept an optional carrier for spare ammo, sold separately.
Currently available for right-hand draw, the Great Alaskan retails for $225.
