PHOENIX, May 2020
Summer has arrived here at the Galco headquarters in Phoenix, with temperatures rising into the triple digits already! The rest of the country isn’t far behind, and now’s the time to start thinking about hot-weather carry options. While Galco has an entire collection devoted to warm weather carry, today we’re focusing on pocket carry.
Pocket carry offers unique advantages. Not only is the handgun completely covered and concealed in very light clothing – even just shorts and a t-shirt – but the carrier can casually place a hand on the holstered/pocketed pistol if a nonspecific threat appears. The fastest draw is to have the gun already in hand!
A pocket holster keeps the firearm in the same general position so you can quickly locate the grip when you need to draw, conceals the shape of the gun so that its outline doesn’t print through the pants, and allows one-handed release of gun from both pocket and holster.
Galco has a long history with pocket holsters, starting with the Front Pocket Holster design, constructed of extremely durable and non-porous horsehide.
The Pocket Protector™ is made of Premium Center Cut Steerhide™, a sturdy but supple leather napped on both sides, and reinforced at the holster mouth.
The new StukOn-U™ uses a synthetic Gripper Shell™ exterior to help grab the inside of the pocket, closed-cell foam substrate for shape and sturdiness, and 420 denier packcloth lining.
Note that – when using any pocket holster – the holster should always be removed from the pocket when holstering the handgun.
We haven’t neglected spare ammo, either!
Revolver carriers can use the simple E-Z Loader™ that slips easily into the pocket, carrying six revolver cartridges in a rubberized strip.
Auto carriers can carry a spare magazine in the PMC™ (Pocket Magazine Carrier), also made of Premium Center Cut Steerhide.
