    A Brief Review: Galco King Tuck Holster Comment
    Gregory Morris, 4/4/11 3:26:13 pm
    I like my Galco Stow'n'Go Holster, but it isn't as secure or sturdy as I'd like, and offers little in the way of retention. It is great if you need to quickly decide to go strapped, but I don't recommend it for everyday carry. So while I was away in the sandbox, I ordered one of the newly released Galco King Tuck IWB holsters. It was waiting for me when I got home:


    One word review: Like.

    It isn't all that different from a Crossbreed Supertuck. In fact, it wouldn't be hard to argue that Galco borrowed heavily from their design. Needless to say, if you like the Crossbreed or similar IWB holsters, you'll like the King Tuck.

    The retention is perfect. My loaded G26 won't come out when it is upside-down, even with a few jars and shakes. The draw is smooth. The kydex holster allows for easy one-handed reholstering. Those things are not negotiable for a daily carry holster. What impressed me the most is how dang comfortable it is. The two clips hold it in place securely, and the leather is everywhere it needs to be to provide comfort no matter how you are sitting or standing.

    The concealment is what you'd expect. With my G26, I can wear it with a loosely fitting t-shirt and have minimal printing. I tucked it a few days just to try that out, and it was fine, although I doubt I'll carry it tucked unless I have another covering garment (i.e. a Hawaiian shirt.) However, until Open Carry passes in Florida, this is a good feature to have on a windy day.

    I've been testing it over the last two weeks by wearing it everywhere, including my recent roadtrip up to West, by God, Virginia and back to Florida. When a tuckable IWB holster doesn't become bothersome after being belted into your car for 16 hours straight, you know you have a winner.



    I like it so much, I'm ordering one for my new Kimber as well.

    Was the retention checked when wearing or when off of the body as in the picture. All of the hybrid holsters like the minotaur, Cross Breed, King Tuck, Tucker Answer I have seen and read about do not have good retention when not being worn. The retuntion uses the pressure exerted on the leather side to hold the gun against the kydex side.

    As far as design there are only so many ways to shape kydex to a gun and only so many shapes that will work for the leather backing piece before it gets repetitive.

    I checked the retention both on and off, and it is secure either way. Since I will occasionally drive through states where concealed firearms are not allowed in restaurants which serve alcohol, I find it convenient that the holster allows me to quickly remove it and put it back on with confidence that the gun is secure.
