    Galco concealable questions

    I'm wanting to try one of these for my snub nose revolvers and was wondering if this is a low or a high ride OWB holster? Does it put the revolvers cylinder at or above the belt line? Also how well does this conceal a snub nose under t shirts and polo shirts? If anyone here uses one of these to ccw a snub nose could you please post a pic of it being worn so I can see where it sits on the belt?

    I cant draw from a high ride OWB rig properly due to a neck/should injury and I find IWB carry of a snub nose very uncomfortable,i guess it my build maybe,but I've tried a lot of IWB rigs and none seem to work for me with the snubs i have. Thanks for any info guys.

    There are many styles from Galco. What is the manufactures series Name and Model number? What exact revolver and what barrel length? Is it a bull barrel?

    1911luver;

    I have the same problem and have found that the Alessi CQC/s works well. I don't know anything about the Galco but you might also want to check with Ray @ Lobo Leather. I know he does alot with wheel guns.

    Good luck.

    The Concealable is a high ride holster, it may not work for you. Also, I found that the Concealable (A in picture) doesn't conceal as well as their other styles; it sticks out more.

    Here is a comparison I did with two holsters, one of which is the Galco Concealable. It is with a semi-auto but does give you some idea as to how it sits:
