So I while I await the arrival of my license to carry I am getting all my ducks in a row. I bought a Galco King Tuck that arrived today for the M&P 40 (although I have an SD40 which fits it also) and thought I'd give my initial impressions.
Great quality first and foremost. It is adjustable which I like too. The holster has built in butt forward cant and the adjust-ability allows for more if you wish. The molded part is tight, but well made and the holster fits my frame well (5'11 and 200lbs).
Since I can't carry outside my property I can only say that my wife, kids, and dogs did not and have not noticed me wearing it for the last 3 hours. I even held my kids, put them on my shoulders as we played with the dogs, and had them hug me and such, none the wiser. Best part is I am in shorts, and a t-shirt tucked in. I'd say that is good concealment.
I can't legally drive with a loaded gun until the permit gets here but I did sit in my car (lowered BMW 3 series) and can say while it isn't super comfortable, I can easily drive with it on and not be too uncomfortable, at least on short trips (wouldn't want to drive hours with it on though). Around the house in various chairs, couch's, etc it is just fine. Draw is a little tough but in the heat of battle, I suppose it is a non issue cause if you give it a nice jerk, it comes out with no problem. The hard mold keeps my trigger nice and protected so no chance of accidental discharge and the holster has leather that is between all parts of the weapon and myself.
Mine has black metal hooks that securely hold it to my belt and unlike loops, you absolutely would NEVER notice these as long as I wear a black belt.
Rarely does a product live up to it's "marketing hype" but this holster does and I will buy from Galco again. Another nice touch is I ordered it on Sunday night and it got here today. For $66 shipped to my door, it was a great investment.
Oh, one last thing, I tend to wear my OWB holster right at 3 oclock. With this style holster that is insanely uncomfortable. It really does better at 4-5 oclock so if you like the 3 oclock position, this isn't a good option.
