    Anyone use a Galco Matrix holster?

    I just ordered a Galco Matrix OWB holster with snap loops to carry a HK P2000sk. For the low price I thought I couldn't lose too much in experimenting. I currently use a Galco Concealable (that I like alot), but I'm looking for something easier to put on and get off. Has anyone used one of these? What is your feed back? Thanks.

    I use one to carry my xd45 compact and I love it. It's the best holster I have found so far and you cant beat the price i'm sure you won't be dissapointed.

    I have one and used it a few times. I don't know how long the Matrix would last, how many cycles of on/off, but it is cheap enough and held the gun close. I'd pick it over the other "cheap" holsters I've seen. I tried it more as an experiment. Seemeds like a good deal for the money, but as a belt slide, it was letting the rivet on my jeans scratch up my 1911s so I had to go to something else, a Comp-Tac paddle.

    I didn't like mine as much as a blackhawk CQC holster I already had, so I traded it.

    I had also ordered the shoulder-rig (matrix) at the same time, and I kept the holster from that set-up to use cross-draw for long road trips. The shoulder rig itself is useless for all but the largest individuals (I'd say at least 300lbs), unless you want to trim and sew the six feet of straps down to a usable length.

    I have Blade-Tech, Blackhawk, Fobus Revolution, and the Matrix holsters. I carry my Sig 226 in one and Sig 229 in another. I like the Matrix the best by far.

    I have one for my XD .40, it works good under a t-shirt or a untucked polo I wear mine at the 3:00 position. It sometimes gets uncomfortable if I wear it for a long period of time., but for the most part its a good holster.

    The way it presses up against my hip, but thats only if I wear it for more than 12 hours or so. I wear it in the 3:00 position when it starts to get uncomfortable I move it back to the 3:30-4:00 position. then its good to go. I think its because of how its made. Don't get me wrong its a good holster.

    well it came in today and acting like a little kid on christmas...i tore the box open even before i got inside my apt(meet the ups guy outside)all i have to say is..
    complete difference.holds my beretta high and tight to my side.not to mention me getting in/out of my car.(no more slowly sitting down and guiding the holster to a comfy spot.even with empty holster)

    next thing is better belt,old one is sagging and stretching holes

    I've heard a bunch of good reviews from different forums, so I decided to purchase one today along with a Galco belt (wide COP). Now, just have to wait till they get here. I can't wait!
