    The Galco rig never balances. It isn't designed to with single or double mags. If you think about it , when using a two mag setup you have a gun on the other side with a mag in it. Unless the gun weighs the same as a single mag it doesn't balance.
    That said, it doesn't have to. The weight of each side is borne by the respective shoulder. I have used the Galco rigs for 1911s, Glocks, and revolvers. Very comfortable, durable, and secure.

    The executive is simply a half harness made of calf skin. The standard half harness works just as well and is "half" the price.
    I wear under an aloha shirt or a Dickie type work shirt.

    Thanks! I greatly appreciate the advice. I don't want to end up with the proverbial "drawer full of holsters" trying to find the right one.

    Another alternative is the standard Miami rig with the mag pouch removed and a simple tie down added instead. The Half Harness works well with a lighter gun. The Miami will accommodate any gun.

    just bought a second Galco Miami - great holster for my Glock 22 and am looking forward to putting my XDm in the new one (only single mag pouch on this one though). Very durable, easy to wear.

    Thanks
    I gave up on the horizontal; sweeping everybody behind me makes me uncomfortable; thought of carrying with empty chamber but it goes against my training ...

    Nobody has mentioned the one that works best for me (And is down right popular) and that's the Andrews Leather Monarch. Mine can be quickly changed to carry 1911, snubnose, two mags, two speed loaders and other options available like Gerber Mk II, handcuff case, 10 mag carrier, moon clip carrier, weak side J frame back up, you name it.
