    I bought a Ross holster from Brownells at a good price but it was poorly made. It was lined and in no time the lining was separating from the outside.

    Galco makes good stuff but I always thought it was a little high priced.

    For inexpensive holsters I usually go with Hume, but mostly I check Ebay for a used Kramer or similar and can find a good deal.

    I would go with a Galco as well. However if I can wait, then I would go with a custom manufacturer for a few dollars more.

    Ebay has some good deals but they are usually for right handed people.

    Of the three you listed I picked DeSantis. I have had good experience w/ them for my various Glocks. Although, I like my Fist #10 OWB better.

    I voted Galco, but BlackHawk is a good choice.

    So far I have only one OWB holster. It's a Bianchi that is very comfortable to wear. This holster makes carrying my G26 seem as if it's not even there on my right hip between 2 & 5 o'clock. It cost around $70.00 which I consider is money well spent.

    No store-bought holster ever touches any of my guns.

    I can't comment on a OWB but I have one of their leather pocket holsters. Made well, and they are a good Co. to deal with. They will treat you well.

    Of those choices...the Galco is one of the best made "factory" rigs out there. But I agree with Thumper too. That Kramer Horsehide Scabbard is hard to beat.

    I know there are lots of high quality leather holsters that are very comfortable to wear, but I've only had limited experience with leather so far. Right now I have the DeSantis Speed Scabbard for all my carry guns, and it is a very comfortable design, and rides very close to the body enabling me to conceal full size pistols. I also have a Blackhawk Compact Askins holster for my XD45, that is the holster that got me into leather holsters. I used to be a kydex person.

    Galco are REAL nice. But they have been bought out by a British company and I have no idea if the quality will last.
    Desantis are nice too. I've had a chance to meet with one of the owners. Good people.
    If I were you though, I'd go with one of these smaller artisan guys if you can stand the wait.

    Okay, in that list then I would say Galco. Mostly because its the only brand I own on the list.
    I own Blackhawk CQC, Galco, Bianchi, Unclemikes, and a few no names. The two I use the most are Blackhawk CQC and Unclemikes. The next one I use is Bianchi. I dont use the Galco anymore.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.
