Mine came in today as an early birthday present. I really wanted a rig with sharkskin trim like Eric at HBE makes, but funds were limited. I got the holster, DMC double mag carrier and allegedly matching belt.
I say allegedly matching because the belt is lighter even though it's the same color from the same manufacturer. Oh well, it's decent for the price, and I like the open top. The lack of a body shield makes for an easier draw IMO.
Every Galco I've tried (3) have turned to pure mush after a couple of years. They are a factory assembly line using what I consider to be poor quality leather.
I have worn a similar combo with the same Galco tapered belt, Concealable holster and ammo carriers for years. For me all components have held up wonderfully, especially the belt which I have worn to work all week every week and everywhere after work as well. The only reason I have to DX the belt is the fact that my June 29th Gastric Bypass has caused me to lose 55 pounds so far and I may not be able to keep punching in new holes.

As you can see, a lot of cant to that holster.
That is my personal preference. My dad has a couple concealables and really likes them. To each their own.
