    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.

    Thumbs up Beautiful Rig!

    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.

    Have one of these and a combat master. Too much cant for me. There is a point of deminishing returns on holster cant and this one is juuuuuust right at the edge. Of course the easy way to tell cant in a pic is draw an imaginary line between the tops of the belt slots and turn your head until that line is horizontal. 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.
