I bought the Galco M6X holster in August for my Glock 17. I carry my G-17 on my farm as backup protection in case I run into some ornery "crider", all weather conditions, always outside. I need a locking holster because I am doing a lot of physical labor and I want the G-17 stay secure in the holster. I really liked the holster for the first two months, until the weather started to get cold in November. That is where the problem surfaced--when the temperature is 40 degrees F or below the thumb release lever takes both of my thumbs to release the firearm--a lot of effort and really, really, hard to do. The M6X is made of a "Thermoplastic" material according to Galco. The M6X retains the G-17 by extending a ledge of plastic into the ejection port. The thumb release levers the locking ledge out of the ejection port by bending the plastic. By definition this plastic gets more flexible as the temperature rises, and stiffer as the temperature decreases. I guess that since Galco is located in Arizona, they did not bother to test the M6X in cold weather. Galco only takes returns for 10 days. Oh, well another one for my holster drawer....
