Galco Miami Classic

by Dan, from United States, GA Written on August 27, 2014
I tend to do a lot of research on things I'm interested in purchasing, and this was no different.

First Impression: Overall the system seems to be made pretty well, though I wasn't expecting all the connections to be plastic. With that being said, the holster itself, the magazine carrier, and the straps are made of quality leather and look very nice.

As you may have heard, the holster and possibly the magazine carrier, will need to be broken in. Just put your gun in a freezer bag and insert it into the holster. After about 30 mins, you can remove the freezer bag and you should be able to insert and draw the gun more easily. It may take a little effort to get the thumbreak and the magazine straps to fasten, but it can be done and it will become easier. I had mine fairly broken in within 4 hours of use.

As far as setup goes, I'm still playing with the position. Where it is most comfortable and where it is easiest to draw are not the same, so you should spend a few days with it and find the best place before cutting the excess length off the straps.

I typically open carry in a Serpa paddle holster, and I use a cheap IWB holster when that option isn't a valid option.
I purchased this Holster system to allow more carry options, including under a jacket when winter comes....
Pros:
  • Quality Leather
  • Good Fit (after break in period)
Cons:
  • price
Best Used for:
  • Concealed Carry (Winter/Fall)
  • Easy access in Vehicle
Would recommend: Yes

I was issued one of these downrange and it was great. So is this one. No frills, just does what it is supposed to do. Setting up is easy, could be easier, but that would probably result in a lower quality overall....

A little spendy, but a very good holster

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WI Written on October 28, 2013
I've tried several brands of shoulder systems for my Beretta 92FS, and this is by far my favorite for fit, comfort, and quality. The holster is a very snug fit, so some break-in time is to be expected. The Chicago screws make for easy and secure adjustments, but it may take some time to properly adjust this holster for the best possible fit...having an assistant greatly helps. Overall, this is a very good shoulder system.
Pros: Well made; holster provides a custom, secure fit for your firearm.
Cons: A little expensive, but a good example of 'you get what you pay for.'...

Galco Miami Classic for Glock 30

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on July 28, 2012
Only complaint is the system depends on screws to hold it together. They should supply a spare set based on the price, but they do not and you have to buy them if you want them.
Pros: Quality, fit, capability to be used with other pistols
Cons: None...
