New IWB Revolver Holster From Galco

galco1

A large number of people purchase firearms for home defense, and those that do must decide on issues such as whether to carry at home, keep the gun in a safe, store it loaded or unloaded – the list goes on. But that pales in comparisons to the decisions and training that go into choosing – and using – your daily carry. Ignoring the very real issues surrounding choice of caliber, model, and ammunition, and only taking into consideration mode of carry still doesn’t make things easy. Do you carry on your belt? IWB? Ankle holster?

Carrying a gun for self-defense purposes is a serious responsibility, one that is taken far too lightly by a number of gun owners. If you’re going to go out armed, it’s your responsibility to be properly trained and proficient with your firearm, both for your own sake and for the safety of those around you. You should also take care to choose the right holster.

If you prefer to CC a revolver, Galco has a new holster coming out that allows you more than just on-the-belt options. It’s their popular WalkAbout IWB holster, and it’s now available for revolvers. In addition to your gun the WalkAbout can also carry an HKS-style speedloader or moon clip. This is a soft holster made of Center Cut Steerhide, featuring an injection-molded nylon clip that fits belts up to 1 3/4″ wide.

The Walkabout IWB for revolvers is currently being offered for various models made by Charter Arms, Ruger, S&W, and Taurus. MSRP is listed on Galco’s website as $51.95.

    Carry at home?
    If you need to carry inside your own house you should move.

    • imachinegunstuff

      yeah but Im not taking my gun on and off every time I get home. Plus Sharon Tate lived in a nice neighborhood, with all the security fixings, and it didn’t work out for her.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        There was no security there that night. The killers just walked in. Bad example.

        • imachinegunstuff

          But it was gated, in a nice neighborhood, no reason to move, but I bet a gun could’ve served them well. The same with the mom in the middle class NJ home who pumped a home invader with 5 rounds of 38, or the Grandpa in rural NC who chased off three home invaders with a gun.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            I’m not saying a gun wouldn’t have helped I’ve got loaded guns all over my place. I just don’t see the need to have one in my pants while I’m doing the dishes. Sometimes I’ll have my M4 out on the table just because it looks cool though.

          • imachinegunstuff

            To me a large part of it is laziness. I don’t want to take it off, just to put it back on again when I leave. I also occasionally have my Scorpion out, cause the coolness

          • Dan Atwater

            Yeah, I don’t see how the “carry at home” concept is weird unless one is averse to carrying a gun in general. It’s far easier to leave a gun attached to pants all day than it is to remove it, store it, and remove the holster every time I come home. Leaving it on all day is simply a non-issue for me, since its presence isn’t really noticeable anyway.

            I also keep my wallet and keys in my pockets all day too, though I suppose some folks don’t do that either. Same thing.

          • Bill

            I’ve got fire extinguishers and first aid kits in multiple locations in my cars and house, but I don’t carry them with me.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            To each his own. I work outside all day in a lot of protective gear so when I get home I immediately dump everything. But if something goes down there’s a heater nearby.

          • Cynic

            Iv got kids at the house so I carry rather than having one unsecured

          • Bill

            If you have an M4 on your table, somebody else should be doing the dishes.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            I have a dishwasher now so me and the M4 can watch Seinfeld.

          • Bill

            I used paper plates – the rack in a dishwasher is a perfect storage spot for handguns that no burglar will look in.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            Easy clean up after a trip to the range.

      • Dan

        Ok i have to ask about your name. Do you mean you machine gun stuff as in shoot them or you machine gun stuff as in making parts and/or accessories.

    • Dan

      I know I don’t need to. I have a sign on the door informing people weapons are not allowed on the premises.

  • Bill

    Do you realize how rare home invasions are? Do you realize that most home invasions are one gang or drug crew ripping off another? Do you understand that most burglary s occur during the day, and are intentionally done when no one’s home?

    Sometimes I carry at home, particularly when I’m in and out running errands. Sometimes I’ve carried at home when someone has driven up my 300 yard isolated rural driveway. But normally I don’t – after carrying guns at work and out off-duty I like not having to.

    • Beju

      If I’ve got a gun out of the safe, I like it on my person or within arm’s reach.

      However, I often wonder if people who plan for violent home invaders are as prepared for/concerned about the much more likely occurrence of a house fire.

      Unless, of course, they are drug dealers, members of theft rings, or have violent/crazy exes. Then I suppose their odds are considerably higher.

      Try listening to a police scanner in a major Southwestern city.

  • Swarf

    Y’all need to chill out. What do you think this is, Paris?

      Too soon, I spent the night on CNN with phones glued to each ear.
