February 2024 – Now Introducing Galco’s Thunderclap™ Belt Holster!

Perfectly mated to everyday carry guns or elegant special-occasion pistols, the Thunderclap™ offers a unique set of features and best-quality construction methods. The Thunderclap is the first holster in Galco’s Masterbilt™ series of best-quality, premier-grade holsters.

Constructed of our finest, fully-lined premium steerhide, the Thunderclap features detailed hand-molding for both secure retention and a beautiful appearance. The smooth leather lining provides increased tactile feedback on the draw while easing wear on more-delicate handgun finishes. The refinement of leather lining is not only practical – it also enhances the overall look and feel of a hand-crafted premium holster.

The Thunderclap’s near-neutral (vertical) cant gives it the fastest, wrist-locked draw stroke, while the reinforced opening provides easy, one-handed return to the holster. Relieved at the base of the trigger guard, it allows a full firing grip in the holster. The metal-reinforced tunnel-style belt loop provides excellent rigidity during carry and on the draw, and the trailing belt slot aids with concealment – even with large defensive handguns. A molded sight rail prevents snags on the draw.

The only foreseeable drawback to the new Galco Thunderclap Belt Holster is the price. This new holster has an MSRP of $249 – ouch! But, if you are someone who prefers leather, Galco does make some of the best in the industry. As always, let us know all of your thoughts about Galco and the Thunderclap Belt Holster in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.
