Hi, I’m Trevor and I’m here with Mike from Galco. When you think premium leather holsters,
Galco is the first name the comes to mind. They’ve always been out
there making good stuff and every year they continue to bring out some really
cool holsters. So, Mike, you got some new products coming out. Tell me a little about them. We do Trevor, you know, you
mentioned gun leather and it’s kind of funny that our new introductions this year are actually
Kydex and thermoplastic. It’s ever expanding. Exactly, well you know you’ve got
to stay current, that’s the thing. So, the big introduction this year is the
Double Time. This is a Kydex inside the waistband
holster, it’s got a raised sweat guard to protect the gun from your body
and your body from the gun. Adjustable tension unit so you can sort of
micro adjust the feel of the draw, it snaps on and off the belt here, but the
cool thing about this holster is that while it’s a very functional great
IWB holster, we also provide hardware so you can
switch it over to a pancake style belt holster, takes about three minutes to
switch it over but it’s a very very effective pancake style belt holster as well. So, for seventy dollars at retail, you
really get two holsters for the price of one. That’s great, you already have
that muscle memory, same fit, you know it’s ready to rock.
Yep, same fit, same angle, and just you know you can take into
account seasonal variations in your clothes how deeply you want to conceal the gun but again it’s one holster and it
comes with the hardware to convert it over. That’s great, great looking holster. What do we got here? This is our M6X, this is an
auto-locking holster and the way it works is that this hood here grabs onto the ejection
port of your hand gun and using a lever mechanism it locks the gun in and with some thumb pressure releases the
gun, so you can draw it. But without that thumb pressure the gun is locked in there,
it’s not going anywhere. It’s a natural position too. Coming down for the draw your thumb is already
right there. Exactly, as your hand falls into place for that combat grip you just naturally release that thumb lever,
draw the gun, go into action. Great, great. Nice design. Now this is, you’ve had the Hidden
Agenda around, but you changed up the finish of the leather I should say. Yeah, that’s right.
We’ve had the Hidden Agenda in our line for about, half a decade or so it’s a fully functional day planner that also conceals a pistol on the
inside pocket here and we’ve had it in standard leather for, like I said, for
a couple of years. But we thought we’d fancy it up, change it up a little bit so we’ve done it in this full alligator
finish, which is still a durable, a durable steer hide finish, but it gives the appearance of
alligator. Makes it a little bit more discreet, a little less gunny-looking.
I definitely wouldn’t think I’m carrying something in there. Looks good though.
You’ve had slings for a long time, a new logo on there. Yes.
Yeah, we’re kind of rebranding these a little bit. So you get this cool new
hunting logo with the elk on it and you’re going to actually see that
across a lot of our hunting line in the near future. I know a big seller for us and, you know,
for you guys too the new KingTuk holster, it has also been out
for a little bit, let’s walk over and see one of those. Great. Allright, so here’s a KingTuk, and show us
a little how that actually sits and works. Ok, it’s pretty simple actually, it’s an
inside the waistband holster it’s got a kydex holster pocket across
the front, and then a leather backing plate on the back. The leather backing
plate really adds a lot of comfort, you know, if you’ve ever worn a kydex
inside the waistband holster. Yeah, that hard plastic laying against
your body all day, it really can become a little bit
uncomfortable but this leather backing plate. It’s smooth
on the back and it really does increase the comfort, but it gives you the advantages
of kydex on the front because you know kydex is a little bit faster to
draw from and it’s very firm material. It stays open when you draw the gun, so that
it’s much easier to go back into the holster. This one is also a tuckable design, so
what you can do is tuck your shirt in under these belt loops so that the gun
stays completely concealed and all you can see on your belt, which runs right
through here, and all you’ll be able to see are these
metal clips. Kind of blend into the belt loops anyway. Exactly, and what you can also do if
you need even a little bit more concealability is, you can get these c-hooks,
and these fit on a one and a quarter inch belt. So, a
very non gun looking belt, and these offer, really, on a
black belt, an excellent level of discretion. You don’t even see it if you
don’t know what they wore, that’s great. The other cool thing about the KingTuk
that I should mention is that you can actually adjust these
clips up and down, because there are extra holes on the back of the holster. so you can very the cant and the angle as well. So you
can customize that fit right there. Exactly, you can customize how deeply it sits in your
pants and the angle at which it sits. It’s been a great great holster for us, it’s
done really well, extremely popular holster. We sell a lot of them and never take complaints on
then, so it’s a great design, great design. We’re very happy with it. I think we had a cartridge belt we wanted to take
a look at too. Yep, we have some hunting gear including our Culling Belt.
Great, let’s take a walk over that way. Great. Allright Mike, what do we got here? This is our new Culling Belt, and
what this is really oriented toward is african or australian type big game hunting, and by big game I mean
elephants, cape buffalo, the really really big animals. This is designed to hold twenty rounds
of your big, you’re really big boomers. .375 H&H. That’s what you’ve got in there right now.
Yeah, exactly, all the way on up to about .500 Nitro Express. So the really really big cartridges. It holds twenty of them, and they’re offset, because what
happens in African hunting is a lot of times you want to carry a soft point
cartridge on one side and a solid bullet on the other.
Depending on what type of game you’re going after at that
particular moment. So, again, I might carry soft points
on one side and solids on the other. We have three
different sizes so it fits hunters from, with waists from say thirty inches
up to about fifty inches, so, a great wide range of fit.
Fit me then, that’s good. We’ve also got a line of accessories
forthcoming that are all going to be built around this Culling Belt. What we’ve got over here, this is a
(pouch over here) yes, this is the first of the accessories. This is a case for a rangefinder or small
folding binoculars and what we expect to have in the future,
down the road a little bit, is maybe a flashlight carrier, knife sheathes,
things of that nature. That all fit into that sort of African
style of hunting. Just from looking at it just, it looks just pure quality, you can just tell,
the stitching, the leather, everything and it just it looks really top notch
quality so it is a good looking belt. Great looking belt. We worked
hard on it, we’re really proud of this product and it’s generated a great deal of interest here at the show.
That’s good to hear, like you said there’s a few more new things to take a look at, something else.
Yes, we have a couple of new things, we’ve got a new shotgun case
which I can show you right here actually. This is an extension of our line of field grade
rifle cases. We got rifle and shotgun cases for everything from a scoped hunting rifle to an
AR type rifle and this one is for breakdown shotgun. So
if you have an over/under or a side by side shotgun and you want to carry it in a small
case, you simply break it down and inside the case you have an acrylic fleece lining and a sleeve here where your barrels will go and it’ll take barrels up to about
thirty inches. And then of course the body of the
shotgun lays right here and then on the outside you’ve got a
pocket and it’s got loops inside for chokes and if you choose not to use that you
can store ammo or eye protection/ear protection.
If you’re really fancy extra triggers for your high-end shotgun and you’ve got a leather strap functions as a shoulder strap if
you run it this way or as a carrying handle if you run it that
way. Retail is very reasonable, about a hundred
thirty dollars at retail and (great looking case) yeah and it’s just a great durable case, it’s
a khaki cotton duck on the outside so it’s very moisture resistant as well.
So, it’s really really a great field carry case. That’s good to hear, I just love the fleece liner on
there, you know, you spent a lot of money on a gun you want to protect it. Absolutely, absolutely,
those over and under and side by side’s don’t come cheap. Allright, anything else right here?
Nope, this is about it for the new hunting gear. Got a lot of new products out there, a lot of
holsters, always look forward to seeing your booth. So Mike, thank you so much for taking a little time
with us. Thank you, I appreciate it Trevor.
