First Look: Galco Combat Master Holster for H&K VP9

posted on March 29, 2020

Galco Gunleather recently introduced its renowned Combat Master belt holster for the popular Heckler & Koch VP9 pistol. The VP9 is one of H&K’s most popular firearms, and it’s reliability and accuracy have made it a favorite with military and law enforcement as well as armed citizens.

Galco’s Combat Master is a belt holster constructed of the top 2 percent of premium steerhide available in America that is hand-molded by Galco’s experienced craftsmen to fit specific handguns. Trusted by professionals and armed citizens, the holster has excellent retention properties along with its beautiful appearance.

Beauty, however, is only skin-deep, especially in a holster that is designed for concealment. The traditional high-riding pancake-style design of the Combat Master places the holster’s belt slots on either side of the holster, which pulls the handgun tight to the body and makes a defensive handgun disappear, under even light clothing. The holster also features an open top with firing grip cutout for speed and accessibility.

The Combat Master’s twin belt slots fit belts up to 1¾ inches wide, helping it to blend in with current clothing styles. The holster covers the trigger of the H&K VP9, ensuring safe daily carry. The double-stitched seams enhance durability and makes the Combat Master one of the longest-lasting holsters on the market today.

Available in black or tan, the Combat Master has an MSRP of $99, and more information is available at
