Kimber’s unexpected introduction of a new line of revolvers a few years ago brought new respect to the revolver as a concealed carry firearm. The K6 series of revolvers were a completely new product line for Kimber, and have proven themselves to be some of the best-made revolvers of the modern era.

A defensive firearm needs to be near you in order to be effective, though, which is why Galco Holsters is introducing its trusted Combat Master belt holster for the Kimber K6s 2-inch revolver.

The Combat Master is a professional-grade belt holster that is constructed from the top 2 percent of premium steerhide available in America. The hide is hand-molded by Galco’s experienced craftsmen to fit specific handguns like the K6s, and this process gives the Combat Master excellent retention properties as well as a beautiful appearance.

Beauty is only skin-deep, however, especially in a holster designed for concealment. The Combat Master has a traditional high-riding pancake-style design that places the belt slots on either side of the holster, which pulls the handgun tight to the body and helps conceal defensive handguns under almost any concealment layer. The design of the Combat Master also features an open top with firing grip accessibility for speed, as time is always in short supply in defensive situations. 

The Combat Master’s covered trigger helps ensure safe carry, and the double-stitched seams on the holster enhance durability. All of this, along with Galco’s reputation for quality, make the Combat Master one of the longest-lasting holsters money can buy. Finally, the Combat Master’s twin belt slots can fit belts up to 1¾ inches wide, helping it blend well with current clothing styles, making sure your concealed carry gun is actually concealed from view.

The Combat Master for the Kimber K6s revolver is available in black or tan and has an MSRP of $99. More information on this holster and other products from Galco is available at
