First Look: Galco Holsters for Kimber K6S 4-inch Revolver

posted on July 10, 2020

Galco is introducing new holster options for the Kimber K6S revolver with a 4-inch barrel.

Outside the waistband (OWB) options include the Combat Master, a professional-grade belt holster constructed of premium saddle leather and hand-molded by Galco’s experienced craftsmen. The Combat Master is a traditional high-riding pancake-style design that places belt slots on either side of the holster, pulling the handgun tight to the body and making your handgun disappear. The holster also features a covered trigger for safety and an open top that is easily accessible. MSRP for the Combat Master is $99, and it is available in either black or tan leather. 

Another OWB option for the K6S is the DAO, a versatile holster made from premium saddle leather. Created for the outdoorsman, it can be worn strong side or cross-draw at the user’s choice. The holster uses a traditional retention strap for simplicity and security in the field, and a tension screw adjustment gives a custom fit to your K6S. Available in black or tan, the DAO has an MSRP of $112.

The Phoenix belt holster is for outdoorsmen who prefer a high-quality OWB leather holster. The stitched sight rails protect both the leather of your holster and the sights of your gun. A reinforced thumb break retention strap secures the revolver in the brush while still offering a very swift draw, and twin tension screws adjust to give you a custom fit. Constructed of premium saddle leather in either black or tan along with protective silicone suede lining, the Phoenix has an MSRP of $159.

The Miami Classic II shoulder holster carries the K6S and two speedloaders horizontally, allowing for a fast and natural draw. The harness straps measure 1½ inches at the shoulders, distributing weight of your gun while still remaining concealable. The four-point harness pivots independently for superior comfort with almost every body size and shape. Made of premium saddle leather, the Miami Classic II is available in tan and has an MSRP of $249.

Galco also offers other options for the Kimber K6S, including the versatile Underwraps belly band, ammunition carriers and its new E-Z Loader cartridge strips. Please visit for more information on these or other products from Galco.

Review: Tisas PX-9 GEN3 Duty

It’s said that in life, one never gets a second chance to create a first impression. SDS Imports, the company that imports the Tisas firearms manufactured in Turkey, appears to have embraced that piece of wisdom, because I was extremely impressed from the moment I opened the box containing its new PX-9 GEN3 Duty 9 mm semi-automatic pistol. Except for some ammo, the box contained everything you need to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus In 30 Super Carry

Before we dive headfirst into the morass that is the 30 Super Carry debate, let’s start with something (slightly) less controversial: Smith & Wesson’s Shield Plus is a supremely good pistol. Building on the success of the standard Shield and updated M2.0 versions, the Shield Plus kept critical dimensions similar to allow most gear designed for the Shield to work for the Shield Plus.
