First Look: Galco Holsters for Taurus 856

posted on July 2, 2020

Taurus has recently added a new revolver to its extensive line of handguns, the 856. The 856 is DA/SA revolver in .38 Spl. that has a 2-inch barrel that is optimized for on-body or off-body carry. Galco is introducing multiple holster options for the new Taurus 856 revolver to help make sure your gun will be there when you need it the most.

Outside the waistband (OWB) holsters are a popular option for daily carry. Galco has OWB belt holster options for the 865 which include its professional-grade Concealable and Hornet holsters, along with the popularly priced Wraith holster. Additionally, ankle holsters include the Ankle Lite and Cop Ankle Band.

For even more discreet carry, there are also Inside the Waistband (IWB) holsters for the 856 available from Galco, including its bestselling Stow-N-Go and Tuck-N-Go 2.0 holsters, as well as the Waistband and WalkAbout 2.0 holsters. In addition, there is the versatile Underwraps 2.0 belly band which allows you to carry your pistol in almost any situation.

Smaller .38 Spl. revolvers like the Taurus 856 are a good choice for pocket carry, and some of Galco’s more popular pocket holsters like the Pocket Protector and new StukOn-U will work well with this new revolver from Taurus. Small revolvers are also a good choice for fanny pack or waistpack carry, so Galco’s popular FasTrax PAC waistpack is a good choice for the 856, and it also comes in three different color and material combinations.

Galco also offers off-body carry options, such as women’s holster handbags for the Taurus 856 which have quick-access compartments that allow you to easily and quickly access your gun, along with day planners and ammunition carriers for even more options.
