Galco introduced two new holsters for 2017: the Ironhide holster and the Wraith 2 holster.

The new Ironhide belt holster is based on the company's popular WheelGunner design, which was originally made only for revolvers. Now, the company has reworked the design in order to accommodate semi-automatic pistols.

The holster uses a belt-slide system that allows it to be used in strong-side or crossdraw carry. The holster is fully ambidextrous and can be carried in four different positions along the belt by unsnapping the holster from the belt slide, moving the slide to a different location and then reattaching the holster. The pistol is secured in the holster with a combination of molding and a retention strap with a polymer tab. The strap accommodates hammer-down carry and cocked-and-locked carry on a 1911.

The Ironhide is available in tan and fits belts up to 1.75 inches wide. The suggested retail price is $76.95.

Galco also unveiled its Wraith 2 convertible holster, which features a design based on the company's original Wraith holster. The new Wraith 2 combines the designs of the Paddle Lite and BlakGuard models to create a concealable multipurpose holster.

The holster is constructed using a mixture of steer hide and injection-molded plastic and uses a trench-style sight rail that accommodates most suppressor sights on the market today. The holster also features a thumb-break retention strap and a cutout that leaves room for carry-style optics.

The holster gives users added versatility with its two attachment methods: an adjustable belt slot and a paddle, which are both easily interchangeable. The only tool necessary to switch between the two is a flat-head screwdriver.

The new Wraith 2 convertible holster fits belts up to 1.75 inches wide and retails at a suggested price of $49.95.

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus

In retrospect, Smith & Wesson had nobody to blame for the situation but themselves. The company didn’t invent the subcompact, lightweight, single-stack nine, of course. Walther and Beretta had preceded the original Shield to market by a few years with the PPS and the Nano, respectively, and Kahr had more or less created the niche back in the 1990s.
