When choosing a holster, many factors come into play. How securely it holds the firearm is important, as is how quickly the pistol can be drawn from the holster. Of lesser concern, but still important, is the ease with which the holster can be put on—the more time and effort needed to secure the holster to the belt, the less likely it is to be strapped on.

Enter the Galco Speed Paddle. Constructed of premium saddle leather and polymer belt-lock paddle, the Speed Paddle covers the trigger guard of your revolver and has a tension screw to hold it firmly. Safety and peace of mind, but the best part is the paddle designed to easily slip over a belt and stay put. A molded ridge holds the holster firmly in place, yet allows it to be removed without taking the belt off.

Available in either tan or black finish, the Speed Paddle is available for a number of revolvers and semi-automatics. Extending only a few inches below the belt, it is easy to conceal with a vest, sweater or similar cover garment. The open top allows for rapid presentation if needed, and the holster has a generous cut for the front sight. This model is designed for a 3-inch barrel and will work fine for 2.5-inch and even 2-inch-barreled models.

MSRP: $78.95. Available in left- or right-hand designs.
