It is typically better to always carry concealed. However, there are times when hanging a holster on the belt for the world to see is completely acceptable. For those times, consider the Galco Phoenix.

Galco designed this holster for sportsmen and women. Because of this, users can strap the Phoenix for strong-side or crossdraw carry and head out into the wilds. The Phoenix carries large-frame revolvers and semi-autos close as hand in case of attack, be it two-legged or four-legged. However, the Phoenix is good looking enough for open carry, particularly when paired with Western attire.

Galco contructed the Phoenix from premium saddle leather. It’s tanned leather and white stitching provide a look that dates back to the days of old. However, they also included a silicone-suede lining to protect guns from wear, which brings the holster into the modern world.

Additionally, the Phoenix features stitched sight rails to protect both leather and sights. It also comes with a reinforced thumb break with covered snap for security and a swift draw. Even better the tension screw adjustment allows for a custom fit for handguns. The tension allows users to determine the strength of the holster’s hold on the gun. Some people prefer having to pull hard in their draw, while others want the gun to glide out easily.

Made for semiautomatic pistols and double-action revolvers, the Phoenix fits a wide variety of popular handguns. Especially, models popular for carrying out in the bush. The Phoenix fits belts up to 1 3/4 inches in width, which Galco can also provide.
