"Lite"

For some of us CHL holders who have to frequently remove our firearms, a paddle holster works well.

I returned my FIST paddle holster (rather not talk about it), and bought a Galco "Lite".

Seems to work well enough, especially for the price.

Secure
Comfortable
Well made
High ride and canted
I can live with the thumb break

I'll report back after carrying with it a while.

Why a thumb break holster?

Why a thumb break holster?

Cause that's the only way they offered it.

Besides, with a 1911 my thumb goes there automatically.

I can live with it or hack it off.

I also like the paddles I use em for both magazine and weapon I use the Safariland. Nice paddle for the price. I hope you enjoy yours even though it may be a differant brand the paddle concept is a well thought out one imo.
