    The issue with your Mag pouch isnít a lack of leather, its shrinkage due to wet molding. It is in the nature for leather to shrink as it dries. Sometimes it shrinks a little and sometimes it shrinks a lot. This varies from holster to holster. Similar directions can be found on most leather holster manufacturerís websites.

    You are correct that we do not include break in directions in the current catalog. The catalog does however refer the customer to the product information guide included in every holster. It also tells you how to obtain a new one. Break in directions are also included on the website.

    The reason that I asked you to PM me for the call tag was for your security, not ours. I will not post your address on this forum. I welcome you to so and I will write the RA accordingly (we need the address to be able to ship the item back to you). I would be happy to send a call tag as well. Your options for receipt are fax, email or snail mail. I will of course need the corresponding information.

    Please make an identifiable mark on your mag pouch prior to returning it. I recommend initials on the interior surface. I donít want there to be any confusion that the mag pouch we return is the same one that you send in.
    Sounds like a very reasonable offer to me. I wonder if Shampi kicks his dog as well. Or maybe just a disgruntled union worker. Sound like Shampi owes an apology.

    All that I can say about this thread is that it caused me to buy another Galco holster today. I had a choice between several (since this one will take a month to get here), but I chose the Galco due to the responses by the company here.

    My problem was/is with a company, not an individual (Bill). I expressed my issues and problems. You and G50AE on the other hand wish to attack me, trying to make it personal. No, I do not kick dogs - I shoot them (wild and ferel), and try to ignore those who can not address an issue so they attack the messenger.

    In an edit, I will add, that it does seem Bill is trying to extend a hand to solve my issues. I will take him up on his offer - AND SEE! If he/the company makes it right, I will post just that and give credit. It is just frustrating to me to have two problems/issues with an established national company and pay prices that most consider high, and have to solve "my" problem with Glad bags. Stop and think about that.

  6. Thanks for those kind words. I'm going to order another Galco holster Myself. Sounds like Galco is bending over backwards. By the way I own dogs and do not kick them or shoot them.

I even rubbed in your Draw-Eze lube to no effect. It was obvious and clear that the problem was excessive leather under the swivels, square cut so that the swivels would strike a high point and move no further. This leather SHOULD HAVE BEEN CUT ROUNDED so to allow the swivels move with much greater rotation. Your email response left me with an all too typical response of "you are hired to save the company money; so do so." You state to keep in mind the swivel only rotates a "few" degrees - but your sales catalog only speaks of freedom of movement. Legally, I guess 5 - 8 (estimate) degrees may qualify for freedom, but it does not to those of us pilgrams out here.

    As the the magazine/flashlight holder, I went so far as to remove the tension screws completely, with very little relief. As I read your advice about placing a freezer bag over the light, for some reason I was reading, "go to your nightstand, take out three lubricated condoms and stretch them over the flashlight; force it into the leather recepticle......" Why is your advice not published in your catalog?

    No, Bill, at this point, having problems with two of your products, and not being as stupid as Obama, you are still putting up a defense.

    I have already "solved" the problem with the lack of movement in your swivels (by cutting off the excess leather), but I can not solve a lack of leather with the magazine/light holder. Before everyone on this site (I WILL NOT SEND YOU A PRIVATE MESSAGE), I want you to issue me a RA for either a unit that has been tested and will work; or a refund (I have the invoice). Frankly, to tell me/us, after the sale, to bag up my light, force it in and wait, tells me your products are not ready for public use. I long for the former Jackass Leather Company.
    The plastic bag break-in is actually recommended by many companies who make leather holsters, it's not a BS recommendation. I just bought a holster for my G23 and it was a tight fit, I left the gun (no bag though) in overnight and it's much better.

    Couple of things to realize - leather is a natural product and as has been pointed out, is subject to variations. You can make one holster one day that fits perfectly and another then next that is too tight and has to have a break in period.

    Also, I find your comments about the design defects of Galco's product a bit dubious. First, Galco has been doing what they do for how long? Id bet money that they have a pretty good idea of what they are doing. Second, you don't offer any other documentation about the defect except your testimony, which really amounts to nothing at this point, especially since your representing yourself so well here. Perhaps pictures, or better video would help us, and Galco, understand what the issue is.

    I might also suggest that you look at Kydex holsters, being plastic they don't require break-in which may be a bit simpler for you.

    Finally, whatever might have happened before this thread, it's clear that Galco is trying to work with you. You might try the same.

    Oh? In my 60 years on this earth I have never heard of such a thing, which, of course, does not mean it isn't true. Please identify which companies recommend this. A company/catalog quote would be great, as I am willing to learn.

    Does it matter who reccomends it if it works?

    And make sure it's a black sock because that looks more "tactical".
