Shoulder Holster Review: Galco Classic Lite for the Glock 43
This horizontal carry rig is a slightly enhanced Galco Classic Lite system for the Glock 43. As shown, it has an upgraded holster (a separate component purchase; it's the same holster that comes standard with Galco's Miami Classic II system for the Glock 43) and it also has the component purchase tie-downs on both the gun-side and the ammo / offside (tie-downs do not come standard on any Galco system; they are nice options to have but are not always essential).
The Del Fatti ammo pouch that is on the strap holds a 5-round speed strip reload for the 5-round J-frame revolver that is pictured in the Kramer pocket holster. The fully loaded Glock-43 holds a respectable 7-rounds and there is a 6-round mag reload in the standard Galco Classic Lite holder.
For routine daily carry (even on the long days) everything shown above works out (for me) to be a very decent grab-and-go concealed carry combination.
Above is the utility grade holster that comes with the Classic Lite rig; it is a no-frills durable cut of leather with the same hardware and stitching as on the more elegant Galco offerings. It offers all of what a shoulder holster requires, except the sexiness of the wet formed polished leather.
Above is the component holster I chose to go with. It's an extravagance that I do not regret.
