Gear Review: Galco Stow-N-Go Inside The Pant Holster

I’ve been a big fan of appendix carry in a belly band since I began concealing some four years ago. I found it to be the most comfortable and efficient way to hide my Springfield XD-Sub compact in the clothes I normally wear (mostly jeans and T-shirts). Now that it’s a little cooler, I’ve been wearing sweaters, or at […]
