Classic Lite
Waited a while before trying the shoulder method of carry. I'm 81 y.o. I first purchased the Lite for my S&W 642 which I customarily carried in a pocket holster. This holster is more comfortable and I can wear it from wake up to wake down.
It makes the firearms more accessible in seated positions (cars, restaurants et.) Giving it 5 stars as I'm very happy with it. Also bought a Jackass rig for my G-19 and a VHS for my G-17 that has a Trijicon RMR on it. Love those two also. No more belt rigs for me, and I do shoot CQC drills with a group every week. Been reloading everything except rimfire since 1963.

Lite and Quality
Set up is easy and fit to pistol is gentle enough for easy draw. Fits well over or under a shirt, and should be good for all seasons of the year. I bought it for a Springfield EMP 9mm, and it even works well for this slightly undersized office type 3” barrel.

My review

Gun leather is a serious issue for me! It speaks to the protection of the weapon carried, as well as accessibility. Fit and function cannot be overlooked.

I don't often write reviews for anything. I prefer to purchase or use the things that work for me. I guess I understand that just because I like something does not mean that that particular thing is functional or suitable for everyone.

However, in this case, I think I am qualified to make the following statements, and here are some reasons for my observations related to my qualifications.

I am a retired Houston Police Department Investigator. I served the city of Houston for 28 years, six months, and nine days. Although I wore many hats, the most related to this review was as a "Tactical Firearms Instructor, Narcotics(undercover), and Detective.

In executing my duties, I had to teach and conduct my duties while being armed and that weapon not being visible to the public.

For those of you who have lived in that climate, you know that a change in attire can occur on the same day! The Galco "Miami Classic" gave me incredible flexibility in carrying and comfort. I carried my weapon in the original for nearly half of my time on the department.

Chasing bad guys, fighting them, and taking them into custody while wearing the Classic was a piece of cake! I even wore it under "Hoodies" when the weather turned cooler, still hidden and accessible.

I have worn a lot of gun leather over the years, in the military, as a police officer, and now civilian. I was so sold on this particular style that this is the third set purchased, one for my then-wife and two for me. The last one, the less expensive model that has the rough leather, is for my full-size "Kimber" Custom II in 10mm. Again, the harness distributes the weight in just the right places, no carry fatigue here!

I do recommend treating all gun leather to be made with a leather treatment. Although I know some people are not so inclined, I guess that is what makes "Horse Racing."

I also recommend that while doing "Dryfire," which means safety, removing all live ammo from the room where dryfire is being conducted, you wear your "Miami Classic" to practice your draw, to develop some practice.

If you are new to this type of holster, you will need a modicum of familiarity. For your safety and the safety of those around you. Learning not to "Laser or Paint" your arm as you draw and reholster. Keep your finger off the trigger during that process!

In conclusion, for years of use on my older "Classics" in all kinds of weather and attire, your new Classic should provide years of service and become an "heirloom" for generations to come. So, on a scale from 1 to 10... I give it a solid 9.5. But, of course, nothing is perfect, so that is the best I can do.

Oh... I almost forgot! The 2.0 is much more affordable than the originals that I had previously purchased two additional ones over the years. Thanks guys!
