I have an Alessi CQC-S that I carried an STI Ranger in for quite a long time. It was the best OWB holster i'd ever worn, hands down. I wanted something similar to carry my S&W Shield 45 but did not want the wait time for the Alessi. I ordered the Galco SSS and mag carrier. I could not be happier. The fit and finish is excellent. It carries close and conceals as well as my IWB holsters without the discomfort. The older I get, the less I like to carry IWB and this is a perfect compromise. With the snaps it also offers easy on and off like a paddle but the security of a belt-through design. This will be my go to holster for years to come. Thanks Galco!
