Perfectly mated to everyday carry guns or elegant special-occasion pistols, the Thunderclap™ offers a unique set of features and best-quality construction methods. The Thunderclap is the very first holster in Galco’s Masterbilt™ series of best-quality, premier-grade holsters.

The Masterbilt holster series combines our finest-quality premium leathers with the skills of our most experienced craftsmen. The Masterbilt series is the pinnacle of leather holster construction, unrivaled by anything on the market. Masterbilt holsters get their final drying on a last, a solid form around which the holster is dried. They’re ready to go – right from Galco – with little or no break-in required. With detailed hand molding and full-grain leather lining, Masterbilt holsters are not only beautiful, but supremely functional.

Constructed of our finest, fully-lined premium steerhide, the Thunderclap features detailed hand-molding for both secure retention and a beautiful appearance. The smooth leather lining provides increased tactile feedback on the draw while easing wear on more-delicate handgun finishes. The refinement of leather lining is not only practical – it also enhances the overall look and feel of a hand-crafted premium holster.

The Thunderclap’s near-neutral (vertical) cant gives it the fastest, wrist-locked draw stroke, while the reinforced opening provides easy, one-handed return to the holster. Relieved at the base of the trigger guard, it allows a full firing grip in the holster. The metal-reinforced tunnel-style belt loop provides excellent rigidity during carry and on the draw, and the trailing belt slot aids with concealment – even with large defensive handguns. A molded sight rail prevents snags on the draw.

Equally at home concealed with an EDC pistol or worn openly with a barbeque gun, the Thunderclap is sure to impress friends – or help defeat enemies!

The Thunderclap fits belts up to 1 1/2” wide and is available in black or tan.

Perfect! Better than described!
I have a number of Galco holsters so I already trusted their quality. I bought the Thunderclap for a Sig P210 Carry Custom, which is a BBQ gun if there ever was one. I carry it regularly because life is too short to shoot ugly guns. That gun isn't listed, so I ordered a fit for a 4.5 1911. Fits perfectly. The leather finish is so beautiful I take it out now and then just to look at it.

Very satisfied again..
This is my 4th leather holster from Galco & I knew what to expect from them already and couldn't be happier w/ the Thunderclap & it's quality craftsmanship, functionality, reliability. Snug fit, smooth draw w/ my W/C 1911. The sight rail allows for quick draw & smooth holstering, keeping me confident. Sits high rise for excellent concealment, when teamed up with my Galco HD Instructors belt, it's the perfect CCW configuration. Thanks again Galco!
