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.

Best holster in 30 yrs
I was amazed at the quality, fit and finish of my Thunderclap holster. I have a couple of Standard Mfg 5" 1911's and I ordered the Colt 5" 1911 holster for a perfect fit. It really is a work of art better than any of at least 50 leather holsters I have purchased in over 30yrs of CCW a full size 1911. If I have a BBQ to showcase my setup I will leave the pistol in the car so as not detract the well deserved attention from my holster.

Thunderclap holster
I ordered a new thunderclap for my 5 inch Wilson Combat 45 , when it arrived the fit was perfect and the finish on the holster was excellent . I don't what they put on the leather but I tried a small area on the back and it was very scratch resistant and looks great
