After more than a month of carrying the Grey Man modified Glock 19 pistol in the KingTuk holster from Galco Gunleather, I have decided to adjust it. Why? Because I want it to be a little bit better, that’s why. This particular holster has adjustable pins that allow me to change the depth of the holster’s ride on my belt. After a suitable amount of time “breaking in” the holster, I decided that I want the holster riding just a bit higher. So I took the time to change things up a bit. There’s no sense in settling for an uncomfortable holster.
There are a couple things to think about when working on your holster: Make sure you have a screwdriver that fits the screw slot precisely. I use a Wheeler gunsmithing screwdriver kit and select a blade of the perfect width. There should be no wiggle between the blade and the edges of the screw channel. Also, put some sort of thread-locking compound on the screws when you are done. You don’t want the screws coming loose at the most inopportune time. And know what type of locking compound you are using. Some of it is permanent.
Make It Right!
Never be satisfied with a holster that is just not “right.” If you are going to carry a gun every day, your gun and holster combination needs to be as comfortable as you can make it.
