In 1969, Galco opened as a modest family business in Chicago, Ill. selling horsehide holsters. Since then, the company has risen to fame in two respects—as the number one holster company featured in Hollywood movies and TV shows and as a leading holster provider for military and law enforcement personnel. The Galco shoulder holster appeared in "Miami Vice," "Die Hard" and many other Hollywood productions. But don’t worry! Real heroes depend on Galco products as well. Servicemen and women rely on Galco holsters, particularly the shoulder holster. Galco provides holster bags, shoulder holsters, duty holsters and more to law enforcement officers as well. Hunters and citizens who CCW also can find an array of holsters.
