    Does anybody use a Galco V-Hawk for full size or sub-compact Gloc?. I carry a 31 or 33. Pros and cons.

    I have used one for the last 6 months or so with both a Glock 17 and a S&W.
    I really can't see any cons for not owning one. I have been happy with it.

    I use one for my 19, and it is one of the best holsters I have for my Glock. They are a bit pricey, IMO. For a few dollars extra, you could get a VM2. The nice thing about the V-Hawk is there is no wait, and it is comfortable to boot.

    I don't have the Galco but I do have the DeSantis Mad Max. It is a copy of the VM2 and it is only $54 from Midway. I highly reccomend this holster. I carry my 1911s in it and have MTACs for Glocks and Sigs. For the price of the Galco, I'd just get the VM2.

    I looked at a V-Hawk in a store for my XD-45. I quickly put it back...it is an insanely bulky IWB holster. (But then I've been spoiled by my KyTac Braveheart.)

    One nice thing about the V-hawk, is you can get the steel clips from the King-Tuck and make it tuckable.

    It doesn't seem bulky to be compared to anything else of comparable size.

    Mine should be showing up here in a day or two for a Glock 19. I got mine to hold me over until I can find a VMII without the wait. It looks like a Galco replica of the VMII (my favorite) so we will see.

    I cannot agree with you here. I have a similar product to the KyTac Braveheart. I find the weight dist. is not optimal at all. The V-Hawk, while it may look bulky, actually fits quite nicely, distributes the weight evenly, and retention is good for an IWB holster. I will say though, that if I had the patience to wait for a VM2, I would get one of those instead, YMMV.

    Almost forgot... The Mad Max comes with both tuckable clips and leather loops.
