I'll let you compare:
I know wait times suck, but they are well worth it in the end.
If you order a custom holster, you have more input on the final result.
Whether it be color - for the makers that give you an option, some do, some don't
materials or trim - I have shark trim on the holsters in my pics
any specific needs you may have - I had a CTC on the P239 when the holster was made
belt loop size - see how big that Galco loop is, leaves room for unwanted movement
And you deal directly with the guy making the holster...
Both of the pictured holsters hold the gun close to the body.
The Garrity holster came pre-curved with an awesome body shield.
The K&D makes my 1911 feel even thinner.
You can find Galcos with shields and stuff, but there will not be an attention to detail like a custom maker.
Handmade details you can't get with a Galco or mass produced holster..
K&D also made my LCP OWB holster..
The LCP disappears in the holster with anything I wear.
But it is usually pocket carried.
Just to make it harder on you, here are a couple more guys that make a good holster..
