The Honor Guard LE was meant to serve the law-enforcement community with a gun that was comfortable to tuck inside the waistband. The $60 Galco GunLeather KingTuk Air helps by providing ventilated low-profile IWB carry.
We found the clothlike grip texture on the Honor Guard receiver to be attractive and highly effective.
The new LE Long Slide top end (rear) offers a smooth profile rather than an accessory rail for more comfortable inside-the-waistband carry. The shorter top end graces the SC sub-compact models, and both units utilize the same recoil assembly. Barrel lengths are 3.2 inches and 3.8 inches, respectively.
