    chest rig

    Looking for a chest rig to concealed carry my 1911. I am a smaller guy, 5'8" and 150 lbs. A shoulder rig prints too much. Any ideas for something with maybe slight cant to it for easier draw? Will be carrying under a jacket, coat, or zip up sweatshirt. Googled some options and not seeing anything i think would work. Any ideas would help. Thanks. Kyle.

    A friend of mine wears the Galco Belly Band...a little above and on the side of the belly and it really doesn't print at all with a loose shirt.

    I have a chest sheath for my .357 sig converted GLOCK G24 (coyote pistol) to use when I ride my 4 Wheeler. It might work as a concealed holter.

    Chest rig or shoulder holster? I am 6'1 205 and have a hard time with printing with my G23 in a shoulder hoster unless I'm wearing a coat. Thats why it stays in the holster drawer until it gets cold out.

    Found this with a quick search - not sure if they still exist, but the picture looks like what you're looking for. Don't think it's leather though... Hill People Gear | Home

    Wow thanks for all the help guys. I work alot so i dont have time to shop online for all this especially with a 7 month pregnant wife. You guys are awesome. Really like the simply rugged holter with chest puller harness too, Woodlark. And its leather. I guess its spend $75 for what works or $120 for what i want. Hmm....

    Second on Simply Rugged. You can convert the rig to IWB and OWB as well.

    What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?

    Your bigger than my son-in-law and both girls. They have scaled a firarm to the needs . How are you going to carry when temps warm to the 90* range. Maybe the smart thing to do is find a firearm you can CC in one location year round. Maybe a small 1911 , kahr in 9mm 40 or 45 or smaller 9mm cartidge from KT with the 10 to 12 shot p11 or xd or m&p. or or . The chest rig sounds like a temp fix.

    I have other firearms more suited for summer carry. Ruger lcp with a pocket holster is my favorite in the summer when we are all down to shorts and tshirts. Hornady critical defense hollowpoints is my round of choice, a mean little round for a .380 with practice and well placed shots. Unfortunately with the holiday season coming, there has been an increase in muggings and robberies, armed none the less. And with the colder months upon us, it gives me the opportunity to carry something a little bigger. I've not carried my 1911 in the past so I am looking for ways to make it work. The way i carry and what i carry changes through out the year. The .380 in the summer when penetration through heavy clothing is not needed and a light firearm is preferred and a 9mm in the winter when thuggs are more covered up. I am now just upping the anti to the 1911 in .45 acp because i now have two people in my life to protect, my wife and my unborn son. So i thank you for the idea but due to limited funds, i don't have the luxury to go out and buy a new firearm for $400-600. Happy holidays to you sir.

    I am not Ghost Tracker, but yes, the Survival Sheath Systems rigs are quiet.
