I SD carry mine in a Bianchi X-15 medium with an added retention strap for trips to Jurasic Park. This shoulder rig works better than getting spanked by a belt holster on the run. That way I can still carry the Kimber IWB for a BUG. The muzzle brake helps direct the flash out to the sides and creates a wall of flame, but the top ports make the gun kick straight back. I installed the included cast bullet muzzle brake which closed off the top ports. Now some of the recoil is absorbed when the gun rises over the head. The spin of my cast 440 grain slugs makes the 56 oz X frame twist almost 90 degrees as it pushes me back a step. I'm working on the fast follow up shot after I regain my balance, assume a stance, readjust my grip, find the sights through the tears, as soon as I get out of the hospital and take the air cast off my wrist. Until then it rides in a smartcarry.
