    Galco Classic Lite.

    Should probably go under the holster and carry options section of the forum.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Cool

    If it's uncomfortable, you're inclined to leave it at home.

    An instructor I know says that everyone has a shoulder holster in the box/drawer of no longer used/seldom used holster.

    Very hard to do the VA-tuck. Maybe if we get the restaurant ban removed I might dig mine out.

    as a guy that wears one several days a week. i would get the galco miami classic. you could go with a cheaper shoulder holster, but you get what you pay for,,,cheap.

    I have always liked them! Still, I feel they are very much dependent on the environment you live in with a very limited dress code.

    You get used to it after a while.
    But, initially (and even if you are in good, overall, physical condition) you'll be placing some weight on an area of the body that normally never receives any continuous weight.
    After a few weeks you'll be able to carry a full size & full weight firearm all day without any "pain & suffering."

    Going by your name of bikerboy would I be correct to assume your wanting something to wear while riding? If so I believe a good shoulder holster would be the correct choice.

    I truly love shoulder rigs, but FL is to warm for it!

    I used to conceal with a shoulder holster way back when. I don't remember the holster manufacturer but it had tie loops that went on my belt that had a section of elastic. It was a great holster and very comfortable. I carried a 4 inch 357 mag under a biker vest.

    Safariland used the elastic, I still have the one I used for my Colt Cobra, its the upside down holster that everyone saw in 'bullet'
