    The Galco Miami Classic fits your budget.

    Best thing? You can look like Sonny Crockett on Miami Vice.

    Haha the cool factor is definitely a plus! Does the backstrap make that big of a difference?

    The Galco does not have the horizontal back strap. I have my Classic adjusted for the shortest adjustment up under my arm. It is snug enough that when I lean over the rig doesn't swing forward and I'm carrying heavy guns (Kimber 5" or G30)

    I am 6'1" and about 225 pounds

    Good to hear, I am close to your size, 6' 205lbs. Last question: I like the mag pouches on the miami classic, but I like the thicker straps for the miami classic II. Do the thicker straps make any significant difference?

    I have the Classic II which has the wider straps and horizontal mag carriers without snap covers. I have never worn the narrower strapped Jackass rig or the regular Classic. I'd think wider straps would spread out the weight and make for more comfortable carry. My Classic II is by far the most comfortable carry rig I own. I have Supertucks, MTACS, and a Tucker the Answer for my Kimber and G30. Driving on long trips is where a shoulder rig really shines.

    I bought the TAN version but it really sticks out if you OC. The black version is almost invisible on a black shirt if you desire to carry in that fashion. I do a little OC during warmer weather. It's great under any kind of clothing however, but if it's a sweatshirt obviously your draw really can't be accomplished easily.

    I'll probably go with the classic II in that case. As for the color, the tan is cool, but the black would go better with the clothes and my gun.

    You can go with the Classic II and order the vertical mag carrier separately as an addition if you really want it.

    It runs about 55 dollars from optics planet Then you'd have a Classic with the Classic II harness.

    Just thought of a better option . Buy the Classic and order a Classic II harness. They are interchangeable and the harness is about 35 bucks. 20 bucks cheaper
