    Fist Vertical Shoulder Holsters?

    Anybody use one?Seems like their holsters are quality.I am thinking of one for a G26.The retention system,at least from the description,looks good.I do not want a Miami Classic,tried one, did not like.I like leather holsters, so that excludes Uncle Mikes and others.The pictures I find of this holster system seem lacking so far as how they fit across the shoulders.Opinions?

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    #1. Fist makes quality holsters.
    #2. I have and still use shoulder rigs only when there is no other way to carry due to what I am wearing eg. tuxedo (no belt and light pants material).
    #3. I used a vertical only with large semi's like Gov't 1911 because they printed under my jacket in the horizontal position. I did not like the grip angle needed to draw.
    #4. For pistols like the G26 or Walther P99 (compact) or PPK I go with horizontal. At just over 6 inches they do not print under a jacket and the grip angle seems more natural when drawing. My first was a C clip (leather covered steel clip) by Bianchi. It was made for the PPK and held it firmly by the slide. You just pulled it free to draw. I wish I had one for my P99!!
    #5 Shoulder rigs, for me at least, always needed a lot of adjusting to get them to fit right and they were never the most comfortable way for me to carry except for the smaller compact pistols.

    I think the fit of this system depends a lot on the wearer's size, shape and how well they can tolerate the bra-strap pressure on their shoulders.

    Not much help, but It is just my experience with shoulder holsters.

    I have the Fist vertical holster for my Kimber Ultra CDP II (pistol now gone). I didn't wear it much, just on my Harley for cooler days.
    Good quality holster, I just didn't prefer the carry mode.
