    Comfortable shoulder holster. Alessi. Nice wide & soft harness leather & w/ the bodyguard pull through snap series...no retaining strap. A nice feature that really works well.

    QkShooter:

    No retaining strap? My buddies say Sam Andrews makes a nice Shoulder Rig, with a Back Strap not found on most Rigs. My M9 is heavy. Want a balance so my Trap muscles don't ache. Please advise an old guy back in the game. - Thanks

    My little Walther PPK/S ... ? Galco II comes to mind. Smaller and less cumbersome.

    Please advise.

    Thanks Again.

    Pull through snap in the trigger guard. Just grab the gun & you're good to go. It's quite safe since it's impossible for the firearm to be inserted into the holster far enough for the trigger to contact the snap.
    Re-holstering is a tiny bit of a pain in the ass until you get used to it. But, how many times during an average carry day do you re-holster? Hopefully not many.

    Galco "Executive" for the Walther or Galco "Miami Classic II" for the 92 if you like the horizontal type.

    My M9 is heavy ( 92FS ) ... That said, will the Galco II work best ?

    Fanny Packs: Galco makes a good one.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have the Alessi. Love it. Fits very comfortably, has some adjustment for your shoulder width and holds a spare mag on the opposite side. This is my set up when wearing my tux. I wouldn't run a marathon in it but it's pretty snug and I can play a 2 hour violin gig wearing it.

    The shoulder holster I've actually worn most is the Bianchi X-15 model No. 12361, used with both a 4-inch Smith & Wesson K-Frame and for a Colt full-sized 1911. It is effective beneath suit coats in an office environment and I've begun employing it again occasionally in recent years. This holster is over 30 years old. The elastic in the secondary extension strap is still serviceable and hasn't deteriorated with age. Both the 4-inch Smith & Wesson K-Frame and the Colt 1911 are perfectly retained by this holster and draw is smooth. The holster is comfortable to live in for hours on end when using handguns of this size. I have also used this holster in wintertime beneath hunting coats and also when using chest waders and it keeps a handgun protected from the elements and available.

    I have other shoulder holsters for a 6-inch Colt Python and for a 2-inch J-Frame Smith & Wesson. Neither of these are often used. The Python is a chore for all day carry and the holster is bulky enough to make the suit coat appear misshapen. I'm just not going to carry a 2-inch J-Frame in a shoulder holster when I can fit a 4-inch K-Frame in the same spot.

    Galco Miami Classic is the best in my book. i used one for 22 plus years.
