    Need a shoulder holster for a J-Frame.

    I have a S&W 642 coming in a few days and need to go on ahead and order a shoulder holster for the little fella'.

    I am interested only in horizontal or a "butt-down" type of holsters as I feel with a vertical position it would take slightly longer to deploy.

    So far what has interested me is the Galco Classic Lite:



    and as recommended in another thread, the K.L. Null SKR:



    Both are well under $100 as well, any suggestions on these or other holsters for the J-Frame appreciated!

    I prefer High Noon Undertaker shoulder holsters. They are horizontal, work great and are comfortable without costing a fortune.

    You won't find a better or more well thought out shoulder rig for J frames than the Null rig.

    It works great and you can draw with either hand.

    Blackhawk offers a horizontal shoulder rig that attaches to their Serpa platform. Good retention with no snaps.

    Take advantage of having a small revolver, by using the Bern-Martin invented upside down shoulder holsters. Light, comfortable, concealable, no belt needed, quick to don or doff. eBay is your best source for the original, or the elastic versions that all makers had in the seventies, and the reinterpretation of the BM by Bianchi called the 9R, of which there is a version that covers the hammer spur. Autos have never been successfully carried this way, though Seventrees did his best in the 60s because of the attention the 007 films brought to the issue of no BMs for the PPK. I carried a 44 Bulldog in the 9R and can say it is 100% secure, unlike the elastic versions. Horizontals are really best suited to the autos.

    Ps: from what I know of thermoformable plastics, which is a lot, the Null looks to be made from HDPE, which is milk bottle plastic .

    Gah I'm still undecided,

    Rednichols I wish they still made that Bianchi copy...that looks like it would fit the bill but I can only find one in decent shape and I don't really feel like spending that cash on something that's been used for how many ever years.

    Still not 100% sold on anything but thanks for the suggestions so far!

    I carries a 4" S&W 66 in an upside down Safariland SH for many years, LOVED that set up, real easy to get at under a buttoned up untucked shirt.
