    Thumbs up Alessi 'Bodyguard Shoulder Rig'

    Most of you know by now, I really dig Brommeland Gunleather. So, on a lark, I called Gary and asked him who's shoulder holster he recommends being as he doesnt make one. I told him my Miami rig from Galco was cutting into my traps. Gary immediately responded "Alessi, you *******". Ok, I get the point. I had the opportunitiy to score one locally at a very good price, so I did.
    Wow!! When it arrived, I spent 45mins just 'fondling it'. The workmanship is impeccable. The boning and stitching beautiful. Even without the pull thru snap retention system, the holster would have held this gun for years. I had never tried a 'pull thru' snap before. Never going back to a thumbstrap style shoulder rig. Just grip the pistol, and pull. But it aint coming out till you want it to. TRUST ME on this. The whole rig is so well thougt out and designed. The shoulder straps are cut wide, and on rings at the pivot points to let stuff shift with you, not into you. And light, this thing uses no more leather than absolutly necessary, and its noticable in the weight. The way the harness distributes the weight of the gun and mags makes this a very 'wearable' rig. The double mag pouch holds the mags with enough friction that after the strap is released, the mags dont just drop free. But not so tight as to make drawing them difficult.
    Again, thanks to Lou Alessi for providing such a quality item. And thanks to Gary B for the recommendation.

    Smart Choice Dan!
    Lou Alessi makes an extremely fine shoulder holster.
    Most of my shoulder holsters are by Lou.
    His "pull through" feature AKA "No Retention Strap To Fiddle With" is fantastic!
    A lot of Pennsylvania detectives carry in Alessi shoulder rigs.
