    Buying a Left Hand Alessi just to try out carrying in a shoulder holster is a bit expensive.
    He is worried that if he does not like carrying in a shoulder holster that he'll not be able to resell a left handed shoulder rig for very much money...if at all.

    I suggested the Allessi because it sells for less than many high dollar shoulder rigs, it has a big enough following to resell for 80%+ of it's value if it is not desired and because it is truely great. There are $40 shoulder rigs, but they won't tell you if you would like an Allessi rig. I can tell you that what makes many cheaper holsters cheaper is that somebody didn't address the issues that come with the design like swinging, quickness of draw, ease of reholstering, weight of the gun rotating the holster so it pinches your neck, etc. The Allessi, once adjusted feels very good. . .as you probably know.

    I guess, even if I were a lefty, I would want to try an Allessi or a Milt Sparks holster, because they have such a waiting list that unless you got it for a jennings 22, it will be easy to sell for top dollar. The Unckle Mike's will probably be worth $5 at you next garage sale.

    Just one man's opinion!

    "Also just how does it change over for a lefty there pics on site arent the best"

    I believe that all you'd have to do is remove the velcroed-in thumb break and swap sides. I have removed the mag carrier and used them to carry 2 guns at once. (I have 3 or 4 Uncle Mike's shoulder rigs for different guns.)

    I just removed the holster from one, reversed the thumb break, and attached it where the mag carrier went on the other holster. I can do the same thing with my leather rig. In fact, I carried 2 guns that way last weekend.

    Good luck!

    Try a Null Holster. KLNULL. he can make you one for either hand for the same. I got a SMZ for my Ruger and works great.

    Galco makes a super nice shoulder holster with 2/mag holder on other side . The holster can be used ambidexterous and carries the gun vertically. It's not exactly cheap but it is sure a classy rig. Same one used a lot by forces in Iraq

    In early carry days I used a Bianchi X-15 a lot for my P95 - it also suits my BHP very well. In fact tho not tried it probably the SIG would sit well.

    For me it is a winter option primarily and like as not I'll use it again. I am sure they make a left handed version. What I like most is the front break and prefer a vertical anyways. I found draw was super slick. GREAT for when driving BTW - nothing much to beat it.

    I may have an old pic somewhere - hang on -

    OK here ya go - very old pic and not like my normal stuff but this is the rig. I actually bought another used to take a slightly smaller piece tho not used it much (yeah - the ''holster box'' , right!).

    I like the elastic back strap as against an ''X'' cross over but - downside is, the strap elastic where it goes over high near neck, tends to ride up a bit too much. Otherwise - very comfortable rig. Oh and - it has a good lower loop with popper to go round belt, so when bending over there is no embarrasment LOL!

    Fobus offers a shoulder holster system that works with their roto holsters I believe.

    https://secure.fobusholster.com/cata...x.php?cPath=27

    The same roto holster would work with their tactical thigh rig and vehicle mount as well as the vehicle mount. If you decide you don't like the shoulder harness you could sell it use the holsters for other applications.
