    I find it amazing that just about everyday, I hear of a holster maker that I never heard of before. What a selection.

    Personally, I wouldn't buy them. I dont care for nylon holsters. Not good retention and hard to conceal. If it says "one holster does it all" , I'd look elsewhere. Spend the money on a good custom made holster. It'll last for many years , conceal well, and be comfortable.

    I have not tried one, but it looks rather unstable mounted on a belt. With out a ridged support platform , any holster will flop around. The multiple configurations tend to make me even less enthusiastic about the product.
    I would suggest asking who here has a similar or the same gun as you are looking to holster up, then see what everyone else uses/likes.

    That's kind of what I was thinking too. My top choice for shoulder carry right now is the Ross horizontal model at www.ccwsupply.biz. I like the support strap on the back. Plus it's about $50 less than the one at Andrews leather. I'm going to have to save up for quite awhile to get the Ross.

    If I had to save a while for the Ross then I'd save a little more for the Andrews. I've one on order and that will make 5 pieces of his work I own. If you can afford it, custom holster makers do provide a better product in general over production in my experience. Took me a number of years and many factory holsters I don't like to learn it but I understand that for some people maybe the production stuff works.

    That holster is not cheap and is pushing its way into the price range of a custom. Even if you can't afford a custom there are much better built affordable rigs out there.

    I do really like the look of the Andrews model. I may get a Crossbreed first, then save for an Andrews shoulder model.

    It looks like it does everything, but none of it well. I'd not buy a nylon holster.
