    Galco jackass rig opinions?

    I'm considering a galco jackass rig for colt officers acp and was wondering if anyone here carries in one of these shoulder rigs? Do they conceal well and do you think they would print with such a small light gun like the officers acp? Is this a comfortable shoulder rig to wear once properly adjusted? How does it compare to say a Miami classic?,doesn't the jackass rig have a slightly angled cant to it to prevent printing of the gun's muzzle? Last thing is could those here who own and like these rigs post a pic of it being worn so I can get an idea how the holsters rides? thanks.

    I have one that I favored for use with a 4" alloy frame 1911. It was pleasant to say the least. I have no issues carrying with it again come winter time...wait, it is winter time... OK, I have no issues using it when it gets colder than normal.

    I don't think I would want to use it for too long with a Combat Commander or 5" Steel Gov't.

    I don't think you'll have any issues concealing an Officers 1911 in it.

    The Miami Classic has a better draw IMHO, but the Jackass does better hiding larger guns IMHO. With the officers being smaller, you could probably go either way.

    Don't know what they are like now, and never used one. But I do know that a few years ago they were considered "state of the art" by a lot of law enforcement agencies.

    Even tied down they still flop around. You have to leave your cover garment or coat on all the time. With an IWB, a baggy t-shirt, sweatshirt, or untucked flannel covers everything.

    I carry a Glock 19 under a button up shirt every day, it will take several days to get it adjusted the way you feel comfortable. I like mine close up under my arm so it doesn't flop, and slightly forward.

    I take off the middle 3 buttons and sew them onto one side of velcro, and sew the other side to where the button was sewed. To draw use off hand to open shirt, reach in and draw

    I love mine, go ahead and get it.
