    Recommended shoulder holster?

    Hi all,
    I'm pretty muich sold on the C-Tac for my IWB, I think it will come in quite useful and everyuthing I read on hear makes me think iot's the best option.
    That being said, I would also like to have a shoulder harness for times when I am constantly sitting or driving, especially my Harley. I think it would just HAVE to more comfortable to have only one pocket pistol, the one God gave me, in my pants when I am driving for hours on end. The shoulder rig would fit that bill nicely I believe.
    Besides, 2 toys are always better than one.
    I was thinking of nylon on this rig, but would welcome any input on leather models as well. Who makes the best product out there? I'll be switching between a PT140 Mill Pro and a 1911 Colt Commander. If possible, one that fits both, or has a removeable nylon holster that can be replaced when I change guns, would be the perfect setup for me.

    The only shoulder holster I really found comfortable was the Jackass rig. Now made by Galco.

    The only shoulder harness I've tried so far is the Blackhawk Serpa shoulder harness. I can say that I don't recommend wearing this against bare skin, or even a tank top shirt. Nylon feels very uncomfortable against bare skin. Other than that, it's a decent rig. The only downfall to shoulder rigs is you have to wear a jacket or a loose fitting button up shirt to cover it. I usually wear mine during the colder months.

    Try the Falco (Not Galco) shoulder holster. I have one for Glock 22 and absolutely love it! It was about $65 on Gunner's Alley. It comes from Slovakia

    Tallone,

    Here's a link to a lengthy review of various shoulder holsters. Shoulder Holster Review

    Hope this helps,

    I've been carring for over a decade (my job) the most comfortable is the Miami Vice, leather. Leather is the only one that after it breaks in conforms to your body shape (it takes a while) but soon you forget you are even wearing it. The other materials don't flex and feel like they are digging into you on some spots and won't follow your bodys contour. Trust me
    If I not mistaken its made by GALCO. also you have options for the other side like belt harness, knife/mag carrier,handcuff holder,etc.

    I have the Sam Andrews Monarch rig for my Glock 22 and one on order for my Glock 20. I only use them while hunting. IMO, the monarch is very nice and comfortable; however, I do not have other shoulder holsters to compare it to.

    I've tried several types including Galco's Miami Classic but after finding the Bodyguard by Alessi, nothing else compares:

    Sam Andrews or Alessi for handmade, Galco's Jackass for off-the-shelf.

    +1 on the Andrews Monarch. I think the world of Lou Alessi and his CQC-S is one of my favorite holsters. But, I owned one of his Bodyguards and IMHO the Monarch is superior.

    The Bodyguard is thinner and has the pull-through snap. It's an excellent holster. I found the Monarch adjusted to my body better and was much more comfortable. You can't go wrong with either.

    Talking Sam Andrews: A Prince of a Fella!

    My DW has a Sam Andrews Monarch with her G26 as her EDC, and a second, custom Monarch (vertical) in production as I type.

    She loved the first so much, she wanted the second! I did nothing to encourage that, even though I'll get to use the other....He he he
