    Best vertical shoulder rig for a 1911?

    I was wondering if anyone here uses a vertical shoulder rig to ccw a 1911? I've been considering a bianchi x15 or galco explorer are these good rigs? Also if anyone here knows of a better vertical shoulder rig please feel free to let me know about it. Do vertical shoulder holster conceal better than horizontal ones? I would think they would cause theres nothing going across your body like the muzzle of the gun to print,is this a correct assumption?

    Galco makes a decent vertical. The Bianchi X-15 carries well but, reholstering is somewhat of a PITA.

    Fist makes a vertical shoulder holster rig...(#70)...I have one for my Kimber Ultra. I don't use it much, but it is comfortable. Here in FL, I find it easier to use an IWB under a shirt for hot weather.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    Instead of the muzzle printing, the grip of the gun may print. I have a Vega vertical rig... the X-harness really helps comfort.

    I have no problems carrying it regardless of the weather - since I'm only outside when moving from one air-conditioned domicile to another. :p
