    How do I put this Bianchi 9R-1 shoulder holster on correctly?

    I just got a Bianchi 9R-1 "upside down" shoulder holster. I had a woven nylon strap made for it because it was missing the strap.

    There's a pic of the set-up below. I'll be damned if i can figure out how to get it on the right way.

    I can't figure out why two buckles are needed.

    See where the snap part of the woven strap is inserted through a sli in the leather?

    You can't see them, but there are three other slits in the leather in the widest part of the leather strap. I know the other end of the strap has to go through one of them but then I'm just lost as to what to do next.

    Not exactly sure where guidance is needed, but I'll give it a shot.

    Once the holster is placed [and properly adjusted]on your weak side, the nylon strap will most likely run across your back up near the upper part of the back of your neck.... then continuing to re-rout toward the front of your strong shoulder and then down and towards the rear (4 o'clock or 8 o'clock) on your belt, which will go through the loop. The buckles are used for adjusting and tightening the rig on the belt.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Glad you got it straightened out. That is one great little holster you have there. I carried a nickle plated, S&W chiefs special with a shrouded hammer ( can't remember the model designation) for many years working plain clothes and the gun retention was great. I always felt the gun was secure and accessable. I still have the holster but not the straps. It works just as well as a belt holster to.
