I went to my favorite gun shop yesterday in search for a solid carry rig for this upcoming winter. I do believe I found one. I went with the Galco Miami Classic II Shoulder Rig. I have never owned or wore a shoulder rig before in my life. This is a very new feel to me. I find it somewhat uncomfortable honestly. I am sure it is like any holster though. Give it enough time and you won't even know you have it on. I am very pleased with the quality of this rig. It fits my new Kimber pro CDP II like a glove. I couldn't ask for a better fit. All in all I have to say that I recommend this rig to anybody that is looking for a holster that is Made In The U.S.A. And made of high quality steer hide. I would give this one two thumbs up! :35:

Very nice. I carried a 80 series combat commander in one quite some years ago.

Now-days , I'd prefer the High Noon Undertaker rig if I was to carry a 1911
again.

Galco is one of the best "off the shelf" holster makers out there IMHO.

Awesome! You can work with it. In a way, I'm wanting another shoulder holster rig....but in a way, I'm not getting too adamant about it. Hard for me to describe actually. I've carried the Glock 17 in one, and before that, a 1911A1. There's no love lost, but in order for me to feel complete once again, I think I want one (shoulder holster rig) just to have the options I once had again. I think my P220 would fit good in one and do me good with that kind of weight again in a horizontal rig. I've never ruled it out.....it's just not been at the top of my list for a while. The best harnesses should be almost infinitely adjustable. I've been looking, and I'll have one again. It's only a matter of time. Good luck to you and yours.

I think I am going to get the holter that fits with this rig for my Glock 23 also. That way instead of buying a whole new rig I can just swap out holsters. And this rig is very adjustable. You can pretty much set it however you want it. I have really enjoyed it in the short time I have had it.

Thank you! I never considered a shoulder holster till the other day. I was thinking about winter and being able to throw my coat over it. Plus it is nice to have easy access to 2 extra mags if I ever needed them. It is so much more comfy than having two extra mags on your hip.

I ordered just the other day a Miami Classic for my P99c AS. I've also ordered two Don Hume H721 "Double Nine" holsters -- one for the P99c and another for my PPK/S.

Waiting anxiously for all.

Nice looking rig. BTW ... please make sure your safety is engaged. I'm assuming that the gun was cocked and unloaded for the pics?

Oh yes of course. The magazine that was in the gun was completely empty. I racked my slide a couple times also just to be safe. In the state the gun was in, at the time of the picture, would only have hurt somebody if you picked it up and threw it at them. Empty mag, Empty chamber, with the hammer cocked for a quick picture. :smile:

I'd like to know if anyone can speak from experience as to their preferences or reasoning in choosing either the Miami Classic, Miami Classic II or the Jackass Rig. I have looked at them and see some obvious differences but wonder which one people prefer and why.

I have a Miami Classic. The main difference is that your holster, (MCII), has wider straps at the shoulder than the other two. If you carry a full sized gun this would of course help spread the weight over a larger area. I sometimes think about buying the strap set to see how much of a difference it would make. I carry a really light gun though so it's never been a issue with me.

I'm not sure I can agree with your statement;
Give it enough time and you won't even know you have it on.
I find it difficult to not be constantly aware of the holster. To me, at least, it is always "there". Depends on how active you are.

The quality of the Galco is good, you can expect many years of service. Take time to get the fitting correct. Having another person to help you makes it go faster. Some people find they like to use tie-downs to limit holster movement.

The really neat thing about the Galcos is the modular concept they have. There are many accessories available to tailor the rig to your specific needs.

I like the open and horizontal position of the mag carrier of the Classic II. That's one of the reasons I chose it.

I guess what I should have said was "give it enough time and it will become less bothersome and more comfortable"
