Hey everyone I need some advise on a shoulder rig. Im 6'2" about 375 lbs very broad shoulders. I'm looking at a shoulder rig for my Taurus pt92. I was looking at the miami classic II from Galco and was just wondering if it would fit right. I am most worried about the width of the rig compared to my shoulders, has any big men tried this rig, or any shoulder rig for that matter.

I would suggest you try giving them a call. Being a large company I don't know what their customer support is like or how responsive they will be.

You may want to take a look at some of the custom makers that do shoulder holsters. My bet is they will be willing to work with you to get you what you want. Check out the holster makers list on this forum.

Try Alesssi out. Don't know how they are doing since Mr. Alessi passed but Mr. Alessi would work with the customer on his rigs.
My 19 and Bodyguard are a great combo and make concealing and comfortably carrying the snubby a breeze.

I am shorter and heavier than you. I have one shoulder holster, and even with the straps let out all of the way, it hangs the pistol so far to the rear that getting a grip is almost impossible. It does conceal very well under a sweatshirt, as the pistol is entirely hidden by my arm. Accessing the gun involves using the off hand to shove the holster forward enough for the shooting hand to get a grip. A similar problem with the spare magazines on the opposite side, which makes reloading a very slow process. For concealment it is hard to beat. For ease of access and speed of draw, nothing could be worse.

Call Jim Noble [email protected] (360) 695-1309. Ask him about the Dan West Supreme shoulder rig. He can set this up to accomodate any pistol/revolver from a Jennings .22/.25 to a Desert Eagle. (The entire holster will be custom fit to fit YOUR body and handgun!)

The Galco shoulder holster harness straps are shipped Very Long so that you can set the adjustment exactly where you want.

You might want to give Galco International a quick buzz and see if you can order your shoulder rig with straps even longer than that.

Order directly from Galco and check one out. Here Go Da Link. http://www.usgalco.com/Default.asp

I don't have the problem you have. I am 5'6" and 170 pounds. I am, however, broad through the shoulders, thick through the chest, and very narrow throught the waist (yeah, try to get a suit to fit someone like me - 44 short with a 30 inch waist). Belt holsters pull my pants down no matter what kind of belt I am wearing. My Galco Shoulder Holsters are exceptional. I have one for 1911's and I have one for my Beretta 92.

If it sounds like I am "stumping" for Galco Shoulder Holsters, I am! They are very good.

I am 6'3'' and weigh 260 and recently purchased the shoulder holster in the pic from Cabelas for my all steel 1911 Commander. It has worked great for me and I recommend it highly.
