    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Shoulder holster recommendations?

    I'm a skinny guy - I stand just a hair under 6' and weigh about 150. This has limited my concealment options in the past; I've tended towards belly band worn high under a loose shirt, or to an ankle rig inside my boots. But, now that I have the opportunity to wear a sport coat more frequently, I'm thinking shoulder rig is the way to go, especially since this will afford me the opportunity to carry my .45 on a more regular basis (I hope).

    I'm reaching out, here, to any plain-clothes LEO or other Bullies that have good experience with shoulder holsters, to either dissuade me or convince me of the right gear.

    I have 0 experience with shoulder rigs. I know there are multiple materials and gun orientations to consider. I know that I want to carry an extra clip or two. I think because of my small frame that I want a diagonal or vertical draw - the USP "Compact" is a pretty big gun. Beyond that, I'm lost.

    Help?

    I have no idea about the comfort, quality, or anything else since I don't own one. I've been making imaginary love to them for a long time though. I believe it will make me as cool as Don Johnson.

    We should all be that cool - we've been more popular than him for way too long.

    Verical or horizon , is your .45 a full size or subcompact? If full size, I would suggest atraditional shoulder rig. Some googlefu and you can the rig that has spare mag carriers on the opposite dide. Joe

    This. Used one for years on the mean streets of NYC and Newark with a Sig 220 and later a G23. Very comfortable, great if you are in and out of cars. Worth the $$.

    Ive worn an inexpensive nylon rig under a sport coat for years. Very comfy, but add dome padding to the behind the neck part.

    Carried a 4" 357 horizontal with minimal printing.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".
