A similar rig used to be called The Jackass Holster, but this is very nice, the gun is well balanced by the extra mag case and it won't slide much at all

That's a nice set up, but like I said, I need a vertical holster.

I like the Original Jackass Leather horizontal rig, it has a thumb break that completely blocks the hammer from making contact, it's pretty much the same thing as the Galco Miami Classic. If your pistol is too long to hang horizontal on your torso, just lower the butt and angle the muzzle up past your armpit. I really think that's more the way these things were meant to be carried, about 3/4 upside down. PM me, I'll write you tediously boring instructions on how to make one CA, after your sheath project it won't be too tough. You'll have to buy a snap setter though, then you're almost in business.

Thanks for the offer, but I think I'll buy this rather than make it. Although it's an interesting idea. Then again, I have to think about that, it would be a hell of a project.

Same as previous post but in vertical. I find the tie-downs are necessary if you do a lot of physical activity. If you are short in the torso the tied-downs probably won't work though.

I'm leaning towards the Galco VHS pretty much at this point. I still have plenty of time, so I can go slow on this.

The Bianchi you mentioned has a Spring Loaded feature that I really like, but as someone else pointed out, the elastic strap can really get old, after having it saw your shoulder all day long.
