Yes. It's a Galco Jackass Shoulder Rig.

That is the one I wear after years of trying just about everything out there. It is the best one out there in my opinion. I did spring for the wider shoulder straps though, a wise upgrade.

When you see them on a TV show, as you often will, they always have the thin straps which means the actor has never carried a loaded weapon & two mags for a day of travel or protection post.

Here's a confirming photo.

Wreck, sent you a PM. I'll bump some holster pics I've got in the DIY section, you can see if you want to listen to me or not.

so like i promised here is a pic of the finished rig, i couldn't find enough matching suede long enough so that's the reason for the different color straps, and the stitching looks like a drunk did it but it's really comfortable and works great, thanks to the help of yall and freefall, appreciate it.

Looking good Wreck! Ook ook! Can't see how you attached the front strap to the holster? What kind of leather did you use for the holster? Looks kind of crinkly. Nice effect. The x piece in the back looks great, much better than my erratic butterfly. Well struck sir, very well struck.

Damn, wreck1819 that looks good. Have you thought about dyeing the leather to match? even if you do not it still looks good. Congrats. What did you end up spending on your rig?

I can tell you that mine cost about $10-12 in actual cash outlay and about 4-6 hours of fabrication, not counting the 48 hrs I let the leather dry after forming. And a couple hours after gluing.

Freefall- It was just some scraps from hobby lobby, the crinkly effect came in because the leather was originally to thin so i sewed in some support strips, that's what i used to make the retaining strap, and when i soaked it that just happened, all the other pieces were attached using some rivets and D rings except the one on the top of the gun it was sewn in.

Phelenwolf- overall it cost me about $30 but that was because i bought a leather hole punch (which was a complete POS broke on the first hole attempted), snap set, and glue which those three alone where a bit over $15. Actuall leather cost was $10
