Default Shoulder holsters..

I am looking for a good quality shoulder holster for this winter. I want something that will last. Any suggestions or experiences with this type of holster?

Dont waste your $35 on unkle mikes. They are totally uncomfortable.

I have a Galco Miami Classic shoulder holster that lasted two deployments although I only used it while we were in the wire.

Thanks for the replies, I'm running into an issue though. I have a Px4 storm, and cannot find a Galco for my model.

First off for what gun are you looking for a shoulder Rig for.? I by passed the Galco rigs & went with a Bodyguard Rig from Alessi Leather for my 1911's. spent about $180.00 + shp on it. But it's the best $$$$ that Iv'e ever spent on any leather rig. So check out their web site, & if you call them up ask to speak to Tom he is the MGR. that took over the operation after the passing of Lou Alessi. I think you will love their work & the comfort of their shoulder rig. Good luck & keep us posted on your decision etc.

Try DeSantis for a shoulder holster. I use a Safariland for my Glock, but have been using this one for 25 years with no issues.The holster is lined and protects the gun's finish as you can see and even detaches and can be used on a belt. I and my son have several of their holsters and are completely satisfied.

Alright here is an update. I just ordered a DeSantis Patriot, found one on ebay for sixty dollars that comes with a dual mag holder also. Even though it may not be all leather, I figure for the price it is worth a shot.

You won't be sorry with it. For the price you can't go wrong and the nylon will hold up very well and protect your weapon. DeSantis holsters are very well made and selection was a nice choice. Best of luck with it.
