If you do not mind wearing some sort of jacket all the time.....sure why not. I use to wear one with my Colt Mark IV while in the States. I had to carry large amounts of cash to the bank.

You tend to sweat all over the gun. Lmfao

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

The only reason I voted no is because I couldn't conceal with what I wear most of the time. Now, if I was a "suit", then, yes, I'd definitely be more interested. It actually looks and sounds like a comfortable way to carry.

As used for concealment, I have found that different situations require different holsters.

A shoulder rig or cross-draw are great when having to sit for a while, but there are limits on when they can be used.

I had a shoulder holster back in my early 20s, but it was for a Glock23. To me it was never that comfortable and I was always moving around trying to make it comfortable. I vote NO, give me a gool 'ol hip holster or IWB any day

One time more moob is better; it adds to the concealment.

I used one for a while with my g21. It was difficult to conceal well and uncomfortable. I was adjusting the straps more than my wife adjusts her bra!
While I did like 2 extra mags that were easy to carry and very accessible, I felt that weapon retention was not good either. The rig is now in a box somewhere and has been for more than a decade.

i think it might be dependent upon your clothing choices. might have just try one out and see it it's comfortable and suits your needs.

With some of the coats i wear the one i got from a friend seems to work well. not very comfortable and need to adjust the straps some more but it does work. Its amazing that i can carry a full size 1911 and have it fully concealed.
