Default Shoulder Holster... to be or not to be

So whats your take on shoulder holsters? People really seem to have mixed feelings on these. I have heard the argument "It is rude to stick your gun barrel at people" Seriously i have heard that before.

I have worn a few here and there, and it seems like a practical option to be worn with a jacket.

What do you guys think?

I have worn right side up shoulder holsters, upside down rigs, and point to the rear types. Usually with a larger handgun, and yes, you need a jacket/coat. They were comfortable even with a heavy gun that will make yer britches droop, when nature calls and you go drop trou in the men's room, your gun does not hit the floor and slide two stalls down.

Drawbacks? Well, did have a friend that, when drawing, snagged his shirt with a sharp hammer spur, and ripped half the front off his shirt......

Depending on the particular holster/gun/jacket, may tend to "print" more than an IWB type. You wind up doing a crossdraw, which can be a smidge slower to come on target.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

I actually just bought one the other day, its got the pistol under my left arm in the horizontal position with a mag pouch on top and two more mags under my right arm. I wore it for about four hours around the house just to get used to it and found it very comfortable. Havent wore it out in public yet but with the weather turning cold ill be wearing it under a jacket soon enough
