Default Smallish people's opinion on shoulder holsters

I'm a small framed person that just got my CCW permit. I'm looking for a good holster to carry my Glock G19. I'm looking into either an OWB holster like the Crossbreed or a shoulder holster. These guys look like they've got a good adjustable shoulder holster but I'm still not sure whether a shoulder holster would even work for a smaller person or if it would be too bulky around my torso. Any recommendations on either Deep Conceal or shoulder holster fits in general is much appreciated.

Ive had a shoulder holster before, im not a fan. My training has alot to do with it, but also if you ever get thrown down on your stomache during a struggle, you wont be able to unholster your gun. Im 5'8 160lbs and i carry a full size 1911 IWB

Having to reach across your body to draw is not the best setup. I recommend a Blackhawk serpa holster. I picked one up for my 19 and then for my 20. I love them. Great retention and lightning fast draw.
