    I'm looking for my first shoulder holster for a Beretta 96, also I'm a big guy and left handed. Any suggestions of a good holster for me, I'd like it to be concealable. Also looking for one for a GP 100 with a 6" barrel, that one will be more for hunting and stuff so concealability isn't as much of an issue. Thanks.

    Hard to beat a Galco Miami Classic, unless you're a cheapskate like Wreck1918 and me and make your own. Check out his thread Shoulder Holster in the concealed carry section. Oh, you could also look at my "my homemade holsters" in the DIY section.

    I don't think the Miami Classic or the Jackass Rig come in left hand versions (for the 96).

    What model 96 do you have?

    Ya got two things going against you for a shoulder rig; you're big and you're a southpaw. :(

    price really isn't a big deal as long as I find one I like. I'd rather not have a couple hundred stuck into it or anything like that if I can help it I guess.

    Can go wrong with a Galco Miami classic. Usually about $150.00. Its comfortable, doesn't show under a shirt and has lots of options. Stay away from nylon, Alway too bulky and doesn't mold well to your body

    Take a look at a Bianchi X15 and the Triple K Challenger vertical shoulder holsters.

    I use a Miami Classic and am left-handed, so I know they make the left-handed holsters, just not sure about that model. If you contact Galco, even if it's not in the catalog, I'm sure they could reverse a right-hander for you given three weeks or so. I've had great luck with their customer service.
