  • Shoulder Holster

    Anybody use a shoulder holster? Does it get uncomfortable after 8 hrs or so??

    I wouldn't have one, because they're more tacticool that practical.

    A lot of folks think they're great because the cops in the last Hollywood movie they saw wore one.

      Regarding shoulder holsters:
      Negatives:
      Hot and confining when temperatures are high.
      Stiff neck at the end of the day.
      Everything is crossdraw.
      Tough reholstering.
      More difficult to conceal.

      Positives:
      When you absolutely, positively must go now!

        Add: They really don't conceal weapons very well. Perhaps useful in the days when detectives carried 6" revolvers.

        If you have to get your gun on quickly, a paddle holster is better.

          I use one when flying for all the same reasons it wouldn't be good while working. Namely, cross-draw and not on your hip
          "You don't want the truth because, deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall... I have neither the time, nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it."

            I pretty much agree with pulicords on this one. I wouldn't wear one to actually conceal a firearm, but I do have one set up with my "bump in the night" side arm. It works very well for that, and depending on the holster configuration you can have a light, extra ammo and cuffs all ready to go.

              The ONLY time I wished I had one was when flying cross-country on an extradition. My agency prohibits thier use.
