Re: Shoulder holster for CCW?
Another attaboy for Galco. When I needed to carry in a deep concealment mode for extended periods of time, I eventually found the various Galco brand of finished leather shoulder holsters. They were able to meet my requirements for both long term carry comfort and for deep concealment. The slightly muzzle up and to the rear under the arm carry of a Commander sized 1911 and 2 loaded spare mags on the off side was really pretty comfortable and did not 'print'. However, the very best configuration in terms of long term wearer comfort and lack of any 'printing' whatsoever was the (now apparently discontinued) Galco SS2 shoulder rig combined with the quite narrow H&K P7/M8 9mm. That was nifty setup. And a word of advice for selecting a shoulder holster for your application, the more narrow 'Miami Vice' style of shoulder holster straps are a bit cooler in hot weather, but the weight of the pistol and the spare mags is much more apparent to the long term wearer. So, you have to trade wider strap comfort for cool.
