    Black Hills Leather, bikini, shoulder rig

    I didn't like muzzle sweeping everyone behind me at the grocery store.

    Leather seems to be more substantial than my Galco, fittings are good quality, holster fits the CCO well.

    Seems comfortable and well designed. Tie downs are integrated into the holster and mag pouches.

    Haven't gotten it completely adjusted yet, but you get the idea.

    We'll see how it works, and I'll report back after a few weeks.

    nice looking rig! I like a shoulder rig to fit high and tight, never tried one low with tie downs like that before...

    I've heard those can be a bother to get adjusted just right. Looks like a quality setup, though. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts after you've tried it for a while. :smilie:

    This rig looks cool but I cannot imagine how it would be possible to draw from the holster or conduct a reload with any speed at all.

    A good shoulder holster is fast to draw from. Bruce Willis and Don Johnson do it great.LOL Seriously shoulder holsters are pretty quick. The drawback is a vest or jacket has to be worn at all times.

    I really like this shoulder rig. I have a question for the OP. It doesn't appear that you can get a full grip on the gun when drawing. Is this a problem or just an illusion from the pics.
