    Extremely cool, but I don’t think it’s a viable CC option unless you’re a high class private security detail and always wear a suit

    They'd be viable if wind didn't exist. Also, you will experience severe back/neck issues if the weight of the gun isn't counterbalanced on the other side. You need three full 17-round Glock mags to counterbalance a G19. They don't even sell shoulder rigs set up for that. I would leave shoulder holsters in the past if I were you.

      Perhaps you can consider a different gun than the G19 to carry then if you're this critically concerned about weight distribution. Maybe a Ruger LCP or G42/43?

        NTA but I've actually had severe scoliosis for decades now (it was detected too late and is just barely on the edge of requiring surgery) which doesn't affect my ability to carry uneven loads. Physiotherapists even encourage me to exercise my back more than the average sedentary lifestyle requires, to keep it functional despite being a crooked piece of shit. The biggest deal is I shouldn't sit like a normal person.

    Classiest way to carry. How do you intend to carry in a suit without a shoulder holster?

  8. 2 months ago
    Anonymous

    No to both, though more mildly to the latter. CC isn't the only thing in carry anon. Most of my carry is open, because I live in a rural area and carry a full size HG almost exclusively for animals. Since it's cold much of the year here yeah like other anon said sure I can throw a coat over it and it's cc, but the main point is that it's an ultra comfortable way to carry a full gun during all work. Tractor, chainsawing and doing roof work or anything else, long hiking trips with pack, fanny pack, on snowshoes or skies, whatever, never gets in the way. The decline of open carry in much of the country and habit of men wearing decent clothes and jackets is unfortunate since it's so comfortable but it's not a meme.

    But at the same time if I had to go to some urban place with concealed only then no, wouldn't be a first, or second or third for that matter choice I reckon. Probably would want a compact there and more universal concealment carry.

    Viable CC option you fucking retard. Vertical shoulder holsters are top tier for people who dont need deep concealment and spend a lot of time seated. If you have a pro gun or minding their own business road job, office job, or anything else where youre seated much of the time then they're just about the comfiest option out there while being decently quick. The biggest actual issue IMO is that shoulder carry conceals like shit compared to IWB let alone pocket carry.

    It should ride higher than that, that’s more like a Tanker holster.
    If you’re in and out of a vehicle all day, in an office, etc, it’s a great way to carry, especially in colder climates. I know a few Leafs who carry that way.

    Have a DeSantis vertical for my Witness .45.

    Not crazy about it,desu, prefer my Don Hume JIT slide, but the problem with that is having your suits/blazers/sportcoats cut to hide the bulk of the piece, either my tailor let's out the chest or let's ou the waist.
    Letting out both looks weird when the coat is buttoned.

    Unless you're carrying a hand cannon or extremely fat, I don't see why you wouldn't opt for IWB carry. Even in the summer a full-size handgun conceals just fine in a AIWB holster under an untucked t-shirt. Shoulder holsters severely lack in versatility.

      That pic=Hollywood gayry.

      Put on your suit coat, Mr, Craig.

      Muzzle sticks out the back.
      Butt sticks out the front.

      Angle the piece muzzle up and butt down an rely on the retention strap to keep it from falling out.
      Or…buy a verification rig with n open front an a spring steel retention clip so that you pivot the butt down and pull the piece out.

      Problem now is that you’re essentially carrying a left side waist, but high, and your suit coat has to be cut for it.

      James Bond buttons his suit coats.

      Horizontal carry is fine for snubbie revolvers and small semis they were invented for, not for large semis with full-size barrels.

        That mildly annoyed me because for all the silly zany stuff in bond historically they actually paid a lot of attention to the tailoring of his suits and having the basic gun work. If you know holsters it just looks so obviously sloppy there, like if someone knows suits they'd recognize if Bond was stuck in some random shit generic one.

        Though I guess these days lots of young people wouldn't recognize either.

          Quite so. The youngsters nowadays will wear suits at their prom, at job interviews, and at funerals.

          I guess it’s fudd to lament the shocking decline of haberdashery in our society. Watch the old newsreels and see that people would wear suit, tie and hat to attend a baseball game or a prizefight.

          James Bond originally carried a Walther PPK in .22LR, which was much more in keeping with his gig as a SECRET Agent…then the gunFag comers got involved…

          When you’re in that line of work and HAVE to pull your gun and shoot, you’re not very good at your job,(or the other side has someone better at catching you).

            I have mixed feelings. I don't think it's entirely fudd. Yeah, "everyone must conform to dress code" and social stratification and shit could and was taken too far in many instances. But at the same time humans are odd creatures and I think it some level of professionalism and care to get serious is helpful to mindset. So is putting lines between areas of our lives, there has been a great blurring where work and home and everything has gotten all blended together. For some maybe that's great, but overall I think it hasn't been healthy. There is some symbolism in getting home from work and /taking off your tie and suit/, like you are exiting work mode. You are relaxing. Work was hard and demanding but now the time is yours and your family's. Whether you're on business or not has a clear symbol. There is some respect for everyone else too, "I care enough about my work place and coworkers' reputations and everything to put in some effort." Dunno, don't mean to get all rose goggled either and I say this as someone in my early 40s who has indeed lived the full flex time and relaxed-tech-casual and contractor and such life quite a lot. But I've come to think it's gone too far the other way, too much expectation of constant connection, not enough boundaries, some people are completely professional no matter what but I've noticed others need "structural help" kinda if that makes sense. They take social cues. Suits or at least decent shirt/tie/pants also made it easy for everyone and removed a lot of personal politics type stuff that caused friction.

            Anyway, yeah though for James Bond specifically it twinged my OCD a bit, I like it when there is attention to detail on stuff like that. He's always been a flashy character but still.

            In Dr. No, at least, he is just returned from sick leave after his .25 Beretta failed to stop some goon who put him through a plate glass window or something. It makes a big deal about Bond wanting to keep the Beretta as his service pistol, but M makes him accept a Walther PPK in 7,65mm, which is seen as a huge increase in firepower (one more bullet and stopping power enough to kill a charging bull with one shot).

            It's adorable really

              I suppose in fairness any new Bond movies probably need to adapt a bit to the era they're in. IRL agencies have changed opinions about carry in the last 40 years a few times do to changes in threats and changes in technology and the loads available. Like part of why we saw the whole "9mm (1970s) isn't enough anymore we need more, ok 10mm is too much to handle how about less, ok 40S&W fine, wait 9mm now has tungsten sintered ram loads and shit available it performs fine now" thing. And of course at Bond's level money is no object for something like this, if some specific snowflake round min/maxed better for his needs and comfort agency armorer will hand make him all the ammo required to match specs.
