Sample text

I recommend paying attention to two specific aspects of the shoulder holster design: strap width and carry angle. Strap width The width of the straps is critical to both concealment and comfort. When I was going through my shoulder holster phase I wore a gun that weighed (empty) just short of 30 ounces. The holster I had, from a reputable and inordinately talented maker, had straps that were about an inch wide. These thin straps cut into the flesh around the base of my neck, and after an hour or so would become excruciatingly painful.

The weight of the gun stretches the loop, allowing it to sag more as the leather softens. Since the loop is sewn onto the back of the holster body, unless the holster mouth is reinforced the body will also be stretched outward. When these things happen the butt of the gun has a tendency to protrude downward and outward, compromising concealment. What makes the tunnel loop less concealable also makes it more comfortable. The cylinder sits on the belt, rather that being pulled into it, and so doesn’t put any pressure on the body.

A revolver carried in a pocket can reveal itself through outline. The snub-nose revolver, the type that’s usually carried in a pocket, has perhaps the most recognizable silhouette of any gun made. If a piece of fabric is laid over the top with just a hint of tension, the outline of the gun is easily seen. A proper pocket holster camouflages the outline with its own shape (and sometimes an extra piece of covering material), making the silhouette harder to recognize. Pocket holsters are ideally made from leather, which quickly takes shape to match the contour of pocket in which it’s carried.
