    I ordered a 1851 colt navy from cabela's and am thinking of oc'ing it with a shoulder holster as it has a 7 1/2 inch barrel...it just seems like it would be more comfortable...anyone else use a shoulder holster?...I currently carry either a Astra 9mm or a 1873 cattleman 45 in side holsters.

    I use a chest strap for my BFR but not for city wear. It wrinkles my Tux.

    Peter, we all know you have one of those custom Q-designed spring-loaded up-the-sleeve rigs like 007 for your gold-plated Walther PPK... You don't have to rub our faces in it...

    Peter Nap was the model on whom the image of Q was based, but they had to tone the specifics down a bit for the movies - nobody would have believed it.

    BTW - I think Peter taught Mr. Bond how to draw that thing. :quirky

    This is the BP I carry in my 'over the shoulder' rig. Bus riders don't even notice.
