    Question OC & shoulder holster?

    I carry twin 45ACPs & find it far easier to use a shoulder rig. I have a CPL but should I be concerned about being carded if I carry openly this way?

    Welcome to OCDO.

    Probably not, most will assume youre a cop.

    Unless you're breaking a law, you dont have to worry about the police anyhow.

    Thanks for the welcome and feedback. It gets pretty hot trying to cover these full size pistols during the summer. That's what got me thinking about OC then I started reading the threads /*that must make me what you guys call a lurker*/ and decided to try it. I see you have over 5,000 posts are you a Admin. here?

    No -- he just sits on the computer all day and posts on OCDO and other Forums

    I'm guessing your shoulder rig has some active retention?
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    Correct / thumb breaks on both holsters. These are vertical holsters so the muzzles aren't hanging in someone's face while I'm in line at the store etc.

    No no no. Let's see you wearing your rig with both .45s how you would on a normal day OCing.

    Uh --- that's going to require some photographic help, but I'll work on it. The rig is similar to that used in my avatar, just a modern version.
