    Shoulder rigs

    I'm thinking about getting a shoulder rig for my P99 and would like some suggestions. I am ambidextrous and carry on either side, depending on the situation. While I typically carry on my left side, I am right hand dominate.

    The reason I carry on the left side is because my gun is less likely to be exposed. I am confident in my ability to shoot left handed. And everything else I have is carried on the right side.

    Not interested in the fluff? Basically, I'm looking for a cheap, quality ambidextrous shoulder rig that will be comfortable on a fat man.

    Can do that.. holster can be mounted to either side with this rig. But would need to make the holster itself either left or right-handed ahead of time..
    rig itself is adjustable to size.

    That's some really nice work, but alas, I do not have the skill for that. Electronics on the other hand... Name:  icon11.png

    I made a mistake above, it's called Miami Classic, nice looking piece.

    For a good price I bet he'd do it for you. He just made me a really nice custom sheath for my boot knife.

    The Galco Miami Classic is a nice rig, but for a little more, the "*******" series from Galco is a LOT more durable, rugged, and comfortable. IT has wider shoulder straps, the leather is a little more firm, and it's mostly made from horsehide which is one of the best kinds of leather for making holsters that are carried close to the body...

    But the wider shoulder straps of the ******* series is it's REAL strong point--a few fractions of an inch in strap width over the shoulders go a LONG way to making a shoulder rig MUCH more comfy for all-day wear, especially if you are hauling around a full-sized handgun and a couple extra mags...

    Yeah I've considered getting the MCII straps so it might be a little more comfortable. After wearing the shoulder holster all day it kinda bothers me around my shoulder blades.
