While I have certainly enjoyed the rapid proliferation of Kydex as a holster material, its typically been used for waistband holsters to great effect. A plethora of options exist for the discerning concealed and non-concealed carrier with inside and outside the waistband options expanding at an exponential rate.
Sadly, the shoulder holsters have largely been left out of the equation. While a staple of the 1980’s police detective ensemble, they have not made an easy transition into the modern polymer pistol world. Yes, one can argue fashions have changed to far more casual than in the past, but that does not mean that they do not have an excellent place within the sheepdog’s carry options.
In to fill the game is GunfightersINC, which offers the Spectre Shoulder Holster system. Designed to be fully customizable, the system offers two cants for the weapon including 45 degree and “vertical.” 45 degree is best for ease of draw on smaller handguns like the Glock 19, but for those who want more… firepower, the vertical option is set up for G17 and longer handguns, like a G34 or G17. When combined with a vertically canted magazine option, one can truly and easily concealed carry the long side options with corresponding “happy sticks.”
This makes me happy.
The Spectre Shoulder Holster is available directly from GunfightersINC and is completely customizable to your daily carry load. This includes type of handgun, cant, number of magazines, etc.
