However, I still prefer the butt-down position to draw from rather than the horizontal position shown in the pics. Butt-down also positions the gun between the pecs rather than on top of them which helps a lot in concealing it. Is there a way to rotate the holster counter-clockwise to the butt-down position and still have the dual shoulder straps?
Brother I used that Survival Sheath holster to death. Too bad the guy is not reliable. Now I have to go read about this one.

This is how I carry mine, but with one neck strap.

Additionally the Neck straps can both go to one mount hole.

Wouldn't want to do that with the waist strap due to stability.
This version looks like a winner.

LMFAO....that is still the most cost-effective holster ever made. And worked great.

Yep.....I'm digging that one. I can carry a full size semi-auto very concealed and very comfy. I have sub-compacts to carry CCW, but if I can comfortably conceal it, I will go full size every time. I will probably grab one of those soon for my G34.

Sharky -- I'm one of the testers for Lp's first concept on the chest holster and gave him the option of one for a G30S or a full size 1911, he sent me one for my 1911. When carrying port arms there isn't any indication of a weapon at all, and when carrying at other configurations there is minimal with just a shirt on. If I wear a pullover, jacket or something of that nature there is minimal if any printing of the pistol.


I'm attaching a photo, I'm by no means a good at taking pictures of myself.

I'm not a picture posting kind of guy, any help in correcting the picture would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks -- Steamin

Thanks. I was wearing mine at a certain place at Bragg back around 2005 doing some training. There were a lot of curious looks when I pulled my button-up dress shirt off and they saw that holster. After a brief discussion about how I liked it, next thing I knew they were taking pictures and measurements. Pretty sure the riggers were put to work soon after. It's a good design. I think this one is better.

I have been a fan of the Superman carry for many years -- especially if you are thinking of doing anything remotely physical. But generally speaking (in the grand scheme of things), it doesn't beat the J-Holster (wire hanger)....

Updates on design. It's hard for me to leave well enough alone. Especially when well enough doesn't quite match up with my idea of a good time.
So, here is the latest update. That center hole (above the slide) has been removed.
It wasn't causing problems for my comfort. But my comfort is not your comfort, and so on.
As can be imagined or as happens I usually do find slight tweaks that can be accomplished without much ado.
Hopefully the Eagle has landed.


And at least three different angles of carry not including you can simply reverse the thing for LH carry (I'm RH).


I intend to offer screws for the mounting attachments which will further reduce the print of the holster. I haven't had a problem with printing with these thumbscrews and as happens I like being able to reach up and tweak without a tool handy.

I had a friend Bill contact you today. When this is done let me know as we should be good for 2 or 3 of them.

Nice looking set up.

What are the chances after you get this one perfected that you'll mess with a shoulder holster I mentioned to you through email a while back?

My wife tested the original design. Her only "negative" comment was about the angle of the draw. The holster was concealable, virtually disappearing under a shirt or scrub top. The wife had no complaints about comfort, or security of the weapon. ( she wears it in the butt down position)
I have the original version also. Love it. I have worn it doing various farm/ranch jobs. Working cattle, riding, cutting wood, and have had absolutely no issues. I cover it with a button down, and it disappears.
With that being said, I am really liking the latest version.....Looks like Tom is going to have to make me another....

I am.
Thank you for posting the Wifes assessment!

I had to delay BlackJack78's pal's holster due to waiting on some material and gear.

I'm GTG now, but will be better in a week when the new Sewing Machine gets here.

I like this design better too, if only because it gives more options.

I'll consider it. Though I admit I know absolutely Nuh-thing in regards to the shoulder holsters.

My preference is to stick to kydex. If that can incl. Shoulder holsters, then I'm all for it.

How often do people wear those things? And who/where?

I'm all for the kydex like the holsters you have. I was thinking something along the lines of the chest rig you've set up, which look sweet by the way.

I'd love to give it a test drive if you work something out.

I can't comment on who/where those are worn. I'd wear mine at church and pretty much whenever I had a jersey or some kind of cover shirt on.

I like the design better than the survival sheath and I wore that shit to death. Now. I just need to order holsters to go with harness for change outs lol By chance do you make close ride pancakes for K-frames? yes. some old dogs still carry wheel guns.
