Google your state's concealed carry laws, as you can see from earlier posts in this thread that's what we did.

Great guggamugga.

I'll pass on that particular model.

I just can't really be sure with the way it worded. ity really doesnt seem to state anything about manner of carry.

What's the big deal? Not like it's pointed at a vital organ - just the BRAIN

GSUeagle, I'm curious as to why you're looking so hard at a shoulder rig. I think most people will tell you it's not that great a method of carry. For one thing, the barrel will constantly be pointed at whomever is behind you.

A good IWB holster is about the best way to go for most people, and will work well in hot or cold weather. Check out Crossbreed holsters or Comptac holsters, and search TFL for holster threads.

Phoenix,

I'm not really sure, I just don't feel like I could draw very quickly or well from a IWB/OWB holster although I have none to practice with. And yeah now that I think about it I'm not too terribly comfortable with the idea of having my carry gun pointing at the folks behind me. If I went with a belt holster I think I would have to explore some of the different methods of drawing from it.

Thanks guys.

The necklace holster looks just fine for carrying, if you never *ever* intend to draw. I can't think of a safe way to draw from that holster without violating the safety rules (and it's not like you have the gun pointed at your *foot*)

Not all Should rigs

Oops. Obviously I messed up the subject line. Should be, "Not all shoulder rigs point rearward".

I beg to differ.

I have one shoulder holster (for a large revolver) that has the barrel pointed straight down. I have another (for a small frame short barreld revolver that has the gun pointed straight up. Depending on how I have it adjusted and my body position, the gun might be pointed in front of, into or slightly behind my armpit.

Other shoulder holsters have the gun pointed rearward or rearward and up.

I have yet to see a shoulder rig the points rearward and down, but would not rule out the possibility.

About the only holster I would rule out or the realm of possibility is one that has the gun pointing out.

The primary active safety with any firearm is between the ears.
