For anything heavier than about 38 oz., a high-ride crossdraw or straight draw, on a 2-inch or wider belt is a much more comfortable, secure and convenient is the way to pack a handgun.
I disagree. I've worn Galco shoulder holster for many years.

For me, at least, they are infinitely more comfortable and concealable than "cowboy" holsters.

It is very important what a man stands for.
But it is far more important what a man refuses to stand for.
