Shoulder Holsters?

Are there any shoulder holsters out there that would actually conceal either a 4" Colt Python or a Glock? I have good belt holsters but I wondered for a secondary type of carry. The few I've tried all leave the grip sticking straight out forward. Not subtle to observers. Also would help if there were any that were quick and easy to get on.

I remember BULLIT with Steve Mcqueen years ago and a holster he had that would slip on easily and quickly. It also left his weapon hanging upside down - don't know how easy I'd feel with that. Then again, this was a movie so who knows if the holster was even a real one.

Concealable Shoooulder holsters?

I have always gone for the Bianchi X15, vertical holster.
The only requirement is a coat or jacket that comes below the waist.
I got a new X15 from:
Bianchi holsters
for about $60.00.
has a good knock off of the olds Burns-Martin holster for about $100.00.
It is close to the Steve Mcquene holster.

Take a look at Galco. Their Miami Classic is comfortable and fairly easy to slip into. I think they have a vertical type holster now too.

Ken Null makes a version of the upside-down holster for autos, similar to that McQueen wore in Bullet. Look for his Model USH made of polymer or horsehide.

For some years in the 70's, SafariLand made the upside down holster for wheelguns as their Model 19 holster. I still have one, though the elastic tensioner should be replaced.

El Paso Saddlery ( makes a nice horizontal carry shoulder holster with the option of a speed-loader pouch on the off-side.
