One of the tricks to snatching in such conditions, JimDandy (she knows he's armed, but not where he's carrying) is to take his mind and balance. In other words, attack him, and observe when he goes for the weapon. While he's off-balance, it's relatively easy for her to take it when he tries for it.

Said the "gamer" who just spent the last hour teaching weapon retention and takeaways to the sergeant of the guard...

I sometimes carry with a single rig for one of my .45s. I have two shoulder holsters, both by Uncle Mike. Reasonably priced and comfortable.

"is to take his mind"

Pulling someone's brain out through their nose is always a good tactic.

Mike, that would be a rather extreme case.

Spear hand or ridge hand to the v of the throat, right below the Adam's apple; finger or thumb gouge to the eyes; anything that prompts a gag or flinch reflex, and takes the person's mind off control of their balance, let alone their weapon. That's what I mean by taking their mind.

Think of the target zone as going from between the eyes, down along the spinal column through the upper torso... it's actually not so different from the ideal places to put bullets. Attack that line while simultaneously going for the weapon.

Anyone hear of J.R. Roscoe Handmade Leather shoulder holsters??
He is out of Texas. Suppose to be one of the best shoulder holster makers.
