    Aliengear Shoulder Holster

    Does anyone have any experience with these? I really like the modularity. I have a few of their holsters and they are pretty good.

    Not knocking Alien gear, but if your gonna spend the bucks for a shoulder rig IMO, you'll be happier with the Miami Classic from Galco.

    Not answering your question, and I'm not sure what you want to conceal, but I have been very happy with the simple and small Safariland 7053 7ts-als ("Holsterops.com") shoulder holster for my M&P Shield. Great for the price.

    It has the thumb-catch release (Automatic Locking System). . . and I was initiially cold on that but it has proven to be a happy thing for a shoulder holster as I use one. Frequently in a kayak under a lifejacket or working around the yard and bending over a lot or at the dog park throwing a fetch toy. Secure but fast to release.

    I recently bought a shoulder holster from Stoner Holsters. A little pricey, but really well made and comfortable. I do have a few AG holsters and all of them have been good. An AG would be a quality item for sure.

    I just looked at a Miami Classic. It is quite a bit more expensive than the Alien Gear. The modularity is interesting to me. One holster that all I need to do is order another shell to carry another gun. I have until the weather cools here in Illinois to make my decision.

    My shoulder holster page: http://dave2.freeshell.org/tech1/shoulder/holsters.htm

    Essentially there are two types of shoulder holster: the "X" or "crossover" types like the Galco, and the "single side" like the old Brown Shoe Co. rigs.

    Having worn shoulder holsters exclusively for six years now, I'm solidly in the "single side" camp.

    Thank you for that information. I had no idea that there were that many options out there.

    I went for a custom, the Monarch with three mag holders from Andrew's Custom Leather out of Florida.

    Three spare mags? They balance my Sig SP2022 within an ounce side to side.

    Compared to the options you are looking at, this is probably a budget breaker, but I do like the rig. A lot.
