Do you guys know of anyone who makes a quality shoulder rig for the USP-C .45?

Horizontal carry, right hand draw, and quiet with no popping snaps or ripping velcro noises?

Thanks

Have you tried Galco? THey make good quality leather holsters.

Bianchi is another one who may have them.

Thanks Gentlemen.
I have both catalogs, but I was hoping to hear from someone who had a favorite shoulder rig for this fine pistol, and had some experience wearing it.
Best,
Fuego

Most wearers of shoulder rigs have told me that they're strictly for cold weather as it takes at least a suit jacket for cover.

I have a hard time with holsters until I settled on using a Fobus paddle.

A cop friend of mine actually does not like the shoulder holster. He has been in foot pursuits with partners that have carried with a shoulder holster, during part of it the damn gun fell out and his buddy had to stop and pick the thing up. Another pal of mine a SWAT officer carries his Sig in a Galco shoulder holster, most likely a SS2, and doesn't come across any problems. Really its about the users preference.
Tried a Galco on before, Miami style, didn't really like it. Uncomfortable on the shoulders, the SS2 style system looks much more comfortable.

Well, the deal is, I am about 30 pounds overweight, and the last thing I need is something besides my gut pushing my pants down.

That's why I was thinking of a shoulder rig.

The cheapest thing for me would be to lose 20-30 pounds, but I have a pork loin on the rotisserie as I write.

I have a shoulder rig for my HK USP 45C that I got from Kramer Handgun Leather in Tacoma, WA.

It was expensive - $180 - but worth every penny. It has a double mag pouch on the right side and the holster on the left side.

Check them out, they make great products.
