    Looking for a really good leather shoulder holster rig for my BHP. I was going to get an El Paso Saddlery Spyder Rig with floral cut pattern, but I've heard mixed customer service reviews on El Paso Saddlery. Purdy Leather makes some really beautiful stuff, but when I spoke to them, it's about $750 for what I'm looking for. I'd like some first hand feed back from guys who own good horizontal shoulder holsters. Thanks!

    My Galco Jackass rig is comfortable and packs a full size Government Colt just fine.

    On the Miami an jackass rigs, do they print much? Does the gun and holster move around much walking or bending over?

    I can secure mine to my belt, but usually don't. They move, but they are under your arm. You will have to wear a vest or light jacket, though. the tee-shirt just shows everything! :laugh:

    I am going with El Paso Saddlery. I got mine completely tooled some years ago. 2005 I believe. I had to wait about 5 weeks, but it was worth it.

    I much prefer a vertical rig, much more comfortable and easier to conceal.. another thing ~ with a horizontal you are walking around pointing the muzzle at everyone. In a struggle with an assailant while trying to draw that can be dangerous to you and others. I have an old Mercenary shoulder holster just like the Miami Classic, never wear it these days

    I bought the 1911 model and it packs a variety of other weapons including BHPs
