Shoulder Holster Recommendation

I would like to carry a handgun in the field while hunting/camping. It's a 5.5" Super Blackhawk, non scoped and I think a shoulder holster would work best. Any recommendations? I found Uncle Mikes makes one, but am looking for other choices.

The ability to detach the holstered gun from the rig (strapping), easily, would be a big plus. For instance, to take off the gun without removing the belts/straps.

I have belt holsters now and like them for smaller auto's, but find them awkward for heavier guns like the SBH.

Check out the "Chesty Puller" system from Simply Rugged. Usually one of the top recommendations for large revolver carry.

Unless you're wearing a backpack (and good luck finding a holster to go with that) I favor a crossdraw. I've had shoulder holsters but they seem to drag at my shoulders over the course of a day, whereas a good crossdraw rig on a 2" wide dedicated gunbelt is supported by the pelvic girdle and is hardly noticed after a bit of breaking-in. On a separate gun belt you simply unbuckle it, wrap the belt around the holster and stow it - you can still draw it from the bundle if you get a "surprise".

You got a link or manufacturer?

Most of those Simply Rugged holsters have 3 slots. It allows you to use the holster either strong side or cross-draw.

Another vote for Simply Rugged & the Chesty Puller. you ca use it as a shoulder rig, or a belt rig, and it doesn't interfere with a backpack.

I'm with Thorgrim.
I have carried a Blackhwk nearly every way known and have settled on crossdraw as my favorite by far.
Mine is a Roy's Original picked up at a flea mkt. Wish I had another for my son.

Check out Diamond D Holsters.
He makes an EXCELLENT shoulder holster, I have one for my smith and it is a joy to carry in the field.

Idaho leather makes some gorgeous stuff. I have one of his "Last Man Standing, single rigs".

"I would like to carry a handgun in the field while hunting/camping. "

Is that legal?

I second the Diamond D Leather Guides Choice holster and can't say enough good things about it. I bought one for my 629 during deer season and can't think of a reason you would have to take it off, it's that comfortable. :)

Another vote for SimplyRugged. Great holsters and a great price. Service second to none.

It is here and a wise practice. It might not be legal if you are
hunting muzzle loader or bow season. Depends on your state law.

Simply Rugged products are excellent.
