Waistband versus shoulder


PDA

Since I'm concerned about carrying while driving, I am leaning towards getting a good shoulder holster for my Walther P99. Seems like the least hassle having the weapon up under my left armpit. Any reccos, greatly appreciated.

Sure seems like folks are swinging away from shoulder holsters to the waist band variety. Is there a reason for this?


Thanks

I like both for different uses. I use an IWB most of the time, but in the cooler months (in Florida there aren't too many of those) I like to carry in a shoulder holster for ease of access when wearing a jacket. I would carry in a shoulder holster more if OC were legal here.

Yes!

Shoulder holsters are the devels spawn when carrying all day in hot weather.

They are sticky hot under the straps, plaster your shirt to your body so it stays wet under them, and makes your shoulders sore when carrying a heavy gun.

For seated auto carry, a cross-draw belt holster would be the way to go.
You would also likely find a seat-belt trapping the gun in a shoulder holster.

There are a couple of dedicated driving holsters if that is what you are looking for.
