Vertical Shoulder holster question.

My experience with shoulder holsters is a bit limited. I've tried a Triple K and a Bianchi X-15. The gun would be a 6" Revolver.

The one thing that just can't seem to be overcome, no matter how much adjustment with these two is that the butt of the gun ends up pointing away from the body. The Bianchi is the better of the two, but not nearly good enough. Most of the decent designs I see look very similar and would appear to suffer from the exact same problem.

Doesn't seem like it would be all that hard to design something where the muzzel belt atatchment was oriented more forward towards the belt buckle (preventing the gun from turning out) and/or atatching a harness in such a way that it pulled the butt up tight to the body.

I've found very good belt holster designs that can pull the butt tight to the body. Does anyone know of a good shoulder holster that does the same?

Is one of those two better at keeping the butt tight to the body than the other?

I'm sorry, I can't help you with your question.

Both makers are a few steps up the ladder from Triple K and Bianchi, so they may be better. However, they may be designed to present the grip for easy acquisition, so it may stick out.

I've been able to adjust the X15 so that the grip stays close to my torso, 686P/6". I like the clamshell design, makes for a nice, smooth draw and I like the way the holster is anchored to the belt, 1.75".

I don't think a 6" tube will be comfortable, or concealable in a horizontal position.
