    Considering buying one of these... but I've run into an issue. Every picture I've found so far is of the holster-side of the rig on a human being, or the entire rig in a pile. I know the X-15's got an offside strap, but does it form an X-harness or no? Main concern is if it rides the neck, I'd prefer it to be below the neck for t-shirt use.
    So... any information/pictures y'all have would be much appreciated.

    The off side is just an elastic loop. It goes across the top of the shoulder then under the shoulder back to the leather harness. I have one for a 6" Colt Python. They are good rigs. I found that a police belt keeper on the off side side helps keep the elastic from "cutting" into the under arm and shoulder. You have to adjust the elastic and belt keeper to fit your style.

    Thanks for the info! Also - does your model for the Python also fit semis like the 1911?

    No it doesn't. The 6" Python holster is far to large for the 1911. I believe Bianchi does make an X-15 for the 1911.

    Pix?

    Agree, stock photos do not show how this works! Can anyone please post additional pix or give feedback and opinions on this holster?

    I carry a Makarov in an X-15 Med/Sm and it is my preferred method of carry ... if you're concerned about the fit of a Bianchi Holster you need to visit their site where they list which size holster fits which gun ... if you shop around you can get a Bianchi X-15 for a great price ...

    How concealable, secure and comfortable is it? I'm looking at one for a small Colt Mustang.

    I've got an X-15 for a 6" S&W N frame. It carries nicely, and makes a revolver that size disappear under a jacket.

    I was looking for one for my 4" Mod 29, but Bianchi says they don't make them in that size anymore. I was disappointed to hear that and have been looking for a similar product. Not sure why they'd just stop making them, but that's what they told me.
