    Looking for a good comfortable shoulder holster. Never had one so what is good, what is junk? Price is not a factor as I will pay for quality and comfort. For Sig P226 and P239 or G17

    Check out the 'Air Marshal 3' holster, maybe a bit different.

    Alessi. You won't even need to fool with a retention strap with the SIG's....just draw! The Glock Alessi has a different retention, due to it's trigger and triggerguard design.

    I love my Del Fatti. I don't know if he's taking orders, but it's super nice.

    I have a Mitch Rosen

    That is sold by Dillon. Mine is for my 1911's but I am going to get one for my Glocks. It is pretty comfortable adn, at $150, I doubt it can be beat. I had a Galco rig years ago and did not like it. Also, Desantis makes the New York under cover which has wide shoulder straps that look very comfortable for $170.

    Once you use an Alessi with the pull-through retention system you'll never want any other kind.....worth every penny.

    Hard to go wrong w/t suggested Galco Miami classic.

    www.barsonyholstersandbelts.com has leather SHs for under 100.00. Mine is a nylon vertical RHD as I CC on my bicycle and the horizontal holster is at a bad angle if I ever have to draw while moving. It works well for winter riding, but the imprint is just too big for mild weather.

    There is a T-shirt made w/a padded holster/strap for about 30.00. One can purchase it in sleeved or sleeveless. Saw it on youtube. Fits under a loose shirt.

    Before you spend your coin, I suggest going to your local gun shop and seeing if they will let you try a couple on. They tend to be more expensive than belt holsters, and it would be a real shame to spend the money and find you can't conceal well with it. I can't use horizontal rigs for anything but compact guns. I am average size (5'9" and 165-170lbs), not small, but I still find that any gun with a 4" bbl or longer will not conceal well in a horizontal rig. The muzzle prints through at the back of my jacket. I can use vertical rigs though. This is the sort of thing you'd want to find out before spending your money.

    I'd make sure a shoulder holster is what you need. They do have their place, but also have their cons as well.

    Alessi, Galco, Del Fatti are some really good options.

    I have a Galco Jackass rig for my 1911. It isnt a bad setup, though I wish the straps were a bit wider over my shoulders.
    The one thing I would suggest before buying a shoulder rig, make sure its something that you will use. I thought is would be the best method to carry a bigger gun, but have found that I tend to favor IWB carry with a good holster and belt, even for my full size 1911. The shoulder rig tends to get left in the closet, until hunting season, or occasionally when I am on my motorcycle.
