I actually used a shoulder holster until I felt comfortable drawing from the waist.


Escape is not always the safest path.

Perhaps you should stay out of harm's way until you heal.


Thanks,

Could you use a mouse gun in a Velcro'ed holster inside your sling?

Pocket gun in a holster in your left front pocket.

Start practicing now with drawing and firing using only your left hand.

I carried a J frame in my left front pocket for months after surgery on my right arm.

Yeah, another vote for this.

I actually practice with my offhand from a pocket draw, because sometimes my BUG resides there. It's kind of comforting to be able to reach in and put my hand on the grip in a sketchy neighborhood.

With a green laser on the P938 I can hit just about anything in 21 feet or less off handed even from my hip.

There is no injection, or pill, that will cause you to be proficient with your left hand. Train lefty, starting yesterday.

A natural left-hander, and somewhat ambidextrous, I trained to be reasonably ambidextrous with handguns, from the beginning, and chose to carry "primary" on the right hip. Pulling a trigger is caveman simple. My reloads are FAST! Wink

If you need a lefty non-railed P229 holster, quickly, I will look through my old holsters; I may still have one or two.


Have Colts, will travel

Buy a right handed holster and practice

that's what I did when I had my shoulder surgery

I even started shooting matches right handed and the IDPA guys made some exceptions and let me do 1 handed reloads, I even started loading mags with 1 hand so I wouldn't have to ask for help.

Been there exactly. I was lucky to have regularly practiced off-handed drawing and shooting for most of my adult life. I just bought a wrong-handed Don Hume JIT for my M&P Compact. I almost always carry a J-frame in the left front pocket anyway, so no change was necessary there.

Hang in there. Shoulder surgery sucks and takes a long time to heal. How about I Karma you a Don Hume JIT for the pistol of your choice?

I'm in my sixth week after shoulder surgery. Gonna be a while before I can shoot. Hang in there. Plus waiting on my Tennessee renewal carry permit to come in. I need to practice some more weak hand anyway.
