Looking for a thin shoulder holster Login/Join

Need to wear a suit a fair amount and the urban environment here that is unsafe. Have a couple of thin autos and would like a shoulder holster to wear under a suit jacket. Tried IWB and don't find it comfortable as I sit at a desk or in the car. Money not the driving force, comfort is as I'd wear it all day. Suggestions?

Another vote for the Galco Classic Lite. I just ordered one for my 43X



Not minority enough!

The rough out leather doesn't grab your outer clothing? It seems like it would.

No grab for me. The surface is not overly rough.

Ritchie Leather has a great shoulder holster. They offer a pull through design on the snap.

klnullholsters makes some of the thinnest that I have seen. Have not used one though.

I had one for my Rohrbaugh. (The tailor I used back then, said it was easier to hide a small gun under my shoulder than at my waist)

HOWEVER, and I get that suits look terrible as soon as anything is in a pants pocket, I strongly suggest pocket carry.

Could just be me, but suits in a bad town, seem to attract lots of attention.

A lightweight j frame isn’t too hard to hide - I found the bumps easier to hide than the square lines of a pistol.

Does it have to be a suit? Assorted sport coats and trousers can hide guns better.

What about OWB in a sneaky Pete ? Probably not happening in a suit, though...

Another alternative: www.smartcarry.com

For me, it works great with lighter, single-stacks. My LCP disappears, the CM9 and G-43X are hard to spot.

I use this model with a slot for a spare mag:

‘Kangaroo’, type carry. Those T-shirts with a gun pocket work, some applications smart carry is ok.

One needs a slim gun to go with. Yes, access may take longer.
