    Looks usable, and NRA evidently needs the money...

    Galco Fletch high ride, just far enough back so that I can get my hand into my pocket. Does not print or poke.

    Here's a thread on Galco quality that I posted on another forum; you might have to join to see the images. And because my viewing is set up for latest post first, my thread starter may or may not come up on the link I've provided:

    I know quite a bit about holsters in general and the Galco company in particular, so the thread is not so much a review but more an endorsement.

    Yea I am how shall we say, portly and IWB holsters do not work good for people like me. My pants are very full of me and don't really have room for other stuff unless I buy bigger pants. I am definitely a OWB kind of guy.

    Thank you very much, that answers my question perfectly! I'll probably try a Galco next. And I'm already a member on that forum, so no problems with the images. Can you recommend a particular model for CCW of a DS? I noticed you're in Australia so I understand you may not know too much about that unless you are/were LE (shame what happened to you folks, you're welcome here in Texas any time).

    I carry my PPS snubby in a DeSantis pocket holster. In SW FL the weather is very pleasant or very hot year round, so wearing a lot of clothes will just make me miserable. I wear baggy shorts with no belt and loose fitting t-shirts every day. The holstered snubby is comfy in my pocket and shows no printing. FL is not an open carry state (yet), so discretion is in order.

    I like a very simple(as few buckles and snaps and ammo carriers and any other crap) as possible, shoulder holster, for carrying my handguns including the snub nose, 4" and 6" revolvers, and also semi autos.
    But, I rarely carry a gun in the City because I try to stay as far away from Urban areas as practical/ possible. So people that have the unfortunate circumstance to be in a City a lot, may have different ideas about carrying concealed guns.
    Most of my time with guns are in the woods and going up and down mountains and any guns on a belt tend to pull my pants down, and I am constantly having to adjust them. That is extremely annoying so I like shoulder holsters. I can grab small saplings when I need to help pull myself up a steep mountain and with the shoulder holster,they don't hinder me at all, I hardly know it's there. They are just the most comfortable and practical rig to wear,where I go.

    'Pocket Carry' and no Holster is my own preference...and, this assumes a Bobbed Hammer ( of course ).

    2nd in line preference wise, is 'IWB' 11:30 O'clock, via a Holster which has a Spring Steel 'Clip' which clips on to the Waist Band of me Trousers, with a Hawaiian Shirt or other Shirt style which one leaves not-tucked-in, or in cooler climes, with a Sweater which goes down past the Waist line...and, this then is usually alright with a Spur Hammer, as long as one is mindful in how one is going to draw.

    If one has obliging attire or preference for a Shoulder Holster, why not just carry a full size something or another? Like Government Model in .45, or a Browning High Power? Or a Big Bore Revolver?
