If you don't have any luck on eBay you can check with stoner holsters. I have a couple of them. They make a good holster.

Years ago when Bucheimer was still in business making holsters, they listed a shoulder holster for the Beretta Jetfire .25 I owned at the time. That really seemed a waste of good leather. Just because they had the ability to make one didn't make it worth making but maybe someone out there wanted one.

I have a few of the Brauer Bros. NS "Quick Draw" style, you would want ANS 04.

If you have worn and love them, I apologize in advance, but I would wear a shoulder holster on a trial basis first. They are constricting [if made of all leather], they are very clothing specific and usually require a suit jacket or coat to work as designed, they are dangerous when drawing/re-holstering [the muzzle tracks across others and/or yourself in both scenarios, usually requires two hands to re-holster, etc.

I wore them decades ago on a daily basis and never found one suitable for concealment, speed of access, free motion, and that was clothing adaptable. I gave up on them within a year or so and gave them all away. None of the people I gave them to kept them after some use. The only shoulder holster I could tolerate was the USGI issue model with the 1911/Govt Model. It carried a full sized pistol well and out of the way when I spent time doing geology field research in remote areas.

Hunting handguns are a different issue altogether and I'll leave a handgun hunter to speak to those issues.

Good luck finding one that works.

Check with AE Nelson Leather. They probably can supply what you want, and the "figure eight" harness is very comfortable for long term wear.

I have worn a shoulder holster under s large shirt without printing and comfortably driving from Az to Montana and back. If properly adjusted they work just fine.
