Glock in shoulder holster?

Hey guys, I was gonna get a Glock 19 ( I love 1911s, I am just too broke right not to afford one) and was wondering if anyone carried theirs in a shoulder rig and if so which one?

Many times I carry a Glock 23 in a Josh Bulman shoulder rig. I also have the same holster for my commanders.
Nice holsters & Josh does a good job.

I carry my 1911 in a galco Miami Classic shoulder holster. I find it very easy to carry in this fashion, but don't get the Miami Classic, it has thin straps on the shoulders. Get something that has shoulder straps that get thicker on top of your shoulders, that my only complaint/advise.

I've carried a G22, also in a Miami Classic, off and on for some time. It balances well with the double offside mag pouch. Only problem for me is I have a bugled disk in my neck and the weight on my shoulders over a long day causes my right arm to ache.

For short periods its OK, I prefer a belt holster, open top, vertical drop.

The new "MIAMI CLASSIC II" solves that issue with wider top straps!

I've got three Miami Classic rigs (first one bought AGES ago). Two are for 1911's, one in black is for Glocks. I've got left and right holster and a double mag pouch. I've carried either single with mags or double (a 17 and a 19) for hours (all day) without any problems. Been a while since I've used it though...

I have Miami Classic rigs for my Glock, BHP, and 1911's.

You guys ever have a problem with the backstrap and the hammer? does it just go under the hammer then? How about it making the safety fall? Thanks guys.

I have a Galco Miami Classic for my Glock 21. As stated above the straps are too thin. Besides that it is a great carry rig (I use it when hunting because I am usually wearing a large jacket and bibs) but if you can find one with wider straps definitely go with that one.

I've had two Galco shoulder rigs, the Miami Classic and the Jackass. Of the two I find the Jackass to more comfortable. I ended up giving the Miami Classic to a buddy when he transferred to investigations and kept the Jackass for myself.

On my 1911's, the strap secures the weapon going under the hammer for condition one carry, and the safety (extended ambi's on mine, I'm a lefty) do not get bumped off.

Galco now states all of their holsters are expressly NOT for condition one carry. While I suspect this is just a CYA/liability stance mandated by lawyers, I can't say for certain if they've changed the strap. I doubt you could get a straight answer from them (I called, I couldn't get an answer that satisfied me). I think someone is going to have to try a current production model to find out. If it wouldn't work for condition 1, I wouldn't use it for a 1911. The Glocks of course are no issue for condition/hammer/safety.

I think that as far as the condition 1 question goes.......if it will work with the hammer down, it will work in condition one as the hammer being down will increase the length of the strap. Won't it?
