Shoulder Holster for my daughter

Recommended Posts

So my daughter wanted a shoulder holster so she could carry her Ruger LC9 and her knife without wearing a belt.

This is what I came up with...

it still needs to have the final adjustments done and the straps trimmed but I want her to were it a bit and find the most comfortable placement before she cuts the straps. The back lower strap keeps the holster and the knife/mag pouch from going forward when bending over.

Looks nice. Make sure she practices her draw and reholster motions with focus on not pointing the gun at her chest.

She has been, she's pretty good about the direction she points the muzzle.

I pity the fool who tries to break-up with her! :stare:

Yep I usually don't need to worry about her when it comes to boyfriends, she can handle herself pretty well, lol.

She usually carries IWB but this is for when her pants either don't have belt loops or are just too tight for her normal mode of carry, although knowing her it may become her EDC time will tell.

I have carried in a shoulder rig but they have always been more out of necessity,  I prefer IWB carry, but alot of women's pants seem to be made as tight as they can get them or the belt loops are tiny and won't fit her gun belt, at least the non Jean's type and she tends to wear jean's less than other styles of pants.

Yes, she needs to practice the draw.  I will not use a shoulder holster because my boobs get in the way of the draw, too far a reach.  Wrangler Q Baby Jeans have big belt loops and deep enough pockets for pocket revolver carry.

Thanks BHG123 I'll pass along the info on the Jean's to both her and my wife.

As for the draw I know she's working on it I have told her all I can about wearing a shoulder rig so it's up to her to practice practice practice.

She also knows a couple of instructors that may be able to help her if need be.
