I use a Desantis OWB holster, I think it is called a scabbard thumb break, for my Beretta 92 (pretty much the same gun). It is quite comfortable, and holds the weapon securely. I would not use it for concealed carry with just a tee shirt, but it conceals reasonably well under a jacket or similar garment.

For a shoulder holster I would recommend one with a tie down on the non-carry side. My experience with the one I use for my 1911A1 does not have this feature and after an eight, ten, or twelve hour day the off side strap cutting into the arm pit can be rather uncomfortable! My other rig is a "Tri-vertible" which can be worn as a vertical or horizontal shoulder holster with an adjustable strap on the off-side, or a OWB style although for an OWB holster. I still prefer a good leather holster in the pancake style or a paddle style. The latter makes it very easy to remove if you need to go somewhere that you cannot carry and yet is quickly replaced when you return.

With the above comments taken with a grain of salt the end choice of a holster is a very personal one and you will likely end up with a box full of ones which seemed to be good when purchased and later you will find another which appears better suited just like the rest of us on here!

The Galco Miami Classic 2 is one I personally use, and it is a high quality horizontal shoulder holster. The cost is about $150-$175 depending on where you look. It may seem like a significant sum of money, but the price of a gun belt, leather OWB holster, and mag pouch combined usually is equal. Be sure to adjust it properly so that the weapon is suspended as close to your offhand armpit as possible. The "Miami Vice" look of the gun hanging by your ribcage looks TV-Land sexy, but it is a horrible place to keep a gun intended to defend your life.

I have an older Style Galco shoulder rig that predated the Miami Vice ones they called the Jackass rig, however it works with the holsters for other Galco setups and I have holsters for my PT 92 and a 1911 compact with the 92 hanging vertically and the 1911 hanging almost horizontally. The PT 92 by the way is realeased from the holster coming straight out. It is like this one for the PT92 Galco holsters; Holsters; Gun holster, pistol holsters, western holsters, shoulder holsters, leather holster and Glock holsters and I have a tie down below it for both the magazine and holster.

I have a FLETCH for my PT1911. Nice holster, the thumb snap goes across the back between the hammer and the frame and it is pretty comfortable.

Thanks. I've got a couple of the Galco Silhouette holsters - similar to the Fletch, but it looks like the Fletch gives better protection to the sights, which is why I want to switch.
