Default Two Gun Vest Shoulder Holster Rig

A couple of sources, including "Sixguns By Keith" mentions gunfighter John Wesley Hardin as having worn a vest with holsters sewed onto it for a two gun cross draw. There are no pictures of such an outfit but in the late 1980s I made one as I visualized it. Check out this famous Hardin photo. Under is left arm I see what might be a gun imprint. What do you think? Below is the one I made and shown here before. It's very comfortable and the guns stay close to the body and don't wobble around at all. I wore this at cowboy shoots, sometimes with a pair of breaktop S&W .44s, and no one knew I was packin' when I had a suit coat on.

That's pretty cool. I've often thought about a vest for ccw but nice ones are kinda pricey for something I may or may not use.
