Default FATMAN shoulder holster

just discovered we got black bears. They donít scare me, but I frequently have kids with me and I donít want to take a chance with a momma bear.

I am looking for a leather shoulder holster under $150 for a K,L,N frame. I am 6-1 and 325 lbs.

Thanks

Simply Rugged brand - look at the chesty puller holster. Perfect for mid and large size carry. One harness and can get several holsters as needed.

I donít know if concealment is an issue or not for you, but you might consider a chest rig for woods carry in bear country. Otherwise Iím a big fan of Galcos vertical rig. And I used an Original Jackass rig for years

I'm thinking a horizontal rig might be your best bet stature wise.

I use vertical or upside down Bianchis with good success and am not too much smaller than you. X-15s can be had cheap on ebay to see if it works then maybe you want a nicer one or two or seven.

Safariland made an upside down 4' K frame model but it used elastic to retain the gun rather than a spring and I don't trust elastic. I've seen one upside down 4" N frame but forget who made it.

You don’t need to carry, you’re big enough to wrestle the bear. ��
