Leather Shoulder Holster For Concealed Carry

The Shoulder Holster is a robust and sturdy shoulder rig for whatever life throws at you. Comprised of only the finest quality vegetable tanned cowhide available on the market today and meticulously handcrafted specifically for both you and your firearm. Available either vertical or horizontal, The Shoulder Holster comes standard with a whole suite of features. Our thumb break has a crisp, clean snap and in no more than a moment’s notice your firearm can be in your hands and ready. Whenever needed, two extra magazines rest on the opposite side. The harness is completely adjustable to find the perfect fit for you, and the belt retention ensures your holsters stay where they are supposed to be. If you choose to upgrade to a suede lining we will add it to only the holster and not the harness itself. When unmatched comfort and a readiness for anything is required, look no further.

Concealed Carry Shoulder Holster

Our leather shoulder holster is easily concealed under a jacket, sport coat, or button down. The leather tie downs ensure that the holster and mag holder remain concealed and in place throughout your day.

Comfortably draw and re-holster the firearm...  

Made specifically for each firearm, our holsters are individually built for each pistol, to ensure that each holster has excellent retention and fits like a glove. During the fitting process, your holster will be molded with a hydraulic press to form the shape of your firearm - your holster will fit like a glove.  

Leather with “Gentleman-like traits”...

Our holsters are soft & strong, yet quietly ready for anything. We pride ourselves on offering undoubtedly reliable holsters that are comfortably casual, even while under pressure. The water resistant finish provides protection against rain, sleet, and snow. Our leather holsters age with a natural patina and will enhance with wear.

Field tested by Dads, Cowboys, Professional Athletes, Game Wardens, and by our nation’s war hero's, our collections will outlast and outperform all. Like a great hunting dog, our holsters are there when you need them.

holster for my 44 magnum

as with all my purchases so far from Southern Trapper I'm extremely happy. The holster is amazing, the packaging is second to none, and the customer service is always top notch. I can't wait for my next package to arrive

Happy "Pants Up!" Sooner

The Shoulder Holster ... I am 64 years old, and more and more my outside the house attire is a bit more dressed up than it used to be (casual unlined cotton sportcoat or wind breaker for restaurants and just tooling around; a medium-weight insulated vest with cooler weather - so I have more and more opportunities that call for shoulder holster vs some kind of waist holster (with the frequent pants-hitch-up that accompanies it). Pros... - beautiful craftsmanship - rides light and close to the body - easy to adjust to a good fit - easy to get on and off (weirdly, some other shoulder holsters aren't) - holster arrived sooner than originally promised Cons (minor) - I am an aging bodybuilder, and like to carry my holster a bit lower than people with less upper body bulk, so that the holster doesn't get pinched/print between my arm and lats. This puts the holster and mag carrier closer to my belt, which makes the tie down straps way too long, with much of the strap beyond the screw just waving in the breeze. But I am not anxious to cut the strap. Still puzzling on that. - I would like to see a secondary method of tie down be a clamp or hook that could be used and unused without taking off my belt. I will probably conjure up a workaround on my own. A couple of very minor quibbles. But, truly, I am thrilled with this holster, and plan to enjoy it for many years to come.

Shoulder holster

Great Although I worry the adjustable rivets will work loose and be lost rendering the shoulder holster unusable until a replacement arrives After spending $400 for the holister and asking for a few extra rivets and receiving a reply, “Sorry, can’t help you.” makes ordering more foods less likely. There are many custom holster companies which I will consider

Southern Trapper

Hello Robert, thank you for sharing your feedback with me. I am very surprised to hear that you requested screws and you received a "Sorry, can't help you" in response. I employ my Chief Happiness Officer to ensure that all of our customers have a great experience. I immediately looked into your conversations with him and I see that on Monday he told you "If for any reason you do need a replacement we are happy to send you replacement screws at that time. Have a wonderful day and we hope to help you in the future!".  I am sorry if you interrupted his actions as unhelpful, however, I am certainly here to resolve this. I just emailed you a usps tracking number for a package containing several screw sets for you to use. Once you have your harness adjusted to your desirable positions, I recommend using Loctite to secure the screws in place, this will prevent any screws from unintentionally backing out.
