Guns and Gear - Shoulder Harness Pic

The shoulder holster offers a number of specialized advantages including not having to wear a belt, your firearm can be drawn in a quick and very inconspicuous manner and it takes the weight of the firearm off your hip. Many hunters like using a shoulder holster because it allows them to keep the gun under their clothing and safe from the effects of bad weather. It also allows your gun to be carried in a place where it's less likely to snag on limbs, brush, etc. The shoulder holster is also practical if you find yourself in a seated position and need to draw your firearm. It can be difficult to draw your weapon out of a belt holster, especially if you're strapped in by a seat belt.
