I love a shoulder holster for winter time. I also like it while shooting in the desert. It's more comfortable than carrying on the belt IMHO. But as a note, when you carry via a shoulder holster in winter, you're forced to keep your jacket on...so it's not for every occasion. I need one for my FNS Long slide, and one for my Glock 35. I used a rig that was made for an HK, but after adding a beavertail to the Glock, that holster won't snap closed. Even the holsters MADE for Glock won't work with the beavertail on it. So I'll have to get one special made or just check out what might work amongst an array of rigs. I definitely prefer a shoulder holster that fits a little too tight, in case the retaining strap comes unsnapped...and yes it can happen if you're actively moving around doing things. I won't use a shoulder rig unless it has a very tight fit. I'd prefer a little extra effort to pull it out than to risk it falling out in the event the strap unsnaps. I think most people wear them canted more upwards than I do, and that would reduce the risk of it falling out if the snap popped off. But I find I can conceal well without fear of printing with a more downward cant. But I personally love the shoulder rigs. On the occasions you can use it, it's a very comfortable option. I'd say it's worth the money and effort to have in the options list of which way to carry.
