Classic carry method. Modern concealment.

Shop Spectre Shoulder Holster

With the surge of concealed carry, we decided it was time to look backward and revisit some timeless styles and designs to see if we could update them with modern materials and construction techniques. A shoulder holster once was the de facto method of concealed carry. Everyone from movie heroes to everyday people carried their guns in a shoulder rig.

And yet, the shoulder holster seemingly has fallen out of favor in recent years. Perhaps it’s due to new materials such as Kydex and carry styles such as Appendix IWB. Maybe it’s because most shoulder holsters are made as cheaply as possible, with little attention to the critical details.

It's just another piece of poorly constructed nylon destined to be forgotten in a drawer. For the longest time, shoulder holsters were hamstrung by inferior retention systems, poorly thought-out harnesses, and bad finish details.

But at GunfightersINC, we hope to change the trend of poor fit and poor materials. We’ve returned the shoulder holster to the drawing board and fully re-engineered it to be a viable option for modern concealed carry techniques.

We designed the Spectre Shoulder Holster to carry your firearm at a 30° angle for the fastest and most efficient draw possible from a shoulder holster. We have been extremely dissatisfied with typical shoulder holster designs on the market – most orient the holster horizontally or vertically, making for unnatural angles to draw and reholster.

We also wanted to reduce issues of both printing and flagging that traditional shoulder holsters present. Having the firearm carried perpendicular to the body creates the least natural angles for the pistol lines to flow with the body, creating pronounced shapes printed through cover garments. By running the firearm at an angle, we can take advantage of the natural curvature and musculature of the body, resulting in maximum concealment.

Anyone who has spent extended periods driving a vehicle or sitting at a desk while wearing a traditional OWB or IWB holster knows that it’s a recipe for discomfort. To compound the issue for right-handed shooters, the seat belt buckle is often exactly where your pistol is, making a smooth draw near impossible. For some, anatomic issues or past injuries make belt carry undesirable or even dangerous. Not everyone wants to carry a pistol on their hip. We are excited to offer something that pulls the shoulder holster into this century.
