Professionals who carry a firearm as part of their daily work recognize Galco's Shoulder Holster Systems as the most comfortable and concealable in the world. After all, Galco has spent the last three and a half decades perfecting them--and they haven't stopped searching for ways to make them even better! After a number of helicopter pilots in LE Air units briefed us on their special needs, Galco turned their attention early in '04 to designing a new Vertical Shoulder Holster System. The combined features from Galco's Miami Classic Holster with a traditional vertical shoulder holster into a system that's perfect for 21st century in-flight LE and Emergency Personnel. It allows comfortable carry, and can be worn exposed over a flight suit in emergency room settings without alarming civilians with an exposed horizontal muzzle. The VHS has been field tested over military BDU's and general hunting clothing as well, with great success. And although they did not set out to create another concealment rig, Galco discovered that they did!--it's hard to break away from one's roots. The new VHS provides the long-awaited alternative for those who want the concealment of the Miami Classic but, for what ever reason, prefer the classic vertical carry style. This holster component is constructed of premium saddle leather. A harness and ammo carrier CAN BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY. The Vertical holster component was designed to function without a holster side tie down and will not accommodate one. For these and other VHS accessories and components that may be purchased separately, see shoulder system accessories. The Vertical Shoulder Holster is ambidextrous, in tan or black finish.
