    Looking for advice on shoulder rigs. I have a Springfield Armory 1911 A1 with 5" barrel. I shoot right handed but want the holster on the left side for a cross draw application with a double mag holster on right side. But some of the ones I seen online have that setup but the pistol sits grips down. I need a grip up position as the gun is too big for a level set holster and grip end sticks out too far. has to be leather. For twenty years I carried holster on my belt, right side but last night I had a double mag pouch on left and gun on the right as I normally do. And all the weight was too much , had to crank my belt so tight that it was uncomfortable. I have carried 9mm's for 20 years, this is my first 45. I absolutely love the gun but I need a shoulder rig for carrying. Any advice on this is appreciated very much.

    Shoulder holsters are usually described as horizontal (gun barrel is horizontal, pointed behind you) or vertical (gun barrel is vertical, usually pointing down).

    I’ve never used one, so I can’t recommend a particular brand.
