    I utilize a shoulder holster for my CCW (Deep Conceal brand). In comparing to IWB holsters, I find it much more comfortable. Also, it seems, at least to me, to conceal my weapon better, without problems of printing, etc. Access to my weapon when seated (such as in the car), is much better than an IWB holster. However, it seems that very few people use shoulder holsters for their CCW.
    What are your thoughts on shoulder holsters? Is there something I am not considering about the use of a shoulder holster?

    I think the shoulder holster has some situational advantages, and the concept has a permanent place in my own holster wardrobe. The required across-the-body draw triggers safety concerns in some quarters, and some users find them uncomfortable. To each their own...if it works for ya, use it in good health.
