I picked an Akers Comfort Flex shoulder holster for the 1911. What I have discovered is this. The thumbsnap goes right to the edge and slightly over the thumb safety. ( Kimber pistol) If the thumb strap gets moved ever so slightly, it clicks the safety off. I can't do pics right now. I may try later. Has anyone encountered this with a shoulder system?

A little follow up. My Springfield doesn't have this issue. The thumb safety doesn't stick out as far.

I own an Alessi Bodyguard shoulder rig for my 1911 S & W gun & it has a pull through Snap that was designed by the late Lou Alessi so there is never any problems carring it in Cond #1 & fusing with any thumb snaps etc. that may interfere with the gun's saftey etc.

The safeties on some aluminum framed 1911's loosen up pretty quickly. Probably because aluminum is relatively soft.

I have a Galco Miami Classsic II and even though Galco has a short warning about carrying your pistol in safe condition as the manufacturer recommends, the thumb break can be snapped while in condition one. You just need to stretch the leather a bit as Galco instructs you in the documentation. No issues with the safety on my steel Kimber

Yeah, this holster is used but used very little. I was wondering about it stretching out some. It can't fire, but it's just kind of un settling drawing it out to put away with the safety off like that.

One more reason I carry a Glock in my Galco Jackass rig: no external safety issues!

The last thing you want to do with nice leather is cut it because it doesn't fit before break-in. Follow mfr break-in instructions.
