    Yesterday I ordered a Galco shoulder holster from Ebay. Got what I thought was a good deal... until I received an email stating that my order was cancelled and money refunded to my account. Why you ask? Well, get this, apparently shoulder holsters are illegal in West Virginia (per the estore). When I asked them for an explanation they said that "it is what their computer said".

    :steamed:WTH??? I can go to my lgs and get them (but not at the same deal).

    Rant over.

    I feel your pain. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, so I know all about the "restrictive" gun laws. Needless to say I am MUCH happier here in WV but the shoulder holster thing really twisted my colon.

    Try Amazon. I just got a DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster for my Nano for only 19.95.

    I sell a lot of items on ebay, and I was surprised what's not alowed for sale in some states. I have no idea where ebay gets their banned item list from. Shoes and clothes are typically items that give me trouble. Can't sell boots that remotely resemble a major name brand in CA. They let me sell knives to 35 states, but no bayonets. Ebay has lots of quirks, but it a great place to make money and get hard to find items.

    Their computer is wrong. Shoulder holsters are not illegal in WV.

    I will agree, in that, if you don't have experience with a shoulder holster, try one before buying. Most people do not know how to correctly draw from a shoulder holster and end up sweeping pretty badly.

    Also, As said before, I would also try Amazon.

    That's bull****. I don't believe there is such thing as an illegal holster...but I suppose I could be wrong?

    Actually, there is such a thing as an illegal holster. If the holster disguises the gun as something else, it can be construed as creating a a title II AOW. This would be illegal without a tax stamp and accompaning paperwork.

    I also got what I thought was a good deal on a Galco holster for my EMP40 the other day and then the next day I get an email stating that they don't have anymore in stock and refunded my money. I also was like WTH?? Do they not keep track of what's in stock?

    I remember hearing "wallet holsters", with the trigger exposed are AOW's.

    Great advice for sure. And I wore a shoulder holster for a couple of years and it was quite comfortable. All I really wanted was one for a different gun.

    Same.


    I would give a shoulder holster a shot during the winter, but they're pricey for something I wouldn't use much.
