This rig provides the maximum in concealment and comfort. It is ideal for the business professional, or plain cloths police officer who is in contact with the public, and must carry a revolver on a daily basis.
The Guardian has been painstakingly designed and tested, resulting in a rig with no springs, no elastic, no bulky lining, no accidental loss, from “popping” out, no stitching or welts to loosen, as commonly found in many other inverted shoulder rigs.
The unique design and placement of the thumb break provides positive security, yet allows a fast, natural draw. On the opposite side of the weapon is a dump pouch or speed loader pouch. The Guardian is available ONLY for the Smith and Wesson J-Frame and the Colt 2” .

I waited forever and a day for it to arrive but there is nothing else like it. Best gun orientation for maximum concealment under the armpit while the muzzle clears the pit itself. The holster is very well designed with two secure snaps that break open easily for a confident draw. I’m using it with my S&W640 and plan to use one with my S&W351PD. The only downside is the 15-weeks I waited to receive it which is a bit over the top in my view. Even so, I'm considering an alligator version if they're able to swing it.

All I can say is "Wow"! This holster is better than advertised in my opinion. I ordered this holster at the end of July with the understanding that the wait would be 8-10 weeks as noted on the order form. It took it a little longer than that to arrive, but when it did, I was completely amazed! I went over this holster with a fine toothed comb and could not detect a single flaw in either the material or the workmanship. It is 100% leather and metal, and the leather is supple and flexible without any "creaking". Overnight, it became my favorite shoulder holster. I can honestly say that it was worth every penny I spent for it, and worth every second I waited for it! Now, if I could just get one for my S&W Model 19 2 1/2 inch barreled .357 Mag..............
