Jackass Shoulder Rig

by Gundown, from United States, KY Written on September 4, 2014
There simply is no better shoulder rig than the Jackass Rig. I have used a Miami Classic for 15 years and while it is a great system, the Jackass is better. It is light, lays flat tight to the body. The multiple adjustments allow for many body types. I use it with a compact 1911....
Pros:
  • Lightweight and comfortable.
  • Looks great,
  • carries well
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Mine is 11 years old

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on November 13, 2013
Looking at the reviews made me look up when I bought mine. It was Dec. 2002. I got thousands of miles on this one and it still looks like the day I bought it. My Sig P245 is not light and this rig makes it easy to handle and draw also makes carrying extra mags easy. I dont know why so many of you feel you need tie downs. I bought them and never use them but then I don't wrestle with felons either. Adjustment is just a matter of trying it a few ways and seeing what works. Once you find the setting you like the rig will feel very natural but your shoulders might get tired of the weight. It is easy and quick to don and take off but concealment can be a problem in the hot weather. Usually I switch to a different holster then.
Pros: very secure carry, cant lose the gun
Cons: not always easy to conceal...
Would recommend: Yes

Great way to carry! Love this rig.

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on September 16, 2013
I love this shoulder rig. All other shoulder holsters are measured against this product. Most fail to hold up.

I especially love this for wearing in the Fall and Winter, even into the early Spring. It sits well, distributes the weight of my Glock 23, it doesn't print, and isn't bulky.


Pros: Most comfortable way to carry. Especially in the cooler months...
Cons: It's a bit pricy and requires a jacket/shirt...

Where's the quality gone?

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on August 2, 2013
Galco was a name I trusted for years but the last two holsters I bought based on that trust have been a let down. I bought a new Jackass rig for my P220 because it is easier on clothes than hanging my P220 from a belt. I can't even make this one fit the gun. The tension screw for the mouth of the holster is too short. The gun will not fit into the holster with it barely connected. The starting leather gun shaped-form does not match the shape of the 220. Its a waste of materials. ...

Fantastic Quality and Easy to Conceal

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on June 14, 2013
This shoulder holster is exactly what I wanted and needed for those days when I wanted more firepower at hand. The holster and magazine carrier broke in fairly easily over several days and now a week later it is like butter.

I am using this for a PT92 and carry it with the 19rd extended magazine and 2 spare 17rd magazines yet I am still able to conceal it under a button down without much difficulty.

I've gotten the holster adjusted so well that the tie downs aren't necessary for every occasion but they go a long way in keeping everything where it should be at all times and I would recommend getting those with this rig.

Drawing from this holster is very easy but takes practice to get it right just like every new holster. The magazine carrier certainly takes practice as it is far tighter than the holster although I suspect it will be much easier with time.

I really do love this holster and I can't wait for it to get a little cooler in Texas so I can wear it more without risking heatstroke. I can't recommend Galco and this shoulder holster enough!

Pros: Quality construction, light weight, good instructions, easy to coneal
Cons: Doesn't include tie downs ...
Would recommend: Yes

Galco Jackass Shoulder Rig

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NY Written on April 20, 2013
Overall great product and the price, I guesss you get what you pay for right? Set up was very easy, I set up the straps for the tightest fitting (being I'm slim) and made one adjustment after for a more downangle carry and greater concealability. I highly recommend purchasing the Draw EZ along with the rig, it most definitely helps "loosen" the fit, the ease of draw and return to holster.
Pros: Easy Setup, Comfort
Cons: Somewhat pricey, Holster fit...
Would recommend: Yes
