I have worn a lot of shoulder holsters I can tell by looking at them with out a retraining strap you well loose your fire arm if you are doing any type of rigorous activity.

Could very well lose it just bending over. I have had fire arms come out of shoulder holsters with a better fit then what I am seeing.

They are a simple pocket type holster I would hope their pricing would reflect that.

From their website: "We only make shoulder holsters, they are the best way to carry." That's almost beyond painting with a broad brush and getting out an industrial power sprayer, hyperbole-wise.

Shoulder holsters CAN be the best way for SOME people to carry, or best way in certain limited situations for others.

That is neither of those things. What it is, is an "opinion". "Opinions" can be as right or as wrong and as extreme as the people that hold them. I am not surprised that a manufacturer of shoulder holsters "thinks" that they are the best way to carry. I would be surprised if that manufacture of shoulder holsters present that as "fact". This one did not do that. He only voiced his "opinion".

Shoulder holsters have there place and use.

One has to decide for them selves if the benefits of their use out weigh the negatives

All holsters have benefits and negatives.

If you find that you do not like one style or the another don't use it.

I carried my BUG in a shoulder holster for decades never had any trouble doing so.

I also use one for back packing, hunting and other out door use a lot. They get the gun up and out of the way real well.
