I have a S&W 329 PD. I currently carry it in a crossdraw holster on my pack hip belt, but I've been looking for something different. I am trying to decide between a chest type holster or a shoulder holster.
In the past I carried my Ruger SBH in a Alaska Sportsman chest holster but did not care for it due to sweating under the large nylon surface area and the strap causing my shoulder to ache under the pack strap. Is the Diamond D leather chest holster any different? It seems like it would be better, but I'm hoping some of you can provide a direct comparison. Also, how compatible is the Diamond D with a pack? No interference? Always having to adjust?
My other question is how does the Diamond D compare to a quality shoulder rig from Bianchi or Galco? I'm guessing the shoulder rigs have more of a tendency to interfere with pack straps but I would like to know your guys thoughts.
I've read through several posts on the forum and I am leaning towards getting a Diamond D, but just want to make sure I'm not going to duplicate my experience with the Alaska Sportsman or miss something in a shoulder holster. Thanks for your help!
