With winter weather still upon us, heavy outer garments are the order of the day. Whether or not you are a proponent of carrying in a shoulder holster, there is no denying that the Maverick Shoulder Rig by Wright Leather Works is a work of art, and conceals easily beneath the heavier coats and jackets of the season. Shown here in Walnut, one of five colors available, the Maverick differs from some rigs in that it is designed to carry single-action sidearms as John Browning intended: cocked-and-locked. Indeed, the holster’s retention strap is only long enough to span the gun’s rear when the hammer is locked back. It is pictured here with a Nighthawk Custom Falcon Commander in .45 ACP. wrightleatherworks.com
