U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Galco’s original VHS (Vertical Holster System) was field-proven across the globe from Afghanistan to America. Thousands were used by US military personnel fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Countless others are in use by US and international law enforcement, being particularly popular among police helicopter pilots. The VHS also provides an alternative for those who want the concealment of Galco’s Miami Classic but prefer the traditional vertical carry style.

Galco VHS 4.0 Holster System

After over a decade of experience with the VHS, Galco has continued to refine, update, and improve it. The VHS 4.0 brings recontoured shoulder straps for comfort and concealment, replacement of the earlier Chicago screws with a key-hole harness fastener attachment, the addition of an innovative new tie-down system, and a new spare ammo carrier for revolver fits.

A key component of all Galco shoulder systems, including the VHS 4.0, is the harness. It uses a four-point harness that pivots independently, connected by our clover-shaped, trademarked Flexalon swivel backplate. Along with our patented swivel connectors, this results in a perfect fit and lasting comfort for virtually all body sizes and shapes. The VHS 4.0 also features Galco’s improved key-hole harness fastener system that replaces the earlier Chicago screws. This gives you better security, ease of assembly, and greatly reduced chance of fastener loss.

The VHS 4.0 comes complete with vertical holster, harness, ammo carrier, tie-downs, and a set of harness fasteners. Models for autos include a vertical double magazine carrier, while units for revolvers come with a horizontal double speedloader carrier. It’s fully modular, so optional interchangeable accessories and components may be purchased separately to create a unique shoulder system all your own.

Whether you patrol the perilous sands of the Middle East, metropolitan America on the ground or from the air, exercise your Second Amendment right to bear arms, or stalk the hunting fields of the world, the VHS 4.0 will help you and your handgun stay secure in an often-dangerous world.

Made for semiautomatic pistols and double-action revolvers, the VHS 4.0 is ambidextrous and available in tan or black finish at an MSRP of $259.

That’s a pretty nice rig. I don’t wear one often mainly because of the lights attached to mine. This would be on my list though if I get my 44 I want.

For your Laser Light Combo… I use this one from Bianchi.. mine works fine. You may have to add a bit of length to the retention strap.. But like I said.. it works for me..

A great 1911 Shoulder Holster not the fastest yet fast enough is the old Military one I wore for a good chunk of my life both awake and sleeping.
