U.S.A. -( Galco’s original VHS (Vertical Holster System) was field-proven across the globe from Afghanistan to America. The VHS provides a very comfortable alternative for those who like Galco’s world-famous Miami Classic but prefer the traditional vertical carry style.

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 added comfort and concealment, the introduction of a new harness fastener system, 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 new tool-free harness fastener system offers better security, ease of assembly, and a greatly reduced chance of fastener loss.

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

The VHS 4.0 for the 4” X Frame is ambidextrous and available in tan at an MSRP of $259.

No, that’s awesome then. The article just made it sound like this rig was for X-Frame revolvers.

I never found a vertical shoulder holster like this to be very comfortable, especially carrying a large sized revolver. For me it was also difficult to draw the weapon. I finally discovered that a ‘chest rig’ worked great for carry and easy draw! I found a company in Colorado who makes unbelievable leather chest rigs Their prices are reasonable and quality is superb! They’re getting popular so the wait for your rig will be longer than something bought ‘off-the-shelf’!
