It’s supposed to be a Horizontal Holster. As the guy draws the firearm from it, it appears to be a Vertical Holster.

The baby is obviously not theirs, no strollers or anything. Judging from the back alley they are in and the way the guy is pulling his gun I think they are selling the kid on the black market, or a trading it for drugs. Nobody brings their familly to some seedy, urine soked, back alley!

I can't speak for the Galco Shoulder holster but some Galcos-including one I own-is clearly designed for the retention strap to be used with the hammer down on a 1911. Mine works with the hammer cocked but the fit is better with it down.

...all of the funny remarks, plus

the gun is on the left side in the photo, and crockett or tubbs [I forgot which is which] is carrying it is on the right side.

Thanks for the laughs and a lot of good observations. I didn't even notice the baby had red hair!
Well my big problem with it and horizontal shoulder holsters in general is as you draw the gun you tend to point it at your body parts and other people.

As he is drawing his gun he is pointing it at the woman and child (doll).

1. It's not a Glock.
2. He has his hand on her thigh and he doesn't even know her?
3. He does know her and his wife just caught him with his hand on her thigh?
4. It's his future ex and kid?

Look at the picture in the lower left corner. Hammer cocked, retention strap over the hammer.

Have you guys ever thought of being comedy writers? Excellent, funny answers.

Hey vafish, did anyone get the right answer?

Wrong. The hammer is down in that picture. Most (maybe all) of Galco's holsters for 1911s that have thumb-breaks are designed for hammer down carry of a 1911. They are designed for how the 1911 was normally carried...about 20-30+ years ago (Condition 3). A properly designed thumb-break strap should never go around a cocked hammer, they go in front of the hammer and fit snugly around the back of the slide.

Perhaps that the point. Alimony and child support cost a lot of money.

Dosei, you're right.

Looking at the same picture of the pistol and holster on a white back ground in the 2011 Galco catalog you can see that the hammer is down.

But, that is one of the funkiest shaped hammers I've ever seen. It's shaped like an elf's ear; rounded on the back side with a point that sticks straight up. The point on the hammer is located about a quarter inch back from the back of the slide. At first glance it gives the impression that the hammer is sitting in the half-cock notch.

I had a Galco Jackass rig for my m1911 and it was set up fr the strap under the hammer.

That was many years ago, though.

Beside the fact he's carrying a 1911 and not a HK?

I'll tell you what's wrong. She's got some Bill Clinton sized digits on those man hands and he couldn't help but notice! Now he's going for a package check and if she is a Cuban ladyboy, he's going to seize her leprechaun and start poppin' caps!
