    I am looking to purchase a deep conceal holster and I have come across this product as well as many others like it

    I was wondering if I could get any opinions or reviews from anyone familiar with something like this?

    SmartCarry - Concealed Gun Holsters

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfW0bBgnSFw]YouTube - Concealment Holster Review: SmartCarry Holster[/ame]

    I have a S&W 638 that would be something I would use with this as I feel my XDM 3.8 9MM would be a bit too large and bulky. I have a Super Tuck Deluxe for that one

    Thanks for the info in advance

    Demonstration

    In recent months; I have seen this system up close and personal. Daughter to the family, demonstrated, I asked her to sit, stand sideways, bend, lean, and turn so I could look from the back:) ''very'' cute, by the way.

    ''daughter'' small framed, shapely, with ''lady like'' blue jeans; fitting very properly.

    Father showed up; and did the demonstration. Small framed gentleman, with blue jeans

    At no time was I able to see any sign or signs of anything. It appeared natural, and comfortable.

    About the only question I didn't ask her; when you go to the bathroom; what happens to the unit.

    I have one for my Glock 19 and G36, it is good deep concealment--very comfortable, relatively easy access, nearly impossible to detect. They are made in three sizes to accommodate a wide range of guns (I use the medium).

    The only problem is going to a public restroom--I recommend using the stall, with the holster properly positioned "in the way", the needed manipulations might look a little suspect while standing at a urinal.

    (By the way, the lower you wear the Smart Carry, the more it "disappears".)

    I wouldn't mind playing with one but I'm not sold from just the video.

    I have one. Works very well. But pants or jeans can't be too fitted, otherwise it will show.

    I also, have a buddy that was the one that told me about it, he's been using one for years and also speaks highly of them.

    I have a "Thunderwear" holster which is identical to the Smart carry.
    They are very comfortable to wear, but it is a pain in the a$$ when you have to go to the bathroom.
    I only use mine if theres no other way to carry.

    Am I the only the only one that laughed when he demonstrated how to take the "strong" hand and retrieve the gun. Insert your own joke here.

    Trust me, its not my 1st choice or even 2nd, but there are times when it is wearing this or not carrying, and it does work and is relatively comfortable.

    Thanks for the info

    yeah, a couple of things bother me,

    1) I don't want to blow off my junk

    2) I tend to drive and drink coffee, sometimes the bathroom is a panic stop :) so any hesitation in turning it loose is a negative

    with that being said, I am a short and possess a kinda duffel-bag looking build and it is hard to conceal comfortably with an IWB This would allow me to carry more often

    I was also thinking on using this holster while riding my Harley

    So far I am still undecided but am open to suggestions from other "duffel bags" on other ways to carry comfortably *grin*

    Not being a smarta$$ but what situation would dictate this giddyup or not carrying? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Mainly if I'm in a suit and am pretty sure I'm going to be taking the coat off, which is why I almost never take the coat off and just carry IWB but in summer that can get hot.... I have thought about the Crossbred but am still worried the clips and tucking the shirt around it would be noticeable.

    I have 2 Crossbreeds, one for my CZ82 and one for my XD45 and have had no issues with concealment. The clips are pretty nondescript. You can also get the Crossbreed with "J" clips that don't go over the belt.

    Try these....

    V-Clip

    The only thing that would show is the part exposed from the top of your trousers to the top of you belt which is almost nothing.

    I think this holster would work great in a pair of shorts or some kind of workout clothes.

    I don't think I would want a hard, metal, and loaded weapon right next to my "gun" while riding my Harley! :eek:

    It would indeed pose a problem when using the latrine.

    It looks like once you draw your choice of carry gun from it, you will have to undo your pants to re-holster it.

    And, now I know what Al Bundy was prepared for all those years sitting on the couch. ;)

    I don't know about that. Seems to me like it would want to slap you in the junk with every step if you went running.

    Hey, what about a jock strap with a built in holster? Anyone up for a range trip? I've got a new carry piece you can try. :eek:

    i'm thinking this device wouldn't work well for someone like me, who has dunlap disease. My belly "done lapped" over my belt. :D

    The crossbreed design is a much better option imo. :cool:

    I think that is looks to work well. But I am way to attached to my man hood to want to carry that way!
