    Barami hip grips?

    How many of you carry with or have tried Barami hip grips? I carry my 642 with 'em every so often...when I feel the need for that little tiny bit of extra concealment they offer sans holster maybe ... like as in the polo shirt may be a bit tighter than usual kinda situation.

    Do NOT use one of these in a vehicle in Ohio. On body carry in a vehicle REQUIRES a holster. Using a "Hip Grip" or a "Clip Draw" in a vehicle is a CRIME in Ohio. Somebody got arrested for a using a "Clip Draw" recently.

    Not for me (Any handgun I carry will have the trigger covered by a holster). However, I know folks that like 'em, so to each his own...

    I've used them, and in the proper situation they can be just the ticket.
    I tend to prefer a traditional holster however. My brother carried his J-Frame on and off duty using the Barami Hip Grip for years. It worked for him, doesn't work as well for me.
    I still have a set sitting around in case I need them. I probably haven't used them in ten years or more.

    The main issue I have with them is they depend solely on gravity to keep the gun in place. In a scuffle or while running you are likely to lose your gun.
