    IWB holster

    I have owned many IWB holsters and have always thought that the concealment could be better. So many are bulky and can be easily seen unde a t-shirt. I recently bought a Versacarry IWB holster. I can say with certainty that this is the best, most concealed holster I have ever owned. No extra bulk and just enough "material" to secure the firearm firmly. If anyone is looking for an easily concealed holster, give Versacarry a shot (no pun intended). My choice for an IWB concealed carry holster was Versacarry.

    What's with all these VersaCarry trolls this week?

    The more links they get from gun-related web forums, the higher they wind up in Google searches. That's why many forums don't allow links in messages until you reach a certain post count, so new troll accounts like this one can't post links for their terrible unsafe holster

    What good is a holster that doesn't cover the trigger. You might as well just stick it in your pants naked and see what it blows off.

    Not sure about that BSA. I've been carrying quite a long time and never had a problem with a good leather IWB holster. I've used Bianchi in the past and currently use Galco or Milt Sparks. I'm only 5'7" and #165 but have no issues concealing a 1911 at 3:00-4:00. That Versacarry appears very unsafe and violates a couple of rules for holsters. I'll pass . . .

    Definitely not for me. I like my pistols' frame & slide covered at least a little bit. At least it appears that the trigger is covered. From both sides?

    I agree 100% I first saw these suggested in my Facebook news feed. They never show a picture of the inside of the rig. I left a comment of concern asking if there was anything to protect the trigger. I never received a reply. So I take that as a know and they must realize that it is a major design flaw.

    If this is unsafe, why hasn't a moderator removed the link from the post yet? They just keep racking up hits as everyone that visits this thread clicks on it to see what all the hubbub is about.

    I carry daily, seven days a week. Much of that time is in an IWB holster. I have several, all leather, and they all work well for me. As long as they have a leather flap that keeps the sidearm away from my skin and a guard over the trigger, I am happy.

    If one has a gun on their side while wearing a t-shirt, either the t-shirt will be a few sizes too large or else the gun will show.

    Also, leather does not scratch guns as does plastic and things that go click.

    Hits don't equate to sales.
