It's a ThunderWear, actually. I included SmartCarry in the title because (as far as I know) they are very similar.
Friends, how do you wear one of these? Grip located behind the belt, right? Every time I do this, the gun slips down (probably the pressure of the belt forcing it down) so the grip is just below the belt and it prints. What am I doing wrong?
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
you can wear it farther down too depending on how baggy your pants are, I wore mine around the house this weekend under a pair of gym shorts...nobody was the wiser til I asked my dad if he noticed anything. if you're LOOKING for a gun...you may be able to tell, otherwise you'll think it's just a large...package. If someone's staring at my crotch long enough to decide if I'm packing or not though...I've got bigger problems...unless it's a member of the opposite sex!
I wear mine with the top of the grip just above my belt, but with the shirt tucked in, but bloused a bit to conceal the grip. It might take a fraction of a second longer to pull my shirttail out, but the gun is higher, and it's much less noticeable.
I think you are wearing yours too loosely. Follow the instructions found on the SmartCarry website for wearing one. Mine is not my favorite method of carry but sometimes it is the best option.
I tend to wear loose fitting trousers (mostly jeans or dockers) and prefer those with pleats in the front (just personal comfort preference). Wear my Smartcarry carrying a Ruger SP101 with the revolver's grip below the line of my belt. Keep the shirt tucked inside the SmartCarry. I just do not get printing and access is easy and relatively quick. Works for me

I wear mine just like the inventor does. Check out Charlie in his skivvies:

When measuring for a smartcarry the site says to measure around the widest point of your hips. I'm assuming it's around the but area but I'm waiting for someone to let me know exactly where to measure for best fit before I order one. Pics are a plus on the exact spot to measure.
"Fear is nothing more than an emotional response to the perception of danger coupled with the belief that I can't handle it."
"If you change that belief to 'I can handle it', you'll no longer experience FEAR. You'll simply see what you are facing is a challenge... an opportunity to test yourself.
I wear mine with dress slacks most days with the handle of my Kimber Ultra CDP just below the belt. You may need to tighten the strap in the back and adjust the height to get it just right for your body.
It took me a couple of weeks with various adjustments, but I concur that it is a great way to carry. I've had to speak before several groups of 70+ and no one knew I was carrying.
No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.
I've been considering investing.
Would I have to invest in a new bunch of larger pants if I did?
I am always carrying with Smartcarry and have a 32" waist, I got a small and would not want a larger one. Its the best way for me to carry, I like it. Grip is just below belt, and nobody has seen print of gun.
