    I have a ClipDraw and used it for some time on a M1911. It's quite handy and unobtrusive on the firearm. I carried as usual - Condition 1 - IWB with no problems. The pants protect the trigger guard until the pistol is drawn. Drawing properly with the finger off the trigger is as safe as any other holster. There's no additional safety issue with the ClipDraw that doesn't exist w/other holsters if used properly. There's no substitute for practice and training. Mechanical safeties make a poor substitute.

    I switched to a Milt Sparks VersaMax 2 because the ClipDraw only reliably supports uncanted carry and I was more comfortable with an FBI cant. Also, the VM2 provides leather between the slide and my body when I'm carrying under a t-shirt in hot weather, thus protecting the firearm from perspiration. Otherwise, I'd still be using the ClipDraw.

    As far as concerns about the strength of the tape bond, I cannot recall where I found the article, but a gun writer performed a host of tests (freezing, Hoppes soaking, etc.)and was amazed at how the bond remained in place. (Perhaps a more industrious soul can find it) I certainly understand skepticism, but I can personally attest that the tape holds perfectly and that for the right firearm it is a great system.

    The clip is how I carry my P-3AT. It works, and it hides completely in the least amount of clothing you can wear without getting arrested.

    I agree with both above points, I don't think I would like them.

    I believe prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance should have REMAINED in schools, and the Ten Commandments should have REMAINED in schools, courthouses, and everywhere else it was before the ACLU got involved.

    It says right on it not to use it with one in the chamber.
    And there's another reason not to use one!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Lawyer talk to cover liability. Works fine in Condition 1 for me - going on ten years. I trust my M1911 far more than any lawyer.

    I did a review of clipdraw vs supertuck for my xd a while back...oh, here it is.

    Comparison of Clipdraw vs Supertuck


    oh, it's been quite a while, and I still mostly clipdraw, although the supertuck was never uncomfortable in shorts in the summer, and I suspect is better for the gun if you consider sweat n stuff.

    Thumbs down M1911

    the 1911 has 3 safeties on it. it can be carried with the CD very easily. The Glock on the other hand has a light trigger pull with the chance of ND while putting it in your pants.

    i use a clip w/ my Keltec P11 due to it's long, heavy trigger pull but I can't think of anything else I own or want that I'd even consider it on

    Not a ClipDraw brand, but an off duty officer in my small group at church decided to move his KelTec that was being carried using the built in clip and he ended up shooting a hole in the back of his pants and the floor. I'd personally rather carry in something that covers the trigger.
