i saw this the other day. seems...different. and the lady at 41 seconds need to work on her grip.

From the looks of the videos you are basically stuffing part or all of the barrel inside your bra. I'm pretty sure that's not going to work for me, even with a smaller gun. Stuffing anything in there for a day is not going to be comfortable. I never ordered one because I read a lot of not-so-great reviews about it not fitting or being comfortable, and because I like to carry a Glock 19, which will not fit. I'd like to know if anyone actually uses one of these every day.
Supposedly you can use it as an IWB, too.
Love the video. Don't know if am quite enamored with the concept.

I have to wonder if this would be very comfortable.
Yes, wearing a gun should be comforting, not comfortable.
It's an interesting concept. I just wonder if the execution is perfected.

1. All guns are always loaded.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
If there's no other way to carry concealed then this would have to do the trick, but I can't imagine it would be comfortable at all. If I'm not mistaken, the pistols they were using could probably be just as easily concealed in the pocket, too, or in a belly band, which would seem to have more application.
I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

FWIW, I have met Lisa Looper, the lady in the video, who is also the owner. she and her husband operate Looper Law Enforcement holsters and I ran into her at her booth at last year's NRA meeting.
She was demonstrating the rig and the others in that series and we talked for awhile about them. I ended up buying one for my wife, who loved the concept, but found it a bit intrusive on her frame. Wifey is 5'5" and fairly well endowed, and for her, it just wasn't comfortable. We called Lisa and she suggested the "Marylin" holster, which rides at the outside of the bra area in sort of the same general real estate that a high shoulder holster would sit....just inside the bra.
That turned out to be perfect for my wife! She loves it and wears it pretty regularly. No print, no discomfort, no problem. It sort of requires a v-neck top to be used effectively, but I never complain about THAT!
Like most holsters, the comfort level depends on the body type of the user. I doubt that these would be much fun for very slender or smaller women, but if there is a bit of ..... uh... fullness in that area, the rig might work pretty well.

I use the Flashbang with my Shield. Carry it that way probably at least 80% of the time. While its not the most comfortable thing I've ever worn, t's not bad either once I got used to it and got it adjusted just right. I'm slender/small but it works for me and has a push up effect which I can't complain about! I absolutely love that it's opened my wardrobe back up - I was getting frustrated with looser shirts with IWB. I can wear the Flashbang with most of my tank tops and no cover garment and with the FL heat I love that! It's a little hot/sweaty in the heat, I'm planning on lining the side that touches my skin with something, just need to figure out what. If I'm wearing a looser shirt I go ahead and carry IWB, usually my XD, but otherwise it's the Shield in my bra!
My wife carries her nano in a flashbang sometimes. I never hear her complain about discomfort much but she did put some mole skin on the side against her skin. With some of her outfits its her only holster that conceals well.
I should get one of these for my wife. Seems pretty easy to use.

My wife has a huge rack. This would be perfect for her.
