    yeah I'm about to work on that now as a matter of fact...
    the other thing i've noticed, it's on my hips but i think i need to bring it a little lower cause "my stuff" is going past the barrel, heh if this thing goes off "my stuff" might get burned...

    I wear mine across the hips kinda wear a seatbelt is suppose to go on your pelvic bone. The only thing is when I lean forward the barrel hits the chair and pushes into me gut. To remendy this I slocth or sit up on the edge of the chair.

    I wear mine pretty snug, It actually makes it more comfortable. I've put a Hogue Grip on my 642 so it does print easier. i found that if i push it to the left a bit , It doesnt print as bad.

    I've thought about getting one,but I'm a small guy about 5ft5in and 150 lbs and carry a ultra carry kimber.That would make me look really well endowed so to speak,maybe it would get the ladies looking at me.sj

    but then probably not as I'm 63.

    Seriously,
    Charlie isn't kidding when he says he needs to get back to work in order to ship his orders.

    I ordered over the phone from him on Thursday afternoon and my new Smart Carry was in my PO box Monday morning.

    Extremely versatile product, IMHO!

    Welcome to the forum, Charlie! Everyone ought to have a smartcarry in their closet, because it'll never end up in the unused holster drawer. I would order the large size, and you can use Safety pins to form it to any size piece. (Make sure the pins open to the outside:)

    Smart Carry

    I have Smart Carry for my Kel-Tec P-11. I wear it slightly to the right with the barrel touching my thigh and the grip right under my belt line. The end of the grip is the only thing that occasionally prints but it is near the inside top of my pocket and really is not noticable. I am more self conscious of it. I have a big gut, 58 inch to be exact and the belt does slip down during the day. When in private I just pull it up over my gut. Not a big deal.

    The only problem I have had was when I got out of my car at Pizza Hut and started walking to the door. I felt something fall down my leg and there was the P-11 laying next to my shoe. To make matters worse, behind the window next to the door sat one of the county deputies eating lunch. I calmly bent over and palmed the pistol until I got to the door and quickly slipped it in my pocket. Not sure how this happened but it did.

    After four months my Smart Carry is looking a bit rough. I put it on pretty tight. I wear it every day and it gets alot of abuse. When a fat person sits down their waist expands. I have stretched it to its limit. In the evening at home I usually switch to a pocket carry holster in my blue jeans.

    I sweat alot and this concerned me, however the waterproof liner on the back has kept my pistol dry. Even on a hot summer day mowing the yard.

    I too thought that it would be impossible to remove the pistol when sitting in the car with my seatbelt on. Not so. I just lean back, hook my left thumb over the top of my pants and pull forward. I slip my right hand in and pull the pistol. Takes less then two seconds. Considering this is deep carry I do not consider that bad. You really do not have to pull your pants out very far, just enough for your strong hand to get started under the top of the pants. I have never tried to position it for a crossdraw in the car. Realistically, once you put this on, it would be difficult to rotate it around your waist. Your shirt would get twisted. Remember, your shirt tail is over the belt and the front is under the belt and pouch.

    I suspect that in one year I will need a new Smart Carry. Like I said due to my size I am rough on it. Others may get more use out of theirs. Will I buy another one? Absolutely.

    Just as an aside, I am going to try a tuckable IWB. Probably one from Blade Tech. I have never tried one and am just curious.

    SmartCarry is a great product, and you'll not find anybody better to do business with than Charlie.

    I once wrote a letter to the editor of a magazine, speaking highly of SmartCarry, and when it was published Charlie hunted me down and gave me a phone call thanking me for speaking up. In this day of sloppy customer service all over the place, he sticks to the old-fashioned principal of taking care of his customer.

    Welcome Charlie, and don't make yourself scarce around here.
