    I order from Charlie about 6 months ago. I found that smartcarry works so well that it is now my primary means of carrying. I seldom use IWB any more. I think you made a smart choice.

    I've heard that Smartcarry is great when standing or walking, but sitting can be uncomfortable. I'm skeptical because it just seems that having your CCW in front and sitting, for instance while driving wouldn't be very practical, especially for extended periods. How does it work for you when driving, or sitting in church or something?

    Both guns in the same holster. Is that smart concealment? LOL.

    The downside to Smartcarry is presentation time and at times, comfort. However, I don't think anyone ever advertised Smartcarry to be a quick draw holster, and it is excellent at deep concealment, which I think is the intent. I much prefer strong side IWB or a rear pocket holster, but, I'll never be without a belly band or SmartCarry .. they're just too versatile.

    That said, I've found that a large firearm with the SC can be a bit painful at times, but .. if you use a medium to small firearm, and allow it to hang at just the right length (I prefer it to be over my left thigh), it'll "fold" as you sit. You'll need to practice a bit and adjust things down there some, but it does work. Of course, YMMV. Good luck.

    How does it work for a kimber ultra carry?I've never tried one but it just seems like it would be really uncomfortable to wear,plus it seems like it would really print,how about wearing jeans?I keep getting a picture in my mind a guy reaching in his pants,which gun is he reaching for? sj

    LOL, that's hilarious. Depends on if they're both loaded or not.

    Is it any faster than an ankle rig?

    Like any form of carry, practice, practice, practice! (with an empty gun!) Like anything else, it also takes a little time to get used to it.

    Yes, to me it's faster than an ankle rig. I only use an ankle rig for a BUG, not primary carry.

    Smartcarry or Thunderwear is for those with a specific need for deep concealment. During those times, these holsters work exactly for what they are designed for. A little common sense here... obviously they don't compare to IWB or OWB holsters and no comparison should be made. Any deep concealment holster is going to be harder to get to! That's why it's important to practice with it. It's just one of many forms of carry, each with their own trade-offs.

    Itís a simple design and one I feel is worth having as an option. Personally, I donít use mine but one day a week at church.

    When you absolutely can not be discovered, I think Smartcarry/Thunderwear is a very good option!

    +1 Thumper's comments. Ankle rigs are ok in cold weather climates, but running one stinks. You can carry a larger HG and magazine with the ability to run, tumble, and wear shorts.

    Depends on how big your gun is!

    I have a pretty big gun, so I don't think the Smartcarry is for me. Although they could start making a design for those of us who do carry big ones.

    http://smartcarry.com/smartcarry.wmv

    I got the medium one cause I only plan to carry either my XDSC9m,
    .38 snub, or Kimber Ultra Cdp if I ever get it...heh The reason I got it is I have to conceal deep at work, I don't like leaving my gun in the car or in my locker. Anyways I'll let you guys know how it works out.
