    Don't like it would not use it and I think it is dangerous and that's about all I have to say.

    Do they come in XXL? But seriously, I don't think I would like that band on my arm.

    maybe to try it as a thigh holster or ankle holster. but the way it points when drawing is dangerous.

    I don't know. I would hate to shoot myself in the armpit.

    Seems like it would have to be fairly tightly wrapped to keep the pistol and band from sliding down. Wouldn't that cut off the blood flow?

    From the barrel pointing (almost actually sticking into) into your armpit to the "blood pressure cuff" tension, to the probable bruise on your side from the gun rubbing back and forth every time you move your arm......

    ......There are some bad ideas out there. This is certainly one of them.

    Most of the above comments kinda mirror the ones I had. My first thought was "Isn't there a major artery around there someplace?" Looks like wearing it with one in the chamber would be a bad idea and without one, well, we know how those discussions usually go. So it looks like sneaking an unloaded weapon into someplace in a rather uncomfortable (although the website says it isn't ...) way might just be the ticket. I dunno. Don't think I'll be getting one but it's available for anyone who needs one.

    It'll obviously work (conceal) in certain applications, but the act of releasing/brandishing the weapon from the holster appears to be somewhat complicated, which will most likely create a delayed [slow] release. I assume that with extensive practice the user could become proficient and gain quick access to the weapon and release it quickly, but in order to achieve this the user is restricted to short sleeved shirt carry.

    This not only limits the user to the type of [cover] apparel, but most likely the climate it can effectively be worn in. This is just the tip of the ice berg.

    Anyway, my two copper Lincolns.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Wouldn't work with long sleeves not to mention the gun being in "sweaty" environment most of the time.

    Just a guess: I see in the VERY near future a lot of cases of AD.
