    smart carry is the best for DEEP concealment. I can conceal my fullsize SIG P226 no problem. Just make sure to have a shirt that is not tucked in and your good to go. Draw is about 2 seconds slower than when I wear my IWB Comp-tac holster but like I said, it's for DEEP concealment. When I go to weddings I wear the smartcarry.

    Just my .02

    I have a Smartcarry that fits both my S&W J-Frame (with 2 Speedloaders in the opposit pouch) and my Springfield 1911 Ultra Compact (1 Magazine in opposite pouch). in the right circumstances, it's great. Deeper concealment, but hey, that's what it's for. I met the Co. Prez one time, and he carries a FULL -SIZE 1911 in his.

    The one thing I'd recommend with Smartcarry: If you are carrying with it, especially in warmer weather, and plan on sitting, "powder up" down there...Sounds funny, but having the gun-holster resting on your parts, can make ya feel like you need to "Shift" all the time. I know, maybe "TMI", but I figured I'd share info.

    I don't know much about Pager Pals, so I'm not qualified to comment.

    Hope this helps,

    RW

    Big thumbs down on Pager Pal. I bought a large and a small one at a gun show one time. Found there was no practical reason to use them. Of course, while they may be uncomfortable, they are slow.
    A pocket holster is much better for a BUG, and a high quality belt holster, IWB or OWB, is VASTLY superior for carrying a full-size handgun.
    Cheers,

    I've used a Thunderware holster for over 10 years now, and am very happy with it. I can tuck away a Kahr K40 and a spare mag all day with the right elastic top shorts. I've tried it out with jeans, and it didn't work out as well. If I weren't quite as round, it would work out better. I can stuff a Glock 22 in the thing, but a gun that size carried in that holster may attract unwanted (or wanted ) attention.

    The only problem I've ever had with it is reaching across the open tailgate of a pick-up truck while wearing one. That'll wake a guy right up.

    The keys to winning a gunfight are first to bring a gun and secondly to take your time, quickly.

    Always remember that if your opponent is within range, so are you.
