    Smart Carry,I'm now a believer !!

    I've seen them at gun shows, heard about them in this forum, but I was SKEPTICAL that this thing could conceal well, be comfortable, give fairly easy access and NOT harm some of my most vital organs in the process.

    Decided, I'd give one a try, after all, had a 60 day trial period.Ordered it, it arrived promptly and I just as promptly tossed it in the drawer.
    Several weeks passed, before I remembered I'd better try this thing, before my 60 day is up. SO last night I did.

    Unwrapped it, READ the instructions and tried it on. Okay, fits nicely, reasonably comfortable enough, now let's put a gun in it. Kahr K40, G27, SP101, Keltec P3AT. They ALL fit nicely, secure, fairly easy access with a bit of practice, and NO printing to reveal that a gun was hiding on my body.

    Would not be my first choice of carry option, but it certainly can be the last, when a holster can't be worn on a belt, no cover garment or a pocket is available. It's easier to reach than an ankle holster.
    I'm sold. THANKS to those that recommended this very handy and useful carry option. Might be just the thing for my wife.

    Right on! It's great to have this option in your holster collection!

    I use mine when I have to dress up and wear pleated pants. It hides my 642 very well. It deffinatly has its place in the holster drawer.

    Good choice. It works great when around the house with no belted pants on.

    By the way, wearing mine right now with a Glock 27 and spare magazine!

    My wife said it's a good thing that it doesn't show or it might be considered "false advertising"!

    I'm thinking she might have just insulted me?

    It comes in really handy during stomach flu season too; you can pull it up to belly-band level so there's nothing showing under the stall dividers while you're "passing a gun control law."

    They also work very well as a money belt (everyone here old enough to remember what a money belt is?), especially when you're vacationing somewhere that is not CCW friendly.

    The only problem I've had with my Thunderware is when reaching across the open tailgate of a pick-up truck. That'll get a guy's attention RIGHT NOW.
    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.

    Smartcarry is about my only carry option when I am at work.

    It is a great holster when more traditional carry methods are not viable.
