    Thumbs up My new Smartcarry.....

    Finally decided to give one a try. First, I'll say that Charlie provided excellent service and speedy shipping. First class guy.
    The holster. I have to say, even after reading how much people here like them, I had my doubts. But the darn thing works. It really works well. Drawing takes some getting used to, but I have worn it two full days now, one in the office and today, while I was out on a cleanup project in a city park.
    It's comfortable, accessible and secure. Doesn't chafe, doesn't sag or bang me in the privates. I am glad I ordered it for my P-11, though. I considered getting it for my Glock 22, but I just don't think that would be comfortable when sitting. Maybe I'll give it a try, though. I think any small to mid size frame would be fine, though.
    Great holster! Well worth the price.:kier:

    I use a SmartCarry with an M&P 45 4.5" barrel. Learning to sit comfortably was the only challenge I had with it. I learned that when I hike my pants before I sit I could just grab the SmartCarry with my thumbs at the same time. The M&P is nearly vertical when I sit. By the end of the second week of carrying, it was a natural part of my day.

    wanna see a fat man wearing it??? thought you might. It's looser fitting so I have no problem with anything up to a xd45. My regular is glock 27 and taurus 651 revolver.
    front view, normal pants.
    flattering side view. though 2 sizes smaller then I was just 5 months ago.
    Shorts, instead of underwear..family sight and all.
    outside sewing job.
    just a milk jug, cut out. Probably never need it, but i've been doing it to all my sc's for 4 years.

    I gotta say I like this idea of carry for the times to really need to conceal. Or perhaps as a starter holster so you arent as worried of being "made".

    Being male, if someone is staring at my junk Im hoping its a female, and if they see a "print" of sorts, Im hoping they just like what they see...

    No, but seriously it seems like a really good method of carry. I think I will get one along with a VM-2.

    Order them both now and the SmartCarry will arrive 5 months sooner than the VM-2!

    I use a smartcarry for my 3" colt defender and extra mag but if I'm carrying my BUG I use a cell phone pal, I find its more comfy and I can draw my pistol faster.

    I love my smartcarry! But I wear mine a little differently - it works quite well as an IWB at 3:00 for my M&P9C...

    sorry for not making my intention clear.
    Trigger guard protection.
    Some feel that with light triggers and smartcarry only being a thin layer of material, that a bit of additional rigid protection might help if something comes poking around the trigger guard area. I'm not sure it's really needed, but it's something I've done for 4 years.
    I also didn't mention, but I have ironed a patch over the area on the pants over where the butt of the gun would "show". It helps to break up the gun butt pattern. I buy new pants and I get my iron on patches from wally world. Only a few bucks and a few minutes of my time. I don't do it with jeans but with my black work and dress slacks.
