Got my Smart Carry in the mail
Hey guys. I just wanted to let you know that I got my Smart Carry holster in the mail and I love it. Here's my quick review
If your not familiar with the Smart Carry, it is a deep concealment holster that almost looks like a denim jockstrap with two pouches, one for your weapon, and one for a spare mag or speed loader, it is worn in the waistband, on the front of your body. I purchased the holster because my Galco Summer Comfort was just not doing a good enough job for my carry environment. I carry a Sig P-226 which is a large gun and it just printed too much. The last thing I want is someone to call 911 because they see a gun under my shirt.
Shipping took two days with USPS Priority mail from FL to NV. I opened the box for the Smart Carry and removed the holster.
It looks very well put together with heavy duty stitching, Velcro, and elastic. I followed the instructions and put it on. It was quite comfortable, but I noticed I was printing a great deal. That kinda pissed me off but I got over it and drove on. After a while I decided that there must be a better way I can wear the holster to prevent printing. I found that if I wear it high, the butt of my Sig will print near my waistband of my jeans which i wear a belt over. I think because the waistband of jeans and its position on my body plus the belt it is very hard to notice the print. My relatives all knew I was getting the holster and cannot detect the print even when I tell them where to look. I can wear the holster with gun and spare mag in place and have no issues with comfort.
One thing that puts people off to the Smart Carry is that they believe they are carrying it with the muzzle pointing at their junk. That simply is not true. When wearing it properly your equipment is behind the holster. The holster actually protects your twig and berries from hostile action.
Charlie, the owner of the company, answers all e-mails personally and is a dream to deal with. I cannot recommend this holster more if you need a great deep concealment rig. You are not going to get world record draw times with this, but with practice I can draw and acquire a target just as easily as when I wore my Summer Comfort. After all, if your expecting .5 second draws and double taps, you should probably buy a speed rig. But good luck CCing that!
