    Not a new idea, but I'll agree it is a flop.

    It would be cheaper to just use a coat hanger.....but basically the same quality.

    Stay armed...use a quality holster...stay safe!

    Yea, best line in the whole video.

    As far as the holster, it should be called the "Or Are You Just Happy to See Me?" holster.

    Totally NOT practical from a self-defense standpoint, but I'm thinking that gang-bangers will like it.
    At least I hope so... I'd bet my "ready to go" Milt Sparks VM2 against a "flail hands and fumble for pistol" holster any day.

    These things were junk when they were know as a Pager Pal Holster, at least they are consistent. Nice idea but poor function. Did you notice when he drew his gun the first time it hung up on his pants?

    While it is not a great holster, it would be much better than leaving the gun at home. Don't get me wrong, it isn't something that I'm going out to buy, but if you want to conceal a small gun and fool the general public, it may work out for you.

    I just find it strange that numerous people on the site talk about how great the SmartCarry is but slam this one.

    Whatever the demo-dude is using, it does appear to have a longer drop than the 'pager pals' I have seen (and no, I have not bought one )
    It does seem like the extra drop might help the usability, but I don't think I like the absence of some sort of retention.

    Anything that fits everything, tends to fit nothing.
    Says me, anyhow.
    This is the law;

    Well, I can't vouch for the smart carry, but I did try the pager pal and it was garbage.
