Product Review: DeepConcealment shoulder hoster
After posting a dilemma I had about my new job and the kind of clothes I would be wearing I decided to give the DeepConcealment holster from Active Pro Gear a try.
I got it in the mail the other day, at around $40 with shipping it wasn't too bad to swallow.
The materials used are great quality and it is fairly soft to the touch. The ordering instructions were accurate, but I did have to call to make sure that I needed a right hand holster (which places the handgun under my left arm).
It took all of 2 minutes to get it set up and wearable for my frame, then another 20 or so adjusting after certain positions. All in all about 30 minutes to make it fit me perfectly.
It holds my gun close to my body and I don't feel it slip at all when I bend over. Today I put on the retention strap just to be safe. When I walk I feel it "bounce" a little bit, but that is the elastic band and not my handgun, since I don't walk like a Soldier anymore I simply attribute it to how I walk and not the product.
My S&W Sigma .40 does simply disappear within my shirt and I now get to wear whatever belt I want instead of having to grab the 5.11 gun belts I own.
The comfort overall is fine. Every once in a while when I sit the barrel of my gun will catch some love handle in between it and my waistband and pinch me, but again that is my fault for having the love handles and not the holster's. I will always know my handgun is there; unlike when I wear my SuperTuck, which sometimes I have to check to make sure I didn't forget to put it on.
I think this holster is worth the money and time, especially if you need deep concealment and don't want to pop for a leather rig. And since I have to weak dress pants now and I have a heavier gun this is the way I have to go until I either change jobs again and can wear jeans or buy a new (slightly smaller) gun and get another SuperTuck.
I didn't post pics because I didn't think you guys would want to see me standing around in my undershirt. :blink:
