I tried out a Smartcarry.
The Smartcarry came in last week. I have tried it with a few different pistols. Mine is the medium size, regular waist. I am a 36 in the waist. I still have a decent amount of dunlap.
I first tried it with an HK P2000 in 40. It is a medium sized auto, not much different in size from a Glock 19. The hammer kept poking me in the dunlap section of my belly when sitting or driving. Ditto for the Sig P245, though it was a bit more comfortable. INext, I tried my newly acquired Kimber Ultra Carry. It is a lightweight model, with the alloy frame, officer length grip, commander length slide. It was great when standing, but still poked me some when sitting or driving. It was the smallest of the three.
I also tried the HK USP Compact, in 40, with a bobbed hammer. It felt the best as far as comfort, no potruding hammer or beavertail to poke me when sitting. I did look a lot like John Holm... you know. It does tend to crush your privates with tight jeans. If you are going to wear one of these, they work well with loosely fitting pants, like khakis which I wear a lot, or loose fitting shorts, like I have on today, or maybe gym pants, which I haven't owned in years.
Lastly, I found peace with the Smartcarry today. I picked up my HK 2000 SK, in 40. It came with 2 mags and the XG grip extender for use with a 12 round HK USP/P2000 regular magazine. Normal magazine capacity is 9 rounds. This little pistol is very much the size of the Glock 27. The longer 12 round full sized HK USP/P2000 mag adds about 3/8 of an inch to the grip length. Nirvana was here. I'm sitting here wearing it, and had forgot about it until just now. I can wear it around the house all day, and never think about it being there. That is what a comfortable ccw holster should do, be forgotten about.
Would I buy it again? Yes. Is it perfect for every firearm? Not with my build. Maybe for a slimmer person, or one with much looser fitting pants, I found a used one, said to be used only one time for $35. I am going to buy it. The cost of this new one, with shipping, was $53. Here are some photos.
