    You would need to warm up your gun first, it would be cold next to your skin in the winter.

    Being a newbie, I too don't see the concern...except maybe that it's an IWB holster that seems to need you to pull the gun into your body to get it to unlock.

    Apart from that, I would say it's an ugly holster.

    Why?

    It's at least as good as those flimsy Bianchi IWB Model 6 holsters that collapse flat when you draw the gun.

    I seemed to me they did not give me a clear enough veiw of the inter-workings of the clip and how the firearm is held in . i would need a close-up of the rig.

    Old concept, I've built several just like it over the years from Kydex using a nylon pin that inserted in the barrel about an inch to keep it in place.

    It works great. Pull the gun out and you cant even tell the holster is there.

    From the FAQ:

    22. Is the Versacarry® a holster?

    By definition the Versacarry® is not a holster. The patent pending Versacarry® is so unique, there is not a term to define it. It is a new and revolutionary concealed carry invention.

    Perfect for when I want to carry unloaded. From their FAQ (emphasis mine):

    12. Can a user carry with the Versacarry® cocked and locked?

    No, we do not recommend carrying cocked and locked. Like many in the firearm industry, we have adopted safety warnings that insure anyone who uses a firearm is safe. We can not know the level of firearm or safety training a user may have, so for safety, we recommend not carrying a loaded firearm. Any user should always fully read their firearm's instruction manual and carry under the manufacturers recommendations.

    Maybe somebody who's more knowledgeable than me can chime in because I'm not seeing anything alarming.

    Edited to admit I had a stupid moment and missed the obvious.

    As for the design, I kinda get the concept, though minimal in design. I prefer something a little more sturdy/secure and firm (good analogy for a spouse also). If I want to put my weapon in the glove box (where legal to do so), I'll just take it out of my IBW holster and keep wearing the holster. I don't buy cheap or uncomfortable holsters.

    What bothers me is the single clip retention over the belt. I'm a multi-clip holster retention kind of guy. Especially if in an active environment. How many of you have owned IWB Knife holsters that worm their way up and out on a single silimar clip retention system. Granted, a firearm should have a little more mass, and be more noticable if worming out. However, on that point, I don't want to be running around constantly flagging my weapon by having to readjust it.

    I'm not saying this is bad. I'd have to wear one for awhile before I would say I like it.

    Only some models cover the trigger guard (revolvers only?) so this is a really bad idea for carrying with a round in the chamber- hence the warning on the FAQ to not carry "any semi-auto firearm in a cocked and locked condition or with a live round". I don't see a problem with this for someone that doesn't carry with a round in the chamber. I won't be buying one.
