    Finally found my holster.....NOT!

    I've always been open to alternative carry methods. My philosophy is that if it works, it works, and what works for one person might not work for someone else. To each their own.

    But this looks like a disaster in the works and I can't believe anyone would market such a thing:



    They sell it on their website. Someone please correct me if I'm way off base on this one.

    That one takes the idiot consumer prize of the year. Mexican carry if you wish but, at least you can draw the weapon without getting hung up in a mess of cordage.

    So nothing stopping the trigger from being pulled and intentionally place an obstruction in the barrel. Sounds safe to me - NOT.

    Innovation may be interesting but in this case I will stick with a traditional holster.

    Oh, but let's add even a little more adventure. Let's have a string that can get tangled and inside the trigger guard.

    No, but in a more sane world it would be.

    I wonder what need the inventor had to come up with this way out in left field idea to tie up a handgun in his waist with a string.

    What's his procedure for using the rest room ? Hang the hand gun on the roll of toilet paper ?

    Frankly, that's one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. The concept has been around forever and there's a reason nobody with any sense carries a gun that way.

    Makes the Versa Carry look positively safe.

    I would go back to the shoe-string method before using that.

    The money you'd save could be put towards the medical bills when the inevitable ND occurs.

    Oh wait... If you can't make a safe holster, you just need special rules for its use:

    WARNING! The Handgun Sling is NOT a safety device nor does it claim to have any safety features. Never use The Handgun Sling to carry a firearm with a round loaded in the chamber. Completely separate The Handgun Sling from the firearm before discharging. Never discharge a firearm with any form of obstruction in the barrel. Failure to follow these and all other safety rules published by the firearm manufacturer can result in property damage, personal injury and/or death.

    Hmmm.... in the video, the guy just draws and aims like he's ready to fire. Did he forget that he still needs to chamber a round?

    Also, on a 1911, wouldn't the string be compressing the grip safety to the Fire position?

    Sounds safe to me.

    That looks like a parody commercial from Saturday Night Live or similar show.

    Nobody could actually think it's real, right?
