I prefer the belly band for my deep concealment needs. I asked my wife to sew a leather backer on mine where my pistol rides when it's holstered and it makes it way more comfortable and adds a sweat barrier.Any helpful hints for improving the draw from a Smart Carry?
What about from a bellyband?
How's from the right kidney area (not over the spine) SOB? :hand5:In the OP, the reference to an alternative carry method...
SOB carry might also be included...my IWB/SOB is a palm out draw from the right kidney area (not over the spine). Awkward for some, but relatively an easy draw if you practice. OMO
Actually if I'm not mistaken it is made by the same company. Since pagers have pretty much gone out of style they adapted it for cell phones and renamed it.WOW..."Cell-Pal"....a definate rip off of the Pager-Pal holster.
I've been wearing the Pager-Pal for about 5 years now. The man in the video is right...the most concealed and most comfortable carry I have been able to find. It just irks me that he is feeding off of another's original idea. But then, that's capitalism at work. Maybe he bought the rights to it.
Check out the pricing for the both of them....they're identicle in appearance.
Yes, it buys me the ability to wear dress pants that have too-thin (or utterly nonexistent) belt loops, or to wear skirts with elastic waist bands, with the gun positioned exactly where I am most accustomed to wearing it. Given the casual way I live, it's not a necessary deal very often, but my life would be a lot more difficult if I didn't have that option available to me when I needed to be more formal.I assume if the clothing could let me get away with it at appendix position, I could just use an IWB. Does the bellyband buy you anything in that position?
I know at least one woman who does so, or who did do so a couple of years ago anyway. (Not sure how she's carrying these days.) No reason not to try it!Would you ever wear a bellyband at the hip at 4?
I'm not sure how you dress, so I'll list a few things that help my draw.Any helpful hints for improving the draw from a Smart Carry?
Somehow, I just don't think the smart carry was designed for women.The problem isn't a need for ultra deep concealment so much as giving me more variety of clothing options. :smile:
Belly band, in particular, works for a lot of my clothes, but I worry about the slow draw.
Smart Carry is mostly around the house, doing chores, etc, and it's because it's comfy. (If I wear it with regular clothes, I tend to look like I'm packing something other than a gun, lol!)
I just need options.
