Seems like it might be a bit more comfortable than the Kramer Confident Shirt (Since It's All cotton) & probably a little quicker to draw from. I found a "write up" on it also but, I have not tried it. It's only priced at $27.00 (Fairly Inexpensive)

That pic looks familiar - seems like a viable option.

This actually isn't a bad idea! I'm intrigued they could use it with a Glock 19, as the Glock 19 is actually a pretty decent sized gun.

I don't see how it would be any "worse" than the IWB cross draw I personally prefer for concealment. I think it'd actually be a pretty fast draw if you're used to drawing that way.

The first problem I see is that I doubt this thing is all that rugged. It seems to me you'd have to replace it fairly often. The other thing I don't like is that the part that actually holds the gun doesn't look like it has much structure.

$27.00

For the price I thought that it would be pretty cheap to buy a couple or three & launder them during super hot weather.
I know that the Kramer Shirt gets pretty B.O. Stinky after a couple of days in 90 plus degree weather.
Looks inexpensive enough to try & if no good...then no great monetary loss.
I might buy one for Weddings, Bar Mitzvahs & various other social functions.
I like the idea of all cotton for this recent heat~wave type weather.

Looks like it would be hard to get to when it is under a shirt and it doesn't look like you could wear it any other way. You would have to pull the shirt up way farther than you would if it was IWB. SmartCarry looks like it would be quicker than this set up.

Q-ball

Yep, plan on ripping some shirt buttons if you need to get to your firearm in a hurry.
Actually. I think Kramer sells an "overshirt" for their Confident Shirt with fake buttons that rips open with Velcro but, I guess you would need to buy 7 of them & wear one every day (for everyday carry)
Who knows in advance what day they will need their carry firearm?
For "deep cover" I guess a torn open shirt is a small price to pay to get to your firearm quicker.
It still requires that extra action before the draw.
For some folks that have no other carry choice but to "Deep Six" their firearm I guess this one would be a pretty safe bet.
Either that or deep down in the drawers.

I've had one for several years. On-duty in uniform,I wear it over my protective vest, under my shirt with the garter strap through a loop in the vest carrier shoulder piece. I found the garter would slip down off my shoulder without some way of securing it. I carry a Glock 26 under right arm so it is accessabe to support hand. This holster has worked great for my needs. YMMV

smartkangaroocarry holster

Any of you that have a smartcarry can make a kangaroo type holster out of it easily. Simply place your smartcarry loosely around your upper abdomen generally between your nipple line and belly button. Then go to a sewing store and get about 3 ft of nylon type belt material about 1 inch wide. Also buy 4 suspender clamps. Next have your significant(with sewing skill) other measure around from one side to the other over your shoulder and cut the belt material to length. Then add your suspender clamps. Basically what you are making here is a very short pair of suspenders. Clamp the suspenders to the smartcarry and your done! I like to use this setup in the winter. The gun is located at about 11:30 on my upper abd. and I just leave a button open for a very fast draw. Your gun is very concealed yet easily available esp. when you have a coat on or sitting in a vehicle.

I have been using the Kangaroo holster to carry my PT111 for the last few weeks. I am very impressed with it. My mother in law asked my wife the other day if I ever utilize my CC Permit...my wife laughed and said "He's been carrying everytime he has seen you since he got his permit." As you can tell, it is very well concealed....with the right clothing. I can't wear white T-shirts or it shows through. Some polo shirts that aren't loose enough show printing. When wearing an untucked Polo or Tshirt I can draw by using my left hand to pull my shirt up and then use my shooting hand to jerk the gun loose from the velcro strap. In a button up shirt I have been leaving one button open to access the gun, but my wife is going to experiment with sewing one button to the outside and putting velcro behind that so it doesn't have to look like I am unkept. :) I find that when wearing an undershirt, carrying in it is quite comfortable. I have not tried to carry with it at work yet, because I could see someone seeing the outline of the strap and asking me about it...that is why I am **HAVING** to buy a pocket gun. All in all, the Kangaroo holster is well worth the money!

Every Man To His Own Taste...

I don't think this rig would work for me...oh, it might work, but the cross band is not for this Florida climate...hard to cover...

OMO

Tried it, was ok, but I went back to the t-shirt style pretty quickly. Wasnt as balanced and flopped more than the UC Comforts did. The chest band was more restrictive than what I was use to. It is priced ok though and I know one agent who swears by it, but he modified his to carry cuffs and mags on the opisit side to balance it out.

They do sell a version with a pocket on the otherside for mags, cuffs or whatever. I emailed the guy at Kangaroo and he answered some of my questions about the guns I carry and what would fit. He was very helpful. I have not decided to purchase yet.

As far as the shirt. I was going to try to sew the hole for the button shut. Then sew a button over the hole with a snap on the back. Then sew the other part of the snap where the button was.
