View Full Version : SmartCarry Update

So, I've been using the SmartCarry for about a year and a half now. Here's an update.

1. Quality and Workmanship: A+
It's showing signs of wear on the front and back like a pair of bluejeans, and the stretch bands are shriveling up a bit, but it still gets the job done. That wear spot on the backside bottom is not even close to wearing through. The soft white fabric is worn through, but whatever they use as a liner is unfazed. Even with the wear patterns it appears that it will last several more years.

2. Concealability: A+
It just ain't there to anyone but me even with a Bianchi speed strip.

3. Practicality: B+
It is what it is: not a fast draw, but a compromised reasonable draw. I can draw, point and shoot within about 3 seconds.

4. Comfort: A+
Even with the steel-frame Colt DS I often forget it's there. It's that comfortable even when sitting or squatting.

5. Safety: A+
It does not point at my privates and even when sitting it lays across the top of the thigh, not pointing at any bodypart except, maybe the top of one's foot. At no time has my revolver moved, begun to cycle, or had a hammer cock and drop. Ain't gonna happen with a revolver (which is why I carry a revolver in it).

The old man in Florida has done his homework and is producing a superior deep cover carry.

Couldn't be happier with it.

I am considering purchasing one and I like getting real world feedback. I have a SA EMP I want to carry in it.

Thanks for the review. Will probably look into getting one fairly soon.

They're not for everyone's body shape and everyone's particular situation.

If your situation is such that you simply cannot have accidental exposure of your carry piece, it might just work like a charm for ya.

A gust of wind, a seatbelt snag when getting out of a car, any shirt tail snag can expose an waist band carry. But waist band carry works for many people.

Deep cover concealed could mean a SmartCarry method.
