All in all, this looks like an ideal solution to many carry problems. While in a car, on a bike, walking, etc. The nice thing is, it doesn't LOOK like a holster!!!

That looks very intriguing. Now we need to get a forum member or instrustor to convince them to send a demo so we can get a first hand account of how it works.

It doesn't lok like a fanny pack but it looks enough like some of the new maxpedition / utility pouches / man purses to go a little less noticed. The access seems akward in the video. Click buckle, raise cover, drop hand in, achieve grip, draw... Guess it's no worse and probably a bit better than tucked IWB carry.

I still think someone is going to ask what's inside. Especially if you know people who like bags ;-)

We have one at the shop that I was playing with. I don't know.. it wasn't working for me any better than a fanny pack, etc.

Perhaps as a replacement for a fanny pack? It looks a little more contemporary and the seat belt / strong side belt / support hand / shoulder strap / bike pack addition / etc... make it a bit more versatile.

Is it still floating around the shop? I'd love to get a look at one...

I've got one, and occasionally use it. It's got some good features, although I think it's better thought-of as a good combination strongside belt and car holster, rather than anything else, although it does, sorta kinda, masquerade as a fanny pack kind of thing.

In other words, it's not nearly discrete enough to be considered truly concealed, it will get wierd looks like a fanny pack might and it could scream gun to people? Those were my worries about how it would be viewed by the public at large.

The seatbelt carry issue is intriguing though...

The only thing that will scream "gun" to most people is a gun openly displayed--and often not even then. AK47 in a tactical soft case on a bus? No problem!

We only have one and it's here in Robbinsdale. It's well made.. but like I said, I can't get the hang of drawing quickly from it. Maybe I should look at the instructions. :roll:

Why would you want to look at the instructions? What the hell are they for?
