    Urban Carry Holster

    Just found this online. Anyone use one or know someone that does?

    Looks interesting.

    I saw this product months ago and immediately realized this is an absolute no go for me. First it requires two hands to draw. That right there is a deal breaker. If I can't draw and reholster with one hand it's not an option. A good holster should retain its shape and allow for one handed use of your gun. Second, the leather seems extremely soft. I don't think I'd feel comfortable with a thin piece of soft leather being the only thing covering my trigger guard. And third, drawing the pistol does not seem fast or smooth, nor does it appear to allow a repeatable master grip. I mean, you have to yank the holster and entire gun from under your pants and beyond your belt. Under stress this seems like a lot to ask. Add in additional layers and this gets even more difficult. IMO this is a gimmick holster, not unlike that stupid one that requires you to stick a rod in the barrel to holster it. Kydex or a sturdy leather holster would be an infinitely better option than this. That's my 2¢.

    What's the comfort when sitting for extended periods of time? Also, do you have to go up in size on your pants to accommodate the holster, gun and magazine?

    I think I know what you mean by one-handed draw and holstering. I'm not sure how you carry from the standpoint of concealment - meaning shirt untucked, or under a jacket. Are you saying you clear your shirt or jacket with your draw hand, and re-holster the same way? I agree with having a holster that doesn't completely collapse after the draw to allow for easier re-holstering.

    I used to use a holster with a similar concept years ago (it had a fake pager to clip to the belt if that helps date it). It was comfortable and very concealed - only problem was when I started to gain weight. Didn't take much before clearing the belt and the gut complicated the draw - it's hard to pull out on a belt and in on your gut at the same time.

    Thanks for the input all.

    I didn't even considered the belly issue, and sadly it is an issue these days.

    And as ParabellumJ pointed out, it's a 2 hand draw. For me that's not a good thing.

    I don't know how you guys conceal, but if you wear any cover garment other than an open shirt or jacket, you will ALWAYS want to use 2 hands to draw. I teach for a t-shirt/polo draw to use BOTH hands to clear the garment and THEN draw with the strong hand while still holding the cover garment up with your support hand. So the 2 hand draw doesn't bother me.

    The issue of re-holstering might be a problem since it looks like this collapses, but from the video, this guy re-holsters in the same way I do with my crossbreed. You use your support hand to hold up the cover garment and re-holster with the strong hand. It doesn't appear the collapsing holster is an issue since he puts it in every time with only one hand on the gun and the other clearing the garment/holster cover.

    So while I don't think those are an issue, I'm with the others who speak of a belly. My body type simply doesn't allow for appendix carry. And this setup it appears requires a VERY thin body type. For me, my belt needs to be very tight to keep my pants and my gun up. There is no way I could pull the entire gun up past my belt to draw it, even if carrying at 3/4 o'clock. This will really only work for those who can keep their belts loose enough to easily reach into your pants. And that's not me. But for those who can, this actually looks effective.

    I use my support hand to clear my cover garment, so yes I guess you could say I use two hands to draw my pistol. But what happens if you don't have use of one of your hands/arms? What if you are using one hand/arm to fight off an attacker while you draw your pistol with your other hand? Or if you are injured during the fight and have the use of only one hand? I don't think it would be impossible with this holster, but certainly more difficult.

    Again, I require all my holsters to retain their shape, so this is a no go for me. To me it's not the worst holster available, but there are certainly better choices. I guess if someone feels this holster gives them the best chance to successfully deploy their pistol should they need to then I say have at it. Personally I do not.
