    Interesting carry idea

    http://www.versacarry.com/

    Not sure if I would use it though.I would prefer to have some protection around the gun and not have it rubbing against my skin

    I think the main complaint on these is no trigger guard and thats a pretty big deal. IMHO

    Either I'm more blind than I thought I was or, in the pictures on that site, that individual has his/her finger on the trigger. Talk about unsafe practices!

    I would not use one of these for both reasons mentioned by other posters; no trigger guard and weapon not protected against skin moisture.

    Ouch, with a 1911 you'd need to wear Kevlar underwear to get by without severe slide bite.

    There's a few of those style "clip holsters" out there, so far I have yet to see one worth the $$ to try it. I'll stick with an honest to goodness holster like my CBST or Serpa (altho I am wanting to try one of Cleveland's if I ever get the spare $$, looks a bit more adjustable than my CBST)

    It's an interesting design. Their website says the GenII model will have an optional trigger guard.

    Exactly what you guys said. Also the idea of sweating all over my gun and having it leave those itchy red pressure marks on my skin isn't very appealing either.
    "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."

    Easily modified. Get a 1/2 inch nylon strap. Hot glue it to the inside of the belt clamp. Put firearm on peg. Run nylon strap around gun. Cut strap to length. Put velcro on strap ends. Clamp holder to the outside of the belt instead of inside belt. Good to go.

    I hope they charge at least double for a trigger guard. Double again for each level of mechanical retention. Total (plant) awareness works for me.

    Interesting idea; looks difficult for a quick draw, plus what y'all already mentioned.

    No trigger guard?? This guy has no business selling holsters. The first lawsuit from a ND with one of his holsters, is going financially bury him, and rightly so.

    Nah, not necessarily, there's a few other brands out there with skeletonized holsters like that, Clipdraw is even more minimal: http://www.clipdraw.com/

    Not sayin' I agree with the method, just sayin' it's out there.

    Nope, the package clearly states not to carry a loaded firearm when using the device.

    A friend of mine had one of these ... when he drew his handgun the peg broke off and stayed in the barrel making the handgun useless and dangerous for defense.

    That thing seems about as likely to retain the handgun as a lubricated ferret trying to juggle Rugers.

    I think this thing is designed more for CC than OC where retention is not as important.

    Using an unloaded firearm, I tried placing inside my pants at 3 and 4 o'clock. Had no issue drawing against a tucked shirt or with an un-tucked shirt. It was a little cold against my skin though. I may try and get one of the Gen II ones for CC.
