    I ran across this web site the other day and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this holster. I'm looking for your opinion.

    I have one and use it on occasion. It is a deep concealment system. You don't have quick access to the gun. It is fairly comfortable.

    I just watched the video on that site. The presenter was able to access his semi-auto pistol at least as quickly as I could from a hip holster. Granted he was wearing a polo shirt, but I bet with practice he could do nearly as well in a dress shirt.

    I think I'll get one.

    I posted this on another forum I frequent:

    I like mine and it has been working well for me now that the Georgia heat is coming on. It's not perfect, but it works pretty well. You have to practice drawing with it or you will be very slow. Good luck.

    I have two of these and what really makes these slow are the retaining strap over the gun. I've never found a fast way to pull the strap up, tuck it out of the way, then pull the gun out. But, I use it in NPEs and for a bug realizing that it won't be quick to get too. I am planning to replace the velcro with a snap which should be faster.

    Oh, small guns like my Bodyguard 380 hide much better and work better than the compact/subcompact sizes.

    tmoore912,
    Thanks for the comprehensive report. The pictures tell the whole story...

    It works well for me while working in a office or showing property. Printing is minimal with slightly over sized shirts, especially if it has some type of print or pattern on it. With the summer Georgia heat coming on, this holster will see a lot of use more than likely. With the G26 and no magazine extension, it completely disappears.

    This is the initial post I made about the Kangaroo Carry:

    Seems like if the gun were a bit further under your armpit, it would be much more concealable.

    That would be true, but then you could not draw the gun with any relative speed. The farther back under the arm you carry it the harder it is to draw the weapon.
    Comfort suffers the more you try to place it under the arm pit.

    If I may revive the old thread, but how do you guys deal with the 'roo rotating around your chest? I spent quite some effort fitting it, but no matter what I do with the strap, it cannot prevent the rotation, and the gun ends somewhere under the pectoral.
