    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 like mine, and I would give it the same review.

    Great concealability, great comfort, even with a really large pistol, but SLOW. I carry a 5" 1911 with an empty chamber, because I find the muzzle tends to cover my feet and legs frequently.

    So I am definitely looking at a dead slow draw, but personally I will trade the slow draw for not violating the first rule of gunfighting...have a gun. With this rig, it can go anywhere. I have worn my 1911 to the gym in sweatshorts and a t-shirt, no problem.

    Tks for the review. Does your Colt's cylinder hang below your beltline?
