Concept & Development

about1This holster was developed to openly Carry Concealed and to do so comfortably. It enables you to draw quickly as opposed to off body carry. I found carrying concealed in the small of my back was not comfortable while sitting or driving. Under some shirts I could not draw without catching my pistol. The added steps to lift, move and draw slowed me down. Most of my clothing are knit shirts and shorts that are not always conducive to conventional concealed carry. One item I always clip on no matter what I am wearing is my cell phone. I simply expanded this concept and developed the Holster System you see here today.Your state laws will weigh in on whether this is actually open carry because it is camouflaged as another product. It is intentionally deceptive. It is the perfect size for my little 4 ½” x 7 ½” Asus notepad. So it is aptly named NotePad2 to help dissuade speculation that it may actually be a holster. Many (if not most) people are very trusting and assume it appears to be what it says it is. I have not had any issues or comments one way or the other while wearing my prototypes. I am able to provide several different colors as well as black denier to openly carrying concealed.

This holster system has two heavy duty steel clips for use on a good gun belt and works well in and out of a vehicle, in and out of stores and works great for general wear. If you are going to spend several hours on your feet with the kids or the grandkids at the zoo, museum or playground, an optional black shoulder strap is included for extended wear and to help displace the hip weight. My particular choice of a pistol for this holster system is a Ruger SR40C with a Crimson Trace Laser and extended magazine. It allows me to use a good stopping round, 15+1 in the pistol and the spare magazine gives me a total capacity of 31 rounds readily available in the holster. If a strap is not used for extended wear, a Made in America good pair of 3 point braces from Suspenders is a great alternative.

The holster is a reinforced 600 Denier Nylon in a multitude of colors and it is slightly padded to not add bulk to the holster but does not allow the hand gun to print. The added pockets also help disguise the fact there is a gun in the holster. AA 4” wide reinforced piece of high strength elastic keeps the gun firmly secure and a separate piece keeps the spare magazine secure. Both the gun and the magazine are easily deployed. Each holster system is proudly Made in America, is individually manufactured by color and RH or LH draw specifically for you. The manufacturing and delivery process takes about 3-4 weeks and it helps keep our costs down because we don’t carry an expensive inventory.

Sometime after I began the design and prototype work on this holster I began noticing people carrying other forms of similar designs that were not concealed carry. I had gone shopping with my sweetie and noticed the girls at the makeup counter carried a little bag with many of their things handy. I stopped at a restaurant and the maintenance exterminators made their rounds with little clipboards, pens, flashlights and other items in a little belted bag. Stopping for dinner one evening our waiter had a bag on his belt with an order pad, pens, penlight and straws ready to deploy. So my adaptation of technology has created a Holster System that is comfortable, unique and highly functional. When we were working on our umpteenth design prototype Kevin Michalowski with the USCCA produced his 3rd episode of Into the Fray and released it on March 31st 2014 about an Every Day Carry Kit. This is the link to that video and I urge you to view it. Of course I was very happy and surprised that Kevin and I were certainly on the same page for personal safety and protection. Building Your Every Day Carry Conceal Kit. Also, if you have not seriously researched the United States Concealed Carry Association I strongly urge you to look into joining, US Concealed Carry. I have and I belong, just as I have with the NRA.
