Versacarry ast summer at the Shooting Industry Masters, my good friend Richard Mann walked up to me and handed me his Versacarry holster. “Ever seen one of the these?” he asked in his hillbilly drawl. I had no idea what the small piece of plastic was. I’m smart enough to know it had a belt clip on it, but I couldn’t figure out its purpose. I’m guessing it was the 100 degree temperature with 100-percent humidity causing my lack of comprehension. Richard saw my confusion, “It’s a neat little holster and it works!” Richard produced his Diamondback .380, clipped it in the strange holster, slid it in his waistband and proclaimed, “It’s not for training at the range, it’s for stuffing a gun in your pants as you head out the door.” I was intrigued, but my radio went off and I had to go solve a problem on the line. I forgot about the Versacarry until I saw their booth at the NRA Show this year and spent some time with Justin, learning about how the simple, yet effective, system works. here you can see how it works. began to experiment with the Versacarry holsters after NRA, using a wide variety of my handguns. I even read the directions to make sure I set-up the holster correctly. Truth be told, for my first attempt at attaching the triggerguard, I put it on backwards. Only then did I read the directions and get it right. What can I say, I’m a guy! From my smallish LC9, Glock 26 and Kahr P45, to my full-sized 1911 — with a Glock 19 and Commander in the middle — I found the Versacarry worked as advertised. Different models fit different “families” of guns, and they’ll supply the one you need to fit your guns. Is this an all-day, working-the-range rig? Nope, but that’s not what it’s for. The holsters give you a secure place to conceal your gun, so you can be well-armed while going about your daily business. I treat this holster like a pocket holster. After drawing the gun and doing what you need to with it, take the holster off your belt, reattach the gun and put it back in your pants. “Sammy, isn’t that a slow, non-tactical way to re-holster?” Yup, but nobody ever won a gunfight by being the first back to the holster. Remember rule number one of gun fighting: You gotta have a gun. i bang For your buck i get calls and emails every year from readers asking me if I could recommend a quality holster at an affordable price. After some discussion, I can usually find a holster maker to suit everyone’s needs. The hard part is everyone has a different definition of affordable. Quality gear usually costs more money than most want to spend, until now. The Versacarry sells for $24.99 and is worth every penny — and then some. If you’re looking for holster to securely carry your concealed pistol and have it instantly accessible, then look no further. If you are looking for a rig to use at Thunder Ranch or a Gunsite 250 class, this isn’t it. The Versacarry takes away the excuse of “I’m not carrying my (fill in the blank) because I don’t have a holster for it.” This isn’t a custom, hand-carved BBQ rig for you to show off to your friends. It’s a simple solution to the problem of ensuring you have a gun on you. And the key word is on.
