Doesn't cover the trigger.. No thanks.. but it is a pretty interesting idea.

No thanks. It relies totally on belt tension to hold the pistol in place. Every time you have to loosen your belt you now have a loose gun with the trigger unprotected. Even a Clipdraw secures the gun to the belt.

Hi guys, my name is Justin Sitz I'm the inventor of the VersaCarry Concealment System and I wanted to post a couple of videos I think might help everyone understand the product better. For Example the product doesn't just rely on just belt tension, if that were the case every time you had to use the toilet your gun would have to be removed. The VersaCarry can support a gun by itself even upside down. These Videos will explain better.

I have used Clipdraw ever since they came out and love them. I have used them on 4 Glocks now , and I think I have even used the same one when switching from .40 to 9mm pistols. Up until a few months back have I ever replaced the factory mag release and now the ext mag release digs into my back or hip, will VersaCarry solve this problem because I am about to put the factory mag release back on.

Also will the 9mm version hold a Ruger 357 Blackhawk? I know it would be awkward to try to conceal but just curious.

I don't have a 9mm or a 380, but if I did I'd try one.

Welcome to glocktalk. :wavey:

Very creative holster. I personally just can't mentally carry (especially something without an external safety...i.e. glock) AIWB without something covering the trigger. Otherwise this is a great minimalist holster.

Too bad it doesn't have some sort of sweat shield. In summer, my guns would quickly be soaked with perspiration. Great concept though.

Hi guys, and sorry for the late reply to some of the questions I have been out of town. The current models are designed for autos but I have some customers using them on there wheel guns. I have a planned model for wheel guns that will come out later.

To the no trigger guard response please look at a photo comparison of a keltec (http://about<b></b>:blank#) 380 in a holster, vs the VersaCarry (http://about<b></b>:blank#) concealment system. You will see that once inserted into your waistline you can not reach the trigger until the gun is drawn. A holster only covers the trigger once a gun is inserted into it, and the trigger becomes uncovered when it is removed from the holster. The VersaCarry (http://about<b></b>:blank#) concealment system does the same thing but in this case the shielding portion of the system is your own belt and pant line. Once in a holster, or in your pant line there is no way to contact the trigger until removed.

To the sweat response, I do recommend you oil your carry gun daily, but to be honest with any traditional holster I think most would agree you should still oil a carry gun daily. With a traditional IWB (http://about<b></b>:blank#) holster the top 25% to 30% of your gun which is still in contact with your side so that portion is still going to need daily oil during the hot summer months. The real difference is instead of just oiling the top portion I'd recommend oiling the entire gun. Prior to this even when I used leather or nylon holsters they still soaked up the sweat so I would still oil daily.

These are merely my thoughts and just another perspective to consider while looking at the product.

Very interesting design.

Reholstering could be a slight pain, but hopefully by then you'd have all the time you need to reholster.

What about the clip coming off the belt on a not perfect draw? Would you consider making it a full belt loop instead of clip?

jsitz
06-27-2011, 10:18
The clip is designed in way that grabs the belt from the bottom side creating a very strong retention. Everyone is always very pleased with the amount of retention. Here is a video that better explains the process of pulling a gun and the reinsertion process. http://s889.photobucket.com/albums/ac98/jsitz187/?action=view&current=MVI_0134.mp4

I really like it, I personally would like to see a thigh platform version, that would be neat. Also, I dont understand why anybody would not use a iwb unless it had a trigger guard, you dont have to have the gun cocked while your carrying it do you? I dont chamber rounds with clipdraw, I would duck and cover my Arse while chambering if shtf

Hey guys here is a test firing of a pistol repeatedly with the VersaCarry unit inserted. "THIS IS JUST A TEST AND IS NOT THE RECOMMEND USAGE OF THE PRODUCT" this is to just show and answer the "what if question"

The VersaCarry is designed to be able to expel the rod from the barrel if the unit was ever used improperly. http://s889.photobucket.com/albums/ac98/jsitz187/?action=view&current=SafetyTest.mp4

This is my first post on here, I generally just like to look at the glock setups on the forums, so take what I have with a grain of salt, I'm no carry gun expert, but I do have one of these versa carry holsters and I use it with my walther PPK and It has worked good this summer. My main complaint with any holster has always been getting up from a seated position and this system allows the gun to not bulk up on my hips when I sit down. Don't think you want to go commando with one on though. It is simple and it works for me.

:cool:I bought one for a 380 Cal. It is very thin, I had all sorts of holsters, but was never happy with any, they are simply just too bulky. You can say this design adds no bulk. I bought it for that reason. I needed to carry it for awhile to get used to. Really you feel like the gun is not being holstered but it stays in the pants just fine. Drawing is no problem, re-holster it, takes some getting used to. I rate it as good comparing to some other really high-priced holsters, which I don't really use.

As previously noted, kydex trigger guard plus the Versa Carry could work very well - I use a Clipdraw plus a Vanguard trigger holster for peace of mind.

I had the opportunity to buy and use one of these holsters for off duty concealed carry and am impressed. It is not only small and non patterning but holds the gun in place firmly enough to keep it secure but loose enough for proper draw. Now I will say for a Glock trigger it is a little concerning but for my Ruger LCP with the long hard trigger there is no concerns at all. The inventor took a simple idea (seen bad guys do the same concept with a wire hanger years ago) and use new materials to make a perfect concealment item. It is well worthe the price and build well. You cannot go wrong for $19.99.

Love this site!

Lots of experts... :cool:

I may have to get one of these just to check it out. I'll probably *hack* it to add leather between me and the pistol... just to slow the sweat down, and protect the trigger (or ME) from getting some belly fat pinched.

Back it with a flap of leather, I don't see how the trigger could be pulled in normal use. You would have all the coverage of a normal holster and a sweat absorbing piece of leather that would stay dry for about 15 minutes here in Tucson AZ in August!

Hmmm... gonna have to make that 'un-dyed' leather he said out loud to himself.... or explain the new 'birth mark' to my wife.

Price is right too! One for each caliber... interchangeable 'sweat guards'... Yer set!

NEXT Opinion?

Let's see I'm going to buy a "holster" that:
a) says DO NOT CARRY round in chamber
b) offers NO cover for my trigger
c) shoves an object un my barrell
d) does not "protect" the gun from sweat

What more do I need to be convinced this is a revolutionary product?

While I think it's a terrible idea, this could simply be a liability thing. Everybody wants to sue someone... Most gun manuals usually say that guns should not be chambered until they are going to be fired...

Regardless, I agree w/ everything else you said.. It's a bad idea, and not very safe.

Hi Guys, my name is Justin Sitz I'm the creator of the VersaCarry. I want to share a little information with everyone about the product and some info on the Gen II clips scheduled for October.

Product Warnings: This is our advice to all our customers, should you feel like you need to carry with a round chambered you can its ultimately your choice. Most firearm manufacturers don't even recommend leaving ammunition in a pistol at home or in a car.

Trigger Guard: When the product is in use there is no way to access the trigger until the weapon is drawn. I've attached a photo to show a what I'm talking about. With that said, "We have added a removable trigger guard to our Gen II clips"

The Object in the barrel: This is a machined Delrin rod that is sized so that in the event a firearm is discharge while the device is inserted the gun can expel the entire unit from the barrel. In short your gun is not going to blow up.

The gun is definitely not protected from sweat, but with all the super tough anti rust finishes on today's guns its not a major issue. Oil you gun every couple of days and its fine. I've yet to ever see or use a traditional holster that didn't soak up sweat, or allow some moisture to come in contact with the gun. Even in traditional holsters the top portion of the gun is going to come in contact with the users body requiring the user oil their carry gun on a regular basis.

As far as the post online, I doubt its one of my dealers but who knows. I'm sure the moderator could tell right away if these were all coming from the same IP address and wouldn't allow that anyhow. None the less lots of people do use my product and like it. I welcome anyone to check out my feedback on ebay just type in VersaCarry.

Also here is an interview I did with a Richard Mann who is also an ex law enforcement officer.
http://gunwriter.wordpress.com/2011/07/27/versa-carry-holster/

Here is another testimonial I got the other day from a retired police officer.
I just received my second versa carry. One for my Kahr 380 and now my
Glock 26. These holsters are the BEST. It beats the IWB and safer than a
pistol stuck in your pants. Keep up the good work. Tony Amelio Ret

The engineers and molders will be done with our Gen II clips in October and they will be released in .25, .32, 380, 9mm, .40, 10mm, and .45. The new clips will feature a removable trigger guard so the user will have the choice of adding it, or leaving it off and having a Gen I clip.

I don't carry with a round in the chamber right now. So the trigger guard isn't as important to me, but I still want that protection.

For <$20 I bought one ..and I kinda like it. Like anything, there are some circumstances where it just wouldn't work but it is a nice and very inexpensive option. I have a bajillion expensive holsters so I figured for the price I would give this a whirl. Tried it with my P9 and PM9 and the set up is simply ridiculously comfortable. It's what I would imagine using no holster at all would feel like only with much more security. The unit holds on the firearm very well and is surprisingly very secure on the belt.. and yet very easy to remove and put back on the belt as well. Right now I wouldn't feel comfortable carrying with a loaded chamber though or if I was going to be sweating it up a lot.
I'm not disappointed.

I got my 9mm medium model in yesterday morning and have been wearing it yesterday and today.
Nicely made, fits my gun and belt well. Very easy on and off.
I always wear an under shirt and it is quite confortable, there is enough room in the clip on a 1 1/2 belt for the gun to have a slight cant and it conceals and fits fine at 3 to 3:30.
I am using it with a Glock 19 with a NY1 trigger spring.

I am sure most Glock users will hate that it does not cover the trigger, and would never use it for that reason. To each his own, with my gun and set up, I feel it is safe with the 8 pound trigger pull. I have often carried revolvers using hip grips and clip draws, and see don’t find it an issue.
Definitely not for everyone, and I will still use my standard IWB holsters too, but it is a nice option to have. I can’t carry in the office, so have to un holster and re holster several times a day, with the proper caution, it works great for that.

Hi guys, my name is Justin Sitz I'm the inventor of the VersaCarry Concealment System and I wanted to post a couple of videos I think might help everyone understand the product better. For Example the product doesn't just rely on just belt tension, if that were the case every time you had to use the toilet your gun would have to be removed. The VersaCarry can support a gun by itself even upside down. These Videos will explain better.

Well after reading endless posts from actual owners and watching lots of videos on UTube....I'm in agreement that for $20.00 bucks it was worth a try.
Can I make this short and sweet ???
Its the best holster I have and trust me I have a draw full at home of the latest and greatest holsters on the market.
This one is the one...PERIOD.
Lightweight, small, easy to conceal, comfortable, not at all bulky and sits very tight to my side as if I just put the gun there without any holster.
Its amazing...and I really have to give it to the developer who is a member here...he did a great job. :notworthy:

Not a fan of holsters that are recommended to only be used when carrying chamber empty, which is how it was recommended to be used when it came out.

Personally I would not use this with a Glock... However, I love it for my compact 1911. I use it with the 1911 loaded, chambered, cocked and locked... Usually I am on here touting the Vanguard II but I do like the Versa carry for my 1911...Just my two cents worth anyway.

I just picked one of these up for $25 and it has the new trigger guard. I am in Illinois so I wanted to play around with it even thought I cant carry out of the house yet and for $25 I thought what the heck. I bought this from an active Police Officer who is a Glock Armorer and he thought it was great.

Here is a link to the website to see the trigger guard.

Well I am sold. For the price I can afford to try one. I saw the original ad on FaceBook and I thought I would research on Glock Talk. Thanks for all the input guys.

I had one real similar for a long time, loved it. While I like OWB more, I was in Texas and did not like wearing a jacket 11.5 months out of the year. This holster was used 90% of the time. Well I broke it eventually, so I decided to make one just like it. I bought some lexan and a dowel rod and recreated my old holster. It works, but not quite as nice as the original. So while on TAD a couple weeks ago I found the versa carry in a local gun shop. It is very similar to the holster I had, except it is less bulk. This is a better design than the holster I had. So I bought one for my G20, and one for my G29 that I am waiting for. It is a very functional holster. It does cover the trigger, I am not sure why people keep saying it doesn't. Perhaps because the backside of the trigger is not covered; the side the rest against your body. One side kydex, one side butt meat; covered. Not the owner, don't know him, been a member here for a long time. I was not going to post, but felt I had to as some of the members on here seemed to be giving the guy a hard time. Making some assumptions......

Earlier designs (like in 2011 when this thread started) did not have any trigger guard.

Sorry Justin for the skepticism. I bought your product for my G26 last month just to make sure that I wouldn't like it. Figured I could hang my tape measure from it or some other tool.
After using it everyday for 4 weeks all I can say is, "well dumbass me!". What a great product. Real comfortable, safe, easy to use, just the right carry height, and great price. Once again just like "my" idea for the escalator, someone else beat me to it (ha ha). Thanks for bringing it to the market.

I wanted to throw my two cents in here on the VersaCarry holster.....although I prefer calling it my VersaCarry "Rig". I've carried a Glock 30 in a Galco IWB holster....appendix location....and always liked it. When I discovered the VersaCarry, I was quite interested because it eliminated some of the "bulk" with my leather Galco. I do use the trigger guard that comes with it....and wear a good sturdy belt. For me, deep concealment is very easy with the VersaCarry "Rig". I should mention that it took me a couple of days to break it in. The Glock 30 has a pretty wide slide, and to insert the plug into the barrel was difficult. The slide wants to "scrape" against the black plastic body of the "Rig", but after diligently working with it for a couple of days, it now works great! Slides on and off easily, while still maintaining a good grip on the gun.
I certainly understand that everyone is different....we don't all like the same things, but for IWB carry in the appendix location...with my slim body type....it works great for me! It's one of those products that causes me to think....."Wish I had invented that!!!"

Heck no. For something to be useful as a holster, it needs to cover the trigger guard, hold the weapon securely, and have a secure method of attaching to the belt or rig. For novelty, sure. For daily carry, it falls into the woefully inadequate category, joining such abysmal offerings as the uncle mike's one-size-fits-most felt holster, cripdraw, and mic. http://www.versacarry.com

Anyone here have this holster?

$19.95

It does have a trigger guard, holds the weapon securely, and securely attaches IWB; have you tried one?

Not the one we tried, and not the one depicted in the link. Doesn't hold it securely, doesn't cover the trigger guard, and doesn't attach securely to the belt. Are you sure you're talking about the versacarry? Because it is one small step up from mexican carry with a string tied to a beltloop. For $20, you can get a proper holster from glock. If it works for you, that's a good thing, and what really counts. I prefer something with a little more substance. http://www.versacarry.com/media/images/default/Conceal-and-Carry-with-Versacarry-Two-or-More-Ships-Free_1.jpg (http://www.versacarry.com/versacarry-semi-auto-model.html)

Doesn't cover the trigger.. No thanks.. but it is a pretty interesting idea.

I just watched the video - it looks like the trigger is covered quite well.

It does not cover the trigger guard. Nor does the video show it covering the trigger guard.

The two I purchased cover the trigger, as shown in the photo above. When in the belt on the clip it is secure. I can run, jump, and move around and the gun(glock20) is secure. Perhaps I wear the belt tighter or have a sturdier belt. I prefer owb with a garment. The versa carry works with hot weather clothes (t-shirt and shorts).

Unless I'm missing something the side opposite of the clip is left exposed.

For something I'm going to be jamming down my pants, I'd like the trigger to be covered from both sides... don't want it snagging my undies.

Bill Lumberg

Correct. Just because they took a picture of one side covered doesn't change the fact that the other side isn't. The website shows a revolver and even the "covered" side isn't fully covered. Unless I'm missing something the side opposite of the clip is left exposed.

^^^ This is my thought as well. Sorry, but for any gun, as I carry with one in the chamber, I like my holsters to completely cover the trigger guard on BOTH sides. I just don't feel comfortable with any of the trigger guard area exposed, at any price. I'm glad it works well for some people, but it's not for me.

Sorry I assumed everyone wore it against their side, which would cover both sides of the trigger. I am not co concerned with something penetrating feet of flesh and bones and getting to the trigger. Matter of fact I would be more concerned with something penetrating some cowhide or kydex getting to the trigger before it gets through two layers of skin, flesh, and bones.

To whom it may concern, the Versacarry package instructions states that they do not recommend carrying with one in the chamber. And, of course, some do and some don't. Those who do, would not want this holster. Different strokes...for different folks..............

Maybe this was another bad assumption I made; when I put on any IWB holster I take a minute with the pants undone to situate the pistol then close the pants and fasten the belt; I don't jam the pistol/holster down my pants. I thought this was common practice for IWB holsters. Also, if I do have to pull the firearm out I figure I am not re-holstering it. It would be a pain to re-holster quickly with the versa carry. Probably wouldn't do well in IDPA/USPSA.
