Thank you very much for taking the extra time and effort to send the holster overnight. It's refreshing to work with someone who took his idea, processed the idea into an excellent product, makes the item in America by Americans and personally runs his business. A lot of this speaks to you being a Marine. We know there are no former Marines - once a Marine, always a Marine. The same can be said of 'Costies.'
Thank you for being a Brother-in-Arms and for your service to our country. Because of men like you we are free today.
Please take care. If you're ever in California, then please call me. It would be an honor and a great pleasure to show you around.

I love your holster. I have three handguns (Kel Tec P3AT, S&W .38, and Springfield 1911) and several holsters, but I find yours to be far superior in comfort and accessibility. I purchased your holster for my 5" Springfield...If your company ever goes public, I would love to be a stockholder. A quality product made in the U.S.A. will no doubt be popular with many.
I do have a suggestion for you regarding marketing. After several hours of internet research on holsters I came across this site: http://journal.drfaulken.com/smartcarry-concealed-holster-review/, which reviews your product. This review does an outstanding job of selling your product. I was compelled to order one because of this review and despite your site. Your site is too cluttered with information and text. If I had come across your site directly, I would have moved on without giving it much of a read.
Please take my suggestions as an attempt to help not just criticize. With a sleeker web site I am sure you could increase sales with a minimal investment. Consider hiring a professional web designer. Additionally, consider hiring someone for SEO (search engine optimization). I only found your product because I was willing to do several hours of research. I know you will capture more buyers if your product comes up in the top ten results for google searches.
I have already recommended your holster to my dad, who intends to order one. I will also be ordering another in the future for my kel-tec (when it gets back from the gunsmith). Please feel free to use any of this message as a testimonial. I request you not use my last name. Best of luck in your future endeavors!

I received my SmartCarry last Friday and have now been carrying with it for a bit over a week. I've got to tell you, this is the first holster I have used and I believe it will be the only one I will ever use. It is incredibly comfortable sitting, standing, walking, driving, whatever I'm doing, the SmartCarry never gets in the way. And most importantly, nobody has any idea that it's there. The only problem I have is that I purchased a medium with the intention of carrying a Glock 30 and ended up going with the Glock 27 instead, so while I probably would have been better off with the small, the medium works well also. Thanks for a great product!Sincerely,
I like my smart carry holster. I've had it for a year. I carry either my SIG 220 with a 10 round Backup mag., Or my Para Big Hawg with a spare mag. (15+1 plus 15). For a guy 6’3” at 170 pounds it's nice to have a very concealable setup for 31 rounds of .45 ACP! It's a beautiful thing.Xxxx Xxxxxx - Carbondale, IL
I can't tell you how happy I am with the holster. It has enabled me to carry with any clothing with comfort. Besides going to the bathroom or leaning over to pick something up I don't even think about it. I've even used it to carry my wallet the boardwalk when I couldn't carry my firearm. It has become a standard part of my wardrobe.
Thanks for your excellent design.T. M. - Downingtown, PA
I received the replacement holster yesterday (31 May). After putting on the correct size holster I was able to fully appreciate the holster with a correct fit. Based off the few hours I've worn it so far this looks like what I will be using as my new concealed holster. It does an amazing job of combining deep concealment, comfort, and functionality. Thanks again for a great product, great customer support, and supporting the troops!W. L., CPT, CA - Fayetteville, NC
Hey Charlie,I have been wearing the smart carry for two days now and its unbelievable! This is absolutely the best concealed carry holster I have tried yet. It's so simple!! No belt clips, no kydex, no tucking the shirt in just the right amount and then spending your time worrying if someone can see.. or if your shirt came untuck while you were driving! This thing is perfect absolutely comfortable and absolutely invisible!
Thank you for your ingenuity!!!C. M. - Canton, GA
Took your suggestion and you were right on. I can't believe how this holster works but it does. I'm an old-timer retired from LAPD back in the day of revolvers. I worked divisional narcotics and used a leather pouch with clip fastener to hold my Colt Detective Special 6 shot two inch. I clipped this to the front of my waistband. If I pushed the butt of the gun down it would hide below and inside the waistband and out of sight. Very, Very uncomfortable but it worked. I wish your SmartCarry holster was in existence back then. It is very comfortable. I decided to try the S&W model 469 first as it is a little larger frame then the XD subcompact. I just knew it was going to be a bear getting the gun out from under my levies and belt. Man, was I surprised how fast the gun cleared the SmartCarry. Ok, I'm sold.
ThanksW. S. - La Verne, CA
Hi guys I'm staunchly IWB (+ ankle back-up) carry and sent off for a SmartCarry as a last-ditch gamble as to how I could carry on the beach with just swimming shorts and no belt. Infact, I only placed the order when I realized you had a money-back-guarantee as I was so dubious that it would work.
I am astonished, and I knew it was a winner within 10mins of getting it out of the packet. Not only does the SmartCarry allow me to carry on the beach, with swimming shorts with no belt, and no shirt it's actually extremely comfortable, stable and absolutely 100% concealed in a way that I found extremely surprising. No problem running and jumping around after my kids, no problem sitting or squatting. Excellent. Even with a spare mag and my CHL + drivers licence tucked into the mag pocket.
So kudos to you folks great product will be doing a write-up plus pics on the texaschlforum.org website after I have done more 'testing'.
Thanks again,N. F. - Driftwood, TX
Hi Charlie & Carolyn,
Just wanted to let you know that SmartCarry is GREAT for runners. My husband purchased a SmartCarry for my use during my runs. I was a little skeptical, but it has proven to be great. My longest run while concealed was last Friday at 12 miles. My holster stayed in place and did not disrupt that planned run. When I'm done I let it air dry and it's good to go.
I couldn't find much info about runners and holsters on the internet. Thought you might like to promote this on your site.
Thanks much!J. S. - Mandan, ND
I am a brewer and wear bib overalls all the time. This is perfect for my wardrobe and lifestyle. I think anyone in hospitality and especially around alcohol should always carry. Now I have no excuse to ever be unarmed.Thanks, Charlie
I waited 3 years before buying the SmartCarry system. I have the box of holsters to prove it! After trying several different types and brands of holsters, I was determined to go with appendix carry because I could not get over the fact that my pistol was behind me when I wore it at 3 o'clock or later. I could not find the perfect blend of comfort, concealability, and retention. SmartCarry seems to fix all of those little quirks that other holsters present. There are no leather straps or clips that are mysteriously wrapped around my belt. It hides the SP101 very well, and I don't have to be concerned with it inching its way out of the holster when I sit or bend over (as do other various appendix holsters). This thing stays put and will not move around like holsters that are attached to a belt.
It is a very comfortable holster. After 3 days of wearing it, I think I have all the kinks worked out, and as suggested, it should be worn very low. Everyone is going to have a different 'sweet spot'.
Sitting feels a little awkward at first, because you have the full weight of the pistol in your lap and a little pressure pushing up into the lower stomach area. So... once again, you have to find that sweet spot. I am very happy with this purchase, and look forward to doing business with you in the future.
ThanksT. M. - Evansville, IN
I ordered my Smart Carry last Dec. and LOVE IT!!!! It is so comfortable I wear it everyday and forget I have it on. When my grandson sits in my lap he doesn't even know it is there. It' so comfortable I had to go into my bank and while sitting there I remembered I was carrying. Boy did I panic!!! Said yes to everything so I could beat it out of there as fast as I could. I now have two more bank accounts and all I remember is they are for safety purposes and I don't know how to use them.
I'm considering ordering a denim holster but would you please consider making a black one to wear with black slacks?

I recieved the smartcarry a few days ago and I just wanted to say thanks. I've been wearing it since I got it and it's a great alternative to pocket or IWB carry. I really enjoy wearing it while taking long walks. Walking briskly with a IWB holster or pocket holster wasn't ideal and the Smartcarry is much more comfortable. I believe I finally found my EDC holster!
Thanks again for a great product.R. D. - Ypsilanti, MI
I have been using the wearing the SmartCarry holsters for about 3 years now. It is now my main carry holster. I am a female, stay at home mom. As such, I wear sweats a lot during the day - not very conducive to wearing a standard holster. I carry my Glock 19 all day long in my Security SmartCarry holster. I wear it like a traditional holster turned on my hip on my strong side. It is well concealed and I don't have to worry when I am playing with the kids or going for a walk, cleaning house, or taking a nap. It is comfortable, discreet, and lets me keep my firearm where it belongs... on me at all times. I am buying a replacement holster today. I have worn this same one nearly every day for 2 years - it is just now starting to show signs of wear. Great quality product - I recommend it to all of my women friends who carry on their person. I have a 2nd SmartCarry holster for my other firearm. Thank you for a perfect holster for us ladies!!L. C. - Post Falls, ID
Just wanted to drop you a line and say how much I like this holster. It is very comfortable to wear standing or sitting and is truly amazing at how well it conceals my 38 S&W Airweight. Thanks for a great product.

Thank you, for such great products!
I first became a Smart Carry customer over a decade ago.
I just purchased my third holster, and I am glad to see the improvements over the years. First, there was the ability to carry two guns, later named the security model. Secondly, the security model was given a storage pocket, and then things really got good with the Cushmax. When total concealment is my only option, I have carried using your holster almost 24/7, in every environment and circumstance that one can legally carry, and the only problem I have ever experienced over the years is sweat penetration,... (and the holsters are not impervious to wear... what in this world, is not???)
The Cushmax is something that I am looking forward to having in my new holster, and should fit much better than my "custom cut" pieces of pvc coated cloth inserted in each holster pocket. That should tell you how long these holsters last, my last holster did not have Cushmax. I understand that was over 8 years ago.
Now if you can figure out how to make an indestructible holster that will not wear out... Thank you, for the suggestion on adding the duct tape. I will give that a try.
Thank You, Smart Carry Team!

It's Xxxx again, I just wanted to send you an update.. I received the smartcarry on the 24th and have been wearing it everyday (sometimes 12+ hours a day) and i have to say it is surprisingly comfortable, I say surprising because before I ordered it I read alot of reviews and some people said that it wasn't that comfortable, well I highly disagree with them and am glad to say I am very very pleased with your product. It does take a little getting used to for your personal preference, depending on what I wear I can set the smartcarry at 12 o'clock and other outfits I set it at about 1230.. Thank you again!!G.

It's already warm in Tx. Call me lazy but as soon as it is warm in Tx I wear Adidas shorts and sandals and t-shirts almost 100% out of work. I like to be comfortable when not in the office and only dress up for suitable occasions like a formal dinner, date, drinks, etc. At 37 I am already turning into an old man
For this summer (no spring in Tx) I was contemplating buying 5-6 pair of new shorts with belt loops on them instead of the Adidas draw string basketball type shorts I normally wear. I looked around and found some but they just weren't as comfortable due to material.
A friend suggested trying the smart carry holster. After reviewing their website I discovered that they had a 60 day trial period just like Crossbreed so I ordered one. Mr. Parrott answered a few questions I had about sizing very promptly and was helpful, excellent customer service by the way. I paid the extra $2 and got priority mail and it was delivered in 2 Days.
I edc a 239 btw and I can tell you that this is an extremely comfortable holster. Totally disappears as far as printing goes. Because you fasten around your hip bones and not your waist, the weight of the gun matters heaps less than an IWB holster dependent on a gun belt. The 239 feels like a polymer gun in this thing so for those of you who carry plastic, you'd love this thing. Such a simple design and extremely effective. I am really surprised at the comfort. I've walked with it so far, all day, and driven the car with it, and 0 issues. I really think the hip bone mount/attachment is th reason why it is so comfortable. I've tried Mexican before and didn't care for it but that was a clip type holster that fastens to a gun belt. The extra cheese is the mag pocket. With jeans/slacks I use a VMII and have nothing but praise for it after years of using kydex Bladetechs but you still have to buy a mag pouch/holster for spare magz. The smart carry has it built in already at no extra charge. Drawing the gun is easy, the thing is lined with waterproof material also so no fear about rust.
I can't say enough good things about this holster. I was apprehensive about this type of carry before but I am loving this thing. I even tried my 229 in it and it fits just fine. Prior the extra width of the slide in the 229 reduces it to winter carry only but this holster is so comfortable I could now carry the 229 year round. The best thing is when grocery shopping and carrying strong side IWB with an untucked shirt I'd have to be very careful reaching for stuff high on shelves. That problem is now solved because the gun sits below the waistline under my shorts.
I haven't tried it with jeans/slacks yet but I would be surprised if it is any different. I'm probably geeing on the thing a little but I'm just amazed at how comfortable the thing is and pissed at myself for not trying one sooner. And i love the spare mag compartment. If you haven't tried one order one. They have a 60 day trial period where you can return it. Best part was no waiting. I ordered at night and it was shipped the next day and arrived 2 days later. $60 with priority mail.B. B. - Richardson, TX
I just wanted to drop you guys and gals a quick note to tell you how good your "simple" product is. I bought my SmartCarry from D&L Training Academy (also my instructor). After an initial learning curve about the best location and adjustment for proper carry - I LOVE IT. Complete concealment of my Ruger SR9C with no restriction of motion.
THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU!A. P. - Haslet, TX
