You have created the perfect concealment holster! I have been carrying my S&W MP 9mm compact in it every day (all day) in the 2 weeks since I got it. It is very comfortable & totally unnoticeable. It is very hot in the summer where I live and I have always had trouble carrying a gun concealdd due to the light clothing I wear. This holster is the perfect solution. Thanks you very much for a great product!Vicki W. - Memphis, TN
I have carried my weapons (warthog by Para, S&W 37 and KelTec 380) in my standard SmartCarry holster for YEARS.
I recently drove my motorcycle from Washington State to El Paso, TX.
I never even knew the firearm was there...this is no exaggeration. This is the MOST COMFORTABLE HOLSTER MADE IN THE WORLD! Period!
I'll be ordering the new design from you soon. My 2nd SmartCarry is wearing out.
All the best,M. S. RN CCM - El Paso, TX
Good Morning Charlie,
I just wanted to say I received the holster the other day and I am quite impressed. It hides well in everything from my lounge pants to my Dress Blue Alphas and is very comfortable. If any one says its not comfortable they are not wearing it correctly. Just one word of advice to any potential owners when I first practiced drawing my S&W Model 457 .45 from it I noticed it was smooth but I had a feeling in a hostile situation the added stresses would cause issues with the draw so a couple of guys from my company loaded up the airsofts and went to MOUT town (military operations on urban terrain)and I was right at first with no practice a priority draw you tend to get hung up and take almost three seconds to wield the weapon but through several hours of familiarization drills and training I found the draw under pressure could still be had in under a second, this is not a main concern though as I have seen panic draws with a sephia holster take 3+ SECONDS and that's with a leg mount. Thank you for the excellent product and Semper Fi.
Cpl Xxxxx, X.X./0331 - Jacksonville, NCP/S: To all those who wear there pants 2 sizes to small this may not be the holster for you.
I have had one of your SmartCarry holsters for about two weeks. As I told you before, I am is a wheelchair due to multiple sclerosis.
A leg holster was the way I use to carry. It took me six movements to draw and fire my gun.
Your SmartCarry has cut that down to three movements (quick drawl), with deep concealment, safety, and comfort. In fact, I sometimes have to feel if my gun is still there.
I strongly recommend the SmartCarry to every concealed carrier whether they are in a wheelchair or not.
Thanks again…greatly appreciate your help!R. C. - Monessen, PA
I received the two SmartCarry's Monday, lets see I ordered Friday and I'm in Alaska and you are in Florida..hummm pretty fast I'd say. I have boxes of holsters, many custom made for me. I finally ended up with a pocket pistol and a fanny pack. These things are everything you say on your site and more. I used the small for my Ruger LCP yesterday. What a joy! Today I have the medium on and a small frame 45. This morning I told my wife I was packing a 45, she searched me and couldn't find it till I showed her. Thanks Guy.B. G. - Anchorage, AK
Yes sir, I received that order & I am very pleased with it. On July 31 I ordered a holster for my Glock 23, that is the order I was referring to. If for some reason that order did not go through, I would like to place it now. All the same info would apply that you have for the previous order (address, cc #, waist), except for a Glock 23. If you need anything else, please let me know. Thank you for your prompt response. Again, your product is very good, I can't believe how well it works!J. B. - Fort Worth, TX
Webmaster's note: We did receive J. B.'s second order on 07-31-09 and the medium size SmartCarry® for his Glock 23 shipped on 08-03-09.
I just received my security V for my Glock 26 and it is by far the most comfortable, most concealable holster that I have ever worn! I have already talked to several of my friends and family and they are very impressed with your product, finally I can conceal and feel comfortable!B. S. - Bellview, FL
After a lot of research, I bought this holster. I looked into tons of different holsters, too. I received it quickly and put it on to see if it was going to be comfortable enough for me. I am very picky, ask my husband. So I wanted to try it first before I knew if I was going to keep it.
The day it came, I actually cleaned house, with my Ruger LCP in it. I lugged the vacuum around, did some laundry, mopped the floor, etc. It was very comfortable. I have worn it on trips, that consisted of long hours on the road. I actually forget sometimes I am wearing a gun. If you are a lady do not hesitate to get this holster, you will love it. I can wear it with a skirt, shorts, pants, whatever. My husband and daughter do not often know I am wearing a gun unless I tell them. I went to visit my mom and dad and neither of them nor my nephews had a clue I was wearing a gun. I have wrestled with the dogs, played with my nephews, done about anything you can do in this holster. I love it. I purchased the white so I could wear it with lighter colored clothing. I really like the Smartcarry holster! I would (and have) recommend this to anyone (especially a female) looking for a holster for concealed carry.K. A. - Richmond, VA

Yes, that is true. I now have two, a regular for my medium autos and small revolvers, and I ordered an extra-wide for my L-frame 386. I put my gun on when I get dressed in the morning, and take it off when I go to bed at night. I keep it on when changing into more relaxing clothing after work. You never know it is there unless you think about it.
I have carried the 386 all week, up and down ladders, and sitting to write reports. I have ccw'd since I was 21, I am 45 today, and have tried many carry methods, and there is something to like or dislike for all of them. I like this better than any method that I have ever used. No need to worry about how small a gun needs to be. It is so comfortable, and the draw is as good as any. I was practicing yesterday, I can get it out in about 1.5 seconds. Re-holstering is not so fast, in fact it is a good bit slower, requiring both hands. But when you have to pull it out, re-holster time is not a priority.
These crazy scenarios that imply that you are going get the drop on a bad guy who wants to mug you....well, they are mostly in ones mind. A mugger usually is at close range when you realize it, usually has a knife or gun on you already, and I don't care how you carry, you usually won't have a chance in hell of getting your ccw up and shooting in time. That is the reality.
I challenge anyone who has never tried it, to just spend the $53 and get one, with a 60 day MONEYBACK guarantee. Nothing to lose, and Charlie Parrott is better than good on his WORD. He is a gun owner and carrier, and wants his customers to either be satisfied, or simply return the merchandise. I don't remember seeing, in all my years, anyone who tried a smartcarry and returned it. I'm sure it happens, I am not denying that. If you place an order today, within 5 days it is sitting in your mail box. That has happened both times for me.
I found a used-one-time smartcarry for $35, man no longer had a pistol for it, I lost the link, or I'd have 3 of them. What better praise can I give than that? I am as grizzled and critical of things as anyone else, but the proof is in the experience.
We are all here to help one another, and share experiences. If you have not tried a smartcarry, then your critique is entirely hypothetical. I won't ever need another holster for 99% of my ccw carrying. Ever. I'm sold.T. D. - Hiram, GA
I purchased a smart carry last year and I love it.
I wear a lot of sweats in the winter and it's the perfect holster. I am wearing it now, even with shorts (a little easier to wear with elastic in the waistband of the shorts not as comfortable otherwise.). I will not hesitate to purchase another one.B. M. - Willow Grove, PA
I am so impressed with your product. It fits great and supports the Colt perfectly. My wife has been out of town and arrives home in an hour. I am anxious to see if she can tell I am carrying. Thanks so much for the help with the order!D. O. - Oviedo, FL
Thanks Charlie,for the fast delivery on my holster. My order confirmation was on the 10th and I received my holster today the 15th of june,2009. I took it out of the envelope and put it on and from that moment I knew that I finally found the perfect conceal carry holster. I can now carry all of my handguns in one deep concealment holster ie: Glock 26, Taurus PT111, Kel-Tec SPF9,and my Bersa Thunder .380. I like to alternate what I carry. I guess I can give away all my other IWB and paddle holsters. It's so comfortable I hardly know it's on. My wife doesn't even know that I have it on yet. I'll tell her later. A very satisfied customer....E. L. - Harvester,MO.
Charlie, I called and talked to you on Tues. June 2nd at 8:30 am and told you that I wanted to order a Smartcarry. You advised me to order online as you were swamped with orders. So I ordered when I hung up the phone and figured it would be awhile before I received it. Then 3 days later its delivered from Florida to Ohio. Wow, thanks for the quick shipment.
I had already read on how to wear it and watched Youtube videos. So I put it on and put my Glock 19 in the holster and made several adjustments and just couldn't find the "sweet spot" I'm 5'7" and weight 195 so I have a belly. I found it comfortable to wear low while standing but when I would sit in my car, the handle would push against my belly and did not feel good. But if I raised up the holster to ride higher, it felt better.
Then on a forum, I read that instead of standing and putting on the holster with the velcro in front and then turning it around, that you should try to do the same only sitting. I tried this and then realized that I was putting the holster on to tight! A couple more minor adjustments and bingo, I think I finally got it!
I walked into the local gun shop this morning to get some ammo and the guy at the counter is an off duty LEO. I ask him if he thought I was carrying. He studied me for a minute and said,"If you are, I can't tell it!" He was totally surprised when out came the Glock! Sounds like he is going to order one. I also showed it to a friend of mine that is a pilot for American Airlines and went thru all the training to carry on the plane. Not sure what you call his credentials but he has a badge and the whole 9 yards.
I explained to him how a lot of the Federal Air Marshals are now using these and then he tried it on with his duty weapon. He instantly fell in love with it and I know for sure he will be ordering one. And I also know another guy that told his Wife to order him one for Father's Day. Sounds like you're going to be busy for quite awhile!
Thanks Charlie,B. C. - Ceina, OH
I've had my smart-carry for over a year and I love it! I wear it nearly every day and well, I just have nothing but great things to say about it. It's comfortable, secure, and definitely conceals my guns without a hitch! It hides everything from a Colt 1911 to my Kahr PM9 with the same ease. I especially like it when wearing shorts!
Thanks again - I will be buying another one soon just because I want a back up!
All the best,M.T. - Grand Rapids Michigan
We have enjoyed the articles in Concealed Carry Magazine on the holster issues.
If an individual is seeking to carry concealed, comfortably, with reasonable access in all but the statistically improbable situations, the SmartCarry holster is "the" answer.
However, as with any choices, it comes down to personal preference regardless of all the the good reasons for any given holster.
The information the experts provide in the Concealed Carry Magazine, is important in the need to help with the continuing education of those of us who choose to protect our families and ourselves.
Keep up the good work!D. M. - Sierra Vista, AZ
Using your wear suggestions the holster fits perfectly. Both instructions, wearing it low over my privates and centering the seam helped very much.
Finally I have something I can wear with my business clothing.
I've tried several quality tuckable IWB, belly bands, holster t-shirts, and a few ankle rigs, either they did not conceal well enough for me to wear at the office/in a meeting or access was a real struggle. In the pleated Khaki's ,fitted shirt, no jacket, environment where I work the SmartCarry worked where nothing else did.
Thank you, again.S. G. - Cincinnati, OH
Thanks for shipping my holster so quickly. I wonder if many of your customers, as I did, laugh out loud with delight the first time they strap it on and pull up their pants? All the reviews rave about the SmartCarry, of course, but it's hard to imagine exactly how it works and feels. Where's that extra real estate coming from? But I tried it with my Glock 30 and my favorite jeans and did the LOL thing. I see what you mean about how pleated khakis help the disguise, too. Very comfortable from the first wearing--followed your directions to wear low (but not too low).
I'm a totally delighted customer,P. P. - Temecula, CA
Good afternoon Charlie,
The holster just got in today (Saturday) quick turn-a-round. It is everything you said it would be. Very nice. Thanks for the quick shipment.
Regards,R. P. - College Park, GA
Just a quick note to let you know how happy I am with my Smart Carry. I received it last Saturday and have worn it everyday since. I wear dress clothes for work and spend many hours in my car, the comfort in fantastic. I forget my Glock 27 is even there. Also, I find the draw very quick and natural, with some practice (unloaded of course) I'm under 2 seconds. I do not have one negative thing to say about your product. Great Job! I have told my co-workers about the Smart Carry, and they all want one too. Thank You very much.
Sincerely,J. W. - Ida, MI
My left hand replacement holster arrived today. The right handed holster that was shipped to me in error will be going out in tomorrow mornings mail.
This holster feels and works great. The SmartCarry is the holster I have been looking for, for a long time. Wish I had tried it sooner.
Also doing business with you has been a pleasure. Your customer service is without peer in your attention to customer satisfaction. You will be my first choice when I have future holster needsG. M. - Acworth, GA.
