A New Breed of Concealed Carry — Versacarry Revolver

By Dave Dolbee published on in Firearms, Gun Gear, Reviews, Safety and Training

I love the smell of leather. It is distinct, not really sweet, but pleasing, and reeks of manliness. I miss it, but not so much that I would give up the simplicity and minimalistic approach of a Versacarry holster.

Versacarry Revolver Holster

Versacarry holsters are a unique and innovative new way carry concealed.

Holster is almost a misnomer, because Versacarry is nothing like a traditional holster, it is the ultimate IWB (inside the waist band) carry system however. First off, there is only one side to the Versacarry. The clip goes over the belt, the gun and holster inside the waistband and the side of the gun rides against the body or undershirt.

The fact that the holster is one-sided is a problem for some because the exposed trigger guard. Properly inserted, I have never found this to be an issue. In fact, I have squatted, jumped, rolled, wrestled, readjusted and just about anything else I could think and never found it to be a problem.

Accidental discharges happen at two critical times. The primary period is when holstering or re-holstering the weapon. This is easily avoidable as long as you follow the instructions and attach your weapon to the holster before clipping it in your waistband. This is not a big deal because in a normal concealed-carry situation where you won’t be drawing and re-holstering your gun.

The second is during the draw. Keep your finger off the trigger; practice your dry fire drills, and do not be stupid by trying to be a quick draw artist. Always practice with the following mantra in mind. “Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast. Fast is lethal.” Each step in its own time and rhythm, but remember, it all starts with slow. Do not try to rush or skip the first step; it will come in time.

Versacarry has recently introduced designs for revolvers.

Plan B – Carry a Wheel Gun!

Similar to models for semi-autos, the new Versacarry Revolver holsters are sized for caliber and for length. The pistol is held to the holster via the spring action of the plastic and metal retention rod that inserts into the barrel. The attachment is solid. The rod is made slightly smaller (0.015″) than the pistol’s barrel diameter for a good fit. After the first few times the gun is drawn, the fit becomes perfect; the rod is long enough to ensure the pistol remains secure.

Beyond the ability to use one holster for a host of different guns, the Versacarry allows the gun to be carried deep or more shallowly, depending on model and how you need your gun to ride your belt line. The new design also encapsulates both sides to the trigger guard eliminating the aforementioned concerns.

The Versacarry is one of the most innovative pistol concealed carrying devices available. It weighs next to nothing, is strong, easy to attach, and offers one of the smoothest draws I have ever experienced. The Versacarry also offers a no questions asked replacement policy that is hard to beat.

Most of us have a number of holsters in our carry ‘wardrobe.’ Many are likely discarded in a box or forgotten drawer. We also have the A-list drawer—specific models for specific guns or occasions. The old friend—proven and trusted above all others. The Versacarry looks so simple you want to hate it, but works so great you’ll fall in love with it. No, it’s not my exclusive concealed-carry holster solution, but it is my day-to-day preference.
