    I just picked up a Clip Draw for my dad for x-mas. He carries a S&W 642 J-frame, but does not like holster. As of now, he just shoves it in his waistband, and I thought this would be a good gift for him since it will not add anymore bulk, but keep it more secure.

    Does anybody have any experience with these? If so, how do you like them? I was also thinking of picking up a universal for when I get a P3AT. :x:

    5 pound trigger on the p3at + no covered trigger = bad to me

    I know some guys like the hip grip for their revolvers too, might want to look at those.

    I'll be rocking one for boot carry for a 3AT eventually, but I can't find a good deal on the fucking pistol :mad:

    They're still working out the bugs. They released 100 of 'em a month or so ago then quietly recalled them. Looks like some things didn't translate from prototype to production. A couple people on the Keltec boards have already sent theirs in twice.

    Oh, I personally don't like to carry anything without the trigger guard covered. if he doesn't like holsters, then he hasn't used a good one that fits his body.

    My dad used to carry with a clip draw and swore by it.

    I bought a Clip Draw for my G17 and wasn't impressed. But then again, a full-sized gun isn't really ideal for clipping to your pocket. Duh.
    I took it off and will probably just wait until I get a smaller CCW gun.

    He carries other guns in holsters, larger frame .40 and .45's. Just doesn't like the bulk of a holster for a little gun like the J-frame.

    I carry and have carried with the clip draw on both the P32 and the p3at for the past 3-4 years without issue.. It is one of the best ways to carry those guns IMO.

    I have a clip on my 3AT and I would have it no other way.

    As for the trigger pull, it's fairly taut on that little gun, I don't think it'll be going off accidentally. Of course, it never goes in a pocket with anything, just in the belt so I don't see how anything would get in there anyway. When I draw it my finger rests alongside the frame, not on the trigger, so it's not really in danger of going off I don't think.

    I have been meaning to get one of these things for the 1911 but heven't done it yet....

    Anyone know about the translation of a clip to a "holster"? I was told that it sorta qualifies to cover the law about concealed carry requiring a holster but I haven't heard that from the sources I trust to keep me outta jail yet.
