    I stubled upon a holster today called clip draw..Its just a little metal clip that mounts to the side of your gun and removes the need for a holster. I was wondering if any of yall had seen or heard of people using them and heard any reviews?..I dont really like the idea of it being permanantly attached to my pistol but it seems like itd be nice in the summer when in light clothing.

    The only thing is clip draw does not manufacture a direct fit for my M&P just a strong removable adhesive which sticks the mounting bracket to the gun. Many people seem to like them didnt know if any of yall had first hand

    yeah those seem good havent seen that company before..i just liked the idea of not having a bulky holster even now if its warm out ill just tuck the gun in the back of my pants...just sometimes if i get out of the car i feel it may slip down through my pants and saw that the clip would secure it better

    ryan grizzle is a member on the board and has been featured multiple times in mags etc...and you get your stuff quick compared to other leather names out there ;)

    the clip is definitely better than just sticking it in your pants...my buddy carries his sig in the small of back with the clip draw

    I have a clip draw for my 1911 and it's working nicely. The one thing I've noticed is, you don't have the same comfort as you would with a standard holster because there is all the bare metal. However it is amazingly versatile in how and where you can clip it. It works in all my pant pockets, even in shorts, it clips strong side, or cross-draw effortlessly. I you are a southpaw, it would ride well in the middle of the back with no suspected problem. All and all it has been a good purchase. It's so easy to attach and take off it's nothing that can't be easily switched out. I can even slide my 1911 into a hip holster, or my shoulder rig, without having to remove the clip. I say go for it.

    On a semi-auto without a safety or decocker I prefer to have the the trigger covered.

    I have a clipdraw on my Kahr P9, and like it fine - it provides a solid fit and good retention in my jeans or shorts.

    It's not permanently attached - the clip and the 3M VHB (very high bond) aircraft tape will come off the slide without leaving any marks or residue at all. I know this because I took the clipdraw off my Kahr P40 and moved it to my Kahr P9. You have to do it the way the instructions say, or it won't come off - the adhesive is that strong -, but if you gently pry the clipdraw off with a small screwdriver (carefully . . .) then pull the adhesive straight up at a 90-degree angle to the slide, it'll peel right off.

    It works, I like it. As one poster pointed out, the trigger guard is not covered, so you have to be aware of that; it's not a problem with my P9 since it's a long DAO trigger pull.

    If I were to use one, it would only be on a gun with a double-action trigger, fairly long and stiff.
    And I'd want to mount the clip pretty far toward the rear of the gun, so my belt (or waistband of my pants) holds the gun at or above its center of mass.

    Keep in mind a loaded semi-auto will balance differently with all those cartridges in the grip area. That shifts the center of gravity back toward the rear sight.

    I used the clip attachment on my P3AT and it was great. Bought the clip draw for a Colt 1991A1 compact. I just never got into it, the 1911 is slim on its own and support was lacking. It probably has a place but I could not make it work.

    how would i get in touch w/ this ryan grizzle??

    my preferred method of carry is the small of my back, just not at all comfortable for me with it on my hip in my pants. I just ordered a IWB holster and found out i need a left hand draw holster to make up for the gun being flipped around to grab it w/ my right hand ill have to keep that in mind next time i order one..

    I have one for my glock, I don't use it much. Glock version bolts up from the rear so easy to change.

    I'm looking for a way to deep conceal and I hate IWB holsters.. They just don't fit me right.

    I tried one on a J frame and didn't care for it. The clip vibrated while shooting after being drawn. Was somewhat in the way during a reload.
