[Video] Bicep Carry? New Holster Allows for New Carry Position
As I’ve said in the past, I welcome innovation in the gun industry and I generally like it when companies think outside of the box, but I have to admit, I’m a little skeptical on a new product I just heard about called the ArmsBand Concealed Carry Holster.
I’m sure it could certainly have some utility for certain applications where traditional belt, shoulder holster, pocket, or ankle carry wouldn’t work, but the only thing I can think of would be inside of a vehicle, but even then, I think I’d rather go shoulder rig.
It IS innovative and maybe this will lead to more innovations in the gun carry market.
Here is the description from the company’s website:
The ArmsBand® Concealed Carry Holster straps the handgun to the underside of the upper arm positioned similar to a shoulder holster, for easy cross draw under the sleeve of a short sleeved shirt. This method of carry is very convenient, especially for the 21st century pistols like the Kel-Tec P3AT, Kel-Tec P32, Ruger LCP®, Taurus 732, Taurus 738, and a host of other new similar small hand gun offerings. A larger pocket version will be available soon to accommodate the Glock subcompacts, Kel-Tec P11 and Kel-Tec PF9, Ruger LC9™, Taurus Millennium Pro Series, Kimber Solo, Beretta Nano, Kahr CM9, Kahr CW9, Kahr CM40, Sig P290 and similarly styled pistols.
The ArmsBand® underarm holster presents a completely new way to carry a concealed handgun. It also means that carrying and drawing safely must be worked out anew. The method we have developed to draw safely, that is, always keeping the muzzle pointed away from the body and limbs of the user, is shown in the safe draw technique video while how to mount and perform a stealthy draw is shown in the mount and stealthy draw video on the video page. It is advisable to watch both.
The holster is pretty reasonably priced at $34.95, so maybe it would be worth a shot if you have a scenario where this would work that I’m not thinking of.
