Ultimate Concealed Carry
Two For The Road.
When I was younger, like most new cops, I couldn’t wait to carry a gun off-duty. I knew what a responsibility it was but let’s face it, for any 22 year old, it’s a pretty cool privilege. With time and experience, I realized this responsibility could also be a bit of a burden. Don’t get me wrong, I’m the first to say we live in a dangerous world and you’re a fool if you don’t carry a gun, if allowed to do so.
I admit it can be a little tedious trying to conceal a handgun and spare magazine — especially when you live in warmer climates. For this reason I’m always looking for new ways to comfortably carry a full-sized handgun. That’s why I was so excited to try a couple of new holsters from Ultimate Concealed Carry (UCC).
UCC’s flagship holster is the Hide-It, an inside-the-pants holster. That it sits inside your pants is about all it has in common with typical IWB designs. What makes this holster unique is the phone case it’s attached to, and how it rides in the waistband. The holster sits below the point you bend at your waist, and is held secure by a large metal clip looped over the belt and attached to the phone pouch.
The beauty of this design is in the comfort. You can carry a full-size 1911 in your blue jeans and have no problem sitting at your desk or driving a car. The holster is placed inside the front of your pants on the off side, making it more of a modified crossdraw holster. If you’re a right-hand shooter, you’ll wear the holster over your left thigh.
An obvious way to draw the gun is by reaching inside your pants with your gun hand and pulling the gun out of the holster. However, an even faster way is using your non-gun hand for a little help. Pull up on the phone pouch with your off-hand and the gun will come up simultaneously, allowing for a faster draw. If your off-hand is already in your pocket, simply push up on the holster with it and achieve the same effect.
The Hide-It fits a wide variety of handguns and the cell phone case is interchangeable. If you get a new phone there’s no need to fret over your old case not fitting your new techno-leash; the cell cases come in four different sizes. Simply remove the cell case that no longer fits and call UCC for the proper size. I’m not implying the case will be free, just pointing out you won’t have to buy a whole new holster … which means breaking it in.
