Conceal carry holster for middle of back

Recommended Posts

I have a customer ask for a conceal carry holster for the middle of his back. I have tried to modify a pattern I have that is for a minimal semi-automatic holster. It is for a small block. Does anyone have a pattern they could share? I want to put belt clips where the slots for a belt are so It fits inside the pants.

Pappy, . . . just a piece of info, . . . before you make that for him, . . . make sure he knows the danger of wearing a handgun directly behind his spine.

If he goes down hard in any kind of accident or confrontation, . . . better than 50/50 he will be in a wheel chair for the rest of his life.

I don't make them myself, . . . for that single reason.  I do not want to be part of a person being maimed for life.

May God bless,

Dwight

Thank you did not think about that. Can it be off to the side but still considered in the back?

The "could happen" is WAY over blown these days. 

I should maybe stop making holsters, I guess?  If someone fell on their hip, they could get hurt badly.  WAIT.. if somebody fell on the OTHER side, they could cause a discharge at them or someone else.  I shouldn't sell my car when I get a new one, since somebody could get in an accident with it.  

AT SOME POINT, people have to be responsible for what they do.  The store sells me Snickers bars.  I eat them like a junkie.  But if my neighbor is allergic to peanuts, this does not warrant the store NOT selling SNickers bars.

But for THIS rig, sounds like you bout got it whooped - you alrady have a "close" pattern, and you already know how you want to build it... so... just a matter of making one, see how you like the look and feel of it.

if someone doesn't know the dangers of carrying a gun then they souldnt carry one.  If they shoot themselves its because of their own stupidity sp they deserve it.

Yes, . . . as long as it is to one side or the other of the actual spine itself, . . . it is much safer.

And you can disregard the asinine comments of folks who put profit above the safety of their customers.  Accidents do happen, . . . non lethal encounters also happen, . . . falling backward on a handgun underneath your spine can be a serious problem.

May God bless,

Dwight

I was gonna just by-pass that. Changed my mind.  I looked that up, seriously. 

If you read the definition of "asinine", it sounds like they're talking about a guy who gives psuedo-morality lectures under the guise of "just a piece of info" ... without even touching anything resembling a legit response to the guy's question (by way of reminder, the question was "Does anyone have a pattern they could share?")
