Interesting holster location. I don't remember I've ever been padded down over my groin area before. It would provide nice concealment. However, it is a very slow draw, and a very dangerous to put back
Use this type of holster (Thunderwear, actually) with a G27 and S&W642 on particular occasions. No problem and I still have my junk. Obviously, this setup is used for deep cover so you're not going to be drawing and re-holstering very much with live rounds. It's easiest/safest to put the gun in the pouch then button/zip up, but other than that it's fine.
I use this all the time with a Kahr MK9 and a snub, and I don't understand how you can shoot your own junk off, it takes a very deliberate trigger pull to fire both guns. I carry condition one, with no qualms whatsoever. It helps to have a respect for the firearm, and always being careful when drawing and reholstering, but seriously, how could it go off?
I'm thinking about packing a Ruger Alaskan .500 and tuckin' it down deep in a smart carry. I'll have to pop a hole in the bottom so the barrel can go down one side of my pants leg. Not sure if it's a 'quick deployment' set-up but it'll definitely make for some wandering eyes.
