The Betty is a thermoplastic In The Waistband, holster that is molded to fit each specific gun. I personally use The "Betty" for my Smith & Wesson J Frame revolver.
What I Like About It:
- It covers the trigger guard completely. As I've said before, safety is a huge thing for me and I really want my holsters to cover the trigger guard. The "Betty" does that.
- Its small. I mean, fit in the palm of your hand small.
- It is comfortable. It is so lightweight and small that you barely know its there.
- The hooks are strong and will hold tightly to your waistband without a belt.
- The cant is adjustable. You can move it to virtually any position you want.
- It is versatile. While it may not be the most comfortable way to wear it, it can be clipped to the inside of a boot or to the inside divider of a *purse and worn that way.
- While the hook is strong and the cant is adjustable, the trade off is that sometimes with extended wear, the screw on the hook will need to be tightened. No biggie - just be aware of that or it can get a little sloppy.
- The retention. While it does a good job of holding the gun in place during normal activities, if turn upside down, the gun will fall out. If the retention were better, this would be a perfect holster.
As for concealment. As I've said before, I find concealing even a very small gun a huge challenge. The Betty is not perfect. In some clothing it will print, but I've worn it for quite a while and no one has ever mentioned seeing it. In fact, people who know I carry sometimes ask me where it is.
