Hi, Scott here, from Scottworks, and today I’m here to show you our newest edition to the Scottworks line, and that is our concealed carry option.
This gives you a nice slipover cover pouch that, on the outside, looks like a utility pouch mounted on the side of your chair. The idea being here is that—simply slide it off and your weapon’s free and you’re ready to go.
That gets us to our original design of the weapon easily accessible so you can re-holster and go. Basic concept here is— “Hey, what do you want? You want my wallet? Leave me alone. I’ll get the wallet. Here’s the wallet.”
Your weapon’s free. From this position, this is great, but if you have to move, which you would—to be able to move the chair—I can’t move the chair with a hot weapon in my hand.
Our setup, with original holster adapter, allows you to very safely holster—re-holster a hot weapon, which brings me to point number two.
There’s a lot of advice nowadays on where to carry a weapon in our situation coming from able-bodied shooters. I mean no disrespect, but there is advice coming—saying cross draw, and with a concealed cover.
That’s great. Here we are. We lift our shirt up, we pull the weapon from cross draw, now we’re good. We’ve got a hot weapon. Oh, no, we have to move. Now, not only do we have a hot weapon in our hand and we can’t physically manipulate the chair, but the shirt has dropped back over our safe place to put the weapon.
Not only are we going to be crossing our body with the weapon, we can’t get it through the shirt. Let’s look at the leg option. Okay? You reach down, pull your pant leg up to pull from here. I’m about as vulnerable as a sitting duck.
If you can’t do a Texas two-step on my head while I’m leaning over, you’re pretty slow. If you’ve got the weapon out in this position, again, you’re cocked, you’re trying to defend—oh no, you have to move.
What do you do? You drop it to you lap? That’s not good. How about here? I’m crossing my bodyline. This is not good, okay? Able-bodied shooters have to remember that we cannot move efficiently without both our hands on the rims to go, which brings us to our original design.
This was designed and approved for use—USPSA matches and IDPA matches—where I’m moving from one position to another, obviously with the weapon out. If I’ve shot a couple positions, I’ve got to re-holster before I can go to the next position. This has been approved by master range officers for me to compete USPSA and IDPA.
Simply by throwing your cover, you’re free to—you’ve got free mobility and you’re good to go. Scottworksllc.com, find us on the web.
