I have been thinking about getting a Versacarry IWB Holster however I have never seen one other than in ads and Videos. I have 2 concerns, one is the Trigger guard which really does not look like it would work. The other is that while watching the Video " Versacarry does not recommend carrying a round in the chamber " flashed across the screen. Not much protection for you if you have to rack the slide to shoot it...
Any advice????
Check out Video.

No advice other than to ensure that your insurance is up to date.
In other words, it's not for me. I'd rather an Uncle Mikes cloth holster that covers the gun, the trigger guard, and allows a chambered round.

I have no experience with Versacarry. What you say is true, plus you can't reholster it without looking (or even taking it out?). That said, I've read about it here and there. Seems there is no middle ground. The users either love it or hate it. I guess I'd have to ask why, in the first place, did you want to get one? Why not just a "regular" holster? Or even a Remora? The new Remora with the clip (Micro-Holster) look interesting. Like best of both worlds.

I have one ordered for my Ruger LCP and will see how it works. I figure a small pistol like that ya can't go wrong with Remora stickiness PLUS a clip. Good luck.

I have checked out a ton of holsters so far but will check out the Mikes holster and see how it covers the trigger. However some leather holsters get soft as time goes by causing accidental discharge if you are not careful. See attachment.

I will be doing some research on leather holsters but I may have to stick with my Shepherd IWB Holster that I use now. See attachment.

I bought a GALCO "Sto-N-Go" leather holster for my Glock G19-G26 and another one for my Taurus 605 revolvers. Good holsters, reinforced mouth (which I like a LOT!), Galco quality and only $26 each. I recommend them but you'd have to check to see if they make a model for the Bersa. Maybe one for the Walther PPK would work if not?

You never said why you were looking for a holster in the first place. Is the photo you posted of the worn leather holster needing replacement? I ask because that 'Shepherd' holster you also had a picture of looks like a really nice holster. Just want something new to try? :confused:

The picture I sent was not my holster, it was sent to me by a friend to show what can happen if a leather holster was not check regularly (it did cause a discharge) that also should apply to all holsters that you use.
As for my getting a new holster the answer is yes since I would like a bigger selection of holsters to choose from. I only have two holsters now, one for my Ruger SP101 standard and one for my Bersa Thunder 380 IWB. Not much to choice from so if I can not get anymore toys (cost too much) than maybe I will get a couple of new holsters to carry my old toys in...

Oh, OK. Smart! ;) If you can't get the "toys" then some accessories FOR the toys is a pretty acceptable substitute. I got my Remora "Micro" holster with the clip in the mail this afternoon. I like it so far and am gonna wear my LCP in it tomorrow. Got some pants with an elastic waistband and drawstring. I think this new Remora is gonna be perfect. The drawstring works fairly well but I figure between the drawstring AND the clip over my waistband it will be solid (the gun weighs like 8 oz!).

I did not know but learned from the Remora site that the name Remora comes from a fish called Suckerfish or Sharksucker. Cool. However it is not made of fish....
Happy carrying.

Yep, the Remora holsters are so-named because they stick like "sucker-fish"! And they do. The holsters are made from a rubber material that really, really sticks to your skin and clothes. I wore mine at first between my pants, drawers and skin just to give it a little "extra". Now I wear them between my pants and drawers and they still work well. I carry a Glock G26 in one without worrying about it. I really don't want to go larger due to weight. But I have one for my Bersa 380 that works OK. I plan to use that IF I EVER GET THAT SUCKER TO FEED RELIABLY!!! :mad:
