EAA Abdo Conceal Carry Rig

Abdo

EAA has a new product for concealed carry. It is a holster/box for your pocket .380 ACP pistol. It is designed to look like a smartphone on steroids and worn on the belt.

I feel as though this device falls into the “uncanny valley” aspect of design. While the uncanny valley is based on human looking creations, there is still an uneasy feeling when seeing this huge box on the side of someone’s hip. My concern is what happens when you need to use your phone? People will see you on your phone and not on your huge belt box. Sure I guess you could be important enough to have two cell phones, but you never use your giant one? It still seems a tad bit conspicuous.

From this photo, it looks like there is a barrel post, similar to the Versacarry holster. The post is inserted into the barrel, to hold the pistol in place.

    The more carry options the better.

      No more a red flag to thugs than a shirt tail hanging out, I suppose.

    If I were a thief and saw that, I would quickly assume it’s a cell phone and something I should consider taking.

    That picture with the smiling lizard. That’s not real is it? You can’t print that.

    Put a Medic Alert symbol on the side…or is there a Thug translation for colostomy bag?

    I think a stoner (NOT that Stoner) lizard is maybe not the best mascot. Maybe.

      Looks like he’s humping the product, hat waved in the air, “yippie-kai-yay” style. Definitely bizarre marketing.

    This interests me.

    The nature of my job makes ankle carry my only ankle carry is a viable option, but everyone’s got weird stuff hanging off their belts: phones, flashlight-and-multitool pouches, tool pouches, radios, etc.

    I always wear my shirt untucked, too, so it would be mostly concealed all the time, but if someone saw a glimpse of it they wouldn’t immediately think “Gun!”

    I’ve used the sneaky pete for months now, I’d rather just the pouch look. It works great.

    It could easily pass for an insulin pump or a Holter monitor,

      I like the way you think. Hello, fellow social ninja.

    It looks like a hard plastic version of the SneakyPete.
