    FYI-- Berami Hip Grip

    Called Berami yesterday as my hip grip was loose and wouldn't tighten further. Upon examination, the end was stripped after 30 years or so and needed a new one, could Jack [ the owner on the phone ] assist. He tells me he can, go to the local hardware store and ask for a 1" #4/40 thread pan head bolt.

    A quick trip with the old one and I had the replacement part. Grips back to operational.

    No sir, I didn't even think to ask if they had it in s/s. Hmm,

    Good response. I just wonder about the Hip-grip and the exposed trigger.

    Who remembers when triggers were often exposed in holsters. Well, NDs are statistically down I'm told.

    Geoff, I carry my Berami equipped snub in a suede pocket holster in back pockets for decades. Back in the 70's when working the streets, I did use the Berami up on the belt as it's designed. With the grip on the snub, I can carry it the way it was designed [ and have ] and in back pockets with the suede softshell protecting the trigger.

    In this manner, it can be carried AIWB, Strong side IWB, either back pocket but left pocket will be cav draw [ and it's a fast presentation that way with less elbow articulation ].

    IOW, the snub becomes a "floating" gun on my person and can be moved from one location to another based on circumstances simply because the grip becomes the holster. Never gave the grip without trigger protection a second thought AIWB or strong side.
