I was just curious if anyone had experience with a ClipDraw. It seems like a decent trick, but I was concerned that it might be putting additional torque on the grip bushings that they weren't designed to carry.

Has anyone heard reports of this sort of problem?

I used one for a couple of months on my Ultra Carry, and it worked OK. The only effect I noticed after removal is a slight "polishing" on the frame where the Clipdraw bent away from it to reach out to the belt. The shiney streak extends from the ',' after Kimber to the 'N' in Yonkers, but is only visible on close inspection. The clip is harder metal than the Kimber's bead-blasted aluminum frame, and polished that small streak by slightly rubbing on it.

FWIW, the Clipdraw is a cool idea, but will only really carry the pistol upright, i.e., no cant. That makes concealment a bit more difficult. The clip can also print depending on the design of the belt. Also, if the belt isn't thick or flat enough, sitting can dislodge the pistol, which will then fall out upon standing. This actually happened to me, but fortunately I caught the pistol before it dropped below my shirt. That said, I still like the Clipdraw under specialized circumstances. However, I use my VersaMax 2 virtually all the time because it is far more secure. YMMV.
