FAQ

Here is a collection of information and some frequently asked questions about Zero Carry.

  • Retention

    – Coefficient of friction between cotton blend fabric and steel (ZC) greater than steel on plastic (conventional holster)
    – Zero Carry version 2.0 has a new optional retention strap. Adjust the overlap to dial in your preferred amount of retention.

  • Sweat

    – Regardless of holster solution and IWB holster will expose the firearm to moisture. Regular and proper maintenance is critical.

  • Trigger guard

    – Zero Carry version 2.0 has an integrated trigger guard. Regardless of which Zero Carry you choose, your brain, hands, belt and pant seam are the trigger guard. As a gun owner, you should have an intimate knowledge of your gun, holster and even the clothing you wear and how they work together as a system.  Your trigger has substantially more possibilities for accidental contact outside your pants/holster than inside. Always be aware of possible snags or entanglements.

  • Barrel blockage

    – The barrel rod is design to be a clearance/slip fit with all calibers .32 ACP and up. In the very unlikely event that it should become damaged, it will fall free of the barrel. Probability of ZC barrel rod getting stuck in your barrel is infinitely less that your cleaning rod getting stuck in it!

Can a user carry with ZERO CARRY cocked and locked?

No, we do not recommend carrying cocked and locked – a loaded mag is acceptable though. Like many in the firearm industry, we have adopted safety warnings that insure anyone who uses a firearm is safe. We cannot know the level of firearm or safety training a user may have, so for safety, we recommend not carrying a firearm cocked and locked. Again, a loaded mag is acceptable though. Any user should always fully read their firearm’s instruction manual and carry under the manufacturer’s recommendations.
