Safety/Danger Disclaimer

By accepting delivery of your Nova Holster product, you acknowledge and agree to the following:

GUNS ARE DANGEROUS.  The decision to carry a gun for personal protection, is a great responsibility and carries with it the risk of serious bodily harm or death. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR GUN SAFETY AND GUN RETENTION.  Keep guns out of the reach of children at all times. Lock up all guns when not using one. Never handle any gun unless you have passed an appropriate gun safety course and know how to safely handle the gun.  Because Nova Concealment LLC has no control over how our holsters and other products will be used, or by whom they will be used after purchase, Nova Concealment LLC disclaims any and all liability for incidental or consequential damages to persons or property resulting from use of Nova Concealment products.

Make sure you have the right holster for your gun.  Use of the wrong holster can cause your gun to negligently discharge, which can lead to serious bodily harm or death.  It is your responsibility to check for holster fitment and comparability with your gun before using any holster.  Please ensure you have the correct holster for your gun before use.  Although Nova Concealment LLC attempts to provide accurate holster sizing and holster fitment information, gun manufacturers often change a gun’s specifications without changing the model number or name.  Nova Concealment LLC therefore disclaims any liability for the sizing information we provide.

You the customer are responsible for ensuring you have the correct holster for your gun.  Upon receipt of and before use of your Nova Concealment holster, it is your responsibility to use an unloaded gun to check your holster for proper fit and function.  Ensure that you can easily fasten and unfasten any strap, snap, or other retention device on your holster if it is so equipped.   Also, to ensure that any retention or locking device on the holster works properly with your gun.  If the holster interferes in any way with the safety features, the trigger, the control buttons or levers, the sights, the magazine release button, the cylinder latch, or any other part of the gun, DO NOT use the holster.

DO NOT MODIFY OR ATTEMPT TO MODIFY any Nova Concealment holster in any way to make a gun fit. If the gun does not fit the holster properly, do not use the holster.  If you suspect any issues or potential problems with your Nova Concealment holster, please contact our customer service department (

Nova Concealment holsters are to be used with STANDARD FACTORY MODEL GUNS ONLY.  At no time should any gun other than the make and model of the gun for which the Nova Concealment holster is made for be used with a Nova Concealment holster.  Any attachments, changes or modifications to the frame or external dimensions of your gun (including but not limited to grip adapters, modified aftermarket triggers, trigger shoes, extended or modified hammer spurs, extra-long safety levers, target-type thumb-rest grips, extended side releases, laser sights or special trigger pulls) can make use of your Nova Concealment holster unsafe and increases the risk of a negligent discharge.

Nova Concealment LLC ensures that all our products are manufactured with the highest possible standards. Nevertheless, any product will wear out over the course of time or may become damaged through regular use.  It is therefore your responsibility to check the product for proper fit and function before each use.  Should any Nova Concealment product become worn, loose or defective, TERMINATE USE IMMEDIATELY.  

Always holster in a slow, careful and deliberate manner with all safeties engaged.  Always ensure your gun is fully seated in the holster.  NEVER put your finger on the trigger when you holster or draw your gun.  NEVER try to cock a handgun while it is in the holster.  When holstering your gun, keep your fingers, clothing and any other foreign objects away from the trigger guard and out of the holster.  Failure to take proper care when holstering can result in a negligent discharge while holstering the gun, while moving when wearing the holstered gun, or while drawing the gun.  Be sure that all aspects and parts of the holster and hardware are working properly before you holster your gun.

Not all gun carry methods are appropriate for all people.  Before you wear any holster, seek advice from a certified instructor regarding the proper placement of your holster.  Such proper placement is dependent upon but not limited to your level of experience, your intended use, and your body type. You alone are responsible for the choices that you make selecting a method of carry and for the holster’s placement and any inherent risks or consequences associated with your choice.

NEVER carry a gun with the hammer or firing pin in the rearward or full-cock position and the safety lever or button in the “off” or “fire” position. NEVER carry a gun with a round under the hammer, with a round in line with the firing pin, “cocked and locked,” or in a ready-to-fire condition. Carrying a gun in any of these conditions increases the risk of unintended discharge. You assume all risks for any and all consequences from your choice of the manner in which you carry your gun.

Ensure that your holster is properly attached to a quality belt designed specifically to carry and support the holster. While wearing the holster, frequently check the soundness of the holster body and security of the gun. Also frequently inspect retention and any related components such as loops, clips and screws.  Any product can break or fail under stress or wear over time.  It is your responsibility to continually check the functionality of your gear and to keep track of your gun.

NO ONE CAN MAKE A HOLSTER SECURE ENOUGH TO COMPLETELY PREVENT ACCIDENTAL LOSS OF THE GUN DURING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY.  You must keep one hand on the gun and holster during vigorous physical activity such as running, jumping, climbing, or tumbling. DO NOT RELY ON THE HOLSTER TO ENSURE THAT YOU DO NOT LOSE YOUR GUN.
