Every now and again something comes around that appears to be too good to be true. Okay, you known darn well you shouldn’t buy it, because you know the darn thing is not going to live up to the hype, but, you cast caution to the wind and pull the trigger (figuratively speaking). So it went with the Sticky Holster for me.
On the video the demonstrator put the holster in place in a pair of jogging shorts and then jumped up and down and ran and then drew flawlessly from the holster. The holster, on the video, stayed put.
“Sure it did,” you’re saying. Well, videos don’t lie. So I bought it.
So, here’s the theory of operation of the Sticky Holster. It has some sticky foam on the outside (like those things that hold your iPhone in the car) and it’s supposed to hold it up next to your body and your pants at belt level. As long as something like stiff elastic or a belt goes around your midsection, the Sticky is supposed to work.
Color me skeptical. But I ordered the holsters.
So, I got the holsters (1 for my Glock 19 and one for my S&W M&P 9) and loaded both weapons and put them in the holsters. I tried the M&P first. I used a standard gun belt at 3 o’clock, and bent over, jogged, twisted, turned, kicked my legs, you name it, I could not get that holster to displace. Every time I drew from it, it worked flawlessly.
I did the same thing with the Glock 19. It worked flawlessly for staying in place and drawing. And it is absolutely the most comfortable concealed carry holster on the market, especially when seated or riding in a car.
“So, what’s the downside?”
You knew there was going to be a downside, didn’t you?
The downside is that it is almost impossible to re-holster without using both hands. Thus, training with the holster in a class is probably out. You are not going to be able to do it. That’s especially true when you’re concealing in a pair of running shorts or jogging pants where the holster is held in place using the drawstring. The drawstring collapses the holster at the top making reholstering an Olympic Challenge event.
But ignoring, for the moment, the fact that it is difficult to reholster, I am absolutely amazed at how good the holster really is. And it gets better.
