Sticky Holsters: Belt-Free Self-Defense

Ask any veteran shooter (who used to be a new shooter), and they'll tell you that they have a drawerful of holsters somewhere that they purchased, tried and eventually abandoned for any number of reasons unique to each individual gun owner. It's universal. What's more, most traditional holsters are going to require that you wear a belt--if not a dedicated gun belt, then at least a sturdy one. This is also a not-inconsiderable purchase. Sticky Holsters has a different solution: belt-free, tool-free, no special expertise required. 

How do they work? Well, simply, they're sticky. Crafted of a tacky (but latex-free) backing material, these holsters literally just stick in your waistband and there they stay. This allows the user to do something very unique with the Sticky Holster: experiment. Rather than having to purchase a separate rig for every possible carry position and then evaluate how comfortable it is for you, you can simply stick and unstick the holster until you find a position that works for you. Adjust the cant, adjust the angle, even adjust your pants after a big meal--the Sticky Holster stays there.


What's even more interesting for beginning shooters is that the Sticky Holster is actually a modular system. There's no component that won't work with another component. So if you would like to employ a belly-band or thigh strap for your gun, just use the Sticky Holsters models of both or either ...  your existing Sticky Holster will work just fine with it!

These holsters come in 30 different sizes, covering just about every common handgun on the market (and some that aren't very common at all). New for 2022 will be an optics-ready version, so you can use a Sticky Holster even if your gun has a reflex sight mounted. MSRP $29.95; stickyholsters.com
