    Not so "sticky."

    Tried out my Sticky holster for the first time yesterday with my Tomcat .32acp and found that it would shift positions on my body--- slid down about 2". Am I doing something wrong? Had on long pants and put the Sticky on my skin and had my shorts over it, pants and a belt and it still moved! Their site has many telling how they did all kinds of movement and it NEVER MOVED! What gives??

    I don't know, I just ordered one of those things due to good reviews, I hope it's all not just hyped up BS. We'll see when it gets here, I'll post a review of my experience with it.

    Strange, I wore mine in nothing more than draw-string gym shorts all day while installing flooring and it stayed put. I've had nothing but good experience with Sticky Holsters since I began using them. Most of the time, I don't even put on a belt, just tuck it wherever into the waistband of my jeans and it's good to go.

    You can make "Mexican Carry" work, and some people do. That doesn't make it a proper and safe way to carry a gun. I bought a Remora out of curiosity and thinking it might work for driving. It will serve that purpose but even seated while driving it tends to shift from original positioning. You will of course do as you please but my suggestion for a safely carried gun is to use a good belt holster. I don't trust these clipless IWB holsters much more than I trust "Mexican Carry" as an all day carry method.

    For "Mexican carry" I prefer the trigger guard kydex jobs, like the MIC from Glocktech and the other from Dale Fricke dont remember the name right now.

    My feeling is you need belt loops or SOMETHING to make a holster truly 100% secure. I would not carry without them, period.

    My Remora keeps my Kimber ultra very secure with jeans and a belt. It can shift slightly if I am getting up and down alot. I probably wouldn't wear it out and about with sweatpants unless drawstring was very tight this primarily in case I had to run then it may move. Great like that for around the house gun draws clean holster stays put. I would think with a lighter weight gun it would hold nicely in about any clothing.
