    Why All The Preoccupation With The Remora Holster?

    Well I ordered one for my G27 today along with a mag pouch. I need one to try while waring shorts around the house and maybe summer carry. I am not sure it will work or me, but thought I would give it a shot...... I guess we'll see.

    If not I will be in the market for a "pocket pistol (read as CM9)" for house and shorts carry.

    I'm a Remora convert. Never much cared for IWB however once I purchased one, I love it. And I carry a heavy gun. I wouldn't use it without a belt for everyday carry but I have had zero issues with it. Reholstering for training purposes is not really part of defensive carry training, if I have to unholster it, it won't need to go back in, so to me, that point is moot. I just slip it out and re-insert it into my beltline. Going to order that 10ART with the full sweat shield for summer carry right now since they are having a sale. Never tried to tuck over it, but around here it doesn't much matter if say, I go to the barber shop and take off my jacket for a cut, they see it, they also carry. So we get to talk guns during my haircut. I love Idaho.

    Why All The Preoccupation With The Remora Holster?

    For anyone debating whether or not to get one they are currently running a 20% off sale for Saint Patrick's Day.

    I've used my Desantis Nemesis pocket holster for my 642 in the same manner as a Remora for several years. It works for me IWB unless I'm doing really physical work.

    Practicing my presentation multiple times daily is a huge part of my defensive carry training, so a holster which makes multiple draws cumbersome and tedious isn't going to work for me.

    I bought one for my 9c and wore it a few times, very well constructed holster but it just wasn't for me.

    Just like with ANY holster, you must take care to wear it in the manner it was meant to be worn. Sure, you can use a Remora with athletic shorts or sweatpants, but don't expect it to stay in place for anything more than walking around. I have carried my Glock 23 and Ruger LC9 around in Remoras for at least a year and mine have never moved on me while wearing appropriate clothing. If your pants/shorts are too loose in the waistband you could have issues with clip holsters as well. I have worn my Remoras while working in the yard, canoeing, jogging, working on the car, playing with the kids on the floor, and even did a round of burpees just to see if it would move.

    This review has videos of someone doing forward rolls, side rolls, and even a handstand while carrying in a Remora.

    Actually, the tuckable version is very easy to tuck a shirt around it. That is why I went with a Remora. At my work, I need to wear a dress shirt, tucked into my pants. While I could have had a traditional IWB with a clip on my belt, I work in an environment that is very liberal (read...anti-gun), so I didn't want that mysterious clip on my belt just waiting for someone to ask what is that clip for. With the tuckable Remora, no one knows it is there, and it doesn't move. I have a video made (just haven't posted it yet) on a review of the tuckable Remora. Maybe I will get around to posting that someday.

    Seems this conversation is a repeat of one I heard in the late 80's about...those new-fangled plastic pistols. Try one if you haven't, wear one if you like it, send it back if you don't. Simple huh? Me? I LIKE 'EM. (And I'm a stubborn, hard-to-convince, stuck-in-my-ways ol' pistolero). They haven't replaced my Milt Sparks SS2H and all my Galco models aren't in the dead holster box, but the sticky little Remoras have their advantages.

    I didn't like mine when I got it, preferred my hybrid kydex, but I started using the remora more and more, and now I use it all the time. Quick, easy to put on, easy to remove when needed, and infinitely adjustable. Not to mention universal for different guns. If my Remora cost the same as my Crossbreed holster (meaning no cost savings), I would buy the Remora again.

    Why do you assume he was wearing casual shorts or sweats while playing with his kids? Why assume he wasn't wearing "it in the manner it was meant to be worn".

    I did not mention what he was wearing at the time.

    If you see a conclusion, be sure to jump at it, OK?

    I guess by some of us stating our opinion about a holster we are being placed in the novice ranks and should be ignored. IMO, it takes a very narrow minded individual to believe that if it works for them it should work for everyone. As I stated early on the holster does not meet my carry needs and was placed in the very large box of scarcely used well recommended holsters stored in my garage. Nuff said.
