    Apparently you've never tried one, Cheap, Very comfortable, more versatile than a clip holster, doesn't move. Can't really beat them as long as your carrying an appropriate ccw gun.

    I feel the same way about hybrids and AIWBs.

    +1 on everything

    I didn't understand at first either. I wanted a holster that I could put a little deeper in for better concealment and I figured for about $25 it was worth a shot.

    Since the first purchase I have bought two more for other guns. They are great little holsters

    To me it's a quick Mexican carry to the mailbox and back and convenient crossdraw carry on long driving trips. Nothing more.

    You can stick it in your sweatpants, go jogging, throw in your pocket, wear it with jeans, with a little skill you can even tuck in around it. It is just super versatile and comfortable, best of all its cheap.

    The Remora Holster works well for many but not for all and I am one that it does not meet my carry requirements.

    If it can hold a 30 oz k-frame snubbie in place securely, I would be interested. I always hear how good they are with lighter guns.........

    THIS!^^^^^^^ Used in a proper way, the small, comfortable, inexpensive and effective Remora is a good holster. Some carry large guns, some small. I don't know I'd trust it with a large, heavy weapon but for my Glock G26 9mm or Bersa Thunder 380 it's great. AND IT WORKS! I have one for a small Taurus 5-shot .357 revolver but mainly use it between the seat and console in my van. If you get one, get it with the sweat shield which gives a bit of a higher back between the gun and skin. Extra gripping surface and protection for the weapon from sweat. Win-win.

    i think because it's a new concept in IWB carry that seems to work for most folks (not chuckusaret, though), i.e. IWB carry with no physical attachment between holster and pants/belt.

    one of the problems with IWB is that with traditional holsters it can be hard to place the holster exactly where you want it. the Remora makes it possible to position the holster where it is most comfortable for you (within reason, i'd guess).

    it also allows the user to place the gun in different carry positions, such as behind the hip, appendix carry, or cross-draw, all with the same holster.

    it's cheap - $33 for mine.

    i do need to use both hands to re-holster the gun after drawing it.

    Not true. I know someone who had theirs come out playing with his kids.

    What constitutes 'appropriate'?

    Another negative. Not very helpful to repetitive training.

    How well will it stay in or retain the gun if you end up on the ground with the BG?

    Given the proper belt retention these holsters will not move in action. The service is real quick. They are very comfortable and inexpensive. The customer service is great, You will be satisfied.

    My husband isnt as crazy about his for carrying his XD40, but I have 1 for all of my handguns. I am able to use it in multiple positions depending on the outfit I am wearing, including elastic waists with no belt. It holds the gun in a better position against me than the other IWB holsters Ive tried, and have had no issues with movement. It is also very comfortable for me, probably due to the versatility. If you are concerned about needing to reholster 1 handed, they do make a version that is stiffer & designed for that, for me, not a concern. When practicing it is not an issue to reholster 2 handed. They arent for everyone, but they do have unique features not available in other holsters.
