Thumbs up My favorite holster yet!?

Might be the best holster ever for "Deep Cover yet", i only carry IWB with Tuck-able holsters for yrs and the ones i have work quite good, except for the clip hanging over the belt thus mine
(have several for diff guns) i use the C Clips which are the least noticeable there is.

Have known about Remora but these have issues with rubbing the skin if U don wear a t-shirt and the Sticky holsters are better but the outside material wears off easy.

Now the Comfort Cling seems to solve all these issues, comes currentlu 1 size only but fits many guns, just bought & got it yesterday and so far i am impressed it fits my Shield with Crimson trace laser 100% as well as my Glock 27 and my PF9, also fits the 2.0 but barrel sticks out at bottom.

The have a 2 week return policy, no questions and a 1 yr. 100% replacement warranty, so i will be using it for several guns and report back but so far its "Great"!

It has been tested against the Remora and Sticky holsters and is best in all aspects!

I use the Remora ones myself. I was out in the back last night with my 45 Shield in the holster between my underwear and jammie bottoms checking for coyotes.

Not much info there. Why would you not use one. Do you have experience with them? Known issues? Not trying to start any arguments but I feel that if somebody jumps in saying something like that they should elaborate. Even if it's just personal tastes.

I did a Ton of research & watched about 1 dozen vids on the Holster and all reviews were great! It seems to have come out earlier this yr. and the comp. has a great rep for making great holsters at economical prices.

That's a reasonable question and there are a few reasons:
  • Not formed specifically to the gun. This is not really a deal breaker, but holsters that are formed to a specific gun, hold the gun more securely and let it go easier without compromising the retention.
  • Doesn't stay open when the gun is drawn. The majority of negligent discharges (ND) happen when re-holstering. This type of holster requires two hands to holster the gun. While I'm sure it's possible to do safely, there is a high probability of muzzling the support hand while re-holstering. If you just shot the bad guy, it's probably a good idea to put your gun away before the police arrive. Trying to re-holster at this point, adrenalin pumping, nervous about what happens next, etc., is difficult enough without wrestling with the holster. You don't want to become another victim of your own gun.
  • No way to attach it to a belt. It would suck to have to present to defend yourself and have the whole holster come with the gun. The trigger is covered and that would make it impossible to shoot. This costs time and maybe your life. Sure, the design is such that this might not happen, but it could.

I guess this is supposed to be used for pocket or appendix carry. I would do neither. Both represent their own problems aside from the holster itself.

Customer reviews must be taken with a grain of salt. Most don't think of what I've posted above. There are plenty of people who will say, "I've used X for 75 years and never had a problem." Well, have they actually used it or just carried the gun around and never had to present? Have they used it in extensive training where they had to present and re-holster a hundred times a day? For that matter, what qualifies them to say any product is good? So, just like my first post in this thread, customer reviews are usually not helpful. Just saying you like it means nothing. You have to say why and what makes it good.

Yeah, I failed in the first post. Sorry for that. Does this answer it better?

Thumbs up

U are correct in all ur points and i thought about them all and they are very valid.

The is a vid where dude tested a Remora holster and 4 out of 10 x when gun was pulled the holster came out with the gun in it, on the Sticky holster it happ 2 in 10 x.

I would never use that holster and a gun it fits in a pocket, since gun is large & heavy and it is recommended to be worn in tight jeans but preferably with a belt.

Just spent last 2 hrs. hiking/walking with the dogs and used holster with my Glock 27 in the 2 O'clock position and did not have any issues or holster moving at all.

Had it inside pants over my underwear pants and my shirt over gun & holster in the same position as i usually carry my 1996 made Galco Horsehide Ultra deep cover holster and it did just as well and (to me) the Clinger actually is more comfortable.

I own a Remora and use it occasionally, mostly when wearing athletic shorts with an elastic waistband. Works okay but not for everyday use.

I have a Comfort Cling. It's very comfortable to wear. It works good with jeans, it stays in place very well. When wearing shorts with a lighter belt, it stayed in place, but I kept feeling it wasn't quite as secure. I was wearing it in the 4 o'clock position. It may not work for all occasions, but it's a nice option. It's also what I keep the gun in around the house.

Been wearing my Glock 27 with extended 13 rd. mag in my Comfort Cling and gun/holster never moves at all!

Love it and no more J hooks or C clips or the "Worst" there is Metal Clips over the belt (never fooled with those)!

Thinking about getting another soon!

Update! Been wearing the Comfort Cling now for a few weeks with different guns and it is my "Best" IWB Tuck-able ever, wore it for total 9 hrs. driving in a car yesterday and it never even moved, also never moves while jogging etc..

If it keeps doing as it is then will get another in a few months!

Just received a Clinger comfort holster and it is far superior to the Remora. Love this holster.

Was stuck driving 8 hrs again driving in my car and it stayed put and more comfortable than any Holster i have ever had!

I never wear T-shirts but always have shirt tucked in pants and the shirt over holster woks perfectly and you see noit belt clips or J or C Hooks and feels great, usually have my Glock 27 with 13 rd mag in it.

Will most likely get another soon but this 1 fits so many of my guns i am shocked!

A holster that is worn tucked in the pants without something to anchor it to the belt will one day end up at your ankle. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but one day.

Some yes but don't see how with this Clinger holster, since it always has some pressure against it like my belt, no different then my Galco horsehide holster deep cover/tuckable which i wore since 1997 and I'm did replace the over the belt hook with a very thin C clip!

So to me no different than my Galco except more comfy!

I have one of these. It works great with a GLOCK 43, and I would imagine with a Shield as well. It's a nice holster. Clinger is a great company; their Stingray holster is excellent and the no-print looks like a good holster too.

There is no way I'd consider wearing a Clinger IWB while doing anything resembling physical activity. As someone pointed out, a holster not clipped to your belt will eventually allow the gun to drop into your pants. There isn't some magical stickum on the outside of this thing, it's friction.

Interesting concept for a holster. I do wonder as one poster pointed out about wear over time. Here is another holster that appears very versatile without the need for a belt.

That holster uses 2 magnets instead of a belt! So for me it is useless since i cant tuck my shirt over gun/holster and $50. isn't cheap.

Yeah, it's not perfect but what holster is? What I like is the fact that it's versatile, easy and quick to put on and take off. The strong magnets used and quality leather and stitching seem like they won't wear out anytime soon. Take it off and attach it to something metal in the vehicle if you wish. $50 bucks is $50 bucks, but there is a host of holsters out there that are priced similar and even more. According to their website they make a high ride model that sits a little higher and allows you to get an easier purchase on the gun upon drawing from the hoster for those that don't need deep concealment. Not only that but it will work for OWB for those that want to carry that way. I have no experience with JM4 holsters but have seen a number of videos that make it seem intriguing.
