It is highly recommended that once the handgun has been drawn from the holster, the safest option to re-holster is to remove the empty holster from the waistband or pocket. Return the handgun to the holster in a safe manner, pointing the gun in a safe direction and keeping your finger off the trigger. Once safely holstered, return the entire system back to your waistband or pocket.

  1. Donna

    What size would I get for a SCCY CPX-3 380 & M&P 380 Shield EZ

    • Carrie Lightfoot

      For the Shield EZ 380 you will need the MD-4 Gen 1 and for the SCCY-3 the MD-1
      Have a nice day!

    After a snafu with my mailing address ( my fault), i received my Sticky holster today.
    I do occupancy verifications for various mortgage companies and sometimes the people and properties are sketchy, so my husband bought me my 1st handgun (walther ccp).
    I wear jeans and a belt in cooler weather, but shorts and leggings in the summer months.
    My usual holster is great if you are using a belt. But without one, my weapon flops around.
    So, i had jeans shorts on today when I went to the po to get the package. So, when I got home. I had a few things to bring in, so I put my gun in the sticky holster and put it in the front pocket and OMG! It stayed put!! No flopping or flipping!
    I can’t wait to get the other part for the house!
    Thanks well armed woman!

    Am probably the only person in the universe who is not going to give this 5 stars. The Sticky is a great idea and works wonderfully, but does have limitations – and big revolvers are that limit. For many reasons I carry a big revolver, 2.5lbs when loaded with ammo. and the gravity beats the sticky every time! I use mine in combination with a belly band, and by the end of the day, the weight of the gun has pulled the holster down, down, down. It doesn’t come out, completely. It offers greater support against the weight of the gun than without it. But I can’t use that sticky in just a compression shorts waist band, because it will sink down, down, down and away. So if you are using anything but the biggest, heaviest hand guns, its a FIVE star for sure. But if you are like me, you are still looking for that perfect holster set up!

    I ordered this holster about a month ago and love it. It is comfortable and easy to conceal – highly recommend!

  5. Mary

    I’ve been using this as my main holster (appendix carry) for a month now – and I love it! I like my other holster, but I have to say this one really rocks! Highly recommend the Sticky. It stays put no matter what I’m wearing, comfortable. I actually forget I’m wearing it. My only question for you is: Where is the Sticky Magazine holster? I would love to have a matching accessory for the other side, easy to reach and one I know is going to be at hand if I should ever need it. I carry a Glock 43 and hate sticking my extra mag in a zip lock in my clothing pockets or in my purse.

  6. Brenda

    Just got my sticky holster. Love it. I am a plus size and don’t wear a belt. This holster is comfortable and stays in place. Easy to draw from. Carry a Glock 19.

  7. Brenda

    Love my new sticky holstet. I carry a Glock 19 and it fits great. Easy to draw from. I am a plus sise woman ant this holster fits great. It’s very comfortable and easy to draw from. I recommend this for any size woman. About to get a smaller gun and will definitely purchase another.

  8. Connie

    I love this holster so much! I tell everyone that sticky holsters are the way to go…..the only way! I run and it works inside my running pants/leggings, sometimes I put it in my running bra, works there too. Protects the gun from sweat too. No matter what outfit you wear, this holster works. Just buy it!

  9. Michelle

    I love this holster! I’m new to conceal carry and wasn’t sure where I wanted to carry. So, I got this holster to easily try different locations. The price was relatively cheap and I would have something until I figured out what I wanted. I could then get my “main” holster. I was very surprised at how secure the holster was in my jeans with no belt. I wore it all day and hardly noticed it (I found I liked a cross draw inside the waist). You couldn’t tell I had my Glock 43 on me. The best part was how extremely comfortable it was. So I think I found my “main” holster. I will still get another holster or two for those days I want something clipped down or need a different method of concealing, but I really love this holster. I know I will be more likely to carry with this holster because of how easy it is to stick it in the waist and go and how comfortable it is. Highly recommend. And a quick thank you to the TWAW for being such a great resource.

  10. Deb

    I was apprehensive, but ordered two for different handguns. They work and are extremely comfortable! I highly recommend! Great for women AND men!

  11. Sandra

    This is great for in the purse. You should still use a separate pocket of the purse, dedicated to nothing but the gun and its holster, but this works well without adding excess bulk and it covers the trigger well.
    It also works if you are wearing slacks and want to use your pants pocket.

  12. Roberta

    I LOVE my new Sticky Holster!! Sticky Holsters are so comfortable and concealable. I like the fact that they’re made in the USA also.

  13. Carmen

    I have had my sticky holster for my Glock 43 for about 3 weeks now! I absolutely love it! It’s perfect to wear with gym shorts, leggings, and any other stretchy pants! It took a day or two to get used to it. It’s comfortable and doesn’t come out when you draw your gun. You do have to take it out to re holster your gun. Over all I love it!

  14. Susan

    I have bought several holsters and have finally found the perfect one. I use it for my Ruger LCP. It fits perfect in my waistband and it doesn’t move. Very easy to conceal. I prefer to carry on my waist, but great for in the pocket or purse.

  15. Suzy

    I have a remora for my Shiled, and just got this sticky for my LCP. I much prefer the sticky. It’s slimmer, and well- more sticky. I can use the sticky holster with leggings.. Gotta love a holster that works with leggings!

  16. Beth M

    my greatest concern with my revolver is accessibility when I need it. This holster is just what I have been looking for.

  17. CBeard

    LOVE this holster. Fits my Sig like a glove! HIGHLY Recommend. Ordering 2nd one today for hubby.

  18. Audrey

    Bought the MD2 for my Ruger LC9 with CT laser. Great fit, very comfortable and remarkably secure even with fairly loose pants. Option to carry in the right handbag is an added benefit.

  19. Peggy

    No matter how many holsters I buy (and I’ve bought a lot), I keep coming back to this one for everyday carry. I have one for each of my pistols and even though they’re getting worn, they still work just fine. Any position in the waistband or a big enough pocket, and you’re good to go. Minimalism at its best.

  20. Laurie

    This has been my favorite holster so far. It works great in my purse, waistband & pocket. It doesn’t move around & stays in quick draw position. I’ve used it with my PX4 Storm. It keeps it clean & lint free. I just recently purchased a XD-S and looked for a sticky for it. Looking forward to using it as my daily carry with convenience & versatility of the sticky holster.

  21. Karen

    Love love LOVE this holster! This is by far my favorite as it is easy to place anywhere that is most convenient (appendix, small of the back, pocket, front, large pocket) and it stays in place. I usually wear tighter clothing and this is always the holster I end up with unless I just use the clip on my Keltec and tuck it into my jeans. We have one for a Sig Sauer and it also works great. My husband uses for pocket carry as it keeps the weapon more secure without moving around a lot. Great holster!

  22. Mari

    This is one of my two favorite holsters for my Bersa Thunder CC 380. I carry on my person most of the time and this works great with snug-at-the-waist pants. However, my favorite way to use it is in my small leather CCW purse. It works GREAT to hold my pistol in the perfect position for a quick draw and keeps my weapon literally invisible. Also fits nicely and secures my pistol between the sofa cushions. This holster is quite versatile and I’m sure I’ll continue to find even more ways to use it.

  23. Cami

    I originally carried this holster when I carried a Ruger LC9. It was FABULOUS! Never had an issue with the gun slipping or sliding around in my pants, always stayed in place. I have since sold that pistol and have started carrying the Ruger LCR-X so naturally I wanted to get another Sticky to carry. So far I have not had any problems out of this holster with this revolver set up. Still stays in place, no wiggle but easily adjustable. Holster is comfortable as always. GREAT product!

  24. Rebecca

    I got the Sticky almost a year ago and it is my favorite holster. If my jeans pockets are large enough I can put it in my back pocket; my favorite way to carry. It easily stays in my waist band, but one does need to consider the ’bathroom factor.’

  25. Naomi

    I just got my sticky holster today and love it! It has stayed in place all day and my M&P fits in it perfectly. I’d definitely recommend this holster!

  26. Chris in Florida

    I really wanted to love this holster. I’ve tried and tried to get it to work for me, but I just really prefer my belly band. I think the sticky holster would probably work great if you wear tight jeans, but I wear mostly looser fitting shorts with low waistbands, and eventually the holster ends up slipping down inside my shorts, rendering my compact M&P virtually useless for quick draw. It does conform well to my gun and is easy to draw when it actually is in my waistband, but I’ve tried every different position and it’s a no go for me.

  27. Dani

    Great holster. I am able to draw my weapon with no problems at all. My jeans aren’t super tight and the holster still stays in place. I highly recommend this holster for anyone not just women. I tried the Betty but without a belt the holster continuously came out and I was unable to draw my weapon. Thanks WellArmedWoman for the great product at an unbeatable price with FAST shipping.

  28. Mindy O.

    I got this a couple days ago, and I have to say, it’s great. I like that I can place it anywhere in my waistband and it stays put. Right now I have in the appendix position, and I tried every which way to get it to budge, to fall out but it didn’t. I jumped, kicked, squatted, everything, and it stayed put right where I placed it. The gun doesn’t move around in the holster either. It fits snugly. I also find it very comfortable. My gun pulls out of the holster easily. It fits nicely with jeans. What you wear kinda has to be a little tight. I can’t wear this with my comfy pajama pants though, but that’s not really the purpose it serves. I haven’t tried it with sweat pants, but to me that’s just not something I’d try anyway. This holster is perfect for what it is designed to do. It is DEFINITELY worth $25.00. I’d have paid more if that would have been necessary.

  29. Carrie

    This one was recommended to me after speaking with representative on the phone and having a problem with another holster I ordered that just didn’t work as I had hoped it would. I like this one very much for my RUGER LCR. Love the fact that it doesn’t have a clip at all and just tucks inside my jeans and stays put even when I draw my gun. When I sit down, it does hit just a little bit in my groin, but I can easily adjust the cant a little more on an angle and it is fine. Very comfortable and it does not move.

  30. Kathy

    Okay, so a P.S. to the above (sorry about duplicate reviews). This holster is truly very comfortable. I DID order the right size. What I’m finding is that it gets better with use. Now that I’ve worn it a couple of days and, when not wearing it, stored my gun in the holster it fits and works much better. I CAN draw my gun from the holster with one hand as long as I pull it out diagonally. I know that for safety they recommend you remove the holster from your pants before reholstering; however, I’m finding that I can reholster my gun one handed now that the holster has started to conform to the shape of my gun. (I have been practicing unloaded.)

  31. Kathy

    This holster is truly very comfortable. I may have ordered mine a size too small because I found if I don’t draw my gun diagonally the holster comes out of my pants with the gun (I’ve been practicing unloaded).

  32. Teresa

    LOVE this holster! I use it for my 9mm shield. Works well inside the waistband and it also works great in a purse – it stays put when you draw your pistol! Recommend it highly.

  33. Holly

    I have several holsters for my Sig P938 but the Remora is my favorite. It’s so comfortable and it sticks to me so it stays put and I don’t have to worry about it moving. I also have their thigh holster and it’s wonderful. I prefer to wear dresses so in the summer I almost only use the thigh holster as it sticks to skin but is still comfortable. Some people say that female’s are limited when it comes to holsters but I disagree, I think that women have more options then men when it comes to ’carry’ options. Sometimes there might be a bump but typically no one stares that hard and it’s worth it knowing that you’re able to protect yourself!

  34. Amanda

    Just received this holster yesterday. Wore it to the office in my waistband today, and I still have it on me now that I’m at home – it’s that comfortable. I have a Glock 26, which is not a small gun. I purchased the FlashBang a few months ago, but my Glock is just not comfortable worn that way. Very easy to conceal with the Sticky holster. Love it! 🙂

  35. Esther

    I recently purchased this holster from TWAW and really love it! It’s a great IWB holster, even with shorts without a defined waistband. The MD-2 fits my new Sig P290 w/laser perfectly. Thank you for making so many great high quality products available for purchase in one place. Hope you decide to offer the companion super mag pouches in your store, too.

    Thank you for all that you do for women shooters!
