Range Report Belly Band Holster

Okay, so I bought one of these coz I've lost some weight and my pants and belt are a bit too large and I like to carry a little heavier gun from time to time. Also, I wanted something that didn't require a belt when I do my speed walking and other outdoor activities. Here's the link.

It works very well with a full size 1911, a Commander size and a compact. It also works well with the XD-S, the Kahr CW-9 and my Tristar T-100. It distributes the weight so that it doesn't feel like the gun is sitting on one side of the body.

It's snug. Secure and actually feels more comfortable than the Remora I've been using.

The belly band also allows for me to put a lumbar appliance in it from a back support band I occasionally wear when I've strained my back.

I don't use the security snap. so that is a relatively useless accessory.

The magazine wells work well and what I do is, move the strap either fore or aft of the magazine body to provide a little additional friction.

For the discounted price, it's a good buy. Not sure if the normal price is justifiable, but it is definitely comfortable.

I'd call it a good product.

    So... you got one of those "tactical girdles," eh?

    I like the idea, though it is often hot and always humid
    so I worry about sweat and salt build up on the band thus rust.

    It's very breathable, and washable. If that helps.

    Well, I have a 32" waist...so I don't really need it.

    Looks good, especially for the price. I've been using a Sticky for my Shield, and have liked it so far, but want to take a look at belt style holster. Thanks for sharing.

    I wore it this morning on a 5 mile walk. As the photo previously posted shows, I don't wear it across my belly, but rather as a self supporting inside the waistband holster. No pulling down on athletic pants, no need for a belt etc. I occasionally wear it with common clothing, but for the most part, it's easier just slipping the Remora into the waistband. Still, when I want something self-supporting, it can't be beaten. Also, the slimness of the material makes it the most concealable as it adds absolutely no width to the dimensions of the gun. The Remora ads at least 1/4 inch of bulk to the slide.

    I wouldn't buy one for a hundred dollars...but for the price I paid, I'm satisfied.

    Ok so you don't look silly just talking to yourself I'll tell everyone that I bumped this thread up and asked for an update and then I found the other more recent thread where you answered I think it was Terminator, when he asked about one for his wife so I just came back here and deleted my bump but I guess it was just as you sent me a reply... sorry.  I just opened a new thread on the subject for simplicity sake...

    OK, I ordered one, ****. You caught me just right. I'm losing weight and should be upgrading my wardrobe, instead. So I ordered one that will be too small, then added the extension, for six bucks.
