Just thought I would pass this on.
I discovered Remora holsters via utube.
These are constructed of a textured leather like material which is tacky and grips skin and cloth. Holsters are sized for specific weapons.
Options include a soft leather lining,which I strongly recommend as the unlined versions are likely to cause holster wear. Besides,the leather lining facilitates a smooth grip and draw. Another option is the sweat shield which is a small extension on the skin side to prevent
Sweat from reaching the weapon. This helps on the draw because it positions you thumb just right. They just introduced a velvet like liner--no comment because I have not seen it. Being a traditionalist I like the idea of a leather liner.
The Remora does not have any belt hardware. The tacky material keeps it firmly in place for IWB on the hip,Appendix (my favorite),
And pocket for smaller guns.
I have carried in all thee positions and tried to dislodge the weapon by actively moving around (stooping,bending over,running,sitting, etc.)
The holster and gun remained in place. Never popped out.
The beauty of this holster is you canchange your carry without fussing with a belt. Move from hip to appendix or cross draw or pocket in just a second. See my closet for two expensive belts ruined by plastic/metal clips.
All up with options and shipping you are at about $40.
They are running a special now-25% off and a free magazine pouch. I have several mag pooches. Just right.

Take a look. My favorite.

Be careful with a small weapon and Appendix carry in a Remora. Unless it was just applicable to me, I found that a small gun in a Remora in front like that tended to "fold" over my belt and come loose. I guess because there wasn't much length to the rig and when bending over, it would slip out. I LOVE my Remoras and find that my Glock G-26 or a 357 revolver tend to work a lot better. Longer holster tends to keep more below the beltline and hence stays in place better. The smaller rig became one slippery little sucker!

You are right about small guns. I use my Remoras for pocket holsters with sw bodyguard and glock 42. They are nice and sticky and work very well. I should have stated I carry remora iWB on hip or appendix with my bt380, bt380cc, bt22, sw shield, and a 38 snub by sw.
These are heavier and bigger and tend to stay low and stay in place for me inside the belt.
Thanks
