I have owned custom made leather holsters, kydex/leather holsters and a lot others.
But the only holster I use now are Remora holsters.

I have a Remora Tuckable for my Bersa Thunder and one for my Kel Tec P-32 also.

I also have a Remora pocket holster for my P-32.

If you have not looked at the Remora website lately, you should do so. They have added some excellent holsters. :thankyou:

I bought a Remora and after a few attempts with it, scrapped it totally. Then I showed it to my son after he got his CCW permit. He fell in love with it, and immediately went out and bought himself one for his pistol (different size than mine, otherwise he could have just taken my Remora). For him, it's the greatest out there. Many of his friends have seen his, and went on to order their own. At the same time I bought my Remora, I got one for the wife. She couldn't stand it either.

So I guess it's a love or hate item. It could just be that I've never liked IWB carry. I have a couple of those holsters, but don't like any of them. I find IWB to be uncomfortable, and not significantly more concealable than a well designed OWB holster. Or it could be that I'm just a sucker for leather (I don't like Kydex holsters either). But there are many people who love Remoras. So there is definitely something to them. Just not for me.

Count me as one of the Remora lovers. I keep trying out tons of other holsters of different makes and materials, and for the past few months, I have actually found a few that I like enough to stick with long-term. But still, I find myself unable to deny the ease and comfort of carry that Remora offers. Just poke it into the holster, poke the holster in your waistband, and go. No fiddling with or fighting against clips, no buckles, no sliding it back and forth on your belt. Just grab n' go. The only reasons I started to stray away from them are: 1. When you get sweaty, that tacky, rubbery surface can really irritate your skin, 2. They're kinda "puffy" and take up more room inside your waistband than, say, a good Kydex or leather holster, and 3. They do sometimes have a tendency to shift upwards in your waistband if you sit down in your car, which necessitates a little bit of adjustment when you get back out. Otherwise, they're cheap, they're durable, they take all the pokey corners and edges out of your gun, they protect your gun wonderfully without wearing off the finish, they're quick to put on or take off, they're infinitely adjustable for depth/angle, they make for an easy draw ... just all kinds of awesome.

That said ... these days, most of my carry guns are riding in one of the following holsters:
1. Bladetech Klipt (I prefer the non-ambidextrous ones because they sit lower, the ambi version for my XDS 4.0" required me to drill a hole to move the belt clip higher);
2. 5.11 AIWB (I only have one, but it fits my G19 and G26 wonderfully);
3. Barsony Leather IWB (for my 2.5" S&W 686+ and SP101);
4. old no-name OWB leather slide holster I modified to add a "sweat shield" - THE most comfy holster EVARRRRR, and fits darn near every semi-auto I own, but doesn't always conceal too well;
5. Rainier Arms Stealth Operator Full-Size Multi-Fit OWB (sheesh, what a name) - surprisingly cheap and fits MOST of my semi-autos and conceals well AND actually has a sweat shield ... but it just isn't quite as comfortable because, duh, hard plastic isn't as nice against your skin as leather. :p
