Caliber is often the biggest focus of a buyer’s attention and Eric says that there is a lot of debate around the topic. He notes that often times people feel pressured into purchasing and carrying a handgun with a large caliber that intimidates them. If you don’t feel confident and are intimidated by the handgun you carry, Eric notes that there is a good chance you won’t be able to shoot it accurately. As a result, he says he would rather see someone carry a .22 that they feel comfortable with and can shoot accurately, than to carry something they are completely overwhelmed by. The bite or power of the caliber you carry means nothing if you can’t hit your intended target. Eric says that the only rounds that count are the rounds that hit, so when selecting a handgun, buyers should really take a practical approach and select the most realistic choice for their personal comfort and skill level. In addition, buyers have to think about the price tag. The initial purchase of a handgun will set your wallet back a little bit, but buyers also have to remember that they will be buying ammunition to train with so it’s important to be practical about the handgun you choose from a financial angle.
Having a good holster to hold your handgun is crucial, as well, and may ultimately determine the frequency of which you carry. If your handgun is large or heavy and you don’t have a holster to accommodate it, you’ll be far less likely to carry regularly. Eric says that the advantage of a Sticky Holster is that it is a no clip system. On holsters with a clip, the weight of your firearm pulls solely on one point of attachment making it necessary to have a sturdy belt. With Sticky Holsters, there is no clip, so the weight isn’t centered on one point, but instead it is distributed throughout the waistband. That translates to no drooping waistbands, plus it offsets the size of large handguns and makes them feel smaller because the weight is more evenly distributed.
So, if it doesn’t use a clip, then how does it work? Good question! Sticky Holsters are made out of a cool synthetic rubber material. This material grips and sticks to your clothing and/or skin. It’s soft, non-abrasive and there are no hard points on the holsters, so it is comfortable to wear. This special material and the design of Sticky Holsters also make them incredibly versatile. With one holster you can carry IWB, appendix, in your pocket, on your ankle, in your vehicle, and more. The Sticky Holster was designed to be used on its own or in conjunction with one of their modular systems like the AnkleBiter or Travel Mount. Eric says that they wanted to be able to create a product that made it easier, more comfortable and more convenient to carry a gun and they nailed it! Sticky Holsters makes a holster for virtually every make and model out there so click here to look at the holster(s) that would fit your gun(s). Most Sticky Holsters will cost less than $30 making them incredibly affordable. Plus, it’s important to note that they are an American owned and operated company and all of their products are made right here in the U.S.A.
Finally, Eric takes a moment to talk about their Thin Blue Line holsters. They donate the majority of the proceeds of the special edition holsters to C.O.P.S (Concerns of Police Survivors) – a charity that takes care of family members of fallen officers across the country. As a company Eric says they like to give back to those that protect and serve citizens, and this is a great way to do so.
