Got curious with the multitude of reviews on YouTube for this new no-clip sticky holster and thought I’d give it a try. The Nemesis holster that I’ve been using with my Ruger LCP is already smoothing out and losing it’s grip. I’ve drew my gun out of my pocket together with the holster many times.
The version I bought is the one that’s supposed to fit a Ruger LCP with a laser. http://www.remoraholsters.net/Remora-Series-2A-Holster-Pocket-IWB-1XSMA3.htm I was a little worried that my huge armalaser block might not fit in this holster but wanted to give it a try anyway. here’s how it’s packaged :
Out of the package, quality is pretty good :
Let’s see if it fits :
ooo tight fit, I have to push it in really hard.
Here it is compared to the Nemesis :
It is a little bulkier than the Nemesis, but perhaps I need to wear it in for a bit. Also, the outer material is made out of some kind of rubberized material and shaped in small circles, compared to the Nemesis which uses a cross-stitch pattern. Here’s a close up view of the surface :
Right now, the fit is really tight, I can’t draw the gun without the holster coming out with it. I’m gonna leave the gun in and let it set or stretch out for a few days to see if it gets better.
Just found a buyer for my Springfield XDm and traded it for a Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry II. I’ve been looking for an Ultra sized 1911 for a while now and just managed to find one.
It’s so small, light (about 25oz empty and 30oz loaded 7+1) and has an integrated Crimson Trace lasergrip.
It fits into my Landshark Leather holster (that was made for a Commander length 1911) perfectly. Time to start carrying this one
Ever since I bought my Glock 19, I’ve upgraded it with a few enhancements, one of them is an extended magazine release. The reason is I find it a little hard to depress the mag release button without having to shift my grip too much. Quickly bought one from MidwayUSA and after a couple of minutes struggling with the small spring tension, I finally got it installed. It worked very well right up to the point I had to carry the Glock in my IWB Crossbreed Supertuck holster.
The extended mag release protrudes out from the frame a little too much for IWB carry and keeps getting engaged while I’m seated or while moving around. This caused my magazine to release prematurely and drop out from the gun fairly frequently. This problem doesn’t exist if you use it with OWB type holsters because you have more clearance between the gun and your body.
Seeing my dilemma, a buddy of mine who works at Zev Technologies (Glockworx) sent a prototype magazine release to me a few weeks ago. I’ve been carrying it in my Crossbreed holster for two weeks now and it works wonderfully. It’s the best of both worlds actually, it sits flush against the frame and yet makes it easier for me to engage the mag release.
It’s cut a little shorter than the stock mag release.
To compensate for not being able to press the mag release as much as a stock one, they moved the spring tension “hole” forward just a hair. This makes it easier for you to drop the magazine. It is in essence, shorter, yet easier to depress than a stock mag release. The feel of it is very similar to the extended one, but without the detriment of accidentally releasing the magazine when carrying it close to your body.

Overall, I’ve very happy with this dual benefit release mechanism. If they had this product available, I would not hesitate to buy it or recommend it to my friends who carry a Glock.
Finally caved into getting one. The venerable Glock. after looking high and low, asking lots of fellow shooters what would be the best, I settled on the Glock 19. Small compact frame in 9mm Luger.
Also bought a cheap Raven Concealment Holster off someone on a Forum that holds the gun tight and close to my body. This is a very popular holster that would take anywhere up to 18 weeks to be delivered. I got lucky!
Avid shooters would know which movie my title quote came from.
This is a great guide for women who have their Concealed Pistol License (CPL) of Concealed Carry Weapon license (CCW). Women have very different body shapes than men and clothing preference, so Falia is doing a great job going through the various different types of holsters and carry options for various clothing styles.
This is by far the HARDEST sight change I’ve ever done. The front sight on the Eclipse Pro II is so hard to remove, it’s even harder than the XDm’s front sight. It took me a hour of banging and hammering with a steel punch with some Liquid Wrench to remove it. Ugh!
I wanted a really good carry sight since this is going to be my other carry gun, and after watching numerous tactical videos / training DVDs, I decided to get a Heinie Kimber LEDGE Straight Eight Sight Set that would allow me to manipulate the slide one handed by hooking the sight on to a belt or holster or anything hard. It also comes with tritium dots that form a figure 8 when you acquire a proper sight picture.
Here’s what it looks like after it’s installed :

Looks like Kimber is going to announce a new family of pistols at Shotshow next month. Found this post from an online forum.
Super Carry – NEW FAMILY for 2010
Super Carry Ultra – MFG # 3200248
Super Carry Pro – MFG # 3200247
Super Carry Custom – MFG # 3200246
The Super Carry family – the three models in this line will all have alloy frames, a recessed slide stop hole like on the Crimson Carry II family, a high cut lower trigger guard like on the newest Gold Combat II models, a melt finish & silver KimPro on the frame with black KimPro on the slide making this a two tone gun, Wood Micarta Grips – Linville color (new color for Kimbers), and a bobbed mainspring housing. The sights will have a cocking shoulder like the SIS line, ambidextrous safety, and new cocking serrations called Super Carry Serrations. These serrations will look similar to those on the Raptor slide but sharper and reversed in direction.
Most notable difference, BOBBED Mainspring housing. That reduces “printing”. I’ve been looking for a bobtailed 3” carry pistol for a long time, only ones were the Bobtailed Dan Wessons, but those are commander frames and pretty heavy because of the stainless frames.
I’m sold! Time to save up!
