    Anyone here buy or try one?
    I bought one earlier this week. It seems to be well made but I don't see the "cling" it is supposed to offer. Now, as a disclaimer, I do not wear my clothes skin tight. I like a little room for my "dad" bod. I have read reviews where folks wear them with shorts or other casual wear and they stay in place. I'm thinking that won't be the case for me.
    I did want something that would work for the summer. I may just have to go back to pocket or belly band carry when I am wearing my summer gear.
    Perhaps I am asking to much from this product.

    I've purchased holsters from a company called Clinger holsters... But I presume you are talking about a type of holster vs a brand...

    You must be talking about the "sticky" holster made to stay in the waistband with just friction and a rubbery/sticky feel?

    I've looked at them but don't trust them. I want something that stays put and has good retention... Neither of which those seem to have (for me)

    No, Clinger is the company. I saw that they made other holsters as well but the one I purchased is a "sticky" type....just not as sticky as I expected.

    You will have to post pictures of the pistol, holster, and dad bod for proper diagnosis. :p

    No way would I trust a holster that relied on "friction fit" to stay in place.
    I prefer a shoulder rig, but a good belt holster is fine as long as you're not shaped like me. (bowling pin with feet)

    It's more like "grand dad bod".....and no thanks.
