Sticky Holsters Optics Ready

Sticky Holsters’ slightly tacky namesake exterior texturing allows its line of IWB holsters to be comfortably carried along the user’s beltline without the need for clips or loops, while also keeping the holster held in place when the firearm is drawn.

And, in response to one of the hottest trends in the handgun world, the company now offers versions of these holsters with a trimmed down front edge that accommodates a slide-mounted micro red-dot.

Inherently ambidextrous in design, the low-profile Optics Ready holsters can be positioned at any point along the wearer’s waistline, to facilitate either strong-side or cross-draw techniques, and—depending on the size of the gun in question—their compactness also makes them a great choice for pocket carry, where the non-slip exterior is also an asset.

MSRP is $31. For more information, visit
