    Ordered a Clinger Holster for my 380CC......

    I was looking for an IWB holster for my CC, and remembered seeing a thread here on Clinger Holsters- https://clingerholsters.com/product/...inger-holster/ . I ordered one and man....I like this thing. It comes with 3 different size spacers to adjust retention. Once I got that part figured out- it works great. I never though I would like the plastic stuff- but this has changed my mind. This holster is the Stingray model and is very similar to the "Godddess" holster that John R posted pics of recently.
    I have tried to post pics of this- but for some reason I'm doing something wrong.....I'll get it eventually.
    This holster is $40 + shipping......its a good easy wear for the CC.

    Edit: The way this thing is made- it holds the pistol grip close to your body- it doesn't poke out like other hostlers allow.
    I can easily cover the CC with a tee shirt.

    Interesting. I'm a leather guy. But I may consider something like this. I'm thinking of getting a Sig P938 and would do appendix. This looks like a good small minimal holster for that

    I think I got the pics......


    Edit: I don't know what I'm doing wrong.....but the bottom pic is 2 x the size of the others?
    I didn't change anything on my phone- I snapped them all 1-2-3. Oh well there they are.

    Brojohn: How does it feel next to your skin? Or, do you wear an undershirt between the holster and your skin? I almost always wear some kind of undershirt btwn me and my holsters. But sometimes it is too hot for that in Alabama and Arkansas too.

    It has a sweat shield- no problem next to my skin...although I might wear a tee shirt under it.


    BUT UNFORTUNATELY.......today I realized that when I draw my gun- the mag releases!!! The molded indent for the mag release must not be aggressive enough.
    It drops the mag with both my CC's. That ain't gonna work. I have sent an email to Clinger......i'm sure they'll want it back. poo-poo

    Edit: The plastic (kydex) in this holster is very stiff and thick.... like about 90/1000.

    I would like to test drive one some time. I appreciate their commitment to absolute concealment.

    I carry a BT .380 CC in a UBG holster.

    Look at getting a Hidden Hybrid Holster. I have several and love them.
    They have a suede back that keeps it in place and real comfy

    I got an email from Clinger this morning.....they are sending another holster.
    Well....they advertise "bumper to bumper" lifetime warranty.

    We will see.

    Maybe you can reshape the kydex around the mag release with a little heat.

    Maybe so.... I"ll wait til the new one comes.....if they want the old one back.....I'll ship it to them.
    If not- then I'll give that a try.
    Its pretty thick...and very stiff.

    Update on Clinger Holster for the T380 CC:

    Clinger sent me a new holster- the old one would drop the mag when you grab the gun grip.

    Unfortunately the new one does it too. The indent in the mold for the mag release is not quiet in the right place. The kydex material
    is resting right on top of the mag release. The slightest movement will eject the magazine.
    Oh well...I hope they can fix this.....this holster fits well, and it wears and conceals well.

    To be continued:

    Heat of a hair dryer usually allows you to remold kydex. Might try that.

    Re-update:

    Just got an email from Clinger, they refunded my credit card.
    I guess I'll look elsewhere for a small IWB holster?

    Any suggestions for the CC?

    As I suggested before Hidden Hybrid Holsters
    I have 4 of them. Very comfortable and I don't have to keep pulling my pants up.
