    I ordered a holster for my G36 Saturday evening and got it today. I've been wearing it for several hours and so far it feels great. I've driven with it on and sat through a movie. I have to say it is the most comfortable holster that I've worn.

    How is re-holstering the gun while you are wearing the holster?

    Just the name of the company. I guess it gets lumped into the same broad category as things such as tactical pens, tactical underwear, tactical condoms, tactical jelly beans, tactical shoe laces, tactical wallets, tactical finger nail files.....

    An over used word for sure!

    I wouldn't diss the holster or the company based on what they decided to call it. You can't blame them for jumping on the "tactical" bandwagon

    I have one that I use to carry my TCP. The absolute best part of the holster is that I can wear it against the skin comfortably. Shorts, a t-shirt, and no belt and the thing stays up. I talked to the guys at the gun show and the N82 is "Nate Squared" after the two guys with the same name who started the company and one of them basically said why can't it be tactical like everything else.

    Reholstering gets easier after it sets to the gun and your body but is still not easy as kydex or reinforced leather. The compromise is you give up re holstering easily for what is easily the most comfortable IWB holster I have used.

    No problem reholstering for me at all. I really like this holster. It is the most comfortable IWB I have ever used.

    Do you happen to have a link for these tactical jelly beans?:whistling:

    And no, I don't blame them for jumping on the tactical bandwagon. The word tactical sells stuff, and thats why they're in business.

    I have a N82 holster also but I rarely use it. I love the comfort, but it rides too high for my taste. It prints more than my other holsters that ride deeper. I think it's a great concept/design, and they are a great company to deal with. I just wish the clip was attached higher on the holster so the gun would ride deeper in my waistband.

    All these years later I still LOVE my N8 holster. Not only is it the MOST comfortable holster I own, the thing I like most is no matter how much I sweat, the weapon stays dry. I live in FL and sweat like an animal. No problem for this product. If you don't try one you are missing out. I have one for all my carry guns. Well not for my J frame. The wife confiscated mine. I need to order another one for my 442. Buy one & you'll be a believer.

    I have a couple of the N82 Professional holsters. They are good quality and are comfortable. I have no complaints.

    I have the N82 Pro Tactical for my G42 and it re-holsters quite easily due to the hard plastic around the trigger guard. I also have an Original Tuckable for my G19 - I've figured out how to re-holster without taking the holster off - just loosen my belt and give the gun a little clockwise twist and it goes right in - this usually takes place when I use the bathroom. Both are extremely comfortable against a shirt or my skin.

    The new Glocks are surely popular. Lots of folks carrying G42s and G43s.
