I ordered a Teddy holster to wear while trail running and mountain biking (wearing a sports bra). The materials are very comfortable and the holster is secure. The problem I ran into is that I carry a revolver and am very small breasted. This combination does not make for what I consider a satisfactory "conceal". It would take a down parka to disguise the silhouette of the revolver. The Flashbang team responded to my concern immediately and thoughtfully. As soon as I find the right handgun for my activities and body type, I'll be ordering again. I'm keeping the holster, it will be great for my purse or glove compartment. I
Its a little tough for my wife to get used to at first, but overall she loves it. Great concept.
When I first saw your products, I was not sure that they would be comfortable. I talked to you at the SHOT Show and was able to try one on. I fell in love. I placed an order for 2 at that time and picked up the instructor packet for my husband. Whenever he teaches a class, out come my holsters when he talks about carry options. I now have 3 of your holsters wear them whenever I am off duty.
It is not what I expected. Yes it is a holster that is concealed pretty well. I was not expecting it to be so uncomfortable. it is plastic against skin that is my issue. I would have thought it would be cover with a soft material at least on the contact area of the holster. I know that you can’t add padding because it would defeat the concealment of the holster but something has to give. I am not happy with it and will probably never wear it again. I have wore it once.
Hey Toni! It sound like maybe you exchange your Original Flashbang for a Teddy. They have soft suede on the outside, and function just like the Original. We offer free returns and exchanges...we even pay for the shipping. There's a returns section at the bottom of our website, or feel free to shoot us an email.
Bought as a gift but looks great and shipped fast
I have one of those bodies that make it so hard to conceal. I tried hip, back, appendix, ankle - all make an obvious awkward bulge, especially with my torso being short. I'm also a huge hourglass shape, so that doesn't help a single thing. The Flashbang has been a BLESSING! Its the only way I can carry truly concealed. You have to practice the draw a bit, but once you get the feel of it, it's the BEST for large curvy bodies. I carry a Sig p365 and a G26 (two very different sizes) and they conceal equally well with this holster. I totally recommend for thicker gals who carry.
Just the best product for concealed carry!
For several years, I've been carrying my concealed firearm in a belly band, barrel down, just under my bra line. While this was fairly comfortable, I was always concerned about the time it would take to draw from that configuration. Enter the Flash Bang Holster. Especially after watching the helpful video about how to customize the fit for me, I feel much more confident now about my ability to respond safely in an emergency. While I recognize that nothing takes the place of dry-fire practice drawing my firearm, I know that the Flash Bang holster will give me a few extra seconds, over my previous holster. Thanks, Flash Bang! Keep up the good work!
Most comfortable holster I’ve ever worn. I’ve worn belly band holsters and found them too hot. IWB holsters were difficult when using the ladies room. Personally, for increased comfort, I even tuck the handle of my Ruger LCP under my right underwire so it doesn’t poke into my belly when sitting. I’ve practiced drawing from this position effectively. So comfortable to wear ALL DAY LONG!
I bought 1 for my wife and she loves it
