Introducing the Brave Response Appendix Holster. This is our answer to everything that gets under our skin about concealed Carry these days. If you have the obligatory box of holsters and nothing really satisfies, this is for you.

  • It doesn’t have to be hooked or clipped to your belt, boot, or anything. The built-in waistband goes around your torso like a belt
  • As a waist band holster it can be as shallow or as deep of concealment as you want or as your pants allow
  • Its a one size fits all holster meaning that you only need to buy one and it will work for ALL your semi-automatic handguns
  • It holds 1 spare magazines along with the gun!!! (additional capacity available with our mag pouches)
  • It takes less time to put on and it conceals better without printing than any holster on the market
  • It fits any waist from 18 to 48 inches (we do offer a waist extension that you can check out by clicking here)
  • The Brave Response Holster is made from heavy duty “SharkSkin” breathable canvas and is lined with cotton poly next to the skin. Going Commando? This will still be comfortable and breathable
  • The entire holster is machine washable
  • The holster has been optimized for comfortable appendix carry
  • The magazine pouches feature an elastic that secures your magazine/flashlight tight so it doesn't just sit loosely
  • Fully tuckable. Tuck in your shirt without worrying about printing or showing any belt clips or the like. Completely and 100% concealable underneath a fully tucked in shirt.

It Fits ALL Semi-Automatic handguns and most smaller revolvers;

That include ALL Semi-Automatic handguns from Glock, Smith and Wesson, Springfield, Sig Sauer, Browning, Desert Eagle, Kahr, Beretta, Ruger, Walther, FN-Herstal, Colt, Kimber, Heckler and Koch (H&K), C-Z, Steyr, Taurus, and 1911 style handguns. If you don't see your gun manufacturer listed here, but it is a semi-automatic it WILL FIT.

Handgun Accessories;

  • The holster does NOT accommodate any firearms with trigger guard or tac rail mounted lights or lasers.


ALL YOUR GUNSThe Brave Response patent pending pocket design has been carefully developed and tested to be able to accommodate all semi automatic handguns. So whether you are a Sig or a Glock or a Springfield or a Smith and Wesson, or any brand of 1911 or any of the other brands of handgun out there… (seriously, we took it to cabelas, and Scheels and we made sure we put EVERY SINGLE semi auto in it before we did anything else) Your handgun will fit perfectly in this holster. Our founders carry the Glock 27 double stack, Glock 42 single stack, Kimber 1911, Walther P99, FNX Tactical 45, SIG P226 Blackwater Edition, and H&K P30 all interchangeably in the same holster. We have found many Revolvers to be able to fit as well, (however, we have found that the large frame revolvers like the K frames and the Pythons do not fit) we will be developing a more extensive list of revolvers that do and don’t fit here in the coming months.
ALL YOUR UNIFORMSThe Brave Response Appendix Holster is self contained and you will find it is comfortably worn with gym shorts, jeans, slacks, a kilt, whatever…. The founder wears just his holster and skivvies in his waders fly fishing in the river. It is truly here to cater to your specific brand of crazy as it does his.
ALL THE TIMENO KYDEX, your body flexes and bends and sweats and moves. Kydex does not. Leather Does not. CCW holsters are supposed to be comfortable. How is this even possible with Kydex and leather? The answer is, it’s not… Kydex and leather are for OWB holsters. The Brave Response Appendix Holster is designed to fit close to the body and leave as little an impression as possible. We built this holster to provide a comfort barrier between you and the gun, while making sure not to add bulk. Our beta testers have been carrying full size handguns and extra mags with no printing and maximal comfort so it can be worn while out and about or in and relaxing. We really think you will be surprised at how it feels as it is our goal to encourage law abiding citizens to carry more often as we never know when the wolf will be at the door.
TOUGHNESSTough but tender, The Brave Response Appendix Holster has been designed using the highest quality “Sharkskin” Canvas at its core for longevity, breathability, comfort, and sturdiness. We use the highest quality “No Snag” Industrial Velcro that ensures you are not ruining your clothes but that the holster is securely held around your waist. The elastic waistband has been chosen to further the lightweight feel of the holster but with the strength to last you.
VERSATILITYThe Brave Response Appendix Holster ships with an elastic waistband capable of fitting comfortably and securely on anyone with a 18″ – 48″ waist. This can be tucked if the holster is to be regularly worn by more than one person or the extra belt material can be removed and the edge of the belt singed with a lighter or match. The Brave Response Appendix Holster has a built in spare magazine pouch in addition to the one in the gun itself. You can also use the mag pocket for most small flashlights and pocket knives Because the Brave Response Appendix Holster can carry such a wide variety of handguns, you can get rid of the box of holsters and have one holster that is right for you and all your handguns.
BREATHABLENO LEATHER, Leather does not breathe now, it didn’t breathe when it was skin. Skin is designed for keeping liquids and other stuff inside the body. Our holster is designed to breathe. That way you can breathe, your gun can breathe, everyone can breathe, and that makes life comfortable. No more taking off your sopping wet leather and metal and hard plastic holster. You’ll find this holster keeps you much cooler as a result of less weight, less bulk and the most durable breatheable fabrics on the planet.
FLUIDITY OF TRAININGWe are a defensive training company first and foremost. Our students include private citizens, Military, law enforcement, and private armed security forces. This holster was built to enable you to protect your life. In a defensive situation you will lose the ability to perform fine motor skills so building a holster that is safe and comfortable for the 99.9999% of the time that you carry and effective and ready for that 1 in 300,000 chance of being a victim of violent crime. The patent pending pocket on the holster positions your firearm in a forward cant position to replicate your outside the waistband training holster that you wear to the range. This will aid you in a defensive situation as most of our students have never drawn from concealed until they are on the range with us. The Brave Response Appendix Holster will imitate the feel of your OWB training holster and enable you to have a faster response to an imminent threat. The forward cant also facilitates a clean and smooth draw with no hang ups or snags. Retention is removable at your discretion. The retention has been designed to instantly break away as you slide into shooters grip before the draw. The retention is hidden behind the gun in the perfect place for you to disengage it, but will maximize your ability to retain the weapon on your hip.

    Mine holster was delivered to my office Friday and I put it on as soon as I got to work. It’s a perfect fit for my Springfield Range Officer Champion. I barely knew it was there. So glad I ordered one quickly and got the mag wallet too.

    Never tried appendix carry before so I figured I’d give it a try seeing as how hyped up these holsters are in the podcast. First let me say I learned real quick that appendix carry is not for me. No matter which gun I tried, i just didn’t like it. Even the holster by itself was uncomfortable. So that’s about 90% of the reason I returned it. Second, and This is the reason I won’t be buying the normal brave response holster, is it’s pretty cheaply made. It’s a pretty basic holster with a pretty basic idea. It didn’t fit my guns as well as I’d like (although most universal holsters don’t), and I question the longevity of the elastic over time. If this were a $20 holster I wouldn’t have been as surprised when I opened the box, but for $70 I expect a little more from my holster. For the price you pay you can get a gun specific kydex holster you’ll be a lot happier with.

    My findings with this holster.

    1.The holster snags on my M&P 2.0 compact when I draw the firearm from holster and pulls holster up and mostly out of the pants. Doesn’t stop the draw, but is very annoying.
    2. Hook part of velcro comes all the way to the edge of the waistband and causes pain were it rubs on skin. If the waistband was 1/8 inch wider on each side of the velcro hook material this would not be a problem.
    3. I cannot find any way in which to wear this holster comfortably. My body type is likely the cause of this.
    4. I do not trust this holster to properly secure the firearm. A belt or tight pants over the holster is required for any retention.

    Overall I think this holster is everything you’ve likely been warned not to buy. I would rank this holster only slightly better than the typical nylon holster. The one advantage this holster has over a nylon holster is you wear it concealed, so it won’t mark you as a amature like the typical nylon OWB holster does.

    I like the narrow elastic stretch belt. I like the small holstering area. I am a new owner and currently position the holster on my side (wearing winter clothes). I’m holstering a taurus g2. It tends to snag at the front sight area during a slow draw but exits pretty smoothly during a fast draw. There is little noise during a fast draw. The g2 fits snuggly.
    Another reviewer mentiioned additional material around the belt edge. I mentioned an additional velcro length.
    I dont think there is another holster comparable. I am keeping mine.

    I love this holster. I have a Shield 9mm with a Laser Max laser and it wouldn’t fit in the holster. I took it to a tailor in town and had it modified. Perfect fit. I bought another one for my shield 45. I wear it every day. I have another band style holster and the breathable material on the Brave Response is the absolute best. Never sweaty. I wear it all day and sometimes forget it’s even on.

    I think it is has become a very handy holster for me in many of my situations. I do however like my other Brave Response holster a little better for over all time carrying purposes. I will say this about both of my holsters from Brave Response, I would not trust better quality and trust to a company. Over all iam very please and happy with both holsters and they definitely live up to their backing in all fields of comfort, reliability, fit for all of my weapons and concealment, don’t know what else to say but that. Oh except thanks guys for some great equipment, keep making great things. David W Mitchell 02-25-18

    I am a small guy, 5’6″, 160 lbs. I have to wear tucked every day at the office. Every IWB holster I tried poked out of my pants. Belly bands work, but the 3 I tried all end up sweaty and stinky at the end of the day. The Brave Response appendix holster is perfect for me. It’s not hot and doesn’t print. I wore it to the range, drew and started firing. No problem As a lefty, I typically wear it at 10:30 or 11. However it is perfect at 9 o’clock on my hip. I know it’s there, but it doesn’t stop me from working or my toddler from riding my back around the house. No worries. So glad I found this holster. I carry a Sig p938 every day in my Brave Response appendix holster. My only regret is that I didn’t get an extra right handed one for long car trips.

    I liked this a lot. I have the original brave response holster which found very comfortable. I was using it as appendix carry holster even though it was canted. This new holster was what I wanted. I have a number of different gun types and sizes and this holster accommodates them all.

    The holster is ideal for sweat pants and or gym shorts. No belt needed. Also has a place for extra mag. Very happy.
