Frequently Asked Questions


                                           1.  Question: Will using the FAST Holster scratch my gun?

                                             Answer: No, the FAST Holster was designed using a soft plastic to protect your firearms.


                                           2.  Question: Will the FAST Holster hold my stainless steel pistol?  Stainless steel is

                                                    non-magnetic right?

                                             Answer: The FAST Holster will hold almost all stainless pistols.   The stainless steel used

                                                    in most pistols is magnetic.


                                           3.  Question:  Is there any other way to mount / install the FAST Holster besides the screws and

                                                    molys provided with the holster?

                                             Answer:  There are many ways to install the FAST Holster without using screws.  If the surface

                                                        you are installing the FAST Holster is made of a thin wall, aluminum rivets will work well. 

                                                        On non-porous surfaces, VHB (very high bond) double sided adhesive tape will hold the

                                                        FAST Holster and firearm.  For permanent installations on porous surfaces Gorilla

                                                        Glue TM will securely hold the FAST Holster.


                                           4.  Question:  How long does the magnet last?

                                             Answer:  The FAST Holster uses permanent, rare earth magnets.


                                           5.  Question:  What are the magnets coated with to prevent them from scratching my pistol?

                                             Answer:  The magnets are covered via over molding with a soft poly urethane plastic.


                                           6.  Question:  Where can I mount a FAST Holster?

                                             Answer:  Almost anywhere!  Our thought for home defense is anywhere that is unique to you

                                                        that you can get to  when you need your gun.  The FAST Holsters also work well inside

                                                         your gun safe to hold and organize your firearms.


                                           7.  Question:  How do I mount the FAST Holster?

                                                Answer:  The FAST Holster is supplied with mounting hardware and instructions.


                                           8.  Question: How about mounting a FAST Holster in a car, truck or SUV?

                                             Answer:  We do not recommend the FAST Holster for use in cars or trucks due to the shocks

                                                        and vibrations that are inherent  in driving.  We are working on two new models

                                                        designed for auto use.  Please watch for updates on the website.


                                           9.  Question: Will the FAST Holster hold a shotgun?

                                             Answer:  Yes, most long guns require two FAST Holsters due to the added weight and leverage.


                                           10.  Question:  Can I use FAST Holsters in my gun safe?

                                             Answer:  The FAST Holsters work great in a safe mounted on the door or mounted to the

                                                        underside of a shelf.   The FAST Holsters allow you to organize and maximize the

                                                        available space in your safe.  


                                           11.  Question:  Does the magnet affect my gun?

                                             Answer:  Storing your gun on the FAST Holster does transfer some magnetism to the slide

                                                          of a semi-auto pistol or to the  barrel of a revolver.  This is normal when steel is placed

                                                          against a magnet.  The amount of transfer  is minor and  dissipates quickly or immediately

                                                          when the gun is fired.


                                           12.  Question:  Will the FAST Holster work on polymer frame guns?

                                             Answer:  Yes, the FAST Holster securely holds polymer framed guns by their steel slides.  The FAST 

                                                        Holster will securely hold most handguns on the market today.   Exceptions are extremely large,

                                                        long barreled revolvers; titanium revolvers; and handguns with very large sights.  If you have

                                                        any questions regarding a specific application please email us and we will test the model in question.


                                           13.  Question:  How well doe the FAST Holster hold revolvers?

                                             Answer:  We recommend using the FAST Holster to hang the revolver from the top strap.  For example:

                                                        from the  bottom of a shelf or under a desk.  The cylinder gets in the way in any other orientation.
