concealed carry

rberglofrberglof Senior MemberPosts: 2,942 Senior Member
I have been trying to find a way to carry concealed without relaying on a belt to hold holster. I can't wear a belt that is stout enough for holster due to long ago injury to my back.
I decided to try the belly band type, bought it a few months ago and now am able to conceal carry IWB in relative comfort. Can feel the firearm but still comfortable and no back pain.
Does anyone else use this type of holster and if so what brand are you using?
I am using the Pro Tech 6" and was wondering if 4" might be better. The six inch has a tendency to roll when sitting down, it's not uncomfortable but noticeable.

    I’ve tried a belly band a few times.  Bought one on Amazon, not expensive and couldn’t tell you the brand.  But it does work for AIWB carry if you are wearing gym shorts or sweatpants, and it’s relative comfortable except for summer when it’s too hot.

    I have found that a good sturdy set of suspenders (Dickies) solved all  back related and pants drooping problems associated carrying my 1911 in an OWB holster...the only thing the belt does is hold the holster

    Too damn hot here for one of those.

    Never much liked suspenders so was hoping for another solution and this seems to be it.
    Being in North Dakota heat isn't a big problem and I have been wearing this one IWB with jeans.
    GunNut did you order the 4" or 6"?

    I bought a similar type but it was too big. Have you tried a Remora holster? It’s covered in some sort of “sticky” material. It doesn’t require a belt clip. Stays in place, doesn’t move around. Works fine with my LC9.

    RugerFan I have not tried one like that, will take a look it them. Thanks

    Remora is one of my old favorites.  Started using them when they first came out years ago.  Have two of them (with and without sweat shield) for my full sized 1911s and they WORK,

    5.11 or Duluth Fire Hose Flex pants and shorts with the identical pocket arrangement plus a LW J-frame or .380 in a DeSantis Super Fly in the front pocket ain't a bad approach

    Sorry just saw this question.  6” works well.

    Thank you GN. I have only tried the Remora one time so far and it seemed to be OK. Not getting out very much right now but but will continue using when we are out of quarantine.
