Default Uncomfortable carry holsters.

So I have been using a whole slew of different holsters and just can't find one that feels comfortable to wear for any length of time. I've tried Alien Gear, pocket holsters, inside waistband holsters from various companies that are made out of a soft material and supposedly comfortable right out of the box. I've tried different belts from Hanks leather to Mission to rigging belts and others, I just feel like everything ends up giving me a sore thigh or butt cheek. Honestly am I just being a baby and posters just aren't that comfortable because it is what it is, or is there some kind of holster that just works better than another one? I carry a lot it's not like it's my first time carrying, but I found that since I carry more and more frequently I end up with a hotspot on my thigh and hip. Any suggestions or help would be great.

I have a couple of Alien Gear ones, but I always end up using my Sticky. Within minutes of putting it on, I forget my G26 is there.

I am going to try sticky. I like my Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 with my CZ P-01 at 3:30. I forget it's there and doesn't cut into me.

Try the CCW forum, I use Vedder predominantly for mine, I find alien gear way too bulky. Try as many as you can before you buy

It would help to know what you are carrying. Different gun types do better with different holster types.

I use a crossbreed supertuck with a good belt. Seems to work for me, catch myself making sure it's still there sometimes.

You might get better answers to your question if you state body type, what size or pistol that you are carrying, ans what is your prefered carry location. I carried in 5 o'clock position in the past. It was the most comfortable, but you have to be careful with reaching up for things or bending over. It seems to be a more vunerable position during a fight. 3 o'clock position either seemed to dig into my thigh while sitting if pushed forward a bit, or the butt of the grip would print if pushed back a bit. Appendix carry seemed to dig into my thigh if it was a compact such as a Glock 19.

Get a good quality belt. I use the Ares Gear Aegis Enhanced belt. It is high quality and stiff. StealthgearUSA makes a comfortable holster with no break in period. I am planning on buying a Tier1 Axis or Axis Slim in the future. I hear great reviews.

But try this if you carry appendix. Don't put your belt buckle in the middle. Offset it past the first belt loop so that the middle is free and clear. Put your holster at the 12 o'clock position. Adjust your holster's height for the best comfort and grip purchase. It might take 5-7 days before it feels comfortable and you don't even notice any discomfort.

Hope this helps.

A couple of years ago I switched from Alien Gear IWB to a Sneaky Pete, and never looked back. Absolutely love them!
It's never even gotten a second look, even from LEOs. (I got the blue one with the medical symbol on it).
I carry a G29 most days, and a shield 9mm on T-shirt and shorts days.

Have you been to Garden City to see Milt Sparks yet? Bring your gun in unloaded with slide locked back or cylinder wide open and see what's available.

Wife's saddle maker does a beautiful job with holsters. She'll probably need the gun til she's finished, but husband is an -01 FFL. Off Kuna Road around 5-6 miles west of Kuna. Let me know if interested.

What happened to or is happening with the dogs? Prayers that you and family are doing OK. Know how you feel...had to put down a 15 year old barn cat who earned her food via a rodent jihad.

i pretty much gave up holsters, pocket carry almost 100% of the time

safeguards are in place with my jackets to ensure no accidental trigger pulls

i do like that Sneaky Pete type of carry too - might buy one just for the hell of it

Maybe your putting unrealistic expectations on it. It’s never gonna feel like your not carrying. No matter what you carry or how you carry there will be some level of if not discomfort at least realization that something is there.

Some people are use to this feeling, LE(duty belts), military(LBE), Lineman, construction workers, Carpenters, etc. The key just like with these professions is to build up your resistance too it, after day in and day out of carrying stuff on your body you get so use to it it doesn’t effect you anymore.

For IWB comfort, Uncle Mikes soft holster. The only thing they could do to improve it is continue the soft siding up the inside against your body. They also start showing wear fairly quickly.

Once summer kicks in I’ll find out how comfortable it is in the heat.

I am looking for suggestions on a paddle holster that is a bit more solid feeling than Fobus, with more security with a level 2 retention.

Alien gear doesn’t make one for a Glock 21

I use a good belt and have a couple White Hat holsters. Have no problems. Single clip for my P365 and double clip when I go full size.

+another vote for sticky. Well, technically a DeSantis Pocket Tuck. It's almost completely bumped my CrossBreed MiniTuck out of the rotation for my PM9 and it's all I ever use for my S&W 442 revolver.

Check out the DeSantis Mag Packer as well for keeping an extra mag in your weak-hand front pocket.

No sir. I did see I missed a phone call from you that day and have been working all week, so I haven't gotten a chance to call back. Is Milt Sparks here in Garden City then??

I just feel like I'm getting "hot spots" for a lack of better words on my side when I carry for hours on end. I'd like to be able to go fish in jeans and a t-shirt and not set off every fish and game officer that comes across me. OWB is more comfortable, but I'd love to find an IWB that I can wear all day without boring a hole in me.

Dogs we're going to try to keep around another 6 months to a year and we're going to give this thought another go. I'm trying to get my kids ready for the concept in the next 6 months. Then after that they'll better understand.

For what it's worth to those who asked, I carry a full sized Canik TP9SA in an OWB Alien gear, and in an IWB alien gear cloak tuck 3.0. I also Carry a Taurus PT-709 Slim in the same alien gear IWB/OWB combo. I carry a Ruger SR22 in an Alien Gear cloak Tuck 2.0, and in a sticky holster in my right front pocket, or in a jacket pocket. I just got a KelTec PMR30 that I'd like to be able to carry but I think it may be a bit too big in the handle area.

All these responses and no one agreed you are being a baby??

I kid, no offense meant. I've tried a LOT of different holsters as well. Finally I accepted that it's simply not comfortable, but it is comforting knowing it's there. Galco King Tuk, and the Crossbreed seemed to provide the most comfort for me for larger guns, and I use a kydex for my Shield. Like Stormvet said, you just get used to it. Now I don't even think about it and actually feel like I'm missing something if it's not there.

I have several different IWB's and the one I use the most is the https://tuckergunleather.com/cover-up-plus-holster/.

I carry a Dan Wesson Guardian and I forget it is there also. It's tuckable even though I wear a lot of my shirts untucked. Just wish they would make brown belt clips.

I have a remora and a kydex for my Shield that I swap out but I'm probably ordering another Cover up for it.

Edit: I also generally wear a t-shirt under everything which I think adds t my comfort and also makes my regular shirts last longer

Body shape and weight definitely matter. Until I drop at least ten pounds my spare tire makes an IWB uncomfortable and impossible to draw from.

OP-A few comments in my limited experience.

Size of your pants, belt type and gun matter as much as your holster. They all go hand-in-hand. Same with your body type.

First, try a pair of jeans/pants that are at least 1 size bigger than normal. Slip on the IWB. Make sure you put the gun in the holster (it makes a big difference!). See how much space you have or don't have. This will help you gauge how comfortable it will be as you sit, lounge bend etc. Some guns/holsters etc just don't work for me in a chair, but I can lie down and take a nap no problem(???). Doesn't make sense, but it works.

I currently have a OWB kydex holster that I converted to IWB using soft loops. It works great for my 1911. Even though it's heavier than my XD45 4", the XD45 just isn't as comfortable in a Galco King Tuk IWB. Again, doesn't seem to make sense, but that's what is happening for me.

I also use a tucked in t-shirt under the holster, so that makes a difference in comfort.

My suggestion is just to try different types and see what works and what doesn't. You'll probably wind up with a bunch of different holsters in a drawer somewhere used for different purposes. You may try places that have a generous return offer (Amazon) or other places that have a no questions asked return policy. I've returned 2 different IWB holster for my Shield. Neither were comfortable at all.

Since nobody mentioned belts yet.... spend the money and get a high quality sturdy belt. It's makes a huge difference. (Hank Amish for the win there).

There's lots of good info in the CCW forum, surprised this thread hasn't already been moved there.

For me, the most comfortable holster is OWB. My favorite setup is an M&P Shield riding in a Ritchie CQ-QR holster. I wear a looser button up shirt on top of my t-shirt to conceal my rig.

I actually said this in my original post. I have tried Hank's belts and have two of them, I have a mission belt, I have a wolf rigger's belt, and then I have just a couple everyday ordinary belts. I have used another brand with a metal stiffener on the inside of it that I can't remember the brand right now but I tried one of those and just didn't like it. I think I'm going to try to carry outside waistband again and give up on the inside waistband holsters for a while. I just like carrying outside waistband better anyway and think they're a good route to go. Plus in Idaho it's not uncommon to see a guy walking in with a gun on his belt anyway.

I'm going to give Milt Sparks a chance and go visit his shop this coming up weekend if he is around and I'm going to check out the urban carry and one of the Sneaky Pete Holsters also. I have been buying these all and actually own everything I have stated I've tried. I've tried cross breed, I've tried Alien Gear, I've tried Galco, and in general none of them just feel very comfortable at all it's always an awkward position, it's always a strange sensation. Right now I am carrying a Blackhawk that's basically just like a sticky

When I CCW its a Shield 9mm in a Foxx holster. Mine has metal clips.

I can wear it all day and I forget it's there. no pinching, no numb-ness. I'm 6'-0", 260lbs, with an XL tshirt and 38 waist/30 inseam, but I honestly think the blend of leather and Kydex would fit anyone pretty well.

For the money I think they're a very good buy.

Also, as far as body type goes I am a pretty average guy. I am 5 9 and weigh about 183. I could definitely stand to lose a few pounds but I'm not fat by any stretch of the imagination. I feel like six carry for me has been the most comfortable and then maybe five on the rear right hip after that. I've tried appendix carry although I'm not a fan of potential shooting off my junk. I like the concept of the Sneaky Pete Holsters because it's an outside waistband, very comfortable, and in theory it looks very discreet. Urban carry looks like a good concept and very out of the way if nothing else.

Yeah, it really does depend on body type. Just for reference, I'm left handed, so I rock mine at the 7 or 8 o'clock position. Very comfy, with just a nice sturdy Target/Walmart 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 leather belt.

Foxx does make an OWB and you can buy their stuff on Amazon sometimes, too (Just fyi).

I think I'm going to try to carry outside waistband again and give up on the inside waistband holsters for a while. I just like carrying outside waistband better anyway and think they're a good route to go. Plus in Idaho it's not uncommon to see a guy walking in with a gun on his belt anyway.
Doh! I responded while half-asleep.

I grew up old school.

Kramer holsters work for me.
