I have practically no body fat and often times find it difficult to comfortably conceal. Sitting is the worst part. Belly bands come in handy for my type, but I can imagine it being quite uncomfortable for those with more midsection

I got that "dunlop" thing going on... I can see my feet, but what is that other thing they're talking about?

Seriously, I've been carrying a G23 (and now a 19) in a White Dog OWB holster, and just picked up a DeSantis Intruder. Had to reshape it a bit as my G19 is fitted with a CTC Lightguard, but I like the Intruder. I've only been wearing it a few days and it's beginning to break in and become pretty comfortable. My only issue with it is that it seems pretty bulky, but not having tried other hybrid holsters, I can't say whether it's more bulky than other examples of the breed.

I carry in about the 8:30 position (left handed), works pretty well.
I'm retired. That's right, retired. I don't want to hear about the cop who stopped you today or how you didn't think you should get a ticket. That just makes me grumpy!

SofTuk isn't a very good "test case" for a holster. Not too bad with a Airweight J-frame, but for something like a 1911, Glock or other "real" gun it doesn't provide either adequate support or a great deal of security. Compound that with a lousy belt and you have a recipe for failure.

I will confirm that the SofTuk is a pain in the rear to get on and is exhibit 1 in why I like loops not hooks.

The Truth will set you free, but first it will make you damn mad!

It looks that way, but the inside of your pants and the Wilderness Tactical belt act as a trigger guard. The down side is you have to jam your thumb behind the gun because it is right next to you. I started carrying this way back in 1969 with a S&W J frame and a 1911. I never worried about either of those guns, so I don't worry about the Glock either.

Buy a little Kel Tec.... If you are fat enough you can keep it in your belly button instead of using a holster J/K

CW9 in a Galco horsehide pocket holster. Can't see it under Wrangler denim. Spare mag in another pocket and I'm all set.

Picked it up for just over 300.

So what is it?
