    Gangster pants and IWB carry

    I'm one of the furthest things from being a gangster, but I can't help but feel that way when I IWB carry.

    Need some help here.

    Carry an HK45c in a AKJ Concealco IWB holster with Wilderness instructor belt. Sits at about 4 o'clock. When I first put on the rig, all is fine. As the day progresses, the gun, belt, and pants start sagging where the gun is sitting. I constantly have to pull up my pants around my gun. Soon enough, my boxers start bunching up in that area. Now all hell is breaking loose and I have to find a restroom to readjust.

    Now let me say I am cursed with the no-ass ass. Flat as a board. Is this the main problem? The belt isn't coming loose. Can't tighten it anymore or it would be VERY uncomfortable. For the same reason, I can't go lower in pant size. The gun is fairly heavy which isn't helping matters, but I'm sure many of you out there carry more sizable weapons.

    Any suggestions or to I just resign myself to being a Crip or Blood?

    I've never tried a wilderness instructor belt but I'm bet a good quality leather belt would fix your problem.

    I'm also cursed with the no-ass and I carry IWB with a beltman belt with no problems.

    Well I don't have the no ass-ass problem..lol, but for me the Smart Carry works wonderfully. Can't say enough good about the product and the owner Charlie Parrot. I carry (2) G30SF's in my SC all day/every day. I wear pleated dress slacks or pleated Dockers (1 size larger than I need) and the guns are just not noticable. Love that method of carry. You can either wear your shirt out or tucked in. Deep concealment, and I can draw and fire my first COM shot in under 2 seconds. Take a look at the web site and see if it might be the solution for you. Good luck and always, stay safe.

    You may have to llok into a different method of carry. Iwb is not for everyone. Different things work for different people. You could try swapping your IWB to a different location though. Try it crossdraw anywhere from 10:00-11:30. I suffer the no ass syndrome and carry crossdraw at about 11:00 and it works great for me.

    Brother Bonehead is in a toasty part of the country, if memory serves... cover garments can be difficult in the heat. Not sure what he does for a living, but crossdraw might be tough to pull off...

    You might need to get a reinforced gunbelt like the Beltman... I just checked Comp-Tac and they have reinforced belts on sale for 50 bucks...

    I might as well say you should look into a SmartCarry, too...

    Gangster pants are when the waist of your pants sags lower then its supposed to be. Kinda like plumbers crack. It pretty much means the waist of your pants is below your butt.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Honing the knives, Cleaning the longguns, Stocking up ammo.

    I had the gangsta look way back. You see I was also born with no a**. When I was a wee lad my Mom called me Droopy Drawers. Unfortunately as I got older my pants kept heading further south.

    Now I'm forced to use suspenders. I use Perry Suspenders.Welcome to the Perry Suspenders eStore They use a plastic clip that hooks onto and under your belt. It cannot come undone. They have lots of styles and are reasonably priced. Sometimes Walmart has them sold under the Dickies brand.

    I also am a SmartCarry user and highly recommend their product. Although I still need the suspenders!

    If the Wilderness Tactical isn't working you may have to look at something else I tried every leather belt on the market and couldn't find anything more secure then my WT just my my opinion a different belt may work better for you. Good Luck
