    Stealth Defense Holster - One guys evaluation

    I received the holster today...June 8th. First impressions...a bit of leather, plastic belt hook and 1.5" elastic band with a bit of Velcro. About what I expected...$59 might be a bit expensive for this combination of materials.

    I tried my Kahr CW9 which worked into the holster well but still protruded because of my belly. I also tried my Ruger LCR but the handle of the gun stuck above the elastic band and really presented itself under clothes.

    You can see that the gun sticks out as my big gut pushes it out. Granted I am wearing a semi tight shirt but I really hate a super baggy shirt (kind of says look at me...I must be hidding something). The Kahr was bad...the Ruger was really bad. I moved the holster over to about 3 - 3:30 which helped but I have a real problem reaching around that far and grabbing the gun.

    My final review is that this is about what I expected. If you are fit and trim you could most likely get away with this holster working for you. Us chubby guys...you know who you are?!...will find it difficult to use this type of holster. I have more photos if anyone is interested. I think I will stick with my Cross Breed ST & MT.

    By the way...anyone wanting to buy this setup from me can for $20 plus $5 shipping. PayPal payment required. Contact me PM to discuss. First come...first gets!
    Best Regards from Minnesota,

    Rick

    Did you try under the armpit or at the waist? Those are the places my belly band works best. And I'm a big guy too. The thing about the belly band is if I put the weapon under my armpit, the seam of the band shows right up and down my sternum unless I'm wearing a button down shirt.

    Hey Rickmn50,

    Did you ever find the perfect holster? I have a Stealth Carry CCW system (kinda like the smart carry) on the way and I am hoping it works out for this chubby guy..I am also either going to order the Minatour MTAC or the CBST. Have decided on that one just yet....

    That thing looks more like a $20 holster to me. I don't like the way it looks.

    Thanks for the review.
