    Wearing OWB

    I have a question regarding OWB and properly threading the belt. The spot I carry has a pants loop directly behind the holster. Should I thread my belt through this loop as well as the slots on the holster or is threading only through the holster just fine? I have an A&G belt so I'm not concerned with sagging. Threading only through the holster seems to pull it tighter and help the holster lay flatter. Hope this makes sense.

    It doesn't sound like it would make a difference, either way. I like to use ALL my loops, and personally, I would probably thread through the first slot, then the pants loop, then through the second slot...but that's just me.

    I think another factor is how long the holster is, ie. from slot to slot along your belt. This depends on how much cant the holster has. Some are longer than others, that's just physics. A double mag pouch, for example, could easily and feasibly be worn that way.

    The holster I believe has 15 degree cant...Galco Concealable. The slots are maybe 5-6" apart. If it makes any difference, I have a 32" waist, so the belt is very stiff once it is on.

    i agree with RETSUPT, I do the same thing and find that it keeps the holster within certain areas of the belt. Although I find it works best to do this with a pancake style holster with loops that are pretty spaced out. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the replies. I guess I will try without using the pants loop and practice drawing and moving and see how it feels. Then I'll use the loop and test that too and see which I like better. I can't imagine the holster is going to move much not using the loop.

    I agree with using the belt loop. I must admit though I have ripped quite a few pairs of jeans.
