    OK..what kind of gun? What kind of holster? What kind of belt?

    How are you carrying? At 3:00, 3:30, 4:00??

    Re: Holster--what kind of cant does it have? (i.e. is it straight up and down? Angled? Folks usually carry with an "FBI cant"...some get custom holsters made with a larger cant to accommodate a longer barrel.

    Gun is BG 380 auto, Walmart belt, holster is a black hawk. I have try carrying in both side in the front. I have tried straight up and down, angled. I'm now trying at 6:00 in the back.

    Don't recommend carrying at your spine....try 4:00 or 5:00...

    What exactly is your complaint? It rubs your hip? Is it IWB or OWB?

    A good belt makes a 100% difference on comfort of carry, walmart belts just don't cut it. (If you're on a budget search for Tractor Supply Co belts on here) I carry a heavier and slightly larger G27 IWB at about 3:30.

    Which Blackhawk holster?

    Buy a Nemesis, or Mika and throw it in your pocket.

    If you buy your carry rig at a box store, chances are it's gonna bug you.

    My .380s usually ride in the pocket, that's why I carry it, for the convenience. If I'm gonna carry OWB, or IWB I usually go .38 or .40.

    IMO, IWB takes some getting used to... With the right choice in firearms and carry rigs it's not that big of a problem, but even then I'm sure it's different for everyone. I bet most of us have a drawer, or bag full of holsters we've acquired over the years for that (perfect) carry combo.

    I bet that S&W BG would be a pleasure to carry as a dedicated pocket pistol.



    Good luck...

    Ok the problem is when I have it in the front it's like the barrel is rubbing the inter hip bone and I have to move it around and I don't like to do that if I'm out in public. I always have to look around and make sure no one is looking to move it around.

    Well I did have a inside the pocket holster I just did not like carrying it in there because I have my wallet in one side and usually my phone in the other.

    This is worn on my Beltman Belt and sometimes w/ Perry suspenders. Very comfortable.

    You are gonna have to make a few small changes if you want to carry.


    Now honestly, you are carrying a very small, very light gun. You don't need a better belt unless your pants are being held up by a shoelace. Get a pocket holster for your gun and a belt holster for your cell phone. Or even just put your wallet in your back pocket. You will adjust to the different feel in a few days. I promise! I moved my wallet from my left side to my right to better conceal my carry. I was 51 at the time I made the change. It took a while but I'm totally comfortable with the change.

    I carry a BG 380 at 8:00 with a crossbreed holster and a Walmart belt and can't even tell it is there. All my EDC holsters are crossbreeds. A little pricey but the most comfortable I have found.
