    Crossbreed IWB without a belt possible?

    I just bought a Glock 23 gen 4 and I am trying to decide what IWB holster I want. Really like the Crossbreeds but I don't always wear a belt. Is it possible to use a CB without a belt or should I be looking at other options? Thanks for any replies.

    It is possible but not ideal. A good gun belt makes using a holster much easier. I have used it in gym shorts and cinched them up tight and it worked.

    THE HOLSTER STORE | I used this website. Although I wear I belt I don't use the belt for my holster. I find the clip works just find on my pants.

    I don't know about cb but give this place a try.

    I wouldn't recommend it at all. Even with a belt that isn't thick enough or ideal for a holster, you run the risk of drawing your holster out along with your firearm. It was designed to be used with a gun belt. If you're not going to be wearing a belt at times, get a holster that is designed not to be used with a belt. I have a CBST and the belt clips are very stiff and aren't meant to hold the holster using pressure. They hold the holster in place while you draw your weapon by hooking on the bottom of a gun belt when lifted.

    It's possible as long as you don't move much. Not very comfortable though, and you certainly don't want to have to draw and out comes the holster, those clips wrap around a belt for a reason. :)

    I just got used to wearing a belt...it wasn't worth it for me to have to worry about a difficult draw.

    I have a lighter pistol PT22,Llama 32,but use in iwb in drawstring shorts via pocket type holster that wont stick to pocket yet does to shorts ,shirt etc,with a heavier pistol one risks brandishing their peashooter in more ways than one.
    With anything heavier you will be cinching pants up all the time,without a belt.

    When using an IWB holster, the belt is part of the "retention" system. So, a belt is important for IWB.

    I have used an IWB holster without a belt. But, only when walking in my yard or lounging around the house. If I go out in public, I want to have an effiicent CC system that will work in the way it was designed. (IWB carry was designed with the use of a GOOD gunbelt in mind!)
