    Need holster that doesn't need a belt

    OK - Here's the deal. I am on the "large" side of things and I wear sweats or shorts with eleastic waist. Is there a holster that doesn't require a belt? A clip on the pants won't work because it would pull my pants down. Not really a good idea. Thanks.

    The only things that come to mind would be a Smart Carry, a shoulder holster or the Thunderwear.

    Remora or SmartCarry. A SmartCarry would be more secure in this case.

    Hey racerick,

    Welcome to the group!
    I'm a big guy as well and I find no comfort with a proper gun belt.
    Once I tried a Remora I was sold. Most days I carry a Sig P238 and some days a full size XD-40 Service model, both in Remora holsters and they simply stay put, even with drawstring-style sweatpants.... I can even meander around the house wearing just boxers with the Sig and it stays put (sorry for that mental image folks).

    Here's a decent review:

    From one big guy to another. I would go with a shoulder rig if you can stand to wear a cover garment. Ankle won't work as big guys have too much gut to bend that far easily. I am not sure the Remora will work if you don't tighten your pants - which is the whole point of the no belt thing. Thunderwear or a belly band could work if they make them big enough. A really nice, if somewhat expensive option is a leather CC vest - western style. They have built in holsters and are way different from the shoot me first tactical vests.

    I usually wear a belt holster or a shoulder rig. I am seriously considering a leather vest. The one shown below comes in big and tall sizes and has a concealed carry holster/pocket inside - like a breast pocket with easier access. There is one on each side, so it will work with left or right handed shooters.

    +1 for Remora (Home of the Original Remora No Clip IWB Concealment Holster) or a belly band (Belly Band Holster - The Original Bellyband - Concealment Holsters). I have both and they are great. I haven't tried Sticky Holsters - Redefining Concealment but they seem to be similar to Remora.

    Another vote for SmartCarry, and of course a healthier lifestyle.

    No belts for me!

    I've had my Smart Carry for 5 days now and love it. It's comfortable and I don't have to worry about someone seeing my firearm. I wear suspenders to the office and shorts / casual at home. I also was not willing to dress differently to conceal carry. The barrel points toward your leg - that made me feel much more comfortable. I searched the forums for 2 months before deciding on the Smart Carry. It may not be for everyone, but it sure is for me.
