IWB Carry Questions
Hated to start a new thread for this but I needed some advise.
I have avoided IWB carry due to my size. However I have just got a chance to take a Max-Con V for a test run. It is an awsome holster and I am very impressed with it. So far it feels great in most of my daily chores except one.
In my daily travels there will be times where I will have to secure my firearm in the vehicle to enter state facilities. I am having a very hard time re-holstering the handgun while wearing the holster with my belt already tightened. Is there a trick to this or is it just a down side of IWB carry for a fat guy?
I assume practice makes perfect but I thought I'd ask if there were any tricks to making this easier.
The MaxCon doesn't have a reinforced mouth like the VMII which is complicating your problem. As long as the belt is tight and the gun is removed the mouth of the holster can close unless it's reinforced with a metal band or is very stiff like the Alessi PCH. Thats one of the reasons I sold my MaxCon. Excellent holster but lacking a design feature I fell is important!
Torrejon224 hit it right on hte head. Without reinfocement, the mouth collapses makeing it very difficult. The Max-Con has no reinforcement, nor does it have a thumb-break. I use a thum-break on one of my holsters to "guide" the muzzle back into the holster to open the mouth. I don't use that holster very often for that reason.
Well folks, this is as good of a time as any to announce the birth of the new Max-Con VI. It is a Max-Con V with a reinforcement band stitched to the mouth.
The V was never intended to provide one-handed reholstering, but due to customer demand we felt that we needed to offer that feature as an option. So, here it is!
We are taking orders for them now. They are $99.95 in Service Grade and $134.95 in Presentation Grade. Lead Time is 8-10 weeks Service Grade, 16-20 Weeks in Presentation Grade.
Photos will be posted as soon as possible - hopefully in the next week or so. Thanks!
Thanks for the replys, I am glad to know that I was not just an idiot.
This is an awsome holster and is very comfortable to wear even for a guy of my size. This is the first Brommeland holster I have seen in person and I am very very impressed with the quality and comfort. I was not aware that the re-holstering issues was a common concern but for Gary to take customer concerns and make a new holster that addresses them is a testiment to him and his business.
I have a feeling I may be one of the first to try his new design.
What a forum!! The service doesn't get any better than this!!! :embarassed: :yup:
But then, I'm one of the bias ones..... :rofl:
This is what is so great about this site and industry as well. The makers hear our concerns and comments and react upon them.

I use 3 of Gary's Max Con V's and have never had a problem with one handed reholstering.
