    New belt... bad holster...

    I have been using Don Hume First Agent holsters.... very comfortable... until I received my new 1 3/4" double layer bullhide belt from the beltman.
    Now, since the belt doesn't bend, the holter is bent to conform to the belt. It feels like I have a rock between the belt and my hip (owb).
    Anyone have recommendations for a owb holster that you have used with a good quality belt and found to be comfortable.

    BTW... Glock 26, SA XD40SC, P220, etc. I usually carry the SA.

    I like my 2 Kramer Handgun Leather - Revolver holsters, concealment holsters, paddle holster, 1911 holster, ankle holster horsehide belt scabbards with FBI cant. Of course my Tucker Gunleather HF-1 is prettier.

    Milt Sparks #55bn or other Askins types are comfortable with stiff belts.

    Thumbs up

    Nate's Regulator works well on my Rafter S and Beltman.

    YMMV

    +1 on the Regulator from UBG.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    If you want an off the shelf holster, I've been using a Galco Concealable for my Glock 19 for the last several months and it's been fine. Just got my first bullhide belt from The Beltman a few weeks ago but the two work well together and are plenty comfortable.

    Question



    I can't really figure out why that holster would be giving you any problems on a good belt.

    Me too... I love the holster, and it worked great with my cheap belt....except for sag.
    I think I might be trying to wear it too tight...?? I'm going to try wearing it in a different position for a while.

    How long have you had the new belt? It might just be the holster wings are now being forced to conform to your hip. If that's all it is, you should notice an improvement withing a week or so.

    With the 1.75" belt I can only imagine how uncomfortable it would be if cinched down too tight. Part of the advantage of wearing IWB is that you can wear the belt a bit more loosely since some of the support comes from your pants' waistband. IWB and OWB both have their advantages and trade offs here. Good luck!

    I really digging this Del Fatti SLP holster that LAS was kind enough to sell me two weeks ago.

    Seems to be fairly nicely built, comfortable and concealable.

    I can. Thin leather holster plus a stiff belt = the holster flattens out and collapses and then you can't insert or draw the gun. Back when I got my first decent gun belt, I immediately had to get rid of my cheap leather holsters like Desantis. It helps to get a holster which doesn't collapse under pressure.

    Kramer horsehide canted scabbard is like iron, in that regard.

    I will hold any comment on the holster but I do agree with Maclean3 on how long have you had the belt angle. Give it some time to wear it in and let it all conform to your shape. But of course it is a legitimate reason to buy another holster so...

    This is mine. That is yours.

    Lets keep it that way.

    You need to break that monster of a belt in. Right now, it's just a very stiff loop circling your body. I'd wear it without a holster as much as I could. Kramer also builds his belt loops already molded to accept a belt, unlike most other builders who's product required the belt loops to conform to the belt.
