I normally wear my slacks around the largest part of my girth (the "sneeze" position, below). If I carry using by belt as support, I need to cinch it REAL SNUG to avoid losing my pants. I've built a homebrew SmartCarry-style rig and a 3:00 OWB-style, both of which I wear on a belt under my pants in the "Deep Concealment" style, below).
Has anyone of my caliber tried a for-reals SmartCarry? If so, how should I wear it? Or shall I recognize reality and go with a shoulder rig even with its limitations or compromise with a separate belt and a 3:00 IWB/OWB rig (worn in "Deep Concealment" style), add suspenders, or try something else I'm missing? I would prefer NOT to go with a 'personal item bag' or fanny pack.
I have a S&W 915 9mm pistol (their less-expensive 15+1), because it was a good deal and fits my hand perfectly. I'm also thinking of a piece of leather/etc. between the pinchy hammer and my delicate little tummy.
[And I'm working on my weight; down ~15 lbs so far: obviously a problem and hinders my ability to protect family, live long enough to see grandkids, etc.... that said...]
