So I recently got my LTC.....and I also purchased a Don Hume IWB H715 with clip. I am wanting to carrying my S&W SW40VE.
I hardly ever wore a belt before...they always seem to hurt my lower back.
I tried using the Hume holster with a regular belt to try and see what position might be the most comfortable. I know a gun belt is required, but I was just trying to get an idea of where I might like to carry.
Anyhow, it seems like between 5-6 is the most comfortable as far as sitting, standing, driving are concerned.
But my lower back starts to hurt a bit from wearing the belt. I did have it cinched up quite tight to keep the holster in position.
Will a quality gun belt help with my back pain? I know it's hard to give/get advice over the net....but I was hoping maybe some of you could share your experiences/advice.
I was thinking of getting a belt from the Belt Man....but I am hesitant of spending the cash if I won't wear it because of discomfort.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
