Shove two layers of 5" wide cardboard in your pants about 4-5" above the belt line and you'll get a good idea of how it will feel as you move about - try different positions [10-6 o'clock] until you find what feels best. Most people carry between 3 and 5 with the ideal position being whatever places the guns grip a close as possible to parallel with your body.
Another style that would work is a "small of the back" holster. You need to read up on that as there many pros and cons. Probably not a good idea to start, but just know that it is an option.
The next thing you need to decide is if you will carry an extra mag.
The next thing after that is you must have a high quality belt. In fact, this is what you need more than anything else. Nothing else is going to work as it should without it.
Do you need suggestions on some gear to look at? What is your budget? How soon do you need it?
