    Don't let those flat-landers steal any mountaineer from you! I wouldn't trade a square acre in West Virginia for (no offense Mike) a square mile in Ohio.

    I agree, OP. I've used a Vedder Holsters Four-Way Belly Band at work for about the last year, and I love it! I wear loose-fitting button up shirts and khakis, and I've found that I can successfully conceal at about 4:00 a Glock 19, M&P 40 full size, or a 1911 Commander - both lightweight and all-steel. For me, it's the ideal way to carry when I have to be completely concealed.

Luckily no one was down there to see it except my 19 yo (at the time) daughter. Not sure how it worked its way out as she had carried that way several times.
    I know the white ghost feeling, I was using a Yaqui slide with a 1911 5" and sitting on a wood chair in a restaurant the barrel hit the chair bottom and gun poppet out, luckily it stayed with in my shirt and was able to put it back, after that incident I won't buy a holster with the barrel exposed, I mostly carry, IWB now days anyway.

    I have worn my 3 Speed Holster while taking my grandkids to community pool. I was wearing belt-less drawstring shorts and a dark baggy tee. This way I blended in with the other parents at pool. (Carried my G19 and spare magazine). I live in Gulf Coast Texas where Summer tends to be in mid to high 90s.

    If I place mine above the waist line or higher it has been too warm. If I place it low like a Smart Carry it dosen't feel as warm to me. I don't use mine a lot. I'll use it when I have a Suit on. (very rare) or after a shower under a pajama top. I use it more as a back support.

    I've carried using a bellyband under a tucked-in shirt at work, and while it works and allows a decent sized gun to be carried, it suffers from a draw stroke that is complicated by first having to rip out your tucked-in shirt. In practice, I've found it to be too prone to a fouled draw. I thus reverted back to carrying smaller pocket guns when I need to tuck my shirt in, as there is no need to remove a cover garment before the draw.

    That said, if it works for you, then go for it.
