Like everyone else, Im always looking for a better way to tote a gun concealed. Ive tried various holsters and even made a few little gadgets that work OK but I always considered it a hassle to have to thread a holster on or off of a belt when needed. I usually carry in the small of my back and I can hide a full sized Government model with no problems.

I think I've found a solution. I ordered a gunbelt from Bandera Leather in Texas, that has a gunbelt with a slot sewn into the belt. Its a great idea, when you need to go somewhere you just stick the gun in the belt and be done with it.

It works great for those that get off from work and my not be going straight home. Rather than go though the trouble of taking off a belt and threading it in or trying to position an IWD holster just right, its a lot quicker and more inconspicuos to just stick the gun in the belt.

It holds the gun close, and its comfortable. I've been wearing mine to work and not one person has even noticed the gun slot due to the way its made.
Its not cheap at 65 bucks, but its an exellent product and one worth looking into. Check it out here...

Same thickness as the belt...and being a gunbelt is thicker than a standard belt. It has exellent support. In fact, even without the gun the support is noticable.

Since Ive got a case of "prosperity gut" thats a GOOD thing !

Not really.It does take two...

But look at it like this....

IF you ever have to draw and fire...

when its over your hands will be shaking so much form the adrenaline dump that using two hands to put the gun back in the holster might be a good thing...

And the belt is prett enough to wear on occasions that the Widerness belt is not...

What it does do is allow me to carry more often than I used to...due to the circumstances.

Holstering with two hands, although it sounds bad, isnt really an issue with a civilian that carrys concealed.
As for pointing the gun at yourself, if you arent paying attention you can do that with just about any holster, ecspecially an IWB holster.

There are advantages and disavantages to just about every carry set up out there. In my case, the advantages of wearing the holster everywhere,everyday and anywhere outweigh the disadvantages.
