Nate, try carrying a Sig 229 that way and let me know how it goes
I guess my point of the thread is that I have carried several ways for years, and even though I have invested in some decent holsters, I never bought a gun specific belt. I always read how much they help, but figured the what I thought was stiff dickies belt was good enough. The new galco I have is extremely thin, and very stiff vericaly but at the same time amazingly comfortable. Being so stiff, it really distiributes the weight of the gun, and even with a heave Sig, I find I dont even feel its presence. I cant imagine how good it must be with a smaller lighter gun. Moral of the story is spend a few bucks and get a carry specific belt, it is money very well spent.
