Question Belly band holster questions?

I have a couple of belly band holster questions?

Do you own a Daltech force belly band holster?

And what gun or guns do you carry in it?

I have one no name belly band holster that will fit almost anything up to a K frame Smith or a mid frame Glock. All I know is it is so uncomfortable It’s been sitting in a box for years.

I have 2. The first was a "Sounded like a good idea." situation. In light of the first the second was simply a stupid mistake! These, and a "T-Shirt holster", also a worthless ***, are still around only because I hate to throw away something I spent good money on, no matter how useless it is! Next time I come across them they go in the trash where they belong so they stop taking up useful space!!!!

I use one regularly, not that brand though. It carries my Walther PPS M2.

I carried a Walther PPK or a S&W Model 38 Bodyguard in an unknown brand belly-band rig for years in undercover operations. Usually carried it in the middle of my back with my shirt tucked in. The "hang" of the shirt in the small of the back hid the gun admirably.
As with anything, it takes some getting used to.

Tried one about 40 years ago, while working as a uniformed cop, carrying a 2" Model 36 under my uniform shirt as a back-up. Uncomfortable pretty well describes that experience. Add in the fact that it would be nearly impossible to get to the gun in less time than it takes to undress yourself.

I wear one every day. As JayCeeNC said it's just a matter of getting
used to it. The labels are long gone so I don't know the brand, but
the velcro never fails. If you try them, get two, so you can alternate.

They aren't bad if you wear them over your pants with an untucked shirt over it.

I'm with the majority here - one of the most uncomfortable things you can wear...

I have one and use it occasionally. It's not very comfortable but it's not painful either. You can get used to it. I'm not crazy about stretchy nylon covering my triggers though. I like hard Kydex or similar. Lately been very comfortably carrying appendix in Kydex with a wing and a wedge.
