Factors to Consider When Choosing a Belly Band Holster

When choosing a belly band holster, there are several important factors to consider in order to ensure the best possible experience.

1. Comfort: The first and most important factor is comfort. Make sure the holster is made with high quality materials that won’t irritate your skin and cause any discomfort. A good fit and adjustable straps will also help provide maximum comfort.

2. Security: The holster should be strong enough to provide proper retention and protection against accidental discharges. Look for a belly band holster that is made of durable material and has secure straps or buckles to make sure it stays in place.

3. Size: Consider the size of your gun when choosing a belly band holster. It should fit your firearm perfectly so you don’t have to worry about the gun slipping out or not staying secure.

4. Accessibility: Choose a holster that allows for quick and easy access to your firearm in case you need it in an emergency situation. 

How to Wear a Belly Band Holster

Wearing a belly band holster is a great way to keep your gun secure and concealed. But you may be wondering how exactly to wear it? The first step is deciding where on your body you want to wear it. Most people prefer to wear them around their waist, but they can also be worn around the thigh or even across the chest.

Once you’ve determined where you want to wear it, you’ll need to adjust it for a comfortable fit. Start by placing the holster on your body and looping the Velcro straps around your body until the holster is secured in place. Make sure that you adjust the tightness so that the holster stays in place but is still comfortable enough to allow for natural movement.

Next, check the retention of the holster. You want to make sure that the holster retains your gun securely yet allows you to draw quickly when needed. You can adjust the retention by tightening or loosening the Velcro straps until you get the desired fit.

Finally, if you plan to carry an extra magazine, you can attach it to the side of the holster using the included clips or straps. Make sure that your spare magazine is securely fastened so that it won’t come loose during movement.

Once you’ve adjusted your belly band holster for a comfortable fit, it should stay secure throughout your activities. Wearing a belly band holster is an excellent way to conceal carry your firearm while maintaining comfort and convenience.
