big bellied men wearing Thunder Wear

I have a big belly, I am considering trying the ThunderWear holster for my 4" XD45. Sometimes when I am sitting down, my belt buckle will cut into my belly. Not comfortable at all. Will the pistol also cut into my belly when I am sitting? Need to hear from you big bellied men out there that have tried this product and did this happen to you? Thanks.

    Do you really want a firearm pointing at the family jewels [:0][:0][V][V]

    Thunderwear is just about as useless as an ankle holster.
    At least with the ankle rig you can get to your gun while sitting!

    I have worn/used Thunderwear holsters consistently for almost 15 years with a variety of handguns and I have found them to be a safe and comfortable means for concealing your handgun. I know of numerous other concealed weapons permit holders who use Thunderwear with great success. Ankle holsters are extremely inefficient and are almost exclusively worn and used by those who are unaware of the better holster options available.

    Big guy here but theres no way I'm hiding my Taurus CIA in my crotch. So far I've carried it in a Blackhawk Speed Classic on my hip and it hides pretty well. I would try that shirt holster that Kramer Leather has--it's similar to a tank top with a holster sewn into the side.

    I like the leather vest w/inside gun pocket sold by the NRA. But I admit it's not suitable fashion for all occasions.

    I think that is going to depend on you.

    These holsters are like adjustable jock straps. They can be adjusted loose enough not to bite in and are well padded with a number of material thicknesses.
    After seeing a demo where two 1911s were pulled out, I was sold.
    Mine is the medium size that takes a G19 or smaller, Chief or any Keltec.
    It's not the quickest to get to but it's comfortable.
    It may be a little on the warm side for hot climates.
