Hip Pocket Handguns

Clint Smith will probably want to give me a knock on my noggin for this column, but having a hard head, I’ll proceed anyway. For a variety of reasons too involved to discuss here, I’ve not worn a belt for a couple of years. That means — no belt no belt holster. The most comfortable manner of packing a handgun I’ve ever experienced was with one of the Milt Sparks Summer Special inside the pants holsters. With that arrangement I’ve carried full size 1911s all day without a problem. The belt binds the gun against the body, which in turn keeps its weight from pulling downwards. But like I said — no belt no belt holster. Also for the very reason I’m built very broad I find shoulder holsters most uncomfortable. Also here in Montana for most of the year you need to wear a winter coat, which of course inhibits access to a shoulder holster anyway.
