Reminded me of a post I made a while back on THR
My carry belt snafu
On Saturday my wife and I were getting ready to take off for a shopping trip and a movie. Since we were going to be in the land of freedom (MN) I grabbed my J frame and pancake style leather holster. I was wearing a loose fitting pare of jeans and planning on using a belt holster, so a belt was going to be needed. The problem was I couldn’t find my High Noon carry belt anywhere! Since we were planning to see a movie time was short, so I had to settle for a cheap pressed leather belt that I got at Target. If I hadn’t been rushing around I think I would have remembered that this particular belt was falling apart.
We stopped at Menards first to pick up some lumber and I had to use the restroom. After finishing up in the restroom I buckled my pants and the stupid belt snapped right in two! I was non too pleased, I started running down my options for getting out of there without showing the whole world my gun. I had three options I could put my gun and holster in my front or back pocket, or I could carry it Mexican style. The jeans I was wearing were a little on the loose side so the Mexican carry was out. The rear pockets on my jeans were too small to adequately fit a J frame and holster so I ended up jamming the gun and holster into the front pocket of my jeans. While this option offered the best concealment it did cause a few problems. The first was that extra weight of the gun was pulling my pants down, and the second was I looked like I had jammed a cordless drill down my pants! I kept my pants up by putting my left hand in my pocket and tried to hide the bulge in my pants by pulling my sweatshirt down.
When I found my wife she commented loudly that she thought she was going to have to send a rescue party into the men’s rooms to find me. After I explained the whole my belt snapped off thing to her, she got even louder and started laughing hysterically. In the end I left my gun in the car. I don't think pocket carry is right for that particular pare of jeans.
I guess the moral of the story is make sure you are using a good gun belt, and if you can’t find your good belt, keep looking till you find it!!
