Quiz Respondent

February 1st, 2008  

Dr. Piazza;

I very recently took the Front Sight “quiz” and have been getting the follow up emails/training reports from you.

Very interesting reading so far.

I haven’t received the DVD yet, but I am looking forward to absorbing it.

I do have a question, and I would appreciate a response, if you are so inclined.

I got the question (on the quiz) re where the best place to “wear” a concealed weapon is . correct . as I have heard that wearing inside one’s waistband is best, several times before.

I have also been told that if you feel it is awkward, then wear the rig 24/7 other than actually sleep time . and in a few days you will feel uncomfortable without it.

I have no idea though, what type of holster and belt is appropriate for this setup . nor where to position the holster . as wherever I do place the rig with my current holster, it just doesn’t seem “right”.

I have carried both of my .357 revolvers and my .45 Combat Commander (not at the same time 🙂 ) . yes I do have my carry permit . and although I would like to carry the Colt more often . it is by far the bulkiest package I have.

I realize I need to change . but have never discussed this at a gun shop, and feel that a discussion of this in a police station would be out of place

So . without asking you to give away “secrets” from your courses (as in the quiz you noted a .45 in the waistband is the best way to go) what holster/belt combination is recommended by Front Sight?

We recommend whatever is comfortable and secured by the belt and is worn slightly behind the point of the hip.

I personally like the leather, executive model my Milt Sparks holsters.
