I wore a belt for 30 years and I am sick of it. I want an IWB that just attaches over the top of my pants/shorts --something that clips maybe really firmly to the fabric. Now; I'm a noob but I have really broad shoulders and a small head so it's okay to lay it on me if this is a really , really bad idea and stuff:laugh:

I found this Link Removed but I'd like it better in a real high quality leather--just not too big a fan of Nylon.

any ideas ? Point me toward a site maybe? Thanks .
 

Try using any of your current IWBs without a belt and I think that is what you can expect unless you do something like Super Carry.
 
You may want to look into a "belly band" type holster.. I usually wear jeans without a belt with a shirt tucked in. The belly band works for me in that type of attire. No belt needed. I can carry my Glock 27 with an extra mag on Fridays at the office and nobody knows. Friday is casual day at the office and we can wear jeans.

CrossBreed SuperTuck... I own one so my recommendation comes with actual use experience. Mark is the owner of the company and will respond to email questions quickly. I had mine shipped to me in 6 days. They are also sponsors of this site. I bought mine for my full frame M&P45 (pics on my user page) and I fell in love with it. I can go over a belt or just hook it on the top of my pants. The over top hooks can be adjusted independently of each other to fix cant or rise as desired. Do yourself a favor and at least look at the site page. Crossbreed Holsters > Home Good luck with the search…
 
I have an Uncle Mike's IWB that would work fine without a belt. The clip edge catches the seam of my jeans, so it won't come out of the waistband during draw.
 
I second the Cross Breed super tuck, as long as your pants fit fairly snug to keep the unit in place while deploying your gun you shouldent have a problem. It's the most comfortable thing I have ever used.
Good luck and God speed
 
I really appreciate the response all of you. Thanks! I will check everything offered and stuff....

I have seen many recommendations for the crossbreed--there's got to be something to it I imagine.

again--thanks for the help.
 
Link Removed also has Alessi Talon clip holsters. I have never tried their holsters but would consider them if I were looking for a new holster.
 
You would need some type of "foundation" to attach the holster. Without a solid platform, you run the risk of drawing your holster along with your firearm. An alternative method of carry, like the belly band or smart carry would be best if you want concealment without wearing a belt.

I carry a ruger P345 IWB in a Bianchi model 100 ( size 12 for my P345 )holster. I usualy wear a belt but not allways I hook the clip to my pants rather than the belt though pull the belt over if I am wearing it
 
On this one I third the Cross Breed. Not only will it work without a belt but it is a GREAT holster with or without!
 
Belly Band Review

I am a professional and wear slacks and a tucked shirt every day. I have the crossbread and it owrks well with jeans, but with my slacks, it looks like I am deformed. I can disguise it with my cell phone strategically placed, but the buldge is noticeable. I have been wearing the belly band for a couple of months now and I can wear it just above my wasteband at 3:00 and the gun dissappears where many people have a spare tire roll.
I carry a Browning 9 hp for size comparison.

The drawbacks I have found are as follows:

It appears the elastic will wear out pretty quickly. I'd say this thing will be worn out after 3-4 months of wear.

The literature mentions wearing it while jogging/exercising. Make sure you use the thumbguard for this. It is not secure enough without it. Thumb guard is not necessary for normal activity. The thumb guard is nothing but a strip of velcro by the way. There will be significant movement of the weapon no matter how tight you put it on for jogging. I am able to still jog, but it takes some getting used to. If you don't use the magazine pouch for a mag pouch, it works nicely to hold an ipod touch.

I find it uncomfortable without a t shirt under it. If you prefer not to wear a tshirt under it, you could sew something to it to keep the but/barrell/sight from chaffing the skin.

Overall, I have found it to be a good solution short of buying CC specific T shirts or buying pants that don't fit without a gun. It does have drawbacks, but so does every holster I've tried. With all tuckables, you are not going to be "Quick draw McGraw" so I generally avoid even worrying about that.

Uncle Mikes IWB works well for my Sig229 with out a belt but I still prefer the cross breed and a Belt. 3 to 4 oclock works well for me. Have not tried 10 oclock yet. Sometimes I carry S&W model 36 38 special 5 shot in an uncle Mikes with out a belt.
