    Got a Calco summer comfort for my 26 and it seams like no matter what position I put it in IT just diggs into my side, or worse pushes up out of my pants when I sit down. And before anybody says anything I also have a good Galco gun belt to go with it so its not the belt.
    Figured I would ask the Glocktalk braintrust

    Any chance it's digging into your "love handles". I've noticed that when I put on a few extra pounds, the holster starts to dig into my side.

    CTAC at 1630 to 1645.

    The grip sits right in that hollow spot right under the rib.

    I am guilty of needing to loose 30 or so extra pounds, however its the lower point of the holster that is digging in.

    With another 60 pound loss needed, I'll share my experience. I find that I tolerate no forward cant. I need the gun as deep into the pants as possible. For me it was an MTAC that did the job. I keep it at 4:30. I have dropped it down to the lowest position, and find it very comfortable.

    what the hell, are we only carrying at night?
    is this some new tactical trend i was unaware of?

    anyway, i carry around 2:30/ 3:00
    and no i don't spin the gun once around my waist to get it to 15:00.. :rofl:

    Get a gun belt & pants 2" larger. If that doesn't work, carry OWB. ;)

    Why is everyone ragging on Joe? 1600 isn't anything more than 4:00 in military time...so he wears his holster at the 4:00 position...duh...

    Added weight has appeared with at least 15-20 lbs. I could lose. I carry IWB around 3:30 with no problem of the holster digging in, or with the grip that fits nicely into my lower ribs / love handles. I do experience lower portion of the holster digging in slightly if carrying appendix or around 1-2:00.

    LH at approx. 2000. Still feel the pressure while in the truck, but as others have mentioned I could loose some "insulation" to make it more comfortable. My option is my Ruger LCP in the front pocket, but prefer the blade-tech IWB with the G-19.
