why it's so hard for a fat veteran to find a good holster?

Written by James Marcus - Published on Feb 28, 2023

Imagine coming back from serving in the far-flung valleys of Afghanistan, expecting the comforting embrace of your wife and the jubilant laughter of your little girl. 

Instead, you're greeted with empty bank accounts, betrayal, and a broken family.

My wife had abandoned me, stealing all our savings, leaving behind nothing but our 9-year-old daughter and a gaping hole of heartache.

Going from a soldier on the frontlines to a single parent in an instant felt like jumping from the frying pan into the fire. 

And the constant concern for my daughter's safety turned my gun from an optional tool into an everyday necessity.

I got depressed, ate a lot, and became a big fat man. And for those of us with a bit more to love, finding a comfortable, reliable holster is like trying to find an oasis in the desert.

"This holster works well and an IWB holster. It is comfortable and hold a variety of CC guns. It holds the guns tight but they can easily be drawn."

In my quest for the right fit, I tested numerous holsters, each one supposedly 'the best' according to some YouTube expert. Yet, none tackled the unique issues we bigger guys face.

Overheating and Sweat: Larger folks like me tend to sweat more. Most holsters failed to provide ventilation. This resulted in discomfort, and worse, potential damage to my firearm.

Fit: Sporting a bit of a belly, tucking my gun into my waistband often left it obscured beneath layers of me.

Lower Back Pain: Regardless of whether they were made of kydex or leather, every holster I tried put all the weight in one spot around my waist, causing excruciating backache.

Seated Drawing: Almost all holster ads showcase trim, fit individuals drawing while standing. What about drawing while seated? Especially in a vehicle, it was anything but a smooth operation.

Safe Orientation: A few local leather shoulder holsters I tried pointed the gun horizontally, directly behind me. That violated the second rule of gun safety: Always point the gun in the safest possible direction.

Before you judge, remember, gun owners like me aren't reckless. We deeply care about safety. Except for a few bad examples, we're careful folks.

If you're dealing with any of these holster issues, consider swapping it out. Or even consider not carrying at all. With firearms, it's always safer to be sorry than regret.

"I’m 5’8” 150lb woman who carries a 9 mm. This is the best holster. Very comfortable, makes it much easier to conceal."

Humiliation on the Hip: My Holster Horror Stories

What can a bad holster do, you may wonder?

It doesn't just cause minor inconvenience or a bit of discomfort. 

It can ruin your day and land you in awkward situations, and I have countless stories to prove it.

I was at my daughter's school recital. 

My uncomfortable, sweat-inducing holster soaked my shirt, prompting children to point and laugh. It was a nightmare.

At my daughter's soccer game, my rigid holster caused so much discomfort that I couldn't sit still. 

Parents started giving me strange looks. I felt like an outsider.

Then, during a road trip with friends, the discomfort and sweat from my holster necessitated frequent adjustments.

Everyone made jokes about my 'sweaty problem.'

Yes, a bad holster can put you in embarrassing predicaments.

"I have purchased quite a few holsters for my S&W .40 trying to find that perfect fit for all day carry and comfort... And I've finally found that here!

This padded holster makes it so comfortable while sitting. No pinching, binding or rubbing. Easy to clip onto my belt and stays in place. Overall great value for the money. So glad I picked this up... Just wish I would have found this first!!."


During one of my online searches, I stumbled across a review by my cousin, a fellow vet, praising the 'Fujobi Pancake Holster.' 

Intrigued, I gave it a shot.

To say the Fujobi Pancake Holster was a revelation would be an understatement.

 It sat comfortably on my hip, causing no backaches. The sweaty discomfort of my previous holster was replaced with cool, dry comfort. 

Drawing my firearm became as simple as retrieving my wallet. 

From that point on, the Fujobi Pancake Holster was my everyday carry.

"Way better than I was expecting for the money I spent. Fits my gen 3 g26 and sig p290rs both perfectly. Clips are strong and distribute the weight of the pistol evenly."


The Fujobi holster is now an extension of me, not a bothersome attachment I once had. 

The change in me was noticeable to my daughter and those around me. 

No more awkward shifting at school events, no more sweat-stained shirts.

I regained the respect of my peers at work.

 Even at church, people stopped whispering and started showing respect for my responsibility as a firearm owner. 

My choice of the Fujobi Pancake Holster played a significant role in this change.

It didn't just simplify my daily carrying routine. 

It garnered newfound respect and eased the tension in my surroundings. 

I became a figure of authority, not a subject of jest, and it boosted my confidence in ways I hadn't imagined.

"Pretty good holster overall. Clips well and is sturdy. It fits my Beretta 92 well."
