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

Written by James Marcus - Published on Feb 28, 2023

I'd just come home from Afghanistan, ready to reconnect with my family

But instead of a warm welcome, I was greeted with a cruel twist of fate.

A devastating car accident took away my wife and baby son.

Only my 5-year-old daughter and I were left to pick up the pieces.

The transformation from a decorated veteran to a single parent was abrupt and harsh. 

Every day was a battle, filled with worry and fear.

From the battlefield to home, my weapon had always been my shield. 

But now, carrying it daily presented a new set of challenges.

You see, I'm no lightweight. 

And for those of us carrying a bit of extra weight, finding a comfortable, reliable holster is like navigating a minefield.

"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 the hunt for the ideal holster, I went through more than a dozen, each one promised to be the 'best' by some self-proclaimed expert on the internet. Yet, none of them addressed the unique challenges us bigger guys face.

Overheating and Sweating: I, like many larger individuals, am prone to sweating. Most holsters failed to provide proper ventilation, making me uncomfortable and even causing potential damage to my firearm.

Fit: With my generous belly, tucking a gun into my waistband was a challenge. It would often end up concealed beneath layers of me.

Lower Back Pain: Whether kydex or leather, every holster focused the weight around a single point on my waist, leading to painful backaches.

Drawing While Seated: The trim, fit people in holster ads always drew while standing. But what about when you’re seated? Especially in a car, drawing was anything but smooth.

Gun Orientation: Several shoulder holsters I tried pointed the gun horizontally, directly behind me. This violated the second rule of gun safety: Always point the gun in the safest possible direction.

Before you cast judgment, remember that we gun owners are not careless. We place immense importance on safety. Except for a few outliers, we're the most meticulous folks around.

If your holster presents any of these problems, consider switching it. Or even consider not carrying at all. When it comes to firearms, safety should always be the priority.

"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 a late-night online search, I came across a review by a fellow veteran about the 'Fujobi Pancake Holster.'

Deciding to give it a shot, I found it to be the game-changer I needed.

The Fujobi Pancake Holster nestled comfortably on my hip without causing backache.

It replaced the sweaty discomfort of my old holster with a feeling of cool ease.

 Drawing my firearm became as effortless as reaching for my wallet.

"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 has now become a part of me, rather than an awkward attachment. 

The change wasn't just evident to me, but also to my daughter and those around me.

 No more fidgeting at school events, no more shirts soaked with sweat.

I regained the respect of my peers at work. 

Even in church, I was no longer a source of whispers and wary glances. 

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

It did more than just improve my daily carrying routine. 

It restored my respect and eased the tension around me. 

I became a figure of respect rather than a punchline, giving me newfound confidence.

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