For whatever reason, I've always hated wearing belts except for when I
dress up for special occasions. I know wearing a gun belt would make
carrying a lot easier but I usually use a inside the waist band holster
clipped to my pants at 4 o'clock. It does sag my pants whenever I
carry something heavy like my RIA Officers 1911 or the Taurus 617
but that's just me I guess. Do any of you wear a gun on your waist
without a holster and how do you handle that situation?

I only wish that I could keep a pair of pants up without a belt. Add the weight of a firearm into the equation without a belt and well....let's not go there.
I use and prefer a paddle holster which many could make use of without a belt if ones britches were to fit snug enough.

I've worn a belt since I've worn blue jeans, which is to say as soon as I got it of diapers. I bought a gun belt one year ago and really like it, so I'm not much help, am I?
I'll go sit down and watch the Broncos game now.
Duct tape. Ah, the possibilities!
Before the "gun belt" thing, many of us used a good leather belt to hold up our pants. The funny thing is, it worked very well when you added a holster and gun to it.
If I am not using a pocket holster, I will use my Blackhawk Speed Draw with my Taurus 85 in a discreet carry situation, or my Milt Sparks PMK with my .357 magnum. A good leather belt has worked for me for decades, long before the "gun belt" thing.

I've always worn belts... I don't see how one could carry many full size or even compact weighted pistols without some sort of belt or suspenders. I've been using a steel reinforced 16oz Bigfoot (sponsor here) as my carry belt. It is stiffer than my non-carry belt, but nothing horrible if you're used to wearing a thick belt.

Yeah try running, jumping, rolling, fighting without a gun belt.
You have pretty much zero security with no belt and just clipped to your pants. Not to mention it fatigues very quick. Now I have carried a Taurus 851UL in the past in a basketball shorts only because the gun was so light.
But for REAL serious carry a belt is a must. I need a belt to support my mag pouch and hold my pants up. I NEVER wear pants without a belt.
I just wear a regular belt
I like baseball, movies, good clothes, fast cars, whiskey, and you... what else you need to know? .
You carry a 1911 without a belt? Kudos my man! I am very thin and I have to have a gun belt for the heavier weapons. I can carry lighter ones with a regular belt. I wouldn't even try without any belt.

Belt for me. I find the Concealed Carry belt from Akers to be both comfortable and secure.
