    Hope this is in the right forum. I've worn suspenders for years and cannot figure how to open carrya piece about the size/wgt of a Bersa Thunder from my "belt"!I can't be the only one beltless who carries. My thinking is to a belt threaded thru the loops and the whole shebang held up w/suspenders. Plz adv.

    I think your thinking is right, you'll need a belt and suspenders.

    Perhaps you could get a Sam Browne type rig.

    Yes, a belt will be needed, but there is an easy solution.

    Wally World sells suspenders that have a "J" hook on each strap that goes under a belt, as opposed to button or snap suspenders. The are solid color, wide strap style and when hooked-up will support your pants and anything on the belt very comfortably w/o tightening the belt much at all.

    Check them out - I like them so much I have 3 pair in different colors: black, red & tan.

    Grapeshot beat me to it....those are great suspenders.

    They also have the kind that have a single clip on the side, it could go just behind a holster.

    But, I think the OP wanted to know how to use sans belt.....that is a little tougher and unless the pants were similar to fairly heavy weight jeans, don't know of a holster that would just hang on the top hem of pants w/o a belt.

    I guess that would be why they made shoulder and ankle holsters.

    A paddle holster by Fobus or Uncle Mike's might work for you sans-belt.
    Carry on!
