I hear ya, I'm 64! I have one of these holsters myself, but I can't get the gun back in the holster once I have removed it. I've tried a bunch of IWB holsters, and I just can't stand having something in my pants that don't belong there! Just me I guess, but then I carry a 1911A1. I really like the Yagui Style holsters, OTWB, and have settled with them as my carry holster. Glad you have found something that works for you. If it ain't comfortable, you probaly won't carry it!
