They benefit greatly from a gun belt just like any other holster, but in a pinch they’ll do the job in sweatpants or gym shorts with the drawstring tied tight. Tight fitting jeans/chinos/cargo shorts sorta work, but you run the risk (esp with a tight holster-gun fit) of pulling the whole setup out of your waistband instead of just the gun from the holster.Does a paddle holster even require a belt? Never used one before.
