TRUSS vs Kangaroo Carry, and which gun?

I need to CCW in business attire with absolute concealment, and came across the "belly band" type of holsters. They look pretty similar, I can't really tell much difference between them except that the TRUSS has either cross-draw or strong side options while the Kangaroo only has cross-draw, and the TRUSS has 2 shoulder straps while the Kangaroo only has one. I'm guessing 2 is better.

Anyone use either, or know if there's any functional difference? Cross-draw vs. strong side? I'm leaning toward strong side because I would prefer to carry spare mags on my non-dominant side.

2nd question - what is the best type of firearm to carry in this manner? I have a G19 but I'm almost positive it will print a lot. I was thinking of buying a G26 just to keep things simple, but are these holsters safe to carry a pistol with no manual safety and a round chambered? Maybe a snubby would be a better idea? I prefer to carry with a round chambered, and I don't like manual safeties on defensive handguns.

Hi Parallax,

I would like to say something regarding TRUSS and Kangaroo Carry. They look pretty similar. The TRUSS has either cross-draw or strong side options while the Kangaroo only has cross-draw and the TRUSS has 2 shoulder straps while the Kangaroo only has one. I am guessing 2 is better.

Hope this helps you a little bit!
Thanks a lot

How well do these sorts of holsters protect the gun from sweat, and how do they hold up to more athletic wearers?

My friend has been waistband/pocket carrying his Taurus .357 snubby for years, (the only one I've shot with a perfect trigger and operation..even half dissolved by sweat) How well would this stand up to his jogging and basketball routines?

He's intent upon replacing the poor thing with a PPS... and I'd hate to see the slow destruction of another gun at the hands (navel?) of my buddy's "routine"

Sorry I dont have experience with either, but between the two Truss looked more appealing. Ill keep on eye on the thread because im interested in what you decide. I'd like something for deep concealment but Belly Bands never did it for me.
