Seeing the outline of the weapon through in the cover garment is called "printing". A weapon that is printing is "not" concealed.......seems it would be hard not to at least have the outline of the grip showing through the shirt (I wear a lot of t-shirts during the summer months).
You experiment with guns and holsters till you find a combination that does not print. Concealed carry guns are not picked in response to a fad, or a testosterone spill in aisle 3 of the gun store, they are picked because they a gun that is both concealable on the body of the buyer, and a gun that the buyer shoots well in mock defensive situations. Moving/draw/double tap to COM, etc.How does one go about keeping the outline of the grip showing through the shirt?
That's why I have two carry guns. Glock 26 is my normal every day carry, a Ruger LCP is my pocket carry. I carry the Glock 26 in a CrossBreed SuperTuck at 4:30 it hides under everything but a T-shirt with out printing. When I "must" wear only a T-shirt, or other clothing that just plain won't completely conceal the Glock 26, I carry my Ruger LCP in a front pocket.
They are, at least for me. I only own one OWB holster. It's used only for IDPA matches because my SuperTuck isn't allowed by the range master.I guess I understand using a inside the belt holster vs a outside the belt......seems that a outside the belt would be very hard to hide.
At this point you need to buy a couple of books on concealed carry and read them. One of the books should be "In Gravest Extreme" by Massad Ayoob. There is another that he wrote that talks all about what you are asking here. Read it. It's better input than you will get from unknown respondants on forums, inclluding me.And on all the different types and designs of CC holsters.......seem to have a lot of "terms" related to all the different types & styles of holsters.....is there a web site somewhere that explains all those terms?
People have written books in answer to that question. Time to get a couple and read them. Read first, buy gun second.Also of all the different styles & types what are the advantages & disadvantages to each type?
