I remember probably 25 years ago clearing ice off my concrete steps, I slipped and fell, sliding down each step with my back slammed into each step along the way. I was stunned (don't recall if I hit my head or not, I think I did one time) for a bit, but no damage! I was NOT ccw'g, but trust me there was a lot more potential for this alleged permanent injury in that event even w/o a gun.
I carry a Glock 27 in a Galco SOB at 4:00. I also make sure that all my shirts are long. I haven't had any problems sitting and having my weapon show. You might try a different carry position and pick up a few tall T-shirts.

Agreed. And, we should be safe everywhere but the reality of life is that we are not truly safe anywhere.Quote:
I agree that in church you should be safe...
However, there is one exception for LEOs of which I was a member of the PD when this happened, that's why I stated that if anyone complained to an officer in that auditorium they would have been told "he's one of us". The short jacket that rode up was embroidered with the town seal and "abc Police" on it (it was not a uniform jacket, just ones that the PD had made up for casual wear). Also, I was on duty directing traffic in the parking lot until such time as Town Meeting began and then under an agreement with my Chief, I changed shirts and jackets (had permission to wear dark pants instead of uniform pants) and sat down to take part in the Town Meeting.
...and since other church/temple/mosque shootings haven't convinced you, maybe yesterday's does? Sounds like the leader tried to tackle the gunman but was shot. Imagine if he'd had something other than the cermonial dagger on him.
By your post count and join date it is apparent that you are new to this forum.
You need to review the Texas CHL laws. It is only not allowed in Texas if the church is posted with a 30.06 sign, this should have been covered in your class.
As far as the OP, if you are only playing the risk numbers then you need not carry.
I carried a PM9 SOB for about a year, that holster became worn so I went with a Kydex and then started trying other positions. I never carry SOB now, 3:00 some of the time, 2:30 or so works good too (conceals very nice) if the weather permits I carry 4:00. My point? Try some other methods you might be pleasantly surprised.
Church & Temple attacks are on the rise.
Back at the OP--
Have you tried AIWB?
It really has taken care of ALL my printing issues and it's a lot more comfortable.
