    I can do a well fitting t-shirt and basic shorts and no one notices my G26 IWB. IMO it's all about the length of the grip. I can't do a G19 with a well fitting shirt because the grip grabs the shirt every time I move, no matter which IWB holster I try, but with the G26 I can do just about anything with any shirt and no one knows a thing.

    My wife knows I always carry and is only surprised when I don't wear it. Last weekend I didn't wear it much because I was on vacation lounging in swim trunks and no shirt.

    Unbuttoned shirt works with my SuperTuck at 4 to 5, but not a t-shirt. I can carry the P238 or LCP in a SuperTuck with an untucked t-shirt and about anything else like shorts, jeans, or pants as long as it has a belt. I'd love to be able to do that with my 19, 26, or 36.

    I'm asking. I really want to figure this out. Even if it only works for my G26.

    On vacation at the beach a few weeks ago my wife said, "Wow, for the first time in years you're taking a vacation from the work computer AND carrying a gun. What gives?". Standing there in my swimsuit dripping wet I said, "Why would I abandon carrying?". She looked at me funny and I patted my trunks pocket. 442 in a freezer bag in my pocket. All day, in and out of the water. Can be fired from inside the bag.

    Yep ... exactly. Daughter asked me, "why haven't you been carrying any of your guns ? " ..... granddaughter told me "aren't you doing to carry a gun today " ...... all the while, it was right where it should be. This is more often when I was wearing shorts and t-shirts that I think they thought should have made it 'more visible' to them.

    I have tried to carry IWB with my CBST wearing a T-shirt. Nope, doesn't work. Prints and T-shirt rides up when I sit. XXL T-shirts too. Maybe a 3X T would work, but it would be so long it would look like a dress. Encouraging someone can pull this feat off.

    Not following the exact context of the OP here but I have become more concious of the clothes I buy and my belt budget went up by about $30.

    I do live in an open carry state where printing is not a legal issue, but that has nothing to do with my desire to stay completely concealed.
    I never said I wear shorts and a t shirt. There was a time when I piled all sorts of crap on to ensure I didn't let it show. Now, shorts, a t shirt, and a short sleeve button down is about as far as I go. If someone sees it or makes a guess, I no longer care.

    Nothing says dedication like a freezer bag holster!

    Some very enlightening and humorous comments. I'm 5'11" and it was much easier to conceal back when I weighed 220 than it is now at 185. Being fat definitely helps to conceal, which is good since running probably isn't an option:)

    I have not worn a "in the pants shirt" since 2004. That's when I got my Permit to carry. If I have to ware a Suit, I use a tuck-able style holster in case I want to take off the jacket. I carry Two Guns, extra Ammo, Flashlight, Knife, Pepper Spray, Wallet, Money Clip, Phone, Ear Plugs extra Batteries for Flashlight and Keys. For the Two times a year I ware a Suit I town down the gear a bit. This is any time of the year any weather.

    A few years back I was 2 hours into teaching the classroom portion of a pistol class when during a break I took my pistol out and put it away and retrieved a blue gun for demo purposes. One of the students came up and said "wow...and I've been sitting there the whole time wondering why the instructor did not have a gun on...."

    I just smiled and said "concealed" means "CONCEALED".
