    Heavy clothing and CCW

    Ok it's icing, snowing, sleeting like crazy outside. I have to go do my papers because lucky me, I'm one of the few that have 4 wheel drive Anyway somewhere within my 10 layers of clothing is my Glock 36. It would take me more then a few seconds to get to it if needed. How do the rest of you conceal when you have many layers of clothing on (and I'm not just talking about a sweater and jacket), and how would you get to your weapon quickly if needed?

    A J-frame in the outside pocket works well.

    If it were not a Glock...I'd say put it in your coat pocket.
    I'm not knocking Glocks...they are good pistols...but I aint carrying one loose in my pocket.

    Scroll down to the belt pack page ... inexpensive and work great on a webbing belt over the outergear.

    I'm one who never zips up his jacket so if you know you are not going to take off your jacket, a shoulder holster works great.

    I think it'd have to be in the outside layer... a pocket holster?
    If criminals weren't so stupid they'd stay home where it was warm!

    Outside layer---Coat with breast pockets, Kel-tec in weak-side breast pocket, either get rid of the button and replace with Velcro, or sew a button on with a minimal amount of thread, so the button would rip off if needed.

    Use weak hand to open pocket, and I hold the weak hand against the outside of the pocket, which holds the DeSanties holster in the pocket, while I use the strong hand to remove the 380. It comes out ready to work if needed.

    Try a few dry runs, and you will see it don't take long to get to your gun.

    Agree with the j-frame in the outer pocket. You can still carry your Glock on your waist.

    You could always move to a warmer climate!
    All kidding aside, small frame revolver or small auto, ie. Bersa 380 carried in outer layer pocket.
