I sometimes find myself changing clothes a couple times when I have to dress up trying to conceal the gun. I get frustrated sometimes. To me it's not an option rather to carry or not. I find a way.
I use to be able to hide my 642 easy enough, but because of a hand injury I've had to go to the larger grip so now I guess I need to get a pocket gun. I hate to have to settle for that, but it's better than not carrying at all.
It does get to be routine dressing around the gun. When you buy clothes, that thought is always at the front.
Congrats to you.

Seems like we all go through the same steps when we decide to carry. I had the same reaction when i shot 300 rounds of ammo and it cost me $60!
So now i reload my practice rounds for about .05 for a 45 ACP round and carry factory ammo. I just started carring my 3" 1911 in my front pocket, (pocket holster) No one notices. I walked into the mall the other day and there were state police all over the place. Not one gave me a second look, kind of makes you think that its a good idea to carry.

Hawaiian shirts are no give away in Austin, Texas. too many people wear them. anyway no one in austin( or anywhere else i believe)ever thinks anyone is carrying a gun.

I understand and have felt the same way about everything you said. I've been carrying for about a yr now and the first month I was paranoid. I got better when after watching people, I relized that nobody pays attention to me...more so in a place like Wal-Mart. Clothing can make or break you when carrying. Stay Safe!!!

The intel I got was from Calif.; that the gang bangers out there were on to the Hawaiian shirts. Perhaps they aren't a tell on a national level.

Don't want to derail this thread, but I like Tommy Bahama myself. I get mine at my local T.J.Max or Marshall's for about $12.00 a piece.
