    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.

    You're right about dark colors and patterns too.

    My favorite method of spring and fall carry is my P2000 in a Blackhawk SERPA covered by a longer waisted denim jacket. I carry the spare mag in the inside right-hand pocket and it keeps that side of the jacket down, even in the wind and I can brush it away easily when I draw.

    This summer, I'm gonna dress like Charlie Sheen; those shirts and cargo cutoffs w/an IWB.
    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.
    if someone does think that,they themselves probably have a CHL . i own about 30 Hawaiian shirts and this is pretty much my summer wear in TX. along w/shorts and nikes
    congrats,on your license youngda9 your thinking is going in the right direction.

    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.

    Tommy Bahama shirts also look like they could work, but they're pricey too.

    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.

    Do you guys that wear these "Charlie Sheen" shirts find yourself pulling more tail like he does on his TV show?

    I think you need some baggy khaki shorts, deck shoes, and above the ankle socks to round out the look.




    I would think this look might get you "made"
