    Something else that will help with the printing is a multi colored/patterened shirt. It will break up the outline of a print and make it much harder to spot that a light colored solid shirt.

    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    One you might check out it the Crossbreed Super-Tuck.

    It works very well for me and my XD45 4" Service Model. Depending on what I'm wearing, jeans or a dress suit, I can wear it anywhere from 3:00 to 5:00 comfortably.

    I carry my S&W model 66 at the 3:00 position in a Bianchi #5BH. The holster as two loops on it. When I feed the belt through the loops I always put my jeans belt loop between the two on the holster. This keeps the holster in place and also keeps it from flopping around. Also a good stiff belt helps to keep the holster in place.

    A better, deeper holster will conceal a larger frame gun. Carry at an angle also helps. And remember, you will notice the printing WAY before anyone else does... More than likely nobody will even notice, unless they are staring at you...
