    Question Conceal my glock on my slim female body

    I'd like to hear from some women or men, who might have the same problem as me. I love to carry my glock 19, but I am so small, very thin at the hips. Thats where I like to carry, IWB, or OWB. The handle of the gun sticks out, to noticeable, "I think". Do you have any ideas, or suggestions?

    I am not thin, in fact far from it, so I guess I have an advantage, but in my opinion, my girth pushes the gun but out moreso than on a thin person. For me, I carry both a full size 1911 and a Glock 17, IWB in the Sparks VMII holster. Both are pulled in very tight and snug and for me don't print, flop or bang on things. Both are very comfortable. A very sturdy belt is also a key to me. I have a Galco Royal Guard and a Sparks Summer Special, but neither snug up the pistol as much as the VM2. I carry occasionally OWB with a Sparks Axiom, but a jacket is a must for that.

    Have you tried canting the gun to about 20 degrees? I almost always carry at the 4:00 postion and the cant puts the handle of the gun close to the body. A good gun belt works wonders too.

    As others have suggested, a good quality gun belt, and possibly a smaller gun. If you have someone else who carries available to help work together to find out what is going to work best for you.

    Tough Call

    I've encountered this problem, as well... except it was before I bought the G-19, rather than after. IMHO, you have a couple of choices, you could either a) adjust cant or carry position as recommended above, or b) get a new weapon that's a little less brick-like. Good excuse to go shopping, though!

    Ooh! I like option B!

    Try using a belly band. They ride a bit higher and you can put the gun where ever you want.

    I'd try the cant option first. With my IWB kydex tuckable holster I can carry my full size HK USP45 with some cant and grip isn't noticeable. There are several factors in all this, cant, position, ride height, and size of weapon. Unfortunately you may end up needing a smaller weapon too.

    Try SmartCarry - Concealed Gun Holsters

    Try google for Tommy Gun Pack

    Try Glock 26 9mm with a Pearce magazine floor plate, then have a place to put all three fingers.

    Try a forward cant, or move the gun forward so it rests just infront of your hip bone. Thinner people have a little pocket there that is ideal for hiding a pistol.

    Slick,all the above is good advise.I've found you can conceal just about anything if you wear a big enough shirt.Seeins as you're from Fla. how about on of those flowerdy shirts or a Guayaberra in 2XXL--Jose45

    I'm not fat by any means and I can't carry OWB very well. I can carry a full size 1911 IWB very well. You need a good holster, with a bit of can't and wear it just behind the hip. Also, when you bend down to pick something up, bend your knees, not your waist.

    Lastly, you will notice MUCH more then the average person on the street.
