    Mine doesn't ride up over the gun, but it will bunch up over the grip if all I'm using is a t shirt.

    Get a longer shirt.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I've purchased larger T-shirts and dress shirts for this exact reason.

    A looser fitting shirt will help a lot.
    I don't worry about it though, if it happens I just adjust the shirt, no biggie.

    Once in a while this happens to me. I know when to re-arrange myself, or to hold it down. It's all part of being aware...nothing to get excited over. Get excited and you draw attention to yourself.

    If you are wearing business casual, wear a light sport coat/blazer over your shirt. It conceals your firearm perfectly. If you are wearing all casual, wear an inner cotton shirt and a half sleeve shirt over it. The double layer helps conceal better even if you decide to unbutton the top layer shirt. Your shirts need to be a little long to conceal.

    I just ordered polos from 511. I like those because they don't shrink like the others. Even if you tuck the shirt in, they are great to conceal. They go well with the 511 tactical cargo pants.

    I check my shirt just like other men pat their pockets to check for wallet and keys. It becomes second nature.

    I had the same problem about 20 years ago. I got out of the car (it was very windy also) and adjusted my shirt and then waited in line for a cup of Cuban coffee. Next thing I knew I was in a full Nelson with a gun pressed against my head with 7 LEO's yelling "Why do you have a gun?" I told them that I had a permit and after I showed it to them they gave me my gun back and left. The people that I saw at that cafe twice a day never looked at me the same way again, they never saw the cops give someone there gun back and leave!
    After that experiance I learned to make sure that whatever guns I have on me are concealed.

    Every time I exit a vehicle or stand from a sitting position I pull my shirt down to make sure it didn't ride up or bunch up over the grip

    As some have already posted get longer shirts. I normally buy shirts from the tall men's section even though I am only 5'10" tall. I like the tail of my shirt to hang at least half way down my rear pockets. Also I found that tall mens t-shirts are long enough to go under the entire IWB holster so it is not against my skin.

    Ive been holding my shirt taila down on that side when i exit the car but im 6 5 1/2 tall 260 pounds most of my shirts come from the big and tall section and i always get 1 size larger my chest is large bit it helps to keep from printing very good.
    2 times yesturday my shirt had come up over the grip thats when i had noticed it when i got outa the car so i guess ill just keep 1 hand on my shirt tail from now on while exiting the car.

    I had to go the the bank and a finace company and to my place of work to get my check ( its in health care posted no weapons) thats the first time i havent had my firearm since getting my perment ill tell ya after having it then having to leave it behind makes ya feel kinda funny.
