    concealed carry methods

    I have a gock 26, the small 9mm. I carry now in a fanny pack but I think it looks to obvious, especially with the quick open strings sticking out the corner. I noemally dress in dockers and a tucked in polo shirt. Any suggestions on cary options. I'm not real big on the ancle holster but it may be the best way to go.

    Have you seen SmartCarry? I own one and it will definitely conceal well in business attire, and also is comfortable. IMHO access time however is not as fast as a fanny pack or a OWB/IWB setup. But it's worth a look.

    The co. gives a 30 day money back guarantee so you can try & return if you don't like it.

    Well the way I see it you have 2 options with your current clothes.

    IWB or Bellyband. If your shirts are a close fit then forget about the bellyband. You can get a tuckable IWB holster but I can not recommend any as of yet because I am still waiting for mine.

    If you can bring yourself to untuck the shirt, IWB is a great option with a good holster. You can conceal some big pistols very comfortably with an untucked shirt.

    Try one of their IWB tuckable holsters. I have 3 and love them.

    Nobody's recommended the comp-tac C.t.a.c. yet?

    it's tuckable. I wear it tucked with polo shirts and button down shirts every weekday. Works great, and I don't have a gun floating around my unmentionables as with smartcarry

    I might suggest that you try the "Holster Shirt" from 5.11 Tactical. Greg Kramer from Kramer Gun Leather also offers a similar style shirt as does Lenny McGiil from McGills.com. These are extremely comfortable and very concealable, yet easy to access your handgun.

    I had to change some of my dress habits to accommodate my pistol. Nothing drastic and still not looking out of place. Most folks I know who carry had to make some adjustments. I read somewhere that the thing to do if you are serious about CCW is, dress for the gun. There are many ways to dress for the gun and still remain stylish.

    I use a smartcarry, with a small, light J-Frame. Works great, better if you use pleated pants... Also, something else I've tried which works well. I have Wilderness instructor belt, which goes on over top my underware, very low on the hips. My IWB Summer special from Milt Sparks, then attaches to the instructor belt. Position the belt so that the grip of your small j-frame is directly under your dress belt. Almost invisible, and you have access to grip...I prefer this if your sitting alot...

    I have found that no matter how you are dressed arround your pistol on presentation it is considered stylish, so stylish that some folks in the immediate area will recipirocate by showing you thier new felony flyers , specificly the soles there of

    i am often in business attire. When I have to go into public, for example business dinners or meetings, I use a smart carry. it is for deep concealment and virtually zero chance of being noticed. It is very comfortable for me, and it actually helps keep your dress shirt tucked in! Call Charlie at www.smartcarry.com (this is where you get the number). He can talk to you about the product and does a money back guarantee.

    Same here, it's the only way I carry. It doesn't matter what or how you wear your clothes, I've never been detected. I personally feel that too much emphesis is placed on "speed", I can have my PT111 in my hand in 2-3 seconds and I'm at an advantage because no one knows I have one on me. Plus, if it came to be a real fire fight, the SmartCarry has a pouch for a spare mag.
