    Carrying a weapon is supposed to be comforting not comfortable!
    It's nice to be comfortable and I have tried alot of different methods of carry, but it seems like the only time I am comfortable is when I comfortted. If you know what I mean. Good Luck!

    Cotton button up shirts.. patterned or dark. STARCHED.
    The starch helps the fabric slide over your weapon and not print.

    Concealing your firearm.

    As a chief LEO and a 20 year veteran, I have tried a great number of various styles/types of concealment. I've found that we (especially LEO's) resist change and wet get stuck in our ways. I find that you must watch the various clothing styles, fads and fashions and see what works for you. You must give it time to get used to it. I've found that most usually, we're self-conscious and believe that the general public and LEO's can see our weapons, when in actuality, it's our own self-consciousness. Regardless of the mode of concealed carry, it's all a training/practice issue. I don't know what your body structure/build is like, but I stand 6'8" tall and now weigh 265. I rececently lost (over the course of 9 months last year) 120 pounds. Since that point, I've found that staying on the "trim" side has opened a new door to the many methods of concealed carry. I would suggest subscribing to some of the various firearms/personal defense related publications and see what the "experts" such as Ayoob, Rauch, Spaulding and other have to say about CCW methonds and weapons. Naturally, printed clothing hides/conceals better that plain colors. To me, the photo jouranilst vests or a jacket in hot weather are a greater "give away". I might suggest the tactial t-shirt from 5.11 Tactical or one of the belly bands" from a reputable manufacturer as a great method to carry a relatively quick access firearm.

    Being 51 as of four days ago, I'm thinking of having my stomach gut liposcutioned out and making a natural "bellyband" out of it, similar to a kangaroo's pouch! Ultimate concealment!

    Hawaiian shirts will cover a lot - loose, patterned, colorful. If they are bright enough, no one will give you another look (because it will hurt the eyes!)

    My saving grace a lot of the time and certainly in hot conditions, is my Smith & Alexander vest. It is not one that I feel shouts carry - just a whisper perhaps

    I am near shedding my thicker, long and full unbuttoned outer shirts - they are good enough to conceal a howitzer!

    Do tho practice the weakhand cross sweep for draw - and also (in case that hand/arm out of commission) a sweep aside with strong hand too.

    Let me again show Cruise' draw in Collateral - good sweep and with that a body lean away from rig - pretty slick with practice. A sort of sidebend reverse rotation move.
