    CC around the house in Sweats/wind pants??

    Ok guys I often throw on a pair of sweat or athletic type wind pants while im on my "off time". they are just more comfortable than jeans and I seem to wear them a lot around the house on my off time..I will get home from work know im not planning on going out the rest of the night and throw them on or on a day off when I know im just gonna be lounging around....I often see do you CC at home threads..and for me a lot of the time is NO but thats a LOT because of what I wear...here is the question..since im not gonna change the way I dress when I get home just for the sake of CC do you think something like a LCP in a PROPER pant pocket holster would be "light" enough to be able to throw in my pocket for around the house carry on a day off or after work...A ready to go 12 GA 870 is a room away but who knows what can go on. I just know a Glock 23 or even my CH85 is too heavy for such use. it would pull them down to my knees :) how about a LCP or even the Taurus equivalent of that gun that got decent reviews in the last American Rifleman magazine??

    Yup.

    I do so with my 442 often. It does weigh my pocket down a lot, but it isn't to uncomfortable and works. A better comfort option is my P32 with the belt clip.

    Do your sweat/wind pants have a drawstring? If so, tighten it, and you should have no problems.

    Same here,
    Either my P3AT or Ruger LCP ( both of which have KelTec clips on them) does just fine on sweat pants, or in my case, on my scrubs.

    It is one of the few ways I could comfortably carry something while wearing scrubs.

    Smartcarry works great with sweats.

    I,m retired and I live in sweats in cooler weather and cargo shorts in the summer. I carry a LCP in a IWB High Noon every day without any problems.

    If you have strings to tighten, it should be fine. I'd honestly pick the LCP based on personal bias, but the Kel-tec wouldn't be a bad decision. (I'd hold off on the TCP based on the fact it's brand new.)

    Some might say they're under-powered but I think any BG will turn and run at the sound of any gun shot... giving you time to get your 12 gauge in case they decide to return. (Although BG's aren't the smartest creatures, I'd say almost all are smart enough to avoid a gunfight.)

    I carry a S&W 42 in my sweats all the time, does not pull them down at all.

    If I'm relaxed and wearing sweats or jams I feel comfortable enough with a gun parked on the end table right next to the TV remote. When I'm that comfortable I don't want a gun strapped on. If I'm working in the garage or the yard I just get dressed.

    I carry my S&W 442 in a Magill's Original bellyband when in sweats. It's the only way I have found that won't pull my pants down, and the snubby stays concealed. (I tried going back to my shoulder rig, but that's always a pain in the keaster to conceal from the postman, the UPS guy, the Girl Scout cookie seller, the Fuller Brush man, etc.).

    I wear sweats at the gym. I have been putting my LCP in a belly band but I do not put the band on my belly, I put it below my waist line so it is covered by my sweats completely. I do not tie off my sweats so I can have easy access to the LCP if needed. The one downfall is my LCP does get wet from sweat. I am working on that solution now.

    I don't wear them often because they don't lend themselves well to gun carry but when I do, I usually wear a small frame 38 IWB on an instructor belt under my sweats.

    Yes. When I am around the house in sweat/lounge pants, my LCP is in the waistband in a Desantis clip-on holster that also carries an extra mag. No problems. Before that it was the SP-101 in a SmartCarry.
