    Question Deep concealment in an academic setting

    First off, it's not a public institution and it's entirely legal for staff to carry concealed weapons.

    It's a setting with lots of students. My job will likely focus on night duty like last year, patrolling the grounds making sure there's no intruders (we've had men get onto the women' floor before). I have the Glock 19, and I could get a Crossbreed supertuck. But there's also a possibility I'll be working in the classroom where I really do not want it showing.

    I'm considering something like a PF9 for deep concealment with a Smart carry. There's also the fact that it'll be during the months of July and August. It won't be down South, but it won't be North Dakota either.

    Any thoughts?

    Cool

    Give some serious consideration of the Kahr series of highly concealable handguns.

    As a retired college prof let me strongly support the idea of carrying using a SmartCarry with whatever gun you might choose to carry. My SmartCarry preference is the Security V
    which allows for carrying the gun, an extra mag and other things as well.

    I have worn this particular combo with jeans, shorts, sweat pants, dress pants, and all work well.

    It is just a tremendous way to carry, particularly if deep carry is an objective.

    I really like the Bellyband for deep concealmet. I have a couple and use um often when deep concealment is a must. IMO, it's one of the better ways to conceal a firearm under clothing with little to no discomfort. YMMV.

    if you want off body options check out the planner holsters.


    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    smart carry my favorite. Practice with whatever you get so its smooth and natural (nothing like grabbing your small arm when going for the old p232 (ha) and make sure you have not affected a postural change or other tell). Check on some threads here on how different carry methods "show" or tell. There is a chart floating around here that is quite interesting.
    I have a pet theory that having a big package throws off the would be bad guys for smaller wimpier targets. Plus, if I see a tell, I sometimes point it out to the person for my enjoyment. I have yet to catch or have the gumption to point out a smartcarry tell (if you know what I mean). Is that a woody or are you carrying?
    enjoy!

    i love my smart carry (see review here: http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...w-females.html )
    as i said in my review, you can be wearing some very thin tight clothes and the most you will get is a tiny bulge by ur appendix. Nobody would ever think of it as a gun, imo.
    single stack guns work best but im sure a double would be fine

    PF9+SmartCarry is my personal choice in similar situations (that, or an LCP in a closed pocket).

    My sole complaint on the SmartCarry is that things tend to get a little warm for me.

    try a blade tech UCH. It's their small of the back "ultra concealment holster". I know many here don't like the SOB carry but I find there's a time for it and the BladeTech UCH allows me to carry a medium size 40cal 12+1 rds with a tucked in shirt when I need deeper concealment than my OWB.

    Sheep are really stupid. They are also blind to everything they don't expect to see. I'd carry using a Sparks VM2 and not worry about it.

    So, how many of you deep conceal double stack pistols? Could a G19 work with it?

    Oh, and I'm a male, so no super tight jeans for me thank you.

    - That really depends on your holster and dress. I don't like concealing a double stack gun like a Glock, but I can do it reasonably well. I tend to stick with a slimmer gun like a Kahr.

    I carry a G19 in an OWB paddle holster in winter or Crossbreed Super Tuck. You can conceal a G19.

    Pleated front dress pants really are beneficial with the smart carry.
