    Glock 19 concealed carry

    Hi,
    This is my first post on here. I just purchased a G19 for concealed carry and to put in my night stand for defense. My cousin recommended this gun to me because he swares by it. However, I am 6'3", 155 pounds so I am tall and lean. I am having trouble concealing this gun for carry. My other options are to carry a 3" chiefs special or a walther PP in .32 that my dad gave me when I was younger. I would like to be able to carry the glock though since I just got it. Is there a good way to conceal a handgun like this for people who are lean?

    I'm 6'5", 200lbs. I carry the G19 IWB at about the 4 o'clock position, but more often in the cooler months I carry it OWB.

    For IWB a lot of it has to do with where you have it positioned, what holster works best for you, and for me a little extra slack in the pants helps.

    If you were to decide to go a different route, I'd at least carry a .380 or single stack 9.

    All you need is a great carry holster and belt. I'm 6'00" 175 lbs and I carry a Glock 30 IWB no problem.

    I'm 6'3" and carry a Sig 220 Carry in a Skyops holster at the 430is position and it works well. The drawback to this set up is you have to be VERY conscience of what you are wearing.

    Carrying any gun such as the G19 properly concealed yet properly accessible often requires a change in wardrobe mindset. Anyone (from beanpoles to Andre the Giants) can conceal a G19, one just needs to learn to dress around it. Try different options, IWB for some is preferred which means you can get pants that are a couple of extra inches in the waist band, shirts that a bit looser, or untucked can help - but holster selection is a key requirement to successful concealment. I don't know of anybody that has worked and practiced at carrying that doesn't have a collection of holsters available that have been put aside for something "better".

    I highly recommend the RM Holster Low Rider as an IWB for your Glock 19. Super light and so concealable you won't believe it. Welcome to our online store

    I have one for my Glock 19 and one for my PPK/S. Great product and a fair price, plus about three weeks to get it.

    I'm not nearly as tall nor thin as you...

    However...I have carried a Glock 19 every day for 18 months in a Smartcarry. Very comfy if shifted over to the 11:00 position, with the bottom of the grip centered on the zipper line.

    I currently carry a G26 this way, with a G19 mag inserted and another as a spare. The slightly shorter barrel/slide of the G26 is a bit more comfy when sitting for me, compared to the G19.

    Do a search - lots of info here on this holster.

    Good luck!

    learn to dress around the gun. a good gun belt will help. also, you might try a iwb holster. but a good gun belt will do the trick.

    The G19/23 size pistols are almost perfect for concealed carry.

    Big enough to shoot for a weekend course, small enough to hide on anyone.

    Seriously, with a little thought and effort, anyone can hide nearly anything.

    If you accept it as a challenge, I guarantee that 19 will disappear

    Good Holster....HBE Com III, or etc. H.B.E. Specialty LeatherWorks
    Great Belt...www.beltman.net
    Some looser fitting t-shirts, and/ or polos and button ups. Should be just fine.

    I am 6'3", but 285, so it is a different plight for me, I have a hard time getting shirts loose enough that dont hang to my knees or look like a tarp.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I, like you, thought it would be hard to conceal my Glock G19. I bought a CrossBreed SuperTuck Deluxe IWB hybrid holster and a Wilderness Instructor 5-stitch belt and I wear the same clothes as I always have - and the Glock disappears. At 3:30 position, it's so comfortable, I forget it's there. A good holster is the key but don't forget a good belt is nearly just as important.

    This is very true.

    I would suggest a nice holster and belt - Try the Crossbreed Supertuck and a Beltman (or any other high quality) belt.

    A proper belt and holster make all the difference in the world.

    thanks for all of the input. luckily, i dont live to far from cabelas, so hopefully i can try them on there. I'm new to concealed carry, I just got my permit about a week ago. If I could conceal my 1911 I shoot 50ft bullzeye with I would, but I just dont think that is very practical. Do any of you have any other tips on concealment?

    I have a holster similar in design to the Crossbreed. It comes in black, dark brown or natural leather. It has belt slots for OWB, also.

    With a great holster, you can conceal a pistol with a 5" barrel. You need a sturdy belt to support the weight of a loaded gun. Lastly, you need to dress around the gun. A great book is Handbook of Concealed Carry by Massad Ayoob, who covers the nuances of different methods of concealment.
