    CBST With....?

    Been waiting for my CBST to come in and have been wondering others' thoughts on this. I realize that they are comfortable but I visualize myself wearing a very thin, underwear type, aka "wife beater" as they've been dubbed, tank top under it all that would go between the CB and me. I know this is a lot more comfortable when I go OWB but I was wondering if any here does the same, even with the raved comfort of the CBST. BTW, being hot here in the summer, I prefer to have a lightweight button up shirt that's not tucked in that goes over it all. Thanks for your views in advance!

    That's how I wear it, year round. I usually just wear a t-shirt for a cover shirt, but when I dress-up it's button down mafia type shirts for me. Enjoy your CBST, what are you gonna carry in it? Something neutered I'm sure...

    Right now I'm wearing my CBST with my G30. I do have a tank top between my skin and the leather on the holster. I have the combat cut and I don't like the way the grip feels against my skin. It is hot today in NY.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    I believe that the technical term for the 'wife-beater' is an 'a-shirt', which I use rather frequently in the AZ climate. It works for me.

    Some times I go without the undershirt, it works well, also. If you do decide to go without anything between you and your CBST, then consider horsehide.

    I wear an undershirt as well but not so much because of the leather. I don't care for the feel of metal on my skin.

    All summer a wear the CBST without any undershirt. I got it in horsehide without combat cut. That's what works best (most comfortable) for me.

    I never used to wear undershirts, not i wear one every day, mostly because I sweat like a racehorse.... wifebeaters are best to combat the heat IMHO. (no jokes about Florida please)

    I was referring to magazine capacity. I get to carry 15 + 1.

    Ahh ok. Yeah well maybe neutered but not quite shooting blanks. It's 7 + 1 but when I went to shop for it, I was looking for something nice and thin that would bark loud and bite hard. This should do well in the CBST and I can't wait to get it.

    I was disappointed yesterday when I came home from work and looked on my porch. There was a package there and I up'd my pace all exited. The holster was the only thing I was expecting in the mail and....looks about THE RIGHT SIZE PACKAGE!!.....AND.......crap, it's a package for my mother-in-law that was sent to my address. Talk about messed up.

    Thanks for the info guys. I've always heard everyone saying how comfortable they are but I still imagined that little added comfort to make it almost seem like it's not even there. Appreciate all the replies.

    I very rarely wear any type of undershirt between the holster and my body, as I haven't found the need to. I typically wear untucked t-shirts and just let the shirt hang over the rig. The few times I've worn an undershirt is when I carried the Supertuck with a tucked shirt, when I needed to dress more nicely than I would prefer.

    My ST is cow hide with a DIY "combat cut".
