    Tactical Tie Dye

    I just began carrying in the past year, and recently discovered that tie dye t-shirts do a remarkable job of concealed cover. Guess the patterns help break up any possible imprint. I can wear my 1911 IWB no problem.

    Peace.

    Last saw The Dead 'bout 25 years ago so I don't have any functional tie-dye left; but a pattern, any pattern, seems to really help in concealment. Madras anyone??

    Far out man! Tie-dyed T-shirts are groovy!! I made a bunch of them back in the late 60's but they have all disintegrated by now. Need to get a couple new ones.

    I use "Steal Your Face" patches on my Tactical bags, makes em look less tactical while out in public. Tye dye is a great way to keep things hidden in plain sight. I still have a few friends that do Tye Dye, you got me thinking about a tye dye molle setup..... Hmmmm

    I suppose if tie dye is acceptable dress for you in your area. Around here you'd stick out like a sore thumb unless you're under 25, blonde and female.

    In redneckville, camo is the way to go.

    I prefer Hawaiian shirts. They conceal well and if someone shoots me it wont be because they see my gun its because I'm wearing a god awful shirt.

    Yeah, Tala, I wouldn't wear tie dye in AR...or AL, or lot of places between the coasts. Around here, they're fairly popular, definitely casual bbq or beach wear. They even have H-D tie dyes at my Valley Forge Harley dealership!

    I just want to find ways to carry my Kimber Ultra Raptor II in the summer! Don't want to have to settle for my pocket gun.

    Definitely Madras. The texture as well as the pattern works very well.

    My daily carry paisley print holster conceals very nicely under my many NERU Jackets.
    Also Bell Bottom jeans & ankle holsters also work really well together.

    Actually I could get away with wearing a tie dyed T-Shirt around here every once in a while.

    It doesn't hurt that you are basically camouflaging yourself as a hippy either. No one thinks a hippy would have a gun.
