    I carry my Kimber Pro CDP 2 in a Galco USA tuckable IWB all the time with a polo on; I have carried it in a dress shirt as well. Heck, I have even had friends who know I carry, see me with the tucked in shirt, and ask why I am not carrying when I had it on. I also carry my XD9sc in a Kholster with a shirt tucked all the time. Same results. I am lefty, so I tend to carry at 8 o'clock and never have had someone "make" me when carrying like that.

    Well, I carry IWB with tucked in shirts (polos and LS) every day, for almost three years, without a problem. I am 5'10" and 170lbs (medium built). I carry a Glock 27 in a Comp Tac with C clips (appendix carry) and a Beltman belt. I hope you find something that works for you. Good luck.

    I am able to conceal a Sig P220 Carry SAS in a SmartCarry in loose khakis, dress pants, carpenter jeans, and cargo shorts. I used to carry a Bobtailed Commender length 1911 in the SmartCarry. The Bobtail really helped.

    If SmartCarry is not for you, look at getting a good gun belt with a Velcro liner. Many holster makers offer V(Velcro)-Clips for this type of belt. The V-clips are almost undetectable as they hide securely behind the belt. Take a look at R Grizzle Leather.

    Also, some hoster makers make a low-profile "P" Clip. When worn as appendix carry, the tight-fitting, low-profile P-Clip looks like another loop on the belt if it is detected at all. Again, take a look at R Grizzle Leather.

    ok....you guys are good!! wow.

    I dont know jack about holster and types so I have my research cut out for me. I will look into these types you guys have mentioned and google them and go to websites to see them... so basically sounds like a holster that GOES way down in deep so to speak. I will research this....awsome.

    Im new and still learning and dont plan to start carrying right away. I need so more courses and hands on before i think im ready so...I have some time.

    thanks guys.

    Smart carry or belly band at appendix. Nothing to give you away.

    Get a single stack 9mm or a small .380 and carry with an IWB tuckable holster like the mini-tuck by CrossBreed. OR, use a pocket holster. You can't fit 10 pounds of gun in a 5 pound sack. Compromise on the clothes, belt, gun, etc.

    I do not mean to wear "oversized clothes" but rather clothing that is loose enough to fit the weapon you want to carry. For example, to carry a S&W M&P, if you would normally wear a size 32" waist without a weapon, a 33" waist may well facilitate the weapon with holster (34" for a thicker weapon). If you wear clothing that is painted on you do not stand a chance of carrying and not printing. I wear dockers slacks & oxford shirts. As a result of wearing slacks that are an inch larger in the waist than what I would wear without a weapon I can readily conceal (tucked) an M&P or a 1911 or (if I wear a baggy shirt and a looser pair of slacks) a Sig P229. Needless to say, fitted shirts work against your ability to conceal.

    I know that this is jeans & a 3 button polo. I am carrying a K-Frame in a DM Bullard Dual-Carry. You CAN tuck dang near anything if you dedicate yourself to the carry.

    OP- Are you concerned about printing, or are you also concerned about a "bump frisk?" You can conceal a handgun around your waist, but if you need to be discreet, there will always be the potential for getting discovered by an accidental bump (or hug).

    I am in dress attire daily, and used a Smartcarry with both a G19 and a G26 (not at the same time!) for over 3 years. However, I do a lot of driving, so it started to cause me pain while sitting. I downsized to pocket guns - I carry a Kahr PM9 in my right pocket, and a Ruger LCP in my left as a secondary. It's more comfortable, and very very...covert. The best thing is that I can have my hand in my pocket already gripping my sidearm in an "iffy" situation without alarming anyone or escalating anything.

    Good luck - lots of things to consider, so take your time.

    Try the hand on your weapon while using a smartcarry & you get a LOT of funny looks...

    Check out the 'tuckables' at the bottom of the page.

    I was going to ask if you need to go up a size or so in the waist to help. I dont like baggy but I see what your saying.

    thanks this has given me so great leads and will help with picking an every day carry. Im looking for a 9mm for sure as far as caliber goes but thinner may be better.

    Check out the Kahr PM9 or CM9... one of the thinnest 9MMs out there.
