    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.
    so appendix carry is just what it implies? carrying in your Front or 12 oclock..or by your APPENDIX? its not uncomfortable when sitting?

    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.
    MY concern is printing...dont hug much...but thats a good thing to keep in mind!!

    Most of the time I wear a CBST that I've trimmed down. I carry at the 1-2 position with a velcro backed belt and CB "velcro" cilps.

    This method works great for almost any type of clothing that utilizes a belt. A shirt easily tucks, there is NO bulge on your hip, it's extremely comfortable and the "velco" clips COMPLETELY hide the evidence of CC.

    I used to wear a "Smartcarry" almost exclusively. But, I like the increased accessibility that the CBST gives me. However, for "gym shorts"; "exercise wear" or "lounge pants", the "Smartcarry" is almost impossible to beat!

    I received my CrossBreed QwikClip a couple of weeks ago & it handles a Polo tuck nicely with a canted Kel-tec PF-9 at 4:30. You have to work the shirt a bit to make it look natural, but it conceals well.

    I expect that their SuperTuck Deluxe IWB holster would work well for the large to full-size pistols.

    Good luck!

    Just goes to show that everyone is different - I tried both the Supertuck (which I returned) and the Quik-clip (which I still have in my holster box of failed experiments ) and both made me look like I had a tumor.

    The ST and all other IWBs I've tried made me look like I had a tumor when I wore them in dress clothes. But, ever since I changed to AIWB position with my CBST Deluxe I don't have any printing issues.

    Incidently;
    What gun(s) does your quickclip fit?

    I got it for my G26 with CT Laserguard. Of course, a thinner gun would help somewhat, but it would still print.

    AIWB does not work for me - I'd have to lose more than a few pounds.

    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.

    No problem at all. I suggest bringing your carry rig with you when clothes shopping & trying it on to make sure that you have the right size so you are looking right while still giving the weapon and holster room to breathe. You don't need to go baggy to support a firearm, just slightly larger than what you would have without.

    Think about it this way. I use the same slacks if I am only pocket carrying & I just pop the gun belt a notch tighter to make it fit & they do not look baggy at all.

    The belt is an incredibly important part of the equation. It really does help more then I ever thought it would.

    Beltman Belts are outstanding (my opinion) they arrive pretty timely, they will hold up for a looong time, and they are not going to cost you arm/leg/first born...

    I worked the floor of a restaurant with a polo tucked into jeans with a full size 1911 in a Comptac C-TAC.

    I also had a Crossbreed product. It was absolutely horrid.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Yes. Usually somewhere in the 1 to 2 o'clock position. Comfort is going to depend on a few variables -- person's build, size of gun, design and size of holster. It's not for everybody, and you may not like it. I didn't carry a large gun in the appendix position, but it was fine for me with a Ruger 2-1/4" SP101 or a Ruger LCP. The SP101 was carried in an R Grizzle Leather Southern Sidekick, and the LCP was carried in a Desantis.

    Ken Null's SMZ shoulder holster - unless your dress shirt is a see-through white model. I use one with a Walther PPK/s.

    I think its a multi point answer thats needed.
    If your on a job site you will be bending, squatting, walking and sitting, so you better make sure whatever you do will stay
    hidden enough during all those activities.

    I say IWB tuckable calls for a thin gun like a Kahr or Walther PPS, and a thin holster. Appendix carry is great for some, I am
    short wasted and cannot pull it off. I would say a P229 is a pipe dream, but there are those that would disagree. If I am
    spotted packing in CA, I loose my license to carry, so discretion for me is king. I think you need to buy a new gun, you can
    thank me later.

    You've described how I carry 90%+ of the time. I have a Comp-Tac MTAC that I wear tucked at about 4-o' clock. I can conceal a full-sized SIG P220 or P226 pretty easily that way.

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

    The thing I really like about the High Noon clips is they loop around the belt and back up behind the belt. If you use as wide a belt as possible the clip doesn't stick down under the bottom of the belt as much as the clips that some other holsters use. These other clips always have a tab that sticks down, I guess to make it easier to unclip the holster. I don't have a problem with the High Noon clip. Just push finger in behind the belt next to the clip slide it forward so it's behind the clip and pull the clip out and over the belt. I'll take the little extra effort on unclipping to reduce the clip visability.
