    Custom vests

    My favorite carry is what I am wearing right now. It consists of a Storm King quilted vest with a self-sewn in ballistic nylon pocket. An Uncle Mikes clip on holster holds my Colt Dick Special on a weak side, butt forward, position. Very comfortable and well hidden.:D

    Snow Today In Pittsburgh

    Walrus 2034 - Good Idea.
    I always liked the Colt \"Dick Special\" - I sold mine \"back when\" & I\'m sorry that I did.
    I\'m about to go out & do some food shopping....real soon like.
    A good, lazy day for me to just put a stainless steel S&W J-Frame Centennial in the ol'leather winter coat pocket & make an easy day of it for \"concealed carry\" -
    The S&W Centennial is a good snag free (hammerless) basically waterproof reliable lil'defensive handgun.
    Double Action Only though but very nice with a tuned trigger/action job.
    It gets a great \"butter smooth\" DA trigger pull with just a little internal polishing.
    Happy Holiday Season To You.

    For Christmas last year, I bought my brother the Coronado Leather Safari Vest. It\'s well made, has lots of pockets, and has two large, reinforced concealed carry pockets on the inside.

    RR 5.11 vests are normal wear for me, tho I have several others too. I like the RR because of the cross draw ability when driving.

    I just got the velcro fastened holster for my 5.11 vest. Holds the gun well and no flopping around. I like it.

    I\'ve tried the vests on, but they look goofy on me. :( It doesn\'t really work well with my \"look,\" as it were. Too bad, though, because as a man I certainly am a fan of more pockets. :kay: (Oh dear - jumpsuits here I come . . . :barf: )

    Ahh, nothing like a nice pastel jumpsuit to blend in

    Well, I was just in Florida last week . . . although it might work equally well in parts of AZ. :P

    5.11 Print?

    Mine has an L frame S&W 296 in it. Sometimes also carry a second gun on the other side, a 3\" 37. No printing at all.
