    +1 for a pocket holster.

    I have to agree...gun proof the kids. But I also know that kids bring friends home. It's a tough choice but I raised 3 daughters and always hade a few guns around the house. Maybe I got lucky or did something right with my children I don't know. I do believe in having a gun available at all times is very important.

    If I am wearing lounge wear, I will use a High Noon Undertaker shoulder holster and cover it with a zippered sweatshirt.

    Suggestions?
    1. Shorts ; belly band and even at times wear a nylon gun belt under the shorts to hold the gun/holster, it's quite comfortable.
    2. Sweat pants; same as shorts, and /or pocket carry.

    Thanks for all of the replies, everyone. I'm going to give the smartcarry a try. I've tried pocket carry with an unloaded gun (thinking I would get a remora in the future) and my M&P9c is too heavy and drags my shorts down too much.

    And I do want to make a comment on the issue of the kids. My kids have definitely been trained properly. I have adopted the suggestions of Ayoob that he outlined in "In the Gravest Extreme". I am confident that my kids wouldn't touch any of my firearms without my permission. But the fact of the matter is that I believe it would be irresponsible to rely upon that. As an example, my kids also know that they are not to touch my iPhone without my permission. But I can think of more than one occassion where my 4-yr-old came up to me with iPhone in-hand and said "Daddy, here's your phone, you left it in the kitchen." The last thing I would need is for me to hear "Daddy, here is your gun, you left it next to your chair."

    Probably not a great example because my kids definitely know that the guns are in a totally different category than the phone. But I'm not taking any chances.

    Thanks again for the suggestions.

    Doc, I carry at home using IWB, OWB and a belly band. I have to agree with your approach to teaching your kids and your stance. If the firearm is not on my person, its in a safe locked down. I can control my kids, but their friends are another story.

    Galco Miami Classic or Classic Lite. Shoulder holsters are nice to use around the house. Expensive, but worth it IMO.

    I've had my Smartcarry for about a week now and I have to say that it is a fairly comfortable solution. There have been times that the sharp edges of the velcro on the waistband have poked me, but short of that it works well. Works great with both gym shorts and sweat pants.

    I'm not thrilled with the gun being near the family jewels, but I can live with that at home.

    I can't imagine that drawing from the Smartcarry can be as fast as from an IWB or OWB holster, but for carrying inside my home, I wouldn't think that is critical. In any event, it's much faster than running across a room to get a weapon.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Doc, I paid $10 at Gander for an archer's sleeve. A cast cover from a medical supply works as well to protect the skin from the rough edges on the Smartcarry. I think I'll tell Charlie to reduce the Velcro width or add material to the straps.

    I try to make sure my gym shorts or sweats (or pajama pants, for that matter) have pockets for a snub in a pocket holster. My youngest child is 13 and is a shooter herself, so it's not as big of a problem as I used to think it is. If I'm home and awake, I'm carrying.

    Cheers!

    I can wear the Remora with just about anything. I also carry my XDM .40 in anything but the loosest of shorts and I dont have many problems. The Remora really grabs the skin and holds itself up. Not to mention, Alan is a great guy to work with, and will make it right at all cost if there is any problems.
