I want to start seeing pictures where people are twisting/turning/bending to try to make yourself print. It's easy enough to wear a loose/long shirt and let it hang there to cover your weapon and holster. In the real world people have to move at the waist. How well does everyone's setup hold up to twist/turn/bend pics?
Personally, part of the reason I prefer to tuck is because of the twist/turn/bending that we have to do. I worry less that my shirt will pull up over the grip because it's anchored in my pants. It is also less prone to the sit/stand > shirt folds between my back and the grip. I know all you IWB's know what I'm talking about.
Here's my P239 in my tuckable IWB (pardon the fruit of the looms)
Yes, I know I print pretty badly on the bend, but it's a bend at the waist and not at the knees which I know is better for your back and for printing less. I bent at the waist for emphasis.
How do CTAC's, MV2's, K&D's, Tucker's, and others fare in the twist/turn/bend?
Yeah the bending at the waist is what gets you, even with a small gun.

Kel-Tec P-3AT with ArmaLaser and two spare mags in a SmartCarry
finally got the time to get some pics taken
my methods of concealed carry:
smartcarry (not often), this pic has my HK full size USP in it
HK in a Predator SO2 tuckable
G30 in Predator SO2 tuckable
...ooops don't know how that last pic got in there
still442, I like what you did with your Desantis Nemesis. I love seeing mods on holsters.
I was too embarrassed before to show my method of carrying , but now I'm stocked with top of the line gear and proud to show it off.
My XD40SC sits well in the Dakota Defender. Finally I can carry my XD. ( very comfortably ). The Tucker Cover-up is so comfortable I can hardley tell I'm carrying. My Deep Concealment Holster is also very comfortable. I can reach it by just leaving the top button undone.
It would be easier with another button undone, but it is deep concealment and I dont care if a button gets tore off while reaching.
I also have a Smartcarry I use now and then with my 642. I thought I'd spare you those pics.
I started wearing these shirts long before I started carrying.
I don't particularly like the gun touching my bare skin, so I tuck in my t-shirt.
