    Let's See Your Pic's - How You Carry Concealed.

    I've been trying to find pictures of people carrying concealed, but have been having a hard time finding any. I've been trying to decide how to carry my 1911, and would like to see some pictures to learn from. If anyone has the time, could you post a pic of you having your gun concealed(as how normal people would see you outdoors), and then a pic of you revealing your guns location, and how you would draw it. I tried to ask at my CCW class, but they said that they couldn't discuss concealed carry options. Thanks in advance for any pic's,
    Nick

    Nick - I have a coupla pics from a while ago - I'll see if I can find them, having I think used them before. They are only quick shots with reload bench as background - but do show my vest in use which is regular cover in summer - in winter long shirt.

    I'll add here as and when I find the pics.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Well - these are old too - and the vest was an old worn one ....... but forgot - at same time repeated the deal with my heavy winter type shirt. BTW - not so good belt back then - since replaced ... plus I seem to always have real beat up jeans !!!

























    I can include too coupla pics from long ago when I had my Bianchi X-15 in use, under a light shirt ........

    Sorry, no pics...

    but I actually use the X-15 like P95 for my S&W 29. Alot of people have gotten away from this type of rig, but I really like it (especially during hunting season).
    For my XD I have a Desantis open-top Speed Scabbard (pancake type) that looks alot like the belt holster in the top photos. I have the Beltman 1 1/2" belt and it holds the rig in tight.

    No offense intended, but it doesn't matter what pics we post with our guns and clothes....if you wear loose vests and oversized shirts you can hide just about anything...you need to strap on a 45 and see if your dress will allow you to conceal it...if you don't have a holster for it yet, try it in your pants or between your belt and pants on your hip....if it feels bulky or is hard to conceal..it still will be with any holster you choose....

    Well, the reason that I asked was to see if oversized cloths were the only way to conceal. I've been trying to see what all kinds of options were available to me for carrying a 1911. Also, when I strap on my concealed holdster, I feel like I have a neon sign above my head stating that I have a gun, and in seeing these pictures, I can see that its not as bad as I think it is. And also, I was looking for different ideas for how to carry, there's always the chance to see something that I hadn't thought of before.

    Most of the time I wear IWB holsters with untucked polo shirts, seems to do the job nicely. It's nice to have a ppk/p3at or something like that so you can pocket carry and wear whatever you like. I suit the firearm to my clothing,(don't flame me please), not the other way around, just the way I am. I think your body type has alot to do with how you conceal as well, what works for one, may not work for another. I am 5'9" and 170lbs and have no problem concealing a full size 1911 in a IWB @ 2:00, although it is uncomfortable sometimes.

    That clothing style will even hide a 4" K frame carried OWB, and a 4" K frame is as long as a 5" 1911 due to the different way that revolver and semi auto barrels are measured.

    My DCW

    Here is the setup I wear daily S&W 642CT in a Smartcarry holster, Leatherman Original, Kershaw Blur (or Spiderco Delica), Surefire NRA Special G2Z, Bianchi speedstrips.
    This works for me.

    Under a lightweight, uninsulated canvas jacket in cool weather (shown in pic), or an insulated canvas jacket in cold weather. In warm weather I wear a short-sleeved button-up shirt. I either pull the shirt up with my left hand to draw, or I wear it unbuttoned with a colored t-shirt underneath. Another option I occasionally use is a somewhat loose-fitting t-shirt; this holster conceals well enough that I can wear my G19 completely concealed under a t-shirt.

    Maybe he is looking for ways he has not thought of.

    You don't always need loose, over sized clothing to hide your weapon.

    Nick - just remembered - another option which might be of interest is the UC Comfort ... and this thread includes info and a short vid.
