    Question Different carry methods described?

    Any stickies or websites with good pics describing different carry methods?

    Will be getting HK P2000SK.

    I'm a Realtor in Orlando. Typically I wear slacks and polo shirts. Occasionally dress slacks and dress shirt- but rarely.

    So, I need to conceal in hot weather under a polo shirt or nice short sleeve shirt and docker type pants.

    I'm 5'10" 215lbs. Ahtletic cut.

    I get 'slim fit' shirts and there is still a lot of material on the sides by the lats/back.

    I always tuck my shirts in. It isn't an option to go untucked.

    My instinct was to get a good shoulder rig as my upper torso has a V shape and I was thinking I could pretty easily hide a sub compact gun to my left side.

    I am right handed.

    I drive a lot.

    I am willing to spend $$$ to get quality carry gear.

    Who makes the best shoulder carry gear?

    The gun store sales dude was showing me an IWB holster which fit me well as I've lost 10lbs and have an extra inch in my slacks.

    Overall though- I'd like to try a shoulder system.

    What about ankle- or actually calve carry? It is a light sub compact- the HK P2000SK. I have huge calves so there is plenty of meat to grasp on to. :)

    I realize IWB is very popular, but I'd like to try another method as driving is a big part of my work.

    OK, no shoulder holster info from me, but I have dealt with "office dress carry".

    3:00 IWB tucked CTAC with V-clips and a Kahr subcompact is comfortable enough for me to take on lengthy drives and all day office wear, usually seated. It is the least comfy IWB I have, though.

    Pocket carry of a Kahr PM series in slacks, nice hiking/cargo shorts, and some "dress shorts" works if the pocket slot is wide enough, but you lose that pocket for any keys, phone, etc. Still, a nice choice IMHO.

    Thunderwear works OK, as long as you don't have to do much squatting, kneeling or bending. Sometimes a gun in Thunderwear "pitches a tent" when you are seated, which is not desirable in thin dress slacks, I can tell you. It's cheap enough to try and see if you like, and virtually invisible when basic standing/sitting expected.

    This last one I have not tried, but if I do, it will be with a 4" gun. It starts to resemble SmartCarry, and that reminds me of the undershirt holsters that I have not tried, either.

    I have been using and ankle holster for 2 years and love it.

    I can get to it when Im driving { Car jacker stopper }

    If you are going it use a shoulder rig under a polo shert peaple Will See

    the straps from behind.

    My ankle holster was a little $$ but it is the Best . I can run with it and

    the gun stays in the holster. Ken hand fixs each holster.

    UnderCover Comfort holster shirt.

    Excellent for deep concealment. I am now wearing it daily and it cannot be seen. Won't work well for polos, but for button-down shirts, it is great.

    Not quite a shoulder holster, but the Kangaroo holster has been getting great reviews lately. There are also lots of tuckable rigs out there which may work for you. Pocket carry may be an option to consider as well.

    I would suggest the combination of an ankle rig and a pocket gun. If you are seated, the pocket gun is inaccessable, but the ankle is easily drawn. If you are standing, the ankle rig is way too slow, but the pocket gun is super fast. The two working together is the best option for "office casual" that I can think of. This method provides a back-up gun as well, which makes it pretty tough to beat.

    As far as shoulder rigs go, I would recommend Matt DelFatti or Lou Alessi. I would avoid anything that is factory made.

    I hope this helps you. Good luck!

    I think Gary just gave you some very good advice.

    I was thinking of pocket carry too. I think pocket/ankle sounds promising.
