    wow im smart

    donno why i didnt think of this earlier...
    I'm 5'9 115 lb female and carry (or will be carrying once i get my cpl) a kimber aegis (3" 1911) about 5 oclock IWB.
    I can conceal it fine with some kind of loose unbuttoned shirt thing or a jacket of course but i noticed that just a tshirt wont quite do it if i need to bend down for whatever reason (although is fine if im just upright walking around). Well I just noticed how nicely my "purse" bag thing covers it up! (over the shoulder type) . i can bend over completely with zero probs and get to my purse when standing up without it interfering.

    There's just nothing like experience to figure out easier ways of doing things. Goody for you.

    That sounds like a good fix ... ''camoflage''. I guess about anything shoulder carried can well be potentially used to add an extra 'layer' of cover.

    Nice solution and good to come up with it before actual carry when the permit arrives..

    Food for thought. Will the bag or purse strap get in the way of a natural draw? Will it hinder aiming (hanging off your arm)?
    would a small backpack style purse work as equally effective camouflage?

    smart thinking. ill defiantly have to practice with it. i can still get to my gun just as fast but im not sure about how it hanging off my arm will effect me. i may have to practice drawing from through the loop (so that the bag falls off my shoulder when i draw)
    a full size backpack works great as camouflage and does not slow anything down. a purse size backpack wouldnt hide anything where i keep it.

    I know exactly what you mean. Its rare I don't leave the house without my messenger bag over my shoulder, it covers up any printing that my IWB J-frame might have.

    NO WAY! I don't care how well it works... I'm NOT carrying a purse!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    If it's a Paratrooper bag w/ skull & shoulder strap, it's NOT a purse.
