    Small comment addition - which I realize makes a difference with my own OWB and garment use etc.

    I am somewhat broad in shoulder (not so narrow at the hip these days tho LOL) - and I can see that in the rear view pic - my gun is definitely in an area which a hanging garment will easily over-ride.

    Thus - the ''fall'' of shirt or whatever - does mean that from shoulder, it hangs away from my mid section - more perhaps than for folks more ''generous'' - or even ''pear shaped".

    Thus I will concede, your body shape is gonna make quite some difference - meaning that IWB can indeed perhaps be best route for some.

    You guys are awfull, just awfull.
    Chris, I like to wear the carpenters jeans, and I keep my concealed banana in my right leg pocket(the pocket you'd keep a sheetrock knike in or a pair of pliers).
    Still working on getting a holster for my XSE, just christmas has busted my bank, and I can't seem to find what I want at a price I am happy with.

    Bud, I'm 5'10 1/2" 180#, the pics make me look taller I guess.

    I was speculating that he shaved for the pix.

    Bud, seeing as you asked re concealment pics, and Bruce kindly showed some - I have just taken these real quick. The detritis to rear is loading stuff!

    I also noticed I had on one of my oldest pairs of jeans too - and I had to use the cable remote, in case you wonder what is in my left hand!

    The vest (Smith & Alexander) is summer use mostly tho am just soon off 10 pin bowling and will wear it there as I get hot. This one is getting ''tired'' and will soon be replaced - the front right pocket shows wear from holding the NAA mini too. So - forgive the rather shabby look - bit I think you'll agree it does the job.

    The shirt - well - it's generous sized and so basically I could conceal my darned BFR under there if riding high enough LOL! I hope these help show, for me anyways - OWB presents zero problems

    I do occasionally carry under just a T-shirt but find it needs to be very significantly large! Main problem is gun butt - mag is hard to prevent printing a bit to rear. That said - when walking about it ain't too bad.

    How much did the Glock show up? Or was the T-shirt a tent!? I find those do best
