I'm more interested, though, in what techniques people have used to conceal their larger guns - 8-inch-long, maybe hi-cap monsters. Not really GIANTS, but large guns by carry standards. And yeah, I know there are infinite possibilities for body shape/size, gun size, cant options, etc. If there are certain tricks people found worthy, I'd like to hear 'em.
So there's your 8" gun and hi cap "Monster".
I generally carry in an IWB with moderate cant which lines the gun up with my body to keep it from sticking out, my holster rides at either 3 o'clock or just behind the hip at about 4-4:30.
I also use a cover garment to hid the rig. Given the right holster and the right clothing, I can hide darn near anything.
People can help you better if they know 1) what firearm 2) what size, sub compact, compact or full 3) what body type( short, avg. tall - small, med, large)
This is info is needed. I can give advice for a GP 100 6" barrel for a 6' 3" 240 Lb. man. But if you need info on a 5' 3" 96 Lb. person who want's to carry a BERSA 380 The info would be less than useless.
Please help the people on the fourm help you.
It's not the bow or the arrow It's the NDN
Inside Waist Band holster style is generally going to conceal the best. Where will depend on your body type and comfort. I would recomend a holster that has an adjustable cant and height such as the CrossBreed SuperTuck. You can then fine tune it to what works best for you.
