    ok, need to conceal a Beretta 92

    I have carried a Beretta 21A for years, it is light and easy to conceal, but a little light on the power.
    So I am considering carrying my Beretta 92. So how do you go about concealing this weapon.
    My normal attire is jeans, t-shirts, so forth. During summer shorts, t-shirt.

    Options?

    I usually carry a Glock (22 or 27) but have considered a Beretta. If I were to go with the Beretta, I would likely pick up another MTAC since it has worked well for me and the Glocks.

    Be sure to get a good, stiff gun belt too. It makes all the difference in the world!

    I don't carry mine often but it conceals well enough under a cover shirt with my Galco Combat Master. I also have a C-Tac for this gun but it's just not comfortable carrying it IWB. The Combat Master snugs up to the body and allows this gun to be concealed well. My Beretta is the Brigadier. Not my first choice for concealed carry but certainly a pleasure to shoot.

    That MTAC is a very nice rig. I like my HBE COM III very much for my Glock 23. I also think Jimmy C4 has a TT OWB and IWB for his 92. It looked to work very well for him as well.

    Any good IWB rig should work pretty well, I just made one up for my father in law the other day and really dimensionally it's very similar to a 1911 as far as holster pattern is concerned. When I tested it for him I found the grip of course was thicker but otherwise it carried about like a normal government 1911 would for me. I would say stick with a holster with two fairly wide attachment points because it's a full frame it will distribute the weight much better than a single point. Shouldn't be too tough to find something that will work well.

    Large, heavy gun...
    Tight OWB holster with lots of forward cant will help...anything can be concealed if you work at it.

    UPDATE- I bought a P3AT this morning as a carry gun. So I will have the P3AT when I need full concealment, and the 92 when I don't.

    My wife and my P3AT is a very good shooter and dependable.

    Being able to conceal and having the power to weight and size ratio is very impressive to us.

    Good CD ammo makes the 380 a viable choice.

    I have never owned a 92 but I did carry a CZ75 for a while IWB in a Tucker Texas Heritage very successfully. I also carried it OWB in a Tucker HF-1.

    Yep, I like the high ride pancake that Tim at TT Gunleather made up for me!

    Especially for a high riding holster, you better have a strong belt...Tim set me up well in the belt department as well.

    And, yea...do the shark trim!

    I use the same holster for my Beretta 92. I love the fact I can tuck my shirt in or leave it out. I go to places were I have to wear shirt and tie and an untucked shirt is not an option and looks sloppy.

    Nothing beats custom leather -- but if you aren't used to concealing that size -- you may want to try something less expensive first to see how it feels before committing to a custom style.

    For less than $50 (if you shop around) the Safariland 568 is a strong, well-fitting holster for the 92 which allows you to readjust the cant and positioning from day to day until it feels right for hours at a time. Then when you know where and how the 92 fits you well, you can order custom leather with the same cant and slots (or straps). The 568 becomes a backup holster for the day after you get drenched.

    There are less expensive trial holster options, but I've seen a Beretta 96 flop around like a mad catfish in one of these.

    IWB 'might' be rather uncomfortable. I can do it but I have a few pair of britches that are a little bigger than I usually wear to 'help' with that.

    A quality higher riding pancake style holster paired with a 'true' gunbelt would greatly enhance the concealability of a 92F. For me, any holster that keeps that sidearms butt tight into the body would be perfect.

    The 92 is a good gun and worthy of good 'ride'.

    I can carry my 92 in an Eagle Defender from K&D. I just cover with a button shirt. There is a pic of it on here somewhere? I'm 5'7" and weigh 150 lbs....
