    Right. I can see a southern Florida resident wanting to wear extra layers.

    I never said anything about "extra" layers.

    Simply Rugged makes pancake holsters for chest rigs, but all I've ever seen were for larger handguns than an LCP. Here is a link to the website, you might get some ideas from it.

    Seems like I am ahead of my time again. I figured out in 1973 that the ideal vehicle for my family would be a crew cab truck. Enough room inside for a family and the bed for hauling. Very few people had them as private vehicles. I had few choices of what was available. When we contacted Ford they didn't think they would make good family vehicles. Everywhere we went people wanted to buy the crew cab truck off of us. I am sure that somebody will see how handy it is to be able to reach inside a jacket and access a small concealed hand gun. Until then I might have the only one around. I intend to rig one up or have one made to order.

    Guys it ain't that hard to do. You can get most of what you need at Hobby Lobby and you have the satisfaction of doing it your way. For instance I intend to fasten the nylon harness to a flat piece of leather and then use industrial strength velcrow to stick my holster to the leather. That way I can cant the holster any direction that suits me. I might even take a picture when I'm done.

    Found out that I am not the first person who thought this was a handy way to carry. It is called a Doc Holliday rig.

    Not chest carry, but that's the best I can offer....
    I have used a Recluse holster for my Kahr CM9 for years and it looks like a wallet in my pocket. I would imagine that the LCP II would carry even easier.

    I would also check out www.pistolwear.com which has several options that you might like including the Trump Card Subcompact Concealment Holster:

    I have one that is pretty comfortable.

    I used to hunt deer with my .44 magnum Ruger Super Redhawk and scope. I found a cheap but very effective cross-chest carry rig which held my revolver and scope at about a 30 deg angle front and center. Best of all, I wore it under my jacket, so it kept the optics warm. The only downside is I had to unzip my jacket to get to it.

    Not really a problem in a firefight, but in the quiet woods...

    Let me think about that...JK; no.

    In case anybody wondered what happened to the chest carry rig. I found out that it conceals better if it is positioned a little lower and to the left than what I had in mind. I did velcrow the holster to the leather platform and canted the holster to where it works best for me. The LCP tended to lean away from my body at the top so I installed a narrow leather strap across it that holds the gun tighter to my body. It works for me with a loose shirt with one button open and I can draw the LCP very neatly. I ordered an Isreali Security Jacket Shabak for concealing in hot weather and I will probably get an insulated jacket for concealing during cooler weather.
