    But at least you speak sentences and not pictures:)

    I believe, concealment is not a problem, the real problem is over thinking the problem. I have used the shirt thing for years. How I hide it just a simple cover up as shown here.

    In retirement I've learned to dress down when just bummin' around our small town as that previous photograph that I posted shows. I generally dress up more often than not though. I'll confess that I'm as prim and old-fashioned about dress as I am about choice of armament.

    Last winter, modeling a new holster for the CZ 75 BD.





    I really prefer outside-the-waistband carry beneath a covering garment, one that doesn't look like a concealed carry rig.


    Here's IWB wear though with a four-inch K-Frame Smith & Wesson and suit trousers sized to accept it. The main thing is, while I don't prefer pocket carry ... I just don't want to be seen to be carrying.

    I'm not interested in hearing about why the .32 isn't a good cartridge, or why Kel tec sucks. So please, if that's what you're going to post, just move along...

    If I did like you, I would have said, "I'm not interested in negativity toward my attire, so please if that's what you're going to do please move along"
    The mods moderated you accordingly in that thread, so thereís that. Thereís nothing presumptuous about establishing the parameters of a discussion ahead of time.

    I also didnít say anything negative about untucked carry itself. It has its place. Been carrying that way today myself. Itís your presumption that people can carry that way...or wish to...all the time.

    Whatever, my patience grows increasingly thin. Enjoy your retirement. See the first quote in my signature. Off to the ignore list you go. Ciao baby.

    Carry a sidearm always. Be able to put shots into the torso and then head, if needed. The rest is much less important.

    Yep. I too prefer a more dressier style of clothing, because of the way I was raised. Plus, the wife and I enjoy social outings that require a higher level of dress.

    I dont think its a negative at all. I believe itís a shame our standards are falling.

    Lookin good you two. "Every girls crazy bout a sharp dressed man" is still true. I live in cowboy country so nice fittin jeans, boots and a tucked-in button up shirt is the normal attire with a step up for a night on the town or a nice dinner with my wife. I can still carry a 6 shot 357 revolver under a nice fitting western cut wool or leather vest in a high rise pancake but, in the heat when the vest is too warm the gun gets small. Just the way it is. Dressing around a gun is one thing, living my whole life around it is another.

    I don't wear cargo shorts and have never had a hard time concealing my 1911. A good belt and a good holster make all the difference in the world. Just last week, I had a day of running errands. I had on shorts and a white t-shirt and had my 1911 in an IWB holster and it concealed well.

    A man, without force, is without the essential dignity of humanity. Human nature is so constituted, that it cannot honor a helpless man, although it can pity him; and even this it cannot do long, if the signs of power do not arise.

    Once again I think itís just concrete thinking that traps or retards the ability to see and think beyond the personal sphere.

    I do understand, I get it. (Words this time rather than pics. ) You do things your way. So do I.
    I do not attend social functions that preclude casual attire.
    When we go out to eat we go to restaurants with dog friendly outdoor patio, that is a social outing for us.
    Perhaps it is you that is trapped into concrete thinking if you can't fathom a person that prefers activities where casual attire is the norm.
    I know some people go to the opera, theater, formal dinners, ect... where casual attire is inappropriate, that's not my thing.
    Our most recent "nice" lunch out, nobody cares about my sloven untucked shirt where dogs are welcome.

    The restaurants you pictured look very nice, but I/we prefer a casual outdoor patio where I/we can take the dog.
    You do understand right, since you supposedly are not trapped by concrete thinking.
