I have applied for a CCW and at this point am not considering carrying every day there are times that I would consider concealed carry. I have a Glock 20 and I realize this is a big gun to conceal especially in warmer weather with lighter clothing. I was just hoping that someone out there is concealing this gun or another gun about the same size and could give some tips. I also have an older Ruger p89 but it is not a whole lot smaller than the Glock and IMO opinion the Glock is a much better weapon. At this point a new gun is really not in the budget but either is buying a whole new wardrobe.Thanks in advance for any tips on how to do this.

I can carry a much larger weapon and conceal it easier in a more varied wardrobe in the appendix position. The Dale Fricke Archangel was originally designed to carry GLOCKs in the AIWB position. Another option, albeit unconventional is the Zac rig also from Dale Fricke. I EDC a G23 in these options and I have to dress from shorts and a T to suits and everything in between.

While your G20 is larger than many EDC choices it is light weight and will still work with a little thought and pre-planning.

For three o'clock iwb, this guy makes a great kydex holster:
Mid-World Gun Leather - home
I use a version of it to carry my S&W 1006, which, while slightly narrower than your 20, is a whole lot heavier.

Thanks for the quick response. I will look at these options but I am leaning towards and IWB that is more in the 3:00-4:00 position if possible.

Try a MIC holster and a rubber grip at 3 o'clock. That's the way I carry most often now with my G20sf however I do have a milt sparks watchsix IWB and a OWB Safariland pancake holster that work great also.

With the right wardrobe you can conceal a wide range of handguns. I have a 511 vest that I use nearly constantly and have even concealed N-Frame Smiths in OWB holsters. Should you consider a light garment such as this you can utilize several holsters, to include paddle holsters from Safariland, Fobus, Galco, etc. The G21 is a great sidearm and like Matthew03 said, a little preplanning will go a long way in allowing you to carry that thumper-of-a-gun just fine.

My son has a Glock 23, Glock 21 & his PD- issued M&P 40. He has no problems concealing any of them in various configurations from OWB to IWB & appendix as the season dictates. Your G20 is a bit bigger than these but not by much. With little thought & clothing choice you shouldn't have a problem. Loose shirts including T shirts in the summer help a lot. I carried a G22 duty gun when working as a private detective, again a little smaller than yours & never had a problem.
