No playing hide the gun in public bathrooms. And I dont think there as hard to conceal as most say. A light jacket or such works best but I normally just wear it under any type of button down shirt. I do get the shirts about a size larger and with snaps rather than buttons though.
    Sounds workable however you will still have quite a delay from having to in-conceal in this way.

    One-thousand-one ... and your shirt is ripped open by the snaps and your hand is on your gun.

    By then I can have drawn already from the 3 oclock IWB belt holster configuration.

    So while it is true that shoulder holsters ARE comfortable and DO accommodate larger handguns (pistols & revolvers), they take longer to draw from concealment.

    This is precisely what I noticed at the bar when the other guy tried to pick a fight with me.

    So for high risk environments, I would stick with the IWB 3 oclock belt holster configuration.

    Whereas for very low risk environments, a concealed shoulder holster is just fine.

    Bars and pubs and poker games and downtown and out in the woods can turn into The Wild West anytime.

    That's because instead of wild Indians and cattle rustlers and horse thieves we today have psychopaths and sociopaths and crime and dope traffic.

    And crime can happen to you anytime anywhere.

    So you need to be prepared against crime 24/7/365.

  5. I just ordered one of the cell phone looking holsters from http://www.sneakypeteholsters.com/ for my Kahr PM9 - Cool!
    No printing possible, and much more accessible than a pocket holster! :)

    Make sure you practice drawing from it. The holster covers up the lower part of the firearm's grip, which means your hand will not get a full grip on the firearm before removing it from the holster. A poor draw procedure executed hastily is a recipe for shooting yourself in the foot. At 1:15, this guy draws his weapon with the finger on the trigger while pointing it at his hip and leg:



    I personally consider the Sneaky Pete holster a recipe for disaster and would never carry it.

    I believe that IWB at 3 or 9 oclock is the best bet.

    Then you also do not need to worry about disguising it.
