    Lost my right leg as results of Vietnam. I had a C-leg prosthetic and can get around quite a bit, but range is cut short by asthma (Agent Orange) and bad back (1st helicopter crash). I use a Rascal electric 4-wheeled scooter to get around malls and such and have been tempted to mount a mg on the front of it. Mall folks can get quite rude. When walking I sometimes use a nice cane given to me by a friend in MOPH. I am thinking the Aloha shirt is a really good idea with belted shorts. Ya'll have come up with some really good ideas although I had to look up the initials for some of them. Thanks much.

About your disability, are you able to walk or are you in a wheel-chair, even occasionally? If/when ambulatory, do you use an aid such as a cane or crutch? If you use an aid, is it used with your strong hand or support hand? Lots of help available in this forum...just need a little more info on your situation.

    I can draw smoothly and the holster stays put.
    The Big Mouth option makes it easier to re-holster.
    I'm very impressed with it.
    So, from just this thread I have found the shirts I need (Ordered 4 of them) and another holster I need (ordered the Big Mouth). That is why I love this site.

    I am a fan of the Miami classic holster under a Columbia Bonehead fishing shirt. The holster itself is interchangeable along with 2 mag pouches on the other side.

  5. Shoulder rig with an undershirt and button up over it. My step dad is 6 foot 300ibs and that's how he carries his Sig 239

    I am 69 and pushing 70 hard. I am also a little overweight (aren't we all?). I pocket carry about 99% of the time as I personally don't like IWB or OWB carry. I carry a 9mm Taurus 709 in my left front pocket loaded with Hornady Critical Defense FTX rounds. In my right front pocket I carry my TCP/738 loaded with .380 Hornady Critical Defense FTX rounds.

    I salute you, ScoutGunner, and all other vets at this site, for your sacrifices in Vietnam (and elsewhere). My son-in-law's dad suffers from effects of A.O. and makes frequent trips to the VA hospital here in ME. Sounds like you've got your solution to your carry issue. This thread got me thinking. I'm soon to be 55 and feel like I gain weight every day. If I get a pair of the heaviest, longest barrel .45s I can find and carry them at all times, it's sure to have some workout value, eh?
