    CCW Clothing

    I am fairly new to USA Carry and wanted to ask about concealed clothing especially pants (long and short). Have seen some on the web but not sure what works. I am looking for both comfort and concealment. As I have gotten older the love handles have grown just a tad and am trying to find out if someone has good information on fit. I will be carrying a Glock 40 cal and also looking at a subcompact. Thanks for any info that will help.

    Try the Concealed Carry and Handgun Gear and the Sponsor Announcements boards on this site! Usually some pretty good links in these and a great place to start...

    CCW - choosing what to wear

    I have been lucky in that I have not had to buy any "CCW clothes." I have purchased shirts that are more loose than what I used to wear, but that is pretty much the only concession I have had to make with my wardrobe to conceal a weapon every day.

    Generally speaking, make a fist, and if you can fit your fist into the waistband of your shorts/pants, your gun will also fit.

    Get a GUN BELT so your pants don't sag, and invest in a QUALITY HOLSTER (I have custom holsters from UBG Holsters, but I have heard nothing but GOOD about Crossbreed holsters for concealment).

    Personally, I think the easiest place to hide the gun is just behind the hip, so that the grip hides in the curve of the spine. If you reach and bend a lot during the day, you may print a lot with the gun behind the hip--try appendix carry if that is the case.

    Shirts should be more loose than fitted, and patterns hide the gun better than solids (generally speaking). For myself, I wear loose T-shirts and polo shirts in either solid white or solid black and people have been non-the-wiser.

    Best of luck in finding a combination that works for you.

    I carry daily either the Glock 27 or a full size Colt 1911. I have not had to change the size of my pants at all. Using the Crossbreed supertuck and a good gunbelt does the trick. The belt is only let out one notch to accomadate the IWB holster. Yes with age I also have some love handles but nothing to bad. LOL

    All I did was buy a size large in my jeans and got a different style shirt. I bought every color of the izod polos and they cover great. They are a little longer in the back and drape very well. Nothing fancy and in the news paper I find 15%-25% off coupons at JCpenny so thats a plus.

    I thought the above was normal... Anyway, I've been looking for a CCW comunication wrist-watch to keep in touch with Control, in our fight against Chaos. Any ideas?

    I carry two different ways. I use an IWB holster ( just happens to be Don Hume )I put my holster between my belt and pants.

    I also have a kangaroocarry holster and it is a good working holster. I use an tee shirt and a button-up cowboy shirt over the top of my Tee shirt when I want to dress up for dinners out.

    I am a older person of 69 years. I am not thin. I wear long tailed tee shirts for outing to places like the markets etc.

    I get strange looks from the wanna be gang bangers, but never a word is said. I like my comfort, and security.

    I get my long tailed shirts from Champs a sporting good type of clothing place.

    I am the type of person that doesn't care what others think of when I dress up.

    My protection is my goal. No one has ever figured out that I carry. I even challenged a sherriff that is my friend to try to see my firearm ( Glock 21 ) he said I wasn't carrying.

    Be comfortable, and not to worry about others making you. They won't.

    dont buy into the ccw clothing, all i did was buy a good holster (crossbreed supertuck) and a size bigger in shirts and pants/shorts. i wear cargo shorts anyways so the extra pockets come in handy, but dont go and blow a bunch of $$$ on ccw clothing when u dont need to.
