Its easy to hide a full size M9 under a BDU top but I am finding it hard to hide a P226 in a fletch high ride in "normal clothes" any suggestions?

BDUs are always in style when you’ve earned the right to wear them. ;)

I’ve used untucked/unbuttoned Hawaiian shirts to cover my P90 “brick” in either strong side or small of back carry, heavier fabrics work better and the style doesn’t draw attention when the shirt is a size or two too large. Loose fitting, long length coats and vests are great too.

I have body apparently not meant for concealing. My 32 waist pants still get sinched dawn a bit my gun inside the belt. If you think I a skinny little freak I'm 5'11" 185.

While I have earned the right to wear BDUs that draws attention, and I hate cammo. I hate cammo with a passion. I can wear my old army trench coat I could hide almost anything under that :wink:

Hmmm. I'm 6'2" and 193 lbs. I find that with a loose, untucked shirt, I could conceal even the largest framed guns without much trouble. Even a full-sized 1911. In fact, those are pretty comfortable because they're so darn thin.

I just got a great suggestion on another forum. The black fleece vest fits in well here. Unlike the fisherman/safari/photographer vests that scream I'M PACKING HEAT.

The only time I've been made was when my nice long fleece vest clung to, and formed itself perfectly around, the shape of my P90 that I was wearing OWB.

I normally carried something more discrete at that job, but that Saturday I was working by myself and receiving a COD delivery of electronics worth over $25K, the big brown truck driver just asked me what type of gun it was. This was about 8-9 years ago.

Sounds interesting. Got a picture? That's something I'd be willing to entertain for concealing. Is it akin to a shoulder rig?
No not like a shoulder rig which I cant hide all that well either. Worked great in Iraq and I can whole heartedly endorse Falco holsters as a good way to try a quality leather shoulder holster without breaking the bank. Not as good as the ones that cost 2-3x as much but should last 2-3 years of carry.

Just the type of vest popular with the ski crowd, nothing more than a nice fall/winter garment to conceal.



I'd try for a longer cut for our purposes though. :D

With this time of year, I just wear a coat and I'm set. I gnerally carry a full sized Springfield 1911 and no one has ever said anything. During the summer, I just untuck my shirts... Took me a while sine I'm used to having my shirt tucked in all the time (Military and LEO) but it seems to work well now.
