Here's the approach I've taken...
My pistol is normally worn at my hip in a holster on a belt. When I'm wearing sweatpants, I will wear my belt, not on my hip, but up higher on my waist, right where it's the narrowest. Now, I have to cinch my belt tighter, of course (if you can't do it tight enough with your existing belt you could always get a slightly smaller one). So, what I end up with is the pistol secured in its holster under my t-shirt or sweatshirt, and its profile is minimized. And, if necessary, I tuck the bottom portion of the holster in the sweatpants to ensure it's concealed. High and tight, that's the key.
I know, I'm a sinner. I haven't owned a gun for some time now(bills,$$$$). I did finally come up with the $225 I owed(it's been a year) on my Caspian custom singlestack .45, but I'm waiting for it to get hard chromed. I'm real tempted to go to a show and put a 590A1 on a card today.Originally posted by Paladin:
Wally--You don't own a gun???
Hip Grips are great. Makes it very hard to have an excuse for not having a gun. I have been using mine for many years. The only problem I ever had with it was when I was on crutches and fell down in The Home Depot. The gun came out of my waistband and slipped into my pants. A cop was right there and tried to help me up but I had to fish around in my pants to get my gun so it wouldn't slide out of my pants. :-( I'm sure he wondered what I was doing but I just said I needed a minute to regain my composure. Then I got up and was on my way.Originally posted by Danomite 45:
The hipgrip is a grip with a clip on it to be able to slide into your waistband. Works great. It keeps the gun close to the body so it doesn't have a chance to move around.
