After trying several different means of carry (thanks to all for their suggestions) I have finally found a way to carry that does not require too baggy of clothes and does not dictate too much how I move or dress. I decide on Bianchi IWB Professional models (about $45 each).

In these pics I am wearing only a t-shirt and a very thin, well fitting cotton shirt (untucked) and I feel it is concealed enough to pass most any test. It is also comfortable enough to sit with for short periods of time such as while drining or in a diner (I say diner because I can never spell resteraunt...crap...see). I am actually wearing it now as I sit here and type.

I show both my 2" revolver and my Wather PPK set up here. I will hopefully find one for my new Kahr MK40 Elite that is due in on monday.

I am also keeping the belt slides from Don Hume to wear in colder weather where I do not need it to be quite as concealed and would rather have the extra comfort of an OWB holster.

Knuckles,

I know what you mean. I just lost nearly 30lbs in the last 6 months or else I would still not be able to do this method of carry.

Well then, congrats on both the carry method and the weight loss....

I'm going to have to give that a try! ;)

I am a "healthy" guy, and I find that I can conceal my SP 101 in a FIST belt slide under my work polo shirt with absolutly no problem at the 4 o clock position.

Ah there is hope for us 'healthy' folks. Can you tell me what 'FIST belt slide' means? And nice choice on the SP 101, got that one on my wish list...

Oh, wait, no they're not. But I do have a pair of Bianchi IWB Pro holsters, one for my Glock 19, and the other for my Kimber Ultra Eclipse.

I usually carry with the holster in the 4-o'clock position, between the right side belt loop and the back pocket, though, as I've got a bit of a...uh...paunch. Been using them for about three years, and they've held up and worked out well.

:p I must say I love your choice of back drops you picked for your photo shoot!

A lovely oak curio cabinet filled with darling Disney figurines! And there in the middle is Bambi! A interesting study of contrasts!
