Concealed Carry Tips...

I know people are often looking for proficent ways to carry concealed, so I thought I'd share what I've found works for me.

My magic ingredient is a cell phone holster. I wear my cell phone in a holster on my strong side about 1-2 inches in front of a IWB holster (I carry a Ruger LC9 at approximately the 4 o' clock position) w/ shirt untucked and bunched over, but tucked behind the cell phone holster. This eliminates printing by lifting the shirt just before the gun while still hanging to cover it. Tucking the shirt behind the cell phone holster also secures it fairly well. I can sit, ride, and bend over without worry. I just occasionally tug my shirt tail to make sure the shirt isn't riding up. This works with t-shirts, polos, button-ups and all. Best of all you don't need to spend big money on an expensive holster. Virtually any small IWB holster will work.

I do not however, tuck my shirt in unless some one has died or is getting married... in which case it's the S&W Bodyguard in the pocket.

What works for you?

Try a cross-draw holster. It rides much higher than the usual belt or IWB holster, so it's out of the way in the car or any sitting position, and riding higher makes it easier to conceal and easier to draw.

I wear a Kimber Ultra Carry in a IWB holster strong side, and a spare mag and a Blackberry on my left. My wife tells me the phone's bulge is much larger than the firearm's! I'm ok with that....

Most normal people will not even notice if you "print". They are not looking that close to peoples wear and or bulges around the waist. I know I don't look that hard at peoples waist line to see if that is a cell phone, gun or if they are just happy. I think we that conceal carry are more consceince or our being than anyone around.

just my .02. I've got where I quit worring about it and don't care. It wasn't worth the worry.
