Found the perfect concealment garment...

IMHO anyway.

There is always talk on these pages about "dead give-a-way" clothing.

I was in Planet Houston this week. We don't have a Kohl's in Lubbock so we went shopping. Found a Dockers Golf vest. Looks like a windbreaker without sleeves. The one I picked out is bone or off white with a black stripe from the arm hole to the base of the vest that's about 6 inches wide. The vest doesn't scream gun it screams golf and the stripe breaks up the lines of the gun when it prints.

It has a mesh liner and is water resistant. Was plenty confortable while in downtown Spring shopping early afternoon. Would have been even more comfortable if I'd worn a t-shirt instead of a heavier polo shirt. Only sought refuge in the shade a few times.

Not bad for $32.00.

Now when in public the sheople will think I'm carrying a concealed golf ball or two.

:evil:

Looks good! :)

I now swear tho by this Smith and Alexander vest ..... lightweight denim. Works a treat for me when biking. Not much extra re stayin cool but - EXCELLENT for cover and concealment.

Bought another recently - it is so valuable. Many say wind blowing is a prob .. no way .. just keep elbow and arm against it to prevent a blow up! Pricing similar to the golf vest.

Hey P95, got a web sight for that vest? I would hate to be caught looking like a golfer in public!

Ruger and S&W have "branded" golf apparel. I prefer the pullover style. I wear a Starter mesh athletic wear shirt under mine.

I have a similar one I found one sale at Dillard's in the golf wear section. Mine says Greg Norman on the inside, and I was never able to find any web information for folks. I think if you go to a golf shop you can probably find something similar.

It is ideal and perfect until the temperature reaches 90, and then anyone wearing a vest is going to be pretty conspicuous, not to mention in danger of heat prostration.

I like that vest P12. It doesn't yell "shoot me" quite as loud as some of the other vest I have seen. I will have to swing by Kohls here and see if I can find one. Wouldn't our wives be pleased to know we are getting fashion advice from the guys at THR.

Here's what I found for casual/business wear. It's 100% cotton, and looks and feels great. The (hidden) outside pocket is great for my 442 pocket carry because it puts a 2nd layer of cloth (a bit stiffer too) between the gun and the outside world - no printing, no hanging-out. The inside pockets are also useful for carry, but you have to come to your own arrangement.

I've found that the left inside breast pocket (behind the credit-card size pockets) works nicely for my BHP - but in a reversed position because of the full-size grip. I have to pull the coat open wide to draw correctly (kind of like clearing a shirt for a strong-side draw, except clearing the coat actually reverses the gun position for a correct grip). If I had a shorter grip I might be able to carry in the correct (shoulder holster) position. I haven't tried it yet with my Colt Compact cause the weather got too hot.

I bought one in blue & liked it so much I bought another in khaki.
