Packin' Tee

    I was wondering if anyone has tried the Packin' Tee or any other concealment tee shirt. I just received my Packin Tee and am wearing it with a S&W 6906 in the holster.
    So far the only minor issue is that the size seems to run a little small. The XL is a little snug, but I wanted it snug and I am losing weight (well maybe not after today's lunch:)) and think it will be fine.

    I cannot stand any IWB holster I have tried. A simple OWB holster works but I have to have my shirt un-tucked. I do pocket carry but that requires a small gun. The T shirt option seems really good because I can wear it under any shirt.
    Let me know your thoughts.

    I have seen them and personally think it's a great idea. How does it handle the weight of the 6906? Wonder if it could handle anything much larger... The smaller size is meant to keep the pistol closer to your body I believe which keeps it from printing on the outer shirt and holds it in place for a sure fast draw I believe as well. My only issue with them is they seem to be awful costly for holster duty being that one would want to have at least a few unless you do laundry daily.

    I have a home designed version of the Kangaroo sholder holster which wraps around the torso and works similar. So far the T shirt is more comfortable.

    I have been wearing it for about 4 hours so far and it seems to be handling the weight of the 6906 pretty well. I am not sure I would want to go much bigger.

    I agree about the price, but I am married to a seamstress. I bought one to see if she can make me a few to interchange. On good thing is that the holster can be moved from shirt to shirt since it attaches with hook-n-loop pad.

    I got mine on ebay for $33 including shipping.

    My wife wears one every day! It's her favorite method.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Shirt + one accessory = $35.00. I balk at that price for nice polo shirts. I would need $100.00 worth for three days worth of carry and I do laundry once a week.

    So far it doesn't pencil out for me.

    Yea the Kangaroo holster never looked that comfortable to me just those thin straps across the shoulders would be a pain. I usually prefer hip carry IWB or OWB but a should rig such as the tee would be comfortable, handy and comes on and off with ease. At the same time however two shirts could be hot in the summer (which I often will just open carry in summer) but the shirt would be more noticeable to people than hip carry I think when open carry.

    Keep us updated on this.

    As in undershirt? Doesn't work down here unless you dump a water cooler over your head every thirty minutes.
