Is there any site that displays what these holsters look like in use?

    I'm still holding off on my CC until I familiarize myself with the state laws (I have a book summarizing all of FL gun laws in the mail right now)....but I'd still like to get started on wardrobe adjustments to handle CC without flashing or uneccessary printing.

    For what it's worth, I'm clueless as far as how to CC, thus the possibly very noob-ish questions.


    I've looked at many options....deep conceal is out since I have a rather large gut on me, ankle is out due to the size of the pistol, in-pocket is doable only with my carpenter jeans...so I'd rather not. Waistband has me worried about flashing, considering how panic-happy some people are when they see a handgun.

    So, is there any good sites that explain these details and possibly have some demonstrations of how one would conceal under a variety of dress levels without hanging shirts?

    I've been looking over the photos in that thread and noticed that everyone is wearing their pants/jeans at waist level.

    Thanks to the way I'm proportioned, I wear my pants/jeans at the hip, since waist wear would just slide down (belly folds over, within a year, i should be thin enough, but until then...)...so is there any creative solutions for that, or do I just take the obvious answer and wear longer shirts?

    The other thing that I noticed was that only a few posts had any info on what was used to CC in many of those posts...this was where I was going. It seems that the information online is pretty fragmented at times in regards to this subject....well besides the "pager pal sucks" threads I keep finding :)

    I do know that Florida has only concealed carry and you can get hassled for even "printing".

    I suggest something like a Comp-Tac MTAC and longer shirts. The folks I know that CC all the time swear these are about the best holsters for the job...

    Yep, that's my concern....printing. My intended CC pistol is about the size of a kel-tec P11, so it's small, but it's not a mouse gun or anything...so it's going to be interesting trying to find hiding places for it.

    I just looked at the Comp-Tac site...that MTAC is an impressive looking holster. I'm definately considering them due to the sheer configuration options their holsters provide.

    I'm definately starting to think I have to worry more about clothing fit than anything....get looser shirts for starters.
