LOL. I’m in Jacksonville. We don’t dress like NJ mobsters on vacation up here!

I threw out all of my Levi’s jeans and ordered all dickies carpenter jeans. The Dickie’s have a back pocket that is the perfect size for my Taurus 740 Slim it is deep enough to be concealed and on the right leg the small pocket holds my knife and there is a deeper pocket right behind it which will hold my Surefire 6PX Pro or an ASP. The last time I ordered from Dickie’s direct them they told me all of their jeans are made in the USA.

I can imagine Bloomboob's reaction. The concealed carry fashion story was on the NY Times' frontpage!

I carry a S&W hammerless 38 special in a galco pocket holster inside my Dickies comfort waist trousers. It’s invisible.


I have the same. Love it.

If you don’t have to get up and go to work in the morning then comfort is the first consideration.

An Hawaiian shirt doesn’t have to hurt your eyes and you don’t have to tuck it in. Look for a nice one at Tori Richards. Khakis are fine if its formal. I’d go with Reef sandals. Nobody mistakes me for a tourist.

Oh and no matching tie. We don’ need not steeenking ties. Too hot down here. ;-)

My hammerless is Sturm Ruger and I told my ‘pal’ to put on my list of ‘shoot me on site’ (if I wear a backpack, luggage (or dog) strapped to roof of SUV etc) if he ever sees me in a fanny pack.

He replied....where else would you carry your 38 spec

Almost sounds good, but I guess it does beat a ‘man purse’

Nothing says “concealed carry” like one of those vests. Might as well open carry at that point.

*** PLEASE LOG IN --- Ummm, no thanks. ***

I know how you feel but believe or not it is harmless and it's free.

I created a NYT account yeeeeeeears ago in the real early days of the WWW and not once have I ever received anything from them except the original email to confirm 'you are you' (even if I got that?). No spam, no ads, no begging for subscriptions, nothing.

And since the NYT does have most of the leftist propaganda we need to see in order to mock, reading the entire article for 'hidden gems' is sort of important.

So go ahead, it is painless (and FREE), honest.

....but I like something beefier for trips to the Obamazones.

Yeah, a "technical" -- an F-350 dualie with a twin ZU-23 AA gun mounted on the bed, with a crew of three (w/ sidearms) and a "shotgun guard" carrying an RPD MG and sidearm. And an AKM on the dash for the driver.

Something like that?

In Chicago, Obama's home town, you're under-gunned... Holder's People are killing their own children, now. Mogadishu is safer, but it has better press coverage.

Thunder Runs on the South Side should include an Mbombe armoured car, and an M-1 Abrams as escort. Then you can go and pick up your laundry.

Russians don't have great trucks.

But they are "Guns R Us" .... which you need to take to a gunsmith and have polished up a bit. And made 922(r) compliant, so Thuggy of the ATF can't take it away from you. Takes a couple hundred bucks' worth of parts and bench time.

And you might as well, since you're in there, get an EOS sight for it and some rails.

AIWB (appendix inside the waist band) solves the problem. The barrel of the gun holstered fits in the crease between the groin and leg; offers a fast a draw and discretion. Usually have to be a size larger shirt, and may have to buy bit larger shorts, pants. Also, a strong thick wide tactical belt is crucial.

Flowing Hawaiian style shirts offer even more multiple carry options which won’t print. 2 pistols AIWB, dual magazine pouch just behind hip bone, a fixed blade inside or outside belt, blackjack in front pocket, folding blade in rear pocket, etc.

Carrying only a .38 snubbie or small mouse guns is passe in my opinion for these modern times, but at least it’s something. I’ll take a little discomfort for security in the face of multiple attackers, etc, and that means a few quality military tested handguns options or secondary backup piece, extra magazines, in addition to blades, which offer silent treatment and are often overlooked for their paleolithic savagery.

LOVE IT!

I can think of situations where a knife would be the weapon of choice due to the stealthiness of it. Could do some real damage to a flash mob.
