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.
“..blades, which offer silent treatment and are often overlooked for their paleolithic savagery.”
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.
