I have seen many styles of CC. From many holsters to all manner of clothing. Lanyards, & Belly Bands, Thunder Wear, & CC undershirts & so on. Magills has a bunch of coats, & vest to name a few. I have heard of pants that are designed to hold CCW's. I see the prices, & just feel lost as to what to get without spending a small fortune.
I have gotten kind of chunky since I quite running marathons, although I do plan to remedy that soon, so I want something that wont be in my waiste line, & with the Texas heat most of the year, I want something that will work without a lot of layers of clothing. So then,what is your favorite type of CC clothing?
If your a heavy weight what works really good for you?

My main primary carry gun, a compact 10+1 9mm, is carried in a DeSantis Cozy Partner IWB holster. My back up, a Kel-Tec P32 is carried in a Uncle Mike's pocket holster. My cold weather, heavy coat and gloves gun is a Taurus PT92, carried in a Galco SOB holster.

Glock 21 in a paddle holster, I wear somewhat loose clothes and a 44R trenchcoat.

Glock 27 in either a leather holster, or a MilTec IWB in the small of my back. Either way, ready for response!

I carry usually in a front mounted IWB Uncle Mike's holster with the extra clip pouch. My spare tire does a good job hiding a Glock 17 or a PPK. I have tried the back carry and it prints too well in the summer. Since it is cooler now, I also can carry my PPK in the interior gun pocket of my flight jacket. When carrying it in the groin area, I am usually wearing BDU pants or loose jeans.

What your method of CC?

Depends, there are times I use a Galco shoulder rig, sometimes a SOB rig, a Horeshoe Leather belt holster or a Royal Robbins 511 vest. As to being a heavy weight, I 'claim' 921 pounds but, that was before my diet.[:D]

Got a Royal Robbins 511 Tac. vest a few days ago and used it today for really the first time. I was thoroughly impressed. My .380 Sig looked lost in the big inside CC pocket...guess I need a gun to fit the vest (new excuse). I bought the XL size (I'm 6-1, 220) and it's a little on the roomy side. The Large might have been a better choice for me. Quality of the vest is top notch and there's tons of pockets. Lightfighter and Brigade Quartermaster both have 'em as I recall.

I pack a BHP in a Fobus belt holster, FBI style. I usually just wear a shirt with the tail out. I am sure that it prints, but only another CCW would know its a P35 and not some tools. Ops

The aloha style shirt is key to looking good while carrying concealed. It's properly worn untucked, so you don't look like a slob, and there are a lot of different varieties of them out there, like bowling shirts, etc, not just ugly assed flowers and hula girls. Get yourself a quality IWB holster like a Sparks' Versa-Max II and an aloha shirt, and you're in there like swimwear.
