Carrying a concealed weapon is a serious responsibility, and it requires a certain level of commitment to ensure that you are doing it safely and responsibly. One of the most important aspects of this is wearing the right type of clothing. Wearing concealed carry attire can be a great way to keep your weapon hidden while still looking stylish. However, there are some drawbacks to consider before you make the switch. One of the drawbacks of wearing a hidden undershirt is having access to the gun when you need it.
If you're wearing a polo shirt or t-shirt, this usually involves pulling the bottom of the shirt upwards to push your hand and arm underneath and reach the cover pocket. This can be difficult in certain situations, such as when you're in a hurry or if you're in an awkward position. To make this easier, many people opt for an undershirt that has a pocket specifically designed for carrying a concealed weapon. Another potential issue with wearing concealed carry attire is that it can be difficult to find clothing that fits properly. Some styles of concealed carry pants are made with extra space at the waist, but are the same size in all other sizes.
This can make it difficult to find clothing that fits comfortably and securely. Think about the different styles of dress you may be used to wearing on a daily basis, and then try to determine how you will adapt to compensate for wearing hidden clothes. Finally, due to the nature of this carrying method, most shooting ranges and concealed carry classes do not allow practicing with live fire from this position. This means that if you want to practice with your concealed weapon, you will need to find another way to do so. On the other hand, there are some advantages to wearing concealed carry attire. Students sometimes tell me that they don't carry their everyday gun (EDC) because they have to wear formal clothes to work or to church.
With the right type of clothing, you can still carry your EDC without anyone knowing. Many manufacturers are manufacturing complete lines of bags and accessory packs designed for the concealed carry market. These bags and packs are designed specifically for carrying a concealed weapon, so they provide extra security and comfort while still looking stylish. Many manufacturers offer hidden carrying belts that are just as stylish as those found in high-end men's clothing. These belts provide extra security and comfort while still looking fashionable. Finally, there are several different methods for carrying a concealed weapon without having to wear special clothing. All of the hidden transportation methods on this list have their pros and cons, and some are more popular than others.
A better option might be to switch to a jacket or vest specifically designed to be worn concealed. With a little diligence, imagination, and reflection, you can adapt your closet so that you can safely and comfortably hide it. A heavier frame can help compensate for a smaller charger and will not alter the concealment in most types of cases (although it will sag deeper if you carry it in your pocket or if you use another method without a cover). Some companies offer hidden carrying pants with integrated covers, eliminating the need for a separate cover.
