Other than 511 is there any other concealed clothing out there?
I forgot about the belt, it is very important. I wear a Blackhawk instructor.
If I hear Krispy Kreme, I'm looking. Maybe pick a code word that is not so tasty.Instead she says, "Krispy Kreme," which doesn't arrous much suspicion.
Blackhawk and LA Policegear make basically the same shirts. I have a couple of the 5.11 shirts and one from LAPG. The LAPG shirts run small compared to the 5.11.Other than 511 is there any other concealed clothing out there?
The side slits, in my experience, pull apart (they're velcro) whenever I sit down. They're also not placed all that well for where I wear my gun, which is at about 4 o'clock. If I have to draw when I'm wearing one, I'll be pulling it up, not popping the side slits.I know I came to the right place. I'm looking for a shirt to wear in the summer. I'm not looking for a police shirt. I'm looking for options in just wearing a t-shirt and over shirt. I like the 511 shirts with the side slits. Any ideas will help. I'm still new to conceal carry.
The 5.11 belts, IMO, are the best value out there. They're equal in quality to any other, including Wilderness, and don't cost nearly as much.I have a 5.11 TDU belt (http://youtu.be/BKZqGJONH68) which is very comfortable, won't stretch, and supports all the things I carry on my belt (gun, spare mag, light, multi-tool, cell phone). Your regular shirts will probably work just fine if you aren't too tall. I find the most likely time for my gun to become exposed is when I lift my arms over my head or when I bend over to pick something up. That's why I prefer to buy shirts in tall sizes when I can.
I also have modifed by normal behavior to accomodate the guns concealment. For instance, I no longer bend my back to lift things. Instead, I bend at the knee to ensure the gun stays covered. I also pay attention to my concealment garment when I'm sitting in public. It's not unusual for your shirt to ride up a bit when you sit in a booth at a restaurant. It's a good idea to check your clothes quickly (but discreetly) when you get out of your car or a seat in public. Plus, my wife has a code word for me if she happens to notice that my gun is visable. Her saying, "I can see your gun," in a public place could cause some problems. Instead she says, "Krispy Kreme," which doesn't arrous much suspicion.
