    I'm in Texas, so I have to CC or not carry, this is my normal attire, just how am I supposed to comfortably CC in this? Without 'printing'?

    The funny thing is, I posted this same picture to my FaceBook without mentioning anything about the gun on my hip! So far, nobody has even noticed, or at least they haven't mentioned it! (of course they are probably caught up on the fact that I am now beardless...)

    Get your jeans a size or two larger and untuck your shirt.
    Perhaps if you would use a real computer you wouldn't have to apologize for not being able to do so many things on the internet!

    That is true, but also in Texas if I remembering the state correctly, you can shoot robbers in the back as they are fleeing and have no charges pressed. Probably would not happen here in VA.

    They may not allow OC but they sure seem lenient when it comes to right to self defense and protecting property.

    Untucked shirts aren't exactly 'professional'...
    I do have jeans that I can do an IWB and tuck the shirt around it, but even with cant you can still often see either the butt or the top sight poking out. The best I have come up with so far is a shoulder holster under my shirt and on my thicker shirts it works fairly well. (Wrangler pearl snap 'work' shirts generally) (this is Texas afterall, that IS considered 'professional')
    Also, as tall as I am, I would have to buy really REALLY long shirts (finding the regular 'tall' shirts is hard enough!) to cover a gun on my hip.

    The point isn't 'how can I cc' The point IS that it would be much easier to OC and that the whole 'People will be scared to see people wandering around with a gun on their hip...' Which means that this pic on my FB page ought to be scaring people left and right, yet, nobody (other than DK) seems to have even noticed!

    Watch this vid from crossbreed holsters. Blew my mind when he tucked his shirt in and didn't print.

    As I understand it, you can carry an antique 1800s type handgun openly in Texas, right?

    If I lived in Texas, I'd probably carry a repro Colt Walker.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Someone around here carries in a purse. DreQo, I think. He calls it a super tactical purse.

    STP. That way, it's cooler...

    He almost broke somebody's risk for touching his purs....,uh, I mean his STP.

    OC makes some things so much easier...

    Thanks for the holster recommendations, and hopefully some people will find this info helpful, however, as I stated before:

    This thread was posted as a 'tongue in cheek' play against the anti's drivel about how people will be scared to see people walking around with guns on their hips!

    I have a number of anti's that are friends on my FB and they should be 'up in arms' about that picture, yet, noone has said a thing! I am a respected professional Texas Citizen, and I just don't see anyone being 'scared' of me carrying a gun! (except the BGs of course)

    When talking to people (antis and fence sitters) I have often heard them say: "I wouldn't have a problem with YOU (me) carrying, but..."
    So who is to decide? I have a friend who is 'not so popular' (he gets a bit loud and hasn't figured out how to be 'tactful') yet he has a CHL. I often point this out and ask wouldn't they rather know if he is carrying or not?

    In short, I posted this thread to promote OC, not to ask how to CC...
