Question anybody carry outside the waist? OWB

have a sig p238. i can wear this owb with an alien gear holster. i wear a somewhat loose shirt (not baggy). i do not print. the only way you can tell i have a firearm is if i raise my arms/hands.

i have a glock 19 on the way and i was wondering what holster to get? bravo concealment makes something that is super pancake-like. yes/no?

You're more than likely going through a few holster until you find what you like.

This.

Also are you still planning on OWB for G19?

I carry IWB and sometimes AIWB for my G19 and others from full kydex and hybrid.

I’ve carried a Sig C3 1911 (commander slide on an officer frame) in a Clinger V3 owb and it works fine. As long as your shirt is loose and long, concealment does not seem to be an issue.

I'm not sure what your daily routine involves, but I often raise my arms to get items on a top shelf at the market, lift the hood of my vehicle, etc. In addition, if lifting your arms shows the firearm then it is likely that bending over in certain positions does the same. If it works for you great, but I like to have a generous amount of mobility without my firearm becoming visible.

I carried a 1911 for years in a OWB holster, so it is clearly doable.


However, a loose and long shirt, combined with a little common sense when it comes to movement, makes all of the difference in the world...

My edc is a g17. I am 5’11 and 160 soaking wet. I use the Blackhawk Serpa holster 99% of the time. The other 1 percent is the Alien gear one. The alien gear sits much higher on my hip and only use that where wearing a shirt that I usually wear to conceal would not work for where I am.
I usually wear T-shirts or button down shirts in L or XL and that doesn’t seem to look out of the ordinary most of the time , except 1% of the time.

Making a living wearing scrubs as well. I use George AIWB appendix rig from JMcustom kydex. ccw CZ P07 /P10c with 15 plus 1" works great for that quick stop to shop etc on the way to & from work.

(15 plus 1 cos its TX)

P238? You can put that in a little pocket holster or a small, simple IWB

Only when I go hiking, I carry it outside the wasteband as the IWB holster is just not comfortable for hiking, going up steep grade, climbing over tree trunks etc, But for normal everyday carry it is super comfortable, even more than my OWB holster.

I have the Bravo Concealment holster too with the pancake wing attachments. They are fairly close to the body. But In CA, I’d probably do it under a untucked shirt and jacket. In free states, I don’t mind the print or bulge.

Pancake holsters under shirt, jacket, sport coat, suit jacket. Variety of guns:

Kimber Micro 9
Kimber Ultra Carry
Kimber Pro Carry
Sig P229
Canik TP9 SC

I can go up to 4" barrels most of the time, with a sport or suit coat I can go up to 5" no problem. I'm also over 6' tall so that helps, the length of button-down casual shirts and sport coats are longer for my height than for more average or shorter heights.

I have carried a 92FS in an OWB and it conceals under a jacket or light unbuttoned shirt. I have also carried various subcompacts OWB under a button down untucked shirt without printing.
