Default Holster Printing

I have a Glock 19 in a Galco king tuck and don’t wear it all that often because of printing when I bend over so I generally appendix carry. Any advise for a different holster to wear in this position, it’s much more comfortable when I drive than appendix carry. Also, it doesn’t matter which position I bend over in, the printing is about the same.

Try:

• Wearing at the 3 o’clock position
• Squatting Vs bending over
• Not tucking in your shirt to allow it to move freely when you do bend over

If I squat I print just as bad. If I untuck my shirt my problem goes away; however, I was just trying to find a decent tuckable holster as that’s pretty much my daily work attire. Polo shirt tucked into my pants.

This^. I carry at 3 o’clock with a G19, however I don’t tuck in my shirt and I wear somewhat baggy shirts. The G19 prints with tighter shirts even at the hip so I don’t wear it often; at least for my body size.

Squatting when holstered from the hip would help to reduce grip sticking out.

If you’re using a tuckable holster for discreet reasons, I would recommend to ccw a smaller gun, perhaps a single stack.

Try a holster with a single belt clip configuration and a wing. The wing, or claw, helps push the butt of the handgun closer to your body. 951 Tactical makes a nice one. Bravo Concealment makes the Torsion which does the same thing by implementing a curve into their holsters.

It wont be as noticeable if you carry at 3-330 position. I would also suggest something like the Vedder holster that is just one belt clip and is also tuckable.

That's the deal with concealed carry. You have to adjust your carry to your attire. Reality won't adjust to you.

Consider a pocket carry pistol.

Looks like you want to print. Adjust your attire or carry method.

Everything mentioned above but I'll add a few suggestions. Look into a holster that sits lower on your belt. Tactical Justice makes their holsters for "deep cover"; check them out. It makes a huge difference where your gun rides on your belt.

Next, consider a gun with a shorter grip (hint, Glock 26). The grip is the hardest part to conceal. A shorter grip and lower holster will get you closer to where you want to go.

I got a chuckle out of that because it's exactly what I was thinking, that looks absurd. What is that shirt made out of, spandex? How often do you bend over like that in front of people? FCOL don't tuck the shirt so tight, adjust the gun lower, squat, and be discreet how/when you do it.

I have a few collection of IWB holsters now for my G19.
Appendix carry, I use Tier1 Axis. Vedder for 3:00 strong side. Also switched with Aliengear

But seriously, wear loose clothing, squat instead of bend over and be aware of your surroundings.

Glock 42 or 43 in a front pocket holster. Problem solved.

Or same in an Ankle Holster.

You can’t wear a tucked-in shirt like that, and bend over and NOT print / no matter what gun you carry or holster you wear.

This is the gay gun forum so bending over is not recommended.

Yeah, you need to untuck or wear a jacket in 100° wx. Sucks but untuck or pocket/ankle.

Cmon guys... OP is just wanting to show off those visible abs. In all seriousness I struggle with the same thing OP as that's my daily work wear. I've taken to pocket carry (Kahr CW9 or BG380) or leaving my shirt untucked. You would benefit from 3 o'clock carry and maybe a deeper holster. I've found I can get away with my G20 at 3pm untucked with cotton polo (not poly like what you have on) and it hides good enough.

How long does it take for you to access your handgun with your shirt tucked in like that? Just seems like more work.

If you don't want to print without making big adjustments to your manner of dress then you need to change the gun.

^^^^All of the above. Why do people not understand that making the conscious decision to CCW is a "LIFESTYLE" choice that necessitates an change in both attire and behavior.

If you want to carry a gun, then skin tight shirts and skinny jeans are probably not in your future if you want to minimize printing.

Note.. printing is not illegal.

I carry a G19 sometimes, or a VP9 or a P228 and I wear loose fitting clothes with patterns that break up any print.. I refuse to carry what I consider an inadequate combat handgun for fashion considerations.i know many are but I am not a believer in subcompacts

^^^All of this, PLUS place your hand on your back like it hurts when you bend over. Totally natural looking movement and it will distract from any printing

Most gun owners do not have the training to safety run an appendix holster. Simply seeing ex Delta / SeAL operators using them on YouTube is NOT training.

US Navy
Gunsite https://www.gunsite.com/
TFTT/Direct Action Group https://dag-usa.com/

I can recommend both Gunsite and TFTT / DAG without reservation. US Navy not so much. I have held CCW permits for the last 20 years and been an active IDPA / 3 gun competitor for over 25 years.
