You may not want to answer this question, and I understand. However, for those of you that are willing to answer it, how do you conceal carry? Do you have any clothing made specifically for concealed carry? Do you carry inside or outside the waistline? Do you pocket carry with a holster? Those of you with smaller .380 pistols, like the Ruger LCP, do you wallet carry?

rick,

glad you brought up the post.  As i mentioned in a thread i started , asking even if you can carry do you.  The think i find the hardest about having a cwp, is where to conceal the weapon.  as your permit states, its a concealed cary permit , not a flash my gun on occasion permit.  some / if not most, you can go from concealed to brandishing a firearm in no time flat.

things as simple as reaching for an object, bending over etc, can let your little friend play a game of peek aboo...    so this is probably the reason i dont carry as much as i should.  winter time is easier,  heavy jacket or sweatshirt,  small of the back ,waist, shulder holster , not really a problem.     summer time is the challenge, i know cargo pockets in shorts and pants work well for some of my friends, 

to get to the original question,   i carry in the small of my back, hides the gun well, either my 380 , or the 9mm.    not the most comfortable driving down the road, but probably the best for hiding it, also fairly easy to get too.   although my 380 almost dissapears completely, so getting a full grip on it to draw, is something you need to get used too.

i do not have any experience with wallet carry.  i carry a wallet , and itsnot great for sitting on while driving, not sure i would want to sit on a gun, also would  make it hard to draw , if you had to while in your car (i.e car jacking) .  

i would go to a gun dealer/ sportsmans store, and try them all.  sit in a chair, bend ,flex, reach.    draw and see if its easy to get out of the holster , get back in also.. 

thats my 2 cents worth. 

happy veterans day.
joe.

I have a .380, Ruger LCP. I also have the Ruger LCR chambered in .38 Special. Those are the two I would carry. I have holsters for inside the pocket, wallet, and inside the waistline. I guess I would consider carrying my Glock 26 or 19, but they are not as reliable as revolvers.

There might be people that would argue that point with you, Rick. How many jams, misfires, failures to extract, etc with each semi-automatic pistols you own.

Also, I would like to see photos of how you carry any of your revolvers in your wallet!!!!

You crack me up, Rick.

Here is how I wallet carry my semi automatic LCP. It is an Uncle George holster.

I used a hair dryer on my Uncle George holster to conform the LCP better to it. I blew hot air (Please, no jokes here.) on the holster for one and a half to two minutes. I then inserted the empty LCP in the holster and started to press around all printing edges. It's a good tip.

There is no imprinting. It's an easy carry, but it's semi automatic. And they all jam.

Here's the LCP in a Sneaky Pete holster. My holsters are for lefties. It attaches with a belt clip, and it looks like a cell phone case. I also have this holster for my Ruger LCR revolver and my Glock 26. I think that is the model? It's the baby Glock for the 9 mm. I shot my Glocks one time. I did not have any jams.

I'm considering an ankle carry for the LCP. Then I can carry a revolver, too.

Sorry, Keith. I don't think they make wallet holsters for revolvers. However, the Ruger LCR probably could be carried in a wallet. You would just have to have a big butt like Kim Kardashian.

Here you go, Keith. I believe you can use this as a wallet carry for your revolver LCR. You just need to have a large back pocket. I cannot wear my skinny jeans while carrying this.

By the way, the above wallet holster is for a right-handed person. I don't know if you noticed that.

Yes, you can front pocket carry any wallet holster. However, you cannot wallet carry all pocket holsters.
