    I have in the past. I personally cannot do IWB comfortably. The Beretta 92 is a large gun that needs a good belt, leather OWB holster, and a cover garment to conceal. It can be done, but a T-shirt will likely not conceal it well.

    The Beretta is a great gun, but it is a duty gun meant for open carry on a 2.25" belt. It would be fine in the winter time when wearing a coat. I would get a smaller gun for the warmer months.

    The Beretta 92fs is one of my favorite handguns. Good luck with it.

    I wouldn't mind carrying the 92 but keeping it from printing is next to impossible. Nice guns for sure.

    it's doable, but the Jframe is hard to beat for comfort.

    Nice pistol. Carried one for work and off duty for 9 years. Having a badge didn't make me worry about who saw it beneath a shirt.

    Put a "D" model hammer spring in it.

    Hopefully Shipwreck will be here to comment since he carries a fullsize or compact 92 IWB on a daily basis.
     
  10. It is pretty clear that only special people can realistically CCW a 92 on a regular basis.

    Such people are there. Not sure if they are just stubborn or what :rofl:

    For a typical concealment, I'd pick my 17 before my 92. And I'd pick my 26 before my 17 :)

    Couldnt possible be its what they shoot the best could it? Why would anyone want to carry a pistol they were most proficient with... thats just crazy. What works on paper doesnt always work in the hand

    I've carried the 92, a 5906, Ruger P85 and a Sigma .40 (the original one) concealed using various IWB holsters: it's doable if you have a good belt and find the right carry position. With that being said, I like my PPS for carry these days, but I'd be comfortable packing my 5906 concealed if need dictates.
     
  13. That is a good thing, stubbornly making a large gun work because they shoot it well. And not giving in to the easy carry of a smaller and lighter gun.

    Just saying not many people seem to stick with it.

  15. Nope, too big..would not want to or try to just not worth the trade offs in weight and comfort and such over a real CC size gun.
     
  16. Shipwreck, that looks like a nice holster. I'll think about getting one for my 92 :) What model is it called?
     
  17. I've carried fullsize and Commander sized 1911's IWB for 6 years now. I can imagine a 92 being a little harder, but not much. The key to comfortably and successfully CCW'ing big, heavy guns is a quality holster and a quality gun belt.

    If I wanted to carry a 92, the first holster I'd try is a Camp-Tac MTAC. I'm also a fan of kydex reinforced belts. (currently using reinforced belts from Aker, 5.11 and Wildeness Tactical)

    I carried a 96 for two years in a home made wet mold leather holster. It hid well, but in the end I couldn['t get past the slide mounted safety. Next stop? HK.
