    I am wanting to carry a Glock 19 but no matter how I try it is noticeable. Other than directly above my crotch. Is there any way to carry in a T-shirt and jeans?

    When I was 155lbs, I could still CC my full sized pistol, just takes dressing around it. Wear some looser shirts, and get a good IWB holster. Crossbreed supertuck, galco king tuk, any of the hybrid holsters are great. Hell, I made mine for about $22. Options are limitless.

    Have you tried or looked into Smartcarry and/or Thunderwear?

    What kind of holster/belt combination are you using?

    I'm guessing you're using a cheap belt (if you bought it at a department store, it's a cheap belt). cheap belt=holster tends to "fold away" from the body. While some larger, broader shouldered guys *might* be able to pull this off, a skinny guy just will not.

    A proper *gun belt* will keep the holster/firearm in tight to the body.

    couldn't agree more, the belt is one of the most important items needed. Keeps your holster from floping around like mentioned above. I have the same problem, i'm about 155 soaking wet. changing your wardrobe is irritating, but necessary to increase concealment.

    I carry a G17 @ 11 o'clock no problem. My large belt buckle helps to hide it.

    What kind of holster are you using? I wear a rather large belt buckle too.

    BTW I am 130 lbs and 5' 11" and wear skinny jeans and rather form fitting shirts. I think that might be the problem.

    As mentioned above, you must have a sturdy belt. That said, skinny jeans and form fitting shirts are probably the main culprit. You'll have to loosen up you t-shirts. Finally, one holster option is the Raven Concealment Systems ACR (appendix carry rig). I know several tall skinny guys who use this holster and really like it.

    Thanks! That looks like it just might work.

    My two most concealable modes of carry for a G19 (particularly when I was 6'2"@175lbs) were in a Smartcarry at 12 'o, clock or in a C-TAC at 8 o'clock (southpaw) with a slightly bloused T-shirt.
    Good luck.

    Simple, just carry in your purse.

    Gain weight... Remember you must work around the gun not the other way around... ;)

    The clothes are just a symptom, your problems are much deeper.


    Seriously, you need to dress around the gun, clothes need to be one size larger then you normally wear.
