    would this combination be considered conceiled??

    full size g20, in a serpa......with just a tee shirtcovering it.

    perhaps, possibly visable under the teeshirt..but does this classify it a being conceailed?

    summer is aproaching, lock my g20sf & serpa, but theres no way im iwb it, would be very uncomfortable, etc.

    If it becomes visible to the sight of an ordinary person then it is not concealed. Save yourself the hassle.

  3. Depends on the state definition of concealed. seems to vary a bit. check your state statute and check other states if traveling

    Generally means "not readily discernible from ordinary observation" but it does vary.

    I haven't tried the G20 yet but I have a MIC holster for my 23 and find in the waist carry very comfortable with great concealment. Check them out.

    I lived in Ohio up until about three months ago. I saw a very old and frail man in Walmart. He was wearing a some-what tight fitting black tee-shirt and blue jeans. It looked like he was trying to hide a cinder block under his tee shirt, so it was very clear to me that this man was wearing a full sized M1911 on his hip. This old man might have weighed 135 lbs... maybe... at any rate, the pistol was covered, and there fore it was concealed.

    Depends entirely on the statutes in your state. That being said it isn't very effective concealment and I would highly recommend getting a holster that doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. I'm partial to the Bianchi CarryLok and PaddleLok series of holsters, very good concealment for an OWB.

    Been carrying a G20 for 20 years in a Glock Sport Combat holster.

    I usually wear either a polo type shirt or a regular fitting t-shirt, or a short sleeve button-up shirt for warm weather carry.

    No one has ever mentioned my gun.

    I'm not a serpa fan however I've been carrying my G20 in a Desantis speed scabbard holster for the last 2 weeks (recently purchased) with just a polo type shirt and t-shirt without a hitch. Very comfortable and practical for a pistol of this size as I refused to shove a full size G20 inside my belt.
    My G23 gets the Galco royal Gaurd IWB holster.
    Almost forgot to answer your question. Why not? As long as its covered and not visible to the public to startle anyone.
    Here in ct we are issued a carry permit No where on it states concealed carry. After checking the states website the laws are very vague pertaining to carry laws even though few have tested the system in the courts and have won open carry rights in our state "use your own judgement" is what the Conn website says. I refuse to be a test dummy and try it so I keep it well hidden.

    Use the Glock holster. Its great...and cheap. $10-$15.

    I used to carry a 20 that way with no problem.

    Look in the mirror with your set-up. Then ask someone who knows you carry if they can tell.

    You might have to wear clothing for the gun.

    IMO the serpa sucks for trying to carry with, you need something that will ride a bit higher and tight.

    I OC my G17 all the time in NH. I get no stares or panicked onlookers.
  15. Top end wants to lean out and over a lot for me w/ my Serpa and G21. :(

    Of course I need a new gun belt too (out grew my old one) so that may not be the entire gun / holster combo's fault. :(
