    Re: CONSEALED CARRY SHORT COMINGS

    Since Texas adopted open carry, printing is no longer a deal. I still wear a cover when I go into Longview, but don't take the pains to be sure it doesn't show. Before that, they told us just a bump, etc doesn't count as printing. It had to reveal the pistol outline & a holster can prevent that. May vary with each state.

        When I carry, I do so in an owb UBG Bonneville when the EDC is the 9UC and A Nelson Eagle Defender when carrying my 380. As I'm retired, I don't worry about being a follower of fashion, even when going to Church. Day to day it's a long or short sleeve T-shirt and an open long or short covershirt depending on the weather. On Sundays, I normally wear a western shirt and an open cover shirt. Currently I'm waiting for a Nelson Shoulder rig to carry the 9UC for use with my duties on our Church Security team due to ever increasing problems with arthritis in the wrist and shoulder.

          UBG Regulator OWB is my favorite holster- I have one for the 380 and one for the 9mm.

            The Regulator by UBG is by far my favorite holster too. I have a stack of em, in everything from plain leather to some pretty wild exotics he has made for me over the years. My favorite is the one he let me make with him looking over my shoulder.

              I most often CCW a Ruger LCP around Florida. I also have a Glock 42 within reach. My Bersa comes out at the range or show and tell times with my friends reminding them of when guns were made of steel.

                Holsters are like guns, you have your favorites. For all leather I have UBG's. Here in Florida my favorite is the N82 Tactical Pro. Soft as a ducks ass aginst bare skin, 100% moisture proof , with super retention.

                My UBG's are reserved for my Bersa's

                Funny the UBG is made by Nate.
                The N82 is like it sounds Nate X2 or 2 Nates. Lol

                I don't like kydex! Period!

                So, I did a couple of post in this thread but I had to plug UBG for their craftsmanship in the leather line up too.

                  Last night bumped into one of my LTC students who thought he was concealed Carrying. had to point out that the shirt had ridden up over the gun. He pulled the gun out and tried to re-holster in his IWB holster and I had to step back. A lot of people do not realize the danger they put themselves in trying to re-holster. If you have to pull a gun from a non-kydex you need to pull the holster also and replace in holster away from your body.

                    If most "unintentional" bangs happen when one is cleaning their gun.... probably the 2nd most often occurrence is when they are re-holstering!

The problem is I live in central Florida where daily attire is one layer, usually a polo shirt or the like and rarely a jacket or outer layer. The dang thing is just too obvious and hard too conceal. I could go to an inside the waist holster but heat and humidity preclude that. I tried out the Bersa T380cc at my dealer shop but it's really no help. So it looks like the Bersa is going to be a great car gun. Dang I hate that. Of course, anytime a longish jacket or hoodie is required the Bersa is ideal but that happens NOT often around here.

                      Any of you guys had this problem and how did you deal with it? Perhaps one of these pocket pop guns ?
                      I carry my Thunder, in my carry rotation, and I have no issues with printing. I carry mine in a Fobus Kydex paddle holster, OWB. It's all about your clothes and belt. I carry either OWB or pocket, and I have a number of collared "no tuck" shirts I have bought (one size big), and they cover just fine.

                      When my wife and I lived in the Naples area, I started to dress this way so I could carry in the heat....I just carried the attire over to Indiana living now.

                        Re: CONSEALED CARRY SHORT COMINGS

                        Okay, so I have ordered a Remora IWB holster with the extended sweat shield and the "tuckable" feature. Tuckable allows one to tuck your shirt over the holster even in IWB mode. I got the leather lining just for the hell of it. It's due to arrive today.

                        I ordered "on line", a more or less painless experience and they were quick to answer a few questions I posed. Of course they now know my email add and have been sending me adds twice a day for 10 days now announcing a 30% off sale. I sent them a email pointing out I had just ordered and asking for the discount . The response was more or less unintelligible. O well.

                        While I'm on line lets address the safety issue posed a few posts back re the dangers of drawing/re holstering. The reason we (many of us) like the Bersa T380 is because of the DA/SA design. I carry my gun with a shell in the chamber, decocked in DA mode. The danger of an unintentional discharge is low. One has to pull the trigger through it's full range which only then cocks and fires the gun. Yep, that 1st DA shot may not be as accurate as subsequent SA shots but then I haven't shot myself instead of the target. If I'm lucky. LOL

                          Okay got the Remora yesterday. Initial impressions are positive. We shall see.

                            I find that my BT380cc fits in a Remora holster in a front pocket. Solves the printing problem quite nicely. Not sure how it would do in a hot/humid environment, that isn't a problem in the Pacific Northwe(s)t.

                              Every time I read the title of this thread my mind interprets it as, "Concealed Carry Shorts" and then I picture Officer John in his uniform shorts!

                              So I figured I should Google CC shorts to see the latest fashion........

                                I've had the Remora for few days now. Mostly okay but I may have made a mistake in ordering the leather lining because the process of getting the holster to form around the gun using a hair dryer is less than perfect. I suspect the leather lining is the issue. No biggie.
