Anyway: I think the J-frame can be carried in jeans/regular pants just fine. I prefer a holster/semi auto, but during the summer I carry a 642 in a pocket holster with moderate ease. Is it a little hard to get out? Yes. Practice. Does it print horrifically? Yes/no: It looks like something "big" is in my pocket, but you cannot tell its a revolver. I would imagine it looks like one of those big-rear end droid things.

Now on to the second question: What is your response to 'What are those black clips on your belt for?'

They arent hidden. They stick out like a sore thumb, you must get called out on it a lot.

Honestly I have never been asked before, not sure why anyone would look that closely at my beltline unless the gun was printing badly or something. I basically always have at least one layer of something covering my beltline/gun when I am carrying, most often its just another t-shirt and whatever hoody/jacket. The only time that I use the tuckable portion of the overhooks is when I am wearing a suit and jacket because I don't want to wear two t-shirts underneath and I can just tuck my shirt into the hooks and use the suit jacket as the cover garment.

Edit:

Chantilly Say posted:

How do you plan to access it quickly if you need it?

By lifting up my shirt in my normal carry configuration, if I have a jacket or some such over that I would need to move that out of the way. If I needed it while it was tucked in, the same would apply, move aside my suit jacket, pull the shirt out and draw like normal. The kydex is smooth so it doesn't really grip your clothing preventing you from pulling the shirt up quickly to reveal the gun.

I used to worry so much about printing. Now I pretty much don't give a poo poo. I've been carrying for almost 5 years now and have only ever been made once, because I was crawling around on the floor with my son and my shirt rode up.

People are by and large rather oblivious, as has been mentioned. That said, if it really worries you, there is a solution in the form of Comp-Tac's velcro clips. Rather than hooking over the belt, they attach to the inside of the belt via a strip of velcro (Beltman offers this as an option when ordering). As a result, the clips are very nearly invisible.

Joking aside, I don't understand how this could happen. I have the comp-tac and it's sturdy as hell, but it never actually touches my flesh. I even wear it when I'm not carrying to "break in" the part that buckles so it's a bit easier to deal with.

I do this as well, and have no problems. Really the only problem I've had is the belt is so stiff that it makes the buckle stick about a mile out, but it has been getting better the more I wear it.

I was always afraid of printing, but the only time I have been made was when someone hit my gun. One was from a lady-friend who tried to hug me. She wasn't too surprised I had a gun. Another was when I was helping some friends move a piano, and one friend hit his elbow on my gun. He knew I carried, and likes to point it out whenever he can.

I was there the first time my brother got made. We had stopped to stay at my grandparent's in Arizona and when we left my grandma gave my brother a hug goodbye and in the process she felt the gun on his belt. The cool part was she really didn't care that he was carrying, she was just concerned because she didn't realize concealed carry was legal and thought everyone still had to open carry.

I bought a Ruger LCP today. My SW642 is a great gun and ive carried it for almost three years, but it cant go in a pocket at all. I felt the LCP would be able to go places i was uncomfortable taking the 642.
I have a XD 45 full sized and would never try to ccw with it. If you have to wear extra clothes at all to hide it youre doing it wrong, imo.

I support your right to do so. I just dont trust that it will stay concealed enough for my tastes, and so i go smaller. I want to have full range of motion without worry. Go with what makes you comfortable, right?

I have to wear a loose shirt that goes below the waist by at least 4 inches before im sure i wont expose my 642 carried IWB by reaching up or bending over too far. I'm more comfortable if that shirt is something more substantial like a wool collared shirt, but then ive got to go untucked, and i dont like the slob look so much these days.

It seems to me that full sized guns carried IWB at 6 or 3 clock will snag and bunch a shirt if i were to say bend foreward as though picking an object up off the ground, and then go upright again. Id have to make a conscious effort to bend my knees and squat to do any elevation changes, or remember to constantly readjust my shirt when standing up from a seated positon, to smooth out. Again, this requires i go shirt untucked, and look like i take nothing serious in life.

My solution with the 642 is to carry at about 2 clock. Shirt tucked, with a jacket that wont easily brush past my waist. I still wont do this in an area with concentrated people, like a mall or busy market. The potential danger of being made will vary by the local attitude to guns, but in my area I would expect the cops to come if the prevailing mindset type were to spot my piece.

The LCP will fit in the pocket of a Pendleton shirt nicely. Tucked shirt, no jacket.

Shoulder holsters require a jacket or vest. IWB is the only thing that i can see to get around that. Show me a way to CCW a full sized with a tucked in shirt and i will tip my hat to you.

Just something I've been curious about, how is appendix carry supposed to work? It's pretty comfortable standing up, but I literally can't sit down. I don't mean that it jabs my junk uncomfortably; my G19 completely prevents my leg from bending. Am I just proportioned wrong for it, or do people who appendix carry generally wear Steve Urkel pants?

4 o'clock is working just fine for me but man, I just don't get it.

I had absolutely no idea I could potentially even be judged by anyone under the age of 70 for not having my shirt tucked in.

I'd even go so far as to say it's the complete opposite. When I see young people (and by young, I mean under the age of 40) with their shirts tucked in I wonder about them a little bit because they seem like they take life way too seriously.

Of course there is. And I carry that way when I have a dress shirt on.

All you need is the proper holster. MTACs and many other IWBs are set up to do this. The belt clip/velcro goes over the top of your belt/pants, down about 2 or more inches, then comes back up to the body of the holster. You just truck your shirt in there.

Yes, i did over emphasise the tucked shirt. I thought it was funny. Sometimes there is call for tucking a buttoned up collared shirt, and wearing a gun. These times are the hardest to ccw. I dont like to be the one guy in a group at the nice restaurant whos shirt tails are going all over the place.

A tucked in t-shirt or polo is out of the question. That is pretty odd looking.

This question was asked on the last page and I posted pictures of how its done/how it looks with a IWB Holster and tuckable overhooks, seriously just check the last page. This is very common and basically all the good IWB holsters from what I understand have attachments that allow you to do it.
