"Excuse me while I whip this out!!

How many pair of suspenders does it take to keep your britches up with that behemoth in place?

It's silly, but it works fine. It's not even terribly uncomfortable.

Rough side out leather holds the gun in place well. No sagging at all (Galco Belt).

I think it's kind of amazing that you can find an inside the waistband holster for a Deagle (nickname people call it on Grand Theft Auto/San Andreas message boards)

I used to toy with carrying a 6" N frame Smith IWB.

Can we get a pic of you wearing it? I'm curious to see how well it conceals.

I wouldn't mind having that set up, but in .44 magnum.

asking for a law suit

Man you are asking for a law suit if you carry that. Maybe even a prison sentence. If you pulled that in a legit situation the bad guy may infact back down once he wets his pants but if he doesn't and you need to use it you will probably kill the next 10 people standing behind him as well. I would think even with hollow points it would penetrate at least 3 full bodies.

It does look like a beutiful gun though and I would be tempted to try to carry it too. just saying please don't

Like Michael Keaton in "Out of Sight"

this "IWB" reminds me of the T-Shirt wore Michael Keaton wore as an undercover-agent in "out of sight". That t-shirt said "FBI" in 8-inch letters. Very under cover. Just like the huge belt-loops saying "Big Iron". Very IWB.

But a beautiful gun I'd also like to have (for brown-bear defense, we have a problem with that).

Looks like you are carrying this behemoth cocked and locked????

Getting an AD with this monster might "make" your week.

You got guts carrying that thing IWB. Good luck.

Does anyone make frangibles for .50 or .44MAG? I might be wrong, but I would think that while they may be too aenimic to depend on in normal calibers, something bigger might be able to deliver decent performance with them.

Pics as requested.

Comparison with my "real" carry guns:



How it sits on the belt (pardon the fish white belly):



And concealed:

All--

Gee. Carrying a Desert Eagle! Makes me want to carry mine. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to do it. Take a look . . .



And, if you can help me figure that one out, how about this one on my weak side?



Like someone said, you don't have to really hit in a vital area with a .50 cal . . . just HIT. If I miss with all seven rounds in the Desert Eagle, I can yank out the Carbon 15 (Little Missy) and dump a BUNCH of 5.56mm rounds in the general direction very quickly.

But, just like someone else said, the lawsuits would be stunning. Then again, the cops would have something to talk about FOREVER.

Thumper, It's refreshing to see that you have real carry guns. Of the three pictured it appears the Glock get the most attention (holster condition). This tells me that you aren't completely nuts LOL. Jokes aside it is a good looking pistol.

I've been carrying 24/7 for a very long time. I've carried just about everything made at one point or another.

This is NOT the largest gun I've ever carried (I lost a bet and had to carry an Automag for two weeks).

AUG for concealed carry! ;-)

...you could also carry an AUG with no problem (under a jacket), it's only 27" (69cm) in total.


If your really on it you could also take the 20" barrel. Still only 31"" (79cm):


but, let me ask you one question:
Why don't you carry open with that tatoo???

Actually my first carry gun was a six inch model 29 that I toted in a shoulder rig. I attached a Cold Steel Trailmaster to the off side.
Once I was running around with a cop buddy all day and he never knew I was carrying till we went back to my place.....

Of course, I had a 57 inch chest and a 45 inch waist back then.....

That's easy...in the winter. Trench coat, over-the-shoulder loop system. Pushing the "pistol" out against the loop around the shoulder provides some stability that makes up for the lack of a buttstock. Not a half bad l'il plan, if you expect serious trouble.
