View Full Version : suggestions for a CCW rig

April 16, 2002, 01:13 AM
I'm a pretty skinny guy and have a hard time concealing anything, right now I carry in a SOB holster, my current carry pistol is a browning BDA .380 but I'm thinking about getting a 1911 or a USP .45.

most of the time I wear a suit so I think my best bet might be a shoulder rig but what do you guys think?

Can you borrow a decent strong-side IWB rig to try?

For shoulder holster suggest Galco.
For IWB suggest Sparks and Galco.

Gonna have to accept trial-and-error.................

I'm not sure if iwb would work for me, when I say skinny I mean it, I'm 5'9" and 125 pounds

Considering your frame, you are probably right in staying with an SOB or shoulder holster for the larger frame .45s. One other thing to think about is that the larger auto may start "printing" on your clothing where the smaller auto did not. You'll have to find what works for you, but if you are going to carry a large auto on a regular basis, you might want to look at getting a slightly larger jacket, or tailoring new and existing jackets to reduce the issue.
