Newbius knows how to wear a CCW holster.
Wearing a sweater, the big double stack magazine XD45 is totally invisible on him at his 4 o'clock position. He uses something like a Comp Tac IWB, but it's another brand, I believe. Same idea. Noticed this at the mini-blogshoot at the NRA.
We discussed the utility of middle aged men wearing decent quality Hawaiian shirt in the summertime.
I've only had the opportunity to wear my IWB holster in public a few times. Like at the Northcoast shoot. I'm not used to it, and it feels like the Sig P229 sticks out like a sore thumb, clunking against every hard item I get near and making a thunk noise doing it. I probably have to carry that way a lot more to get used to it.
Everything about CCW seems to go in the opposite direction of my aspirations. I want to carry a 1911, but I shoot a DA revolver batter. I want to carry IWB, but pocket holsters work so well for me. Or shoulder holsters. They work well. In fact MBtGE gave me an older Bianchi shoulder holster that doesn't fit any gun he now has. Works for me and snubbie, tho. Looks like the newer Bianchis are much improved, too. This one I have now seems circa 1989.
Going hunting today - gotta go. more later.
