Trying to conceal my PT111
 
I have an IWB holster but I just can't seem to conceal it very well.

I'm 5'9 155lb now but I seem to have a nice bulge and dont feel comfortable walking around with it like that. People will know that I have a weapon and that isn't kosher with me.

I will try to take pictures tomorrow.

My normal casual wear is a tee shirt over my 3" 1911 (or KT PF9/G27 dependent on my mood) with an unbuttoned shirt over that. It conceals my IWB nicely for me in that manner. Dressier occasions call for a LCP in a pocket holster.

Crossbreed supertuck. I don't know what holster you have but IMO, that is the best one out there. I'm 6' 180 so we're about the same build and I have no problems hiding it in a t shirt an shorts. If you're planning on wearing a tight fitting shirt you can forget it. My wife works at Eddie Bauer and I was wearing their large but started getting large long. They aren't too long where I'm wearing a dress but gives me an extra inch or so that really help.

You will need to go up a size on your shirts if they are not real loose. it also helps to wear shirts with a print. Solid colors do not hide bulges well. Dont waste your money on any thing by uncle mikes. Bianci makes a nice strong side outside the waistband holster for the glock 26. It also fits your gun. It runs about 60 bucks. Nicie rig. Worth every penny. It has a release lever you operate with your midlle finger.

The pt111 is a pretty small pistol. If you can't conceal it well you have issues. :D

Try an waistband pancake holster canted, try the supertuck, blackhawk check-six, high noon holsters,etc...there are lots of options.

Don't tell me you were trying to use one of those cheesy $15 iwb's? They are cheap and will ensure your gun falls out when you bend over.

Rules for carrying 1. Quality gun 2. Quality belt 3. Quality holster. You will regret any compromise of these three basics. I have!

actually it's pretty tight in the holster. Just where the clip on the holster is pretty low so over half of the pistol is over the waist band.

I might actually make my own. I'm pretty good with stuff like that.

Buy quality and only cry once.
