1-Where do you live? Climate dictates dress.

2-Where do you plan on carrying? IWB, OWB, SOB, shoulder, ankle, etc...

3-A darker colored shirt will show less outline.

4-Your mannerisms, preening, can get you "made", without a print or outline.

CPL implies MI... Michigan is legal open or conceal carry (with license).

Don't worry about printing.

Preening is making adjustments, either consciously or unconsciously, to your clothes, equipment or person.

Don't mess with your shirt. Don't mess with your pants, belt, waistband or pockets. Don't adjust your holster every five minutes. Don't check for a pattern.

Just be cool.

What you carry & how you dress will make a big difference. In hot weather, I wear short sleeve button up shirts that are designed to be worn untucked. That design has gotten to be pretty common, so it doesn't draw attention & it is also not as close fitting as a regular tucked shirt would be. I can hide just about anything under mine.

But I think the most important thing is choosing the right gear. Don't scrimp on the holster & belt. If they allow the gun to sag, cant out away from your side, or cant forward or backward, it can make it difficult to conceal. Also, if your pistol tends to shift position, you will unconscieously "preen" or try to nudge it back into place.

I don't worry about it. The law says the weapon must be concealed
and as long as a shirt/jacket covers the weapon I meet that criteria.
Printing proves nothing. I could be wearing a tuna sandwich for all
prople know. My $.02.

Haha I like your analogy and you make a good point as long as they can't see the firearm you've done what is asked. You have no control over the guy who gets all columbo on ya and try's determine what is under the shirt...
