Default Carrying while dressed semi formal

I am looking for holster recommendations for carrying with a dress shirt tucked in, but not a jacket. I know I could get a super tuck or similar but the clips would stand out clear as day. Anybody have any recommendations?

I would wear the jacket anyway. Just my opinion.

What weapon will you be carrying? Ever tried out a ankle holster?

Clips will only stand out to those who know what they are, most don't. MHO you understand.

Galco sells "C Clips" for the King Tuk that are pretty discreet. You have to really be looking for them to see them.

Those c clips put the weight on your pants not on your belt though right

Yes I agree but in something like a church setting people will notice why someone has two big clips on their belt.

I'm with Winds on this wear a jacket. What good is a gun that you have to dig for? Concealed carry isn't just about hiding the gun, it's also about ease of use. When fractions of a second count you don't want to be untucking your shirt to get to your gun.

Hahaha! agree, one of my personal "pet peeves".
The difference between a clip and a magazine.

Thought you meant clips on the Super Tuck, not magazines.
