It is more for at church and that kind of thing. I wear a jacket but in the summer it is too hot to be comfortable in that. People notice what you are wearing in those situations...

Try the TactiPac holster. I just bought one and it works great for what your describing.

Did you get the FusionPac? I just contacted them to have one made for P938, which is not a standard option.

I don't know what kind of gun you are dealing with here, but if it is a sub-compact, I'd go with either a pocket holster or an ankle holster. Having to pull your shirt out of your trousers will take too much time, and draw attention to yourself when you need to get the gun quickly and without being noticed, if possible. However, if you're hiding a Ruger Blackhawk with a 7 1/2 inch barrel, it'd be kinda awkward in a pocket or ankle holster. For a large gun, you'd best wear the jacket. There may be a way to rig up something to put around your waist under your trousers that will let the piece dangle down one leg, so you could unzip your fly to draw the gun.

I don't have a cc gun yet the $$$ are lacking but I would like to get a pf9. I am doing all the window shopping that I can for now!

For a PF9 or anything that size, a pocket holster is a really good choice. The gun is nearly invisible, and easy to access.
But get a gun ASAP, so you won't end up wishing you had.

Look into the Sig Sauer P938, it's a 9mm just slightly larger than a Sig 238 or Elsie Pea.
I found I could use my Uncle George wallet holster that I bought for my LCP/Sig 238 with this Extreme version 938. I loaded it with Hornady Critical Defense 9mm rounds. It weighs about a pound and is 1.1 inches wide.

Here are the specs and a pic of mine in the Uncle George.

I live in Arizona and we wear as little as possible with the heat. I have one of these and it's great with shorts and a tee tucked in. Also, it will handle everything from my Glock 27 to my AMT Automag lll. Very versatile.
