I have a Galco King Tuck holster and it conceals my Glock 32 very well. With a tucked, loose fitting T shirt, I have to contort my torso quite a bit to get it to really print. It's very comfortable also.

In T-shirt weather, you gotta go IWB. Any OWB is going to print. They do make wraparound torso holsters but I can't see them being comfortable at all in the heat. A gun belt is another choice but depending on your frame, it still may print...

Luckily in NC printing is not against the law. Look in a mirror at your set up and see what you need to change. The wife will let me know if she can see a print, or bless her heart she will buy me another shirt with a bolder pattern.

I had a problem with an ankle rig showing while sitting in church but it has since been retired to the holster box.

If you're having printing problems, take a look at your rig. I conceal a G23 in a comptac Minotaur set to zero cant at 3:00 very well.

I wear my sport/combat holster everywhere with everything (including t-shirts), the only problem is the extended mag release pokes me when I'm in my vehicle.

Printing here in Florida is a no no. The law reads it is at the officers discretion in regard to brandishing.......... Cough, cough bullsh*t.

I don't like the sound of that.

Buy a thinner pistol, a Glock is going to print like that in summer apparel.

before making yourself bigger, and possibly uncomfortable, change the holster. A custom made holster will solve these issues for under $70.

Thats not really true. I have been carrying Glocks of all sizes for years in all types of clothing including swim trunks and they can certainly be hidden. There is no print from my 19 in any clothing using my defensiveholsters.com holster.

What does that mean?
