"professional business attire" without a jacket? Are you kidding? Do you wear black leather with khakis too?

Touché. I suppose I should have said "business casual" but most people think of that as meaning a polo and khakis. Basically, imagine a suit but without the coat (unless I am meeting clients).

you're going to turn your nose up at pleated trousers while you wear a tie without a jacket? that's Verizon salesman tier.

Bahaha!

You cannot see my pistol in my gray wool pleated dress pants or my khakis or in any of my suit pants when it is in my front pocket (which is not as good as in a waistband holster but much better than leaving it at home)







I still prefer to wear it in front of my hip on the waistline beside my stomach instead of in the rear. Let me be clear. I do not like it in the rear. It is less likely to show in the front than in the back because I have more control over what my shirt looks like in the front. And it is more comfortable when seated. I hate to remove it from my back to ride to the store and then put it back when I get out of the car. And then there is trying not to bend forward and have it show. And if you sit in a wooden chair or booth in a restaurant and have it go THUNK when the gun hits it and have everybody wonder wtf that noise was from.

Aaaaaand we've come full circle.

Hypothetically.

I am having a hard time imagining carrying that way for someone that spends most of their day seated. Also, isn't one of the first rules of firearm safety not to point the firearm at anything you are not prepared to see destroyed?

Can you link to a holster setup that is worn that way?

That's not what I heard! Am I doing it right?
