That's the way I carry all the time, most comfortable, conceilable way I have found, by a long shot. And I can carry no matter what I wear. I carry in a smart carry but it's the same thing as thunder wear.

This would be a no go for me, customers would notice that right away. I have to be 100% concealed.

I wouldnt worry about it, but this might be a possibility. http://aliengearholsters.com/plastic-c-clips.html

I'm sure you can find metal or slimmer ones.

Mikes size 1. Comfortable for me when my shirt is untucked. It will work on my Justin boots as well although not perfect.

Pockets stretch out quick. Not really a long term solution.

I wear similar clothing to you and wear guns twice that size without issue. As said above, get a real gun belt. Your troubles will largely go away with this. I carried a ruger sr9c with the full 17 round mag ( which that/the grip is what makes concealing hard) iwb with an alien gear holster, no problems. One thing, if you've got some pounds you could give up, doing so made concealment alot easier for me. Another thing is blousing your tuck, and drawing all the material to the hips (especially for me since i carried strong side). With all the extra material brought to your sides, your tuck looks nicer (without need for a fitted shirt) and covers the gun better. I honestly spent a couple hours trying to figure what worked best for me. On the sr9c, I only switched to the 10 rd mag for polos as the grip was too high out of the tucking point and came into where the material line was. Play with cant as well, as it may make a larger difference than you realize. The sr9c was a pain until i realized canting it forward as much as possible made the lines much more concealable.

1. You're gonna need a new belt made to carry a weapon. Standard belts not made for weapon carrying will not cut the mustard and will make carrying a PITA. Theres a ton of different options out there to fit every style so look at a bunch and find what suits your style the best.

2. Get a kydex holster.

3. Carrying a gun is NOT supposed to be comfortable, it is however supposed to be comforting. So give it some time and stick with it and try different options. Once you figure out what types of belts/guns/holsters work for you you'll forget it's there. Rarely, do CC'ers find the perfect setup on the first try. Most of us have a safe full of guns and a drawer full of holster and belts that we don't/rarely use.
I too have a drawer full of holsters. I usually carry either in my Code 10-32 IWB or my new Safari OWB. And I also wear mostly dress shirts IWB/OWB untucked till I get to work then tuck there as I can't carry in a secure building. When I wear a polo it's the IWB Code 1032 with an undershirt. Out and about I usually wear a tee with all sorts of over shirts unbuttoned. Hawaiians, pressed dress, chambray work, etc... And I carry a Glock G23

Is the "VersaCarry" the one that has a rod in the barrel?? If so, I wonder why the issue the caveat that they are not responsible...

In your boot may as well be in your purse as both are a huge tactical disadvantage.

Adjust your dress to untucked Polo's or better yet untucked button up shirts and OWB instantly becomes comfortable and very concealable.
Yup, an ankle holster is for a back-up. Not your main carry...

You can get a belt with velcro lining and a tuckable holster with Velcro clips. That way the clips are on the inside of the belt and out of sight.

I thought about an ankle holster but it will take me an hour to pull up the starched jeans high enough to get over the boot!!!
What jacket do you wear? I am tired of choosing and hanging at online stores in search of a good one, what's your opinion about jackets from here ? Thanks in advance.

Comp tac has velcro clips that attach to the back of your velcro lined belt and can not be seen or the c type clips that are less visible. Their kydex lined belts are great too.
