Conceal Carry clothes
« on: August 23, 2019, 12:59:46 PM »
Since my state just passed constitutional carry, Iíve been doing some thinking on starting to conceal carry. Iíve read the laws and I have a few people I can talk to about it. I was trying some holsters to get an idea of what will and will not work. Other than I need a better belt, I found that Iím worried about the pistol rubbing holes in my pants.

Is this a common problem? What can you do minimize ruining your jeans?

Iíve mostly been carrying offbody.

My biggest issue is that pants that ride high enough to be at my waist, usually donít fit me anywhere else. So I usually end up with jeans that ride the hips, which makes holster placement difficult.

I made a thread about this here years ago http://gunlink.info/forums/index.php?topic=1385.0  One of the obvious suggestions I got was just to OWB.

On some of my pants I stitch (or liquid stitch) in a patch inside where the holster rides as a sacrificial layer for the holster to chew on. A lot of it depends on the holster, position, material, the butt, and what it's sitting on for how much it will or won't wear through.

Good quality jeans like Riggs, Wrangler, or other work pants (or "tactical" pants) should hold up well. Some work pants have ripstop stitches to keep any little holes from spreading.
