Some time ago I decided to have my PDS (Personal Defense System ) with me at all times where I could do so legally.
My concealment garments have been simple and, as best as I can determine, effective. I have yet to be chewed up by a police dog, find myself staring down the bore of a duty weapon face down on the pavement, or have someone running out of an establishment screaming "GUN GUN GUN"
Shirts designed to be worn with the tail out i.e. Hawaiian shirts (without the flash of neon colors) or Cabana casual shirts. $11.00 on sale @ J C Penny. I have tried buying a size larger than necessary to make the tail longer, but found the look to be too disheveled to suit my taste.
When temps are moderate, a sport coat or fleece pull over or jacket slightly over sized serves quite nicely. I have recently found long sleeve shirts with the tail cut straight so it can be worn with the tail out and not look sloppy. One of these is en route so we will see how it looks.
Am I missing something?
I have heard this type of dress described as "shoot me first" attire. I agree with this statement when a photographer's or some of the tactical vest are concerned. General run of the mill garments that cover the piece seem to serve nicely.
I have asked the Matriarch and our Princess if they can tell I have my PDS on my hip. Both have said since they know what is there, they notice something is there, but they can not determine what is there. Bottom line - 98% of the folks go around in their own little world and are unaware of anything beyond their cell phone keyboard. Any one who might notice something probably isn't concerned.
Oh, my PDS of choice is a compact size handgun (similar to a G19) in a belt slide holster, not a pocket pistol.
