    The church I attend is pretty casual, I wear a Bianchi pancake holster w/ a Colt Combat Commander and just leave my shirt tail untucked.
    we actually have 8-10 members that open carry in church, I just personally prefer concealed carry

    I have been carrying with a sticky holster which probably isn’t the best way but there are so many choices and I haven’t wanted to waste a bunch of money on holsters I don’t like.

    I have just recentry started to carry at church but I have been uncomfortable for many reasons.

    1. Depending on where I am sitting I am alway a little nervous of printing… If someone is behind me I just dont want to make people feel uncomfortable or for them to know I am carrying a gun. I am always concerned people are noticing my gun

    2. Carrying at 4 a clock hurts my old buldged disk injury.

    3. Apendix carry digs in while sitting down.

    I have heard people say well it will be comfortable when you get the right holster but if y’all could point me in a direction that would be great. I am a good size guy 6ft 1 240LB but I hate wearing baggy clothes.

    Suggestions?

    I attend a small church. Plus everyone knows my wife and I carry. Plus the preacher carries as well. Drawing from a holster while sitting is usually not a good idea. I use the Standard Bag from Ranger Supply Room. It has a zipper pouch that will hold a gun (trigger is covered) and 2 extra mags. I unzip the top for easier access. Everyone calls it my man purse. LOL

    Get a small 380 or 9mm and put it in your pocket in a soft holster. Unless you're wearing skin tight pants to church ;)

    My favorite and most comfortable method of carry is still IWB for my 4" Wilson Combat Professional in a Milt Sparks VM2, providing my method of dress that day allows it. If it does not, I carry in a pocket holster.

    I think it happened last month. Some Korean guy got into a fender bender with a group of 3 ladies in another car. They called their boyfriends or relatives, it’s unclear, and a bunch of rowdy males arrived and made the situation tense. A fight ensued and the Korean guy took multiple punches to his head.

    He rushed to his Jeep to retrieve his gun which was in the glove box which of course caused the other guys to get their guns. Somehow it ended up with the Korean guy taking multiple shots and dying after running away a short distance. Pretty pointless tragedy.

    We all talk about carrying a gun for protection, what sbout 911 and covering your ass if you pull your gun or actually use it?
