Carry in golf atire

I will be working at a golf course this summer and into the fall and am trying to figure out how I should carry. My dress will probably be dress pants and a polo. I have a Sig 238 and a Springfield XDmc that I can carry concealed but I'll probably carry the Sig 238.

I've pretty much ruled out IWB because I find the clips from my Galco King Tuck to be too obvious (especially in sunlight) and I'll be giving lessons so I'll need to have the ability to swing a club and doesn't seem like it'll work well with a gun on my hip.

I'm considering getting the smart carry and seeing how the XDm works and if it's too big carry the Sig 238 there. I've also considered an ankle holster for the Sig but I'm worried if I'm seated that my pants may rise and reveal the gun but I don't know if I'll be sitting much while working. Any ideas everyone?
 

Major printing in dress pants though.


I have a 10.00 Blackhawk pocket holster that I use with my LC9 for carry with dress pants all the time and it's a non-issue. Printing issues mostly exist in the heads of gun owners anyway. Your average person never notices with all the smart phones and etc. that are out there these days.

True but I'm going to be working with the same people a lot. I feel someone at some point might. I have been considering a rectangular like holster for it.
 
I would just pocket carry that is the only thing I do with my 238 and I hate holsters.If I had a golf pro teaching me who was armed maybe I would learn more.
 
They make some pretty cool holster now that look like cell phone holders. For the life of me i cant remember the name but i thought of buying one for my wife and her lcp.
 
You might consider a set of the v-clips (with velcro) for your King Tuck and a strip of velcro on the back of your belt.

A Hawaiian or Cuban shirt worn loose and open would cover well. How about a tall or extra-tall golf shirt worn loose.

If you put your gun on and take a few swings in your back yard you will have a definite answer as to how that will affect your swing.

It's the Sneaky Pete. I purchase one but the thing is so dang huge and how will it look if I have a cell phone in my pocket and that thing on my hip.

It won't look like there's a gun on your hip. As I said before, these issues are mostly in the head of the gun owner and the average person never notices.
 
Trying to conceal, on your body, that deeply may make your pistol hard to get to when you need it and cumbersome to teaching. Have you ever considered a "training" bag for lessons? Something that will hold some "training aides" and your pistol. If you bring it to every lesson no one will question it. Additionally, if/when you are on the course you can slide your pistol into your golf bag. A simple "day planner" type case would allow you to move it between the two bags without question if someone were to see it. Just my thoughts.

I like the day planner idea. I'm seriously considering an ankle holster. And it's not customers I'm worried about as much as the people I work with everyday.

There is a product called "ThunderWear" that may be applicable as well.

The ankle holster may put it in the best place if you want to keep it on you at all times and have it stay out of the way. I just know how many times I have hit myself in the leg with a golf club not paying attention and if I hit my pistol it may be hard to explain the "klang" the club may make.


Klang

What was that?

Titanium Leggings. They're the new craze... Kidding



Several day planners made by DeSantis, Galco, Creative Concealment...

I have no ties to any of these companies and to be honest I bought a $10 case from WalMart made by Winchester that is fabric but looks enough like a day planner and protects my pistol when I put it in my golf bag.

Good luck to you!
 
Go for the SmartCarry, I use mine when in dress pants or when I just need guaranteed concealment. Much more comfortable then you'd think. If you did want to use your KingTuk, you could switch to J-Hooks instead of over the belt clips.
