Move the pistol forward of the hip. Have you tried a dedicated appendix carry holster so that you can wear it up front and not have to worry about printing from the rear when you slouch, sit or bend over?

I find that the natural curved shape of a revolver grip hides much more easily......

But I carry A pretty large Sig P220 under untucked button-down shirts.......

solid gun belt, reliable holster design that rides just behind the hip with serious forward cant (TT Gunleather "Mike's Special")

Ditch the +2 extension and move the gun counterclockwise on you waist (if you are right handed) until mild bends do not print....and learn to squat down unstead of bending over.

+100

And - It fixed my back problems... G26 is perfect for appendix carry for me, till my wife 'borrowed' it...

Now it's a G27 or G30.

Not too often I do a 'full backbend' anymore (never could anyway) so not alot of concern with printing these days.

I use the UncleMike's 'Softie' Size 12 it says.

Enjoy the pain free back! Just one of many benefits!

Or just carry a G19 or other larger pistol.
That seems to be the opinion of a lot of people on the matter, but if you actually compare side-by-side a G19 with standard mag and a G26 with the +2, you'll find that there is a significant difference in size. So for the person who wants something smaller than the 19, but wants somewhere to put their pinky or wants a few more rounds, the G26 with +2 can be a nice compromise.
That being said, I think using a standard mag, as many have suggested, would help my problem immensely. I'm just not sure if I feel comfortable with gripping the gun without somewhere for my pinky. Gonna have to do a little more shooting and handling with the standard mag in.
And to those who say not to worry about it, I'm really not worried about a little printing, but it was BAD. I adjusted the holster for a little more cant and that helped but it was still very noticeable.
Also, thanks everyone for your suggestions. I wish I could move it further forward but I'm a pretty thin guy, and any further forward would make the back of the slide stick out in front of my stomach.

Best piece of advice here is increase the cant. If that still does not work switch to GAP or standard floor plates to lose some bulk. I CC with shorts and a T-Shirt in Florida most of the year. Don't listen to people that tell you that you have to dress like a tourist in Hawaii or a baggy shirt slob to CC well.

Are there strict brandishing laws in your state? If not, I wouldn't worry about printing. If anyone asks what it is, just tell them that it is a medical device.

Poor concealment is sloppy, and you're right to worry about it. Change garments, weapon position, or sizing.

jopela..."I CC with shorts and a T-Shirt in Florida most of the year. Don't listen to people that tell you that you have to dress like a tourist in Hawaii or a baggy shirt slob to CC well."

I have yet to have anyone ask or even point out that I have a weapon on me. Up here in NE Ohio or summers get pretty hot and shorts & tee shirts are stand dress for those days. Most people are't even aware that you are carrying - and that's the way it should be.

If you are printing enough for people to notice either your close are way too tight or your weapon is too large for a CC.

I have a Raven Concealment holster and was experiencing a similar issue with my G23. I felt like the holster was holding the pistol up higher on my side than other IWB holsters I have had in the past. I was using the soft loops so there was not really a way to seat the holster lower than it already was so I switched to the tuckable j-hooks and with them you can lower the whole holster by putting it on the higher "rivets."

(http://www.ravenconcealment.com/quic...ckable-j-hooks)



And I guess you could even use different levels of the rivets to adjust the cant that way.

Wearing slightly oversize shirts works pretty well too.

Moedi,

Most of the year I use a Crossbreed holster for my G26, I have worn it so often now the leather fits like a fine glove. It sits low and I have to make a real deliberate move to draw with it. But that seem to be the trade off with holsters.

I have one other leather holster some years back now but it never did seem to break in just right for me. I like this Crossbreed style with either my G19 or G26

Good luck & be safe

Kentguy,

I have used the supertuck before and think it is great. I was just trying to give the OP a little bit of my experience with the Raven Concealment Phantom holster and give him a better way of wearing it IWB since he expressed concern about not changing his holster or gun.
