Carrying a gun in a suit

10 Tips to Properly Conceal Carry when wearing a Men’s Suit, Blazer, or Sport Jacket

There are many challenges a man faces when carrying a concealed firearm while wearing a suit, sport jacket, or blazer.

We’ll discuss how to overcome them by having a suit made or adjusted to ensure your weapon is truly hidden.

If you’ve decided to wear a concealed firearm with a suit, always employ the services of a competent tailor who is familiar with the requirements of concealed carry.

Whether he makes a suit for you or adjusts your existing sport jacket, the right experience and expertise makes all the difference.

Here are 10 tricks we employ to ensure a proper conceal carry:

1. Take your measurements with your firearm – when working with a new tailor, be upfront that you are carrying a concealed weapon before he measures you.

Some clothiers may have an issue, and it’s best to be transparent before you find yourself in an awkward situation.

2. Add an extra layer of lining or canvas to the bottom 12 inches of jacket; this will increase the stiffness and as mentioned reduce printing.

Extra fabric to prevent printing of a concealed carry firearm can be added after the fact, but it is best if it’s designed and woven into a custom jacket or suit where you have full control.

3. Add an extra ½ to 1 inch of length to the jacket (depending on your height) – this extra length will help ensure when you raise your arms you do not reveal that you are carrying a holstered firearm.

4. Make sure to have small arm holes to minimize the rise of the jacket when raising ones arms; this is related to the above point, but is separate as it cannot be altered and should be paid attention to when the jacket is purchased .

Custom jackets and suits should be made standard with this feature.

5. Have small weights sewn into your jacket lining at the font bottom corners of your jacket, and ensure the corners are more square than rounded.

This added weight and shape with extra fabric will help prevent you from flashing to the world you conceal carry.

Another option is to turn the jacket’s corners into small pockets where you can store a heavy coin such as a silver dollar or commemorative coin.

6. Select dark colored fabrics for your suits, sport jackets, and trousers; also patterns that break up lines such as herringbone, nailhead, and birdseye work well.

Avoid pin stripes on a suit – they accentuate a bulge in the fabric and should never be worn when you look to conceal a firearm.

Also avoid mixing light colored trousers with a dark suit – this draws the eye to the midsection where you may be carrying your weapon.

7. Consider stiff & heavy fabrics such as cotton, flannels, and winter weight wools. These naturally resist printing and require little if any of the specialty adjustments we discussed. Unfortunately they only look natural in cool weather areas.

8. Wear a matching dark colored vest. This eliminates the stark contrast between the light colored shirt and your firearm and if worn under your jacket enables you to take your coat off without startling your officemates.

Few suit vests can properly conceal a gun, so this is a supplemental item and does not substitute for a jacket.

Wearing both a jacket and vest over your concealed weapon should be avoided if possible as it makes it harder to reach you weapon.

9. Sew in a plastic rod or zip strap like piece along the jacket’s front openings. This stiffens the fabric edge and enables you to easily flip it out of the way for a quicker draw.

10. Consider a sartorial distraction such as a pocket square or boutonniere. A man wearing a flower in his lapel is less likely to be suspected of carrying a weapon by a casual observer.

Nevertheless, this trick calls attention to the wearer, so it is only advised if the wearer is otherwise the center of attention, such as when delivering a speech.

Like any magician will tell you, the key is to direct your audience’s attention on what you want them to focus on.

Gun rights in Nevada on ballot in November.

Nevada: Secretary of State Assigns Bloomberg Gun Control Initiative, Question #1 on the November Ballot

Today, April 11, the Nevada Secretary of State announced that the Bloomberg gun control initiative will be Question #1 on the November ballot.  This initiative would make common firearm transfers illegal unless conducted through a federally licensed firearms dealer, absent limited and narrow exceptions (so-called “universal” background checks).

This November, Nevadans will have the opportunity to vote down this unnecessary and unenforceable proposal which Governor Sandoval already vetoed in 2013.  Bloomberg’s NYC propaganda may say this is a gun safety measure, but we all know that this measure has nothing to do with safety or addressing crime and would only impact law-abiding Nevadans.  It’s important that Nevadans stand up for their rights and not let New York City money influence the future of Nevada!

VOTE NO ON QUESTION #1!

Criminalizes Sales, Loans, Leases and Gifts too!

The Bloomberg gun control initiative would criminalize otherwise lawful transfers unless both parties appear jointly at a gun dealer, have a check run and are subjected to fees.  “Transfers” are not just limited to sales but apply to any situation where a firearm owner relinquishes possession unless specifically enumerated as an exception.  The exceptions are incredibly narrow and could turn an otherwise law-abiding person into a criminal, unknowingly.  For example, a firearm can be borrowed to shoot at an established shooting range; however, that same activity away from an established range such as BLM land is not authorized and would constitute an illegal transfer.

Bloomberg’s Gun Control Initiative Would Not Prevent Crime

It would only cause undue burden on law-abiding gun owners.  Criminals by their very nature circumvent the laws.  According to the Bureau of Justice statistics, 77% of inmates surveyed1 acquired their guns through theft, the black market, from drug dealers, straw purchase or family and friends.

This Initiative is Unenforceable

“Universal” background checks are not universal because criminals will never comply with these requirements. According to the National Institute of Justice, “Universal” background checks are unenforceable without requiring complete gun registration.  The Bloomberg gun control initiative is an unenforceable, unfunded mandate on law-abiding citizens that will only divert law enforcement’s already scarce resources.  Make no mistake, the real goal of this initiative is the registration of all firearms.

Get the Word Out!

It is important that you tell your family, friends, fellow gun owners and sportsmen to voice their strong opposition to the Bloomberg gun control initiative and vote “NO” on Question #1 in November.  Don’t let Bloomberg and his money dictate your rights!  If you would like more information or to volunteer please visit NRAILA.org/NVRIGHTS or contact your Nevada Grassroots Field Coordinator, Keely Hopkins, at Keely@NRAILAFrontlines.com or (703) 939-0824.
