    Big Green,

    These days, since I'm retired now, I usually wear golf shirts with trousers of some sort & boat shoes, 3 seasons a year.
    (Winter means a sweater and/or light jacket.)

    I have NO trouble concealing my Sig-Sauer P225 in the belt holster.
    (In point of fact, a friend who is a Bexar County Constable picked me up for lunch last week & over lunch said, "Tex, I cannot believe that you're not carrying a firearm."
    I said, "I am." - He said, "A Deringer?" - I said, "Nope, my 9mm."- He said, "I can't see it. Is it on your ankle?" - "It's holstered on my belt", said I.)

    Fyi, a long/untucked golf shirt covers a multitude of sins.

    yours, satx

    I don't really have a dress code at work, so I wear same day in, day out. Usually some Levi relaxed jeans or vortx defender jeans, a 2XL tall undershirt and a t-shirt or polo over that. My pps prints a little bit because the holster I have I can only comfortably wear at 3-4 o'clock, but my p938 and p226 don't print at all

    I wear jeans and untucked, square bottom, button down shirts.
    Going to work it's IWB, messing around it's OWB.
    Nobody ever knows I'm carrying my G23.

    5.11 TacLite Pro pants are perfect: light fabric, loose cut, roomy in the crotch, deeeeeeep pockets, a lanyard ring for my badge, and they still look slightly dressy. Nobody knows the IT guy is carrying.

    It's a G23, and no, about "9:30", as I'm a lefty.

    Sorry, G23. I had the 43x on the brain I guess. Anyhow, what holster do you use for that?

    I wear the 5.11s also. Great pants for all the reasons above. Untucked shirt covers all depending on how loose it is. IWB pretty much anything. I carry a G19X most days. Shorts, 5.11 also, I usually carry my G43X. Quick trip to the store and/or around the house in sports shorts a Ruger LCP 2 in a pocket holster.(good for back pocket on jeans too) ALSO if I have to dress up or tuck my shirt I usually use a Galco King Tuk OR if I have to really dress up, which is rare, I use a 5.11 holster shirt and carry the G43X.

    My IWB is a Garrett Industries "silent thunder".
    The OWB is Tucker Gun Leather, HF1 or HF2, can't recall at the moment.
    Both these holster also fit my VP40, and my PPQ M2.

    You kinda answered your own question. Not being country, I have no idea what George Strait Wranglers are but I have a guess and yep, hard to shove a gun down the front of that pocket. You dress around your gun.
    Would a gun guy recognize it. Maybe, maybe not.

    We all have different builds and different environments we live in so what works for one might not work for another. That said, I still think the Kahr CW380 is an awesome choice for a pocket gun. Deep concealment might mean something else but I take it to generally mean it is going to take longer to get to that gun.
