Only thing that's really noticeable is the clips with IWB. I carried a 9 a few times into the office when I was going shooting after work and didn't want to have to stop by home. Drape wasn't bad. Definitely not invisible carry, but no visible "gunprint". Clips make it pretty obvious to anyone who knows, but they usually don't care.

I don't own a gun but I always thought a bra holster would be nice: Flashbang Bra Holster

Lightbulb Attitudes are changing, even Chicago now has to tolerate CCW.

My town has pretty much zero violent crime, yet 1 in 10 residents carry. I'm more concerned about running into a black bear (they're out and hungry right now) or a pack of coyotes than any human threat.
As far as "fashion" goes, I have a Milt Sparks Versa Max 2. It's not invisible, but close enough -- open carry is fine here, so there's no worries about printing, just needs to be sufficiently concealed that I don't scare the tourists if I stop in at Starbucks for a red eye.

If you need secure storage that doesn't scream "Gun!", check out the various Pac-Safe products with eXomesh and anchor points for a padlock. You can attach a soft carry case onto your regular laptop security cable at your desk, avoid casual handling/theft without drawing attention.

Not against handguns but if I had one I'd hide it in my purse.

Smart carry or thunderwear. I wear suits. With this option I can take off my jacket and the gun will still be concealed even with tailored clothing.

I wanted to do the whole shoulder rig thing but my suit jackets are too tailored for that to be a viable option.

they aren't designed for actual pistols, they are a man purse posing as a holster. Got my hopes up for a second, that could be a cool option for "semi-open carry". Not quite as in your face as a exposed pistol but not IWB. Thinking it would be nice for road trips and when your sitting down a lot.

Not if you do it correctly.

I don't own a firearm, but I noticed in the Cabelas catalog that there are some women's handbags with easy-access pockets for handguns. I think one of the brands (or maybe it's a style name) is Pistol Packin' Mama (not joking!). Anyway, check their website. As far as being concealed directly on your body, I have no idea.

Have you lived in NY or NJ ?

In New Jersey, its very difficult to get a concealed carry permit. Those who have it are typically cops or people who retired from the armed forces. Fact is that its nearly impossible and not worth ones time to go through the process of obtaining a permit.

Basically, we have the lowest gun ownership within US. I don't want to say more, as it will lead to unwanted political bickering.
