Minimum order - $150. I don't need 5 of them, but they look like a great deal!! Depending on the quality, I usually see them costing about twice as much as they want.

Hmm, can't imagine you'd get a very good vest for $40. I've seen this vest reviewed in a chopper magazine I get, the comments were very favorable.

They also offer this one:

If your vest stays snapped shut, this could be a great outter wear device. But once you vest is open, the gun side will droop down because of the gun weight in the conealment pocket, unless of course your carrying something that is the weight of a LCP or maybe an Airweight 38.

It would seem that all the vests in the above links are for medium or large semi-autos. Are there any made for say a SP101? Sometimes I don't feel like wearing a holster but would still like to carry. Any suggestions?

The NRA online store has a pigskin carry vest for about $65. I think it still accomadates larger guns, but has holster you can velcro in for smaller ones. I haven't seen one except in the pictures, but I am thinking seriously about giving one a try.

Argyle, thanks for the direction. Those boar hide vests look pretty good, especially for $59. Never had anything made with boar hide. Is it just like any other leather?

I think it is generally a little stiffer and a little more abrasion resistant than cowhide. The grain is much rougher - like a football, not like a belt or saddle.

New York reload - just carry 2 guns, one on each side.
Problem solved!

Try Cabela's for inexpensive photographer's type vests. I got one a few years ago for $29.95 and wear it most summer days.

Fall/Winter I like LLBean fleece vests. Lots of colors and often on sale.

For a heavier vest look at Duluth Trading Company. They sell alot of work clothes and have various vests similar to Carhart's.

Good luck.

holy thread revival batman!

I'm not sure how I ran across this vest but did a thread search for concealment vests but I ran across one of these recently

My link not working....company is Blue Stone Safety and the item is a concealment vest www.bluestonesafety.com Can find it in the concealment jackets and clothing section. There are several youtube reviews of this vest as well.

I try and avoid looking too tactical but I have been wearing some sort of left over/behind military inspired piece of clothing since the 80's. Perhaps I need a fashion makeover, but I'm just comfortable wearing some sort of cargo pant or short, or a tac boot and rayban sunglasses. I doubt that I would combine the vest with cargo/tac pants. I'll even wear the vest with my uniform pants, sort of dresses it down a bit in a rugged kinda way.

Oh and no relation to the seller or company etc, I think I'm going to buy one. Another concealment option when you don't want to use a holster. Read a few on line comments that said "screams I got a gun!" Claims to hold a med to large SA or smaller revolver, left or right side. I saw one vid where the guy used it at the range and he seemed pretty comfortable using it to draw and shoot from.

Just looking for a vest myself and stumbled across some at Bluestone Safety. Got to do a little more research but might be worth a try.
