Firearms fashion issues.
Tamara notes fashion issues on open carry of firearms. Because I typically openly carry while in uniform, that's not a major issue with me. But occasionally, I do. This November, I am attending a wedding, in which I will be wearing an overpriced rented tuxedo with a mother-of-pearl bedecked Gold Cup. I've no intention of letting the Gold Cup be hidden, and am considering the question of how to effectively carry my wedding gun while tuxedo'd, in pants without belt loops. I don't own a black shoulder holster, and really would rather carry at belt level, anyhow. The trousers will be held up by braces.
I'm speculating on the concept of discreetly tacking a couple of temporary belt loops to the slacks, to be cut off at the end of the wedding. I have given some thought to creating a device to connect the belt to the suspenders, but I haven't the time or the materials or the patience.
We'll see how this goes.
