I'm just curious how many people carry a full-size 24/7 pro as their concealed weapon. Also, if you would put in some height/weight numbers that would be helpful!

I'm about 5'8" 150lbs. I think a full frame pistol like my 24/7 would be hard for me to conceal, but maybe some of you are already doing it with some success.

I was using one as my CCW, in the .40 S&W. I am 5'7", 170 lbs, I carried in a SOB holster, and was totally concealed.

My 24/7 Pro 45acp will fit in my Crossbreed holster made for my PT145. I intend to carry the 24/7 Pro from time to time.

Don't have a full size 24/7, but I do plan on carrying my PT92. Going IWB. It's all in what you wear.

I've got a question. When you say "full size" are you referring to a non-compact version or the long-slide version??

When I think of full size 24/7's I think of the long slide versions, compacts don't even come to mind.

However, I've got a 24/7 Pro 9mm that I used to carry and never had a problem concealing it, whether in a shoulder holster or hip holster.

I carry a M&P .45 now(regular sized with 4.5 barrel) and it's about the same size as a 24/7 Pro(long slide). I have no problem concealing it either and I carry now predominantly on the hip. Only use the shoulder holster if I'm lazy(HAHA).

I do have somewhat of a advantage being 6'1" and 255lbs and wide shouldered, meaning I just buy oversized shirts and they tend to just hang off me. As to conceal a hip holster real easy. Like someone mentioned earlier, it's all in how you wear and what you wear.

When you enter the world of concealed carry, your whole wardrobe changes. Since I've been carrying I've basically just went up 1 size in my shirts and that remedied the problem. It also helps to wear darker colors, or colors that don't show a "print" i.e. black, blue, dark green, denim(shirts work well) or charcoal. I also found hawaiian shirts(in bigger sizes) really work as well.

I'm 6'4" and 285+ lbs. I carry my 24/7 Pro daily in a CrossBreed SuperTuck. I wear a loose fitting button up short sleeve shirt or a polo style shirt. Almost always untucked. As far as I know, I've never been made. Though I do get a little extra self conscious when I am sitting (like at a restaurant) or squatting down (like getting something off that bottom shelf at the store.) The butt of the gun tends to jut out a bit in those situations.

I carry my 4" 24/7 pro .45 as my ccw piece with no problem. I use an Uncle Mikes inside the waste band holster and stick it either in the front (safety on of course dont need to blow my balls off) or on my side canted forward.

Im 5'11 and 300 pounds. I wear a shirt size bigger (button down or polo not tucked in) and no one can tell I have a pistol on my side.
