This thing is scratching the hell out of me... I have an Alessi CQC-S arriving soon, but I tried to carry it earlier in the Vega IWB holster I use for my Walther P99 and that lasted about 5 minutes before I switched back to my P99. I don't want to put a wrap around Hogue or anything because I don't want to add to the girth of the grip. I've heard of sanding down one of the side panels but I don't really like that idea either... I also dont wear undershirts it's too hot in AZ. What do you do?

Or just take the edge off a panel. They're replaceable, you know. You're not permanently altering the gun.

Yeah I know, but does smoothing out the panel remove the scratching altogether? it seems I'd still feel it from the frame.

I like my P99 and don't feel the need to "upgrade" to a PPQ, and wouldn't the frame snag on the wife beater and print heavy?

You wear the wife beater between your skin and the pistol, and is not the cover garment. The pistol won't print any different against your cover garment.

I don't know what you mean by the frame still scratching you even if the grip panels aren't.

I have no idea how a grown man can get through a day without having an undershirt tucked in? Lol. All men should always have an undershirt on. ...yes even if you're wearing a tee shirt. Not only is it better for those around you, it stops the pistol from rubbing against you.

I always wear a T-Shirt under whatever cover garment I have one. I found this was the best way to keep the rough surface of the P30 from abrading my skin.

It's a Marine thing I think. 1 word; UnderArmor. The white tee's are a life saver and better than going without, especially in climates like AZ. I can speak with some authority on that subject.

+1 Agree - I have always worn an undershirt since being in the Navy.
It feels uncomfortable if I don't. Always acts as a buffer between the grip of my gun and my skin.

But everyone has a different opinion on feel and comfort.

Get a PPQ or, wear a wife beater.
Lol love it.

Personally, it does not bother me. I carry my P30 every single day off duty and never had an issue.

Undershirts in casual clothing "just because" are for tool bags.

That's the way I looked at it when I was in the marines, and still look at it today. Let me guess.......undershirts, corframs, khakis and a tucked in collared shirt for proper civilian attire..........am I right?

I was at an IRR muster this weekend. There was ONE dude out of the 4-500 that was dressed in "proper civilian attire." The rest of us dressed like normal human beings that realize "****bag" and "dweeb" are not synonymous with "professional."

Oh, don't forget blousing the back of your shirts and using those shirt stays that attach to your socks, you know, the one's that pull the hair from your legs where you cross them at the knee.

I live in So. Texas. It's hot here too. I often wear an undershirt made of a wicking fabric. I go AWIB with or w/o an undershirt and my P-30, hasn't been a problem.

I guess that's the difference in dressing like a professional and dressing like a delinquent. lol I don't think I'm a toolbag for wearing an undershirt, I wear it because it just makes sense to. Lets weigh it out, an aggressively stippled pistol on my side rubbing against my civilian love handles or or a nice shirt to help keep it from scratching me.

Lets now talk about casual attire. I wear an undershirt under everything I wear even if I don't have a pistol on my hip. Even if that means I'm wearing an undershirt and a graphic Tee. Some of the things an undershirt does is absorb salt, sweat/urea and provide a barrier for dead skin. This does a few things, one of which is prolong an over shirts wear life. That's day to day and the entire life of the shirt. It also keeps you from that "ripe" smell if you're having an extra active day.

If you're in the IRR then that means you must have done less than eight years active and I'm going to assume you did one 4 year contract and didn't reenlist. I think you didn't spend enough time in service to appreciate the professional level of enlistment and to realize why things were done the way they were. It sounds to me you hold some negative feelings to your service or to the authorities above you. I understand that kind of thought and I probably have some of it myself but to just say anyone that wears an undershirt is toolbag, ****bag or dweeb is pretty arrogant and rude.

And to rag on someone for standing by the oath they took seriously is really petty.

Ooo boy! So wearing undershirts means you take an oath more seriously than someone who doesn't wear undershirts?

My case has been proven. Thanks for playing!
