Though my youngest son just turned four and is steadily transitioning away from needing to be worn, there are times that necessitate the Tula and a little babywearing (err…kid wearing. He’d be upset if he knew that I called him a baby.) So how do I do it?
- Placement: My son is old enough to be back worn; therefore, I move my pistol to the Appendix Inside the Waistband position giving me free and unobstructed access to my Springfield Mod.2.
- Patterns: Lots and lots of patterns. Florals, polka dots, stripes — they all work to break up the gun’s silhouette and help me conceal despite having a kid strapped to my back.
- Shirt Cut: The cut of the shirt plays into how well I can conceal the double stack Springfield. The flowier fabrics do a better job of concealing, allowing me to carry the larger gun.
- Tula Positioning: Positioning the waistband under my shirt and against the gun acts to keep the gun from printing through the shirt while also boasting the added benefit of pulling the gun even tighter into my abdomen, adding to concealment.
CC Setup: Springfield Mod.2 in StealthGearUSA AIWB holster with NexBelt CCW belt.
