IWB Carry and shirts

I carry IWB and for some reason I wind up with a bunch of little holes in my shirts, I believe from the rear sight. Anyone else have this issue and what solutions have you come up with? My wife is always on my about this.

I don't have that problem either, but have you tried changing the cant (angle), maybe rotating it 10 degrees forward or back. Also what position on your hip are you in? 3, 3:30, 4? Do you do a lot of sitting? In a hard chair? Maybe change the position of the holster to avoid that pinch point between your gun and chair. Just some thoughts/suggestions I had.

Do you have an after market rear sight? Never had that problem myself.

Carry at about four and with a little foreward cant. I'll take a look and see if changing the cant might make a difference. I do sit a lot with it since I'm almost always wearing it, that was the thought I has, that it happened while sitting.

I carry with a slight forward can't and sit pretty much all day. Might you be rubbing up against the chair?

Don't have an aftermarket sight, will say that the corners of the sight do feel shart or pointy and I can see how they could cause holes. I'm surprised nobody else has experienced this.

I have the same issue. Also, most of my shirts are all pilled on the right from OCing.

Have you figured out a solution? I mean come on, if we are the only ones having this issue we must be doing something wrong, right?

Been carrying for many years and have never had the problem you have. You must be doing something different than most of us.

I just realize my shirts get ruined quicker and don't worry about it...

Are your shirts long, so you are sitting on them? Are they a little tight?

If your shirts are long and you are sitting on the tail, as you shift around the fabric gets tight and is dragging across the sight. I have this problem with a knife that I carried in my back pocket.

They are on the long side but kinda have to be to conceal well, not tight though.

I have them in many of my tee shirts; mostly from my 1911's. I don't know if it's from the rear sights, rear of the slide, or what.

So far; no problems when carrying my plastic pistols like my M&P's or my CM9.

Tell her that the occasional shirt replacement is CHEAP INSURANCE!
