    About the reach move. What is your thought about reaching with the non dominate hand, As long as you do not have magazines on you non dominate side, wouldn’t the shirt cover more of your gun as the dominate shoulder drops as the non dominate shoulder comes up. If concerned you could even keep your dominate arm lowered and resting against you body.
    This of course will not work if you are climbing the shelves. That takes both hands.

      John, I think that sounds good to me. It is going to vary a little by carry position too.
