Hi, definitely better outdoors than in a shirt. This is probably Dysdera crocata, a woodlouse hunter. They have relatively big fangs for the size of the spider. The fangs move toward each other in the horizontal plane to pinch, puncture, inject venom, and crush or cut the abdomen of its prey. Most spiders evolved to settle for just the puncture and injection fang action.
