I am trying to determine the best auto for concealed carry during the summer months. During the winter, I can get away with carrying my Kimber TLE/RL II fullsize,but during the summer, I'm at a bit of a loss. I carried a Glock fullsize for a while,but it was entirely too big. I've been carrying my Sig P226/229,depending on my attire, but they're too large,as well. I usually try to keep my pistol in an inside pants hip or kidney position, but the butt of all these stick out too far from a T-shirt, especially when I lean over. Keeping shorts and T-shirt in mind, I would love any tried and proven suggestions on a summer carry pistol/carrying configuration for my current pistol. Thanks in advance for any info.

PS. I also have a Springfield Ultra Compact, but it's having some technical difficulties. My preferred manufacturers are Sig, Springfield, Kimber, HK, and to a lesser extent, Glock and Walther. I prefer models in .40 S&W/.45 ACP. Again, thanks for any suggestions.

Send your SA back to the mfr for repair. They have great warranty service. Then go shoot the hell out of it and when your satisfied with it's operation you'll have your CCW piece.

I know many will scoff at me but during the summer I carry a FEG PA63. It is light and fairly compact and fires the 9mm makarov round. Best of all they are cheap.. very cheap, you can easily find them for less than 150 bucks. Mine has been very reliable and quite handy, It is very similiar to a makarov but with an alloy frame (no rust problems!) The double action pull sucks but the single is acceptable, both are fine for a short range defensive weapon.
During the colder months I carry a BHP.

The best Auto for concealed carry is the Cooper Mini...the Toyota is just too big and bulky...

Glock 30--not as slim as a 1911, but compact nevertheless

commander sized 1911 (SW 1911sc/pd, SA champion, kimber CPD)

for some reason or other,i just can't get into a kahr.handled a few,checked out the triggers,etc,just don't strike me as comfortable,etc.kinda sucks,cause it would be a nice choice,but not much i can do about it,really.

I vote for the Glock 19 or 30

Another +1 for Glock 30. My carry weapon for the last year. I use a Bianchi pro 100 IWB ususally in the front. Its very easy to conceal with shorts and a tee and I like the 10 rd capasity.
