Full-size Colt 1991 in a Comp-tac Gurkha under a t shirt but over a wife-beater or under a camp shirt, guyaberra shirt or polo shirt.

P7 in an IWB holster, not that wide and my summer clothes dont change much from the winter ones.

Thanks for the info.

I have no problem concealing when wearing a jacket but without one it's an issue. Guess I need to think about getting a smaller pistol for summer carry.

I too carry a 2" snub during the summer, either in the front pocket with a nemesis holster or on the ankle with long pants. Neither can be detected![:

ETA: I just changed my rig to a galco leather front pocket holster or a desantis OWB at the 4:30-5:00 position. I tried a bunch of stuff out and found these two holsters work much better than what I was using.

Glock 27 in a Bagmaster "small" fanny pack.

Gotta love Bagmaster's lifetime warranty. I had my FP for 5 years before the zipper on the main compartment broke, I mailed it back to them and they sent me a brand new pack for free.

Kahr P9 carried in an Alessi IWB holster. Great carry combo for me.

Glock M27 in a strong-side belt holster under a loose polo shirt. Comfortable and concealable even in the AZ heat.

Kel-Tec P-32 in the summer. Inside waist band.

PS Its never jammed on me and I am pretty darn good shot with it.

When heavier clothes are needed however, I do not trust 32acp to go through a heavy jacket and still be affective. So the 32 is only for the summer.

Kel Tec P-11 in front pocket in Sidekick pocket holster....Cheap, Light, Always goes bang when I pull the trigger. The P-11 is the perfect accessory for any outfit.

Seecamp .32 in a Stellar Rigs plastic pocket holster that has a spare magazine carrier to break up the profile.

Never could understand how people can run around in Hawaiian shirts all the time and conceal a large handgun under it. Around here this look always screams "cop."

I can hardly wait for my two .380 Seecamps to come in - then I'll feel a lot better about this arrangement. A Seecamp is all I can manage in sweaty Virginia in the summertime - winter is different.
