    If it is 100 degrees outside....and you want to Carry your concealed weapon...what would you choose ?
    I like the Smith & Wesson model 638 snubby (aluminum frame stainless .38 Special humpback bodyguard
    5 shooter) in a pocket holster with five rounds of 129 grain +P Hydra Shoks :fuss: :rolleyes:

    My concealed carry is a 1911 and in 100 deg I wear a Nice "T" shirt and a deep concealed belly rig. Works for me.

    Glock 27 (baby glock) .40SW. That's what I carry off duty (and as a back up on duty). It's quite often over 10 degress where I live. Never had a problem.

    I like my S&W 36 .38 Special, "Chief Special", round butt, 2" barrel, with Carol Special Agent Rosewood grips. Then I stoke it with hollow points +P. I bobbed the hammer and it fits nice in a inside the waist band holster or back pocket.
     
  10. Well, guys lets get a woman in here! I qualified with 2 guns on my CCW a S/W 9mm and a .38 specia. I did not feel to comfortable with the .38 and was also having trouble with the cylinder lining up with the barrel. I now carry a Beretta.380 model 84f 3 3/4" barrel and I loved it.... until I shot a glock.!! Now, I want a new glock !!! MissSharpShooter

    I carry a 1911 in all weather. Consistency pays. I just drape a "T" shirt over it, and go on. My holsters have a sweat barrier to protect the gun. :usa:

    S&W M&P 9 full size year round. Summer just means I wear a t-shirt with an oversized, short sleeve button shirt (unbuttoned and untucked) over it to cover instead of a sport coat or jacket.

    If it's not too hot I have a Galco leather belt holster which will hold my CZ sub-compact quite nicely and as others noted I wear a light overshirt which I purposely buy a bit large to cover. I also have a small buttpack which can hold my pistol as well as my wallet and I simply need to clip it around my waist and go. Perhaps not the most "stylish" - but functional. I also have a .22 magnum derringer which will fit nicely in one of the small pockets of some cargo shorts. I bought a small screw top match case for camping and put a D-ring clip on it and it will hold 8rds of CCI 40gr JHP Maxi-Mag ammo and simply clips on to a belt loop. o_O

    I'm wondering, what would be better. A metal frame or a polymer frame in very hot weather. I'm guessing polymer, and I do not like polymer guns.
